my local shop/gunsmith has done all of them and they are about that weight, do not have a scale to check. They all shoot fine for me

You need one to replace your 442. Also, you need to start using the security system. Just pull out the key and unlock the revolver when you need to use it.
looks like a real help to the BG, keep the4 42, I do

[quote="Bullseye"]Unfortunately I could not delve into the forum database code and restore Greener's post count and the joining date. I only know a little about coding and php is not my forte.

good for you Greener, you have been around here for a long time. I personally do not worry about sight on an SD gun, and I do not target shoot pistols, they are strictly to protect my butt. Got through shooting a 25 on skeet some years ago and a guy said, your front sight is missing, I do not see th...

I noticed you have to apply to get a price. Bet it's a bit more than my DPMS Oracle.

I have the CMMG kit. Some fall off in accuracy but it works well. Simply a bolt replacement with a magazine. http://www.cmmginc.com/category_s/1851.htm I just bought a 15-22 a few years ago when the black gun urge hit me https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-p2Fcu78bPZY/TXVanE0CGAI/AAAAAAAACFw/v2q8h2S...

I think it's more prone to static electricity too, do to it's fluffiness. It bridges similarly to a large flake powder too. My shoot partner seams to have trouble when the loads drop below 4-5 gr. Above that sounds about right, 5 gains and up would not be a problem. I was using 2.3, the ones with p...

I always keep the powder measure over half full to prevent issues like that with powder drops, but I don't use Trail Boss so I cannot attest that technique would work with it. I found when the progressive loader's powder hopper starts to drop below half full the drops can get pretty inconsistent wi...

Good to see you're still reading the board BAOM. How did you fare with all the rain the other day? What do you think is going on with those .38 cal bullet loads? Too light of a load maybe? R, Bullseye The powder jams because of its shape and in the small cavity of the powder measure some time you g...

The real problem with light loads of TrailBoss is primarily due to it's shape, a bunch of tiny Cheerios or donuts. When loaded in a small cavity in a ponder measure, depending how it lies, it can have void that will reduce your powder by 50% or more, even to damn near none. My friend and I have been...
