    If that's your first I can't wait to see the next one
    Well done.
    Sad to say I'm probably a one and done.

    Kind of miffed this morning 
    Been anxious to try it out.
    I was going to load a few and found everything but the correct shell holder.

    That all looks way to new to be in your possession...

    Same as 32 Win Spl
    7-30 Waters
    307 Win
    45 Colt Government ( I assume the old balloon head cases.) 45 Colt is listed as .512

    According to Cartridges of the World.

    Same shell holder as .30-30.  .38-55 is the mother case for .32 Spec., .32-40, 25-35, .30-30, .219 zipper, and a few others I probably forgot.

    Hey, seeing that you do not have the proper shell holder, there is no need to hang onto the rifle.  Just pack it up and send it down this way.  I have some ammo for it on hand and have the proper shell holder.
    I promise to keep it safe and take very good care of it

    Thanks Ron.

    I should be able to find a shell holder easy enough.

    Having those winchester 2 1/2 primers in this shortage though was huge.  

    I may have to switch to PB powder though according to Saco
