  1. Academy in Cool Springs has a boatload of Winchester 223/5.56 as of about an hour ago. Several varieties but I didn't take notes since i don't shoot it.
  2. I just checked Hobby Lobby's website and they have a set for $10. SKU 104869 in the art department. I may out and pick some up this week.
  3. I've got some that I'd sell at normal-type prices, but I'm in Franklin so that may be farther than you want to go. Let me know if you are interested.
  4. Powder seems to be less of an issue now. Primers are still hard to find or very expensive. I saw some CCI small pistol today at a local gun store for $163/1000. They can keep them for that.
  5. I just saw that there are a couple of options available at KY Gun Co. if you want to go with new.
  6. I've pushed some out on occasion and they worked fine when I fired them. A slooow steady stroke with the universal decapper works for me. That said, I don't do this for more than 1 or 2 now and then, couldn't imagine doing it for any volume of primers.
  7. Time to pull out the lead and casting pot.
  8. I've got a 1967 vintage 10/22, serial # 103xxx with the original Mannlicher stock. It will run BX-25 and other clone magazines but using anything but the 10-round mags feels like sacrilege with that rifle.
  9. Take a look at these adaptors that fit Mossbergs https://opsolmini-clip.com/ I saw Hickock use one in a recent video and it seemed to work well.
  10. I'm doing some loads to shoot out of a conversion cylinder in my 1851 Navy. The instructions for the cylinder are to use 38 Long Colt or 38 Special wad cutters. I've got a good bit of 38 LC brass and want to load 148 grain hollow base wadcutters to get better obturation/grip on the rifling. I haven't found any 38 LC load data for 148 grain wadcutters, but have the data for 38 special. The question is if it is safe to load the wadcutters in the 38 LC brass using the COL and powder charge listed for the 38 special loads. It seems to me that the space inside the case of the 38 LC with the bullet protruding 1/8 inch out of the case would be the same as in the 38 special case. The pressure listed in the Lee manual for the 38 special wadcutters is actually less than for the 150 grain round nose that I have been loading in the 38 LC brass so I think I'm safe there. I thought I'd bounce my logic off some experts before loading them. These are not hot loads by the way.
