  1. Actually the guy who drove the #42 owned the number #43. He was the father of Richard, and his name was Lee. Won the first Daytona 500 I think.
  2. Here are three pictures of a stand I made. It is adjustable for cylinder size and caliber.
  3. I have been shooting CCI #11 Magnum caps for many years. First in long range rifles and later in cap guns for SASS. Magnums are a bit hotter allowing for better ignition when it counts. I usually buy a box of 1000 which I used to shoot in a year but have not been out as much this year. My cap guns are fitted with Tresso nipples which are a perfect fit with the #11 caps. I have three different styles of Ted Cash cappers and the #11's work just fine in them. Everybody has their favorite but this combination works well for me. Lucky
  4. If this works you can see another use for the tool. After you have burned the ends off your shotgun shells shooting black powder you can use the tool to trim off about a quarter inch and use them again by closing with a roll crimp. There are a couple roll crimped shells setting on the bed of the lathe. Lucky
  5. I really do not know the history of the Model 44 and 44-1/2. I do know mine is a Model 44 with Schutzen style wood and hooked butt plate. The barrel also has an "X" on the top flat. Some will know what means. The 25-21 is an obsolete cartridge but Bertram made the brass for awhile. They were very thin walled and easy to mess up when reloading. I found about 75 pieces of original UMC brass on ebay a few years ago and am now able to shoot the rifle occasionally.
  6. What about the 25-21 Stevens? You might need to look a bit for this one. Mine is good, just barely, for 200 yards. Lucky
  7. I do not agree with the first part of this statement. There are several clubs in the Southeast that could, and have handled large Regional shoots. I do agree with the second part. The clubs in the Southeast that successfully handled these shoots in the past just kind of burned out and stopped holding them. Not much new blood coming in and the old guys just kind of give out.

  8. Here is an idea nobody has mentioned. Have your local cowboy club get a table at the next gun show. Man it with cowboys, cowgirls, and buckaroos wearing their western best. Exhibit all of the firearms that are used in the game. Play videos of "regular folks" shooting stages. Our local rod & gun club did this a few years ago to promote our trap and skeet program. We got some new members. Lucky
  9. I bought a pair of the 5-1/2" brass framed models the last time they were on sale at Cabelas. I already had a pair of the steel framed model with 7-1/2" barrels but I wanted to see how the brass frames would hold up and I wanted the shorter barrels. The only modifications I have made to date is to install Tresso nipples and a plug on the hammer faces to make them smooth. I have used them in two matches so far and have had NO problems at all either mechanically, with ignition or cap jams. I plan to make them my main match pistols and see how they hold up. Lucky
  10. Judge, the best way is to buy a mould and make your own. That way you can have exactly what you want. I would recommend bullets over round balls. Get bullets with a big lube groove and use a good black powder lube. You will be able to shoot all day without worrying about fouling. Hope you are doing good. Lucky
  11. Here is a loader I built a few years ago. It and the loading box really speeds up the loading process and allows us time to help out with other posse chores.
  12. The pouches on my shotgun belts hold two rounds with a small space between pouches. When I don't do a fumble fingers it works great. Lucky
