Re: Rolling Block For Sale, 40-65

Busman78,

Thank you for the information. That rifle sounds like the real deal. I'll forward your information to my friend. My recommendation to him will be to purchase the rifle for his young son.

All the best,

DanT

Re: Rolling Block For Sale, 40-65

busman78,

A friend is interested in your RB. He's like to know:

Barrel manufacturer and twist-rate

Who did the gunsmithing?

Whose reamer was used?

Is there any rust-pitting in the barrel?

Is the action tight?

All the best,

Dan

Re: 35 maynard

Gents, I thought I'd share my experiences with some of the 35-cal, Maynard cartridges. The first Maynard I had a reamer and dies made for (CH4D 35-40 Lucas dies) was the 35-40 Maynard slightly modified from the original so modern 38-55 Winchester brass could be used as the parent case. A 10-twist ba...

Re: ammo plastic tote

kokomokid, I've been using the MTM RF22 LM ammo boxes for years. They are dandy for 45-70-up-to-45-100 rounds. The rounds are rim down; and, the boxes are great for taking to the line. I place some foam under the lid to keep the rounds from jostling about. http://www.mtmcase-gard.com/products/rifle/...

Re: Money bullet

The testing Charlie posted a link to was done in the fall of 2004. The first GG'less bullets were developed for a 10-twist, 38-50 a year before. That rifle was used in the NRA BPTR Long-range Championships in 2003, my first LR championships. The load was 5.2 grains of RL-7 under 52.0 grains of Swiss...

Re: 40-90 BN

Mr. Barvid, Me thinks the low nose drag of your "clean" bullet by Paul Jones is the reason it works so well out of your 16-twist, 40-65. But, I'd like to pull your 600-yd target:-))) The target tells no lies:-))) IIRC you're launching that puppy with 65.0 grains of Swiss 1.5, no? Now's that F-Classe...

Re: 40-90 BN

Dan, what was the money bullet load for your 40-90? THANKS LB kid, My 40-90 SBN sports a 14.5 GM barrel that is 32" long (#4 Win taper), so the 1.45" long PJ Money Bullet works well at 434-gr when cast in 16-1. It did not shoot as well when cast in 20-1. The powder charge is 88.0 grains of Swiss Fg...

Re: 40-90 BN

I second what MartiniBelgian said about your barrel's twist-rate. Make sure it has a 16-twist barrel. And, I might add, that even with a 16-twist barrel, the 420 Brooks Creedmoor will not be optimally stable, especially at the ram-line and beyond. Years ago, a friend was having problems at rams when...

Re: 40-90 BN

MSUTTONRN, I've had a 40-90 SBN for about 8 years. It is easy to load for, but one must understand what to do and what not to do when loading BN cartridges. Here are a few things that have worked and not worked with BN cartridges, of which I've used several others for even longer. 1. Zero compressio...

Re: Broken Case Extraction

Terry, Plug your chamber. Next, stand the rifle with muzzle up and pour in enough penetrating oil (Kroil) to a level above the separated case's mouth. Let the rifle stand for a day or so. That should loosen up the case enough to use a super-tight patch carefully pounded down from the muzzle with a c...

Chris,

I believe KennyW has the 1.45" long version of the 0.446" diameter PP Money Bullet mould from BACO. Best to contact him for the real deal.

Re: BAC0 0.446" PP Mould

Chris, I've got the pot and mould heating to temp. Let me say this succinctly and forcefully; those that don't like to use Gussy's, locking mould-handles are just old farts that don't know how to change their nasty habits (Stones' allusions abound.) Once one learns how to use Gussy's, very fine lock...
