  1. Well, southern folks been practicing...I drove down from Massachusetts for my second year at GA State. Last year I came in third in catagory (Silver Senior)...this year I thought I shot quite well....came in 7th !!!!? But it was a fantastic shoot! One of the best I've ever attended and I've shot quite a few all over the country. Fast Eddie and Max Pane really took care of me with having to use a tent this year (RV issues)....and I was bestowed Spirit of the Game which is very appreciated. Going to practice for next year! Thanks to all!
  2. Tent is going up as we speak!
  3. I just calculated a standard state match with 10 main stages, three warm ups and four stages of Wild Bunch....(WB at 28 45ACP rounds a stage)....Main Match = $73.88 / WB = $41.12...Total $115....Not too bad for three days of fun. Could lose that in about ten seconds at a Casino!
  4. The problem is getting low recoil shells...Have not been able to find Winchester 980fps shells for two years. I used to pay $64 for 250 after the yearly summer rebate. My wife can't handle the 1100-1200fps loads. And If I can find them, they are $120-$150 for 250 around here (New England)..... Lately I'm paying $90 /1000....I have a friend that works at Cabelas and he grabs me 1000 Federals whenever they come in. But he can only get 1000 and he gets no employee discount on them.
  5. Has anyone sat down and figured out what it costs per round to play this sport? (Reloading) I just did, and unless my math is wrong....It ain't cheap! Not counting brass expense I come up with per round: 45ACP = .23 38Spl= .18 38/40 = .20 Shot Shell (1oz)= .34 Interesting.....
  6. Thanks Eyesa......Are you going to PA or TriState?
  7. I rebarreled my 5.5" NM Vaquero to 4.62"......Needed to modify the ejector rod housing so the attachment holes lined up. Made a jig for the lathe to accomplish it. Too many pictures and words for here. I penned a quick article about it... http://rvbprecision.com/firearms/ruger-new-model-ejector-housing-modification.html
  8. Might be easier and less expensive to buy a shorter barrel from Boomstick and swap it out. I just did this on my NMVaquero. $90
  9. A friend asked me to help with fitting a replacement barrel onto a 1897 action. He bought a barrel assembly off an auction site. I tried all the typical adjustment with the indexing of the interrupted threaded breach of the new barrel. Before the barrel indexes properly, I run out of "teeth" on the rotating extension.No matter what I do it will not index enough before the breech face of the barrel hits the internal face of the receiver. Verified with Dycan marking fluid. Is it customary to face off the breech face of the barrel to mate the two? It looks like a thou off the barrel would do the trick. The shell headspaces off the internal ring in the receiver so there is no issue with moving headspace. Any suggestions are appreciated...
  10. Looking for a 4.62" Stainless Steel New Model Vaquero barrel in 357/38 Will trade 5.5" stainless steel, 357/38 barrel if that works for you......Or will buy outright Thanks Best to contact via email rvb100 at comcast.net
  11. Easier to send it to the fellow in Oregon that will bore it out to .375 and chamber it in 38-55. I've had him do three rifles for me. All shoot amazingly well and very inexpensive. https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=http://www.35caliber.com/&ved=2ahUKEwjm8IXro433AhXDhIkEHeVJDIIQFnoECAQQAQ&usg=AOvVaw3oQTqs5dQguMzK8Wt-I8EQ
  12. I'm missing the point here...???
