  1. Turn around time for work on 1851 Colt is +2.5 years, or more. I'm still trying to find out the definition of "more".
  2. Used Bore Butter as over-ball lube in a match last year. It was handy. 'twas all I could find in my stash the night before. Posse member complaints of "are you using BenGay?", "is your back sore, or something?", "that STINKS, what are you using1?" were frequent, with much (pointless) waving of hands trying to clear BP smoke. Mint oil does not spoil; evidently useful in commercial BP lube. Just saying.
  3. I have 19 rounds of Buffalo Bore ("factory ammo") loaded rounds I'm willing to sell. Comes in original 20 round plastic box. Shipping would be UPS Ground. PM if interested.
  4. I disagree. Nothing gas changed. USA citizens in uniform, putting their lives on the line so that stupid people can say stupid things. Those uniformed people spit on, assaulted, denegrated to please a political agenda for the supposed actions of a microscopically small number of bad apples. My employer requires attendance of Black Lives Matter training. They hand out stickers such as the following. (Stuck to a work computer.) Pay for "civil disobediance training", in preparation for massive riots planned by Democrats should Trump have won the election.
  5. Some of the revolvers were sold with spare, non-original cylinders chambered in 32 ACP, and IIRC, .32 Colt. I think .32 Colt in a 7.62×38mm (or 32 WCF) chamber would cause case problems if the case head was not otherwise supported.
  6. Why do you suspect so? It's black powder. Smaller grain size, slightly more propellant per volume, adjust your load accordingly. Original 44 WCF used FFFFg equivalent powder, not that most CAS shooters want highest velocity, but FFFFg will not magically blow up your firearm any more than any other granulation.
  7. Uhm, isn't 25/36 just a marketing spin on the same cartridge, 25/35 Winchester? I've used .25 Remington dies to reload for my uncle's 94 Winchester in 25/35. The 25 Rem being a rimless 25/35. I don't have dies that I want to sell, but your options may be fairly large. I don't know, did Marlin have unusual leade or bullet diameter that **requires** a 25/36 die?
  8. Of course, Top Ramen tended to be the primary nutrition source during field training excercises, with bits and pieces of the issued food packs added for variety. (C ration canned pork patties = Spam with no flavor.)
  9. LRPs were the best! As long as you had potable water, and as compared to C rats or Mr. E's, anyway. Still have 4 or 5 packages, just for grins. Of course, the last one I opened about 15 years ago was fuzzy on the inside, and emitted a whitish-blue dust... (Long Range Patrol ration.)
  10. Sure Cycle is for waterfowl hunters with a strong focus on magazine shotgun reliability. Stainless steel magazine springs among the doo-dads available for purchase. You should find something adaptable to your needs. https://www.surecycle.com
  11. My retired duck & phesant hunting partner. Barb wire, concertina, shale slides, sheet ice, porcupines, Russian olive thickets, hidden hornet nests, hidden rabbit holes, cliffs, rattle snakes, and lightly wounded aggressive birds could not stop this dog when he was "employed". In his dotage, on pee break, he trips on a small branch while sniffing for tree squirrels in his own back yard, and blows out his cruciate ligament.
  12. How soft is that Hornady swedged bullet? Did it lead up the barrel? Did you try it with BP? Tks.
