  1. 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
  2. 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.

  4. I wish they only cost like a 12 gauge! $7 and change each.
  5. Easy there pard...coming late to the party. FYI I run qty (2) 3.4 cc dippers FFG (100 grains), Circle Fly .125 over the powder card, Circle Fly .500 fiber wad over that, 1.25 oz reclaimed 7.5, Circle Fly .025 over shot card hot glued in place.
  6. Because the 12 gauge just isn't big enough... 45's not bad Pistol too
  7. What a great idea. Worked perfectly. The insides were clean and sears crisp with almost no wear... didn't look 137 years old. Hammers tweaked, firing pins free and striking; need to load some brass shells for tomorrow. Might have a match day shooter here. I will work on those hammer springs next; these are stout. Thanks for your help.
  8. Why such a light charge... there's plenty of room left in the brass shell
  9. Warden Callaway All checks out, ring test good, bore almost shiny after cleaning. One hammer slightly bent, put back on line. Firing pins and other functions work cleanly. Before I booger it up, what is the next step to remove the side plates?
  10. IT'S A GO... HANG AROUND AFTER BBQ TO SHOOT OR CATCALL You know you want to. We will set up 2 side match stages at the Fort for anyone energetic enough after the Mission BBQ dinner. Sun sets at 7:11 pm, high hills and 1/2 moon will make it dark quicker. Torches, lanterns, and a good time. Black powder not required but encouraged. Should be a great way to end the first full day of shooting. Pretty much guaranteed 2 clean stages between flickering torch lights, smoke and flame from the barrels, making the spotters unable to confirm with certainty any misses! Let me know if you need a few loading blocks of BP cartridges (45 colt), happy to supply. Might even have a few extra firearms...that big 10 gauge should make a show!
  11. 10+ Permanent bays, all across a West Virginia mountainside under shady hardwoods, no sun umbrellas needed.
  12. Know them well...Toledo Torches. Millions and millions. Virtually all made by one company Toledo Pressed Steel Company. Now they are a collectible. I might be able to find some.
  13. I really am warming up to the tiki torch idea...thanks
