Well, cruising Facebook (again) I found a lady selling some 45/70 stuff.
I bought a set of Lyman dies, 60 rounds of once fired winchester brass, 300 of the 325 gr jacketed hollowpoint projectiles, and 300 primers.
Apparently left by her ex when he moved out..
All for the asking price of $30
I guess I will see how it shoots with black powder and the hollow points.
Then load some smokeless..
I make 2 predictions:
ON THE DATE WHEN US TROOPS ARE ISSUED AN Energy Pulse Weapon,
1. The US Soldier will have on his person a version of the Colt 1911.
2. He will be aiming the NEW Weapon at someone carrying an AK.
