  1. All things being equal a cast bullet should be .002 bigger than the bore. Have a way over bored rossi 92 44 mag made in 1993-4 that has a .434-.435 inch bore depending on how one measures the slug. It key holed at 25 yards. Switched to softer Desparado Bullets from cowboybullets.com 240 grain .430 diameter the rifle now shoots round holes at 100 yards and a 2.5-3 inch group from a 20 inch carbine iron sights and over 65 yo eyes.
  2. thought you might want to know, who ever installed the barrel needed to put it at least one threat tighter has something like .030 too much head space, a buddy is going to fix it.

      Thanks - He is quite skilled pretty sure it will all work out.

  3. Thanks Scarlett I have never met him in person either at least now I know what he looks like
  4. Possibly but they can give and extremely accurate report of yesterdays weather tomorrow
  5. good to hear you can run them, anyone figure out how to keep BIGFOOT from stepping on them or is that just the cost of doing business?
  6. if not let me know generally bring one for color guard
  7. Make sure you have a krag, check out the AZ rangers Morenci Stike photo.
  8. Some decent powders for .38 special are bullseye, red dot, A2, Nitro 100 on the slower side HP38, unique or universal. I use the Bullseye, Red Dot, A2 and Nitro 100 range of powders and get 2000 or so rounds out of a lb. not necessarily container as many now have 12 or 14 oz vs a true pound
  9. Really? How sad would be damn be fun to get into a squirrel cage and run to lift up a 2000 lb ore car and use shotgun to bust clay pigeons falling out.
  10. Pretty sure if a true clone of the SAA as far as frame size goes there would be no way to fit a cylinder beefy enough to withstand 44 mag pressures. Pretty much the reason ruger super blackhawks and OMVs are so big.
  11. Do not carry any, do not shoot black powder. If I did would carry stuff to clean pistols, rifles and shotgun chambers prolly windex with vinegar and balistol or moose milk. If at out of town match keep cleaning stuff in the truck or 5th wheel if I am dragging it.
  12. Rumor has it there are still slots available, get those applications in.
  13. I shoot 44 mag 7.5 inch OMVs getting to be to heavy to shoot 1 handed with trashed shoulders so now shoot two handed
  14. Interesting, I notice your MEC has a 3 hole base, mine all have 4. How old is your MEC? Trying to figure out if it is super old or super new and the change to 4 hole came long ago or the 3 hole is a new thing.
