  1. And on a low humidity day I spit on the front of the cylinder at the unloading table, spin it and its ready to reload. Note I am not suggesting the old buffalo hunter practice of urinating to remove black powder fouling. Fordyce
  2. For me that does not seem fun. I do the Old#4 Palvec method one tube at a time in the shop chair then stand up and 650 for a hundred then repeat. I do 500 rounds at a loading session and then do something else. Fordyce
  3. I am a gunfighter but count me out, split pistols are just another gunfighter skill that provides interest and is a skill to learn or why else do we play a game? Fordyce

    I am working up a BAMM F N  Mauser 98 Columbian 30/06 and tried some stripper clips but they must not be 98 specific.  They fit 5 rounds and seem correct on width of the slot.  When I try to load the clip can go down in the magazine and the nose of the bullets can hang on the feed ramp.  Any Ideas?


    What is the target distances you shoot in your matches?

    Thanks Fordyce

      I’m afraid that I can’t help you with your mauser, I’ve never owned one. My BAMM rifles are either krags or ‘03 Springfields. Our range is pretty wide but only about 50 yds deep. I wish we used smaller targets than what the match director chooses. It would separate the men from the boys. Good luck on your rifle but you might have to think outside the box to get something to work with your case being a .30-06 and the rifle’s stripper guides being for a mauser caliber.

    I don't see the "recommendation" as an absolute. I read the WTC's on the wire and print out and note the yearly changes in yellow in the three handbooks. My RO pins predate the ones with a year date on them. Condemn me if you will. Fordyce
  8. Yes this is what I did. I just fill one tube and load 100 then refill. Hand pecking 10 tubes full at a time would not be my idea of fun. Fordyce
