Re: Mr Hosmers new long range

Dick,

You're welcome. The 11 pcs (actually 12 - found another) most likely aren't going anyplace soon as most shooters usually buy brass in 100 pcs quantities and want it all from one lot. If you do have a mind to try out the Long Range TD, email me and I'll send them your way.

By the way, you most likely know that, other than the possibility of a little leading in front of the chamber, you can safely fire .45-70 in the rifle. I've sold a bunch of the more recent Winchester Creedmoors M1885 in .45-90. Several are new to BPCR and are not handloaders. A few are successfully shooting over-the-counter .45-70 ammo or getting some of the aftermarket .45-70 cast loads. If you do try .45-70 cast handloads in your rifle, I suggest you use gas checks if possible, which should help in either eliminating or reducing leading.

Thanks a lot, Wayne. I'll give it some thought, but, I have to warn you - it may be a while. If you get a chance to sell it to someone else first, go ahead. But I DO appreciate the offfer!
