  1. 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
  2. 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/
  3. 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 http://www.bull-frog.com/products/ http://www.bull-frog.com/publications/articles.php
  4. Thank you SASS for the new menu bar at the top!! Now we can go straight to Home and many other features
  5. Wow!! Great stuff there Duc ..........With all them categories I wonder what the trophy budget was Thanks fer sharing......Good Luck JefroRelax-Enjoy
  6. That's the way Wyatt likes it Wyatt!! I thought you gave up them fancy cigars
  7. 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! Jefro 03/11/2017 Saturday: Signatures were restored this morning (last night?).
  8. How did Trump find his way in here??
  9. 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 Good Luck Jefro Relax-Enjoy
  10. 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 Jefro Relax-Enjoy
  11. Yep it's little early so I'll start with eggs and grits....switch over to popcorn on page 3 tonight J R-E
  12. 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.

  13. I don't either, we've been shooting split pistols since we signed up for SASS many moons ago. If you want shooters to have an option usually not permited in their category say it in stage instructions. There are Stage Conventions, rules and definitions for all to read. No need to remind GF or any other category what their limitations are. When in doubt ask when the stage is read. Other than that "STAND BY......BEEP" Good Luck Jefro Relax-Enjoy
  14. Yep, if you want to allow non-GF to be able to stage the first pistol on prop then it needs to say this in stage instructions. When I write stages I always put notes at the bottom that say sumpin like; Sweeps may start on either end, sweeps may go in either direction. Stage Conventions apply. I see no gray area, GF may choose different ways to shoot this stage. I think everything here is covered by Stage Conventions, rules and definitions. Stage Conventions RO I p13 7. Revolvers are returned to leather after the shooting string. 8. Revolvers are drawn and used in accordance with the shooter’s category. RO I p15 6. Revolvers are returned to leather (re-holstered) with hammer down on a spent case or empty chamber at the conclusion of the shooting string, unless the stage description specifically directs otherwise; e.g., “move to next position and set gun on table or prop.” A shooting string is defined as shots from one type of firearm prior to the next type of firearm engaged. (Gunfighters may choose to shoot five rounds, safely stage their loaded revolvers, hammer down on a spent cartridge, shoot another firearm, retrieve the revolvers, and finish the “shooting string” before re-holstering.) Definitions p31 Shooting string – shots from one type of firearm prior to use of the next type of firearm engaged. Or you could use two shooting postions; 1st five pistol rounds table 1....move to table 2. SG, Rifle, SG, Pistol. Good Luck Jefro
  15. If the drum capacity is like my pistol caliber Hornady or others I've seen the hole is way too small to hold enough BP even for 38s. The drum I use for BP has a hole near bout as big as yer thumb. I'd stick to double disks or get a drum feed made for BP. Good Luck Jefro Relax-Enjoy
  16. Dang I hate to hear that. I know he had people here in Onslow Co. NC, and we would often PM each other about having lunch at the River View Cafe. As luck would have it when he was here we were gone....hope to see ya down the road pard. Prayers up to family and friends.
  17. Dang Larsen that's sweeet No way I could make one don't have the tools, when you decide do em for profit let me know
  18. I run all my stuff around a 10. For 38sp and Cowboy 45sp it's 3f with real BP. For .45 Colt and 44/40 I use 2f. Good Luck Jefro Relax-Enjoy
  19. Keep the shotgun long guns on yer shoulder when reloading.......especially the 97, and quit twisting it around to see the port. Drop in the round, slam-bang-rack next round Good Luck
  20. This...plus propane. A good warm pair of gloves, hand warmers if you need them and I have several different Coleman propane heaters. The two newer models I put at the loading tables, the direct heat one hangs on my gun cart. You're only gonna be without heat for a little over a minute. Good Luck Jefro Relax-Enjoy
  21. Also once you start to reload you may change to 105gr bullet for pistols and 125gr for rifle, or 125 for both to save on bullet cost.
