  1. Missouri Bullet Company makes the exact bullet you need - .361, 145 gr. Hodgdon has load data. Lee dies work fine.
  2. I allow 2 boxes of shells for my wife and I per match with one in reserve for those days that the targets flinch.
  3. Hodgkin used to include a "Cowboy Loads" for many obsolete calibers in the middle of their manual. Missouri Bullet Co makes the correct 38 S&W bullet - 145 or 6 gr, .361 or 2. I would give Hodgdon a call as I am sure they still have the data.
  4. If you don't have side shields, and a fragment comes from the side, you won't even blink as it plows a furrow across your cornea. A welding supply store has clear side shields that fit on glasses with a rubber band. Been using them for 12 yrs.
  5. I use Lasercast 240 gr bullets. Their lead mine up in the mountains above Baker OR has other minerals such as silver. they make a harder lead bullet which leaves almost no lead in the barrel. No gas check required.
  6. I had both eyes done with that option years ago. I am right eyed and it looks like my Left eye is the near vision eye. Check with the ophthalmologist. I have had no problems adjusting. Clear vision is wonderful. I can see the targets better but just as slowly.
  7. Kirkpatrick Leather makes nice holsters. Long hunter used to carry them. The ones I use allow one to pull the pistol by the front of the trigger guard instead of only by the grip handle, and have a nice slight forward cant.
  8. And the new model has the last three serial numbers engraved on the cylinder.
  9. Too bad they stopped having the Long Range. That is a good range for that.
  10. Read "The Earth is Weeping" by Peter Cozzens. the best treatise I have seen on the Indian Wars. they were soldiers, civilians and fellow tribal members.
  11. If I have a high primer, I would estimate that 90 % are old winchester brass. If I disassemble the round and run it thru again, the primer is flat. Wonder why?
  12. I would wonder if some goggles might cut down on peripheral vision and be a safety hazard?
  13. I tried making some and they turned out satisfactory . The hard part is getting both the guide pin and the half circle at the top lined up.
