Spencer Shooting Society / Re: Marcot's Spencer Book on eBay
« Last post by Coal Creek Griff on Today at 01:54:42 PM »
Here's another copy on ebay. It's the same situation as before: I am not the seller, I don't know the seller and I can't vouch for the seller. I'm just passing on the information in case someone is interested.

Note the damage to this book. The seller is claiming that his dog chewed on it, which looks about right. That might keep the cost down for a book that can be somewhat expensive to buy.

OK up date on things, Thursday I met with the neurosurgeon and we went over MRI's as I knew already I still have a small pocket of something down around where the sciatic nerve comes out, maybe infection, maybe some sort of damage caused a build up.   He sent me to get x-rays standing, bending over and bending backward to see if they were still properly attached.  Went to his office and we looked them over, good shape on that.  OK the plan is to go in and remove any infection and debris and free up the nerve, simple scope work, actually out patient if no surprises.  If things things go good my back should feel better than it has in over 20 years.  We do have to run the plan by heart Dr next week but we see no problems there. 

First date available was Oct 4 second Oct 23, I took the 23rd because on the 4th either Gopher Grease or Wymore Wrangle will pick me up or maybe on the 3rd, if the 3rd I will sleep on GG's coach, headed early morning on the 4th to cook for a home school group at RCS.  My buddy Norton may bring his wagon from OK< still up in the air.  If he comes they'll get me on the 4th if not then the 3rd and I will sit on a chair and point at what we need and it will be loaded.  IV people have said if still on picc line on the 3rd they will remove pump and cap the bag and hook back up on the 5th.  Neurosurgeon who has been on this since that day they carried me out in May and infectous disease people agree the extra 2 weeks will not be a big deal since I am no longer in danger of dieing from it, a mental health day like that before the winter sets in pretty much trapping me inside is worth waiting the extra 2 weeks if I'm willing.  I had to cancel my gathering last weekend due to myself and someone else's health problems and the price of gas.

Am working on taking a big step that could make me money but if it don't work will only cost me a few dollars.  Been doing a little research and if I post my cooking documents as a forward from that goup of mine I can count the people that opened them and read them.   Very interesting because the simpler ones get the most hits sometimes but not always.  The one that surprised me is the one I posted on 3 groups Thursdqay a little bit before noon, baked mac and cheese in a dutch oven, at noon yesterday it had 1100 opened it up and read it or at least looked at the picture. m Doing some proof reading and hope by next weekend to have several up, not going to saturate at first.   Cost it only 20 cents to put it up for down load, one time fee on each .  They take only 5% and pay when they sell each one, can use bank account, Pay Pal or reloadable Visa, the way I'm going to go, wife said I can have a $25 dollars to see if it works, I'll just skip the cashews and I have plenty of coffee yet so will not have to dig in to other stuff.  Maybe I'll play sick and let her go to Costco by herself. ;D   We will see, I'm planning on $5 one each recipe document less than a lot of recipe stuff but sometimes it's best to sell more for less money because the bottom line looks better.  we will see.

Been looking for a 20" Rossi 92 in .357 for a bit. Found one yesterday and traded for it. Been wanting one for my g'nephew to learn with, they are heavy enough that recoil from 38s is like a 22, and light enough for an 11 year old to handle well. These things have been like hen's teeth to find! This one even has a decent looking stock finish on it. Pics later!

Looking good Major! Well, shot decently yesterday, temps were in the upper 80s and we had a breeze, so not too bad. Today, well, that's another story. We will start at 2pm and it is supposed to hit 97-98 today. Taking along a cooler with Gatorades in it! Picked up a little Rossi 92 yesterday, been looking for one for a while for my g'nieces and g'nephew to learn on.
The Winchester Model 1876 / Re: .348 to 50 95 ?

Yep, I went to 50 alaskan. Easy to find and not much modification.

The Powder Room - CAS reloading / Re: No Trail Boss, what's close?
« Last post by Froogal on Today at 08:28:18 AM »
For what it's worth, 9 grains of 4227 under a 158 grain lead bullet in .38 special seems to be just as pleasant to shoot as 4 grains of TrailBoss, and might be a tad more accurate.

Can these be fire formed? Procedure? I have went 40 years without having to fire form, I could use some guidance. :-\
Never mind, figured it out for myself.

Why not use 50 alsakan as the base case ?
Im a bit of a scrooge I used expander rods to make 45/75 instead of fire form

348 to 375 annealed here
375 to 410
405 to 458 annealed here before FL size. 

I make em out of  grade 5 HT bolts put a long slow taper on the business end and polish them shiny shiny shiny!!!
The Winchester Model 1876 / Re: Split cases after last day at the range
« Last post by greyhawk on Today at 07:56:23 AM »
You may be right, I haven't reloaded this cartridge in years.  The fired cases ejected normally.  They were bulged out pretty good though.  Maybe my rifle's chamber is a wee bit worn and larger than standard.

maybe its just my eyes but the shiny case looks to be swelled more at the front end just beneath the shoulder than the main part of the body ?? My 348 reformed brass did that also - it took several reloads of black to get the body diameter out to the chamber size on the rear half of the case body (I found later that heavier boolits got it done a bit quicker) once expanded mine have a distinct swelling ahead of the solid head (enough to annoy me some lookin at them) -- my cases are not lopsided, I have not reamed the case necks and with fat boolits have almost zero clearance neck to chamber - enough that the case stands centered in the chamber for firing - maybe the Uberti is a little tight up front? works good though .
