    Loading 45/70

    After rereading my posts I can see where you might think that way. But when the muzzle goes up 16"-18" it's time to think about what's going on.

    I did 16gr of Unique. Set me back in the chair too. But like anything else I've loaded with Unique, it was dirty.

    Loading 45/70

    Has anyone here loaded 45/70? I'm trying, but my shoulder is giving out. I'm shooting a Marlin 1895. I'm loading star brass with Speer 300gr HP's, 55grs of Varget. According to Lyman's book top load for Varget is 63grs. I've got a 12" gong at 165 yards that I'm using for a target. I've got it set on two chains from a saw horse. When I hit it, it almost spins all the way around. The rifle has almost dislocated my shoulder. Even after I put a recoil pad on it. No signs of pressure, except my busted arm. Any suggestions?

    Remember about 10 years ago.... when

    Me too, that's why I don't have a boatload of it in the back of the safe. It costs a bundle of bucks to raise a family. But it's worth every penny. I can remember 7.62x39 cases 8"s deep on the rifle range. But this is just another form of gun control Uncle Sam put on us. If it's ain't there, you can't buy it.

    Easy to rack handguns?

    +1 on the M&P EZ. Bought my wife the Walther P380 after she tried it at the NRA show last year. Bought her an EZ after she tried it at a gun store, she liked it better.

    Wow! nice price. I wish I lived closer. The travel from here would eat up any savings I would have.

    Criminalizing Private Gun Sales

    Has anyone considered that Uncle Sam won't know if you are selling your guns without telling him exactly what you've got. I'm going to freely volunteer a list of what I've got, NOT!

    If you ain't reloading you're not shooting enough.

    YEP! There is so much to like about Tennessee and it's people that people are moving here in droves. The prices of land and homes are going to go up. But if you're some right wing radical, please stay home.

    Now, click your heels together three times and say "There's no place like home, there's no place like home."

    It happened in 1964...

    If I recall, the first ones came out at $1400 and a little bit. I remember when Ford came out with the Mustang. It was pretty much to combat the VW bug. It started out with a 6 cylinder engine, no radio, stick transmission, and it didn't even have a door on the glove box. If I remember right, it was the first unibody construction that entered the market. Only problem with that was it wasn't strong enough to put 4 high school football players in. OH! let me take that back. You could fit them in [barely], but you couldn't close the doors. Frame sagged too much. Later they came out with Mustangs with a 289cc engine in it. It was stronger than the 6 banger but not much. Then they came out with the real muscle cars, in [460] I think. With the right tires, you could almost get the front wheels off the ground. That is just before you snapped a rear axle or drive shaft. Ahh those were the days. That one pretty much kept up with dodges 426 heimie. [I know I didn't spell it right. What do you want from a 71 yo construction worker.]

  15. Not happy with gold dot, especially in my 380. Hole is too big for the guns to function 100%.
