  1. Got around to looking at mine and sizer is marked 38 auto. The other two are marked S&as just like the original poster
  2. The riser is a good idea. There were at least two factory risers over the years. It is easy to disconnect the auto advance. Most important thing is to mount it in a baking pan. You will have powder and shot spills. I don’t think any shotshell press is recommended for real black powder. Easy enough on a 366 to take off the powder tube, put in a big bushing and just use a dipper to drop black into the shell. On a Mec I just take it out, put a dipped amount of BP in the hill and return it to the wad and shot position. One of these days I will find a 16 ga set for my 366 good luck
  3. I have a 40d is that what you ment
  4. I have been involved for several years with corporate shoots at a club that includes a few cowboy stages in the event. The cowboy part is shot with 22 revolvers, 22 rifle and shotgun. The stages have to be written like the old days so the rifle is not the last weapon used. (old timers did not always pick up cowboy loads well) Many stage writers still make sure the rifle is not fired last even though new timers usually pick up rifle shots just fine so no rifles on last stage if 22 allowed. Many of the participants, especially women who have not shot much do not like shooting the s
  5. I spent last weekend pulling the hollow point lead bullets out of my .44 Russian loads, that were perfectly legal when I loaded them in December. I must say I am not happy with the decision not having a down the road date so we could use up what we have loaded or have in stock to use.
  6. I wish I had the couple of years back I tried to get my 45 Colt Taurus to work. It would work fine in practice and mess up in every match. It proved to be a challenge I could not win and got rid of it. My Remlin 44 Mag sometimes had a problem,. but nothing like the every match problems with the Taurus. A little work on the Remlin with a few parts changes and testing to find the right ammo has made it a pretty good rifle.
  7. If I m not mistaken, Imperial were shells made by CIL, a Canadian company. I They were sold by OTASCO, aka Oklahoma Tire and Supply Company whose commercials had the slogan, "Thank-you. Here's your change." A twenty gauge will go into a 16, and fall through a 10 ga, but the real concern is putting a 20 ga shell in a 12 gauge gun. The shell will fall through the chamber and stick in the barrel causing an obstruction. a 12 ga shell would chamber on top of the stuck 20 ga and bad things would happen
  8. I have done the blue and red line chalk, but maybe did not have enough to cause any conplaints. Years ago, I also used some blue tinted toliet paper as filler. You could see in the air and little spots of it on the ground. I kidded people saying it was like running a patch through the barrel each shot, Today I would be in trouble for wasting toliet paper.
  9. It has been interesting to look more into this subject. On the internet, when you ask about the yellow color for 20 ga and plastic shells, both come up with the year 1960. About that time Frederal started the pushing yellow 20 ga and purple for 16 ga. The yellow color caught on ane eventually became more or less standard. I ran across some much later 20 ga once that were green olive drab like color. Winchester and Remington introduced plastic hulls in their familiar red and green colors. Federal kept with the purple color for 16, but other manufactures did not adopt it. No doubt there were yel
  10. Some of the local clubs are talking about allowing 22s in their regular monthly matches in a separate category this year because of the ammo and primer shortage. I find it interesting because finding 22 ammo is just as hard as anything else. I guess the thought is more people have their own stash of 22 ammo. One thought from one match director was to look at 22 for rifle and still use regular cowboy pistols. Any other clubs thinking about doing something like this year?
  11. Never had one personally, but a 73 with the short carrier might be exactly what you are looking for. Some of the suppliers make one set up for cowboy special, S&W and Russian length and makes the 73 use the shorter rounds. Might be worth checking into. I never really tried the rnfp in a S&W case, in my Marlin but it will feed a full wadcutter in a Colt case so I suspect it would work fine, Every rifle is different so hard say just what will work perfect for you. Good Luck.
  12. Vista Outdoors bought the ammo side of Remington. They own RCBS, Federal, Estate, CCI, Speer and a bunch of other shooting products companies. Getting the Remington ammo plant in Arkansas running full blast should help things.
  13. Had a Rossi 92 that would not let the 45 S&W through the loading gate. Had that opened up and it worked fine as did my Marlin. The 45acp 200 gr swc is a great bullet for Scofield in a rifle since it is a little longer than a round nose flat point
  14. #01 243, 308 et al , #32 45 Colt, #06 38 special, 357, #08-9mm et al. #16 222 et al, #30 44 special, 44 magnum If they are older ones bought for a Projector, they will not work as is on the newer Lock-N-Load. Hornady was offering to do the necessary machine work so they will work on the newer press for $10 each. At the price of new Lock-N-Load shellplates I chose to have all mine upgraded and saved a lot of money not buying new ones. Maybe someone with a Lock-N-Load will double check with Hornady and offer you a deal you both would be happy with. There might be someone who is happy with th
  15. You might want to consider finding another 45 Colt or a 44 mag shellplate and a then a little careful use of a Dremel tool. Some manufactures make their shellplates so loose they fit .45 colt, 44 Mag and 45 Scofield. Dillon plates allow 45 Colt and S&W to work Some companies show 38 Special and 38 S&W with the same holder as do some with 9mm and 38 Super. Even all Hornady shellplates are not the same. I have one 38 Special plate that I can put the slightly bigger S&W round in. I hope you find a number 41 plate
  16. A .25 acp case is easy to wrap around a piece of wire for a handle if it is in the range you want. I think it might have been what I used many years ago to make a bp load for 32 S&W. Cannot say for sure
  17. The 742 is the higher grade BDL model with a different stock and forearm than the regular 742
  18. Who would have thought that the most common caliber you can find factory ammo that could be used for SASS is 32 S&W long. Who would have thought 9mm Luger going selling for $60 a box and hard to find . Who would have thought that you wished you had something to shoot .30 Luger. Who would have thought you could now shoot .30 Carbine cheaper than .223. Who would have thought that you could find places sold out of .45 GAP. Who would have thought .40 S&W, 357 Sig and .38 Super would be hard to find. I will be hosed for this, because the 10-10-4 or 6 is the standard round co
  19. Might I suggest you talk to a cowboy shooter who has a case trimmer. Anyone who has shot much has had 38 special and .357 mag cases crack on the ends,. I have trimmed lots of them to 38 Short Colt length to make shells for a derringer. You stated Short Colt and not .38 S&W which are different. . Easy to do especially if you have drill motor attachment for a case trimmer.
  20. We tried a few W3G matches at Tater Hill a few years ago and even had the bonus targets made for it. We hoped it would draw more shooters to our small program and maybe give us a little something different.. All that came were mostly are small group of regulars, The serious SASS shooters complained about it messing up their timing. I thought it was fun. We had several Wild Bunch matches before WB became official, but they did not catch on either. The shooters were so concerned about brass recovery it took forever to shoot a match. We switched to doing a .22 version of WB match and
