  1. Picked it up tonight. It was marked "carbine" on the barrel. No sights, plain barrel. Looks fired once ...ramp to chamber no scratches, one small ring around firing pin on bolt. Gave the tasco 3x9 scope to kid at shop picking up a 243 ruger american, was trying to make a rimfire scope work...that wouldn't have lasted. I'm looking for a 1.5-4 or 2-7. Got the 165 gr bullets and will be working some loads. 4350 and 4064 powder not around in 1 lb, going to try some Nobel Vectan Tubal 5000. Only 19.99 for 1.1 lbs. Really fits well. Quite the upgrade from my 336c. Trying for one next week after sighting in.
  2. 300 yards? That's a long way to drag some venison LOL. Just iron sites on the lever action, have to adjust for a scope.
  3. Don't know why I bid on it, but it looks almost unfired and its mine now ($300) Fore arm does not have a cap or Schnabel; looks to be a Sporter. Was a carbine made or was the barrel cut from 24"? Cheap scope and high mounts will come off. Besides a few deer with my cowboy 92, over 100 with my Marlin 336c (Remington core-lokt 150 gr.) What cartridge should I use with this for a whitetail?
  4. Giving up hurts more, quitting is forever. After 40 years of hockey and tree work: Alleve, sauna, yoga stretches, and don't forget the value of 60 ml C9H16O2.
  5. I use the big lube bullets for the rifle (24" barrel) and Missouri BP or Cheycast BP for the revolvers (5.5" barrel). No leading problems.
  6. If I go too fast I can’t admire the fireworks.
  7. Black MZ and APP load and perform the same. Lots of smoke but no deep boom and flame like BP. A good starting point on the way to black powder. I shoot 45 colt and have migrated to Reenactor grade for the 10 (Winchester 1887 lever and Remington 1883) and 12 gauge shotgun (Boito Kmart special), and 2F for the 45 cases both regular and cowboy special under a 200 gr bullet (Miroku 73 and Rossi 92, Ruger OMV Bisleys). No filler, all smooth shooting nice boom, smoke, and flame.
  8. Run 45 colt with good crimp. Normal BP cleaning regimen. Used brake cleaner to bare metal then Ballistol when switching to BP. Now everything stays soft until I get around to cleaning it. Recommend a full size inert cartridge to help reassembly. 44-40 should be no problem what so ever.
  9. Thurmont this weekend, Damascus and Largent WV third weekend. NRA range first Tuesday evening of the month.
  10. Bruce, just stop shooting on a posse with either myself or Jack U Mist. Your loads are plenty stout if you compare them to all the 38 shooters.
  11. Started with Harbor Freight double drum for 2 seasons. Adequate when shooting smokeless and 38. Changed to 45 and BP went to Frankford. Excellent product good volume better cleaning BP loads
  12. Started with this formula, then spent the summer messing around "to save lead and powder". HA! What a waste of time. For me the formula on the Lee Load All is green Gun Club hulls. Cheddite 209, Lee Dipper 4.0 cc any granulation BP from Renactor, 2F, 3F, it doesn't matter. Claybuster Shotshell Wads 12 Gauge CB1138-12 (Replaces WAA12R) , 1 oz insert for reclaimed 7 1/2 shot, firm pre crimp, firm crimp. Repeat and don't look back. I will never run out of those cheap Gun Clubs, I'm throwing out a 42 gallon bag full of hulls all colors of the rainbow.
