  1. ouch! Must like the sil. Been researching a bunch. I presently use the sear or reverse sear (thickness dictates) and the oven. Gan cook some awesome steaks/pork chops but I would like to try the Sous Vide method. Vacuum bag, immerse in pot for a determined time with Sous Vide device attached and you get a medium rare steak every time. Sear with the ol' iron skillet and you get a steak done to just this side of medium. Throw away the bag, dump the water and you are almost dome.
  2. Who uses one and would you recommend yours?
  3. I have a C Sharps Hi Wall. I use a dowel rod (doesn't touch primer) to push a stubborn round into the chamber. Most all that need the cam takes very little leverage to seat. A couple years back someone was making the plastic cam and they were not reliable. I do not know if this is the same. I don't think so since prior post says his works.

  5. Prayers for one of the nicest and one of the most helpful cowboy I know. Thinking of you and yours, pardner.
  6. Howdy Harold, 

    Thank you for the photos. It’s what I’m looking for, and if you will share the shipping cost 50/50 I’ll take it.

      Brad, UPS wants approximately $200.00 to package and ship including insurance. That would be $600.00 for the machine and $100.00 for half the shipping. Anything over $200.00 I will pay. I do not want to do paypal because of the fees. If you want to do the deal, send me a money order for the $700.00 and I will take it to UPS immediately. Please let me know.

      Howdy Harold, 


      That's more than I expected. I will continue to be patient in hopes of finding one locally, or a new one on sale.

      Maybe you will sell it to someone local. Thanks for your efforts to make this deal work.

      I wish you better health in the new year.

      Buck, I have sent photos to others. I am waiting for responses. If I do not have a response from anyone by Sunday at, say, 5:00pm, I will accept your offer.

  8. "At 45 Colt velocities, unless you have a fitment problem (too small a diameter) or a rough, irregular bore, you shouldn't have any leading with dead soft, pure lead projectiles." What Griff said. You can drive a soft lead bullet too fast and you can drive a very hard bullet too slow. Either will cause leading. http://cowboybullets.com/ Read the home page.
  9. Because of back surgery (and a lot of difficulty before surgery), I cannot run and gun. So I got interested in "long range" rifle. I had purchased a Marlin 336CB 38-55 years ago and decided to start to work. I started loading in 1963. I have a couple of rifles that I load for and thought "ain't no big deal". Well let me tell you, you ain't never run into a really confusing situation. My point. I am very thankful for all the responses from Marlinowners., Levergunscoundrels, and a number of forums who spoon fed me on the slippery 38-55. I also want to thank Lee Shaver for taking the time to discuss the 38-55 and the different chamber specs of the 38-55. I totally agree on book learning. I state that book learning is specific and does not take into consideration good, honest, passed down experience. John Boy has posted some very interesting forums/articles/posts. But............I have a question about breech seating. But wait. The original owner had the Marlin "throated". And I borrowed a reamer that removed the abrupt leade into the lands. I can seat a 260 gr bullet so that less than 1/8" is in the case and it will chamber. Is it safe to breech seat in such a chamber? No, a forum is a forum. a place, meeting, or medium where ideas and views on a particular issue can be exchanged: synonyms: · conference · seminar · an Internet site where users can post comments about a particular issue or topic and reply to other users' postings; a message board.
  10. The holster thing reminds me of the original black powder hoorah. There are some who do not believe cowboys should use a cut down, radical cant (legal), speed rig. Then there are those who are looking for the ergonomics of a rig to fit their need for speed. My heroes are Steve McQueen, James Drury, Peter Brown, Clint Eastwood and even Russell Crowe. The only one in the whole movie who wore a holster that one could actually get a fast draw. Sharon Stone would have hurt herself if she did "hit it hard". That first shot of the match or the first shot of every stage is an attention getter. I firmly believe that if one has to require his body to "strain" ( as in not ergonomic) in order to draw and get off that shot fast, he is wasting some time. Hunch your shoulder up, break the wrist to the back to get a grip. Bad leather. My favorite is watching cowboys draw with their weak hand and do the transfer for the shooting grip.
  11. Trailrider, the double buckle belt shows up once in a while in the old movies.
