  1. If you decide to build your own annealing machine, the article I wrote on my web site might help. I built this one a few years ago and use it extensively on 45-70, 38-55 and other high power centerfire cases. I shoot 38-40 in my rifle and 45 Cowboy Special in my revolvers. Both these cases leave guns super clean so I don't bother annealing. http://rvbprecision.com/shooting/brass-annealing-machine.html
  2. Yes....With black powder (or substitute) it could. As long as the case is full and holds the bullet from collapsing into the case and jamming up your rifle. With smokeless powder and not a full case, a good crimp is needed and annealed brass might not crimp tight enough.
  3. You need a Blakely Box for extra ammo tubes. My 44-40 only holds 7 rounds. I use it at a few shoots with a Colt Walker and a Colt Dragoon....Full House Blacl Powder loads of course!
  4. Look what has happened to Colorado, Virginia, Maine....And what is now happening to Texas, Montana, Idaho, New Mexico and Arizona....The influx of northern liberals is a real issue. The want to leave what they don't like and bring with them what others don't like....
  5. BTW...Power is important.....When I bought my KOWA I bought two eye pieces...A 20-60 variable and a 20X Long Eye Relief. ....I've never used the 20-60...Never! The lack of eye fatigue with the long eye relief during hunting where you are behind the scope for hours is fantastic. And at the range just quickly looking over the eyepiece is great. Usually anything over 30X will introduce so much mirage where we do most of our shooting as to be worthless. In the KOWA scopes the various eye pieces can be where the money is.......Not inexpensive, but well worth the $$
  6. What ever you do....NEVER look through a really good spotting scope....It will ruin you when you see how fantastic real good optics can be. I had been using $200 spotting scopes for years...Then I looked through a Kowa with extended eye relief......Bad Move! Nearly $1000 later all other spotting scopes appear to be like looking through a jar of Vasiline! There is NOTHING like good optics when you arte trying to see bullet holes out at 500+ yards..... Spend the money and be happy for life!
  7. Gunrunner Gun shop in Middleboro Massachusetts has a 30" Uberti in 44-40 for $950..........Saw it the other day...Just an FYI
  8. Only posting because I know these are hard to find....Local gun shop in Massachusetts https://www.northeastshooters.com/xen/threads/used-ruger-old-army-45-black-powder-single-action-revolver-650-00-plus-tax.381573/
  9. Drones with cameras are known to hover over bathroom skylights.....Just saying!
  10. Anyone know where I can find the CAC 2020 schedule?
  11. I guess my Uberties are a few generations old.......I was informed by other that all newer Uberties have this spring installed from the factory.
  12. On Saturday, on the last stage of a Cowboy Action Shoot, on the last round fired from my Uberti SAA revolver, the handspring broke! I fixed it with a modification I've done to all my Pietta Cap and Ball revolvers. Here is a write up with lots of pictures on what I did to fix it.....Now it is just like a RUGER! http://rvbprecision.com/firearms/uberti-single-action-army-hand-spring-fix.html
  13. Seems when I go to some kind of shoot, or hunting event, with door prizes, I always win binoculars! I must have half a dozen sets of excellent binoculars. Easily, dollar for performance, you can't beat Nikon Monarchs......Compare optically to binoculars costing three times as much. Bird Watchers are the experts in thius field and the Nikons are highly recommended.
  14. Trust me....Buying an RV like buying a boat is NEVER a sound financial decision....NEVER! But that's not the point. I stayed in motels my first year or two. Missed way too much. Actually didn't enjoy going to three day shoots. Now I consider the camping at events easily 55% of the fun of a weekend shoot. No question. The campfire, the ApplePie Moonshine, The Blueberry Cobbler, the Pot Luck Dinners, the absolute frivolity can't be missed!
  15. Driftwood....Great score! I saw that rifle and it tugged at me.....But I have an 1889 in 38-40 in amazing condition. But then again, you can't have too many old guns, can ya! BTW....It amazes me at how many guns I've seen at various Cabelas that were mis identified. I've made some amazing purchasers as I traveled around the country and visited the Gun Libraries. Did you see the nice Winchester Low Walls they had a couple months ago.........Great deals
  16. When Reno Brown is traveling with me I drag my 20' Toy Hauler......Lots of room for "stuff" and built heavier than a standard tow behind trailer.... But this year, when I'm going alone, the trailer is staying home and the RTT (Roof Top Tent) will be used
  17. I've used boiling water with sugar.......Dip boot upside down keeping foot and sole out of the boiling water. Put something in boot to hold shape and hang upside down to dry.

    Add to this a stage that can be shot many different ways and by a Gun Fighter!!!
  19. Many of the police departments that use the range I supervise have switched to 45APC and use ammo with small primers. I have thousands of once fired cases with small primers. But I don't use them in Wild Bunch as a courtesy to my fellow pards. Getting a few small primer shells mixed up with your large primer cases can be a bad day at the reloading bench. I use them for practice and plinking only.
  20. Another...(Hope no one is using this method in a restaurant!)
