  1. Actually it does, Minute Rice has a rough surface and when fresh is does polish brass faster than regular rice. It only lasts one or two tumblings though. As I said upthread I played with it 30 years ago .
  2. Apparently you need this because you can't handle factual refutation of your pointless argument. Enjoy.
  3. It was 30 years ago but most likely cheap long grain since it was the most common.
  4. Works great but takes forever to get it out of flash holes and it sticks in almost every one.
  5. Never shot a rifle caliber repeating rifle match huh? Lots of levers shoot rifle caliber cartridges in the appropriate category. I shoot a Winchester 1894 in .38-55 as did a few other folks at the SER, one fella shot a .45-70. All your arguing and scientific noodling aside the rules are clear: “Rifle Caliber” competition rifles must use traditional, period, rimmed cartridges. No cartridge chambered for use in any SASS approved main match revolver or rifle may be used in the “Rifle Caliber” competition, except the .56-50. Thus, .30-30 (.30 WCF), .38-55 Marlin & Ballard, .43 Spanish, or .45-70 Government cartridges are legal, while a .375 Winchester, .444 Marlin, .32-20, or .44-40 are not legal. Shotguns using slugs are not allowed in the Buffalo Single Shot competition. " .44-40 by definition is a pistol caliber cartridge and there are categories specifically for pistol caliber rifles. Action throw length and recoil difference would allow a pistol caliber rifle an unfair advantage over the rifle caliber rifle thus different categories. You are however free to run a match with pistol caliber rifles out to any distance you like since nothing in the rules defines the distances to be shot just the categories, gun and ammo requirements. PS- using jacketed bullet data to argue with is pointless for SASS. Lead, gas checked lead or polymer coated lead bullets only.
  6. You're welcome. They are unlined, literally just there to hold guns. Made to fit my 7" Schofields but will also hold my 5-1/2" Colt clones. Flaps to help keep out dust and rain.
  7. I had Denhams make a pair. Top strap sewn on with 2 wood screws and fender washers, bottom attachment is part of the holster, woodscrew and fender washer.
  8. The state of Alabama has a high school shotgun program. Maybe worth looking into. Does your state have anything similar? Good idea. Difficult for stage writing I think. A bigger problem for folks with kids is time with all the stuff kids do these days the young parents may simply not have the time; I have a friends in that boat.
  9. You're welcome Dungannon and thank you for the compliment on our match. With us limited to 200 yards it took a bit to come up with something that won't drive new shooters away from frustration and not be boring to experienced shooters. Looks like I hit the challenge/fun split just right.
  10. Check the date of introduction for the cartridges. The .405 WCF is from 1904, I will disallow it from Buffalo Rifle at least in the annual matches I run.
  11. Ordered one from Long Hunter Friday, can't wait for it to get here to try it.
  12. It's been the rule for how long? Has it worked? Does everyone understand the rule? Just leave it the hell alone!
  13. Are any of the cowboy smiths working on these yet?
