I had trouble attaching pictures to the messages.  Therefore, here are the pictures I took of the International Contingent exercising with other NATO members....

I didn't get a picture of the Dress Uniform.

See ya Next Year.

Del, I've never met you but hope to some day.  That was quite an "adventure" you had.  And sure glad to hear of the big improvements!
Argh.... Tried answering on my phone. NO grease grooves!
Frontier Iron / Re: Shooting black powder in Uberti topbreaks

I make sure my revolvers have well cut forcing cones, use the shortest case I can use, (45 CS, 44 Russian) a full case of good 3f powder (Olde Eynesford or Swiss) and a bullet of this general design.

My lube is a mix of Beeswax and Olive oil.

I would make sure the cylinder has a proper black powder bevel on the front edge. (New production has none!)  I have swapped off or bought/sold my top breaks until all are now Navy Arms imports, which have the best bevel of all the importers observed. (IMHO) That does make them all 2006 or earlier.  This is a 5" Schofield, a 7" Schofield, and a 3rd Model Russian.

 In addition, the early 3rd Model Russians have a gas collar twice as long as all other Uberti top breaks, comes only in 44 Russian, and is the best performing of my Top Breaks with BP, though the 7" Schofield is almost as good. 

 The 5" likes 777 best.   I have found 777 to be a good performing powder in all my top breaks, increasing reliability in a more marginal gun, like the 5" Schofield.  I prefer real black for its milder corrosion properties, but the revolver tells me what it likes best.  Plenty of water is key with 777.

Jerry said people were asking about me, as an Update for those who don't know all that went on, I had plans on making it, or at least a day or so visit right up to early May.  On May 9th I woke up unable to move from the waste down but could wiggle my toes at least, but was in lever 8-9 pain, had made ER trips the two days before, the wife hauled me to the ER for Mother's Day, the next day the Ambulance hauled me in because I was having trouble walking, had an accident in the ER that day but they forgave me and didn't rub my nose in it. ::)  In case you don't know ER people have an odd sense of humor, spend enough time in them and you pick it up. ;D

Ambulance crew picked me up out of bed and hauled me in, they got a line in me and they put stuff in one arm and took stuff out of the other one.   They gave me a shot in the line that was 3 pain drugs and a muscle relaxer and I felt much better but couldn't move below the waste.  Decided it was a bad staph infection and swollen muscles were pushing hard on my siatic nerve.   Anyway they kept me for 9 days in which I walked less than a dozen steps and they told me I would likely walk again but let me know I might not.

They shipped me to Tabatha a rehab hospital for 35 days, all medicare would pay full on, they told me they hoped to have me walking with a cane by then but at least a walker.  I got rid of the walker by the 20th day and walked to the car on day 35.   Went to the gym today and did 30 minutes 1800 steps on a thing called a Nu Walker the recommended piece.  Am making supper nd my back and hips feel better than they have in years.  I'm sure most of you have seen me get up and do stuff and sit right back down, because of my back, well I am not doing that now. 

I want to come back so bad, 3rd year in a row I missed and this was the worse being in the hospital.
Similar but I grease grooves as they are moly coated.  I use them with any of the BP substitutes but not with BP without a grease cookie
Thanks. Do you grease the grooves with a lube/sizer or just rub some grease in them with your fingers?
