    I have had decent results with Lyman #2 alloy, copper gas check and powder coating (shake-n-bake) 70 grain NOE .225 cast with 24.5 grains of Varget, CCI small rifle primer. Fired from a Ruger Mini-14 with 1:7 twist. No idea of the velocity but...

    Shipped what's been bought so far. Want to sell the rest so added small pewter ingot to the main items. More stuff for same money! Gun show coming up so I'll probably close this and take it there to sell whatever isn't sold by this weekend.

    The dreaded internal lock—a.k.a. Hillary Hole—began in 2002 with the 66-6, the Model 66-7 featured a two-piece barrel and more internal lock mechanisms. Smith & Wesson dropped the Model 66 from production in 2005. You might ask them if they...

    Is gun blued or stainless? S6 doesn't ring any bells, they made a 66, 586, 486, the -7 is a change number, the A20 probably a rack number, is there a more full serial number, probably with a letter prefix, pictures would help. You might be able...

    Both of the 1934s I have produce 0.012" copper indent on the "C" size copper in the gov't gage and smack the primers harder than most modern 9mms. Mine also feed anything, JHPs, WFNs, etc. To ddcrawford, if your Dad's bringback produces light...

    small bit of aluminum foil or fine steel wool as a thread locker is the simple solution. Drill and tap a locking set screw is the better one, a lot of molds come with an allen head set screw as a standard feature. Lube will help. It is the plate...

    My feeling exactly. There was a show on preppers called Preppers and because the extremes are the most interesting the people on that show were at the far ends of "interesting". Spending the weekend in the concrete bunker under the garage going...

    You prepare for what you expect. Best preparation is mental. How would I deal with _________? I expect to get use out of my investment in time, money and labor in regular use not only if society breaks down. So what fills in that blank tends to...

    Are there capture papers, original holster or other collectible WW2 militaria with it? Very simple, rugged, reliable guns. I have two. Probably the very best of the WW2 bring backs. When I was in Italy I was instructed by the Carabinieri...

    I don't use that powder much but everything I have heard or read says it needs pressure to burn correctly. So not good for reduced loads, very good in a narrow band of top end loads. Myself I don't like the hand abuse so I seldom want a full power...

    Well I have deprimed 1000 of the 38 specials. 500 more to go. I normally just do a squirt of dawn. Maybe a seconds worth. About like doing a sink full of dishes in the bad old days before automatic dishwashers. :-) I estimated that as around...
