  1. As for reload (1) on the clock: I carry nickel plated brass on my belt. Shoot five then eject one > insert nickel load and spin so on cocking it is the active shell. Don't miss!
  2. Somewhere between part #4 and #10. https://www.gunpartscorp.com/gun-manufacturer/colt/black-pow-revolvers/1860-army
  3. Some research suggests you can make similar product by mixing 91% alcohol 50/50 with liquid lanolin. As an alternative use Red Heet, gas line anti-freeze. Use a chemical resistant spray bottle (Farm Supply Store). Shake well before use. https://www.walmart.com/ip/LANOLIN-OIL-USP-GRADE-PHARMACEUTICAL-SKIN-HAIR-LIPS-MOISTURIZING-100-PURE-4-OZ/663275231?athcpid=663275231&athpgid=athenaItemPage&athcgid=null&athznid=PWVUB&athieid=v0&athstid=CS004&athguid=bd53bb2e-007-17a50e89ba257e&athancid=null&athena=true
  4. Quote from Shot Show: Also new is the Marlin 1895-410 lever-action shotgun(link is external): a .410-bore in a tried and true big-bore lever-action design. The Marlin Model 1895-410, with a fast-handling lever-action that packsquite a punch and offers fast follow-up capabilities against quick-moving small game like squirrel and rabbit. Available in the user's choice of fixed open choke and flush choke tubes including improved, light modified and full, the Marlin Model 1895-410 features a 22"/55cm barrel, an American black walnut straight gun stock and a polished blue finish on
  5. Out of stock, like everything else, but maybe a good replacement when available. https://www.gmriflebarrel.com/wl86-45-45-70-cal-29-tapered-octagon-blank/
  6. If you value your time at even cents per hour, it is cheaper to buy cast bullets from a local supplier. Freight may be a factor but Blue Bullets pays freight on large orders (3,000 or so, but it goes by what ships in one box. One problem now is that most venders are selling 9 mm and 45 acp as fast as they can cast and ship. If you try wheel weights you should use a lead pot and single burner propane camp stove to separate the junk from the alloy. I am not saying don't cast but when I was shooting an event every week there was no way I could keep up. Cast over the winter.
  7. Works well for non-pistol caliber rifle. If you size it take some effort, Lyman and RCBS. Still a lot of effort but push through sizers, Redding, works better.
  8. Check here http://lapidarysupplies.com/catalog.php Pages 4 thru 10 should have every thing you need.
  9. Nickel plated cracks long before plain brass. I only use plated rounds for my belt carried rounds. If cracking at the case mouth try annealing. I just use a propane touch at night in dim light and when the mouth changes color, drop in water. It could be you are over crimping the loads more than required, thereby causing the cases to work harden faster. If using the seating die to crimp try using a Lee or Redding crimp die.
  10. Hobby Lobby Black Testors model paint then gold leaf ink pin on the very rear.
  11. Could this be an answer? 11.15 X 55R LK EXPRESS The 11.15 X 55R LK EXPRESS was never officially listed in any catalogue. There are however numerous specimens in existence with varying case lengths. All cartridges were manufactured between 1890 and 1910 and have H Utendoerffer headstamps. RWS purchased the company. Full Company Name: Heinrich Utendoerffer Location: Nurnberg, Germany Additional Information: Heinrich Utendoerffer began production in 1855. In 1889 he sold his business to Rheinisch-Westfälischen Sprengstoff-Fabriken A.-G.
  12. While it has been awhile, from DCM shoots the guys that were doing good were using Kowa, Leica, or Swarovski. If you look at these remember that for some, the scope price does not includes the eyepiece which is sold separately. And yes a friend claims the Konus, as mentioned above, is good for the price! Again unless something changed, the Konus is kind of weighted forward which should not be a problem but something to keep in mind. I'd only worry about setting it up on a cheap, short tripod on a concrete table.
  13. I'd send a photo to this guy as he makes a market for old scopes. E-mail me ace@runestone.net
  14. This may be of interest to those who worked around jet aircraft. I sent it to Navy friends and they all claimed that it explains a lot of their problems. http://www.research.va.gov/currents/spring2014/spring2014-11.cfm VA answer is not enough research. I believe an air force officer got tired of sending personnel to have their hearing checked and when results showed OK, he thought something else had to be going on.
  15. Here is a link to a cost of reloading calculator. Follow the examples and you should be able to figure a break even point. Buy bullets local if you can as casting is time consuming. http://www.handloads.com/calc/loadingCosts.asp
