SCORRS / Re: .46 Rimfire cartridge box labels I fabricated.

Hey Pard, if .44 Henry was fired in the Remington .46 rf NMA, would the .44 case split?
Considering the soft copper rim fire Henry cases my guess is probably not. Remembering the trapdoors had issues with the early copper case over expanding and sticking into the chambers, one of the reasons for the heavy extraction spring. That’s why brass case was such a advancement they retract slightly after firing vs the early copper cases which did not causing sticker extraction. Considering the wide spread use of .44 Henry and the Necessities of having ammo in such a hostile environment, even less than ideal ammo.
The real question is would anyone have cared if their non reloadable case did split?
Gift ammo can be like Christmas morning (except for unknown reloads  ::))

I was given two boxes of 45ACP...
one is Federal Syntech 205 grain, the other Remington Ultimate Defense.
Not quite sure I'll shoot these any time soon  :-\

I also got two boxes of Fiocchi 32 ACP
and a box of Fiocchi 7.63 Mauser (think C96 pistol), These I will use save and reload.

In other news, todays visit to the friendly LGS, saw a WW2 era Remington 1911 slide on an Essex frame.
It had an aftermarket skeleton hammer, SS barrel, custom looking grip safety and an elongated and embellished slide lock.... 

Sadly, the slide had 4 holes drilled in the top for some sort of rail (not attached anymore)

That veiner looks good. For this purpose, a scalloped one might be too busy looking. BUT, it is a good excuse to get another BK stamp. ;D
Morning y'all.
Coffee and tea are hot.

That's a good deal, Major. I was given a few boxes of the those Law enforcement only rounds. The head stamps are WCC +P+ 84.

My mother was a skilled seamstress and made lots of her own clothes. In the forties, she used a Singer sewing machine with a foot treadle for power. Later on, she progressed to an electric model. Attached is a picture of her "Singer" scissors. I'm guessing they are close to 100 years old. I use them all the time and they cut much better than any other scissors l have.

That information about the 9th Cavalry and its Stabler cutoffs is something I had never heard before.

 I would be interested in learning more details.  Are you able to provide a source?
