The Darksider's Den / Re: Anybody make reloadable .46 rimfire cases?
« Last post by ndnchf on Today at 01:56:14 PM »
Today I made one 46 rimfire long from a 44 magnum case. This was just to see if I could do it and prove out the concept.

The CF primer pocket was filled with a brass plug, soldered in place. Then the offset .22 blank hole was drilled, reamed, then counter sunk for the rim. Then the out edge relieved to allow room for the firing pin to crush the blank.

It's not pretty, but I think it will work.
The Winchester Model 1873 / Miroku '73 Question
« Last post by Buffalo Creek Law Dog on Today at 01:52:22 PM »
I bought a Miruku .45 with a 20" bbl. and have a bunch of .45 Colt RNFP lead bullets loaded with 6.6 gr of Bullseye that I was using in a Marlin.  Is 6.6 gr of Bullseye to hot for a toggle link?  My next reloading episode will be with 200 gr RNFP lead bullets.

Thanks for your time
Mr. Cole I have a Spencer/F Brenneman shotgun that I inherited from my father-in-law. The problem I’m having is the roller that’s on the arm for the pump action has been broken up and is no longer around. I have made one out of a piece of brass held on by a screw I have welded to screw to the arm but it keeps breaking off. I guessing  welding just to the bottom of the screw inside the hole of the arm is not enough.
Any thoughts ?
When you look inside the shotgun in the back with the stock mounts on, you can see a groove or a slot that the runs a long the receiver for the arm that holds the roller. On the block there’s a groove that runs for the roller that guides it to to the shoeing switch. My thinking is these two groves should lineup. My thinking is if I would weld something on top of the lug that is on the bolt block the one that you were putting it with a screwdriver, would line them back up. I was just  wondering your thoughts on it.
Thanks Jim

Lifter depth on mine (to the bottom of the slot) is 1.010” as well.
Has anyone explored making new rimfire ammunition? I am not an engineer, or manufacturing guy, but small capacity projects might be feasible with recent developments. Drawing copper or brass alloys does not seem impossible to reproduce? Making it economically is obviously the trick.

From what I understand the 43 is kissin' cousin to the 44-77 Sharps. That would be an interesting cartridge/rifle to play with but the other things done to it (the idea of that scope on a RB makes me shudder - lol) present something of a problem. Since 43 Spanish isn't a cartridge you can run down to the gun shop and buy (even when gun shops had ammo) one wonders what the previous owner was thinking when he/she/it put that scope on. Curiouser and curiouser.

This is a used Super Blackhawk in very good condition.  It is the stainless model with a fluted cylinder and 5 1/2" barrel.  Comes with an El Paso Saddlery Tom Threepersons holster.  Asking $750 + $35 shipping or will trade for a Colt 2nd Generation 1851 Navy (C or F Series) in good condition.

I also don't live any where an NCOWS posse(wish I did) but I enjoy being a member and receiving a copy of The Shootist. This latest issue contained an article which describes some of the "fun" things a particular posse has done over the years. I like seeing what others are doing and we will use some of those ideas at our local(Quinton Mavericks) SASS club which fortunately still orients the matches to "safety and fun".
