    I was going to suggest the same thing, a spacer at the rear of the mag like what Remington did with the 742 in short calibers like the 308. You could use a piece of wood with double side tape until you find the right thickness.

    I need 240v in the garage, my welder is 240v. I should have looked at the label on the Spool when they pulled it. During our conversation, he said it was 2/2 (it is not 00/2) Now there is three conductors, two with black insulation and one with...

    gunloads took over the ABT website when the previous owner abandoned it. All the gunloads website forums are going through software upgrades. Currently, there appears to be some issues with logging in with samsung and/or android devices.

    I have 4 or 5 boxes of Winchester factory 225 ammo if your interested might be some brass too. I'll have to look for it as I'm in the process of moving. Let me know if I should look for it.

    Well, for the money I have in this gun, it is no sweat to destroy the receiver...The gunsmith did say it was a bit soft, but was fine for cast bullets..I just don't know and value mine or someone else's Face and hands to be worth more than $100....
