    abunaitoo replied to a thread Lyman Alaskan Scope in Our Town
    They go for a good price on evil bay. But I'm thinking this one is not worth that much. I didn't think these old scopes were filled with gas. Is there a way to tell how old it is?????

    abunaitoo started a thread Berdan to Boxer in Our Town
    Friend gave me some 8mm Lebel shells that someone converted from Berdan to Boxer. Haven't tried them yet. Strange thing about these, is they didn't close off the two Berdan flash holes. Just drilled a Boxer hole. So now there are three holes. I...

    When I size my Lyman 6.5, some parts are not showing signs of touching the sizer. I PC them and they shoot fine. I wanted to cast them bigger, so that when I size them all sides are touched/sized. Want the round as possible. Them PC them. ...

    Because PC does not use lube, would it be OK to size a boolet to much, and just PC it????? I have some .329 to .331 8mm. I was thinking of sizing them down to .326. Lube grooves will probably get smashed in. But with PC, it wouldn't...

    I could use a Lyman globe sight, but I have a bunch of globe sights that don't dovetail on the barrel. I'll check out Buffalo arms.

    I'm looking for a globe target front sight base, that goes into a dovetail on the barrel. .22 Springfield 87A. I found one made by Williams, but it's made for the Williams globe sight. I've looked on the Lyman site, Brownell's, Midway, Graff,...

    I noticed this scope is heavy. I'll see if I can clean it up better. Caps, and focus are stuck. Put a drop of PB Blaster on them and letting it soak.

    abunaitoo replied to a thread Soot on the neck in Cast Boolits
    Accuracy is good. I have a tuff of dacron over the powder. But I did before I annealed. Only thing different is the necks were annealed. Maybe I shouldn't have done it, but I didn't want the necks to split. Reloaded over five times before...

    No one else shooting 6.5 Arisaka???? Didn't weigh the boolets. Put a tuff of dacron filler instead. So far I've had the best luck with 15.0, I4198. 2400 was close, but I4198 was more consistent. 6 shots at 100yds. Off the bench with rest. ...

    So I tried it today. Didn't notice any difference. Could be I used the wrong paper or it was to small. Tried it in a 6.5X50 Arisaka. Paper was the thinnest I had on hand. Dot was from a hole punch, so it wasn't covering the whole bottom. But...

    I have one of those. It's missing the measuring tube. I like it better than the B&M because it doesn't have the spring to close the lever. On most of my B&M. I changed the spring. I think the tube is larger in diameter.

    They are crimped, but I'm using the crimp on the seating die. Haven't gotten around to making a Lee FC die yet. I guess, maybe, I made the neck to soft.
