Winchester Model 1892 Carbine Part II An appropriate diet of 357 Magnum handloads

11/29/2020 Quite a week for getting things done. The area light on the shop would only dimly glow blue, a very small firefly in a very large bottle, was repaired with a simple bulb change. The ballast on this fixture is not replaceable. If it had failed it would have meant swapping out with a…

Winchester’s Model 1892 Carbine Part I Another baby Browning

11/27/2020 Not going for melodrama here, but raking leaves in New England is worse than a Sisyphus bout with inclined, repetitive boulder rolling.

Winchester 1873 and the 44-40 WCF Part I Project Status: 80% time spent, 20% done

11/03/2019 The project was originally geared toward handloading the 44-40 WCF cartridge. Most load data I’ve put together, and most I’ve seen, is based on relatively fast powder and short barrel carbines or handguns. With a SAAMI MAP of only 11,000 PSI, and an early Winchester lever action design, not a whole lot was going…

Marlin’s 444 Marlin Part II Fun with lever action rifles...

Ah yes, I remember when a work day was comprised of suiting up and working through a new product presentation or presenting quarterly financials to board members. My basic objective was to justify my position and salary, while they were there mostly for a report of no problems, free donuts and a limo ride back…
