    Elmer Keith's book Sixguns has a picture of a S&W 1917 done that way. It was published in 1955, so somebody was doing them before that.

    I'll see if I can find my copy.

    One of the best things about a 45 ACP revolver is the ability to use inexpensive lead bullets. But that demands a roll crimp like Elmer Keith described before WWII, especially as bullet weight...

    I experimented with crimp a in S&W Model of 1989 several years ago.

    Headspace can vary on S&W 45 ACP revolvers, going all the way back to the original 1917. Some won't fire 45 ACP ammo without...

    It's no problem to apply a heavy roll crimp IF the bullet has a proper crimp groove like this one.

    Even a shallower groove like this one can work, you just can't crimp as deeply.

    Yep, feeding would be critical. If you could sort that out, then you could turn it into a damned Yankee rifle that could be loaded on Sunday and fired all week. It wouldn't be as versatile as a Colt...

    I'm interested to see how this one plays out. I have astigmatism so red-dot sights look like a cluster of grapes. Unfortunately, it's never the same cluster of grapes, so I can't just pick one grape...

    From the link:

    So next time around, anyone tied to last summer's nonsensical decisions will face the wrath of people who don't have their heads up their asses?

    I'm fine with that.

    It might be better for the market, but I have K-frame sized hands. I've shot a number of SP101s and I'm impressed, but they're just a bit too small for me to run well in a hurry.

    I really wish Ruger would resurrect the Security/Speed Six family. The only thing keeping me from buying one of these is the future spare parts issue.

    Much wisdom here.

    I think you'd be OK with a 1.75" rigger's belt, 1-2 rifle mag carriers, 1-2 pistol mag carriers, a pistol holster, and a drop pouch for empty mags. If you remove the drop pouch,...

    Yep.

    She made it all the way to City Hall, then reaped her own whirlwind in the 2020 Summer of LoveTM. Unfortunately, all of Seattle reaped it with her.

    May a pox be upon her.

    I agree. The 7RM, 300 WM, 300 WBY, 338 WM, and 375 H&H will hang on as hunting cartridges like the 45-70 and 30-30 have. But as the Baby Boom and the older GenX generations die off, those cartridges...
