SASS Wire Vet (1/1)



  1. Post Bruen we are seeing a lot of laws being passed as both sides try figure out what is and is not constitutional under Bruen
  2. The average American seems not to know that many countries were involved in WWII on the Allied side.
  3. Good luck if it happens and I hope it doesn't. I'm not sure why, but I'm not optimistic in such a lawsuit succeeding.
  4. They're trying to prevent themselves from being sued, so they put up the no guns signs to CYA
  5. In the present with smokeless powder .45 Colt In the past with black powder .44-40
  6. You left it on the top of your vehicle at the last SASS match you went to. Or it went to the same place as the missing remote and the other sock that made up the pair
  7. Also have an experienced 97 user run a half dozen shells through it to see if it malfunctions for them as well
  8. Is the hammer going forward on the shell that doesn't fire? If yes, check the firing pin. If no, the gun is not locking up completely
  9. Just an FYI, Heluva Ruckus tends to sells out pretty quick. They usually post the application on their website in April Do the research, but I don't think NY is any worse, law wise, than MD or NJ
  10. Try a refrigerator, even if it isn't plugged in, it should work better than an ice chest. Primers in the freezer section, powder in the other part. If you can plug it in that's even better. You'll have to play with the settings and determine the best temperature, but since you probably won't need to keep either section as cold as possible, that should reduce the amount of electricity the refrigerator uses. And you can sell it that the wife gets a new refrigerator and you can use the old one for powder & primers.
  11. Thank you to all the people at Circle K who work so hard to put on a great match EVERY single year. I've shot every Heluva Ruckus since 2000 and they never fail to put on a great match. Yet again, I was the only sane person on my posse!
  12. I use Hogdon 2F 777 in .44 cap & ball and , .38 Special and .44 Magnum. Per Hogdon's Data: https://hodgdon.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/muzzleloading_manual_2008.pdf a 30 gr charge of 2F 777 and a 200 gr bullet is very near the 1000 fps SASS limit. 3F 777 with the same charge and bullet will almost certainly be above the 1000 fps max and may make some match directors, who don't have AR500 steel targets, unhappy.
  13. Talked to a falconer a couple of years ago and she said that a bald eagle can apply in excess of 1000 pounds of pressure with it's talons. To put that into context a pit bull terrier bites with 225 pounds of pressure, a German Shepherd bite is 235 pounds of pressure and a wolf bite is in the neighborhood of 700 pounds of pressure.
