    I said "don't use bullets over 175 gr". I meant jacketed bullets. Over that will slam the works and beat up your gun. Cast boolets are loaded way down, so no worry. I'll have to admit tho, that I've never shot cast in my M1. There's no...

    Alstep replied to a thread Brothers in Our Town
    Squeaky wheel gets the oil! Your complaining paid off nicely. Looks like an old Atlas lathe in nice clean condition. Sure was nice of your brother to do that. That lathe will come in so handy for making all kinds of small parts. After a...
