  1. The inexpensive Harbor Freight model works for all I need. Totes
  2. I've always heard that MPro7 and Hoppe's Elite were the same. I have tried both and can't tell the difference other than the price. Maybe an alternative if you can't find Mpro7 or looking for a cheaper product. Hoppe's does have a nice Military discount program though VistaOutdoors! Totes
  3. Abilene, I propose removing personal messages and inbox content. Not purging forum posts/content. Also, I am willing to wager that if the admins looked at the analytics on the site, a small group of users hit their limits on an ongoing basis. Totes
  4. Maybe a timed delete of old messages. Meaning messages are good for 30 or 90 days, then they are purged. Might be a way to save overall space for the Wire that could lead to a higher limit of individuals in-box size. Totes
  5. That’s fantastic! Brushy and Mar-Lynn are the land owners for our range here in Texas. They are huge supporters of SASS and both are dang good gunfighters. Congratulations! Totes
  6. I would use caution unchecking that setting. It could impact your experience on other sites as some icons are custom fonts. Totes
  7. I've always shot grooveless bullets in CAS. In my early days, I needed 2 OAL’s since my wife shot a Marlin and I shot a ‘73. She has since moved to a 73, but I continue to use the same bullet. Precision bullets out of Kemp Texas makes various sizes in this type. Totes
  8. Very few of the clubs around me are setup for down range movement, but lateral movement along the firing line could be done at most any club. It would take some getting used to. I recall the first time I shot PCC at the Bar 3, movement was encouraged and I still found myself planted when hammering the trigger. Totes
  9. I remember a video of Hairtrigger Hays on this subject. Body in continuous motion but feet riding the line of movement, but I think it was on Facebook. He had posted it asking for a consensus. I'll see if I can find it. Totes
  10. Great to see the range back! Looking forward to Bayou Blast! Sent my registration the first day I seen it available. Totes
  11. Dillon is one of the best presses out there and their no questions asked parts replacement puts them at the top for me. Totes
  12. I have both 650 & 750 setup side by side on the bench. One is setup for small primer, other for large. If I was to buy another one or recommend someone to buy their first, it would be the 750. The primer system makes the difference on the 750. After setup, most all other functions are the same. Totes
  13. So, where do I buy a IJAFS pin? Totes
  14. On mine (plow handles), It really helped them shoot flatter and I like the balance/weight on mine. I went with 5.5" from Snake Oil George. When I sent them to get engraved, I shot my backup 5.5" round barrels and I could really tell the difference. I plan to get my backups converted over to octagons as well. I think you will really like them once they are done. I also think they look really kool. Totes
  15. Not sure if Left Wheeler sells them, but he has installed them in all my rifles he built for me. Maybe give him a shout. Totes
  16. it doesn’t have the split in the middle and the drop tube is on the bottom. Totes
  17. I put a LOT of effort into shooting sub-2 second rifle strings and along the path, I jacked out a LOT of rifle rounds and still do on occasion. Because of this I had to learn how to reload on the clock out of necessity. For me, over the top with my right hand is the fastest. It wasn't in the beginning, but after hundreds of attempts, I feel confident with my technique. It all comes down to what technique you want to invest the time in. If you only do it a few times a year, you may not get really good at either, but if you do it a few times a match (or stage), you get pretty good. A slightly shorter .38 round helps and I did that in the beginning, but now I just use my standard length reloads and don't go to the trouble of loading shorter rounds for reloads. I have also watched a world champion reload a Marlin through the gate vs. tossing it in the action like most. Through the gate is likely the safest way if you don't want to invest the time in really learning another technique. Totes
  18. My wife found this at an estate sale and it needs a stand and a hopper. I have no idea what brand it is, but guessing an early Lyman? No marking I can find on any of the drums or body. Anyone know the brand and if there are parts to be had? Totes
  19. If you're interested in splitting up the package, I would be interested in the 45 Colt conversion set and 45 Colt dies. Totes
  20. You can go even lighter with Clays. I use the same components above with 10.9 grains of Clays. You should be able to find a load you like between 10.9 and 13.9 grains. Totes
  21. I had 5.5" octagons installed on my Ruger's and I like the added weight. Seems to make them shoot flatter. In fact, they started life as 3.5" and I removed those shorter barrels to have the longer octagon's installed. Totes
  22. After running the timer and sprinting after some of the top shooters, I WELCOME a slower shooter to catch my breath!! So, please shoot at your pace, you could be saving a TO's life. Totes
  23. We give out clean shooter pins to those that achieve it. Shooter can sign up for any category, but we only publish the overall list at monthly's but it indicated the shooters category. None of the regular clubs in Texas that I shoot at give out anything beyond a clean shooter pin at monthly's. Totes
