  1. Old School - the matches are held at the Ridgway RIfle Club, Ridgway, PA ... http://www.ridgwayrifleclub.com/
  2. Marty - then there's the opposite side of shooting ... I cast - reload & hand load for every caliber of firearm that I own including 22LR with black powder. Includes 22LR up to 50-70 and metrics. The last and about the only time I bought factory ammunition was 2 boxes of 303 British from Privi Partizan to pull the jacket bullets to reload them with lead cast bullets for a 1893 Styer Martini Mark III rifle with smokeless and black powders. Being retired, I find enjoyment doing this instead of buying factory ammo, the majority of which is not obtainable for retail sale because the Pb bullet caliber rounds are non existent
  3. Kaiser - would this kind of match interest you ... http://www.ridgwayrifleclub.com/VBR/VBR 2017 Schedule.pdf

  7. Jim - Thanks for the link - new vest ordered Passed the link onto all the fellas that I shoot trap with also
  8. Ruger Vaqueros, 45LC - let the picture speak for themselves. These are 2000 limited editions with 4 5/8" barrels. Probably close to 15,000 black powder reloads down the bores for SASS matches, no broken parts and still smooth as silk. The after market Gunfighter grips are now checkered ...

Drill holes on one side of of the spoon so the melt goes back into the pot * Paraffin lubes the mold pins and leaves no residue * Two tin cans: one to put the dross in and another to put the cut sprues in. Do not put the cut sprues back into the pot while casting The key to nice bullets is: Heat the mold (after break in for aluminum's) and the melt in the pot to a temperature so after a 5 second pour, the sprue puddle frosts in 5 seconds ,,, then cut the sprue with the sprue plate The 8-Phase Casting Cycle ... http://www.longrangebpcr.com/8Phases.htm I ladle pour and here are some tools of the 'trade' ...
  11. Ok Old Timers ... remember Miss Gray?
  12. ... you won't hear this circulated in the NJ Legislature or on any US News Medias! Australian Gun Law Update; Here's a thought to warm some of your hearts.... From: Ed Chenel, A police officer in Australia Hi Yanks, I thought you all would like to see the real figures from Down Under. It has now been 12 months since gun owners in Australia were forced by a new law to surrender 640,381 personal firearms to be destroyed by our own government, a program costing Australia taxpayers more than $500 million dollars. The first year results are now in: Australia-wide, homicides are up 6.2 percent, Australia-wide, assaults are up 9.6 percent; Australia-wide, armed robberies are up 44 percent (yes, 44 percent)! In the state of Victoria.....alone, homicides with firearms are now up 300 percent.(Note that while the law-abiding citizens turned them in, the criminals did not and criminals still possess their guns!) While figures over the previous 25 years showed a steady decrease in armed robbery with firearms, this has changed drastically upward in the past 12 months, since the criminals now are guaranteed that their prey is unarmed.There has also been a dramatic increase in break-ins and assaults of the elderly, while the resident is at home. Australian politicians are at a loss to explain how public safety has decreased, after such monumental effort and expense was expended in 'successfully ridding Australian society of guns....'
  13. An honest review of the Ruger SR1911 ... http://ezine.m1911.org/showthread.php?91-Ruger-SR1911-Review Mine is solely used for SASS Wild Bunch matches - normally 5 scenarios and 100 reloads Reloads are 200gr H&G-68 SWC. Crimp them tight and the correct COL to the handgun ... zero handgun complaints or hiccups shooting 3 - 5 clips in rapid succession for each scenario
