  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.
  11. I wish they were open on Saturdays for pickups. Fortunately I've got good brothers-in-law that pick up orders for me.
  12. I'm surprised nobody mentioned having a matching pair of 1873 Colt Peacemakers, cowboy style!
  13. Picked up a couple of boxes of them this morning. The discount plus free shipping saved about $10 so I couldn't pass it up..
  14. Henry Repeating Arms TV on YouTube has a posting where they go through these new rifles and shotguns, as well as older rifles. Runs about 28 minutes overall.
  15. Thanks for the heads-up in the Winchester 22WMR. At $12.07/box it's a nice deal..
  16. Thanks for the heads-up.  I've got some American Eagle so I'll be sure to give it a try next time out.
  17. A couple of years ago I picked up some discounted CCI primers from the 1970's and they all went bang so I would buy/load/shoo them without hesitation.  As others have said, as long as you tell the buyer what they're buying, no problem.
  18. Picked up an SR22 with the 4.5" barrel at the Nashville gun show yesterday for $310.  Took it out to the farm for some plinking today and it was a blast.  It ran smooth with the Mexican CI ammo they gave me with the gun (100 rnds), and also ran Blazer and Golden Bullet flawlessly.  I'm going to have fun with this gun!
  19. I'm with the deprime and wet tumble crowd.  Much easier than cleaning the primer pockets one by one.
