Major, many thanks for your kind thoughts. We both tested positive again this morning. Just down to a very mild sore throat and intermittent cough. Honey in water helps.

We are taken this one seriously and taking precautions.

Praying for all of you in the path of the storm. Use good sense and stay safe.
57 here today, supposed to hit 82. Goal for today is to tumble all my brass from CAC and load my primer tubes. Raising my coffee cup to y'all.

NOT GOOD not good, conditions turn for the worst...
Ian now as a CAT 3 on shore somewhere below Tampa, that puts Johnny McCrae - John Saffran and his wife
right in the thick of it, as they recover from Covid.
Please take an extra few moment and have good thoughts and prayers for them and all on west coast. 

l also will be looking at both barrels, as it travels up and then stalls over my area  :(
I went to bed last night thinking hoping the track was west of Central Florida.
But as I well know never speculate, expect the worst hope for the best.  ::)
the next 3 days will be unknown, but hellishly bad.

GOOD luck to all, see you on the back slide... :)  over and out !
The Winchester Model 1876 / Re: .348 to 50 95 ?

Primers - Large Rifle or Large Rifle Magnum for 1876 cartridges?
I'm asking this question as I am pretty well set up for Large Rifle Magnum primers but I don't have very many Large Rifle primers.
Thoughts?  My loads are black powder

standard Large Rifle are plenty good enough for blackpowder but if you have plenty of the magnums ? may as well use them - you wont break anything. If accuracy holds up its all good.
I've been using standard LR primers in my 45-60 loaded with AA5744 at what I would guess to be about 50% case fill. Ive had zero issues with it and my velocities over the chrony are very consistent.

I cant see why a mag primer would cause any issues

Evening all.

Warm one in the Missoula valley today, mid 70s. I spent my morning testing and retesting my latest invention. Unfortunately it’s nothing new, but it might be something the yuppies will buy (to use Del’s coined phrase), and I’m always happy to take money. ::) If you’re wondering, it’s a wax product.

Y’all keep dry and warm out there.

Zoot Shooters / Re: Period tactical shotgun
« Last post by Baltimore Ed on Yesterday at 07:44:59 PM »
I’ll carry this tactical Marlin at my clubs next shoot as we’re doing a 2 inch snub shoot where the MD adds a snub along with our double actions [for those enlightened shooters]. Of course the saa crowd will be able to shoot their archaic revolvers along with a snub. I do the gangster thing with pinstripes and fedora. And maybe a off the clock surprise for the shooters.
