    Efficiency, the case is the right size to get a midweight 30 caliber bullet to a good velocity for hunting and small enough to fit in a truly small action. And a 358 Win does everthing better, better ��

    My rule of thumb for a Marlin/Remlin is to use a .460 boolit.

    Both my 67s shoot hi with hv ammo. Both will shoot subsonics just above the front sight with the rear elevator removed. Put it in a safe place, they are sneeky and will hide from you :) 100$ is a good buy, i gave 50 for one 15 years ago and 200$...

    Anyone else have a Winchester M47, its a single shot version of the 69A. Last of the "fine old single shots" that Winchester did as field guns. My opinion ,FWIW anyway. Slick gun, full size and the safety is "automatic" , mine is a very good shooter.

    Above is the whole story, great post! If your bbl has no serial number and your frame is 1975, then it fits and headspace should be fine, baring a factory defect. I like the idea of a chamber reamer, that would cleanip any issue, just dont cut...

    Yes your dims are correct, tolerance should be .005, so .815 is max. Does the base area of a fired case show a buldge just ahead of the extractor hook? A 75 vintage gun should be after the extractor update, thats about the time of the 20 I had....

    I buy most of my MTD parts from SEPW. Reasonable prices and freight, great catalogs. I have found that a genuine Cub Cadet deck drive belt will outlast an "equivalent" MTD belt 2 to 1 or better. I bought my Cub Cadet when my MTD mower locked up just...

    Andy, relative to the other 37s that like the ammo, are they of similar vintage to the problem child? Sometime between 1957 and the early 70s Ithaca made a subtle change to the extraction, At least thats what my reasearch indicated. Also suggested...

    37s do that, the steel heads do not spring back like brass did, and many cheap loads are a bit spiky pressure wise. I would be sure your barrel is not over rotated or overly tight at the retainer. The extractor groove is only slightly wider than tbe...

    Note post 6, Mega is dead on. If you have the scope on the reciever of an 870 without doing something like he did, you have no crosshair to barrel alignment. That barrel is moving at every shot, no matter how tight the retaing cap is. Had a...

    If you haven't already request a tracking number and go to the FedEx site for details. You may be able to get helpful details from the delivery notes. Be persistent, sometimes it pays off.

    Quite good but easy to overcook. A bigger snake makes better eating because smaller portions will be overcooked before the crust browns. I don't much care for rat snakes but have a little one (less than 3') under the back porch. I had a big...
