  1. I have run 32 S&W longs in the Marlin rifle - shorts don't feed well though.
  2. I've used the snap line chalk, glitter and feathers. Feathers seemed to be the most visible. I don't know about others but to me as a shooter I wasn't seeing the stuff, watching others shoot it was visible from behind the shooter. Glitter never seemed to show up others told me to try the kind drywall hangers use - never did find the stuff.
  3. Not sure of your numbering system, but I'll take the one on the right in the top photo. It appears to be the top one in the bottom photo. PM me with an address.
  4. The first Uberti 73 I bought was a 32-20. Newbie, didn't know much other than the winners were shooting 73s and the price for it was about half what a new 73 was. I don't shoot it much especially at "lost brass" matches. Like the guy above I covet the spent brass. Have a pair of Model P Jrs. with 32-20 and 32 H&R cylinders. Have not used the 32-20 cylinders in them yet. Got a pair of original colts in 32-20, guy sent some rounds along with the pistols, they're too long for the rifle but do work in the pistols. I shoot the 32-20s (and an original 73 and a pair of colts in 38-40 also
  5. What's the reason you want to buy one? Is it that the price is attractive, it's pretty, you just want one? I'd ask if you have ever used one? If not - that might be what you want to do before you plunk down your money.
  6. Picked up stock this morning.  Excellent packing job although the post office tried to beat it up.

    Thank you

    Probably was there last Saturday - but this was first I could get there when someone was there.

      Great. Got your check too. 

      Enjoy. Shoot straight 

      Happy Trails


  7. Check with people in your local area, you can probably find some one to do it for you for the price of the components (and maybe some rolls, a dinner, jug of hooch, you get the picture). I'd suggest a box or two before you go whole hog with ten boxes.
  8. I think it was Davidsons - made a special run with 32 20 cylinder and a 32 H&R Mag cylinder, "Buckeye Special"?
  9. The mice are well trained and well rewarded - they drop the bullet after they unload but they don't have the strength to crimp the case. Currently cross breeding some with stronger sphincters - but they will be several years out until they are mature enough. Thanks for all the input, snagged an older Lee die set for only slightly more than just a seat/crimp die would have been.
  10. My regular 32 H&R mag and 32 S&W long dies won't seat and crimp the short cases. Anybody loading shorts and if so what seat and crimp die are you using? TIA
  11. Interesting question. My category has some mighty good shooters in it and the only way I place near the top is when I'm at a local match and they're off at a bigger match somewhere. Did manage to come in ahead of one guy once who had a passel of gun trouble. Went up to him afterwards and told him I always wanted to beat him - but not that way. Same situation with another fellow who I aspired to best who has some health issues and has slowed down considerably. Several years ago I bought a buckle and had these words inscribed on it - "I bought this buckle". That said - I've gotte
  12. General practice is separate boxes for rifle and pistol, only because I load the shinier brass for rifle in hopes it will make it easier for the brass pickers to find. Hasn't worked all that well so far, but it proves I'm thinking about them. Shoot splits in the pistols and mark them with a Sharpie stripe down the side for double precaution. If I'm playing with different primers or loads, will put them in a different box, color code the head and put a slip of paper in there so I know what's what. Works well except on windy days when the paper blows away and I forget what color is what.
