    The HF 7x10 does have a power lead screw and a gear set for different threads but when you single point threads on stock in the 7/8" area you have to make a lot of very fine cuts to keep from chattering. I threaded one 7/8" rod to 7/8x14 and decided...

    rbuck351 replied to a thread Remington model 8 in Factory Rifles
    I am rather fond of the M8 Rems. I have 3, one in 35 and 2 in 30. One of the 30s was my first deer rifle and I used it when 13 or 14 to take my first deer.

    When you get into a flock of ptarmigan or grouse, a suppressor on a 22lr using CCI quiet and you can usually get several before the survivors figure out they are in danger. I have been hoping they would drop the license for suppressors but I think...

    If your time has any monetary value, get the 7x14 mini lathe. HF, Grizzly and others sell the same lathe (different colors). You will find more uses for this than you can even think of. A short list, sizer dies, case trimming, 22lr derimming and...

    I didn't know 30 carbine was that hard to find. Most of the larger gun stores seem to have some in stock. I ended up with several hundred loaded rounds and even more empties with nothing to shoot them. Maybe I can find a TC barrel to use them. An...

    The first time I got caught by a shortage was a primer shortage in the late 70s IIRC. It hasn't happened since and I will not out live my current supply of primers, powder, lead, bullets or brass. There is an auction place near me that frequently...

    I have always used melting as it is easier to type and even easier to say than, what was that word again, oh! Smelting. He is right though but it is a moot point. A lot of things written on here are sometimes hard to get the point so you have to...

    A HF 7x14 is about the handiest piece of equipment on my reloading bench after the loading presses and costs about what a new rifle costs.

    Well I still have too many and in August I will turn 79. I have at present given away to my grandkids about 30 guns. Back in about 1977 I got the bug to get into Contenders, at one point I think I had about 15 different calibers. Of course I had to...
