rebarreled C Sharps

I adopted a Shiloh/C.Sharps rifle that was made back in the mid 1980s before or near to the split of the two Montana Sharps companies. The barrel on my Sharps has the Wolf stamp and indicates its a C Sharps "Old Reliable" but the action is stamped Shiloh with Montana Address. My rifle was chambered ...

I wonder if ...

lead ammo hunting ban in CA

Our State and Federal legislators are being fed a constant and relentless diet of misinformation regarding the banning of lead ammunition for hunting. There is enough scientific evidence that puts doubt directly on the claims by the anti-lead expert evidence that it would be terribly unwise to take ...

Re: how did the old dead guys do it?

I see that a pope style capper/decapper tool is available, and that is supposed to be historically accurate?

Re: how did the old dead guys do it?

Does anyone make repros of the historically correct tools they used in re-loading? OR are the original tools found for sale very often?

how did the old dead guys do it?

How did the old guys in the Buffalo camps handle:
cleaning used brass?
depriming and priming cases?

Re: Newbie intro and plea for help

For lining a barrel, would the whole gun need to be shipped? Couldn't you just ship the barrel and save FFL? Anyone know?

Re: Newbie intro and plea for help

Thanks, I did email him and he has given me a ballpark quote. He is in a bit of a backlog at the moment, but that does not bother me as I have no money to invest in this right now anyway..
