  1. I still have my Dammit Gang poker chip from that night shoot. My good friend Howdy Doody pinned it on me!
  2. Dood, I’ll take the 200 grain .308 Nosler Partitions. Please send a PM with payment instructions. Thanks, Ethan
  3. Dallas, have you made any progress with Accurate Molds? If you start making the Snakebite Greasewagon bullets with black powder lube I will be interested in buying some. Shoot me a PM if you do. Good luck with your adventure!
  4. Are any of these nickel plated? I have a use for nickel plated 40 S&W brass.
  5. I’ll take it. PM me with directions on how to get the funds to you. Thanks!
  6. I'll take the last two bags shipped to 92277. Send me a PM with payment info please.
  7. I know you didn't ask about overall cartridge length, but this is another critical measurement in lever action rifles. I recently got a good reminder that '66s and '73s don't like ammo that is the wrong length. I loaded up a bunch of ammo and just crimped the bullets into the crimp grooves on the bullets. Unfortunately this made the ammo too short to function properly. I shoot a number of dash caliber rounds (25-20, 32-20, 38-40 & 44-40) and the need to be 1.592" overall length to function reliably in a rifle. (Thanks again for the reminder Boothill Bandit) Back to your original topic of chamber size in handguns, Ruger sent out a bunch of 38-40 Vaqueros with undersized cylinder chambers a couple of decades ago and would not resize them. Mine set came with .393" - .397" chambers. The 38-40 uses a .401 bullet, so my ammo would not fit in the chambers. I sent them out to a gun smith to get them corrected after Ruger shipped my guns back to me and told me they "were built to proper specifications".
  8. Sedailia Dave, I appreciate the thought, but that seems like a lot of work. I can make up something along the lines of what Yul Lose posted below if I cannot locate the factory part.
  9. I bought a used Universal Charge Bar Model D/DS for the progressive MEC reloaders sometime back. I finally got around to installing it on my MEC 9000 and found that the Spring Retainer Screw was missing. I know it's a long shot but maybe someone has one in the spare parts box. I have inserted a picture of the part I'm searching for below. The threads are 8-32. Thanks for looking!
  10. Will do Munk. Black Powder of course! Happy to oblige Griff!
  11.  For those who remember Midway (Mark Effle), Corona Sportsmen's Club will be having a memorial for Mark at the range on Saturday February 17, 2024, at 12:00PM. Following a short memorial, we will have a reception for club members, friends, and family to gather and share some memories. If you would like to participate in the shotgun sendoff, please bring your shotgun. If you know you are coming, please send an email to president@coronasportsmensclub.com so we can plan for the size of the event. Here is a link with a map to the range that is off Lake Matthews Drive and Gavilan Springs Road: https://www.google.com/maps/place/Corona,+CA/@33.7881134,-117.429352,2499m/data=!3m1!1e3!4m6!3m5!1s0x80dcb0b9ea5d606d:0x8998d10fd29252f1!8m2!3d33.8752935!4d-117.5664384!16zL20vMHIzam0?entry=ttu The dirt road is rough at points and not suited for vehicles with low ground clearance.
