    Pure lead is good up to about 1000 FPS. Much faster and you get leading. I use it in my 1911
    and 44-40's.

    I hate dropping $35-$40 on a box of 20 rounds.I don't pay much more than that for .257 WM.

    Sounds like a broken hand spring or it could just be gummed up from years of residue.

    You don't NEED Barnes ammo for the 308. Just go to Wally World and get whatever is cheap. It
    will kill them just as dead, just as quick as the Barnes.

    JMO but I'd leave it like it is.

    Your dad does some very fine work indeed. Thanks for sharing.

    A piece of Chore Boy copper scrubbing pad wrapped around a bronze brush will make quick work of
    lead fouling. Just make sure it's copper and not copper plated stainless steel.

    I painted an Ithaca M-49 single shot with Krylon. It looked pretty good for several years. It
    was a major improvement over the scarred up factory finish.

    I don't like the way the action works in their single action revolvers. Having said that I
    wouldn't mind having another single six but I wont have another Ruger SA centerfire. I do like
    the MKII. I ha...
