Winchester’s Model 1885 and the 38-55 WCF Part II Handloading for a bit more performance

So I loaded up the Winchester Model 1885 Traditional Hunter’s Deluxe with Blackhills Ammunition 38-55 255 grain flat nose ammo and fired a shot that went 1,331 fps over the chronograph. The rifle shrugged, as though it barely noticed, the muzzle of the 28″ barrel barely coughed, burped and didn’t rise at all. The steel…

Thompson / Center’s Venerable Contender Pistol in 7-30 Waters Part III A little smoke and noise to conclude a project...

I have to say, this project really renewed my interest in the Thompson/Center Contender. It reacquainted me with its recreational potential, its usefulness as a hunting firearm, its portability, and its accuracy. Subsequently, my own Contender is out of storage and the subject of a series of related projects that will appear on Real Guns®….

Thompson / Center’s Venerable Contender Pistol in 7-30 Waters Part II Kickin' ass, makin' brass

Rodney Dangerfield was one of the funniest comics ever. Live stand up, or movies, he was the sharp witted but classless sad sack, who came out on top enough times to make success look possible for… anyone. So after watching the first day of the Supreme Court Justice confirmation hearings, I tore the big screen…

Thompson / Center’s Venerable Contender Pistol in 7-30 Waters Part I A combination that makes handloading fun

Creative genius in people seems to manifest itself as the good ideas many people have, but with an ability to turn those good ideas into successful realities. The combination of Thompson / Center Contender and 7-30 Waters cartridge seems to be a culmination of lots of good ideas, although I am not sure either evolved…

Ruger’s No.1 in Stainless Steel and 257 Roberts Part II

One thing, and probably the only thing I miss about living in California were the shooting ranges. Covered firing line, cement shooting benches, full time range supervision and maintenance, and a pro shop. In Maine, I mostly hose myself down with tick spray, carry a side arm and walk off into the woods and set…
