  1. Sell the Henry Big Boy....Keep the Marlin.
  2. For me they don't seem to go through as many reloading cycles as my brass ones do. If I do use them I prefer to shoot them in my pistols only as I don't trust shooting them in my rifle in case one fails and won't extract.
  3. I prefer to load my 38-55 ammo using a single stage press with either my Lyman Orange Crusher, or Herter's Super Model 81 Dual Ram cast iron press.
  4. I believe BP subs are classified the same as smokeless powder for shipping purposes incurring just the hazmat fee.
  5. I bought a pair of Heritage revolvers a couple of years back on special for just over $100 each. I use them a couple of time a year since the two clubs I shoot at have a .22 Rim Fire class using .22 pistols & rifles. I have no complaints on the Rough Riders as they have functioned just fine for me.
  6. Brass cleaning questions/concerns on the various reloading forums never ceases to amaze me on how caught up people are with shiny brass. The purpose in tumbling brass is to remove any dirt or foreign contamination so as to not harm your brass or dies during reloading. Simple as that. I have never seen a difference in my target groupings between dull or shiny brass, and I have never heard anyone at the range or a shooting event remark as to how shiny someone's brass was.
  7. I don't see us opening at Heidelberg anytime soon. The ranges just reopened with shooting bench relocation's & virus safety protocols in place, members only - no guests on club grounds, all club events/activities cancelled through May 24th at this time. If we can get back to shooting, and still having to adhere to virus safety protocols, I see 10 in a posse, everyone will be an outlaw with a bandanna over their face when around anyone, individual loading tables set up to maintain the spaced 6' apart rule along with non shooter staying 6' apart, and with only 10 in the posse everyone would have to work. I guess time will tell.
  8. I had a pair of 1860 replica Colt Army C&B revolvers when I first got into this sport about 9 years ago. I purchased Howell 45 Colt conversion cylinders for them. The pros were they were very cool looking, smooth, and fun to shoot. The cons were they were kind of a pain to load and unload. You had to be very careful of the cartridge OAL as the cylinders were on the short side and if the bullet tip was ever so slightly past the end it would bind on the barrel. I loaded and shot 45 Schofield in them because of that issue. Lastly the firing pin heads mushroom with the amount of shooting we do, which can cause misfires. Although I purchased hardened firing pins they would still mushroom, albeit not as fast, but you needed to check and maintain them after every shoot. For some fun and a change of pace once in awhile they are a lot of fun. As your standard CAS pistol not so much. I ended up eventually trading them in for a set of Uberti 1876 Cattleman in 45 Colt.
  9. Happy Easter to All !!!!
  10. I have a pair of Uberti Cattleman 1873's in 45 Colt that I also purchased 45 ACP conversion cylinders for. I can shoot either 45 Colt, 45 Schofield, or 45 ACP out of them. I mainly shoot 45 Schofield in them, but I have shot a match already with 45 ACP. You just need to double check your 45 ACP reloads in the cylinder for proper fit if you are going to shoot a match. That extra task alone makes using 45 ACP better for just plinking than for a match in my opinion.
  11. We do JW shoots usually in the hot summer months so we don't have to pick up brass, and it is announced in advance. The stages are set up to have the "rifle" targets as close as is safe, around 10 -12 yards with larger plates, and the JW shooter can move up closer to them, normal pistol yards, if they choose or shoot them from the table. Regular cowboy classes shoot as normal. If someone shows up at a regular monthly shoot and want's to shoot JW they can, but the rifle targets are shot from the table at 15 yards just like the regular cowboy shooters.
  12. Yep I agree with OLG. The RPP extractor pretty much just dumps the brass out to the side about a foot or two in my two Marlins.
