  1. All the .32-20/.32 H&R mags were produced on the full-size original model frame. None were ever factory made on the New Vaquero or Single Six frame. The Single Six frame, sometimes called the "Vaquerette" or "Vaquerito", is too small to be practical. It has been done by custom gunsmiths, but the bullet has to be seated way deep, like a wadcutter, in order to work.
  2. I've got ten boxes of Hornady factory ammo - 200 rounds, and maybe half a dozen more rounds in a partial box. Can an individual even ship ammo?
  3. There were a few Special Edition .32 H&R mag/.32-20 convertible Vaqueros made in 2004 - under 300 units...? Buckeye Sports also commissioned Ruger to make similar convertible Blackhawks for them.
  4. Twelve pistols/revolvers, and two rifles. The revolvers are 3 screw convertible Blackhawks that occasionally get used in Cowboy matches with the 9mm cylinders.
  5. In the days of Modern category, I would occasionally shoot a pair of adj sight ROA's, and you'd be amazed how many people said, "You can't shoot C&B's in Modern".
  6. Currently sold out, but the stuff appears to be made anyway. https://www.sportsmansguide.com/product/index/ultramax-9mm-luger-rnl-125-grain-500-rounds-remanufactured?a=1593341 This one looks kind of sketchy, who knows. https://bullseyeshootingsupplies.com/product/9mm-125-round-nose-lead/
  7. Krasner attributes the drop in convictions in part to police submitting weaker evidence or more cases being tossed out by judges because witnesses didn’t show up in court. If you don't show up for your hearing, your case is dismissed?? The police commissioners name is Outlaw.
  8. I got an answer back from Taylor's this morning about the groove diameter, they are .357".
  9. Closest thing I've got to small space guns are a Beretta CX4 Storm, a Remington XP-100, and an MBA Gyrojet. Some 25-30 years ago, I had a '72 and a '76 Corvette - just like CAS, ya gotta have a backup, doncha know.
  10. Unless ya got a doctor appointment or somesuch, what in the world do us old retired folks care what time it is anymore?
  11. Would such a proposed rule change apply only to allowing .38/.357 to be added, or could I try to push 110 grain cast bullets @ 1400 fps in my .25-20's to make 154 PF?
  12. I've read about rifle round counts of 7 - 10, but I've rarely encountered a rifle count less than 10... maybe 9 on a very few occasions. I suppose it varies regionally. DON'T MESS WITH THE .40+ CALIBER REQUIREMENT. You can "expand" interest in ANY category or side match by waiving or changing the rules on caliber, guns, sights, shooting style, leather, costuming, ammunition, smokeless/black powder, etc.
  13. The short answer is no... conditionally. The breech block has to rotate up between cartridges, so there is very little leeway in cartridge overall length. If you could load .45 Schofield cartridges to 1.60", they'd work as well as .45 Colts.
  14. Taurus... I spent five years as a Gun Room Manager for Sportsman's Warehouse, and sent back as many Taurus revolvers for warranty service/repairs than everything else we sold combined. The Judge was the biggest turd of all. Now of course, most of them work, or Taurus would be out of business, but they have a lot more problems than other brands. The autos were pretty reliable - I think I only sent two of them back under warranty, and one was just a sight screw the customer screwed up trying to get it out.
  15. I've loaded .25acp before. Still have the dies, brass, bullets, but I haven't shot my chrome plated, pink gripped Raven pimp gun in 20 years.
  16. Well, I'm kind of puzzled. I bought 150 pieces a few years back from Sportsman's Warehouse when they closed it out, and put them in three MTM 50 round boxes labeled "450 Marlin" and marked A, B, and C. A and B have 50 loaded rounds each, and C is empty, but I can't find the brass.
  17. Yep, ArmsCor. I've shot a Rock Island branded one a fair amount in WB, and no problems, as have other WB shooters around here.
  18. Got one, thanks. It went up 4¢ though, cuz it was $299.99.
  19. If I told you my secret honey hole for Red Dot, it wouldn't be a secret, would it. There are thirty powders that will work fine for this game in .45 Colt, and none of them cause "side spatter". Lead shaving isn't caused by the powder, but rather a timing or wear issue. Revolvers are going to have a certain amount of gas escaping at the barrel/cylinder gap - there's no avoiding that, except for the 1895 Nagant, of course. There are also easily fifty recognizable commercial casters, many mentioned above, and probably another five hundred or thousand who cast for local shooters & clubs. There used to be a shooter here who brought his cast bullets to nearly every shoot, but I haven't seen him for years. The lead? Could have been anything from pure to 25 BHN, but they were cheap. We're shooting at "OK Corral distances", so don't fret too much over an exact powder, bullet weight, alloy, case, hull, wad, or primer. Well, unless you're one of those folks who shoots "tuned" guns with 12 pound springs that won't work reliably with anything but Federals.
  20. Nobody makes a rifle anymore, and I think Hornady & Starline have both discontinued it. I see some factory ammo in stock (maybe) for $4 - $6 a round, and RCC lists cases at $5.50 ea, but that's it. That said, I'm pretty sure I've got 50 unfired cases, probably Hornady. You're not going to like the price, but that's a third of my supply... if i can even find them. I'll check in the morning.
  21. Bore diameter is land to land - groove diameter is what I want an answer for. But, in all fairness, I asked for "bore diameter", so...
  22. I would say, "That depends". No one seems to know for sure if the barrels are .355" or .357". If they're .355", I would expect the manufacturer would make some sort of modification to prevent a .38/357 cylinder from being installed. I have an email in to Taylors about it. (EDIT) Well, that wasn't any help, but I guess he answered my question 100% accurately, as asked.
  23. ln 1979, two F-106's from the Montana Air National Guard were authorized to perform a fly-over of the Dillon Labor Day parade. For whatever reason, they flew way lower, and slower, than authorized and one of them flew through the top of the town's grain elevator. The plane and pilot, Captain Joel Rude, were both lost.
