    Is there a similar presentation for a M14SA? Have a LRB barreled action to put in completion status. Had this since '08 so time to finish it. Only problem then is finish the M1(from '05) first or M14SA. Don't handle dilemmas real well. Thanks.

    I've done maybe 200 or 250 trigger jobs on M1's or M-14's. Everyone one that has doubling issues was corrected by process laid out in post two. I have only shot a limited number of Federal primers in an M1. I have fired a large number of...

    Doubling is common with both the M1 and M-14 triggers that have been stoned a little to much or heavily worn. The fix is simple and only requires a small piece of sand paper. The cause is your finger bump firing the trigger. ...

    Take a black magic marker and color the case than insert into the chamber and rotate the case. You will be able to see were the contact is. Once you do that you can figure out why.

    Heat treating doesn't work that way. Besides heat treating comes in two flavors, through hardening and case hardening with the old rifles being made of early grades of weaker steel (with BP rifles usually being even weaker) and being case hardened...

    I like both the heart and liver but I would not grind liver and add to hamburger. Hearts no issue but the taste and color of liver is not a good mix with hamburger in my opinion. Liver is reserved to liver and onions at my house.

    I have never used the RCBS PP swager so I don't know if this is even possible to create issues with 30 cal cases. With the Dillon 600 Super Swager on 223 cases the inside support is small enough that if you over swage the pocket you can collapse...

    I don't know what's the big deal about those short chambers but it seems that most everything is geared toward them, reamers, dies, etc. When building my 38-55 I insisted on (and still do!) having the CORRECT long chamber but it seems that most of...
