Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Re: Forming and sizing Bertram 43 Beaumont brass

Very nice shooting. That's a lot of work though. Makes me happy I went with trimming and sizing 50-90 Sharps to get mine. Now I need to get my lazy butt out to the range and shoot some of them.

The person I know who is a master of 2400 is Tommy T. You could send him a PM and get a good answer. For this question, my clue meter is reading ZERO!

Re: 1874 Beaumont/ Vitali still shooting great! Range report...

The CH4D set I bought has an expander die in the set so that isn't an issue for me-fortunately. I know of at least one other person who necks down with .45 amp die and expands with the .458 die so this procedure shouldn't be any problem.

I don't know if you can just neck size with the Beaumont dies. I know of people who do that with other calibers so I presume that it can be done.

Re: 1874 Beaumont/ Vitali still shooting great! Range report...

First, KneverKnew, you are not MUD! Yes they are not cheap but I thought it was a worthwhile investment. Now to business! I cut down my 50-90 sharps with a cheap, Harbor Freight, mini chop saw. I then used Imperial sizing wax as a lube and sized the cases. After that, I trimmed them down to the 2.06...

Re: 1874 Beaumont/ Vitali still shooting great! Range report...

That looks very good. I, too, have formed my brass from 50-90 Sharps. I sprang for the CH4D dies to size them. I have 30 loaded with 55 grains of black powder with 400 grain .459 lead bullets. Waiting for a nice day in central hell (ohio) to take everything to range and see what I have. I'm hoping t...

Re: Seen at a local range

It was in fact a special order. A young man was there with the members of his wedding to do some shooting. This was his present to them. I should have asked where he got them made.

That is a very nice clean up. Well done sir! When you get your Trapdoor, you will wonder what took you so long to get your own!

Re: Browning has ceased producing Hi Power

It's a shame they quit making the Hi Power. I took mine to the range today and did very well for a change. Then again the on site gunsmith did point me in the right direction for bullet weight. I'm now using 115 grain instead of 148. Big difference in accuracy! Last 5 shots created 2 large holes in ...

Re: 1917 Eddystone barrel

My Eddystone has a Johnson Automatic barrel on it as well. Typical of US arms that have been through a refurb. It's a real mixmaster of Eddystone, Remington and Winchester parts. Having said all of that, it is very accurate at 100 yards for me and in the hands of a true marksman, will do even better.

Re: Browning has ceased producing Hi Power

Now that I have learned my Hi Power likes 115 grain bullets instead of the 147 grain bullets that I tried to feed it. It is my best shooting 9mm by far and while I wouldn't carry it, I have no problem keeping it as a home defense pistol. In any event, Citizen Swihart, how can a John Moses browning d...

Black Friday Shoot

As usual, Citizen Swihart held his Black Friday Shoot. Very popular with those of us that avoid the malls like plague on that day. This years' event was held at the Middletown range which is a very inviting place to shoot. Abundant sunshine and temps in the low 50's made for an ideal day with friend...
