    Very cool!  But I think it might've taken a few tries to perfect the technique...  anyone notice the missing finger...?  Hand pointer finger up cartoon symbol icon design Vector Image


    Kinda hard NOT to notice the missing finger!

  2. Stretch a piece of your wife's old pantyhose over your thumb and then twist an open case against it, and you will catch every single split, every time.  It'll even catch the tiny ones that you can't catch with a visual inspection.


    I do this after I take my cases out of the tumbler, and have not had a problem at a match with a split case in years.

    I have wanted a Shiloh Sharps for years. Maybe one day...


    To make a long story short I had a chance to buy a Shiloh Sharps for $425 at a gun show. The seller had no clue. He took it on trade for an AR upper. I walked away to ponder how I would have explain to my wife I had gone over budget on my gun show trip and someone else snapped it up. Darn! I still kick myself...

    For cleaning?  Moose Milk- equal parts hydrogen peroxide, rubbing alcohol and Murphy's Oil Soap.


    For seasoning?  Whatever lube you are using.


    I believe what you describe is actually referred to as PAM.

    Moose Milk is typically 25% Ballistol and 75% water.

  5. So, after much internal debating with myself, I decided to order conversion cylinders from Taylors & Co. for my Remington New Model Army Percussion Pistols. 

    Since they represent a significant investment, I was on the lookout for some sort of a storage devise to store and protect them when they were not installed in the pistols.


    I finally came across a very nice,  ZIPPERED LEATHER POUCH on Amazon for only $15.00!

    Adding a 2" piece of foam, the cylinders are a perfect fit, keeping the backer plates and cylinders together and well protected.
