  1. The 2.3 overhead cam engine , was given 4 valves per cylinder and Twin turbos and other race goodies and could put out over 1,000 horsepower.

    I had a 2.3 in my ford Courier a truck built for ford using mostly Mazada Parts .

  2. Real Cowboys Seldom had Two Matching Handguns , My Grandad started out with a .36 Navy colt and a Hawken,,,, To which he added a SXS 10 Ga. ,,,,,

    Then he added a SAA in .45 Colt ,,,,,, Then he added a 73 in .38 WCF.  Then he got a Sharps,,,, Then some 23 years after he got his Navy He got a SAA in .38 WCF. but kept the Navy , Which he gave to my Grandmother ... To keep vermin at bay Two legged of otherwise..

    He never did have a matching set of guns even when He became quite prosperous. He was a Rancher that got into all kinds of businesses'...

  3. Ya All is Missing the Picture ,,, the 6.8 has been around for decades in the form of .270 Winchester ....

    The new uses the same bullets .... Nothing New .

    It may prompt the development of new Bullets for this caliber and I see this as a plus . Charles Newton developed Big Beltless cases in Calibers of .308, .358, 

    He also worked with calibers of .323, 338, 375 and .277 ( 6.8 ) he didn't like the performance of bullets in .323 and .338 on game the bullets blew-up at the speeds he attained . He decided that the market for a .375 was to small to be viable. and the the .277 was so vastly " Over-bore " with the powders then available as to be unsuitable ... He made his own .277 ( 6.8 ) bullets. as his work proceeded the introduction of the "Very fine 270 Winchester" . 

    As an aside he and my Dad where good friends and corresponded regularly. 

    Like John ( Jack ) Conners I too am a fan of the .270 Win.

  6. I can load my 66 in .38 WCF over the Top or through the Gate with the same amazing Speed :P ...

    But depending on props is how I choose to load it's a 50-50 thing ... Some stage instructions allow one to load the extra round on the clock any time in the shooting string.  When I load over the Top I use the cartridge to press down the lifter, far enough to push the bullet into the chamber with the muzzle canted down .

    I can't remember the last time I jacked out in an unintended manner...

  7. .22 caliber guns are not legal for adults' as main match guns, They are fine for the Youngster's .

    The Blackhawk limits what classes you can shoot in, the NMV does not , other than Caliber.

    A Uberti Cattleman in .38 WCF. allows you to shoot in ANY category, that is allowed for your age ... Except Frontiersman!

    The .38 WCF is the very best caliber for FC / FCD ( Black Powder )

    If you want to be just like the Herd get a .38 /.357 Ruger, the .38 spl. is the second cheapest caliber to load ( .32 S.W. long is cheaper but not legal when you come to Canada )

    By the By Welcome to the Fun !!!
