    Woodworking, Anything about the west, cowboy type guns, shooting them, reloading , tinkering with guns,,, "mine".
  1. I only shoot real cowboy calibers 44-40, 38-40 and 32-20. No .45. Go ahead and flame, don't care ,,, that's me. I've got Colts in all three, but I've got OMV Rugers in just 44-40 and 38-40. I've got a spare pair in 357/38 that I'd like to have barrels and cylinders made for them in 32-20. That's doable. Ahhhh, one day ,,, maybe. YMMV, Isom
  2. To me ,,,,,, it seemed like the Graf's burned a little cleaner than the Goex. " AGAIN ,,, TO ME ". Both in 2f. Other than that ,,, no difference. Isom
  3. Hey Jack ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, you're really bored aren't cha' ? What's next ? Isom
  4. Andy, all good advice above. Use real B/P, no air space between bullet and powder, Ballistol, bore butter and b/p lubed bullets are your friend. BUT ,,, here's the real story for your wife. Honey ,,,,, if you've been shooting smokeless powder in your guns ,,,, and try to shoot b/p in them, no matter how much you try and clean them, they'll get messed up, and I'll have to take them to a gunsmith to get them fixed. Ya see b/p gets in the metal and there's a special machine used to draw it out, and it cost a little bit. Sooooooooo, " I NEED TO BUY NEW GUNS" ,,,,, Now that's your story ,,,, stick with it. Feel free to deviate. Q: Did it work for me ? A: Didn't have to ,,, no wife ,,, kids were grown. Just tryin' to help out a fellow shooter. YMMV, Isom
  5. Got one late 90's early 2000's. I've got one of those, a Bisley and a Thunderer, all in 44-40. I call them my "anniversary' guns". I only drag them out once maybe twice a year. They're good shooters, but awkward ,,,, "to me". Just used to shooting plow handles. They just take getting used to. YMMV, Isom
  6. I guess I'm way, way behind the power curve, I didn't know Marlin stopped regular production of the mod 39's , and was only building them on a custom basis. Oh well, learn something new everyday. Isom
  7. Great video. Pretty much how I do mine with a couple of exceptions. I've cut a couple of plastic powder bottle 3-4 ins. from the bottom and use them as a powder and shot container. Dipping from them is a lot easier, for me. I've also used a couple of the "old' brass shells. The ones that used to use berdan primers. Before they changed them over to LP primers. I've cut them down to the amount of powder and shot needed , soldered a handle on them. Now I've got ready made dippers. I've tried wood glue, waterglass and duco cement, all broke seals. I found those cheap hot glue guns from Wally World did the trick. Haven't broken a seal yet. I reload 10 and 12 ga. I use the MEC Jr. to deprime, prime and seat wads. I've got over 200 cases an when I get down to about 50 shells or so I start reloading. I've got 3 of the 50 hole reloading blocks. It's like a production sometimes. I do like you ,,, pop the primers and wet clean. Well ,,,, have fun, YMMV ! Oh, side note. Watching the video, about 31/2 mins. in , your dog barked ,, scared the heck out of me ,,, I must have jumped about a foot in my chair.
  8. +1 to all of the above. They also have plastic racks that hold pistols in a muzzle up position, depending on how close you place your top shelf to the top of the safe. Also racks that hold the guns muzzle forward. Usually in 6-8 each. I have 2, muzzles up on the left and right side in one safe and muzzles forward along the back wall in another.
  9. Welcome back DB. 1. If the seal on the powder hasn't been broken or never opened and it flows freely, it should be ok. Load a few and see how it performs. If it is clumpy and smells like ammonia or off, (subjective),, I'd be suspect. 2. The Lyman #49 should be ok to use. I'd put the other ones in your library for reference. Lyman has had the #50 out for a few years. 3."MY OPINION", the Lyman and Lee manuals are the better ones. If you buy a bullet manufacturers manual they'll only have their bullets and everyone else's powder. If you buy a powder manufacturer's manual it'll have only their powder and everyone else's bullets. Lee and Lyman has just about everyone's bullets and powder. .I prefer the Lyman, it's a big book "big print", and I can read it without my glasses. I have both. 4. Powder and bullet manufacturers have their own manuals, some are free, some are online. There you go, have fun and be safe. YMMV,
  10. You guys are funny ,,,,,,,,, (with a mouth full of popcorn) Isom
  11. +1 Imis,, I think we were on the same possee,,,,,,,,, Howdy back atcha' Isom
  12. I order most of mine from Whyte's. I don't like to cast,,,, but I have when I've had to . I use 20-1, I think that comes out to about bh-10, but it's pretty soft.
  13. Period Correct doesn't bother me as much as "costumes" used to. my reply was "clowns wear costumes,,, we wear outfits",,,now,, don't care either way. Havin' to much fun shootin' to worry about it. Life's to short. Lighten and have fun, Isom
  14. +1 Ace of Hearts ,,, shoot Holy Black, wet tumble with primers out,, pockets come out clean. No sweat ! Isom
  15. I'm a member of quite a few forums, and some I just go on for info and to read.Without a doubt this is one of the nicest sites I've been on, with the nicest people,,,,,,,,,, even with our differences about whatever the issue is. Cowboys seem to know how to agree to disagree.Some of the forums are just unbelievable, sometimes they're like a barroom brawl. Cowboys are the best !! : Just sayin" Be proud Cowboys, I am. Isom
