  1. Yes, they are 215 grain 45 Colt bullets.
  2. As one English book actually said, "Never use a preposition to end a sentence with." But, who am I speaking too?
  3. Then you don't like that classic movie line: Where the white women at? I work for Mel Brooks.
  4. I thought I lived in an incorrect period - until I realized it was only a comma.
  5. Titegroup does work well, but it is a little louder than some and have a sharper recoil  It can also be used for a 12 gauge load.

    "I was looking at the Hodgon load data website and they have loads listed using Titegroup powder, This peeked my interest as I have lots of it on hand for pistol calibers I load for. the lightest load I see they have listed is for one ounce. My question is would it be okay to use this data for a Lee 7/8 oz slug.Or would anyone know of a source of load data for 7/8 oz loads.The loads listed below are starting and middle of the road so I assume I would be ok.

    Unique is a little dirtier but is also a great powder for both.


    Clays is a great option for 12 gauge and can be used for the 9mm.  But since it is a little fast for the 9mm, you will have to load near max for a reliable load.  My only concern is that if the pistol is new it sometimes wants a higher velocity load to break them in.  But i have shot a lot of Clyays in 9mm and it has worked well in nearly all my pistols.

      Thanks, Marauder!  That's all great information.  I appreciate it.



  6. A great video! Yes, that is my web page. I had a Marlin (there are several models based on the 1898, including the 19, 42, etc.) A couple good pards reviewed the information and we tested a cowboys Marlin. It passed the tests just fine. So we took it to the range and shot our mild cowboy loads. After a few shots, the metal (I think on the frame) failed and sent a sliver back into the shooters cheek. Fortunately the safety glasses deflected it so that i stuck into his cheek and bled a little but it was not as bad as it could have been. If you are familiar with old firearms, you will remember that many guns failed in WW 1. They did do metal hardening but the process was not as idiot proof enough. Just a slight change in time, etc would produce a gun with weak metal. So guns were literally blowing up. (Remember that we did not have decades of experience with smokeless powder back then.) So in about 1918, they reviewed and updated the procedures for hardening steel. So the word went out, be very careful of any gun made prior to 1918. Later in the 1930's they further improved the process even more, then again in the early 1940's. Very few people or shops have the technology available to test the metals. So... Are your eyes and face worth the risk?
  7. Marlin declared them unsafe after there were many failures. You can do some checks of the major issues. We did that on one gun but the metal failed anyway and almost put a metal sliver through the shooter's eye. They make a good wall hanger.
  8. I warned you some will try to kid ya!!!
  9. If Neatsfood oil, make sure it actually real Neatsfoot oil and not some blend of other stuff. And try it sparingly on a small spot to see it it works and if it is truly needed. I've used the same rig for well over 10 years and have not needed to do anything but wipe it down with a clean cloth once in a while.
  10. Don't let anyone kid you, Bruce. You are the only one!
  11. Generally the velocity will be lower due to the larger volume of the larger case. As the volume increases, the pressure of the load decreases. So you normally need to sightly increase the power used in the Magnum case to get the same velocity.
