    Gun cart rules

    Well there it is. So many projects but I keep walking past the humble cart pieces waiting there in the shop, thinking, " I need to get off my Aft and do it." So many ideas but this needs to be a K.I.S.S. project. Will do, Yul!

    Gun cart rules

    Nice topic! I knew there wasn't written rules but see common sense is required. I'm cobbling together a minimal cart from bits and pieces. Keeping small for 2 long guns in case I ever get that cool one wheel motorcycle trailer that leans with the bike! Not huge so need to be smart on my design. Really should finish it, I have all the bits now. Good discussion!
  3. Thank you! Pleasure doing business and this is a good 2 smile deal. Looing forward to showing up in this coat!

  4. Hi Raincrow,

     

         If your money is tight, consider this.  Look for a Dillon press on EBay.

     

         Dillon will send you missing parts for your machine no matter where you got it.

     

         My brother-in-law did this.  He would by Dillon presses, send for the parts if any were missing, and Dillon would send the parts to him.

     

          He found some really nice presses, hardly used.  He never has to change dies; he has a machine for every caliber he shoots.  This is just a thought if your green is lean. 

     

          If you buy a Dillon; it will come set-up for the caliber of your choice. It will make rounds right out of the box with a few minor adjustments by you.  It is not hard and after a year, you will be helping other people get started in reloading.

     

          Dillon lists the price of their Square Deal B, in their catalog, from around $400 but if you buy one, you should buy the "strong mount" for it which is an additional cost.  Also, the discharge bin,  spare parts kit, low primer sensor, and low powder sensor all or are additional cost but well worth it.  $400 is just the base price.  I spent the money but have been happy for a decade.

     

          Another thing to think about is this:  If you load .357, you might want to buy a little stick-on sewing machine light or get a magnet base bore light so you can see the powder in those tall cases.  It's good to see there's powder in there so the bullet comes out. :P

     

          I use Trail Boss powder which goes through the press flawlessly, it's "idiot proof",  but it's expensive. If I didn't use Trail Boss, I would use Clay's.  

         

          Let me know when you want the recipe for Prairie Dawg's Lite 12 gauge shotgun shells!

     

          All the best,

      Thanks, the square deal B is looking like the best choice or me. Green is lean so yes will e looking for something on line if it comes up while I save up.

  5. Hey Pards, mighty grateful I found my way to this sport. Appreciate the good advice.

    Rusty so glad you started this topic! I am new as in watched one match in the morning a couple months ago. I plan to get a cross draw to add to my holster and belt I inherited from Dad, a basic modern sheriff basket weave, to start and learn what I like. The advice and opinions here are awesome! Thanks all. I'm afraid to comment on the crotch comments.... way too many easy puns there, but appreciate the "crotch shot" photos!
  9. I'd like to tip my hat in respect. We have had very nice communications and you have been very helpful. I hope I close my other deal in time to grab these. In the mean time thank you for your time.

  10. I Swear I never touched those cards, simmer down!
