It's been a while now and I've shot both rifles a lot. They are both very accurate with my
loads and would not hesitate to use them as a light deer rifle at close range. The .45 colt
throws a heavy bu...

Problem solved. I found an H&R huntsman in .45 cal with a 1-48 twist. All I need now is a 209
primer conversion. If I can't buy one I will make one. :)

I've been looking for standard "under 14,000" pressure loads for the .45 colt with heavy
bullets and not having much luck. I would like to try 300 grain,325 grain and 350 grain bullets
in my 1973 Uber...

examine your loads. Disassemble one of the cartridges and take a very close look at each
component. It's so...
Posted in thread: mixing ammo brands,no no or ok? on 10-09-2011 at 01:52 AM

mixing brands but if your just plinking cans then let the lead fly anyway you want.

My advise on what to buy now days is to buy a used single stage press like a RCBS Rock Chucker.
I would not buy a new press. Why! Because there are zillions of used presses out there that
people buy a...

30-30 Remchester I tip my hat to you. You just said something I don't think I could have put

Posted in thread: Who out there owns a M14 type rifle? on 10-09-2011 at 01:15 AM
I own a Springfield Armory M1a I purchased at a gun show. Before that I owned a Chinese
PolyTech M14. And I wish I had kept the Polly also. I saw no problems with it at all. People
say the bolts are s...
