    GAME WARDENS

    I never have any interaction with game wardens because I have not hunted or fished for several years. However a cousin of mine and his son-in-law had a unfortunate experience a few years ago here. They were hunting turkey on land belonging to my cousin. My cousin, in his seventies at the time...

    what's acceptable space over ball in revolver

    When I load my Remington with 25g of FFF powder, a felt wad and a ball, I have about 1/4" space left. I've shot it that way and it seems fine but it makes we wonder... what would be the maximum space before one should use some filler, or a second wad?

    I finally shot my "new" Remington revolver today

    The "improvements" that I thought about had to do with preventing fouling and jamming after several shots being fired. Since I only fired a few this first time out, that was not a concern. But when I disassembled the pistol, I found it not to be nearly as "dirty" as I expected. Now that it is...

    I finally shot my "new" Remington revolver today

    I've had the flu for the past few days but felt well enough today to try out the Remington for the first time. I'm pleased. I will need to get some #10 caps instead of the #11s I had on hand. Shooting offhand, with two hand hold, I can shoot good small groups all day long, even shaky, like I was...

    my first attempt at making paper cartridges

    I finally tried it. I made my mandrel from dimensions given on someone's video. I probably should have made the big end a few thousandths bigger. I made up several paper "cones" with cigarette papers then realized I had not made a block to stand them in. I proceeded anyway. After measuring and...

    improving my "new" '58 Remington?

    I've been reading up on Remingtons since I was fortunate enough to find my Pietta last week. I understand that one common modification done is to create grooves for lubrication on the spindle the cylinder revolves on. I'm reluctant to start filing on mine and certainly don't want to "cut" more...
