New cartrige that I'm casting and loading now the 25-20 WCF

The bullet mold is a RCBS .258 Cal 85gr. FN bullet.

Useing 7.2gr Win 296 powder.

No gun as of yet. Been bidding on Gunbroker but they have been going sky high. I can wait till this latest scare is over.
Very nice. I have a Marlin in 32-20 which is a joy. I would like one in 25-20, but have not yet found one for a price I am willing to part with.

Pretty sweet! I've set up my Mossy with a Meprolight front sight and a "VERY SHORT" 12 LOP Hogue stock. Been eyeballin' a Remmy Serbu at a local shop [$800+$5 AOW fee] , not very practical but it'd be a blast to shoot [ no pun intended]!

Thank you

If you are looking into an $800-range Remmy, then go no further than Wilson Combat. They make a great tactical model that is on par with their 1911's!

Had to send the light back in, momentary On worked great but it would not function on the continuous side of the switch. New one's due in today! My buddys store was out of 00 buck, so I got 100 1 oz slugs. Can't complain about free ammo! He will be stock piling more while I'm in the Caribbean next week, he says his goal is 300 rounds for a wedding gift :

Next step: Mesa Tactical barrel shroud/optics mount, and a flip-up holographic. Then time to buy my Rem. 700 MLR .338 and deck it out just the same, over-the-top but totally practical!

Btw, I had to 180 the sling and put all the rounds hanging off the shoulder stock, was a lot of weight on the front of the barrel and not much against my body, doing it like this makes it much more pointable and steady!

Check out the SOE Gear micro 12 gauge micro rig, just ordered one last week. Very high quality gear. Not cheap but once in a lifetime type of purchase for me as I don't plan on any more contract work.

Wow, those upgrades look really nice!

The Beretta 92FS Stainless was the first handgun I bought when I turned 21.

Oh be sure to blur, block, or mask out your pistols serial number.

Crooks get your number and engrave it on stolen guns to make them "legal".
