I use Starline brass, no problems that I've noticed. All seem to be cut to the same length, no issues reloading them, good, shiny, and clean looking when they get here. I cut some 9x19 down to use as 9x18 Mak brass and had no issues when they fireformed. Nevertheless, I bought a 1,000 9x18 brass a while back. Funny how a case that uses less metal and takes the same amount of machine work costs so much more... :thinkin: :dunno:

I feel ya Randy! I bought 1000 10mm pieces of brass form them years ago and thought I paid tooo much. Today, it's almost as cheap to buy loaded ammo and recycle that now
that much of the Ovomit scare has died down.

The wife brought my reloading stuff home from the post office!!

Image

Dies, Turret, Shell Plate and Brass!! (-:

Lee dies are such a good deal - they come with a shell holder and a plastic dipper which is handy if you
have a scale, but no powder measure.
Which reminds me - I didn't order a powder measure!!
I like the cheap Lee Auto-Disk powder measure - I have just one and it works pretty darn good!!
I have a couple of Lee's Pro Auto-Disk powder measures and they're $18 or so more and works the same.
But - with only a couple hundred rounds max - it won't bother me to measure each charge.

Image

All the load data with the dies is all 44 special but 44 Mag load data is pretty easy to come by.
I hope I can use 700X powder... I can get rid of it 2 times faster than with my 45 ACP!! (-:
Looks like 9.5 Grains is the max and a velocity of 1,185.

And the brass looked immaculate:

Image

I'll count it soon and see if theres anywhere near a 100 pieces in there.
If theres a 101 pieces, I'll rave about it in a review
If I get 99, I'll complain bitterly about how I was "ripped off" like everyone else does!! :D :roll:
I'll have 200 pieces total with the 100 rounds I bought with the gun.
I figure thats enough for a 44 Mag - I probably won't put thousands of rounds through it like my 45... But you never know!! (-:

Well - The bullets are supposed to be here today!!
I'm kind of excited about reloading for a revolver...
Glad I have Tolleys number handy... :great: And Ex is a revolver reloader too... :D

Anymore, the only revolver loads I do are .38 spl and .357 mag. But I sure do enjoy both of those!

Is a semi-jacketed (jacketed soft point) projectile a good choice for a revolver? I can envision scary things happening ifn one decides to slip out of its jacket at the forcing cone. :dunno: Might never happen...

Is that jacketed or copper clad? The jacketed one Jason showed showed the jacket was loose looking on the lead. It had a defined shoulder of copper on the ogive.

Ive never tried Photobucket with my iphone - so let's see if it works!!

Image

The bullets got here!! Yes!! Those guys are good.
My 2nd order and they get here when they say they will. (-:

Another picture or two:


Image

Image

They look like great bullets!!
Beats the hell out of the soft plated bullets.
If I wasn't sitting in Rapid right now, there's a good chance I'd be...
Well sleeping as my Harley trip and grandkids weekend wore me out!! (-:

But - I will get my Load-Master set up for this as soon as I feel like it.
I'd like to smooth the sharp part on the back of the grip too before I shoot the 44 Mag again.

Anybody know of some kind of "slip-over" type rubber grip cover for these kind of grips?
I think pachmeyer makes a replacement set of grips made of rubber or something softer.
Husker had a set make for a Ruger - I wonder if the make some for this revolver.
I wonder if I could order softer grips for a Colt single action Army...
Would they fit on this Bounty Hunter?? :dunno:

I'm not sure how these wood grips even come off...
I took the screw out of each side and they stayed in place and solid!!

Do I have to remove all the screws on the bottom (trigger guard) and the 2 on the back above the grips??

Just thought I'd ask!!

Probably a screw on the bottom of the grip frame and two below the hammer. Should be able to wiggle the back strap out and then the grip.
At least that's how my Pietta is.

Randy they make the 9x19 luger brass by the billions and the 9x18 brass by the hundred of thousands.... they can afford to sell the 9x19 cheaper because they are selling more of it to make up on the profit.. 9x18 is the red headed step child of the 9mm family LOL

I'll check that out Tolly and see if that's how to remove them.

I also noticed this:

Image

Above is one side and below shows the other:

Image

The screws were ALL loose on this gun!!
I think the above is fairly important to the gun working correctly... :shock:

This one was about 3 turns from calling out:

Image

Sorry for the all the crappy pictures!! I usually do better...
Anyway - The bottom is the screw closest to the end of the barrel and holds the ejector rod apparatus on.

I checked them all - every single screw I could see was loose - and some REALLY loose!!
And I checked them before I went to the range and shot it.
Some were loose when it was NIB and I tightened them.

I think some Loctite is called for here - Loctite is now a German owned company where this revolver was made...

I have some in a blue bottle and some in a red bottle...
The stuff in the red bottle is really good stuff - I think it's like bushing retaining compound!!
I think it's a little too strong for this revolver - but maybe not!!
This SOB has some punishing recoil and I really wonder if the blue stuff is strong enough...

I guess I'm thinking with the other 2 revolvers I have for sale - - Well. I'd like to put something on the screws
of those other 2 revolvers so the new owners won't have a problem with this.

I think i'm going to use the red stuff - better safe than sorry!!

The ones you're selling I wouldn't use the red stuff on the ones for sale, you need a really good, properly fitted screwdriver to break that stuff loose. At least they have a chance with the blue.
