    Wtb Eagle gunfighter grips for Ruger NMV

    When you get them, don't over tighten the screws. Doesn't take much torque to hold them on.

    New style CCI primers.

    I use standard primers, not magnums. Not sure what the mag 209s look like. Federal bought them out!?. Interesting. I didn't know that.

    New style CCI primers.

    To all Cowboys who have used CCI Shotgun 209 primers in the past and present, have you noticed the change in them. Older ones were copper and silver colored. The new ones are all silver colored. The reason I'm asking is because the new ones are extremely harder. Looking at the FP impact dent you can clearly see the difference. No FTF problems but they just seem hard. Check the pictures for comparison. These were both fired in the same 97 with the same load and you can clearly see the difference. No complaints here, just a little strange that they change the hardness of there primers for no apparent reason. S.G--

    Jimmy Spurs

    I use Jimmy Spurs pistols and yes they work like there's ball bearings in them. I like how Jimmy incorporates his little touch into them so there reconcilable to other shooters who know. Its the jeweling job and the two grooves he cuts into the cylinder that makes them stand out. Brilliant marketing! Like Phantom said. While hes got a good product, I've felt other Vaqueros done by some good gunsmiths and they feel great also.

    1911 Magazine Recommendation Wild Bunch

    I use to think Tripp Cobra mags were the cats meow until I seen what happens to well used Tripp mags. We got one shooter in our club and she shoots Wild Bunch frequently with Tripp mags. The spot welds on her mag bases were all breaking from lots of slamming when seating. Tripp tig welded the bases back on instead of full replacement. They look like hell but they wont break any more. I know anything can break but for the price of those things, I think Tripp should have done a full replacement.

  9. Paul. My load was given to me by Curly Cole years ago and Ive been loading it ever since. Its a near duplicate of the Winchester featherlights. 


    Gray WAA12L wad

    any 209 primer

    With a Mec loader its bushing #28. This bushing will throw 15.2 grains but its close

    Next time we meet, Ill give ya some loads to try and compare

    P.S. You can load AAs and STS hulls without readjusting anything.

      I forgot you just got a 366 loader. The bushing for 15.0 grns of Clays will be #429. Somehow the bushing chart for your loader is showing that the 429 bushing is the smallest for Clays powder. They got it listed for throwing 16 grns of Clays. Of course your going to have to weight that one.

    Keeping shiny brass shiny?

    I keep my brass sparkling clean by cleaning them again with SS pins. They get cleaned every time after firing. Yes I'm a stickler for clean brass. If they tarnish on me before I fire them then I'm not shooting enough.

    Advise on a 97

    I guess I lucked out on the two I bought. Haven't experienced any problems that you describe. I just double checked them again and all looks good. Thanks for that tip..
