    Looks good. I found hydrogen peroxide bleaches bone like that snowy white and doesn't make it flake like chlorine bleach is said to. Whatever you used, it looks good.

    The problem with the 16 gauge is the only loads you can find commonly are #8 shot, fine for doves, but not much else. I cleared out an estate sale of an avid shotgunner and got enough 16 gauge stuff to last the rest of my life. Quite a bit of #5...

    Well that sucks, spend all that money and still have issues, I just got off the phone with Troy at Marbles, he said I needed to get the angle of the tang since they do not list these Swede rollers as part of their offering listed manufactures that...

    I think I'm starting to lean to starboard on the Marbles solution, costly, but simple and effective. Thanks all.

    I have used 12 and 20 gauge. I have two 16 gauges for some reason but haven't used the 16 yet. They seem to work just fine for me, though I've mostly used them for round ball loads.

    Question Boz, In reading their description on the sight, it says that the 3" is too short for the Remington roller. I have a Swede Carl Gustav in the 8x58Rd, and I have a Remington and a Husquvarna in the 12.7x44R, so the 3" will work on the...

    Guy La Pourqe, I just had the chance to look at the two websites my friend in BC suggested, frankly I think you are in deep do do, frankly both those businesses would not survive operating here in the US. They look to be so poorly inventoried,...

    I have a 50-70 Govt Trapdoor Springfield set aside for this fall's deer hunting in Indiana. Should make a good enough hole in a deer if I should see one within 100 yards or so for accuracy sake.

    My goal is to get a good enough group to take it back to 300 yards shooting in NRA Highpower matches at my gun club. After that, I'll see if it has enough to make it to 600 yards down at Camp Atterbury's full course range.

    First shots with the 311413 bullets in a 308Win AR10. The sights were still set up for a 200 yard match scheduled for next week so a wee high for 100 yards but I was looking for a group size to build from first. Fully cycled and good enough...

    more brass by weight for the scrap recycle bucket. I'm not interested in trying to develop specific load data for that type of cartridge when standard 9x19 brass cases are all over the place.

    Nice job there Chev. I noticed at 65 I was bruising up quite a bit more than at 55 even though im not on any thinners. Just amazing how one can lose the density in the layering of skin tissue. One of these days im sure I'll be shooting everything...

    Wolfer, here is an update on my trimming activities. The Longer Foster trimmer showed up today, along with a #8 collet and a .505 pilot. Of course had to deal with mounting it so it could be used properly so I had a 5x18x3/4 piece of MDF from the...

    Wolfer, I didn't buy dies for my 8x58Rd either, I did fire form my hungarian brass neck size and had Lee make me a custom factory crimp so I can add a little neck tension without squeezing the you know what out of the boolit. My boolits out of the...
