    I had JUST received a brand new Manson 9mm throating reamer that I had Dave modify from a solid nose rifle throater to a live pilot pistol throater. The rifle throater is ground larger than a 9mm pistol throater so it actually cuts .358+" so this...

    I've paid 60 per lb for COWW in the raw, and I was reasonably sure they were old enough to have no or very little non-lead WW. I wouldn't pay any more than that. ALSO, Smelting a ton of COWW is a ton of work, especially if you have 'small'...

    This has been the week for chamber weirdness it seems. Had a couple of problem children come in that would not chamber even factory ammo half the time. One was the cylinder of a S&W Model 22-4 of 1917 Classic. In .45acp. In the customer's own...

    Anyone that can run win10 can run Linux Mint. It is SUPER EASY to move from windows to Linux Mint. Download the free Linux Mint 19 Cinnamon iso, use a free program called Etcher and burn the iso to a usb stick which will then be bootable, you can...

    The 44 boolit in the OP's post is SUCH a more effective boolit for deer, there shouldn't even be a question comparing a smaller, faster, softer, j-word.

    29% - 43% is a TON of Carnauba wax and will cause some major problems with the lube. My recipe will work much better and it comes close to the consistency of original. molybdenum disulfide powder= is a lube in it's own. I seen this way before I...

    The absolute best way I have seen to choose 1911 recoil springs is by setting up a close target, 7yds, 21feet, and doing rapid dbl taps. When the two shots are 1 1/2" or close to that, that spring is correct for the gun, the load, and also the...

    I would bet the NOE 358 128 SWC would work in all your guns. It is the one that I went to when I had troublesome Ruger 9e that wouldn't chamber any Lee boolits from the molds I have. BUT, I would also recommend Arsenal for a custom mold...they are...
