  1. Not sure about the Henry. I know the H&Rs are not Cody Dixon legal. Given the very simular design, I'm guessing they would not be legal either, but I'm not the one making those rules.
  2. One has to wonder why they did not make a nice double. Has to be a bigger market for them than a single shot. The rifle would be about like a H&R Handi rifle. Legal for plainsman, not for Cody Dixon.
  3. Found my HiWall, hope to pick it up Saturday. I got a deal I could not resist on a Uberti 38-55. I've ordered brass, bullets dies etc. Can't wait to shoot it! And yes, I've started dreaming about a 40-65....... I have been sight shopping. Narrowed down to MVA or Kelley. Kelley cost a few bucks more, but they are nice looking! I know MVA sights have a great reputation, anybody have experience with the Kelley sights?
  4. several of us S.Texas cowboys are making the trip up. Looking forward to seeing the new range. Also looking forward to seeing my partner Jim No Horse.
  5. It was out if commission, is back up now at www.plumcreekss.org
  6. Sounds good! Will we b Sounds good. Will we be able to post pictures direct?
  7. 1860 Henry and 1875 Remington's in 44-40. Or my 66 and Rugers in 38. Maybe all of them!
  8. What ya gonna shoot Bob? I'm thinking I may shoot BP Sharpshooter. Of course, I'm just a young pup, won't be in the old folks posse
  9. thanks for all the info. I cant wait to shoot it!
  10. I wonder if a heavy blanket or tarp behind the target would work?
  11. Found my High Wall. Now looking for reloading components. Brass, dies, bullets etc. Plus if anybody has any "pet loads" they want to share, please PM me. I am also looking for a set of quality sights for the rifle as well. What has worked well for you?
  12. I have one in 44-40. I mostly use it for WB. Fun rifle to shoot, and I've had zero feeding issues.

    Derringer question

    I'm more or less in agreement with you on which barrel fires first at a side match. Doubt it matters much. I did have a Bond in 45/410 I could see where you might want to select if you had 45 on 1 barrel and 410 In the other, for defensive purposes.
  14. Looks like I may be in the market soon for a Hiwall. I think they might be the best looking singles shot rifle around. I already shoot 45-70, so that probably makes the most sense as I already have the components, but also considering a 38-55. Probably wont shoot it over 500 yards. Any thoughts on maker, caliber, sights, trigger(s) etc?
  15. when shooting falling plate racks, don't wait for a plate to fall before going on to next plate. go back and pick up any still-standing plates. on a in-line rack, where a plate has to fall to expose the next plate, just keep on shooting. if the plate is not all the way down just hit it again. Just be mindful that you have to have at least 1 bullet for the very last plate!
  16. I ordered fed primers from Cabelas in June, they said they would be back-ordered when I placed the order) They sent me an email asking if I wanted to keep the order active in August. I said yes. Primers arrived in October. I was glad to have them! I felt they acted honorably, told me they were back-ordered prior to my purchase, checked to see if I still wanted the order to remain on back order, and finally shipped (at a very good price, 26.99/K!) I have plenty on hand now, but when I get below 10K I'll probably order from them again.
  17. Like you, I did not think I had time or knowledge to reload. I bought ammo from Georgia Arms, Ammo to go etc. then figured I would learn how to reload. I bought a Lee Loadmaster progressive. 1/3 the cost of a Dillon, and loads just as good ammo. Its not as hard as you might think. just take your time and read, watch U-Tube videos, and find a mentor. one of your cowboy pards will be glad to help you. I also have a Lee Classic Turrent that I load every except 38sp on. They are cheap, easy to run, and I can easily do 150+/hr on it. I can do about 300/hr on my loadmaster. check out this kit, it has everything your need to get started. http://www.titanreloading.com/kits/lee-classic-cast-turret-press-kit I found I enjoy loading, and there is a lot of satisfaction in shooting your own ammo. My cost for 38sp, excluding case, is around .10/round. most expensive part is the bullet at about .06.
  18. I'll take the sizemaster. (super-sizer) PM sent

    Check out a Smith Ladder sight. I've been pleased with mine. http://www.buffaloarms.com/Smith_Enterprise_Sights_it-164010.aspx?CAT=4077
  20. I'll take 500 green STS hulls $60
  21. about 3.05 shells more per lb of shot. = 76.25 per 25# bag. of course, if you have to make up a couple that you might have otherwise knocked down..... I've been loading 7/8oz. I have a load I'm happy with, so I doubt I'll change.
  22. I must be missing something..... Plinker had a pair for sale, but they are sold, are those the ones you are referring to?
