    Remington gun club shot

    After you get your reloaders set up post a question for low-recoil load recipes. There are a number of loads that are quite pleasant to shoot.

    Praise for BP shooter

    Make sure you start the match with well-lubricated barrels. I doesn't matter what you lube with. I've used Rem-oil, spray cooking oil and WD-40. With these lubricants plastic doesn't stick well to the barrels. Shoot a clean, unlubricated barrel and the plastic adheres too well. I now use the windex and paper towel method but once used hot water for cleaning. These methods both work. but windex is handier on the road where hot water may be unavailable I toss shotgun shells after using real black powder or the subs. I get plenty of once-fired hulls and don't need to risk bad crimps by reloading after using the smokey stuff.

    I agree that the 1 1/8 oz gun club shells have too much recoil for CAS. I'm glad 1 oz loads are sold. I bought several cases from Brownells a few years ago and am still shooting them up.

    Remington gun club shot

    I'm shooting their 1 oz load and like them. The hulls get reloaded with black powder. I never seem to run out of once-fired hulls.

    What pistol do you think isn't up to snuff....

    Revolvers with extremely long barrels can slow your draw and reholstering - affecting your stage time. That said, if you want a buntline buy one and shoot it in long range revolver side matches. Me - I shoot Rugers including out-of-production Ruger Old Armys. I now shoot 38 Specials as my aging hands can no longer stand shooting a multi-day match with my beloved .44s.

    Winchester 73

    I had an action job on my Miroku '73 that reduced the force required to depress that spring. I no longer have this problem but did before the action job.

    .357 Long Range

    I have a small quantity of 2400 got from my late father's estate. I'll give it a try.

    .357 Long Range

    I have some flyers without gas checks. I do use W296/H-110 like OLG suggests. I'll be shooting these out to ~300 yards at our state match on Friday. I'm using LaserCast bullets for this event.

    EOT Stages/Scenarios

    I still have a hardcopy laying in my van. Send me your snail mail address via a private message and its yours. (I waddied this year and did not shoot the match. My copy is not marked up with stage notes.)

    Packaging/shipping a rifle

    I've seen fluorescent tube boxes used as outer boxes. They have an advantage that the printing on the outside does not identify the contents as firearms.

    Got KONA?

    Roasted coffee beans pass the inspection. I bring as much of it back as I can every trip to the islands. Costco has the best prices on local beans.

    BP load advice?

    Ballistol is a lube compatible with black powder. Use old STS hulls that you are prepared to toss after loading with black powder. The crimps may be very damaged after firing with black powder. I agree you should shoot heavier bullets than 105s. Test your revolvers before shooting at a monthly. You need to know how many stages they will run without binding. Best not to learn that while the timer is running.

    A fully tricked out match rifle?

    32-20 cases may take less powder and cheaper bullets. However, once-fired 38 Special cases are much less expensive to lose in the weeds and under props. I lose some about every match. I've bought quite a few once-fired, 38 Special cases recently for about the cost of a live primer for each case. For each 38 Special case I lose I am only out about three cents. New 32-20 cases cost about twenty cents each. 38 Special cases are good for BP too as the smoke standard is based on them.

    Stone Colder

    125 grain flat point bullets are a common choice for CAS. However, you will find many 158 grain lead bullets for sale. They are heavier loads than most shoot. I have no brand preferences as I reload my own. I've been given boxes of Black Hills ammo and Ten-X ammo as door prizes at major shoots and have been pleased with those brands.
