  1. Hi, I keep stuff long enough to dispose of it; just before I discover I need it. My record is 20 years. I threw it out and then needed it 3 weeks later. Mike
  2. Hi, Wow, what a idiot I am ! I bought a hat in my size. When it gets too small I get a haircut, LOL, regards, Mike
  3. Hi, I have always used the slingshot method. I have complete control of the pistol. I don't hang on to the slide, AKA slingshot. I recently had a reblued 1911 made in 1918 that I purchase from a shooter 20 years ago close on an empty magazine. I had to changed out the slide stop, I checked the magazine first. I got my first 1911 in the 70's and this is the first slide stop I have had to replace, YMMV, regards, Mike
  4. Hi, I have under 1K. I have two friends at my club that have barrel scopes; one with a TV monitor. They say my barrels look good. I reload and find that the lighter loads using H4350 gives me the best accuracy. I also routinely use a "Chamber Chiller" as to not heat up my barrel, too much. My newest 6.5 Creedmoor is a Tikka T3x Tac A1. After the AR 15 the 6.5 is the rifle I see the most at my club which has 1000 + members. I am involved with "Centerfire Benchrest" and qualifying shooters for our 500 meter range ; so I see a lot of members rifles. Time will tell, regards, Mike
  5. Hi, are you sure ? I have been shooting a Creedmoor for a while. I bought mine before it was popular. I have not found that the case, regards, Mike
  6. Hi, Cherry Valley Massacre..... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cherry_Valley_massacre Mike
  7. Hi, here's the page from Powder Valley, https://www.powdervalleyinc.com/product-category/reloading-supplies/primers/?filter_brand=winchester&query_type_brand=or It shows both types of primers. The "Match" primers are about $5 more per thousand. Doesn't seem that much more but I don't see the point . regards, Mike
  8. Hi, that's not a Carbine Oiler, it's a late Garand oiler, regards, Mike
  9. Hi, I have been told that the Swedish Mauser clips fit in the Argentine 1891. Have you tried these ? They do have bumps on the side, regards, Mike
  10. Hi, I have this DVD and found it interesting/good. I don't know if there are any errors, regards, Mike https://www.amazon.com/Complete-Winchester-97-DVD-Lenny-Magill/dp/B0002DVAAE/ref=sr_1_2?dchild=1&keywords=complete+winchester+1897&qid=1586790920&sr=8-2
  11. Hi, I can't find an Alliant Promo or Red Dot load for the 44-40. I think Lumpy Gritz has some good advice. If your shells are sometimes hard to chamber in your revolver. I would check you resizing of your cases. You have a rifle and pistol so you should full length resize each case. I found this on Alliant Promo....... "www.shotgunworld.com/bbs/viewtopic.php?t=257182 Red dot is a canister powder, hence will throw the same from lot to lot (pretty much, but you still need to weigh your throws anyways when getting into a new jug). Promo is not a canister powder (not blended to be the same weight/volume from lot to lot), so every lot you need to check and adjust your bushing to throw what you need." I would go to a different powder, (Unique ? ) and use Lumpy's advice, Regards, Mike
  12. Hi Captain, I was told and saw an ad back in the day that they only made 500 of these. The ad was from CDNN and I often wondered if this was true or if they made 500 that week, year, etc , regards, Mike
  13. Hi, you can get a Colt Classic 1911 at Buds for $781 brand new except not Stainless. I think that's pretty cheap. Colt lists this as "Traditional" MSR at $799. If you look around you may beat Bud's price locally, regards, Mike https://www.colt.com/series/TRADITIONAL_SERIES
