Weather Sucks, so I've been cleaning Trail Guns...

No small feat these days. What some works of art. I've often wondered how some folks can stare at abstract paintings (their definition) and see beauty. But, more than a few worry about me.

I can't help but admire fine machine work. Fit, finish and execution as well.

Right now mine range from 250 GNR thru 10mm. I can't name a favorite.

And, the saga continues. Just got an email from FedEx that my base gun arrived at Reeders today. So begins the 25-20/251 Falcon.

The idea of a .25-20 trail gun never excited me

it sort of sounds to me like a recipe for cases to set back early. However the .251 Falcon idea solves lots of that and is interesting. There is a certain ratio of body diameter in relation to neck down that works as long as you don't cross it. Not sure if it's a specific mathematical thing or a case specific situation. I wonder if you can make those from the easier to get .32-20? I can't wait for you to find out for me.

The 25-20 is the most exciting caliber for me...

Granted, there is a range where loads work. JT outlined this well in AH May/June 2012.

I'm not looking for screaming velocity from it. But, its a nostalgic round that has survived with good reason.

Of course, you're right, the Improved version will clearly be superior.
