    Scarlett made a loyal customer out of me and she's my go to for range pills.

    I hope she'll forgive me for placing my next order through ACME, it's only because I want one of their wood boxes. All other orders are hers. :D

     

    (And I didn't even get a coupon for a hug.:lol:)

    You can get a Bullets By Scarlett wooden box! And...a coupon for a free hug!  Heck - I’ll give you a Free Hug for the nice comment! 
     

    big hugs!

    I will be going back to Scarlett as well. I had checked her site but they were listed as out of stock... so I ordered some from Cowboy's Choice. They arrived quickly and I have no problems with them but when I saw that Scarlett had just listed them as OOS so not just anyone could order them but had to contact her direct, I ordered 500 more from her. They shipped when she said they would and arrived on time.

     

    My next order will have to be for .45s though... got a friend talking real hard to get me to shoot Classic Cowboy. ;)

    I hope that I will have some 45 C soon... working hard to find some large pistol primers!

    Do you still have 38 rounds available if how many and how much.  Need ammo.  Thank you.  Redscoutdogs@ yahoo .com.  Outlaw #110339

    I believe that I am going to be sold out... I will be getting my remaining cartridges (for which I have components) in a couple of weeks.  I MIGHT have some left and will let you know... I will put you on my list... Thank you for asking!  Big hugs!  Scarlett

    Scarlett; How is this guy any different than any or your other customers? You don't do nor are required to do a background check on them. Conversion cylinders are perfectly legal, even in California. I have an 1858 with a conversion and the additional ejector rod, makes for an interesting BP gun. Gotta remember, BP shooters like to think outside the box. I wouldn't shoot smokeless in it, though, even downloaded ammo. I have a Webley with a blown cylinder that I used the "proper" ammo in, according to the manufacturer (Fiocchi) that I will never forgive myself for.

    The ONLY reason he is different is because of shooting smokeless in a BP revolver. Because I (and my husband) were unfamiliar with the 45 ACP Conversion cylinder... I was concerned that, even though my ammo is about 720 FPS, if there were an issue with the BP revolver (I did not know it was NEW until I had already declined the sale) or if he got hurt using my ammo, that it would be bad...first off for HIS safety and second for my liability.  The customer seemed very unsure of what he wanted/needed and was relying on my knowledge.  I was not confident that I had the knowledge he required/deserved and told him so.

     

    My husband and I were discussing this and wondered about it - we knew about 45 Colt conversions - it was the 45 ACP that threw us for a loop.  So I asked the Wire crowd.  
     

    I appreciate this forum and the WEALTH of knowledge found here! 
     

    Great big hugs!

    Thanks Scarlett. Do you use the usps priority boxes? If so have you seen longer shipping times lately? That's what some makers are saying. Others admit that they are behind on bullet production.

    Well until this week - we’ve now started using UPS ground because the US Mail was having so many issues.... one package had duplicate tracking numbers - one was Amazon and one was me - USPS issued them. My customers package went to CA instead of Texas. Then, another package SAT for TEN DAYS showed in transit...  PLUS, the mail volume is so high with everyone ordering so much. We are behind too - but catching up... 
     

    Big hugs!

  6. I GET it...  the language in the guys email - it didn’t appear that he knew what he was talking about and I just declined...

     

    My husband read the email response first and he questioned whether English is a first language ... and then that brings up legal gun ownership... even if you do have to take the barrel off to empty and reload... 

     

    The ammo that I sell is lead - 230 gr 718 FPS - and loaded professionally with product liability etc. however, it was unusual enough for me to question and decline.  

     

    Big hugs y’all!

    Missouri Bullet Company is a SASS affiliated company.   And give a SASS discount.  

    As am I however, I’ve never been to a match that they sponsored or were vending at... I sponsor every match I attend and work extremely hard, (as do other cowboy owned bullet makers) to support this sport and those who participate in it. For example, Winter Range 2021 I will be a stage sponsor. That’s. $3,000 commitment - cash and merchandise.That will be the biggest financial commitment to date - most are $250-$750 depending on match - cash/cash and merchandise. No, I don’t offer a 5% discount because I “give” to EVERY SASS member - whether you’re my customer or not - through my sponsorships and donations.  I’m not knocking MBC. They have their business plan and I have mine however, my INVESTMENT in the sport is from my heart... and don’t forget... Free Hug with Purchase! :wub:

     

    Big hugs!

    Some of the bullet makers are behind on their own but some say it's more of a question of when usps will deliver them to customers.. they can't guarantee their usual delivery time.

    We have started using UPS to ship because the delays at USPS have been as long as 8 days at some processing places and lost parcels. And, it is hard keeping up with such insane demand!  We do have PLENTY of lead - rest assured! :wub:

     

    Big hugs!

  9. Had someone want to buy some 45 ACP Ammo from me for his .44 BP Revolver from Midway with a 45ACP cylinder. I declined the sale because I didn’t want the liability for the gun - you don’t shoot smokeless in BP guns... some other red flags went up for my husband, Tommy...  

     

    So, isn’t putting a 45 ACP Cylinder into a BP revolver turning a “non-gun” (as defined by law) into a Firearm (that he may or may not have been prohibited from owning).  The Midway catalog shows the cylinder for sale - ships to your home... didn’t see where it had to ship to FFL?!  

     

    @John Barleycorn, SASS #76982 what am I missing? Why would someone want to pay $350-$400 for the “non-firearm” and then another $300 for a conversion cylinder if it wasn’t because you were federally BARRED from owning a legit firearm. 

     

    Big hugs,

    Scarlett

  11. @Marshal Cogburn SASS # 8454 I've got 45 C ammo that is a nice soft load...approaches 150 PF... its a 200gr bullet HI-Tek coated bullet and 4.5 gr Clean Shot and a Federal Primer.  Like the 38s these are out of stock but IN process...If I have a few from my WB stash when I ship your ammo I will throw some in there.  Gunfighters, Duelists and other shooters really like them...  Don't know anything about the Tex-X ammo.

     

    Take care and big hugs!

    Scrap prices are still pretty good.

    I took a bunch of steel and old brass the other day ... I’ve since found more brass to be recycled but I’m waiting til prices go UP!  
     

    one of the issues in this game (and probably other shooting disciplines) is too FEW folks do 95% of the work... and, at least in my experience, many don’t FULLY realize just how much it takes - mentally, physically, financially, emotionally to give SO MUCH of ones self to end up feeling as though you’ve been taken for granted... (not that @Mustang Gregg said that).  I think that it’s important to give those who shoot there the OPPORTUNITY to  1) step up and save it/make it work or 2) shut it down.  
     

    @Assassin!  Thank you for your gift of doing the targets with your plasma cutter!  That’s awesome! 
     

    The state of SC didn’t allow “raffles” for the longest time so all groups printed DONATION in ticket... @Black Hills Barb has a great idea about the 50-50.  
     

    Also, I bet you could get someone in SASS or Hornady/Cabela’s to do a MATCHING gift a if you raise $1,000, then they’ll give you $1,000.... I would participate in that and think a lot of other folks would too PROVIDED the CLUB was 100% participating...I’m not gonna support something from “away” that the local folks, who will directly benefit, won’t support.  can you tell I used to work/volunteer for a lot of non profits? If I have more ideas... I’ll let you know. 
     

    Big hugs!

    My bank, asks people to wear a mask, but has a greeter, who does a list of questions. then you stand on a mark, remove the mask, they take a picture and your temp.  Put the mask on and go to a teller..  

     

    My bank is still not allowing customers inside except if you’re elderly or have a safety deposit box. I wear a mask when out in public and at matches. I caught a little flak initially but my husband almost died two years ago from viral encephalitis...so I can stand some minor inconvenience... when I get to the line... I take my mask off, tuck it in my corset, shoot, when I get to the ULT, dig my mask out... 

     

    i don’t mind wearing a mask if it means MAYBE this will end quicker and it will keep my honey safe. 
     

    Big hugs!!!

    Hey Max I've been loading App in a Dillon 550 for years. The only thing I ever did was wipe the powder hopper down inside and out with a dryer sheet.. 

    PT taught me to load on the 650 using APP 3 F. I don’t go fast - I’m very methodical because I shot BP at big matches and don’t want to screw up. It’s a little but dusty and I have a little brush that I use along and along to dust off the shell plate. 
     

    I’m not sure I’d shoot BP if I had to hand dip the powder... 

     

    Big hugs!
