  1. Thank You for letting us know. This year has been a mess for all the clubs. We will be planning to attend next year for sure.
  2. Is there any word on the Illinois State shoot yet? Is it a Go, is it Postponed or Cancelled. It's creeping up on us fast. It's a Great Shoot and I don't want to miss it if it's still on. Asking for a friend.
  3. Unless the range has specific rules that states that you can't carry, I figure it's a Don't Ask, Don't Tell. Leave it in your holster or pocket and know one will know you have it.
  4. I love mine S/N AOC36XXX. Hand fitted a bushing to a match barrel, full length guide rod. This will feed an empty case. (below is a 50 yd. target)
  5. Slim's comment is the part that will get banned from the Wire. Remember ... what happens at Ohio State stays at Ohio State. Tryin' to save your reputation hOOt.
  6. I'm only using, and only tried 2f. Like I said, I think the problem was with the way I had the case belling die (powder funnel) set up. The measure operator rod needed to make a full stroke to get a consistent charge weight. With the Lee dies, using a full stroke would bell the case mouth more than I was used to so I backed it off. I'm sure I could have worked out the bugs but when they both didn't fit the press tool head, I gave up and purchased the Dillon Measure for the black and the disk measure for the grits. It does look and feel cheap but then again it's only $29.99
  7. I bought two with the hopes of using them on my Dillon 550. (with a price of $29.99 each I couldn't help myself) Here are my results. 1) I seemed to get varying powder charges with the first one. There seemed to be a lot of play in the lever that wouldn't give a me a consistent weight. (part of that was the way I had the powder funnel flaring the case mouth.) I hot glued the arm to remove the play. 2) I set up the second one to weigh grits. Worked fine for that. 3) Tried to install both on Dillon tool head. No Go, they won't fit. Put second one back in the box and put it on the shelf. 4) Ordered a Dillon powder measure for the Black Powder set it up and installed one Dillon and one Lee. All is good in the Black powder loading world for me loading 44-40. One note, put in the large powder bar in the Dillon. The volume needed for the 44-40's with grits filler maxed out the small bar and with it opened all the way up it seemed to always spill some powder and make a mess. The large bar works much better. I have only loaded about 150 rounds but it look like it will work fine.
  8. I made this for a hat rack at the back door. It would work for gun belts as well.
  9. Vacation is already setup for those days. I'll be ready.
  10. Dutch Nichols just posted two New 45 cal. 73's in the Classifieds for less than $1,000. They are beautiful rifles with nice checkering. Check one out at Buffalo Arms website. I have used one of them since I started shooting. The 18" barrel is light and fast moving. If it was a 44-40 it would be hard not to buy one of them. That's my 2 cents.
