  1. AW come on let kick that cow pie.
  2. Howdy; All gun ranges now closed in Ontario Canada. Ontario has the most handguns of any province in Canada.
  3. Howdy; I use Tightgroup for WB power factor loads, very strong loads. Trying to back it down for cowboy had to go back to Red Dot. It makes a nice clean rifle load.
  4. Great as a lumberjack, guess the hob nailed boot are good.
  5. It all sounds expense and lot of work. I use fat 250grain bullet and a reasonable load of smokeless powder. Its a 45 if you need less go o 38s.
  6. Howdy ; We need a secret cowboy greeting.
  7. Howdy, Many year back sitting in front of a motel with a case of Beer and cowboy guns cleaning them after shooting at OWSA match. Sheriff drive in and we go OH OH! Says howdy talks a bit with a see you at the range and peeles out. As we were all Canadians we expected the hammer of THRO to hit us. What a cool dude, great place.
  8. Howdy; Lyman dies work BUT had to cut off the bottom of the seating crimp die to get it to crimp. Used 44/40 shell holder for Scofield cases as some will not fit a 45 colt shell holder.
  9. Howdy; Marlin rifles need heavy bullets , 250 grain others, not so much a 200 would be a good all round bullet. At least the spotters get a fair chance to see hear the hit. Flog that dead pony!

      Well, the picture on Bullseye's site shows a walnut stocked gun, and implies this is a new import batch.   You're in Canada, which does not prohibit import from Norinco company.  U.S. black listed imports from them 15 years ago, so IAC has imported 97s to US from that time.


      IF this is new production with all the improvements that the IAC batches had from 2006 forward, that is a killer price!   A big IF. 


      You probably want to get a look at them - a close look.


      You may want a standard gun rather than a trench gun if using it for Cowboy.    And a trench does not add anything but style points for WB.

  11. WELL Howdy; I could not resist. Ran down and got the Winchester 73. So for now just looking to shoot it. I like the idea of not dumping huge dollars. Please let me know what you have found out with these rifles. I have been a Marlin only shooter for years. Near Toronto Ontario, Eastern time zone.

    Thank you


  12. Hello from Canada. always enjoy your stuff. Best  wishes  VICIOUS

      Thank you!  Glad to hear B)

  13. Marlin 1894 have there own set of needs. So it is just simple and easy to use a 250 RNFP and shoot.
  14. Howdy; 250 RNFP, PITA to try and get 200 to not blow powder into your eyes over the bolt.
