I dunno about too much gun, but it looks to me like that may be the guy in charge of security at Crossfire's establishment.

Amen on the wheel weights. Don't be spreading that kind of info around too far now; might be such a run on them a guy would have to start stealing them off the Peterbilts at the truck stops.

Go back to the 2nd page into this site where all the match announcements and results are located. Scroll down to the 2nd topic (I think) from the bottom, and you should find a good sypnosis of using vernier tang sites and globe front sites. That should give you a good start.

Send your off-center eye cup back to Browning with a letter explaining the problem, and I think they will make it right for you. I sent the entire vernier tang sight back to them several years ago, because it started to wobble from front to back and from side to side. Browning completely overhauled ...

Straight water works very well for a wiping solution, as does water:water sol. oil at about 9:1 mix or so. If you are hunting/shooting in cold weather you may need to add some windshield washer fluid or rubbing alcohol to keep your wiping solution from freezing in the barrel. Trust me; you don't wan...

AlanR.,

I have a Browning 1885 hiwall in .45/70, and I haven't seen a thing wrong with it. It performs well in matches and for hunting as long as I do my part. I wouldn't hesitate to buy another one, if I found one that insisted on following me home.

Alan,

FYI there is a Winchester 1885 HiWall for sale on the Buffalo Arms site. It is listed under the consignment firearms, and there are a couple of fairly good pictures of it and a written description.

Red L., Getting back to you on the .40/65 load info. My friend uses 34 gr. of AA 2495BR powder, WLR primers and a 400 gr. RCBS cast bullet, and reformed WW .45/70 brass and no wads or fillers. He said it consistently shoots 3/4" 5 shot groups at 100 yds, and he can clean all the 300 m pigs off the r...

Red L.,

A good friend of mine shoots AA2495 in his Browning 1885 highwall .40/65, and it shoots very well for him out to 300 m that I know about. At the moment I can't remember the overall composition of his loads, but I can find that out for you if you are interested.

What are the model # of the MVA sights on your rifle? Also, the pictures on the Buffalo Arms site looks like there is no rear barrel sight; is that correct? Thanks.

TexasMac, I don't come over to this site all that often so I didn't see your post until this morning; sorry about that.

I don't know the level of penalties that can be assessed for copyright infringement, but for patent infringement it can be triple damages plus legal fees of the patent holder.

As a short follow-up re: pp bullets, I have done almost exactly what Brent said and from what I can see the bullets seem to shoot like gangbusters with zero leading. I ordered a Steve Brooks mould in 0.440 diameter, 1.4" long, with a 1/4" flat meplat for hunting (550 gr.). They patch up to just unde...
