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.

Winchester’s Model 1886 Short Rifle in 45-90 Winchester Part II If you don't have data, develop your own

Mowing the lawn puts one into a contemplative frame of mind. I don’t know why.

It may also be the monotony of cutting the same…
