  1. If the gun is new you could ask to have the sharp point on the lever rounded. See http://marauder.homestead.com/files/Marlin94Fix.html See cure for new guns.
  2. Just shoot it. It will wear smooth after a few hundred rounds. I use a small O'ring over the safety, that I install with circlip pliers. If hunting I cut the O'ring to use the safety. If the gun runs rough I sub out ejectors as that has been the only problem I've had when new.
  3. Just call Ruger and order one. Hurry as mail is likely to slow down. Telephone: 336-949-5200 M-F
  4. I use nickel on belt for reloads. Helps with load 1 in revolver to find the hot one. Belt storage life of nickel is also much longer.
  5. Ruger model 96 in 44 mag had a 1 in 20 twist rather than 1 in 38. Allows for longer bullets to stabilize. Shorter bullets to stabilize at less velocity. Ruger 44 mag pistols have a 1 in 20 twist.
  6. My best guess, you had a magazine detonation which causes the shells to compress. It's a 38? If the magazine tube is oversize the shells line up something like this \\\\\\\ (not in a straight line). Someone sells a reducer to keep 38s more nose to tail.

  7. Check here http://www.castpics.net/LoadData/Freebies/RM/Alliant.html Pistol loads are near the bottom. Try older manuals but the most recent that shows Green Dot I believe that for Alliant powders the common ones used are Red Dot and Unique. I have used Green Dot but for 45 Colt and 12 gauge field loads.
  8. You might try here: http://lapidarysupplies.com/catalog_pages_2019/page_05.pdf I assume vibratory type? I believe these motors have bearings and not sleeves, big difference in life expectancy. You may want to call Minnesota Lapidary. Their page claims they will work with you to find that correct solution. 106202 Replacement Motor for U-V 10 $141.10 106204 Replacement Motor for U-V 18 $246.75 106206 Replacement Motor for U-V 45 $246.75
  9. I like the Dawn (blue) idea. You also might try silicone spray on the gasket so it does not grab. Make sure both sides are coated.
  10. I use a leaders pot and propane camp stove to render wheel weights. I suggest not using your casting pot to cleanup scrap lead.
  11. My take? Buy once. Decide how many shells you'll reload per week. Don't forget to include practice rounds. Remember mid-priced machines make better shells than cheap but useable machines, They resized the brass base as part of the reloading process MEC Sizemaster would work for 50 to 100 rounds per week My cheap/poor skeet shooting friends use a MEC Grabber but they shoot 200 to 500 rounds per week. My rich/old skeet shooter friends swear by Ponsness/Warren. Since they are retired and shoot in the 1,000 shells per week range range. it still doesn't make sense as PW is a year wait and unaffordable. The Sizemaster, when lubed, should last a lifetime and makes good shells. It helps to standardize on similiar shells as setup is a time waster. I use Claybuster Wads purchased by the case. From old, 1 piece, Winchester AA hulls I get 7 to 10 reloads. This is for an over/under and after 5 reloads I doubt they would work in a pump. Don't forget to save the boxes.
  12. Depends. What bullet, what weight? For H&G molds 185 and 200 gr. lead Winchester 231.
  13. Is this what you are looking for? https://apps.apple.com/us/app/cas-scoring/id1435903652
  14. I would compare your load with 38 to 357. I would not go much below, if at all, the 357 starting load.
  15. This worked for me. https://www.midwayusa.com/product/1982324820
  16. After you relieve the stock, find a diabetic friend who uses syringes and 32 gauge, very fine, needles. Fill with Tite Bond and slowly fill the crack at various locations. Clamp and wait a few (3) days.
