  1. No excuse for knife edges on mine, but I took care of it and like the gun.
  2. Disrespectfully badgering the witness about a preconceived answer doesn't provide much that is useful.
  3. Maybe you should have a different kind of powder measure, with which you can have inserts or apertures that store an optimal setting for each powder/cartridge. One-size-fits-all seems like a crude form of the reloading discipline. I get that targets are close and that recoil levels below book minimums are desired, but it seems like an element of science and attention to details should still be included.
  4. The dilemma now, aside from availability, is how much is too much cost? It is a costly sport that may leave some cowboys and cowgirls behind. The cost of ammo or reloading components and equipment are only part of what confronts our newer shooters. Nevertheless we still see new people with enough passion for joining in that they find a way to afford things, now or eventually. I am more concerned about availability. Discussing cost is an academic exercise, if key components of the sport are unavailable, or if limited supplies are only found (and in time) by pure luck, try as one might. Finding enough or a limit to justify HAZMAT fees and shipping is part of it.
  5. Same load here for my rifle, except I don't use magnum primers unless I have no choice. Once my Trailboss stash is gone, I will use various loads from existing on hand powders and look for one that might be available long term.
  6. With my new SL brass I was getting lead shaving and unsatisfactory roll crimps until I chamfered all the cases.
  7. I did not get the roll crimp I wanted until following the tip to get a Redding Profile crimp die for 45 Autorim. I use the Hornady Cowboy sizer and an RCBS 45ACP seating die. Note that for some reason the name of this cartridge does not start with the caliber. It is "Cowboy 45 Special"
  8. Cimarron's formal policy (for Bubba) is not to warrant any gun that has been disassembled to any degree for any reason. They did help me though for an obvious factory defect that my gunsmith had found in the internals.
  9. Real "fast draw" is something else entirely. Drawing quickly is not the issue as much as putting the gun back in the holster. If posting on SASSwire, it was a reasonable assumption that Cowboy Action Shooting was the background topic. I have two Tom Threepersons models from El Paso Saddlery, and with a little bit of use can require two hands to safely holster. Drawing is not the problem. Real stiffness is required. I store the holsters with pill bottles in them, but the lined leather is just too soft and pretty to maintain the shape for long.
  10. Holsters are part of the competition rather than the cowboy look. In common use are holsters that are thick and hard to hold a permanent, wide mouth shape, allowing a fast, one-handed reholstering. Many holsters are also canted to the rear to match the angle of approach. All this only matters if one is capable of really fast times or is trying to shave some seconds off transitions, but it does help ensure that pistols are not dropped.
  11. I think of that as a strawman. How many pack up and leave after one miss??
  12. Sometimes I shot clean knowing coaching from the TO kept me from getting a procedural. I will take the clean match award but do know the difference.
  13. That formula shoots the same with Clays and Extralite interchangeable with that Mec #25. I wonder about Clay Dot as well.
