    Maybe not???? Seems there may not have been total negligence when designing the .375 even though it will slip right into a 38-55 and seem to chamber just fine, this might lead someone (probably has!) to fire a .375 in a 38-55 rifle such as that...

    Oh! The memories that just came flooding back. Be strong and calm to reassure her and don't take anything personally. This will all be a pleasant memory soon.

    Other than with throats that are undersized, what would be the benefit of reaming them? Having slugged them and measured with calipers, I know it isnt the most accurate measurement, but its not completely useless right? I measured .433 x4 and...

    It will take a while to recover your grip strength as you will want to protect the stump for a while as its healing. Don't rush too fast to do pistol shooting with your right hand. But consider this as a perfect opportunity to reinforce your...

    I've heard it called everything from lama spit to camel dung, but "plastic" sure sounds better. Remove any traces possible before adding to any pot. The smell will run you and the neighbors away from the job at hand, not to mention the mess left...

    You sure got that right!!!! In fact it was a down-right dumb thing to do! The least they could have done was slightly increase the case size or maybe the rim slightly or even maybe add a belt, ANYTHING but what they did.

    Sheet lead has lots of surface area per weight. If stored or used exposed to the atmosphere there will be lots of oxides. As with all pb oxides, lots of fluxing will reclaim most of it. Don't be in too big a rush to skim and discard them. You...

    Finished the book a while back. It was interesting. A little different than I expect, but some good insight into the model 94 and its uses in 30-30. Not much in the way of history of its use though. I would recommend it to anyone that is...

    I think this is why some Uberti owners have complained of accuracy problems with the 38-55, they mistakenly assume something is wrong with the rifle when it's nothing more than feeding it the wrong ammo! The newer model Winchester/Browning 1885...

    You seem to not know true moisture content. Look about you for someone who might possibly have a wood moisture meter and measure true content.
