The Darksider's Den / Re: Brass wet tumbling additive?
« Last post by Major 2 on Today at 05:19:25 PM »
Turtle Wax wash & shine is what I use, because I just happened to have it when ZIP Wax was suggested.
 SS pins water to cover, 1/4 tablespoon Lemon Shine, cap of Turtle Wax....I don't use any Dawn or other soap.
As for Lube, I use Hornady One Shot Case Lube, Easy Peezy and it works  :)
 I don't think it overkill lube wise, but other opinions may vary  :-\

Turns out my first go round with this revolver was disappointing. Couldn't reliably hit a 12" X 18" plate at 25 yards! Shooting a 250gr. bullet with 6.6grs of bullseye in .45Lc. They seemed to hit all over the place. I'm going back to black powder! ;D

Ordered a shoulder holster from El Paso  with some Fancy Dan carving on it.  :P
The Darksider's Den / Brass wet tumbling additive?
« Last post by Little Dalton on Today at 02:43:29 PM »
I’ve seen a few folks who wet tumble their BP-fouled brass recommend a “wash n wax” type additive that supposedly leaves a thin film on the brass that acts as a case lube among other things. I’m pretty happy with the results I’m getting wet tumbling with SS pins, Lemi-Shine, and Dawn, and I’m skeptical that anything with wax in it could retard the cleaning power of those chemicals. But I’m intrigued, and I wouldn’t mind being able to skip an extra case-lubing step with my .44-40s. Does anyone do this with good results, including brass that’s good and shiny (yeah, I’m one of those types- I like being able to see my brass on the ground easier)? Also, what is the product exactly so I can order some? Thanks in advance!
The Winchester Model 1873 / Re: Buttplate measurements?

Well I couldn't find it the first time, but I did this time.  Rifle (4 piece rod): 7 1/2 to 7 3/4" deep by 5/8 to 3/4" diameter. Midline is 1 9/16 to 1 3/4" below the top.  Carbine (3 piece rod): same size, midline 2 2/32 to 2 1/4" below the top of buttstock.

Perfect! THANK YOU!
Just try it?

Specifically, do the trigger and bolt screws fit?  How about the backstrap and trigger guard screws?

Several years ago, in one my weekly (or more frequent) visit to my friends FFL/LGS there was a
Denix Yellowboy.
I was told, it had belonged to a woman's late husband, and She was afraid of it thinking it real.
 She was told it was safe non-firing, but she wanted rid of it. The shop bought off her and I bought for $50

Hi Pappy, I am in Lee's Summit, but do not load 44 colt or Russian, but I think I know someone who does.   Let me ask around.

Ha Rev.  I didn't with our old dog.   He really never thought he was a dog, and we kind of treated him like he was human.    He lived to be a right grumpy 19 years old.   He was 9 lbs and at times thought he was 8 feet tall and made of steel.    Funny, as I took him with me when I bought supplies at the pet shop, as they had a treat bar you could fill a mixed bag from.   Those things he liked!   I bought one of those giant cow bones (it became a powder flask that has since been passed on in trade).  Had dog under one arm and laid the bone on the counter, it was longer than he was.    Kid at the counter asked me if I had another dog.   I replied no, just him.  He is ferocious.   kid thought I was crazy.   

Current dog is a female miniture australian labradoodle.  They are 45% lab, 45% poodle, and 10% spaniel, bred in Australia as a hypoallergenic service dog.  She is only 17 pounds, but the lab portion comes out in her love of fetch, carrying random things around in her mouth, and a HUGE INTEREST in my stash of rawhide, leather, antlers and bones for craft.   The parfleche items above are always kept in a rubbermade if not on my hips.
