    44 mag case not expanding?

    I believe I will. But for the current batch I’m putting a heavier crimp on the bullet. Just to eliminate that as a possibility. Then I load some with 6.8 g. (7.2 is max).

    44 mag case not expanding?

    I just ran some 44 mag rounds through my Rossi 92 lever gun. I used a 165 lead round nose projectile powered by 6.5 grains of Universal. It generates 10,350 psi. This is from the latest edition of the Lee Precision loading manual. Here's the problem. The cases are exceedingly blackened after...

    Finland gun owners?

    I should also mention that the Boer Wars was an excellent example of this. The Boers were 'n regtig burgerweermag (true citizen's army). They had no uniforms. They used their own horses, and their own rifles which as one British general observed, 'any man that comes within 700 yards of a Boer...

    Finland gun owners?

    Finland, Sweden, and Norway have strong hunting cultures. Which is one reason they do well at Biathlon. It is also demonstrably difficult to invade a country that has extreme climate and terrain combined with a citizen's army. Ask Napoleon and Hitler. Both Germany and France's armies were...

    I think our gun rights are about to come under heavy attack.

    Now that's what I call a glass half full. Believe me, this type of thinking makes life much more pleasant, and probably healthier.

    Knife or Gun?

    Russian creative high points: Ballet, the field hospital, corrective eye surgery, air ionization, the Khalaznikov. Low points: Communism, Russian Roulette, and this knife/gun combo mishigas.

    Just got my NRA ballot

    This is a good example of applied logic.

    I think our gun rights are about to come under heavy attack.

    I assume you refer to the morbidly obese scion whose family bought him a governorship.

    Rossi Rifle Decision

    Rossi peep sights

    That looks pretty easy. I might get one. If it doesn't work out out I can always remove it and re-install the safety.

    Rossi peep sights

    Interesting idea. I’d rather have a peep sight than a safety of suspect workability. I wonder how hard they are to install.

    Rossi Rifle Decision

    You needn't be apologetic about owning a Rossi rifle; particularly the lever guns. They are not fancy but they are workmanlike rifles for using.

    Rossi peep sights

    What peep sight can be mounted on the top of a Rossi 92 receiver? I mean without drilling and tapping.

    A very pleasant 44 mag round

    For a pistol, I usually load 200g jacketed bullets with 6.7g of Unique. Very mild and lotsa fun.

    A very pleasant 44 mag round

    I think I'm going to use Bear Creek moly-infused bullets.

    A very pleasant 44 mag round

    I found this data set in Lee's Modern Reloading Second Edition. A 165 grain lead RNFP bullet motivated by 6.5 grains of Universal powder in a 44 Remington Magnum case. I'm going to use it in a Rossi 92 chambered for 44 mag; the rifle weighs a little less than 6 pounds. Unless my math is bad...

    Reloading math

    I've been running some numbers for .44 remington magnum for a lever gun. I did several bullet weights using Universal. 165 gr, 185 gr, and 200 gr. The 185 gr bullet motivated by 6.4 grains of Universal would be less than 3 ft/lb of recoil engergy. The rifle's weight is 6.0 lbs. I've gotten...

    Is Marlin 1894 peep sight

    Ok, so I guess it's the same as the 336 (I have a Williams FP on it and love it). I think I'm going to take a look at an 1894 in 357.

    Is Marlin 1894 peep sight

    Did you have to drill and tap? And I'm wondering whether the new ones are already drilled and tapped.
