Wheels? Yeh...Might need some for the front of that barrel...For support of course.

Stovepipe? Ya wanna help us out here?

Be glad to assist.......

The answer in really quite simple.

The gun weighs 56oz.

I figure 4 and 3/4, '12oz. curls' equals about the same amount of work as one draw/shot.

And I still got's 1 1/4" 12oz'ers left, ya know, as a post-exertion recovery energy drink.

Stovepipe, that is excellent thinking! My Ruger Super Redhawk w/ red dot, loaded, weighs 67 ounces. Might as well finish a whole 6 pack! To be honest though, I doubt I drink a 6 beers a year. Do soft drinks count?

Yes- it's the weight that counts.... Very Happy
But- the 'weights' I'm lifting seem to make me heavier... Laughing

And- you can drink a soda pop before and during.

Barley pop from Vince's cooler? Only after......them's the rules in my camp!

Them's the rules in any sensible man's camp Stove. I took a slab of 30 375ml cans with me for my mate and I last weekend and I only had two.

To get back on topic...have ya managed to get on top of yer "cartoony" gun mate? How is it shootin for you...does the little flag that says BANG unfurl in a clockwise or anti-clockwise direction when it pops outa the barrel?

Cheers, Vince

What direction do the drains spin down under, mate?
According to Corriolis, we should be rotating in opposite directions or some such.... the flag should flop to the right here ,or is it the right? ahhh....I dunnow! Laughing

The hog-leg is pretty un-dramatic.
That long barrel really sucks it up good, that and the Pachy grip. I think I'm just too old anymore for plow-handles w/o a glove- not big on gloves, even though it looks a treat with the stock panels.
Sherrif Jim Wilson I aint!

Getting a huntin' rig for carry nailed down as well from Retting.

The Houge grip I wanna try is coming Friday- going to the outdoor ranges for some practice that day was well with some mild stuff, the two other grips I have and a recoil glove for the plow handles- IF the place don't close cuz it's blowing hot again out here and the Fed's are on it. Argh. Not again....

Aint settled on a reload bullet yet.
Wanna jacketed FT for practice, maybe even hunting. If the hog-hunt comes to fruition, might go hard-cast if a robust enough jacketed slug aint avail for pork. But I hate leading so...maybe some Crisco on the base? Laughing

I'm also thinking there's a lot of good factory ammo now- but my mentor says relaoding pays off with better consistancy etc. He's right, I'm lazy. Very Happy

My shootin' partner is very intrested in a hog and will be backing me up (and vice-versa) with his S/W m29 8 3/8"- he's a much better fast-shooter than me so I can breath easier knowing he's got my back with a DA revolver. I could not imagine trying to catch some bacon alone. Tough and mean critters they is.

I have some experimenting to do and I'm really looking forward to it, and, will log it all and share results with ya'll.
I have a great reloading mentor as well that keeps me in check and got around 200 rounds of nice brass. Should be more than plenty to make a lot of different loads.

This is gonna be fun! Very Happy

-kevin.

Stove old mate....ya got it in one.

Good luck with your hog hunt...its surprising how 300gns of "see things my way", delivered at the appropriate speed and aggression, can get the message across to a cantankerous hog. Very Happy

Cheers, Vince

Kevin, take a look at the Speer 270 grain Gold Dot SP for a jacketed hunting bullet.

Thanks Vinny and thank you Pumpsling...I will do just that.

I have a lot of work to do and sorting sutff out (and making notes) so...good thing I like to shoot!

I'm thinking I'll start w/ paper, bench rest at 50y at an inch high, then check the drop at 100y when I find a load I/the gun likes.

I've been doing some (a little) reading on hard-cast bullets- seems they like some lube (what kind?) to reduce leading and impact on the forcing cone? A clean bore helps for sure but...

I definietly wanna be nice to my forcing cone. Toothless

Very Happy stovepipe;what vince said about the 300 grainers-hornady and nosler make some jhp's in 300 grn that are very accurate and definately pack the mail downrange. Cool
