  1. I had a problem with one gun I purchased from them Sent it in and had it back in less than 48 hours.
  2. I will not load ammo for others, due to the liability that comes with doing so Without Insurance, and a license It is just not worth the headaches that could come with it
  3. I have cast my own bullets for many years, and have made my own alloys depending on the need. I enjoy doing it, but plan to buy my lead already mixed from a couple of places I have found on the web The one thing I will point out is by the time you buy your lead and pay for your molds and other equipment and figure your time it's cheaper to buy your bullets
  4. I have the Lee Shaver sight on my pedersoli Sharps, it works well On my 86 I added the same sight as is on my Browning 45-90 Hi-Wall
  5. I started with the Lee pots many, many years ago Have owned several lee pots, still have one and they all either dripped or just ran like a water hose Use it to pre melt the lead for my Lyman and RCBS pots Even had 2 Ballisti- Cast machines for several years. Was turning out 4000 bullets an hour 6 days a week and could not keep up with sales But for hand casting the Lyman was my go to pot over the RCBS
  6. I find the Saeco steel molds to be some of the best. We ran them and the H&G, RCBS, and Lyman molds on casting machines The Saeco molds lasted the longest and were casting good bullets lone after the others were done If you go with the Lee, the 6 cavity molds are the best for the money
  7. I have shot at many clubs using rebar stands, in fact I helped build many of the stands these clubs. Never had an issue with splatter or bounce back
  8. Lumpy, I have one of the Winchester/Jap 86's as well. I put the same tang sight on it as came with my Win./Jap. High Wall 45-90 By the way Past recoil shield works very well to cut down on recoil
  9. I have 2 Grandsons. The oldest will be 3 on the 27th. the other one will be a year old 1st. day of March The older one's middle mane is Henry and has had a Henry made 1860 for about 2 years. In fact Papa was babysitting one day and had to get into the safe. Henry stood in the open door and reached out to the Henry and said mine and he had never seen the gun before. Now my problems the other Grandson, his middle mane is Harley
  10. I found a nice Fox single trigger gun, and have used it for many years. Have been asked many times why I don't cut the 26" barrels down, but it just works so nice I'm going to leave it alone
  11. I was at my local toy store the other day and looked at a Traditions SAA at What looked like a very good price. Now I have many single action revolvers, but know nothing about this brand. Can anyone give some input on this gun
  12. I make my own leather and would do just as DJ said, use the longer barreled gun in the crossdraw holster. Any good leather worker can make a holster to fit your need
  13. I have the Lee pro 20, the RCBS pro-melt, and the Lyman 200# bottom pour and have cast 1,000s of bullets with them In my opinion the Lyman was the best, but the RCBS ran a close 2nd. The Lee is a good pot for the money unless you plan to do a lot of casting The Lee is cheap, but you will end up replacing them. A good melting pot will coast more to start, but will be cheaper in the long run
