    45acp revolver

    Ok, the 625's work. I stand corrected.

    Pietta 1863 and conversion questions

    I did some research, it looks like #4 is answered, no issues. Had to ask as an 1858 I converted needed a modified bolt to work right. I guess #2 doesn't matter, the throats will be what they will be, but I do want to make sure if I were to get a Pietta pocket that the bore is not oversized as...

    Is Taurus a Good Brand for Revolvers

    I have the .327, which is basically the same as the 856 but in a higher powered chambering and having no timing issue. It must have been a bad run of the 856 a few years ago that are floating around. There may still be some in the pipeline, so what I would do is try to get the newest production...

    Is speer still playing catch up.

    They're barely doing machine changeovers for new calibers and are working a ton of overtime getting a nice check while the management are seeing numbers that make corporate happy. They're far from frustrated, dude.

    45acp revolver

    Only stuff you'll find that works for Auto Rim is extremely old Smiths and Colts and, actually, those are probably the ones worth going for as modern .45 ACP DA revolvers leave a lot to be desired. Charter is rife with poor QC, the S&W Governor shoots a .45 ACP down a .410 chamber and kills...

    H&R 5 shot .32 top breaks, do they all have this problem?

    The one I had and didn't buy would index to the proper spot, but the lockup I could grab the cylinder and move it out of alignment both clockwise and counterclockwise by about a tenth of a turn. Both hammer cocked and double action.

    Is speer still playing catch up.

    I'm honestly thru trying to get the industry to listen. All they want to do is make 9mm and .223. Fine, they can, but count me out. For all my hollow point needs I've gone to Berry's or Hornady. The only thing I'll buy from Speer is HBWC.

    H&R 5 shot .32 top breaks, do they all have this problem?

    You know, I could see the early ones have problems because they're relying on more to keep the lockup tight, yet the three that I have don't have any issues with lockup. The ones I'm looking at don't rely on the hand pushing against the stop, they have the modern slots and the one I handled and...

    Pietta 1863 and conversion questions

    1. What is the groove diameter of the bore? 2. What are the throat diameters of the .32 S&W conversion cylinders? 3. Can a .32 Long wadcutter be chambered in the conversion cylinder? 4. Being a 5 shot I assume there's no issues with the bolt notches not being deep enough like on 1858's, but...

    H&R 5 shot .32 top breaks, do they all have this problem?

    First off, this is not a discussion on what models are black powder or smokeless. Please refrain from focusing on that. I was interested in buying one recently and when I got it in hand the indexing was fine, but the cylinder had a ton of play when cocked. Looking on gunbroker I see another...

    Another .410 topic

    Actually, regarding the decapping and priming, could I use a Lee Load All press to do that for .410? Again, I would only use it for priming and decapping, nothing else.

    Another .410 topic

    Since I have to roll crimp the ends with buck loads the only thing I want to do on the press is resize, maybe decap with a custom super extra long decapping pin with me Lee universal decapper that I'll have to turn out on a lathe myself. Are there any off press shotgun priming tools? I don't...

    Is speer still playing catch up.

    I'd rather not have to call them and complain about their lack of production for certain bullets (been waiting years for their 100gr .30 Carbine "plinker" bullets to be made again) and I'm not happy they dropped the 250gr .45 lead bullets, but unfortunately the squeaky wheel gets the grease...

    .357 Mag - Using Lee Carbide FCD with non-cannelure bullets

    This would be a situation where the Lee collet crimper is worth considering https://www.midwayusa.com/product/101683339/?pid=240550

    Another .410 topic

    Been wanting to get into loading .410 for a while, but time hasn't been right, something likely to change in a few months. First off, I have no interest in slugs for .410, never had any. Years ago I had been interested in loading both bird and buck, but lately I've come to my senses and realize...

    410 reloading

    IDK, can a Lee Universal decapper work or is it too short?

    5.7x28 curiosity didn't kill the cat but the cat may have to file for bankruptcy

    Forgot about that, but yeah. If you're looking for a lightweight loadout a 5.7 Carbine and an M&P .22 Mag would be a fine way to go, but it depends on how well the .22 Mag pistol runs.

    32 Caliber Revolvers & reloading for them

    Yeah, I use all my Federal .327 for Trail Boss loads.

    5.7x28 curiosity didn't kill the cat but the cat may have to file for bankruptcy

    I mean, what's the going price for 50 rds of 5.56? Maybe 45 cents/rd? When you can run the same ammo in a pistol and a carbine (which is much lighter than an AR) and still have a decently effective range out to 300 yards, that's a decent combo. I'm still not sold on 5.7 yet, but IDK, maybe that...

    Using .45 GAP cases for top break Webleys?

    From the few places online I see selling once fired it's about .10/piece. Never bought used brass before, so if anyone knows websites that have good deals on used brass or if we have some discount codes for being THR members, lemme know!
