    Misty Facebook post ....

    I just want to send my personal heartfelt thanks to everyone for their understanding of the decision to cancel EOT 2020. I can assure you my ties to EOT are very strong; I literally cried as I was writing the announcement.
    I will miss seeing everyone more than you all will ever know!!
    On another note, we had already ordered, paid for, and received a huge batch of Championship 1st place category buckles.. about 35 of them... Montana Silversmiths has told us they will not rework the buckles to change the year- I can’t believe/accept that all these beautiful buckles are destined for the garbage. With all our members connections- does anyone know of any resources (silversmiths) that I can contact to see if they’ll rework the year banner to 2021 on these buckles? Any direction, referrals or help would be greatly appreciated- and would greatly help lessen the sting of the financial losses due to the cancellation. Thanks in advance

    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.

  2. 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.

    The downside is that I've discovered I can no longer beat my 14 year old one on one.  He's my height now, with longer arms, infinite endurance, faster, can jump much higher and his mid-range shot is money. 

    Experience & treachery can overcome youth!!!

  4. 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!

    I’ve discovered 5-6,000 .45 Colt cases buried in my reloading room that I’m going to cut down to .45 Cowboy. Built a jig to trim them close on the bandsaw and then I’ll  finish them up on the Forster case trimmer. That ought to take a day or two.

    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.

  6. 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.

    The one issue most prevalent with the larger magnum Hadley is it may well interfere with say 100-200 yard settings.


    Has not been a problem on my Sharps.

  8. 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.

    So any Uberti rifle barrel (rifles sold through Taylor’s, Cimarron) will have a Pedersoli made barrel? Cast bullets perform well in Uberti Hi wall 38-55 and lever .45-70? 
    Thanks for all of your input. 

    Cast bullets work very well in my Uberti HiWall in 38-55.

  10. 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? 

  11.  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.
