  1. Ordered on Thursday and received on Saturday, Wow…….. Great Service Starline Brass.
  2. I agree 100%. I personally try my best to post pictures and results from our Memphis Gunslingers events. We have a FB page and I try to post upcoming matches to keep everyone informed. Find us, like us, come shoot with us.
  3. Had one of my Vaqueros skipping, sent it back to Ruger and got it back in a month. New cylinder was required.
  4. I’ve just started trying out the 45 Cowboy Special. After several test loads I’ve settled on 4.6 grains of Titegroup under a 160gn RNFP. It shoots great, little to no recoil and at this charge all the powder flakes burn up. I started at 4.0 but it was very dirty. I’m using 45 Colt dies with a 45 acp Taper Crimp, would prefer a Roll Crimp but using what I already have right now.
  5. One of my friends is looking at getting into Cowboy Action Shooting. He’s looking at a Liberty II, made in Turkey. It’s new in the box and is actually a great looking gun. Does anyone use one or know anything about them. The guy selling it is asking 500.
  6. I have a 510 and a 513 as my set of 38’s, one has the internal lock and one doesn’t, other than the hammer springs they are identical as far as I’m concerned.
  7. What your Die set up for loading these ? I have a Dillon 750 and looking to set up a die set for 45 Cowboy Special.
  8. I use W572, it’s easy to find right now and makes a great Skeet load using a Claybuster Wad and 16.0 grains of 572.
  9. My Lever gun they need to be 1.580” or less to cycle. Put a good crimp on them and don’t worry about the crimp groove.
  10. I like a 160gr with 5.4gn of Titegroup in my pistols, same powder charge with a 200gn in my rifle. Not the lightest but works for me.
  11. SASS Alias: Skullbone Willie SASS #: 111686 Where you are from: Bartlett, TN Memphis Gunslingers How long you’ve been Cowboy Action Shooting: Since 2022
  12. I used one for years traveling and shooting Skeet Tournaments. I put my gun in it and went to the club for some practice and it wouldn’t unlock. Drove to the Safe and Lock company in town, they couldn’t open it. I tried it every day and then one day it just unlocked when I tried it. I took the drawer out and opened the mechanism and a cotter pin had fell out. About 6 months later it failed to open again. Never trusted that safe again and removed it.
  13. Lots of different sounds, poof, bang, puff, bang, poof and I’ll ad that I weighed every powder charge…… I’ll try some 130’s tomorrow to how that goes.
