  1. "To Warren E. Young on out 10th Anniversary-Love Judy"
  2. another picture, blow up the area around the barrel wedge and see the cat
  3. It is a Mac program I think as I use a Mac.
  4. I use .458" 500 Grn. RN Lyman 1-Cav. Mould #457125. Lyman Single Cavity Cast Bullet Mould produces Lyman Rifle bullet #457125, .458" nominal diameter, 525 grain, Round Nose bullet This is the original standard 500 grain 45-70 Government bullet. This has been in the mould line for nearly 100 years. Lyman Top Punch #374, Item#LYM2786719. Approximate Bullet Dimensions: Bullet Length-1.350". Bottom of Crimp Groove to Bullet Nose-0.76". It gives me a 530 gr bullet used in a C Sharps, a H&R Trapdoor, and a 1884 Trapdoor. I used them to shoot to 700 yards. I don't have a flexible cleaning rod so use a blow tube. My best was 7 out of 10 on a ram my not so good was 0 out of 10 shots, today with my 75 year old eyes get 3 or 4 hits is great. I like a a big heavy bullet if I am shooting over 200 yards. My guns just shoot better with heavy bullets. All the guns have their own load they like.
  5. Sam Cherry give her a call, the real engraving ... http://www.cherrys.com/samanthacherry.htm. Here is some of her work.. Sorry you have to down load to see. This is my main match guns. 1851 Colt 2nd gen guns engraved by Sam Cherry. If she isn't backed up she will do a good job and get the gun back to you quick. Her family owns Cherry's Guns. Refinish is by Turnbull-Nickel, Case Hardening, and Blueing.
  6. Tequila you call that smoke we can still see you. I think I like your loads. What were your loads? One of the best pictures I have seen showing the smoke.
  7. I just started reloading for the .38-55 in a Browning High Wall. I use FFFg as that is what I have. If I could get it I would use Swiss = to FFg. I ordered the long brass from Star Line. I made a dummy round with no crimp so the lead could move into the case. Inserted in the chamber, measured that round and set the bullet .003 shorter. Done the math to know how deep to set bullet. did the math to determine the max hight of the powder charge compressed less .060 as that is the thickness of my over powder wad. I use a 336 gr bullet that with my eyes will hit in a 5" grouping at 200 yards, max my range is. Use little or no crimp. If you use a lever gun you have to crimp. I do want to try smokeless so at that time I will use the loading manual first.
  8. I was trying to be sarcastic to Assassin's first post. I would not want to go backwards but this sport like any other has advanced as the more competitive people have looked for a way to go faster be it good or bad for the sport. Name another sport that the people spend $1000's over the years doing it with no prize money etc at the end. Do I like where it is today "NO" but would not change it as it bets the other gun sports hands down. What sport keeps their shooters coming back as the advance in age slows the ability to win the big prize? Most people doing SASS get much more out of it than just shooting. I think it is a much safer sport now than when I start shooting it.
  9. Why not go back to the first rule book and forget all the advances. Why can't I shoot in any category my age lets me, as it isn't like you are going to win the pink rusted Nash by shooting a certain category?????
  10. Shot an Indiana State around 06 give or take where the last 2 stages were shot in heavy down pour and they all went off. Loaded under my hat, keep guns under the hat till capped. After that I carried a golf umbrella in the truck and put on gun cart if raining.
  11. I would like 4 pair of Colts. A pair of Colt Paterson Percussion Revolvers, No. 5, Holster Model en-graved and with the 3 interchangeable barrels, pearl grips. A pair of early Colt 1851 Navy 1st Model revolver. Made in 1850 engraved by Gustave Young, with German silver blade front sight, full folitate and scroll-engraving, Colt one-piece ivory grip. Left grip panel with raised carved Mexican eagle other gun right grip panel with raised carved Mexican eagle. A set of 1st gen Colts, 5 1/2" barrels in .44-40 full engraved by Gustave Young or Nimschke, Nickel plated, and Standing Liberty pearl grips. Last a pair Colt .45 Nimschke en- graved with 5 1/2" barrels, Nickel plated, and Mexican Eagle on-piece ivory grips like the 1851. Would also like a pair engraved by Helfricht. all in Colt Cases with all items included at time of build. You said dream gun.
  12. I am taking mine to Ace Hardware to see if they can help.
  13. MVA and Lee Shaver win. one each to see which is more to my liking.
  14. It is so hard I have only been shooting cap guns for 65 years rain or shine, heat and cold.
