  1. I have a 10G roll crimp tool. Might have a priming tool. I’ll look when I get home.
  2. I use 14.0 with 7/8 oz.shot. clay Buster wads.
  3. Decided to drag everything out of the safes, make an accurate list of what I actually have. got the pocket pistols done
  4. I’d just use them as is. I bet not one cowboy/cowgirl will complain! Would be a good reminder of a crazy time in our history.
  5. My part of Texas most are 60-75 yds. i shoot an original trapdoor Carbine , made in 1874. It won’t shoot Reduced loads worth a hoot. But 405s with a full case of APP works well. One club (old Fort Parker) has really close targets, 30 -40 yds. Some a tad closer. I punish those a bit, Bent Barrel Betty used to fuss at me. so I bought them a sheet of steel for new targets.
  6. Experience & treachery can overcome youth!!!
  7. Bear creek supports lots of SASS club annuals with bullets. Steve is great to talk to about bullets. He has sent me several sample packs to try before ordering. I like his coated 305 grn for my 45-60, and 255 & 310 grn in my 38-55s I don’t like the coated 38 special. Slippery little rascals. I drop as many as I load!
  8. Yul, Harbor Freight sells a pretty neat mini chop saw that works really well. I used it to cut down 45-70 to 45-60. https://www.bittychoice.com/products/mini-bench-cut-off-saw-steel-blade-cutting-metal-wood-plastic-adjust-miter-gauge-for-diy-working?variant=31486318182496&utm_medium=cpc&utm_source=google&utm_campaign=Google Shopping&gclid=EAIaIQobChMI2srol-7F6AIVidlkCh0RtA3hEAQYASABEgIGZvD_BwE
  9. I do recall that. I was just hoping somebody had Better luck, or double alpha had fixed any issues. guess I’ll just stick with my Frankfort Aresenal Vibra prime.
  10. Anybody using one of these? https://www.doublealpha.biz/us/daa-primer-pro-collator I currently use a Frankfort Arsenal vibratory primer tool. It’s not perfect, but waaaaay better than pecking at primers. if the Double Aloha gizmo works as advertised I’d prolly get one.
  11. Plus one for Polish capper. They work. And stout enough to fully seat caps. And kinda cool getting the package with all the Poland stamps. I had absolutely no issues with my credit card, but might be wise to get a pre-paid Visa card and use it.
  12. Has not been a problem on my Sharps.
  13. I like Kelley sights. Kinda spendy. MVA are also excellent. Get a "Magnum" sized Hadley Eye Cup. it will help. front sights pretty easy use a brass punch, or a Wyoming Sight Drifter. Some are held in place by a tiny set screw, but most are just a dovetail. if the dovetal is too tight, file it, not the gun barrel. usually just rubbing the bottom of the sigt on a file will do the trick. if loose, put a dab of locktight on it.
  14. Ruby Kate makes an excellent point. Don’t scrimp on sights. My favorites are Kelley sights, MVA a close second.
  15. Yes. I shoot a Uberti Win 76 in 45-60, with a 305 grn cast bullet, 12 grns Unique.
  16. Cast bullets work very well in my Uberti HiWall in 38-55.
  17. Thank you Flat Top. This must be a nightmare for all match directors if state & regional matches. I am prayerfully hopefully that things will ease up soon.
  18. I'll take 8. Pacific De-Burring Tool, RCBS primer pocket cleaner and Hornady primer pocket cleaner $24.00 now $20 TYD tried to send PM, your box is full

    for the ROC & TGs

    I saw in the WInter Range TG meeting minutes some discuson on legal long range rfles. I for one would love to see Win 95s allowed (with Climbing Lyman sights!) Ive been wanting one of these fine rifles, but would want to be able to shoot it in a match, not just "plinking" at the range. Martini Actions would also interest me. What dooes the rest of the herd think? what rifle would you like to see allowed?
  20. For your pistols, contact Jimmy Spurs. for your leather, J-M leather. you can do no better. Both will work with you to get exactly what you want.
  21. In 1964, Justice Potter Stewart tried to explain "hard-core" pornography, or what is obscene, by saying, "I shall not today attempt further to define the kinds of material I understand to be embraced... ut I know it when I see it ..." I suspect this is more or less the ROC standard.
