  1. I don't think anyone makes these anymore. Few gunsmiths work on them. Many are ammo specific: OAL, bullet shape and/or grains.
  2. No notification yet. Hmmmmm. Anyone going to start a Who's Coming list soon?
  3. Go West


    I use Lee carbide 4 die sets that include the factory crimp die. They are the least expensive dies out there and produce quality ammo. I would ditto the comments about loaded cowboy ammo from those companies mentioned perhaps initially. The wife and I started with Remington 12 ga. game loads way back when and saved all the hulls. If you do buy some loaded cartridges, save your brass for later when you do reload. You'll have a bunch of research to do starting out. It's a fun hobby and there's something for everyone.
  4. I saw this truck a while back. Look at right corner of tail gate.
  5. Too many steps with wet tumbling for me. 1.5 hours dry tumbling with dead primers using paint thinner and Nu Finish car polish. Separate the media and it's ready to go in case feeder or storage containers.
  6. Rugers are a good choice and have a great warranty. Piettas are a very good Colt clone. Pietta sells models with and without a traditional hammer/firing pin and those with a transfer bar. I prefer the former. I think action jobs are more important for the rifle and shotgun, but people do have pistols tuned.
  7. Ruger will do warranty work free no matter if you are not the original owner. Pull out all non-stock parts before sending it in or you won't get them back. They will return the gun after fixing and may only cost shipping and a bit of waiting time. I had one pistol many years ago that over rotated. I sent it in and had it back within a couple of weeks. That gun is still running strong. It is certainly faster than I am at this point.
  8. I had several .38 cases with the cannelure that separated in my rifle. Got lucky with one and got it out myself. The other was removed by a local gunsmith as I had no case extractor. I threw out all of my cases with those grooves. No fun at a match.
  9. RIP Dawg. He will be missed.
  10. Use 2-3 feet of braided steel cable, then rope. Rope is more comfortable if it is a larger diameter. Chain is heavier than cable and can get hung up on targets.
  11. I think all 2024 entries ought to get a free PDF copy.
  12. 7.5 & 8 is in stock in Tucson for $59.99.
  13. Looks nice and time will tell how nice it is. I have a Henry and don't need another .22.
