    A place I worked at years ago converted SA Rem LH 700's to 223 by bushing the bolt face and using a Sako extractor. They always worked fine, never heard of any issues. You're in new territory with the Mauser though. You may want to get a few bolt...

    There's a lot of info out there, I wouldn't run hunting ammo w/o the adjustable plug. Another option is an extended plug that increased the volume of the gas cylinder. saw one and it worked well. Proper lubrication with grease is essential for...

    What kind of group did you get in inches? What size group do you expect? They aren't known for great accuracy but some do very well. They are minute of deer rifles out to 150 yds. Shoot some 3 shot groups instead of 5. The weight of the...

    Same thoughts here. Too many drink from the wrong cup and cling to it as the only answer or way to go. All things man made are fragile at best and downright poor otherwise. That's the reason things shift so violently when a crises emerges. Those...

    I've read the difference on the variations on scoops, tx. I'll check them on a scale before using one if I do use one. I don't have them in front of me and 2 of the 6 I have are for shotgun which I have yet to try. IIRC one may have metal scoops...

    Which era Lee loaders do you use and or prefer? I ask as I've seen some older kits going for the price of new ones, same calibers. Are the older ones better looking, do they make better ammo? I've a few older Lee kits in decent shape in the...

    If you have a standard magnum it should work and I'd try it in 303 Brit and 30-40 Krag, if you have either of those.

    30calflash replied to a thread Tracfone in Our Town
    Depends on the type of tracfone you purchase, how much you plan to use it. I had a flip phone for quite a while and was very happy with it although ran light on minutes a couple times at the end of the 90 days. Had to upgrade and went to a low...

    With the Reloder series of powder don't use the number to determine whether it is slow or fast burning. Use the chart as shown from Dimner. Many of the Reloder series powder recently available have a lower number but are slower burning.You're not...

    Found a 586 4" in the safe I'd purchased, put away and forgot about. PD trade in w some bluing missing and a few rust specks on the backstrap. That's what got me to look at it closer. Took it out thereafter and shot it a fair amount. It's funny...
