Thanks! I am currently in a situation with no long ranges nearby. But next year I will be back to a good 200 yard commercial range, and will be able to mix my own to suit. I just can't make myself...

Experience with .44

Anyone familiar with this caliber NEF? Is it accurate enough for one-shot accuracy outside 150 yards?

Same genus, different species

There are almost as many Handi Rifle barrels as Thompson Contender. All break to breach load. I have .22 Hornet and .44 Magnum. That's about as extreme as it gets! :)

New England .44 Mag

I just got my hands on a Handi Rifle, single shot, in .44 Mag. What reputation for accuracy does this make have? Got one in .22 Hornet, also. It would seem to me that the solid locking platform could...

As long as we are on the surface of the Earth, using the weight of the bullet will do. 158 grains is 28 grains more than 130. Convert grains to a fraction of pounds, multiply it by the SQUARE of the...

Are you aware of any good starting loads for the .38/44 Outdoorsman? I now have my Dad's, as well as his reloading tools.

Force = mass x velocity squared. Add a little mass, you add a little force. Like 130 gr to 158. But double the velocity and you quadruple the force! 700 feet per second to 1400. Which is why they...

I will know more with more range time. Need an hour or two on a 200 yard range.

Yep, or very close to 150 yard sight. If I use the small notch for 50 yds, and the post rises to center, then between the top "horns" may be 150. Experimentation is in order.

This is what I was...

Buckhorn sight question

Recently returning to iron sights and a buckhorn on my lever gun, I got to wondering if the gap between the horns could be used as a rough range finder. Anyone done this?

Realistically, any hunting will be inside 100 yards. I got a good deal on PMC 180 solid flats, so I'm a bit heavy there. But I have reloaded .44 spec for years with 240 swc, and can continue there....

.44 Mag combo

I have finally put together my one-caliber combo, a Puma 92 lever in .44 Mag, and a Ruger New Super Blackhawk to match. I'm thinking that 180 grain bullets make more sense than 240 for the combo. Any...

686 cylinders

If you should decide to get rid of the magnum cylinder, let me know! I've misplaced mine, and want one back! With the 8" bbl, works well for nutria, coyotes, etc.
