    Looking for a 16ga 2 1/2 or 2 3/4" press. Lee Load All would be fine, or whatever. Money is tighter than usual, really would like to trade if at all possible. I have GOBS of fishing tackle, especially big plastics for musky/saltwater. Other...

    At some point you and I need to have a pow wow,,,,my limited testing of 296/110 was a little less accurate than 2400, and the recoil was quite a bit snappier, but, I only had time to test two or three load levels. Im always willing to try it...

    No, not throw the base away. In post number five Gianni posted a link to a very good page where Junior documented not only the problem with the 92A's being ill fitting at times, but several other problem areas with barrel thread depths and sloppy...

    I am going to have to get around to trying my K31 in highpower. I have a good load that will stay pretty close to an inch at 100yds, but that's shooting with a 24x scope from the bench, not with iron sights from highpower positions. The load is...

    Over and over I see where guys that have bought the NcStar 2-7 LER scope have been very happy with it. I bought a couple on the advice of Madsenshooter and have been very pleased with the performance. When a fellow like Dutchman thinks highly of...

    A touch slower, more like RL19, or at least it's supposed to be. No doubt it varies a bit depending on the fire you put under it, and with a magnum primer, you're probably right. I noted in my recent Palma bullet experiments that with a magnum...

    Unusual pot there Mark. The Electro Melter. Nice stack of 311284s there. I'd take some pics of my setup, but I don't think you'd like seeing the mess. I have a homemade bench under there somewhere!

    "Get a 311413"! I don't know about others here, but I've tried a lot of different things to get that bullet to shoot accurately above 1600. Harder alloys, slower powders, etc. Even at 2000fps you'll likely be hitting a couple targets away from...

    Lots of oddball threads on a Krag. I'm told this is because our early armories were closely copying French threads, which were close to metric, but not the same as today's standard. You can still find a few of the old taps and dies, and there's a...
