Re: 45 caliber sizes

I've been using the same powder load for 230 and 250gr bullets for .45 Colt loads for quite a while. I don't recall ever loading ACP with 250 gr. If I did, I'd probably shoot them in my ACP cylinder for the Blackhawk. I've gotten good results with 200 and 230 gr ACP loads in my 1911's and haven't b...

Re: 45 caliber sizes

I don't load 45 ACP for semi-automatic pistols, all those bullets there are for my revolvers. I have been loading 45 ACP for my Smith & Wesson Governor revolver which uses moon clips.

45 caliber sizes

I have a technical question concerning 45 caliber handguns, and the size of the bullets I reload. I am wondering what the consequences are of loading the below listed sized 45 caliber bullets in either a 45 ACP handgun or a 45 Long Colt revolver. Here are the three bullets I have and I am wondering ...

Re: Bullseye powder

I sort of like Bullseye powder, because it seems to have a wide range of loading options. Although, my primary go to powder is Winchester 231. W231 seems to burn clean and does a nice job. I load most everything with 231 including light Magnum loads. My go-to Magnum powder is w296 for those real ear...

Bullseye powder

Anybody in here used Bullseye powder for your handgun loading? If not what powder is your favorite? And why?

Re: First post of 2018, first since Christmas!

I purchased a S&W Governor. I had to send it back to Smith & Wesson because of light strikes resulting in Failure to fire. It's still at Smith & Wesson but anxious to get it back.

Ammo prices

Ammo prices seem to be coming down a little bit, especially when you find them on sale. I bought 10 boxes of Remington 9mm for $8.79 per box at Dunhams.
On another note, I purchased a Smith & Wesson 829 44 magnum this summer. Great shooting gun and love it.

Re: BUTTON RETAINING SCREW

I just used a eye glasses repair kit screwdriver for mine, it seemed to work well. What bothers me is that it appeared to be blue Loctite'd originally, and that's what I used to secure it back in this time. If it comes out again I am considering Super Glue to keep it in place. Other than this issue ...

BUTTON RETAINING SCREW

I happened upon a YouTube video describing a potential problem with the Ruger LCR. It showed an issue with the button retaining screw in that it backs out unknowingly through time. The shock of firing the revolver evidently loosens it to a point where it falls out and causes other parts too fall off...

Re: Lost my carry gun

:oops: One of my biggest fears of the situation was that kids would find the gun and end up hurting themselves. It is a summer carry gun that I always keep in a holster with four extra rounds in a pouch on the side of the holster. Every night going to bed I would think about it with great concern wh...

Lost my carry gun

I have a North American Arms 22 Magnum revolver, needless to say it is a diminutive gun. I was going to the range and went down to my safe to pack it up and take it but it was nowhere to be found. I search high and low in my two story house with a basement for several days. I must have looked in eve...

Re: Win 296 light load

I instead have loaded some lighter rounds with Winchester 231 as per Lyman reloading manual. They are all within the suggested range the book offers, but are at a slower FPS then the full loaded Winchester 296 rounds. I am not going to lower the Winchester 296, nor any other powder outside of what t...

Win 296 light load

I have been loading my 44 mag with Win 296 @23g (book says 22-24g).This is a hefty load with plenty of kick. I loaded 10 rounds ea @ 21g, 20g, 19g, 18g, and 17g, and enjoy the 17g load. This of course is below the book range, and I have heard some warnings about loading this way with 296. What is yo...

What new firearm/s have you bought lately?

I have to new guns this year, both revolvers, but that's pretty much where their similarity ends. The first one it was a Smith & Wesson Model 629 44 Magnum revolver which resides on the larger end of the spectrum in terms of size and Power, and I also purchased a North American Arms 22 magnum / ...
