Re: New .25 Rem ammo

It's converted 38-55 brass, but now I have a boatload of .25 Rem! I've taken on 3, count 'em 3, obscure calibers this year. I may need an intervention.

Re: Hunting in Lower Alabama

Looks like a successful hunt! Was this one taken with your .25? It *was* a successful hunt. :) I got a doe on opening day and this fellow three days later on the same stretch of road. She was 100lbs and he 180. Not too bad for opening week. I only just got the rest of the tools to do .25, so that w...

Re: new Rossi 92 .357 to match my Ruger SS .357

I picked up a Rossi .357 lever carbine recently from my local gun emporium of death. The gun was on the rack in the aisle and was listed as new and instead of a rear sight it had a picatinny rail fitted. The counter guy found the box but no rear sight so I got a wee price break on it. :) I had an ex...

Re: Model 8 stock removal.

Two methods that I can think of: Take a rubber mallet and tap, Not hit- tap!- the end of the stock comb right in front of the wrist. Gently.

Or, one could get a friend and one grab the receiver and the other the stock and play tug of war.

Thank you, gentlemen, and it was quite a shock, I can tell you, to see the old pogo stick on the wall.

Re: Buffalo arms 30 Rem for sale

And as to reloading, I now have everything I need to reload .30 Rem since my .30 Rem trim/form die came in. Midway has them as well as the die sets. I promised myself I'd only take up one weird caliber a year so I'll have to wait till next year to take up .35 Rem.

Hmmm, looks like they raised the price right before it sold out. $60 per box and $54 per if 5 or more bought. When I ordered, 10 days ago, it was $50 a box and $45 if 5 or more.
