Carry Weapon #1

Carry Weapon #2

  1. Looking at a vintage double hammered, double triggered, double barrel JJ Weston (Belgium made) with Damascus barrels. Assuming the gunsmith gives the green light on safety, where's a source for period safe 2-1/2" shells? Not planning to shoot much, but I can't resist just once or twice
  2. I’m looking to get back into rifle reloading. I did the bulk pistol thing on a Dillon 550 when I was doing a lot of competitive shooting and just got sick of reloading. Once the word normalizes I plan to get a nicer single stage press to load rifle ammo. I’m really leaning heavily toward the Hornady Iron press but looking for some advice and recommendations. I would eventually get a trickle powder measure but would initially rely on manual powder dump. My main reason for the Hornady is to take advantage of the lock and load system.
  3. I wondered if anybody has had experience with this. I'm shooting out of a 2' barreled .357 Magnum. The load is a +p level .38 Spl. I think its the ahort barrel and soft lead. They shoot good out of a 6" gun.
  4. SGAmmo, LuckyGunner, Ammoman…..No new orders, no availability. Things are really getting stupid.
  5. My recent fruitless search for a pound of IMR4895 has led me to think about the future of reloading. It seems that fewer and fewer stores carry reloading supplies, and the ones that do are poorly stocked. I can order brass and bullets on the web, but hazmat fees make powder and primers a brick and mortar proposition. I guess we reloaders are a dying breed.
  6. HAs anyone got their FFL license to manufacturing ammo in Tennessee. I'm thinking of getting mine. Just wondering what steps for Tennessee. to do Federal doesn't seem to bad.
  7. If you are in need of some brass case, this is pretty decent ammo at an fair price. I've ordered from these folks several times in the past. $230 shipped for case of 400, no tax. Its run well for me in AR's and AK's chambered for it, I'd call it on the low end of NATO charge window with my M1A short stroking a handful of times as it got dirty. https://www.armsunlimited.com/Magtech-CBC-762x51-M80-NATO-Ammo-147-Grain-FMJ-p/762a-fmj-case.htm
  8. If anyone is needing 9mm ammo I just left Shoot Point Blank in Knoxville and they had maybe 100 or so 1000 round cases of Magtech and CCI/Blazer. $219,99. Not a great price but if you were caught with your mag out and didn't prepare it is there. It won't last the day I am sure.
  9. Has anyone had any issues with Winchester White Box 9mm 124 gr NATO ammunition having light primer strikes? My SIG P-365 has had 8 light primer strikes in 450-500 rounds. The fellow I called from SIG said I was using cheap ammo and they couldn't help me. I had purchased 1000 rounds of this WWB and none of my other 9mm had any problem with it. I have never had a light primer strike with WWB but I did switch to Federal ammo and after 200 rounds have not had any light primer strikes (one failure to reset). Has there been any issues with WWB ammo that could support SIGs comments (FYI, SIG's customer service was terrible. The guy actually said "8 failures out of 500? That's not bad." He never even asked me for the serial number, just refused to help. I wrote SIG a letter and they have never bothered to respond)
  10. Looking for 5-10 rounds of 30 Rimfire to shoot the pepperbox and to have some for $#!+$ and giggles. I know it might be easier to ask for a unicorn, but if you have some, let me know. Closer to Nashville the better.
  11. What I'm really looking for is a 158 gr. hp that will expand at .38 +p levels. I don't cast, so it'll be something I can buy. I've tried Hornady 158 gr. swchp and they just ain't got it. Shoot good though. Thanks
  12. I’m looking for some .45 Colt range ammo. I saw this stuff that I can get locally at Sportsman Warehouse for $30/box of 50??? https://www.sportsmans.com/shooting-gear-gun-supplies/ammunition-ammo-for-hunting-shooting-sports/handgun-ammo-hunting-shooting-sports/grizzly-cartridge-45-long-colt-250gr-rnfp-cowboy-handgun-ammo-50-rounds/p/1528762
  13. What flavor ammo do you guys recommend for practice ammo for a 9 MM pistol? I plan to purchase some(2 to 3 thousand rounds) before the election. Might get scarce again. I have been purchasing Win White box 115 gr Rn from Wal Mart, but they are selling out and not being replaced. Going to order from internet company, S G Ammo.
  14. Never owned a .380; never shot one. Have read lots of info on both sides of the debate that the .380 is or is not a good round for self-defense. I know that many of you here carry a .380, so please educate me about a caliber I know nothing about. Thank you for your feedback!
  15. 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.
  16. I was wondering if anyone has used .380+p ammo. I know most modern firearms say + p is ok for occasional use if it meets saami specs. Since there is no .380 +P specs, there is none saami approved. However I know of two companies making .380 + P ammo, Buffalo Bore and Underwood Ammo.Just curious if anyone has tried it in their .380 pistols.
  17. We have guns, but many don’t have a simple BB or pellet gun. They can be useful for persuading critters off your property, training new shooter, or just plinking cans. I like it for setting my sights in the garage before i go shooting. If you own a 22, you can have both with Aguila Colibri 420fps ammo. I made a video to show the primer only round (no gunpowder) that has a simple pellet tip. Standard bb guns shoot 390 to 590 fps. Pellet guns shoot around 720 fps. No gunpowder means not a firearm .
  18. So my indoor reloading location isn't ready yet, it's going to be a while. My Daughter's only a freshman in HS, so at least a couple years before she moves out. We have a shed outside, with a sturdy workbench I could mount my press to permanently (Rockchucker single stage). If I kept the powder, primers, etc. indoors, and left the brass, bullets, dies, etc. outside (in a sealed container), would that be a suitable reloading location? I realize it's not ideal, but right now the press is attached to a board I clamp to the kitchen table.... and hardly ever do so as a result. I'm just wondering what negative effects the temperature fluctuations and humidity might have? The shed is vented to outside air, so will equalize with the ambient conditions. Would be interested in hearing your thoughts. Thanks.
  19. What make a 22 dirty? The type of power, the way it's fired > rim instead of center? My 22 rifle (single, bolt) doesn't seem to get any "dirtier" than my 9mm handgun, with the same amount of rounds fired. ===== In my youth (20's I'm 69 now) I don't remember 22 being dirty.
  20. I’m interested in picking up some tracer rounds and I’ve been watching this video which has given me some questions. First, do you think something as small as a 22LR would be visible in overcast light with it being such a small round? Second, with these cartridges already being dirty do you think this will cause even more nastiness in the bore? Third, these are the most unreliable cartridges as it is, would tracers make them any more unreliable?
  21. You probably saw a couple of months ago where Walmart announced they wouldn't be selling pistol ammunition. I had been watching and while there had been some markdowns there wasn't any price that couldn't be beat with bulk buying and in particular with Black Friday Specials and rebates happening. That changed as it has now dropped to 50% off today, or at least it did at the Ft. Henry Drive Kingsport location. I was actually alerted to it by the clerk as I came up to check on prices. It was it won't last long if all the sporting goods clerks are that proactive in letting folks know, but you may be able to snag a deal or too. I couldn't pass up 9mm Rem UMC 250 rd mega packs for $25. It was also a good excuse to buy some premium self defense ammo at a great price. The earlier discounts had thinned some of the variety down, but it seemed that every common caliber still had something on the shelf. I don't know if this is system wide or just a single store, but its worth checking if you need more ammo.
  22. There is no reason I can see why 380 ammo is roughly twice the price of 9mm. That is all.
  23. I've been reloading for 5 years or so and now I'm thinking about getting in to casting. The main reason is to learn how and have that skill if needed. I've been to some websites like castboolits.com but I'm also looking for recommendations for videos or books that would help me learn. I appreciate any advice you can give. Thanks
  24. I've got a problem with my new [to me] hi cap 45. I'm hoping someone with more experience with that caliber can help out. It's nose diving 3-4 times with each mag. I'm using 230 gr Montana Gold JHPs @ 1.225oal and 5gr solo 1000. I've only got .090 left before I run out of flat on the mouth of the case, so I can't go much shorter. Anybody got any suggestions?
