Reloading and Handloading / Cleaning brass
« Last post by Adskii on Today at 11:38:30 AM »
So have a bag full of brass I picked up while camping, I got it to use as bright shiny bits on knife handles. Just one problem, they were outside long enough that they aren't shiny.

I have two questions, one: is there a low to no cost way to clean up that brass?
Two: what is the easy way to remove those primers? Drilling each one seems time intensive.

I'm mostly making toy jewelry and decisions out of them. Who would figure that my girls fight each other for the bracelet with spent 9mm shells that  tinkle like bells.

I think they are fine guns.  Well made.  Only problem I've seen with them are wood grips that didn't fit 100% perfectly.

I like the Uberti guns and think they're well made, but that model in particular?

 :shrug

I've no experience with it.

May be good, may be bad. It's so new there isn't a lot out there on it.

I'd suggest not rolling the dice and getting a Ruger in .44 or .45 Colt.

Handguns / Uberti Callahan Cattleman?
« Last post by AmericanPraetorian on Today at 09:35:36 AM »
Anybody got any experience with the .44 Magnum Callahan?  The Cattleman version, not the Target?  How well would it hold up to full-power loads?  Considering it for my backcountry gun.

Here is picture of a 585HE made on a Stiller bolt action for guy in Canada.

It was made for the poster Spooksar on Africa Hunting and Accuratereloading,

by Corlanes/Rocky Mountain rifles, in Dawson Creek BC Canada, with a

Stiller action, Timney trigger. the stock is a blue/grey laminate. He imported

the barrel, cases, dies, etc.. from us,  through Prophet River in Lloydminster AB.


 



That action similar to  Lawton we had and neighbor got,  that won the King Of The

2 Mile shoot at Whittington,  with the 375 Lethal cartridge the neighbor made,

 from our 585 brass. Made it full length case,.. It is big one on the right.

He made an 18 lb gun with McMillan target stock, a huge scope, tripod..

Nice thing is we don't need BMG action.ED

Here is a helix driver seal we made by cutting base from helix driver

wadcup, good for fullbore roundballs that are too big to go in cup.

Best one to cut off is shortest `12ga  one BPI has.

Handguns / VZ Tac Diamond Grips, Too Grippy for CCW?
« Last post by MTK20 on Today at 12:46:07 AM »
Just a quick question here. I'm thinking of getting some VZ grips for the 686.



From the looks of the photo's they are actually decently small and concealable and I'd like to have something a little grippier than my current smooth tulip wood grips.

For those who have experience with them and this company, do you feel they could serve the role of concealed carry grips?

I understand that these are grippy and I want that, but I don't want:

1. Them to grab my clothing like rubber grips do, or be too abrasive as to damage clothing (hey, the website says they are really grippy).

2. I don't want them to be too big for concealed carry (although the images from the site leave me feeling confident that they are good size wise).

3. I want them to be abrasive enough to shoot with, but gentle enough to ride against my body all day. If they are kissing my belly button through my back, then that kind of outweighs their usefulness  :neener.

All joking aside, they look gorgeous and I might just have to get me some. If you've had or used VZ grips before, please tell me of your experience!
