      Thank you for the offer. But I found all I need for the moment. Be well!

  2. I loaded 60g FF Jim Schocky with 1oz #8......This is a square load using the largest dipper from the LEE dipper kit. The only real black I have currently is FFF and FFFF, which I felt might be too powerful. Will try them out when it stops raining.
  3. I have a 1954 "Sporter" Winchester 52.......Amazing story on how I bought it a few years ago for $550.......Have been offered thousands for it! Like new condition with a number of factory options..... https://images108.fotki.com/v156/photos/2/36012/9511925/DSC_5000-vi.jpg https://images41.fotki.com/v1635/photos/2/36012/9511925/DSC_2317-vi.jpg https://images20.fotki.com/v1666/photos/2/36012/9511925/DSC_2330-vi.jpg
  4. I've shot with Dee a couple times down south. He made this Yankee feel welcome. None better in my book!
  5. Simple fire suppression is as used in marine engine rooms. Self contained. I saw where one fellow also hooked it up to his alarm. Intruders are covered in foam.....
  6. If you are going to the PA State Match...I'd love you to look at it. Thanks
  7. Thanks for the advise.....Where are you seeing rust? There was a small spot near the new muzzle that was surface and came off with light application of 0000 steel wool and oil. I used my bore scope and inspected the bores and they are pristine.....nothing to cause concern as far as I could see. Please counsel me on this rust you see. Thanks
  8. After really thinking about this for a while, I'm going to order the 10g to 12g adapters and try them out. I must have 5000 12g AA hulls in a huge garbage can...Makes more sense to go this direction for now. If 10g shells at a reasonable price turn up, I can can always reverse direction.
  9. Did you mean..."Anything more than Black Powder"...? "Smoke = BP?
  10. Here we have "Little Skeeters" which allows 12g or 20g in a 10g......Six of the 12g adapters for $129.....Much more expensive that 6 brass shells. But you can reload them at the range to shoot the next stage as long as you don't need more than 6 shells..... https://www.littleskeeters.com/product/10-12/
  11. Anyone have an familiarity with sleeving 10g Damascus barrels down to 12 or 20 g? Seems this was something done quite regularly in the past... https://www.practicalmachinist.com/vb/gunsmithing/sleeving-shotgun-barrels-126803/ https://www.doublegunshop.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=422137&page=1
  12. Thanks Hoss, I got that booklet, but it mostly lists loads that are more than I want for SASS......Looking for 1oz@980fps....this would be same as Winchester AA CowboyLoads..... All the brass shotgun shell suppliers are out of stock......I've checked them all. There is a fellow in Colorado that will turnthem out of solid brass but way more $$ that I want to invest right now. I have a lathe and am quite proficient at using it. I might make a few out of 7071 aluminum or brass. But the aluminum version would be a bugger to eject by standard cowboy action methods. Not enough weight....
  13. Thank you...I'll consider that.....
