  3. Ammunition and Reloading
    Hello all! I'm going to leave my usual post in Law and Politics forum and pose a question that I have long wished the time to ask: Is anyone on this forum into wildcat or custom reloading? Please let me know, as I have a few questions for you!
  4. Shotguns
    Dummy rounds are expensive so I took some spent rio royals and cut them just about at where the crimp is. I filled them with some small wood screws to give them weight and topped them off with epoxy. When it was dry I hit them with an orbital sander and tapered the edges. Then used a red sharpie...
  5. Ammunition and Reloading
    I had a piece of oak laying around so I decided to do something fun. It will hold 448 cases. I have the other side cut with the same number of holes just a smaller diameter for smaller diameter cases.

    I am thinking of learning how to do re loads for my 40 and 45 cal handguns. Can anyone recommend a good starter kit that is quality and will include all the basic stuff to get started? Thanks
  7. Ammunition and Reloading
    I can't find .40 bullets anywhere. The only ones I can find are lead. My Cabela's order of 500 plated has been backordered for a month. My question is, is there anything special that needs done when loading lead bullets if I ever go that route? What is this about "gas checks?" Is it just as...

    Anybody else experiencing slow loading of threads, just lagging before you can jump from one thread to another? It was fast when I first starting here a few weeks back but now it's sloooow.

    In my quest to get an extra factory mag for my new/old High Standard Victor, I was told NO SALE to NYS yesterday. I then sent them the Governor's Q&A on legal purchases PRIOR to April 15. He said he'd check, but reminded me that it would be illegal to use next year. On the surface, yes. But...
  11. Ammunition and Reloading
    I have a steyr m95 on its way from Arizona, I want to reload for this gun because this caliber is not cheap. I'm having problems finding any loading data though. Also what does the term blowback mean, I see it thrown around on a lot of reloading forums but I have no idea what it means thanks. -Rick
  12. Ammunition and Reloading
    I finished my first test batches. Overall I'm happy....except I had more than a few FTF. I am using rainier 115gr plated round nose and unique powder. I did batches with 4.0, 4.2 and 4.4 grains. They all fired my problem is feeding. OAL was 1.115 crimp was .378. Next test batches I will increase...

    If anyone has a quick answer it would be great. Don't feel like looking it up. Ok I'm just a little confused. I have heared from a few hunters I have run into that you can use your muzzle loader RIFLE as a shotgun in muzzle loading/bow season. I was under the impression you could only use...

  15. Ammunition and Reloading
    So I got this Marlin 1894/44Mag. from the gon center about 6 weeks ago. Went to the range with 6 different hand loads from 200 grain lead cowboy loads up to 300 grain jacketed full mag load. Well I can't get 1 group at all. As soon as I get 2 within 2-3 inches of each other the third ends up a...
  16. Shotguns
    I've heard of duck hunters floating a shell. Never heard it called ghost loading before. I wouldn't trust it to be reliable but thought it was interesting anyway. It means putting an extra shell on top of the elevator, behind the magazine to get one extra shell of capacity. YouTube - Ghost...
  17. Ammunition and Reloading
    I am considering hand loading defensive ammo... but it seems I've heard advice that it might work against me a little in a courtroom - "He created his own deadly ammunition to be sure he killed the (poor, underprivileged youth blah blah blah.)" One of the guns I'm interested in carrying is a CZ...
