  1. I only should reloads that I loaded myself, and I don't give my reloads to anyone else unless they're to be used in my guns. to many unknowns that can totally ruin your day.
  2. I belong to two cubs: Wartrace Regulators in Wartrace TN and Green River Gunslingers in Bowling Green, KY. I've only been able to hit one or maybe two shoots a month, mostly due to weather or personal obligations other places. The attendance seems to be slightly down at teh matches I attended, but some of them have been "iffy" weather wise.
  3. The website says applications will be available before the end of the year. I'm hoping to make it too. http://cowboy.okcgunclub.org/LR/Land Run 2022/October Schedule.html
  4. I believe the refrence to only reloading them once is when using Black Powder. The increased heat of Black Powder makes them brittle and crack much sooner than with smokeless. I only reload black powder, and I have a few AA hulls that I've reloaded two or three times, but they definitely get fouled and rough after one or two BP loadings, I now sort them after one BP loading and about half of them get tossed.
  5. My first year I shot Uberti 45 Colts that we slightly mismatched: one was 5.5" barrel new frame with wide front sight and rear sight slot, the other was a 7th Cavalry Old frame model with 7.5" barrel and narrow front sight blade. The feel and balance was slightly different and the narrow front side was a lot harder to see, especially when shooting black powder. I since bought another 5.5" barrel revolver that mechanically matches (though it visually is different in the grips) the other, and my revolver times have improved. That's probably more due to easier-to-see sights than the guns being "matched".
  6. I own both versions of Uberti revolvers. The hammer with the small hole on the back of the hammer is from the 4 click; the 3 click hammer looks solid. You'd think it would be the opposite, but it's not. My three click guns were made in 2017 and 2020 and they both have no hole in back of hammer. My 4 click model (Old Frame Model P) was made in 2019.
