Last time, we talked about the “cowboy style” Rossi 92 lever-action rifle,, with the 16″ barrel, chambered in .38 Special and .357 Magnum. However, as the antis have liked to say for years, “no ammo, no guns.” Even though ammo availability is coming back now, let’s face it: .357 Magnum ammunition has never been exactly cheap. So, we’re going to talk about how to handload for this little Rossi rifle.
Of course, this info also applies to any other rifle chambered for the same round–your Winchesters, Marlins, Henry’s, Ruger’s, and so on.
For those of you who hand-load already, here are some levergun-specific tips ‘n’ tricks to look out for. If you don’t yet hand-load, do consider it; you’ll be able to enjoy that little Rossi a lot more than you otherwise would be able to.
And doggone it, it’s our right to do so!
Videos for doing this are at my personal Web site for free download, http://www.sanfranciscoliberalwithagun.com/. Most examples show .38 Special, so they’re directly applicable to this levergun.
