  1. Howdy; I use the older nitro 27 GOLD hull shells for 50 yard shooting.
  2. Howdy. Yes I have used TITEGROUP in 3/4 ounce load with listed load. Never doing that again. Harsh recoil snap. PITA to measure such small amount. Not enough volume of powder to hold the wad up in place. TITEGROUP only if last ounce of powder I own for shotgun. Pistols or revolver loading TITEGROUP work OK for me.

      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.

  4. 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


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

      Thank you!  Glad to hear B)

  6. Marlin 1894 have there own set of needs. So it is just simple and easy to use a 250 RNFP and shoot.
  7. Howdy; 250 RNFP, PITA to try and get 200 to not blow powder into your eyes over the bolt.
  8. HOWDY; I use 19 lb hammer springs on a original Blackhawk for silhouette shooting as less spring gets slow hammer fall.
  9. HOWDY; A DQ in Canada, NAAh we are to polite to do that. maybe.
  10. Heck; I spill 10 bucks worth of beer a year but I still drink.
  11. SO are most or at least half of the cowboys now using them. As to hiding improper bullets, sounds expense.
  12. Howdy; Just curious what percentage of shooters are now using powder coated type bullets at the larger match's? How common and is this a rapidly growing trend towards this type bullet?
  13. HOWDY; If you have not heard a good rumor by noon, START ONE!
  14. Howdy; Guess I am lucky as my cheap PARA G.I. Expert has worked well these years, even with my ham fisted loading, mucking around with whatever I could mess up.
