    Yea, but USFA Rodeos are better than Colts! (I own both)


    BTW - PWB do you ever get off the list?

  2. If you need something now Ace Hardware, 2 cans for 6$. Great spray pattern and good coverage. The tip is adjustable for back and forth or up and down. Good Luck:)

  3. Just had mine checked, it was an 8. Doc seemed to not be concerned. I melt scrap lead, pour at least four calibers, RO, and dry tumble. Just bought a big box of nitrate gloves I'll wear when cleaning guns. Keeps my hands soft;):lol:

    Grains are a measure of weight not volume. Going by weight will always be more consistent. Using volume alone can result in weight variation up to roughly 20% depending on technique. 

    When loading smokless you choose a weight to load, why would you do any different with black powder?

    Because the differant brands of BP can vary in weight for the same volume. Load it, press it, crimp it.;)

    I would make it long enough to hold 5 rounds instead of 10. Easier to manage.


    Yep, I made both of mine for five rounds 38/57 & 44/40. Much easier to handlle for me. Good Luck:)

    I don't see one of my favorites, the 'Cat Herder's Sweep'.  1,1,2,3,4,4,3,2,1,1.

    It's listed under another name.;)

    Missouri Hillbilly Sweep: Posted by Missouri Marshal (SASS#50682, VA). Ten shots on four targets, 1-1-2-3-4-4-3-2-1-1. Think of this as a Nevada Sweep, but with double taps on the end targets

    It isn't particularly new - been around a while.  You have to think in threes.

    123--- 234 ---345---3.  It isn't what anybody would call GF-friendly, or even two-handed shooter-friendly (pistol split can be a challenge under the clock).  Rifle is a lot simpler. I've run into it in matches fairly often.


    Yep, I like it, seems like an easy progression on five targets. I'm gonna keep it;)

    I never heard of it. Does sound interesting. When did it come out?

    Would like to see a MSDS on it.


    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:wacko: Watch Todd Jarret run 1000 rounds as fast as he can:o I was glad to see how well Ballistol did on this fellers tests, except the smell part he didn't like:D

  9. They left out one of the best "Bull Frog" the original salt water tested rust blocker, lubricant and cleaner. Tested in Alaska and by the Navy and Coast Guard.

Bull Frog Electronic Cleaner on all our heavy equipment and boats......git ya some yull like it;)

    Wyatt!!:o  I thought you gave up them fancy cigars:wacko::ph34r:

  11. A few things I do like about this, the hover feature, it's easy reading and posting pictures.

    Q: Can our signature lines be recouped. On another thread, Misty said she would check it out

    Q: And the Quick Navigator is gone, can we get that back?? It made it real easy to go back and forth to the other SASS sites. If you mean the little box on the right of the forums list, I miss it too. Like I wrote earlier, I asked the office staff to have someone monitor this thread. This is something I hope gets restored.

    Q: Can our notes be found. I had several notes in the profile section from when I first started. A couple of them were from Driftwood Johnson and J Mark Flint with some  early BP tips. Others were rules interpretations  from PW with examples. Help, tech support!


    03/11/2017 Saturday: Signatures were restored this morning (last night?).

  12. Red Dot is more temp sensitive than most.


    Huh?? :huh: Never heard or seen that before, and I know alota folks that use Red Dot, and some that load right at min. Red Dot is a clean fast burning powder, not position or temp sensitive. They have to be loading way below min to get it to act like Rangers. I load Red Dot in all my smokeless stuff .38, .45, 44/40, 45acp, 12 ga....never a problem.....but I prefer BP :D Good Luck :)

  13. Howdy John Boy, for CFDA loading 209s I just put the box upside down on the bunch and push tray-pull carton. They are all in line upside down on the bench. I like the primer feed on my Grabber, once you have the right height drop you may need to adjust the tube in or out to hit perfect every time. To fine tune use open end wrenches on retaining clip and ease up or down depending where you need the primer to fall. Minor adjustments can be made with feed tube installed using wrench on both sides of the clip. When in doubt remove the primer feed and add a filler block, or screwdriver tip or shaft to take up the space inside the clip. Then adjust in (down) or out (up) with good fitting wrenches. Good Luck :)

  14. Shooter was not told what to do with second pistol. Now, if said shooter really needed to be told what to do with the first three guns, they're standing there with a gun in their hand not having a clue what to do with it. However, had they ever read the Stage Conventions they would know and you wouldn't have to tell them the first four times....

    Ta Daaaa!! :)

  15. Is a pistol string all rounds from both pistols or does the inclusion of other guns between the pistol create two separate pistol strings?


    It is a "possible" action and I do not see a definitive answer in the books.

    All I really want to do is get the call correct; regardless of what the call ends up being.

    Howdy Creeker, IMHO it is covered in several locations from RO I, by definiton a shooting string ends with shots from one type of firearm prior to the next type. As soon as you start shooting a different firearm the prior string is over. GF or B-W shooting GF are the only categories allowed to stage pistols on prop or table, unless otherwise specified in stage instructions. BTW, I do like your stages and have been know to use them to add some western flavor. Good Luck :)

    RO I Stage Conventions p13

    7. Revolvers are returned to leather after the shooting string.

    RO I p15

    A shooting string is defined as shots from one type of firearm prior to the next type of firearm engaged.

    RO I Definitions p31

    Shooting string – shots from one type of firearm prior to use of the next type of firearm engaged.


    Penalty- Not returning revolvers to leather unless otherwise specified.
