  1. Thanks for the info..I'll be shopping around...prefer a press with 5 stations in case I use my taper crip die.
  2. Never owned a Dillon but am considering buying one for loading 38 special ammo (mostly wadcutter). Budget minded....is there a basic Dillon package (5 stage) that includes everything needed to start loading? press, dies, powder measure, primer feed etc? I do have a Lee LoadMaster now and have reloaded on/off for years now...have the misc like powder scales, tumbler etc. If so, have a Model number and possible source to purchase the unit? Thanks
  3. Thanks Guys...by accident found this source, ordered keepers and some other items. https://www.etsy.com/listing/532809949/set-of-4-police-security-guard-black?gpla=1&gao=1&utm_source=google&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=shopping_us_e-accessories-belts_and_suspenders-belts&utm_custom1=74692af8-83b9-44c5-91ba-ac98ce8fe48d&utm_content=go_1844702577_72372877360_346397612140_pla-353036817019_c__532809949&utm_custom2=1844702577&gclid=EAIaIQobChMI5Jrm6oHr6wIVx56zCh3ZSwpaEAQYAiABEgI7u_D_BwE&variation1=650987909&variation0=650987901
  4. Might wind up making a set....but would like to find a source where I can purchase belt keepers (4) for a 1-1/2" wide belt. Prefer nylon with Velcro. Plenty of 2" keepers out there but no 1-1/2".,
  5. If the Ivory soap floats...you have the right stuff.
  6. I'm sure most of you that planned to attend already know this...more info: https://www.gvshoot.com/index.php?page=actionpistol
  7. Got my loader out and loaded a few rounds of 148 grain wadcutters with 3.5 gr of W231. Real happy with the accuracy & basically just loaded to set up my Lee Loadmaster which worked flawlessly. (bought it over 20 years ago and never used it) Did buy an updated primer feeder and case slide block after visiting the Lee loaders group. Used a K Frame with 6" Clark barrel and will need to chronograph the rounds in the next couple of days. Firing from the barricade with barrel gripped against it...it felt like the recoil was more pronounced than I remember 25 years ago (
  8. Just sent a couple of PM's to see if anyone here might want to sell their Burris SpeedDot 5 MOA. I can locate them in 3 MOA but the 5 MOA is being held tight by their owners:-)
  9. I'm building an NRA Action Pistol (a revolver) and am very pleased with the UltraDot 30MM 4 MOA. Built my own sight base and wish I could give the old Burris 135 5 MOA a try because I have minimal ring space choice. The Burris and UltraDot have similar external dimensions.
  10. Sure would have liked to try the Burris SpeedDot 135 with 5 MOA dot...but they are no longer made? Haven't read any negative posts about the scope...wonder why they stopped producing them. Don't even see used ones for sale.
  11. I'm also looking for the "men's room" very often! Getting old is getting tuff!
  12. Didn't know here to post this: http://www.shootingusa.com/TV_SCHEDULE/tv_schedule.html
  13. FYI only I know this is an OLD POST....but wanted to mention that I recently had corrective lenses made to correct an astigmatism. Funny is that the "red dot" image in a less expensive Tasco scope was not as distorted as with the UltraDot 30mm 4 moa I bought ( and a Leupold red dot). Took the UltraDot to the eye exam and they allowed me to hold it in front of the test lenses. Now have a round dot!

  16. I shot PPC with a bunch of cops and squib loads were not uncommon:-)..."never" had a problem driving them out with my old trusty aluminum rod. You need to hit the rod with some FPS:-)
  17. I know this is an old post..but I always kept a piece of aluminum rod in my shooting bag. It was actually an old shotgun cleaning rod that was used a couple of times. The rod diameter was close to bore diameter so any potential bore damage was eliminated.
  18. Thanks for pointing that out...that does help.
  19. Recently ordered a rule book from the NRA and received the 1 January 2011, the NRA now has the January 2020 rule book listed. Anyone familiar with the changes between the two? (84 pages to go through if not) 2020 Rule Book link: http://rulebooks.nra.org/documents/pdf/compete/RuleBooks/Action/act-book.pdf
  20. Green Valley web site, their March and April activities are canceled: https://www.gvshoot.com/
  21. THANKS..just ordered them! Ordered the "last one" and the link still shows only one left.
  22. Thanks...their price shipped is $90 (can't locate any discount codes) Gunbroker has them for the N frame for about $67 shipped...significant price difference. Found a couple of sources for K frame round butt grips but the K frame square butt #10006 is a rare beast. I know the RB would work...but would rather get a set of the correct SB grips.
  23. Not easy locating a pair of the Hogue 10006 grips on the cheap. Amazon and Optics Planet have them but looking at couple of months delivery?
  24. Thanks Guys.....perfect looking Hogue grip!
