Re: 38-55 LF - Pros & Cons

Thank you all for the input. Your comment Griff gave me confidence that there may be a baseline...
The seller has offered cases & dies with the rifle, so I figured I'd start with the LEE .379"mold and go from there,
but the fact remains that I will have to "Slug it & see".

38-55 LF - Pros & Cons

I've been offered a Legendary Frontiersmen .38-55 at a good price. Here in Australia, they were never as popular as the .30-30 but I am really keen. I did some reading and came away rather confused about cast bullet sizes, case thicknesses etc. Seems there is some variation and opinions vary from .3...

Re: Wrangler - Advice needed

Thanks for the knowledgeable replies guys, and yep this gun is definitely 'Shooter Grade' at best. I had wondered if somebody has tried to attach some sort of mount in the past, maybe using the saddle ring hole, and the added hole in the top of the barrel. Not in a hurry to purchase as I have severa...

Hello, It's been a long time since I posted here, but I'm looking for a bit of knowledge here..... I've been offered a 30/30 Wrangler, and to be honest, something doesn't seem right about it. I have seen the roll marked scenes on the 32 specials but not so many on the 30/30's. Also the sights both l...

Have you fitted a peep on the 94's bolt?
Thanks Nath,
The little one is an early Rossi 92 357mag with ornately engraved receiver
the '94 is a 1972 30/30 with a Lyman side mounted peep.

Re: Rossi - dates of manufacture

Sorry to take so long with a picture.
It was part of a deceased estate & I only took possession today.
The rifle is still covered in some sort of brownish grease in places and appears unfired.

Rossi - dates of manufacture

I'm looking at a Rossi 357m serial No. K004429
and I want to find some info about when it was made. It's got a fancy reciever in H/chrome or nickel and covered in scroll work, but there's nothin much written anywhere as to commemorations or the like.

Re: ROSSI -357mag

Thanks for the replies fellers.
The Marlin I spoke of just doesn't seem to like the 'lip'of the SWC's and seems to catch on the chamber mouth. When working the lever it would stop on the lip,... you would have to back off slightly and have another go and then it would continue into battery.

ROSSI -357mag

Does anyone shoot Cast Semi Wadcutters in a Rossi 357 levergun?
If so, do they present any problems with feeding.
A buddy just bought a new Marlin 357 and it wont have a bar of 'em. It will only take "cowboy style" RNFP's so I was wondering what experiences people are having with their Rossi's.

Yeah we can own handguns but there is a lot of B/S to wade through each year. Semi auto & pump shotguns (lever actions arent affected) are restricted to those of us who can show special needs.

Ot- What's with kids today?

This type of teenage behaviour is sadly on the increase here in OZ. I work in the security industry and the change I see in youth's attitudes in recent years is apalling. I can't believe the lack of respect, discipline and manners. http://www.theage.com.au/news/national/i-had-the-best-party-ever/200...

HELP - Bullet Mold Wanted

I'm looking to get hold of a .38/357 hollow point mold. I had the LEE No.90484 or 90485 in mind but cant find one here in OZ and apparently they are not made as a standard item anymore. RCBS 'Devastator" looks good but again can't locate one here. Any help would be greatly apreciated. Kind regards.....
