    You might try softer boolits as I suggested. Simply no need to shoot diamonds and it can be detrimental to accuracy. Yes I know that condom bullets are harder than your quenched boolits but there is no way to compare shooting copper jackets and any...

    I read through this thread and a couple of things I didn't see mentioned, read back through it to see if I missed it. What does the bore slug? What is the as cast diameter? What are you sizing to? What are you using to size the boolits? An in...

    Geez, who said you were lying? I simply posted the metallurgy of a Pb/Sb alloy. No wonder I don't post anymore. Rick

    Something's amiss . . . What determines the time it takes a Pb/Sb alloy to reach it's final/max strength/hardness after quenching/HT is the percentage of Sb, the lower the Sb percentage the longer it takes to reach it's final BHN and 1.5% Sb is a...

    Harder ain't better because they're harder, in fact rarely so. If your shooting top end 454 loads perhaps, maybe, could be, possibly. How long did these 27 BHN boolits age harden? At what temp where they heat treated? Rick

    Dunno what's available for a Savage action but a quality trigger is perfectly reliable at 6 ounces. It is also quite safe when properly used and that's at the range and on the bench, never to be carried in the field. A quality trigger is also very...

    I for one will be extremely disappointed if I don't see groups that includes all the relevant data. What other reason could there be for following a nearly 400 post thread? Dunno if I would change the action as Tim suggested but the very first...

    I don't understand why all the who-ha about Brad's stock or what it's all about. I like it actually, it shows thought, individualism and pride of ownership, all very good things. Were it my rifle I would be quite proud to show up at the range with...

    I agree, your FFL is an idiot. Geez, did he have a rubber hose too? :shock: What happened with/to you is very common these days and your FFL should know this if his shoe size and IQ aren't the same number. Same thing happened to me a couple of...

    Nothing better than a borescope to know exactly what your looking at! Borescope = Priceless! Larry's suggestion is spot on, won't help in getting rid of leading that you may have now but will help tremendously on down the road in...

    The school bus batteries are the same as regular car batteries only larger for a heavier electric load (lights, bigger starter etc). The same with big rig truck batteries, just bigger but not different. The school bus batteries weren't the cause...

    You could add a regular battery charger to run off shore power or the generator, that's no problem but be sure to get a charger with automatic shut off feature. Some low end chargers don't and if the batteries are over charged you'll smell rotten...

    cbrick replied to a thread Solar setups in Our Town
    To run the 110 volt appliances you'll need an inverter to convert the 12v DC to 110 AC. Doing so works fine but is a heavy draw on the batteries. You can't run the 110 appliances straight off the batteries. Figure out the combined wattage of all 110...

    I also suggest a bank of DEEP CYCLE batteries . . . NOT car batteries. One deep cycle battery = fair - Two = better - Four = good - Six = best. This is for the CPAP strictly so you don't run down the batteries in the middle of the night. Remember...

    cbrick replied to a thread AR-10 Cast!!! in Cast Boolits
    Actually it's an Oehler. His rifle has some of the worst muzzle blast I've seen, even at 15 feet the start screen registers nothing but muzzle blast. No choice but to shoot through a blast shield which makes grouping very difficult. Rick

    No not BS, you have been told several times already that a lead alloy cannot gravity separate. Not because it's a joke but because it's a fact. You quote an 1897 article but do you suppose that it's possible the metals industry may have learned...
