  1. We started using the AMG timers a couple of months ago. We read out the raw time to verify what the tablet downloads but I’m now aware of any errors as long as the scorekeeper has not “jumped the gun” pecking the download command.
  2. I have a .41 Magnum revolver and have always wanted a Marlin in that chambering. They are really dear, though. I'm hoping Ruger will consider reintroducing it, since they make revolvers in that chambering.
  3. Try cooking sous vide (or as the British say, in a water bath). Almost impossible to overcook it and because of the long cook time you can serve it pink. I started using a large pot of water on the stovetop monitoring the water temperature with a cooking thermometer. A Ziplock bag will suffice. If you like the results you can order a circulator which makes sous vide simple. Some modern pressure cookers have a sous vide feature as well.
  4. I’m just puzzling over the acronym “SSAA” for “Single Action Shooting Australia”! Kidding aside, I admire the cowboy shooters in jurisdictions that place so many restrictions on the ownership and use of firearms used in our game. You have a high level of commitment.
  5. The website says out of stock but all ammo sales (according to a notice on the site) are in-store only so who knows? My new shooter picked up the limit of five boxes the other day.
  6. I don't have anything to trade but I have to say that I love your alias.
  7. A prospective new shooter let me know about Grizzly Cartridge .38 Special cowboy ammo that he found on sale for $20 per box of 50 (limit 5) at a local Sportsmans Warehouse store. I was not familiar with this brand. A Google search showed some negative reviews, mostly involving other types of ammo. Anyone on the Wire have any feedback?
  8. Reloading is a must if you shoot Frontier Cartridge. Opinions differ if you shoot smokeless. Prior to the current component shortage I figured I could load a low recoil AA “clone” for a lower cost than budget 12 gauge shells IF I could get shot at less than the $45-50 retail cost of new lead shot. I have purchased reclaimed and homemade shot when I could find it at a decent price. It is not perfectly round but it’s fine for the distances we shoot. I generally use the same powder (Clays, originally and now Red Dot) that I use for .38 Special. Hulls I have scrounged and sometimes purchased. I generally sort my hulls into three categories: once fired (for big matches), used good condition (monthly matches) and “eww-but the ‘97 or Model 12 will eat ‘em”. Claybuster wads are less expensive than major brands. They’ve been a little scarce but I’ve found them.
  9. Shooters are accustomed to carrying the long guns vertically to and from carts and tables. It’s a hard habit to break, apparently, when moving with a rifle or shotgun during the course of fire. Still, that’s the rule. I agree with Scarlett on gun handling. I was swept with an open shotgun at my home club’s match. I don’t enjoy assessing any penalty but we have to be safe.
  10. I don’t believe that is correct. My Sizemaster has a pre-crimp and a final crimp. Same as the 600/Jr., I believe. I have an older model MEC Grabber that ends with a final taper crimp station.
  11. I always loaded my .38 Special ammo over the top in my Uberti ‘’73. I started shooting a .44-40 Miroku ‘73 in December. Had my first “on the clock” reload this month. I loaded a regular length cartridge over the top. I fumbled it a little but it worked.
  12. Have them Cerakoted in a dark finish of your choice. It’s legal.
  13. Glad to hear that they went to a new shooter. A new family, even better!
  14. CK, a brand new shooter in my club has one .357 Stampede and is looking for a mate. Feel free to send me a PM and let me know whether you would break up the pair and on pricing for a single revolver or both.
