  1. Past hour
  2. Before he converted, his slave name was Bobby Joe, so he don't know no better.
  3. Another great option for the young'uns! Thanks Ruger.
  4. Yeah, and except on very few occasions, they got it done with rifle or pistols and never needed the scattergun. We use all three all the time, get what makes ya happy and works for you.
  5. The Arab yelled jihad. Maybe I saved everyone from terrorists.
  6. No proof what so ever. But I'm thinking why back when the handgun die sets were made with the assumption you were going to load cast lead bullets. I think in more modern times they have changed to assume you're going to load jacketed bullets of smaller diameter. I've opened up some sizing dies because they were sizing the bejeezes out of the case and leaving a pronounced waistline. The expander dies were too small also. Hard to widen them out.
  7. I read this and it was just -- Huh?? She is the county coroner and owns the funeral home. She buys a case of penicillin. I can't figger why a coroner or a mortician would need penicillin. Thoughts?
  8. Today
  9. This is screwy. A guy was at the loading table and it looked like his ammo was loaded with wadcutters. I made mention and he said no, bullets loaded backwards. Said it reduced case volume (I'm sure that it would) and that the bullet going out the muzzle backwards reduced recoil (I'm doubtful of that) because of the boattail effect. Looked like he crimped in lowest lube groove. I've shot with him a lot and never seen him load that way before or after. I wouldn't call him an expert at reloading.
  10. Yep them Schofield cases in the .45LC are a treat to use , luv them myself with a 160g bullet.
  11. So, as a follow-up to the recent thread about Dana Delany in a new program called *The Code*... Has anybody seen the show? And other than Ms Delany being in it, is it worth watching...?
  12. Sheesh, I dunno what Hornady has been up to recently. I have been loading 38 Special, 38-40, 44 Special, and 45 Schofield for years on my Lock & Load AP. with standard Hornady dies. There were no special 'cowboy' dies, just one set does all. For 45 Schofield I use the Hornady 45 Colt die set, with the seating/crimp die screwed down far enough for the shorter Schofield case. I can't even find most of those calibers on their website now.
  13. I've seen those things for sale in novelty / specialty catalogs. Never much cared how it was done. I have other things to keep me occupied.
  14. I can’t see Wayne or Eastwood wearing a shotgun belt either. Especially when it turns into a bra like so many do.
  15. If you want to go that route, 45 Schofields will fit just fine in a New Vaquero cylinder. Ruger got smart when they made the New Vaquero cylinder. If you look closely at the photo above you will see the area of the ratchet teeth is scalloped slightly, making more clearance for the rims. With the 'original model' Vaquero cylinder, shown in the photo below at the left, the ratchet teeth were cut from a cylindrical drum, and there was less clearance for the rims than in a New Vaquero, even though the New Vaquero cylinder is smaller in diameter. I had one chamber on my 'original model' Vaqueros that would not accept the wider rims of the Schofield round. Nominally .520 vs .512 for the 45 Colt rim. I had to file a little bit of clearance on that cylinder for the one chamber that would not accept the Schofield rim. So when they came out with the New Vaquero Ruger took a page out of Colt's book and scalloped the area around the rims, somewhat like the Colt cylinder on the right in the photo below.
