USFA CSS / Long Hunter Values
« Last post by Rex Mahan on July 10, 2024, 10:08:04 AM »
Would yall say guns with the "LH" serial numbers are worth the same as normal production USFA?  I have seen that sometimes USFAs do not sell well with alternate serial numbers

I do something similar to my wildcated 1905 Winchester.  I take a 38 special and reduce the diameter of the rim, then bevel the back of the rim, similar to this brass.  This allows it to fit and operate with the existing extractor.

Some people do this with .357 Magnum brass to make .351 Self Loading.  .357 Maximum is a "better" parent case, but people certainly seem to be able to get the Magnum brass to work as long as they seat the bullet to a usable OAL.

You didn't mention an extractor groove being cut as well, so I'm assuming that wasn't done.  Some people do it when making .351 brass and some don't.

I think the rim would need to be turned down a tiny bit too.  I don't see any evidence of that on your brass.

The diameter of the case mouth before sizing may be a hint as to the brass's past life.  I know the .351 Self Loading uses a smaller bullet than the .357 Magnum.

The Rook angle is certainly interesting too.

 :) Well, since I was Asked  :P

I would see no problem shooting the Brass as shown.  I would also be want to refer to the above post from the esteemed Perfesser Marvelous.  All that beveling was done at the perimeter of the base and poses no pressure or stress issues.  Other than a little Weeble Wobble in the loading press, quite shootable.  Fire Away!!

Howdy cartridge historians,

The previous mentions of "Rook" rifles have gotten me thinking. What does a Rook taste like?

My guess is that they were modified to be used in a Rook rifle. Get a copy of Cartridges of the World and compare dimensions. I used to have a Jefferies 300 Rook and your brass looks like what I shot. We made the cases from 32 H&R mag brass.

The modern cases have a solid head. That is where al the pressure happens.
A trimmed, beveled, or thinned rim should have no bearing on the saftey of the brass, only
Possible theoretical xtraction issues.

I would not hesitate to shoot this as long as the case heads measure to spec and show no signs of
Overpressure or excessive sizing.
