Re: To close a shotgun

I agree with John. Keep the shotgun barrels in a safe direction close the gun in a smooth and steady motion. This allows the bolting system to snap into place. Any shotgun safe for shooting will be designed to be closed this way. Easing the toplever is not required and raising the stock end seems ov...

Re: Fitting new barrels project

John I did not have the barrels made. That would have been extremely expensive. What I did was find an old lower grade gun with a set of barrels that I could strike to the action I had. This is difficult to do as every action is a little different. Finding a useable set is a lucky find Converting th...

Fitting new barrels project

I have fitted a 32 inch set of barrels to a live bird gun I use to shoot sporting clays with. Here in the states it is difficult to get a set of barrels that are suitable to fit and strike to match an action. I just got it back from the engraver. I will shoot it a bit to make sure everything is in g...

Wif miffed

Wife sent me to store with money and instructions to get her dog a jacket. She said I could buy some beer if any money left over.

Re: 8 bore paper shells.

I may have been mistaken about reloading these red paper cases. Since the red cases use the two piece sure-fire primer I cannot source any here. The only cases that will work are buff colored and they will accept a 209 primer. I will keep looking :D

Re: 8 bore paper shells.

I believe I can source some primers here if they are not standard 209s. I have a couple of books with reloading recipes and component sources written by a fellow here, that performs ammunition pressure testing for industry and private citizens. He has a good selection of low pressure loads of smokel...

Re: 8 bore paper shells.

I just heard back from Southams they are unable to ship primed cases. I will keep trying to find some unprimed.

Re: 8 bore paper shells.

They rarely come on the market here. There are several on guns international but have all been there for a long while because the sellers are asking too much for them. I found mine at a skeet range it was in bad shape. Had to strip and relay the barrels, rebrown and make a new spring for the top lev...

8 bore paper shells.

I reload for my 8 bore with industrial plastic shells that I resize down to fit in my shotgun. After 1 reloading the black powder pretty much ruins the case.. I have been unable to locate any paper 8 or 4 bore paper cases here in the US. Have any of you in the UK have a source of empty's or loaded o...
