  1. That is AWESOME news! Congratulations on purchasing the range!  Tommy and I talked seriously about it ...but it was too far away from our families. SOOOO GLAD cowboys (and soon to be cowboy) have purchased it!

     

    Really excited about coming back and being a sponsor. Y’all do such an outstanding job!

     

    ONE Question: Did y’all remove the pole in the middle of the field? Remember, I flew “my broom” into it last year...damn broom GPS! 
     

    Take care and can’t wait to see everyone!!

     

    Big hugs!!

    Good luck on your search for the shotgun.

     

    John Barleycorn has an SKB 100 in the Merchants Corner for a decent price.

     

    Call @Scarlett / Bullets by Scarlett,  she might have some ammo.

    It’s gonna be about two to three weeks before I’ve got more but it’s coming!  Please email me at bulletsbyscarlett@gmail.com with your shipping address and what you’d like. I will email you an invoice when it’s ready to ship. 
     

    Thanks so much.

    Word Is she uses trained squirrels on Lee singe stage presses  :lol:

    OLG 

    The squirrels are trying to start a UNION so I had to serve them up in STEW!!  As to the original question, they are loaded on Dillion 1050s  Automated.

  5. PLEASE NOTE:  My website says to CONTACT SCARLETT to inquire about Cowboy Cartridges in 38 Special and 45 Colt.  The 45 ACP are out of stock indefinitely.

     

    I have taken my cartridges off of the website in order to limit sales to ONLY SASS and COWBOY shooters.  SASS/Cowboys are for whom the ammo is produced so I am going to do my best to provide, as long as I can, the best ammo to the folks who support me.

     

    I know it is clearly stated on my website because I have gotten numerous inquiries - email and phone.

     

    Big hugs,

    Scarlett

    GunShotResidue is airborne.   Very finely divided lead oxides and carbonates.   Easily inhaled, and lungs are an easy way for lead to get into body quickly.  Also the finest lead particulate from target splatter goes airborne.  Look closely at shotgun targets as they are shot, and you see a fine gray cloud around them for a few seconds after the impacts.  

     

    And, GSR is removed from fired cases by any brass cleaning technique.   If vibrating, it's in the media unless you take extra steps to capture it.  If wet tumbling, it's in the liquid.   If not cleaning your brass, then it's still sticking outside and inside the fired cases when you load them.

     

    Lead bullets don't create airborne lead - very hard to get metallic lead into body (unless it was shot at high speed).  A small amount of lead COULD be transferred from fingers to mouth to stomach if you don't wash hands. (where stomach acid dissolves the lead, and dumps it into your blood stream).   Casting bullets creates VERY little airborne lead - the liquid lead alloy is never hot enough to generate vapor of any significant amount, so if you take care with the casting dross and dispose of it carefully, there's little contamination.

     

    Unfired primers - folks don't handle them directly much anymore with primer flippers and feed tubes on loaders.  Really a minimal path for lead contamination.

     

    Concentrate on the pathways that are prevalent and possible to intake into the body.   Then control those exposures.    

     

    Good luck, and good handling habits, GJ

     

     

     

    You are right on the money! I cast for 5 years 4 days a week and NEVER wore gloves...however, I washed my hands A LOT with Lead Remover (amazon - think it is called Lead All Remover) and and wore a mask EVERY TIME - EVERY TIME I handled dirty brass, tumbled and sorted... I also shot minimum of three weekends per month, ran the timer, etc... and my lead level NEVER got above 12...it was 9 when I started.  HYGIENE, HYGIENE HYGIENE!!  Wash your hands before you eat, drink, smoke, touch eyes, nose, mouth.  Also, DO NOT LICK YOUR EARPLUGS!  You are handling your ear plugs with dirty hands and then sticking them in your mouth! ICK! 

     

    Big hugs!

  8. If you buy your bullets...you have more time for shooting... (Full disclosure: I am @Bullets By Scarlett :wub:) HOWEVER, I do think I have some valid points for you to ponder:

    1) you will shoot/practice a LOT more with the 38s than with the .45-70.  There are a LOT of weights/profiles for the 38 Special... that would mean a lot of molds... buy the 38s. - at least until you settle on a weight/profile THEN, if you're so moved...buy the mold.  You'll have to cast so many of these that it might take some of the joy out of casting - it becomes like work.

     

    2) the .45-70 are big - 405gr is what you will probably settle for (its what I shoot in my 1885 Hi Wall and LOVE IT).  I have a few pards who cast the 405 and really enjoy it...then, when you shoot it, hit the target at 200+ yards, you'll be incredibly satisfied that YOU cast/sized/lubed or coated the bullet that hit the mark.

     

    3) This should have been first - figure out where you will source your lead.  There is NO SHORTAGE of lead but there is not a lot of "free or cheap" lead...and wheelwrights are mostly zinc now.

     

    Of course, if you cast your bullets, you'll have to buy something else from me in order to get your FREE HUG WITH PURCHASE! :D

    When this insanity comes to an end. PLZ consider selling primers & powders. 

    I want, as do others, to support a SASS vender like you.....

    Respectfully, 

    OLG 

    Thank you very much. I appreciate it very much and I work very hard to support the sport, that supports me, in anyway that I can.  
     

    I usually stock as many Federal primers as I can afford and sell at matches and from my shop...I haven’t ever shipped primers because of the hassle and... I can’t buy them as well as the big companies ... and there’s not any $$$ in them much anyway... I DO sell APP (and drop ship by the case),  Clean Shot (ShootersWorld Powders) and can drop ship for additional hazmat...

     

    Thanks, OLG! I appreciate your support and feedback!! 
     

    Big hugs!!

    How's your primer supply for your ammo business?

    Are you licensed to ship primers and powder to customers?

    OLG 

    Primers are not available from me except in the form of ammunition! :D..and, I’m beginning to get nervous.... and I am not (never have) shipping primers though I do ship APP by the case and can, if necessary, ship ShootersWorld powders.  We look for primers every day and will load cartridges until we can’t. We have loads of other components... I did remove the cartridges from my website and ask folks to call me because I am not gonna sell to a non cowboy... I’m in this business BECAUSE of cowboys and FOR cowboys..so that’s who gets first dibs.  


    Big hugs!

    One of the Major problems in our game is loss of hearing. Whether through age, ear plugs or whatever. Compound that with having to speak through a muffle, and whether you think it or not, a mask is a muffle for us harder hearing folk.

    In my mind, if you're that concerned, don't go to the shoot. If you're that sick, don't go to the shoot.

     

    I wear a mask because I do not want to GET sick because so many of my pards don’t socially distance or wear masks.. And I don’t know where they have been or with whom they have been in contact. if I’m TO, I’m wearing a mask. If I need to speak to the shooter, I can lower the mask (standing behind shooter and give instructions or whatever) or place my hand on the shooters back/shoulder if I need to stop them.  I’ve never been told by folks that I speak too softly! :)  I timed half the posse for 6 stages last month with a mask and there were no issues. In fact, I think that I was a better TO wearing the mask because I was paying extra attention.

  12. I am often the LONE mask wearer at local matches... I wear one the whole

    match when NOT shooting... brass picking, timing, spotting, whatever.  I got a bit of ridicule when I showed up with a mask ... (yes, Cypress Sun has a very valid point, though I’m not yet ready to say the Cowboy Way is a crock of shit, it’s on life support with some pards..).  I love this game. I love that it’s my business, too!  I also love my husband (extra risk factors) and my neighbors, known and unknown, enough that I’m willing to endure the minor inconvenience of wearing a mask to stop the spread of this virus. 
     

    Big hugs. :ph34r:

  13. Federal small pistol primers will be available when Federal has loaded up all the ammo (9mm presumably) they need for stores...they are their own FIRST best customer. My primer needs have grown exponentially because I offer cowboy ammo. I get far better return on investment on primers when I sell them in a cartridge vs by the case to my bullet customers... so I get where Federal is coming from... I hope that they catch up soon...

  14. Glad your APP arrived! :wub:  I have a Lee hand priming tool that I use VERY on the rarest occasions. I used to load on a single stage press and though hand priming would be easy. It’s not my favorite way to prime and...since I’ve gotten really busy in my business progressive loading is all I really do now. 
     

    I’ll follow this post to see what others have to say!

     

    Big hugs!

  15. I have been shipping a LOT with UPS lately and have had no delays...(cowboy cartridges).  I create label and it tells me when package will arrive and ...it does. Cancel the order and place another one!

  16. I used Pro Grip and it works well but switched to @Slick McClade’s Magic Hand Chalk after I forgot my Pro Grip and a Cowboy gave me Slick’s stuff  loved it ... it’s not as chalky and works great. Plus, it’s a cowboy owned business, so that makes it even better!

     

    Happy Trails and Big Hugs!

    . Found a tiny bag of desiccant jamming the hopper. Discovered the manufacturer puts them in the APP canister,

    The APP is very...hydroscopic...I think that’s the word...draws moisture... so it needs the desiccant bag... I was told to look for it when pouring into my hopper... I use a funnel so it catches it in case it sneaks by me. It’s good someone told me ...I’m not big on reading the labels. Give BP another shot!  It’s such fun and the APP is easy clean up!
