Re: Reloading 6.5x55 for an M94
by Bottom Rung | Yesterday at 11:02:34 PM
Thank you, CTSixshot.  I thought about shooting, heh, you a PM, but I figured it would benefit more people if the information you provided was available for all. I always forget to check the powder manufacturers website. I was leaning toward Varget or Benchmark to start with.  The big issue that I kept finding was the lack of information pertaining to the 6.5 Swede in a short barrel. Much of the published data is from 22”-29” barrels.  Assuming a 30fps per inch decrease in velocity for a shorter barrel, the 32.5 Varget load on Hogdon’s website should put in me in the 2100fps range. That sounds good to me. ...

Why not?  BATF is aware that people change their addresses.  The address on your COF reflects the correct information when you submitted your application.  Now you live somewhere else and your Form 1 will have a different address on it.  Not a big deal....
Re: What Is The Most Purchased Firearms In Connecticut
by Mustang | Yesterday at 10:22:40 AM
On this I would guess the Glock 19, S$W MP, EMP in 9 or 40, XDS or the Ruger LC9, then the LCP.Rifles n shotguns I would tend to guess pre bans, Ruger 10/22 or the Marlin 60, the 500/590 or the 870, ...
Re: Top Carry Firearms In Connecticut
by Mustang | Yesterday at 09:56:20 AM
I would of guessed some compact Glock (19, 23, 43, 42, 26/27/33), 4 inch or shorter 1911 (9mm, 40SW or 45ACP), or some FN such with the FN FNX or the SIG 220 both in 45ACP. Or some other FN SIG in 9mm, 40SW, or 45ACP. Then Ruger in 9mm n rounding it up with S$W in 9mm. Though seeing Connecticut's laws for what they r now my guess would of beeb shot down. With the classes I teach I see lots of people going for the 380, 9mm, and the 40SW firearms. Mostly they opt for some single stacked firearm in 9mm followed by the 380 then 40SW. I don't see too many carrying the 45ACP or the 40SW these days. If I was to take s long shot I would say Glock 43/42, S$W Shield, 4 inch or shorter 1911 in 9mm or 40SW, Ruger LCP or LC9, then the SIG 938....

Re: (Permit) Wait Times in Wethersfield.
by mu2bdriver | September 21, 2018, 03:37:28 PM
Not to mention that the hearings are generally held in Wethersfield in the conference room.  They used to split them up between Middletown and one other city but I believe all have been held in Wethersfield for a while.  I'm surprised that the OP received such an 'early' date.  I was under the impression that the Board was scheduling hearings much farther than six months out....
Primer/powder prices
by CTSixshot | September 21, 2018, 12:15:35 PM
FWIW, at Heritage in West Warwick, RI, CCI 500 primers are priced at $29.95 and CFE Pistol is $24.50 for 16 ounces (one pound, for those of you in Leffingwell). Sales tax is 7% next door.Pretty fair selection of all powders and primers......

Re: Who's shooting today?
by CTSixshot | September 18, 2018, 10:50:41 AM
Come on down this afternoon and shoot some .38 Specials, .44 Magnum, .45 ACP and 7.62x51mm. If interested, you can come along to Midstate Guns in Coventry, RI and Heritage in West Warwick.Hmmmm?  Can't be the two parts of the 230g Golden Saber, since both weigh over 265g (no dirt residue either). Shot through one gallon water-filled plastic jug, one half-gallon water-filled waxed-cardboard container and one half inch of particle board...https://i.imgur.com/NL3zc8s.jpg?1...
