  1. That's right, I forgot about Shotgun Gibbs and his 10 gauge Greener... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cXSl3eFi648
  2. Yup. 12 gauge. Back when I started shooting and was shooting actively, that is the criteria I used for my decision. Never had a problem and never looked back. Added: I forgot, cooler guns to choose from also!
  3. Yup, me too. When I started, I reloaded to play, not to save money.
  4. I hoped for an original Winchester part and ended up buying a "lightly used" one from Old Arms of Idaho https://oldarmsofidaho.com. I just kept searching for one until I found an original available that wasn't all worn out. It took about was about to purchase one from the The Smith Shop http://thesmithshop.com in Rhode Island when the one I purchased came available. I missed one on ebay, and it took me almost a year to find what I was looking for, so if you see an original in good condition that is reasonably priced, buy it when you see it-it may not be there when you get back...
  5. Time to downsize. After 35+ years of reloading, it is time to get rid of some stuff. Let me know what you are interested in and I will get you a shipping costs. I typically use USPS Priority Mail Flat Rate, so how much you would like and how much I can get in a box will determine the shipping rate. Here's the brass that is left and not spoken for. I can't seem to figure out how to delete the columns and rows, just the text! Quantity Caliber X Fired Brand Type (B or N) Pricing T
  6. I've never used a Lee Load-All so I can' t speak about it, but I did have a MEC Junior and I liked it quite well-as I remember it was well made and didn't give me any trouble at all. I no longer have it, but in going through stuff today, I still have a few hundred rounds that I loaded in the off time using the MEC.
  7. Saw a NEW Winchester 1873 Deluxe Sporting Lever-Action Rifle 44-40 with gorgeous figured wood for $1725 out the door, half octagon, half round barrel, case colors, shotgun butt plate. Is it worth that much, or should I keep looking? What experiences have folks had with the Miroku Winchesters? Let the opinions begin! :-) Stock photo...
  8. I used those orange hat cleaning sponges back in the old days. Bought them at Renton Western Wear, but I have been away from Seattle for a long time now, and I see they shut down in 2013. Search for “orange hat cleaning sponges” in your favorite search engine.
  9. When I was actively shooting BP and loading my own shotshells, I used 209 primers with BP and they worked fine. No issues at all. As I remember I used a couple different brands, Winchester and CCI. (Edit, I just reread the original post and saw that the question was about Magnum primers-I used standard primers.)
  10. My guess is that the OP wants 4 clicks rather that the new 3 click Uberti safety firing pin gadget that the new revolvers come with. I am not a gunsmith, nor do I play one on television, but my guess would be that replacing the hammer has changed the geometry of the hand, bolt, trigger & now the timing is off. My internet guess would be that the clicks with the new hammer and cylinder installed are 1 click-“safety” notch, 2 click-half cock, 3 click-bolt drop, 4 click-cylinder lock, 5 click-force the hammer back far enough to engage the full cock sear. Just a guess t
  11. Don’t know if this will help, as the number stamp appears to be incomplete and I am late to the meeting. As far a I can remember, these were purchased sometime in the mid 1990’s. I normally reload but could not find brass at the time.
