  1. I've been using 3.0 gr of Hodgden Clays and a 140 gr TCFP (Chey-Cast) Hi-Tek coated for my 38 spl loads for years. They have not failed me with any knockdown yet, as long as I hit it, in revolvers (NMVs) or rifles. JC
  2. Been using this load for years in my Ruger NMVs and Marlin 94 cowboy comps... 140 gr TCFP, plain lead or Hi-Tek coated (Chey-Cast bullets) 3.0 gr Hodgden Clays Fed and Win SPP Mostly Starline brass, but lots of Fed, Win, Rem, and others too. My Ruger SP101 and S & W 67 like it too. JC
  3. Try Outlaw Gambler at www.classicoldwestarms.com. He just refurbished one of mine - excellent work.
  4. My favorite JR books are "Killing Floor", "One Shot" and "Bad Luck and Trouble". I've read the whole series, these are the ones I bought. My pick to play JR for the next movie, if there is one, is Kevin Durand, Canadian actor who played Little John in Russel Crowe version of Robin Hood. Good actor and he's the right size.
  5. Think I'll read Lonesome Dove again...then Cole & Hitch...currently on latest True West...gonna watch Once Upon a Time in the West tonight...
  6. 140 grain TCFP over 3.0 grains of Hodgden Clays: rifle or revolver, knockdowns no problem unless missed!
  7. Finished reloading, so clean guns. Set up a couple of tables in the garage, put on rig and work on gun handling and transitions for both CAS and WB. Read, watch movies. Since there's no racing, watch racing movies: LeMans, Ford v Ferrari, Secretariat... Whatever else comes to mind...
  8. Very sad news indeed. Possied with him many times at HOW. A fine gentleman. R.I.P Big Al
  9. No IMSA, no F1, no Indy Car...I guess the marbles will have to do...not bad though.
  10. Will there be additional edits to the current (January 2019) Shooter's Handbook? I'm need to print a new copy. JC
  11. DD: I've been using my RCBS 510 scale for 40 plus years and am unaware of the magnetizing issue. When a reloading session is done, I remove the scale pan and holder but leave the beam in its cradle. I also re-zero and verify with check weights for each major reloading session which is usually twice a year. That's been the routine for the past 20 or so years with no problems.


  12. I shoot from the left shoulder, used to pull 2 with right hand and load and run action. Arthritic thumb would cause the occasional fumble so went to single loading...thumb complains less and I don't fumble no more, and...I think it's actually a shade quicker for me. Joe
