  1. While shooting? They go in a container with soapy water. At home? De-prime, wet tumble with Strat-o-Sheen, lemibrite, and car wash soap, no pins in the tumbler. Brass comes out looking like new.
  2. Integrity - what you do when no one is looking
  3. GB as you can see for yourself they are about $1,600. I wouldn’t think the patina would devalue it, if wood, bore and action are good I’d give them $1,400 all day.
  4. All I know was that y’all better stop all this chicken s**t hex stuff. It bit me in the behind big time today, can anyone say out of battery discharge?
  5. I don’t know how you got the CH4D dies to work, when I tried the roll crimp die it wouldn’t crimp the shorter shell. When I use it on a longer shell it works fine but with the shorter shell for the ‘87 the die just doesn’t go down far enough. The only thing that I came up with was to cut the die about ½ inch, haven’t done it (yet) but that’s the only thing I can think of to do.
  6. I apologize I should’ve said that I’m using a reproduction with a drop 2 modification. I’ve had great luck using plastic hulls with a roll crimp, they feed well every-time.
  7. I’ve got an ‘87 and tried using my brass 12 ga in it and it was iffy at best. The leading edge of the brass shell is sharp and tends to hang up, now if you could roll that edge over just a little then I don’t think you’d have a problem. I’m still not giving up on the brass shells in the ‘87, I’ve got a few more things to try first.
  8. No beer for me thanks, I’m holding out for the good stuff. One smokey old fashion Barkeep
  9. Enjoy your match this weekend in the lone star state. And say hello to my pard @La Sombra
  10. I posted 1 question on stages 1-5 and 2 questions on 6-10. Thanks, I figure if I thought of them others would too.
  11. @Branchwater Jack SASS #88854 interesting stages, thanks for being so open and giving us a virtual walk-thru. Caution, be prepared for a couple of questions, after watching the videos I saw a couple of questions in the making
  12. I used that program the first time last year at the Ides of March and it’s very user friendly, I liked it.
  13. Yep, but you’ve got inside information Going to miss shooting with y’all.
  14. Couple of other things to think about is how many wheels; 2, 3, or 4; they all have advantages and disadvantages. What type of gun storage not only for long guns but for pistols as well. When shooting Frontiersman a place to charge the cylinders is nice to have. And last but not least is plenty of organized storage space, think of everything you’ll want to bring spare ammo, drinks, snacks, etc.
  15. Just spit ballin’ but since the 1901 looks identical to an 1887 other than the gauge I don’t think anyone would have a problem with it. Plus who doesn’t like a big boom with lots of smoke
  16. How about Billy then? I’m on Posse 4 who am I?
  17. Speaking of posses, I know who I am, but almost everyone else is a mystery, I’d love to see the posse list with aliases. Then we can play a fun game of “what’s your real name”
  18. It was such a good time and posse 13.5 was awesome. We had a good time, had fast shooters, clean shooters and everyone pitched in. @Tennessee williams and @Sedalia Dave did an excellent job running the posse. And of course folks like @Widder, SASS #59054 and @Mean Mary 45913 kept everyone shooting straight. Thanks to all of the hard working pards of the Wartrace Regulators for putting on another quality match!
  19. I’m using the @Warden Callaway tubes also, they do work I went a different route with mine, I bought some of @Lady Pearl bags. Her small bags are a perfect size for 10 balls, 10 wads and 10 tubes of pre-measured powder. When I need to recharge the cylinders I grab a bag and I don’t have to fiddle around with big containers of stuff. When done the empty tubes go back into the bag, keeps the gun cart neat and clean. I usually have an extra bag, just in case, 5 stages-6 bags go in the cart.
  20. I had the loading lever latch fall off during a match, now I carry a pipe cleaner with me. The wire is thin enough to get a good tight twist and the cover prevents metal to metal contact. It’s only a temporary fix, but it saved my bacon and I even gave one to another shooter who was having the same issue as you.
  21. I looked at this and wondered if it would work on brass shells.
  22. @Joe West will you be going to the SE Regionals by any chance? I’m interested in them, but for that much money I’d like to see them and hold them.
  23. That was always my golden rule…NO CAMERAS ON LIBERTY PERIOD
