  1. To dry brass I have used the oven set at 250, bake timer set for one hour. Had a live round in a batch of brass I forgot to pull when done. The wife went to preheat the oven to 450 for a pizza. The live round cooked off about the time the oven was up to temp. It was a bit exciting for just a little bit. The case split and both the bullet and split case stayed in the tinfoil pan I had the brass in. I think it was good that the round was a smokeless round rather than BP or Sub.
  2. I wonder if the ball made it out of the barrel or if it stayed in the barrel.
  3. 59 and 39 grips don't interchange.
  4. I had a Frankford tube filler. With all the fiddling around I was faster filling tubes by hand. A few years ago I wanted to start shooting gunfighter. Since my left hand was my week and dumb hand I started making myself use the left hand to pick primers. I can now pick primers left handed as well as I can right handed. Even with all the left hand primer picking I still don't shoot gunfighter very well.
  5. I agree, thanks for putting on another fine cowboy shoot. This was my third HOW and plan to do it again.
  6. I shoot a 20ga Stoger. In 2002 I started CAS with a 20ga Rossi hammer gun, I already had the Rossi. The Hammer Less Double trigger Stoger was major improvement. From experience with outfitting my wife I gained a very poor opinion of single trigger Stogers. I load light 20ga loads. Now what would I recommend for a new shooter, a 12ga or a 20ga. Hands down it would be a 12ga. I have 3 reasons for the 12 over a 20. First is low recoil 12ga rounds are easier to find in stores. Second I think that between the bigger chamber holes and the larger diameter shells loading a 12ga is slightly easier. Third and my favorite reason. Most other cowboys shoot 12 gages so bumming shells at a shoot is less of a problem.
  7. What is the schedule of events for the state shoot?

  8. I see you found the land run app. See you there

  9. Categories are insignificant if you can't shoot them gunfighter.
  10. The Arkansas Lead Slingers have a nice private range that is tucked away in a valley in Northwest Arkansas. Not too far from the Rogers / Bentonville area. It is a SASS club that works at following SASS rules without forgetting the cowboy way (friendly) in doing so. Blackwater Bruce is the clubs TG, and does a fine job with that duty. I have sent you a PM with his e-mail address. PM me with questions and I will try to help. Buff Bill
  11. That's a good Christmas gift you will enjoy it.
  12. Anytime two carriers interline it is a disaster. The UPS / USPS shipping that Midway uses is the worst. I think both UPS and the USPS try to make each other look bad when they interline. Either one on their own does much better. Our local FEDEX delivery drivers can't find an address two days in a row. If they don't have to have a signature they just throw the package at the door from the street. My last Dillon shipment was almost on the porch.
  13. This Cap & ball Senior Gunfighter just put this on my calendar. Kitty and I had a great time this year.
