  1. Essentially all 1897 are marked for 2 3/4 inch shells. BUT that is using the old roll-crimp shells with a slightly shorter hull. The standard forcing cone is 1/2 (the taper beyond the chamber" so that will allow the modern 2 3/4 shells to be used. That does very slightly raise the pressure and many report they have more felt recoil. The Brits have done a lot of research into this and say that it is safe. But if it is a standard barrel thickness, you can readily have the chamber slightly lengthened as well as the throat lengthen to 1 1//2 inches to further reduce felt recoil. In some
  2. Tom's email addres is on this page: https://www.sassnet.com/mercantile/P-SASS-Match-Managment-and-Scoring-Program.php
  3. Since PaleWolf already answered: Let's vote on it!
  4. Aim lower. Sorry, I couldn't help myself.
  5. Just curious what golf (PGA) has to do with cowboy shootin' ? ?
  6. Fond memories! Thanks! I was in the Wartrace picture! I remmeber when CVV was just starting but I had to move abut then, but I got to shoot there a few times. And of course remember the Magnificent 7 for here in Georgia.
  7. I'm thinking about it. It is only about a 6 hour trip.
  8. Thanks for the work and providing new ideas. Of course, the length of the document and number of sweeps shows that using names is "fun" but not good for stage writing as who can remember 320 sequences!!? I tired of the attempt at names long ago as it was shown to be a problem at many matches and merely listing the sequence is always needed other than "sweep" and "Nevada Sweep." (So I often use the Funk and Wagner's sweep as well as the doo-wah-didly sweep.) But having the list and spelling out the actually sequence will provide shooters great variety.
  9. I didn't weld it.  All I did was use a file/stone and removed the notch on the hammers. 


    No need for welding.  Just make sure there is no "catch" for the sear there.

      Thanks. I thought I might be able to do that.

  10. Don't give up!


    Fast Eddie wants as much feedback as possible and he does consider input very important.  So he may very well decide to do the 5 and 5 as we have done in the past, but as you can tell it is a balancing act.


    And thanks for the offer to help with the scoring.  We can always use more help, especially as many of us are not what we once were.


    Sorry Petey did n't have his usual match.  I always enjoy shooting with him as he has been one of my hero's in the sport.

      Still had a great time!

  11. 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.

    Hodgdon Titegroup Rem. 209P Rem. TGT 12 17.3 8,900 PSI 1,235 fps
    Hodgdon Titegroup Rem. 209P Rem. TGT 12 18.6 10,100 PSI 1,290 fps"


    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.



  12. Wow, Carolina is really losing it.  A bit of an ego problem.


    We need folks that can spot, time and watch the loading and unloading tables.


    All tasks are important even when we cannot do every single task.


    You hang in there!

      I got them today.



  14. I find that Trail Boss is cleaner and better with a little more powder. 


    So I use 3.6 grains with 105 and 125 grain bullets.

  15. Not sure about if they will post the stages.


    But many matches no longer post posse lists due to so many wanting to swap posses - only to want to swap again when someone else does.  So it creates a LOT of extra work. 

    But they will allow folks to ask about switching when they sign up, but probably get only one change per person.

  16. You are in trouble now :D:D


    Now we all want to hear your program.


    Can i give you a call?

  17. Thanks!


    Yes it was Squaw Creek Rose.
