Not Really a Conversion
« on: February 27, 2016, 08:14:54 AM »
While searching for info on the 44 Henry Flat CF I stumbled across a Video from Larry Potterfield and thought some of you might enjoy. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lWXz3GR6seo

Interesting clip. I reload for several obsolete calibers, making cases from other modern ones. Some are more involved than others, but they are all fun.

No politics intended here.

But was surprised to learn Trump's son, Donald Jr., reloads for 80 different cartridges, many of them obsolete and it is a passion of his.

Interesting video. Conversions are appealing to me, so this is another learning tool.
I do have a little heel dragging to the ..........$250 cylinder price tag, however.

A neighbor came by today with an old Browning pistol. Got it from a 90-yrs old lady relative. It's a very small (size of your palm) 6.35 míllimeter with a 2.5 inch barrel. He wanted help to dismantle it. Was a rather unusual construction. Fabrique National, Belgium, I guess it was made 1900 to 1920. My question: 6.35 mm equals .25". I've never come across that caliber before. Is this a caliber that can be aquired or shall one have to resort to re-forming .22 cases?

25 auto/6.35 Browning/25 ACP is a standard caliber that is readily available available on this side of the pond.   Reloading supplies should also be easily obtained.

Mike & Sour
thanks for your swift responses. Now I can act as if I'm in the know, when the neighbor comes around to get help assembling the piece (after he've cleaned the parts, lots of old dirt to get rid of, rifling not discernable)
