Re: I just saw that the 1895 is back.

Wow Six, rare stuff.

crs has a 405, iconic rifle, Big Medicine. Like to see him take more stuff hares to hair raising with it. .41 pistol bullets - interesting. Could qualify as Gun Digests One Good Gun.

Re: .357 Mag Handloading with H110 vs Lil'Gun Powders. A Surprising Result

Gdu, I beg to differ. Depends on whether the powder burns completely in the case. Likely will burn in any length .357 rifle barrel.

Re: 357 lever gun 16 vs 20 inch barrel

:wink: indeed MM does V. Didn't have any of the same issues you note. But, I am widely flexible on gun styles. Well ... a few things I don't care for but not involved here. Have not tried the 24". I have tried the variations from 18" to 28" in 45-70 and like the 22" better than the 26".

Very interesting. A friend gave me some 45.Colt loads with a custom 360 grain Keith SWC and Lil Gun. This produced surprisingly high velocities out of my 20" Rossi with a shotgun like recoil feeling.
