  1. See what fits best and feels right for you. I have a pair of SS omv in .357 which run great shooting with a full load of Goex ff. I also have a pair of USFA in 44 spcl that shoots great with 44 Russian and to really have fun I switch over the cylinders to 44-40 and a full load to much fun. But my main match guns are a sort of pair of ROA's one has a 5.5" barrel and the other 7.5" barrel. My wife has a pair of Smokewagons .38 spcl she loves. If you go to a match no doubt if you ask questions plenty of folks would offer to let you try theirs. You can never have to many pairs. Just my 2 cents worth Hochbauer
  2. Nice video....Was also wondering why the 2nd cushion wad. Our technique is pretty similar. I use a 1 ounce square load of goex ff which I drop using a Lyman bp measure so that is set for the amount. To seal them I have found the hotmelt technique works well except for the little stringy thingers I get sometimes. Sadly my 87 does not like them at all. I will have to look into that conversion thing for large primers for the mec jr. When I load plastic hulls I do everything on the mec including the powder. But I seat the nitro card through the fingers push it down enough to get it started and place the wad then push them both in at the same time then drop the shot. My mec is older so it has the red fingers, am not sure if that would really matter. Thats my 2 cents worth Hochbauer
  3. I am ok with small primers but got Lg pistol primers fairly local to me at Shydas in Lebanon. But they limited it to only a 1000 per person. The price was about 35.00 if I recall correctly. That was for federal primers did not look at others. Hochbauer
  4. The large tumbler it will come with most of the steel pins (sorry some got vacuumed up) and fairly full bottle of the solution and brass separator. The machine works just fine but I prefer the old fashioned way of dry tumbling. I am asking only $120.00 for all unless you have something interesting to trade. FACE to FACE ONLY...will not ship. I am in central Pa so if you are not all that far we can work meeting out or will be at the PA state match. Hochbauer
  5. I have switched to the roller handle on my 450 and then wrapped it with a few layers of that self stick bandage and would not switch back to the ball. I switched my square deal to a roller handle too. Hochbauer
  6. Just curious but how little were they asking for it? I had a pair of OMV in 44-40 that were an NRA spcl edition with 6.5 in barrels for some reason did not care for them ...of course had sellers remorse after that. But now have a pair of USFA 44spcl and have 44-40 cylinders. Very sweet to shoot with 44 Russian if I shoot smokeless. Hochbauer
  7. Not to hijack this thread as I had a 38-55 question how can I tell which length brass to buy? Its for a Winchester 94. Hochbauer
  8. I put the Slix nipples on my ROA's and only use the Rem 10. I have some 11 but just use them to clear the nipples. Wont even try the CCI Hochbauer
  9. Nickel City I will take them...where do I send the coin. I can do paypal if you like.
  10. I purchased these loading tubes several years ago but cannot recall from where. Hoping someone can point me in the right direction. Thanks in advance Hochbauer
  11. I have loaded BP subs but if you do stick to 3f the 2f is like trying to get charcoal briquettes down the powder measure. That said I load Goex 2f through my Dillon with no problems and for my shotgun a MEC jr also with Goex 2f. If you don't reload at this time would be a good skill to acquire, as I hate to imagine how much that ammo is going to cost you. Enjoy your new toy! Hochbauer
  12. I have been shooting a hammered dbl for the past several years. It kind of throws me off if I shoot a hammerless one. But there is a 97 in the safe that comes out on the rare occasion that I shoot wildbunch or for whatever reason at the time to shoot smokeless. My usual category is frontiersman so the hammered double is what I have been shooting. But to add to my madness I have been playing with an 87 and am liking it. Not sure if I will shoot that at a big match but time will tell and the hammered double will come along just in case. Just my 2 cents worth Hochbauer
  13. That rifle would go real nice with my pistols.....pretty gun. I have handled my friends Miroku and it was real nice out of the box. Why wait for using the Holy Black? Sgt H
  14. Welcome to the wonderful world of shooting capguns. Lots of tricks to the trade. I preload some tubes with the powder charge that I like and put 10 in a ziplock bag so when I have to load they are ready and do not have or want to mess with a powder flask. I had gotten what was called speed loader tubes cannot think of from where. Then have a container with my lubed wads and for the balls. I did change out the nipples on the guns and that helped make them more reliable. When you are at a match and see someone shooting them don't be shy and ask questions
  15. Here is my jogging stroller cart set up to carry 3 long guns muzzles up (sorry guns were in safe) If you would like other pics drop me a line. The holders on the tray in front have inserts to hold the pistols and there is also an ammo box that goes on the front. The top is removable so the cart folds down easily once off. The funny thing is that I have a 4 gun rugged gear cart but that is basically my wife's. Hochbauer
