  1. This photo was taken several weeks before he past. He wore the scarf to cover the Cancer tumor. He is completing his Book , assisted by Mark Twain. The Book was published in a two volume set. This photo is in the book.
  2. With a 250 gr RN and 7 gr. of Unique, the Bond is a handful. I use brass 410's and load #4 buck, makes for a nice shot load. 3" 410's are fun to shoot, but can be brutal !!! My EDC load is the Hornady critical defence 180 gr 45 colt.
  3. My Bond "Snake Slayer", 45 colt/.410, Engraving by Jim Downing, The Gun Engraver,
  4. 5.4 grains of Unique ,a 200 grain pill and a tight roll crimp worked for me in both Rifle and Revolver. Unique likes a nice tight crimp. Bullets sized to .429"
  5. All my brass 12 & 16 shells always had a slight roll on the case mouth, helps in many ways.
  6. Thanks for the purchase.

  8. I wipe my Hammer sides and face after every stage, no cap sucks and usually four out of five caps are still on the cones and must be lifted off at the unloading table. Polish those Hammer faces and keep them clean ! I can not see nail polish on the cones doing much past the first stage.
  9. I tried both 3/4 & 7/8 oz loads, back to 1 oz loads. lot more forgiving and better for KO targets.
  10. Johnny Meadows, has the 16 ga. reamer for chamber & forcing cone. He did my 97/16 several Years ago. Makes a big difference.
  11. I shoot a pair of Custom shop Colt 44WCF. Also fitted for 44 Special cylinders. There are many that shoot Colts, for SASS/CAS.
  12. I have stated many times, if I am ever restricted to one Rifle it will be my Rossi 92/44 mag. I have a folding leaf barrel sight for 100 yards and lower. A tang sight for 200 yards and beyond. The piece is very accurate at 200 yards with a 240 gr. lead or Nosler RNJSP.
  13. The primer flash hole drill is a # 46 drill, The hole should be .081" 1/16" = .0625"
  14. 1/16" is not the primer flash hole size. It is a number drill size, IIRC. I have it written down some where. The proper size is on the end of the Lyman flash hole tool. I use this for my case prep.
  15. Pietta's Lazer engraving is supurb. They have been doing it for awhile. My Hickok 1851 Pietta is lazer engraved.
  16. I will be at BT, and shooting my Brassers. Lets plan on an evening over dinner of discussion on the topic at hand. How many will be there shooting the brass shells or have a sample for show & tell ? I only do a roll crimp on the case when it needs a touch up, or when they are new. And I do not anneal the case mouths. You can, BUT! be careful how far down you go. Sage Rider annealed some case's and went to far, they expanded in the chamber and he had to drive them out with a cleaning rod. I would say, no more than a 1/4".
  17. Parson John, did not expect his topic to last this long, quite a thread I must say.
  18. A few years back I bought a Grocery bag full of Alcan 16 ga. wads for brass shells, the Vendor was happy to take my $5.00. The stash included both OPC's & 1/2, 3/8" cushion wads. The 1/2" are lubed, (dry now). All wads are in original boxes. 500 to the box.
  19. Griff; Next time you visit, bring your brass shells and we will, Get-er-Done Pard. Have your cases clean and ready to go.
