    Looking for a .408 groove barrel I can rechamber. Prefer a 28-34" length , with a 1:16 twist. Please PM if you have something you would like to move, rechambering a Remington marked Swede roller currently chambered in 8x58RD. Thanks.

    Those gas checks by themselves are worth almost that by themselves anymore.

    I'm ten years behind you and generally feel the same way. I really like to reload and shoot, getting less interested in hunting all the time, still like to be out, just getting more reluctant to actually pull the trigger on anything as time goes...

    Thanks. Do these tubes go with them? I'm not real familiar with shotgun reloaders, but these tubes seem small for 209 type primers.

    I got these in a deal to get something I wanted, package deal, all or nothing. No idea what they go to, some kind of Pacific primer feeder trays and tubes. Any information appreciated.

    Do you mind if I ask when you decided this. Sorry if it seems like a personal question, but everybody's situation is different. We're seeing unprecedented interest among shooters, both new and experienced, but I wonder how long that will last?...

    Well here's the update. Spoke with Jes. Not able to have this roller rebore to 40-65 Winchester. The problem is the shoulder of the current caliber. The reamer for the 40-65 will not clean up the shoulder in the chamber. No mention about the wall...

    I was surprised to learn there was an actual season on them. Always figured they were like coyotes and everybody was on board that the only good one was a dead one. This sounds like something I could get into.

    Yeah, as I understand it, these had a system where you could adjust them for different shells, light to heavy. I need to open it up and check it. I did look into it and they were offered with this choke system and without, but mine has a nickle...

    Too bad. Only semi auto .22 rifle I would trust to be reliable besides the Ruger 10/22.

    1. Bring back the 788. 2. I like the anniversary edition of the Model 8, while we're at it, let's do the Model 14/141, same calibers. 3. The Nylon 66 never should have stopped production in the first place, if Remington wasn't going to,...

    I have had exactly one shotgun with a poly choke on it and didn't have it long, never really gave it much thought. A few years ago, I bought an autol loader, JC Higgins Model 60, supposedly the first gas operated autoloading shotgun and made by...

    I have a bunch of 3" #4 steel waterfowl loads. Might have to get a caller and make some of those decoys. How do you set them up? In open fields or in trees?

    This is going to be used in a Winchester Model 70 Heavy Varmint I got specifically to shoot cast at 100 yards with, I seriously doubt it will see 40 grains of anything in this endeavor. More likely charges of Unique, Herco, 2400, etc.

    We have them fly around the house all the time. I swear, they know if you're dangerous to them or not. If I'm just out in the yard, they'll fly right over and land close. If I happen to get the shotgun I keep in the shop when I hear them, they...

    We were in the neighborhood, so I stopped by Academy Sports, pretty scarry, only ammo in the whole place was for our five boxes of .22 LR shot shells. There was one handgun and a muzzle loading rifle on display. As I was about to walk out, I...

    I still have some of that SRP 7.62x39 brass around that I got to shoot in a bolt action. Always wondered why a little case like that is loaded with large primers. We're in the rotten weather phase of things when day light is short and when I'm...

    It's long been a practice for Hornet shooters to use small pistol primers. I only shoot light cast loads in the Hornet. I did shoot up a bunch of somewhat questionable large pistol primers in my practice loads in the 7x57 (135 grain cast, 10...

    Been curious for a while and with shortages, figured this would give some versatility to what I can use. I bought some of the .308 brass from Graf's that uses small rifle primers rather than large. I want to see if they make any difference with...

    Sounds like a lot of trouble to have nail polished pretty bullets. Why not just shoot the lubed ones like they were intended?

    I tried this when I first got a .222. I figured it was enough trouble and has a high enough rejet rate that I'd rather just buy .222 brass, it really isn't that difficult to find, at least it wasn't then. This is a good thing to know you can...
