  1. Past hour
  2. My wife and I just shot the NM State match with APP, Triple Seven and MZ (no Pyrodex!). Brass Cleaning: four rinses using hot tap water. Dry in sun. Firearms: wiped down with a mixture of rubbing alcohol, oil soap and tap water (no vinegar). Lubed with Ballistol when dry.
  3. I never said it was okay to supply inferior products. I only said it's okay to shoot them if they are not fully lubed. Besides if I purchase a box of 500 cast bullets and I come across say 1% of them (5 pcs) that either had no lube, or only 1 ring with lube and the other ring without, I'm not going to raise cane about that. What really irks me more though is when I get disfigured tips like what happens when you pour before the mold is heated properly. That doesn't happen to me often though.
  4. CC: You built these guns for me; I'll certainly follow your lead. LL
  5. What would you sell just the revolver for? I might be interested....
  6. I have it saved to my computer for quick reference. It is very helpful especially for new shooters trying to figure out the categories!
  7. I've shot black powder for years not only just for CAS. I recently asked about running bp in a winchester 92 and got a good bit of helpful info not just on that model but in general. here's the link to that post here on the wire. Everyone has their favorite method but Nate Kiowa Jones had a few tweeks to what I basically do.
  8. Funny how we like to use explosives to solve an issue!
  9. Thanks. No need to be "historical" I am recreating a fantasy gun from a song.
  10. My 45 Marlin is a "Cowboy Competition" model 1894
  11. Come on out for our final monthly of the year. This Saturday. Shooting starts at 10. Every one that has shot this year gets a card for every match to make the best poker hand. Winner gets free monthly shoots for a year next year. (Not including Final Showdown). Last monthly of the year, so we will be shooting 7 (SEVEN) stages, so bring enough ammo.
  12. I couldnt tell you historically but currently they make the 1894 in .45 colt
  13. Slix have a CAVEAT on the package. Remington # 10 ONLY. I run Remington # 10 on ALL my Pietta Cap Guns with Slix nipples.
  14. My sincere condolences Grumpy Old Man, It's never easy to lose our furry kids.
  15. Hi all. I don't know anything about Marlins, so I have no idea which model would be likely to be available in .45 Colt. As mentioned before, I am slowly obtaining the parts needed to create my own "Big Iron" that inspired the Marty Robbins song of the same name. That pistol featured a barrel made from a Marlin rifle that had been cut to 9-1/2 Inches. I figure the original started life in another caliber and was relined or something, but that getting one with the proper bore size would simplify things for me.
  16. Don't know, but I love my 45's. Price seems to be good. Free bump!
  17. Good points by Tyrel. I am also a fan of Windex with Vinegar (or generic version) and Ballistol. A new discovery I have tried is a couple of carbon eliminators offered by Cowboy Shooter's Supply( Italian and KG-1). I, too, agree on soapy water, hot when available, for brass. Little wind-shield washer fluid & water in container is good until home to rinse.
  18. Water does the work. Everything else is just artificial flavor, color and smell.
  19. You ad for the sale of your guns says you have Win 78's for sale. What is a Win 78?
