  3. Sorry I just saw this but I have two and want to convert my set so I'll need them both, thanks

      No problem! Good luck!

  4. I'm interested. I was hoping for blue but how much are you asking for the pair?

  5. It'll do fine if you do your part. Good luck.
  6. If you do them let me know I'd get 3 market 38. 

  7. Hey buddy my wife's loads were a number 19 bushing of Clays and a claybuster pink wad and 1oz of shot we she started. Same MEC 600 press. Don't hold me to it but I think it was 11.9 grains. She HATED the shotgun and the only way I could get her to shoot was groom a very light load for her double. Those loads were super light but still took down all the targets with no issues. She shot them for years but I weaned her off them in time......I went up a bushing about every six months or so and she didn't notice. She shoots a 24 now.

      Those even tripped her dirt merchant SG.

      Great.  Thx Junky.  I will try it.

  8. I have a friend that uses 231 in 38. He uses the 105 or 125 grain @ 3 grains and they are very light load. Not a mouse fart load just light. Personally I like them heavier but that gives you a good "low" range........or starting low point. Good luck. 


    Cut the loops down for the size of the bullet and sew them back up.......that's legal. I had all SG loops in this belt and cut some of them down to fit 38's.

  10. I wanna' see all the comments.......I'll sort through them myself........lol. I wonder if "everyone" is seeing this? Hmmmmm.
  11. Warning: Don't drink and post..........lol
  12. I got one for my wife and it runs like a top......she liked the logo on it.......lol
  13. I'm certain the rifle has to be set up for the shooter........or it can be outran.......and I have done it. I was at a match and had to borrow a rifle because I trashed another italium lever on a 73. The rifle I used was 73 with a lever safety and had a very light hammer used by one of those thumb planter shooters who are very popular in these parts. Thanks by the way! He could shoot the rifle very close to my split times.....if not equal and the rifle ran like a dream for him. I didn't have time to test fire it so I used it in the next stage. I threw 3 or 4 rounds out that were heavily di
  14. IMHO you are better off thinking what kind of primers do my guns need. That depends on who built them, how much you lightened them or what other mods have been done as well. My rifle shoots anything because the hammer speed I need. My pistols shoot anything because the transfers bars are gone which makes ignition much easier. The SG is an SKB and to get it to feel and operate the way I want it to I have to shoot "easier" to ignite primers in it. Then you have my wife's 73 that's set up so light (for her) I have to use Federals or possibly Winchester but it's on the fence so to simply my li
  15. Most out-of-the box completion guns (for any venue) get you about 75% there IMO. They beat stock guns hands down and if you aren't super competitive might serve you well. But if you get the fever you'll STILL have to tweak them.
  16. There might be a slight recoil difference between a 45-70 Military round and a 38 SASS load too.
  17. Sometimes those sights come in handy IMO. I tried SS and had too many misses......that was before you could paint em' so I had to switch back to blue. For me I could pick up the blue better.....I guess the SS was too busy. Now that you can paint them it's not a big deal but and I guess shooting plate steel at 5 yards or less they don't serve much of a purpose but when the bonus targets, stars, plate racks and stuff pop out it's nice to know you can hit them when the chips are down.
  18. That's what I did....plus the amount of tape you add to the shell will let you "groom" the fit. Too tight they don't come out....too loose and they fall out when you run.
  19. From what I found it ONLY matters if you are playing around at the bottom of the charge levels. I use to shoot light loads 8 years ago and noticed a difference then. I took 50 rounds of Clays 38 loads and put them in the freezer over night......say zero deg. When I woke up I put them in a cooler with ice and went straight to the range and shot them though the Chrono vs ammo at ambient temp. I don't remember the temp that day but it was average say 75 deg or so. There wasn't much of a difference in velocity maybe 50 FPS but if your at the low end that could make a difference. IMHO now I
  20. I wouldn't switch then. I had the opposite feeling so the decision was easy. I was at a match and trained wrecked a 97 and Dirt Merchant & Fast Eddie told me I should try to shoot a double. I told them I tried a few doubles and hated them. Dirt was just starting to build SKB's and he took me over to his truck and showed me 3 SKB's he had just built. I picked it up and feel in love with it right OFF the bat. That was the single best move I ever made in SASS.
  21. Yes Chili Ron it's a short stroke blued rifle not stainless sorry about that. And yes Widder it's the rifle you shot and had Slater do the trigger on....it's a great rifle.
  22. Edit's not working and I also forgot to add that the rifle was sent away for a really nice trigger job as well. I "think" Slater did the work but Widder dropped it off for so I'm not 100% on that. I'll get with Widder and make sure about the Smith.....but either way the trigger is very very nice.
