  1. My Dad’s side of the family is from Canton, China (not Canton, Ohio) so since I started SASS shortly after he passed away & my real name is Chris, I became Canton Chris to honor him.
  2. I load 44-40 & 38-40 on a Dillon 550. I use the rcbs cowboy dies with the Redding profile crimp die & get good results. I stopped loading those two on my 650 because I’d get a few crushed mouths plus the 550 is easier to set up.
  3. If you are going to Winter Range or can cut a deal with shipping, Sarival Slim’s deal looks hard to beat!
  4. I use 1.1 gr Bullseye & the 78 gr Missouri bullet in a mid 30’s lemon squeezer. The smallest lee dipper is too big for this small of a load so I just weigh the charge out. I use lee dies as those were the only ones I could find for the 32 S&W that we’re available. It’s a very mild load but fun to shoot!
  5. Would you be interested in doing a face to face transaction?
  6. Well, after watching this for entirely too long, if it’s still available, I would like to purchase it, please let me know. Thnx, Chris
  7. If #9, the 25-20 Marlin is still available, I’d like to purchase it, thnx, CC
  8. I’ll take it if it’s still available, pm otw
  9. I pretty much cast for all of my pistol calibers. Started powder coating about 3 years ago when I was shooting steel challenge with my 45 acp & had great luck with it, so when I started Cowboy Action shooting I powder coated those bullets as well. I use clear powder so they look like natural lead. I use the shake method, bake them in a convection oven & size then through my star lubri- sizer. Alway have good results. Another benefit of using multiple colors is that if your working up a load, you can use different colors for different powder weights and for different powders. I cast my own bullets because I can get the exact weights I want & close to the bullet diameters I want. (Gotta tip my hat to Tom at Accurate Molds as he will cut you pretty much any bullet you want & the mold quality is one of the best!) I currently shoot 44-40 & 38 Spl but just ordered a 38-40 mold because I just bought a pair of pistols from Reverend Ledslinga! I suppose I could shoot bullets “as cast” but like knowing that what I shoot has been sized for uniformity! I enjoy this part of the shooting sports, knowing that what I shoot is produced by me from start to finish. Kinda makes you even proud of your misses! Lol
  10. I've only bought items but all the transactions were perfect. Most shipped before they even received the funds. Everyone I've dealt with have been A #1 in my book & I also want to thank the Moderators as well!
  11. I'll take it if still available, pm me with details on how you want to proceed, thnx, Chris
