  1. I have 2 cases Federal SPP on the way from Natchez. $989. SC adds tax $82 and $19.95 shipping and hazmat. I prefer paying the extra for known product however, I am interested to hear how they perform.

    Another choice is @Scarlett she sells a really nice brass cap that can be taken off by hand.  Squibs stink!

    Thanks! @KingSnake makes the Brass Magazine end caps that I sell. They look pretty AND allow for easy removal so that the MOST NEGLECTED part of our rifles is easily accessible to clean!!  $15 plus $5 shipping.

    I've tried a variety of methods, and I have decided to use a Gun Valet. 

    Like a caddie in Golf, I'm going to get a Gun Valet, so I don't have to spend all that time in the garage cleaning.

    Now I can spend more time taking my wife to run errands and spend money.

    You are a GENIUS!! I was cleaning my guns after the BP mini match today and someone thought I “also cleaned guns”! :D:lol::wub:  I told him that I cleaned my OWN guns… and that there wasn’t a person on the range that had enough money for me to clean their guns! Lol


    There is definitely a niche market for a Gun Valet service!

  6. This happened to me at a BP match. It caused much conversation.  

    All knockdown stage. - 20 total P/R knockdowns.  any KD still standing could be made up with SG. Makeups were fired at the KD targets - not a separate make up target. 

    pistols - got knockdowns. Rifle - got 7 knockdowns and had split case I couldn’t get out. This was last stage of what would have been clean match so I tried valiantly to get case out so I could continue…to no avail. I declared BROKEN GUN and moved to SG to make up the 3 standing and TO screamed STOP, PM screamed SHOOT. TO and PM had   discussion.  I didn’t care but the TO and PM disagreed so we got MD to make call. 

    Final call - which I agree with 100%.

    The stage called for 10 rifle shots. Only those targets that were, in fact, engaged could be made up. I could not “make up” for rounds I did not shoot. Jacking a round out is not, in my opinion, engaging the target. Misfire is different.  Had I been able to “make up” those three standing plates I would have had a clean match. Firing the three additional SG rounds would have added (easily with my skill level at the time) 15 + seconds to my total time.  


    I wish firing 10 and can’t make up for jacked rounds would become the convention because there are folks who could/would easily Jack rounds out - gaining a competitive advantage…


    Just my thoughts. I’ll be quiet :D now and wait for @Branchwater Jack SASS #88854 to weigh in. 

    Big hugs!

    Count Sandor writes great stages and the all shot gun stage is always fun. I'm sure you will enjoy the lunches and the diner cruise will be relaxing and enjoyable. Just remember to bring some bug spray. 

    I shot with Count Sandor and Partner’s Parner TODAY!! Really looking forward to the match and we travel with Thermacells and bug spray! :D

  8. The 125gr bullets I sell (and shoot) have no lube grooves OR crimp grooves. No extraordinary crimping is required to keep from collapsing in to the case in a rifle… the benefits are: you can adjust the OAL for your desired length specific to your rifle. Also, as for no lube groove - why have a lube groove for no lube? As for us, when replacing molds during Covid, the no grooves makes sense. They cast a better bullet, coat more evenly, are easier to inspect for quality… not a sales post but I’ve sold thousands of this bullet profile over the last year and a half and have heard of NO issues…

    Neither, it’s an addiction.

    You know, that’s true. Thankfully, there’s no 12 Step Program for it! :D  


    Big hugs and look forward to seeing you and your family in Georgia!!

  10. Fort White Cowboy Cavalry are OUTSTANDING!! They put on one heck of a match. I wasn’t at the Ladies Match however, I attend the Dark Days black powder championships every January. FWCC club is friendly! Has great bays/berms. Many are covered and there are fans for summertime. If you have the chance to go…GO! If you want to be a part of the Dark Side…come in January! 

    I hope to be able to attend the Ladies match in 2023. I had a previous commitment this year. 

    Big hugs and May the Smoke Be with You!

    One of my pet peeves is someone chattering to me at the loading table and if need be, tell them not to talk to me. I'm counting rounds being loaded, trying to get the stage in my mind and don't want to hear about misses, P's and other train wrecks. 

    That’s simple etiquette. I’m a chatterer (I know y’all ain’t surprised)… if someone asked me a question, I’d answer it. THEN, folks on a different flight or posse would see me and ask me to save some bullets or powder back for them… that’s an occupational hazard for me - and I politely say, go see Tommy… when the shooter before me gets called up, I CLOSE my eyes and my mind to EVERYTHING but the stage and hum so I don’t hear chatter and run through the stage in my mind. MOST of the time the outcome is something I can be reasonably proud of… others? Well, it was FUN!

    Early on in my SASS career, I was more serious about having a good match and being recognized as a 'fairly good and competitive shooter'.

    But even back then, I never took it serious.  I never let a Miss or a 'P' dictate the outcome of my great day having fun with friends.


    NOW.....  I feel like NOBODY has anything to prove to anyone.   I don't have anything to prove to anyone and nobody has anything to prove to me.

    So I show up, share a genuine smile with everyone, hug a few beautiful ladies,

    and try to shoot a SAFE match, although I still hope to shoot it quickly.


    P.S. - Hey Tennessee, ain't you got some work to do besides creating stuff for the wire?

    Ain't there a DQ somewhere you can go sit in line to order a B'split?





    Yeah, yeah, yeah…it’s a game and you have nothing to prove to ANYONE except @Red Knee with the fastest ‘97 runs on Side Match Day! :P

    For me, it’s a little of both …AND a business. Bottom line: if it weren’t FUN, I wouldn’t work so hard… I love this game/Sport and all the folks who play it!

    I shoot 2F in my trap door with good results. I found an old can of Goex CT in the shop but have never used it. I think the CT was 1.5F from what I was told. I agree what is said about Pyrodex and have stayed away from it for years. Black MZ was sold through Sportsmens Warehouse and was a product of APP. I paid $9.00 a pound when I bought three cases a few years ago. It was repackaged and sells for $25.00 or more but never used for long range so no idea how it would shoot. Black MZ works good in my Schofield rounds but don’t like it in my C&B revolvers. Try all but Pyrodex and see what your rifle prefers.

    Black MZ was 2.5F from APP for Alliant. Alliant had storage issues or something and unloaded it to Sportsman’s Warehouse for CHEAP.  Now, Shooters World (full disclosure, I’m rep for both SW and APP) offers Multi-Black - the same formula as Black MZ also made by APP. I say all this to clarify that there was not some huge price increase or gouging situation. It’s because the Black MZ was sold so low and we got spoiled…now we have to pay “real” money for it. 

    @Cholla let us know what you find out in your testing! I’m gonna start shooting my 45-70 again and want to use APP! It’s gonna be fun. I’ve missed shooting long range!


    Big hugs!

    I think that at $89.99, there is still a lot of price gouging going on.  Federal announced that they were raising prices 5-15%.  Two years ago, we were paying about $35/K.  I can do simple math.

    My suppliers show our wholesale cost between $58-68.  They don’t have any for me, of course, but if I needed primers? I’d buy whatever I needed for $90 or less.

    Hey Scarlett:

    Are you going to be at the Ohio State Match over Memorial Day weekend.
    Can I save $$ by having a case of 3Fg delivered to me there?

    Please let me know.



    Replied to your email just a bit ago. I’m not gonna be at OH but can probably give to a cowboy in Georgia who is going…

    Yes I can give you a dealer hear to ship to, they have an exporter in Michigan who handles all their imports.

    If you can get an indication of the price shipped there, we could do some calcs from then on.

    What about APP, we can maybe put something together.

    Miss y'all too

    Ok. Gonna see about this…
