  5. Marlin 1894 Phantom trigger users

    Yes sir your correct. I know now.Too bad I can't legally put one of those hammer extentions. The ones you use when you mount a scope on a Marlin.
  6. Marlin 1894 Phantom trigger users

    I put one on my 1894CB and it worked fine as designed. Because the trigger eliminated the stock trigger safety block, I somehow pulled the trigger and dropped the hammer when the bolt was almost fully open. It happened to me twice while shooting a stage and it locked the rifle up on me. I had no idea what was causing this until I figured it out. This wont happen with the lock in place obviously. Just something to keep in mind.
  7. Renewing Membership

    I too received an envelope from SASS HQ with a new membership card, decal and a friendly reminder that my membership is coming due. Instead of mailing anything back, I renewed on there web site. Very easy to do. S.G--
  8. Light 12 gauge reloads

    PM sent.
  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

    7/8 shot

    15.0 grains of Clays

    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.

  10. Links to facebook discussions on SASS topics

    SASS guns and AMMO is a good one with 2,225 members. Somethings not allowing me to paste the link here for some reason. Search for it on FB. Its a good one!
  11. S&B Primers all sizes - UPDATE 1st post

    They are most defiantly harder than Federals. Examining the primer hits under magnification they look like there a hardness of Winchesters. My results are like what Yusta B stated. My Jimmy Spur Vaqueros and lightened 73 have no problem setting them off. I would recommend them...
  12. Look what followed me home

    DANG IT! How come I cant find deals like that!! I paid double the price for mine "but" It was completely slicked up by Johnny Meadows. He does great work on those SKBs. Congrats on the great find!
  13. Ruger Front Site

    I think now would be a good time to have some nice solid brass sights put on. Mine were done by "The Gun Shop" out of Sapulpa Ok. Great people to work with. I could send you the info if you like.
  14. What bullet do you reload

    My rifle load also but uncoated. Feeds excellent at that lenght.
  15. My new Winchester 97

    Chop on there Cowboy! Save the cut off for a walking stick. FyI. The 32 inch barrel was a special order at the time. Doesn't make it any more valuable. Just hard to find them.
