  1. I've had pretty good luck finding lead sheeting at the local recycling centers. Anywhere from $0.90 to $1.00 per pound.
  2. John, I've had good luck with 5.2 grains of Clay Dot, 200 grain RNFP bullets and 45 Colt cases in my '73 rifle. For my over-the-top rifle reloads, I've had good luck with 4.6 grains of Clay Dot, 200 grain RNFP bullets and 45 Schofield cases. Finally, I've had good luck with 3.8 grains of Clay Dot, 180 grain RNFP bullets and 45 Cowboy Special cases in my OM Ruger Vaqueros. WK
  3. Yes. Different tubes call for the application of different voltages on the various components of a given tube. That’s why knowing the tube numbering is important. That way. you can pull the “rotten orange” and replace it with a “good orange” rather than a “good tangerine“. In the old days, simply swapping tubes was one of the first steps of troubleshooting. Having a tube tester made it easier, but they’re not made anymore. It amazing how much a good quality used tube tester fetches on the auction sites.
  4. Collecting and refurbishing old vacuum tube transmitters and receivers (nowadays called “boat anchors “) is a sub hobby within amateur (ham) radio. Kinda like shooting frontiersman in CAS. There are outfits that have stockpiled new old stock vacuum tubes to cater to that market of consumers. Someone with a blown tube would probably first check the tube to see if its numbering (e.g. 12AX7) still appears on it and then go online and look for a potential supplier.
  5. I've had pretty good luck finding lead sheets at our local recycling centers.
  6. I lost the one I found here several years ago and need to find a replacement. Something with an overall length of about 8 inches should work. Thanks. Will Kane
  7. My first rife was a 94AE in 45 Colt. As others have described, it was clunky; but, mine was very reliable. I outgrew it pretty quickly and ended up selling it and some other guns to raise the cash to buy a Codymatic.
  8. There are also some great places to eat in Columbus.
  9. You might consider Texas Grips. https://texasgrips.com/ Henry Lance is a great craftsman and a good guy to work with.
