    If a ragged old rug or carpet ia available these make great pellet or arrow stopper fillers. A fair sized cardboard box stuffed with squares cut to fit has served me well at various times. Wrap tightly with duct tape and remember to cover with a...

    I'm paring down my bucket list as that bucket looms closer, but a Krag still rests comfortably near the top.

    Practically any centerfire high velocity rifle round is too much for inside a home scenarios. The East Germans developed some 7.62X39 rounds with bullets composed of a thin jacket filled with a resin core. They loaded it just strong enough to...

    If the 7.62X51 Spanish Mausers were still available for less than 150 USD in very good condition I'd consider buying one, but anything higher than that would be paying a premium for a reworked rifle that is worth less to me than if it were still in...

    You might try the 17.2 gr .22 pellets. If a rifle breaks the sound barrier when using the standard 14.3 gr pellets the heavier pellet would likely be a good deal slower at the muzzle and might print tighter groups as well. With my pump up...

    The U S Chief of Ordnance arranged with Mausers partners and legal representatives to pay royalties on those features lifted from the Mauser. Front locking lugs were not one of these because Mauser had not invented these. Bolt actions with front...

    M80 ball as standardized is not a very high pressure cartridge. Long range heavy bullet rounds on the other hand often generate much higher pressures.

    A tid bit of information. Much was made of some of Saddam's troops being found to be armed with M16 rifles. Liberalistas were claiming the USA had armed Saddam's regime. Turned out the M16 rifles found were Viet Nam era rifles actually sold off by...

    The Soviet 5.45 had a nose cavity that caused wounds similar to a hollow point varmint bullet. It was nick named "the poison bullet" because Afghan rebels hit just about anywhere were not likely to survive due to almost complete lack of medical...

    I had high pressure signs with a .303 once. I realized the chamber neck was way too tight. That being unlikely to be normal with a milspec chamber I made a scraper from brass tubing by cutting saw tooth notches in one end. After soaking the...

    Thanks for the information. I'm assuming you've function tested this load in AK or AK clones as well as the SKS. I've used 4227 in reduced 7.92X57 loads for a short barreled Persian Mauser carbine and a friend has used it for .303 loads for the...

    Correct. I've tried to explain this many times in the past. An infringement is not a legal issue so long as the manufacturer reaches an agreement with the inventor. The U S Chief of Ordnance negotiated for payments to Mauser by way of his legal...

    I'd as soon have a dedicated survival rifle and a hi capacity all metal handgun as to carry a semi auto rifle in the supposed post apocalypse scenarios. A over under Savage with .223 rifle barrel over a 12 ga shot barrel would be far more useful...

    This video might come in handy. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U3_sZz3NNTo You can sometimes find original or reprint manuals for the 717 on Ebay. A CD with PDF files is another option. Crosman makes PDF files of manuals available on their...

    How many paper patch loads exceed 2500 FPS, much less 3,000+? How many paper patched .303 boolits were driven by a full charge of Cordite Mk1? How many paper patched Boolits have you put through a structural steel I beam Web? The higher the...

    Early testing of jacketed bullets used with the .303 with Mk1 Cordite resulted in many jacket separations and blown through cores. In further testing they drilled a tiny hole nearthe base of the bullet and observed a spiral pattern of atomized lead...

    I've read that the original .45 Colt revolver cartridge in its balloon head case black powder loading was significantly more powerful with a higher velocity than the standard smokeless powder loads. The smokeless powder load used a lower case...

    A friend used to build these for people and I got the chance to testfire several variations. Some were heavier than they looked while others were very light and handy. I have a lower with butt stock here now, I'm putting together a lefthand lace...

    The Crosman M1 Carbine is based on the V350 action. There is a pop off valve that doubles as a probe to push the BBs past a retaining spring. If its not moving all the way forwards the BBs may hang up on the spring or some air pressure be bled off...
