Re: Sights for a Henry .357 big boy

I use Berry 125 gr with 5.0 titegroup. Don't know about swapping primers. My loads stay around 1200 fps. I use this load in cla up to turkeys then use 180 Serria with 13.1 grs n110 but am changing to h110 due to cost. Watch for leading in barrel with cast. Your bullets may have no problem but I don'...

Re: Sights for a Henry .357 big boy

I use the second tallest. I think it was .454 could be .494. If it goes on a barrel with dovetail . Watch out on loads to fast and you could bottom out on chickens. That's a problem I had. Plus if you use a 1 inch rear app your trigger may not clear. This is the same set up my wife uses.

Re: Considering a 32-20 caliber

Hornady 125 gr xtp 6.5 grains n320 wspm primer. Used as cla load. PC load is berry 125 fp 5.0 titegroup wspm primer starline brass. Both loads are spot on. Thinking about using berry 158 to replace Hornady. Works through turkeys on cla.

Re: Considering a 32-20 caliber

Stay with the 357. Have 2 by Henry. Wife shot a long run record in NH. Shot a 8 shot 1 inch group at 50 yards with iron sights. Both rifles are big boy steels. More choice of bullets and brass.

Behind the Berm

What's the deal. A link is put up that doesn't work. Twenty pages of access requests no reply. Does it take a super secret decoder ring?

Re: 2017 Granite State Silhouette Cowboy Classic 8/18, 19 20

Kim and I had a great time. Was a good match with great weather except Friday which didn't bother Kim to much it would seem. She is still fling high. Kim not holding it over my head as long as medals are polished, rifles cleaned and ammo reloaded. Look forward to next year.

Re: Cowboy Legal Single shot?

The rules list only 3 rifles that is legal. Lever, pump or semiautomatic that is tube fed.
That would be a great rifle for 22bpcr match.

Re: lever action sights help needed

If I was you I would look at the henry Frontier. It has a 24 inch barrel and all the requirements to properly put sights on it. I paid 408 plus tax ,shipping, and background check. Can buy a lot of ammo with difference in prices. The action is smooth with about a 3.5 trigger pull from factory. Will ...

Re: Alternative to the 30-30?

I don't know your barrel length. I tried the 125 /170 combo and it does rattle your teeth. My marlin has a 20 inch barrel. I tried a berry 150 plated using 24 grs of varget. My shooting partner tried this load in a marlin waffle top made in the 50s. He tried 4 rounds and had pressure problems. We fo...

Re: lever action sights help needed

Check the top of recenter and see if it is groves. If it is you can use a williams fpgrtk. If the barrel is dovetail slotted you can put a Lyman globe front sight. Depending if it is slotted on the barrel or on a ramp determined the height required. Barrel slotted .494 ramp slotted .404. You may wan...

Re: Sights for a Henry .357 big boy

Ken as I get older I get more forgetful. A couple we shoot with have big boys in 357 . He mounted a williams for the 336. It is tight but will work. They tried tang sights and did not like them. They take a bit of getting use to. Take a look at a sight for a contender it maybe a little wider. When I...
