    Cutting down cases like from the .45-90 to .45-70 can be a hit or miss. New cases for say .45-70 are usually short for the chamber. When you cut down the .45-90 you could be working with a case that is undersized in the diameter for your chamber...

    The problem using a tubing cutter is putting on to much pressure it crimp the case in and you need to do some work taking it out also the case has a slight taper and it's soft you will cut threads before it stays in the groove. This is more apt to...

    That's a very sweet looking drilling excello. It's got the perfect shotgun gauge and the perfect rifle cartridge for the frame. A truly balanced long gun in all respects.

    The problem with tightening the case neck with a bullet seated you are also compressing the portion of the bullet in the case making it smaller. The best way is like Don said. I only use a full-length sizing die on new cases after annealing them...

    That's a Mossberg bolt. One of 6. There were two series of these bolts done back in the late fifties an sixties. The main feature difference is the choke. Early had a choke tube you unscrewed completely, while the later models had a non-removable...

    CG, With all do respect a bushing crimp die is not the ideal thing to use for a PP bullet loaded in a case fired from a standard chamber. You might just as well use a roll crimp. Bushing dies are not tapered enough on the inlet and this could...

    Rich. I'm going to be playing around come this Spring with the puppy. Shooting it out of a 20 gauge SxS or 16 in a shot cup could be interesting. This is a 50 cal.

    Been shooting that one for a long time. It's my rabbit and squirrel gun. Very light and quick handling too. It's a Western Field model 30. Made in the late fifties and early sixties.

    Thanks DG. My first shotgun was a 16 for deer hunting in New England in 1964. I have learned though that if you want to truly have a lightweight field gun it MUST be built on a frame suitable for that gauge and all the inherent features that make it...

    There are more inexpensive shotgun gauges to shoot. 12 and 20 would be more efficient and economical. A sixteen is a true upland game shotgun and as I'm sure you have discovered much more off the shelf choices of shot and power than the16. If you...

    I use both Swiss and OE. By average I give the edge to OE. The fouling control with OE is easier than Swiss. I cant tell you the difference between the two what the velocity is, I don't pay attention to that. I look at the holes through the paper...

    Likely they are loaded with the manufacturer standard primer. Just load them for trap level ballistics. Reload and shoot again until the crimp blows out or burn through pin holes start to form where brass and paper meet.

    Correct JohB. It's the one and only manual they produced. I was very lucky a few years ago to come across this mint volume. The spine is in uncreased condition. I only open it just so far when using it.
