  1. What a great friend and ambassador to SASS, he will be surely missed. A couple of months ago some members installed a plaque declaring the cowboy range "Dodge City Dude Territory".  Prayers up for family and friends.

  2. This is a cut & paste from CAS City a few years ago for real BP and Ballistic Products wads. Good Luck:)

    Howdy Two-Bits,  I shoot a load similar to Noz wtih the Pink wad. Again as others have said the Win WAA 12R (CB 1138-12) is good for about 60-65gr and 1 1/8oz shot. I prefer to use a little less BP and have found several wads that fit all my needs. Besides the Win Pink wad there are several short shell wads from BPI that really work well.

     Short Shell #72SSW    1 1/8oz - 54-57gr ffg with BPI short wad #72SSW..........my favorite for big matches ;)

    Helix #18    1oz - 48-50gr ffg with BPI Helix Driver #18.......another big match fav

    WAA12SSL    7/8oz - 43-45gr ffg with Win Pink wad AA12SL (CB1100-12).......my local fav ;D

    Helix #21    7/8oz - 45-47gr ffg with BPI Helix Driver #21......works good with the new two piece AA hulls

  3. Another popular method is to have shooting lens for front sight, other lens for me was normal script with bifocal. Eye doc knew just what I wanted. Now I can read stages and still see without having to swap glasses. Good Luck:)

    Okay, so how do you tell zinc from lead?

    Razor knife;). Even though I know most of the brand names w/stamp and shapes, some of the zinc ones are getting so close to look alike.

    I don’t know the charge weight for sure because I’m out of Red Dot and can’t weigh it. I was using a 27 bushing in a MEC reloader with 7/8 oz shot and it seemed lighter than Winchester Low Noise Low Recoil.



    Yep, this is a good load for Red Dot. Mec #26 = 14gr.  Mec #27 = 15gr  that and a gray wad with 7/8oz shot. I use Red Dot for all my smokeless stuff 38/357, 44/40, 45Colt, 45acp and 12ga. Good Luck:)

    I'm a 'Mayberry' type citizen and any town with more than a couple red light and a few stop signs is too big for me.


    Me too;)

    Looking at that building, maybe SASS has visions of a bonafide SASS museum someday, looks like they’d have plenty of room.


    Heck yea, I may just move there........wonder if they have a room out back I can rent?? Or maybe a cabin on the pond at Paradise Pass..........the best BP match I ever did see. B) Good Luck.:)

    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

  8. 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. Been using their products for years here on the Carolina coast. Bull Frog Rusthunter Firearm Cleaner and Bull Frog Lubricant with Rust Blocker for every day use, Emitter Shield for the safe, tackle and tool box. 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:

  10. 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?).

  11. 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 :)

  12. 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 :)
