Re: Winchester 94 jammed on me.

The problem is most likely the little cartridge stop on the end of the lever link is either worn enough to stop the last cartridge in the tube, or that link is binding just a tad and not raising enough to catch the rim on the cartridge.

Re: Federal ammo useful?

If your rifle likes it, it'll do ok, but if your rifle doesn't like it , you got 4550 rounds to pawn off on to somebody.

Re: Reloading question....

I use the Redding T7 turret press for sizing,seating etc. I have all the stuff for their priming system, but use the RCBS universal priming tool for the majority of cases.

Re: Do you recognize this powder?

Most likely it's some sort of canister powder that we don't get over the counter.
Would be a better thing to just reload your empties with a different powder, such as using the youth load data Hogdon's provides for 4895.

Re: Favorite 32-20 Load

I've been using 5 grains of unique with a .312-.313 diameter cast 115 gr bullet in the 32wcf for a couple of lustrums now. Load works good in both Colt model P and Police positive handguns and most rifles. When I want to take things up another level in rifles, use the same bullet with bludot or 2400...

Re: $20,000 Worth of Prizes added at Raton

Looks like a good portion of the added money will be from additional entry fees.
There's quite a handful of companies putting up/sponsoring different matches. If a persons shoulder could handle it, you could shoot 1000 rounds over the course of those 4 days.

Re: $20,000 Worth of Prizes added at Raton

My guess would be because the Whittington isn't a sponsor for silhouette, it's the NRA, and I doubt that silhouette will ever be back to the point that 3-500 shooters will entered.
Plus this Trap match is sponsored by the NRA, Whittington and the ATA,,

Doesn’t matter much about the prizes, it does matter about a well run match on a decent range

Re: $20,000 Worth of Prizes added at Raton

The last couple of years the Whittington has gotten much more progressive in improving and expanding some ranges. In particular the sporting clays range now is not only the old one below the east campground, they added 2 more over by competitor housing. Not sure what groups were involved, but they h...

Re: Any rule changes ?

Lebanon, Kansas is the geographic center of the US (48 contiguous states). Wichita, KS is the closest major city for flights in/out, so either Wichita or Kansas City. How many silhouette ranges are there in either city? b-( There are at least 2, one at the Tappan Hill gun club north of Salina, and ...

Re: bank widths for 22bpcr CPTR

Check this web page out, it'll tell you just about everything you need to know to get a 22bpcr match up and running. But beware it is a very fun event, and will likely attract a bunch of shooters, and entire families. http://www.22bpcra.com/forum/forum/originshistory-intent-articles-membership-targe...
