  1. WW, I load 4.o grains of Clay Dot under a 160 grain powder coated bullet,using cut down .45 Colt cases. I did buy 45 Special cases,but they are pretty hard to get right now.I find no difference when using cut down 45 Colt cases,and I have plenty of brass to shorten. Of course,YMMV. Choctaw
  2. I use a 2 inch chop saw.Made a jig from 1/2 inch aluminum channel. Cut a groove to hold the rim of the brass,and set the groove at .910 or so away from the sawblade,and locked it down with the saw's table vice. Make sure the belt and pullies remain tight, or it will grab the brass and throw it across the room. Yeah,ask me how I know. Of course , YMMV Choctaw
  3. What Tex said! Straight trigger also gives a better "feel" ,IMHO
  4. Slapshot, Welcome to the sport! I believe your impression of the people involved in CAS is spot on . Since I've been involved in Cowboy Action Shooting,I've met some of the kindest,generous, and just generally nicest people around. I think you will come to learn what the concept of "The Cowboy Way " is all about . Choctaw Jack
  5. What brand of primer are you using? I have more trouble with CCI than any other brand.
  6. Up for sale,my Stoeger Uplander Coach Supreme. 20 inch blued barrels with chokes, stainless receiver, reversed double triggers, and leather butt cover. Action job by Long Hunter when new, triggers reversed by Griner Gun Works. In very good conditon,opens and shucks great. Comes with the original paperwork, manual, choke tube wrench and three chokes, and a copy of the original invoice. $525 plus shipping. First "I'll take it" here on the Wire gets it.
  7. Bought t of them for the grandson. Nothing fancy,you get what you pay for. They shoot well,seem to be pretty durable. I thinned the grips and re-contoured them to fit smaller hands,and they feel and point better. For the money they do a good job. Don't think they would ever be "race guns".
  8. I take most of the usual precautions(mask,gloves,good ventilation,no food or drink,etc),and my BLLnever got above 6.5.when I switched to wet tumbling level fell to just over 3. The current thinking is that you are exposed to more lead through fired primer residue than you are from your lead pot. Of course , YMMV. Choctaw Jack
  9. Yeah,he had definitely been eating well!
  10. Just a shout out to Captain Clark,Hands, and all the Gila Rangers for a great State match.Beautiful location,great stages and well run all around. Congrats to Bud Guzzlin',overall winner ,for a hard won victory(1st and second place separated by .249 of a second)and all the category winners. Once again,Thanks to the Gila Rangers for a great shoot! Choctaw Jack
