  1. In the old days, a pistol bay was at least 25 yards long and sometimes up to 50 yards, It seems to me that SASS targets have gotten closer over the years. I . am wondering if you were going to build new bays for SASS, would 50 feet bays be long enough?
  2. Many years ago a friend had a marlin 336 in 44 Mag and it was crap.. I started with a Win 94 in 44 mag and it was crap, Both of these were real rifle length rifles that someone thought would be a good seller in 44 mag. Stay away from them. i had a Rossi 44 mag that was a trouble child and I got rid of it,. but did not have anything done to it. I have a later 45 Colt Rossi and it works well. I have a Browning 44 ,mag 92 that will shoot special and mag all day. My late model Marlin 94 took a lot of work to get it to work right, but now works well special and mags. Every once in a while I wonder if one of the new stainless Rossi 92s might make a good black powder rifle. The Henry's don't get any respect for out game. .
  3. The plastic in the old Winchester AA wads seems to have more often snap off pedals than other old wads
  4. The red wad someone recommended to you is the old AA wad or copy. it was for heavy loads even though the pedals would only go up about 1/18 ounce worth and was sometimes used with old hulls years ago that high base wads. The Winchester version was discontinued a few years ago. People often recommended them for black powder loads when people were still loading full strength amounts of powder and 1 1/8 ounce of shot. The recommendations you have received are much more current for what people are loading. If you happened to have a lot of those red wads, you could use them up by putting a filler wad to get them to the right height for the load you want. I have seen a lot of black powder shotgun shooters trying to find them so you might be able to trade them for just what you want
  5. I received an e-mail from Midway on some ammo on sale.. Nothing really cowboy oriented, but caught my eye with some prices. 5 pack 12 ga fed slugs $4.99 or a buck a pop. Heavy shot dead coyote $78.18 for 10 3 inch which their match says $7.82 per round . Got me thinking with 9mm 40 45 at some places a buck a round a buck a round for 12 ga slugs is not too bad. Flip side, I could never see me shooting a $8 a round at a coyote. Just caught my attention
  6. If I were looking to shoot a 10 ga double just for SASS and had the set up to load 12 ga, I would search the internet for the best deal for some 10-to 12 ga converters like Little Skeeter or others. Buy a half-dozen or so and use your 12 ga cowboy loads in the 10 ga. I have used the 12 to 4.10 and 20 to 28 converters and they worked just fine for light loads. A whole lot cheaper than assembling loading equipment and components. You might want to try two of them and see if it would work for you.
  7. My guess is this revolver was made at the time Colt was marking their 38 S&W guns as 38 NP or .38 New Police so that the marking 38 S&W would mean 38 S&W Special. The 38 Colt NP rounds were made for a long time and the only difference between them and .38 S&W was the 38 Colt NP had a flat point
  8. Some if the old Speer manuals show their 148 gr hbwc bullet seated out to about regular length The hollow base 358 bullet sealed well and accuracy was as good as factory Missouri bullet has a S&W bullet I never found it made much difference. never saw much accuracy difference in shooting 355 9mm and 358 38 or 357 in the appropriate ruger blackhawk cylinders either
