That's a fine lineup. I take it that the 140's are the ones on the far right. What are the others?

Thanks. They all look good. That heeled seating crimp is cool.

Wow, hard to believe the project started over a year ago.  Pretty much still on hold, I guess, because of COVID.  I work part time at a gun shop, and heard from a distributor that Remington ammo is producing only at 20% capacity since it started getting bad.

Noit sure where it goes from here.  Have not heard back from Jeff Hoffman at Black hills for some time.  Still, I found hsoft hollow base wadcutters work about as well as heeled bullets.  Using my .38s at the next match I do to see how the tighter crimp and 3.4 grains of TB work.

Thanks for the update. I wondered how it was going. It's good that you found some soft lead bullets that work. Looking forward to hearing your report on those after the next match.

 :)  Well . . Considering  ;)

Considering the original purpose of this thread, the following will probably be considered blasphemous.  However, in contribution, I do posses TWO EMF Capt. Schaeffer replicants.  4 inch barrels.  Not long after I received mine, I discovered Kenny Howell had released some swell Stainless conversion cylinders that looked absolutely the Biz for the Schaeffer. 

They are absolutely the Biz for the Schaeffer.  I shoot them with 38Spl cases and 148Gr hollow base wadcutters.  More than adequate accuracy for CAS.  Haven't bothered to shoot them on the Pizza Box yet as I haven't missed a CAS target with them.  No need.  HBWC work a treat, yes they do.

Hide and Watch.

PS:  I don't think anyone is back to full production at this point in Covid Time.

Mike, those Capt. Schaeffers of yours are spectacular. Even more so, knowing that they perform as good as they look. :D
