  1. I just found 2000 wolf small pistol primers in my reloading cabinet, can't remember where I got them or when. I have never used this brand so I'm not sure how I came by these, has anyone used them? How do they compare to federal primers? I have 1000 federals that I want to hold on to for big matches. Rafe
  2. I'm your shackeberry! That's just my name, you were going to send me a signed check without a dollar amount that I could fill in later! Rafe
  3. Good luck, my 66 and my 73 both will not feed Schofield rounds. Would be nice since that is what I shoot out of my Richard Masons and my opentops. Rafe
  4. I use a Kimber warrior when I shoot modern, as most have said get different mags or replace the springs in the Kimber ones. I use shooting Starr mags. Rafe
  5. Thanks Coffin! Mixing up JB weld right after this. Rafe
  6. Follow up I doesn't have threads, upon further inspection it looks more like a pin but with a head on it. I looks at the 1/2 moon safety it does not have a hole in it except where the hammer screw that holds it into the hammer is.
  7. So I pulled the hammer safety out of one of my opentops, when I got the 1/2 moon safety out a very small screw fell out! Any idea what this is or what it does? Does it have any purpose? Do I need to have it in somewhere? Rafe Follow up I doesn't have threads, upon further inspection it looks more like a pin but with a head on it.

  8. That's what happened today, had to eat 3. First time it has happened it will be the last.
  9. Dave did you fill the slot with anything? I took it out at the match but was wondering if anything would happen if I kept it out this a real stupid safety! You need to loose the screw to engage the safety. Rafe
  10. So the hammer safety screw on my opentop loosened up today causing me 3 misses, it's the screw that keeps the safety from falling down to prevent the firing pin from contacting the primer. My question, can I just take that safety off and leave it off? Will removal cause any issues with the hammer or firing pin.? Rafe
  11. I have the biggest guncart in the world, y wife had cartzilla made for me when I started out, it has great balance point btw is huge. When I travel to eot or winter range I had to take my wife's sub because it would not fit in the hotel room door. I made a cart out of a $25 baby carriage from goodwill put some atv rifle brackets and a chunk of particle board in the undercarriage. Folds up holds my rifle and shotgun with all the ammo I need for the day and a few tools. Plus it has a drink holder. Still have cartzilla but save her for when I shoot frontiersman. Rafe
  12. Only cowboys would give stuff away! Now I gotta look through my stash to see if I have stuff Rafe
  13. Horniday progressive press, couldn't get it dialed in.
  14. I blow the cylinders out with my air compressor, run a nipple pick through to ensure the flash holes are clear then load as normal if I am using a lubed wad I make sure that a cardboard wad is used between powder and lubed wad to keep from saturating the powder.
  15. Yes! Use Larson's guide or just send them to a good smith. Rafe
  16. I also paint one of my cones with red nail polish and never load that chamber.
  17. I load my cylinders at home the night before a shoot, cap guns are not considered a loaded firearm until they are capped. I cap at the loading table when it's close to my time to shoot. After shooting show cleaned nipples (cones) at the unload table, then recharge my pistols at my cart. Rafe
  18. Like all have said .348 probably 250-80 grain.
  19. Do what c.n. suggests! He is the world and national traditional champ. Rafe
  20. Could not find any cci#11 caps or Remington #10s anywhere. Bought some of the Winchester #11s. Hope they work.
  21. Try pushing the lever to the side, there should be a screw under there. Anything in the front of the receiver where the firing pins are?
  22. Yeah I was also looking for CCI#11s but dry hole when I saw these! I know magnum primers work when I load my suppository loads. But have never seen or heard of these! I bought a couple of tins but was wondering if they affected pressures, I load 30 grn. black in my pistols. If nothing else they should work for my 50 cal Hawkins. Rafe
