  1. What Cliff said, it takes more power to push a light bullet. Try some factory rounds to see if it happens there. Years ago at an ER shooting school he had us shooting paper to find out where we actually hitting, said most guns have one cylinder that is just a little off, find it, mark it so you never load it. Good Luck Never mind I type to slow, glad you got figured out
  2. Howdy Miss Allie, lets say Hoss has that hat for sale (1st I'll Take It) for $6.00. I call him on the phone and tell him "I don't want that ugly hat band on that hat" I'll give you $5 bucks and you keep the hat band". Hoss says "well, you give me $5 bucks and then buy me an RC Cola next time I see you". "ok" "ok". Now, I still have go to classifieds and post an "I'll Take It" so Hoss can mark it SOLD. If while we were haggling on the phone (or PM) and someone posted an I'll Take It first, then that's the end. They get the hat and the ugly band. By the way, we now have our neighbors cat First one I ever liked
  3. Yep, we use if you can touch the table yer there
  4. They already do it, it's called the North South Skirmish. They know how to burn some BP As Tyrel says "Black Powder Matters" Good Luck http://www.n-ssa.org/ Jefro Relax-Enjoy
  5. Yep, prayers up for our pards out there. I sent Possum a message, haven't heard back, course no telling when the power will return. After hurricanes Berth and Fran we didn't have running water till Thanksgiving week. Hope all are ok. Jefro
  6. #8 or #9 low recoil. I've been using reclaimed for about a year. If yer gettin ricochet from SG targets you've got more problems that shot size. Good Luck
  7. Local eye Doc knew exactly what I wanted. Left lens my regular script + bifocal........right eye for front sight. Added a pair of B-52 side shields. Works great, and easy to read stages. Used the same type wire frames I wear now with the darkest gray progressive tint. Good Luck
  8. Howdy BK, lotta matches between now and October...go to as many as you can. Call the MD and they can usually have enough guns and gear for you to try. Most of the time folks will be handing you all the guns you need to carry Best to try before you buy...Good Luck JefroRelax-Enjoy
  9. Just make sure there's not a steel wrench above your loading area that could fall and strike something hard enough to create a hot spark into your powder. In other words, reload-enjoy Jefro Relax-Enjoy
  10. This is a great place to shoot, and the food is good. I went there several years ago and shot the Indiana Black Powder Guild match. I sure wish I could make this one. Good Luck y'all
  11. This, 7/8oz shot , Gray wad, 14-15gr Clays. Good Luck
  12. Dang Dan, is that when I was stepping on your toes?? He dresses like Injun, as in no shirt, nor shoes...etc..etc...but he does drink alota water.
  13. Howdy Calvera, I filed the sights for SASS, it was probably 8 - 10 years later that I picked CFDA. I've had the pleasure to shoot with some CFDA top guns at both state and regional championships, I don't know of any that removed the front sight. The way you I draw the front sight is not dragging in the holster. IMHO it would be a waste of time and multi use of a good firearm. Go shoot it for a while first. Good Luck
  14. 1. Was SASS (or CAS) your first foray into an organized firearms competition? Yes a. What shooting game or games did you play prior and why start SASS? None - plinking. SASS looked like something I could without breaking my back b. Was the cost of those games more or less than your SASS cost? More c. Did you have to/ choose to delay SASS because of the costs? No If you answered YES a. What brought you to SASS as opposed to any other shooting sport? Saw it on TV while recovering from major back surgery b. What hobby/ sport/ game did you participate in prior? Offshore/Inshore fishing c. Were the costs of the above more or less than SASS entry? More d. Did you have to/ choose to delay SASS because of the costs? No
  15. I have a pair of GW II that I use for both. The front sight has been filled about 3/16" for my .45 Special 200gr Red Dot load. I don't think you are really gonna gain anything by removing the front sight. Good leather with a cant that fits you and regular practice will more than overcome anything you think you might gain by removal. Good Luck
  16. We sure are gonna miss him. Saw him for the second time a few years ago at Greenlake Park in Wilmington. Great Patriot and spokesman for us gun lovers. RIP big man.
  17. Yep, works great. I've used a small upright for years in my garage. Humid Carolina coast no problem, I have a Golden Rod stored on a shelf above it. Good Luck
  18. Hmm Nobody would shoot with only bibs, a hat, and no shirt or shoes. I'm just sayin
  19. Reload, you can get a Lee Classic Turret kit for what you'll spend in just a few matches. One kit includes dies, the other includes scales. Till then Scarlett's. Good Luck https://kempfgunshop.com/Lee-Turret-Press-Kit.html
  20. Star, one for BP and one for that other powder. Get your dies from 'lathesmith' over at castboolits.gunloads.com. Good Luck
  21. Red Wing Shoes is what I wear. Used Red Wing work boots for 25+ years, lots of choices, ankle boots too that look just like brogans. I still have a nice pair of 11" slip-ons for dress up somewhere, but I can't wear any kind of boot now, that's why I wear shoes. If you decide to look at them go to Red Wing store to be measured on their gizmo. Good Luck https://www.redwingshoes.com/
  22. I started out with Titegroup, 3.2gr in .38 105, 125, and 158 .357. Titegroup has a snappy recoil and a very loud report. I tried Clay's, good all round powder, light recoil. I switched to Red Dot for all my smokeless loads, 3.3gr for .38s works great. Good Luck
  23. Howdy OLG, I've been using it about 10+ years. It's used in shrink wrap for cars, bikes, boats....Also a lota stuff is treated with it for packaging parts, the Hornady powder drum is wrapped in what looks about like brown paper treated with it, I think it goes under the Cortex brand but it's the same stuff. Dies and shell plates come with a little 1"x1" cardboard piece in the box treated with it, no more need for camisol or heavy bearing grease on all kinds of parts. One other product that I really like for moving parts like base pins or 1911 slide is Gun Butter, not bore butter Watch Todd Jarret run 1000 rounds as fast as he can I was glad to see how well Ballistol did on this fellers tests, except the smell part he didn't like http://www.gunbutter.com/
