  1. If shaving lead, try to be more careful in getting bullet properly aligned in case or screw in expanded a bit more increasing the flare. That should eliminate shaving of lead
  2. Biggest problem with Marlins and cast bullets is the Micro groove rifling. They were designed to shoot jacketed. Having said that it is possible to get them to do a decent job with cast but...
  3. Bought a brand new shiney Taylors Cattleman with new version of retractable firing pin. Initially had so issues with failure to fire. Was going to send back to Taylors for repair. On a whim thoroughly cleaned gun, sprayed action cleaner into firing pin area. Followed up with a good deal of oil. No failure to fires since. 2 or 300 rounds thru gun. When I bought the original cattleman, Taylors only had one, an older model in desired caliber popped up on the wire for a good price bought it. It is the first iteration of retractable firing pin with slots in hammer etc. Despite having much lighter springs given it is so much easier to cock, it has performed flawlessly. From my saddle not worth $100 per gun to convert back to old hammers.
  4. Ph of straight dawn will be a lot lower than a squirt of dawn into a quart, half gallon or gallon of water. Are we chasing a problem that is not really a problem as long as brass is not left soaking for a fortnight? How much lemi shine, vinegar or citric acid is needed to raise the ph to 7? Thus neutralizing the solution.
  5. He or She who safely has the most fun is overall champ regardless of scores. Keep coming back you will eventually come just to be with your buds with added bonus of playing with your guns.
  6. If you want to shoot mixed calibers, it is much easier to keep track if you shoot significantly different calibers like .38 and 44 mag or 45 colt or even cowboy special. 44 mag or 44-40 and 45 are easy to mix up in the heat of battle. One way to keep straight is to use nickel plated brass for either the rifle or the pistol and regular brass for the other. Makes things really easy to differentiate
  7. If pistol is shooting low, shooting heavier bullets will raise poi. In barrel longer pistol recoils more before bullet exits yes is counter intuitive but is the gospel.
  8. Asking from AZ. What is all that green stuff in that shooting bay?
  9. My EMF 24 inch octo I got from nate kiowa jones back in 09 started out life with a safety he put in a non-safety bolt he had on hand. I am super happy with it.
  10. My circa 1995 rossi says Amadeo Rossi on upper tang, imported by Interarms on lower tang under lever Serial number vertical on side. No other rossi markings. My circa 2009 Has EMF on upper tang and A.Rossi on lower serial number on bottom of receiver
  11. Agree, with slight off topic caveat Brand New ARs at least the ones I have built including .458 socoms work best initially sloppy wet. There seems to be a lot of drag on new bolts, bcgs locking lugs probably due to small burrs after a few mags seem to wear in and function with normal lubrication.
