    I'm with Larry, Petrol & Powder on this one. I value accuracy more than velocity. IF I can fire 50 consecutive rounds with no degradation of grouping, then higher velocity is no detriment, but if accuracy cannot be maintained, all is mental...

    My original model LCPs are not the first year production. As my flight instructor at NAS Whiting Field, Pensacola, FL told me years ago, "never fly the "A" model of anything!" Also, I was in another life an engineer at Ruger, Newport, NH and I...

    To my way of thinking, the .303 British would be ideal for a No.3. Because the action is strong I would go ahead and use a normal .30 cal. barrel in 10" twist for the greatest flexibility in bullet choice. Use the SAAMI-dimensioned .303 British...

    This 100% If not a face shield. I'm ugly enough as it is and besides I have a mustache counting on me for protection. No fairy but close. Forgot to properly pre-warm a cast iron ladle and got recoil and pot went "whump" pretty good when ladle...

    I bought my powder from smoke. Because he tests with shake and bake. I did the smash test with times provided. The PC adhesion was surprisingly good. I pre-heat to 400 using a setting point that was tested with a thermometer, so am up to temp...

    Is it a coincidence that while halfway through reading your post, the daily verse popped on my phone and it was this?? “Therefore, confess your sins to one another , and pray for one another, that you may be healed and restored."

    I have 4 small flat rate boxes full of plumbers lead ingots. This came from cast iron pipe joints and toilet boots. I have not had it tested, but from everything I have read and seen in my experience it is very soft. Most will say it is 99% pure....

    When I worked in the industry .22 LR standard velocity and .38 wadcutter were 1-1/2% antimonial lead whereas .22 LR high velocity, .38 Special +P and 9mm, .40 and .45 ACP cores were 3% antimonial lead. 12-ga. 00 buckshot today is usually 6%...

    The current issue of The Fouling Shot has an excellent article in which .38 Special wadcutters were tested in a custom, heavy-barrel PPC gun fitted with optical sight out to 200 yards. It is an interesting read which blows away much of the popular...

    It can register high if the tip is touching the bottom of the pot. People have mentioned that if melting WW's to skim the zinc ones they have to make sure none get pinned to the bottom of the pot. The molten metal spreads the heat around but the...

    Fore-end hanger should not touch barrel. Common technique to "free float" barrel on No.1 is to drive a wedge between the hanger and barrel to bend it away slightly from the barrel and to pull the wedge out. Adjust bend until you can slide a...

    Some people on this thread are confusing aging with rotting and they are not the same obviously. I too have shot a lot of deer, averaging 3 or 4 a year. Some I shot and had in the freezer within a couple hours. Others were at deer camps where the...

    Agree that the Mods could lock and archive this thread. There are other threads addressing loading of the various .32 cartridges for field and recreational use, and perhaps those could be merged. I would like to see a new sticky combining all of...

    If properly stored, USGI Ball M1, Ball M2 and APM2 ammunition of WW2 manufacture should still be 100% reliable. I am still using FA and LC ammunition made in the 1940s, which has produced normal pressure, velocity and accuracy, functioning reliably...

    Around here even the WW2-era corrosive ammo brings $1 per round. More than that if packed in the 8-round M1 Garand enbloc clips and bandoliers. If clipped pack figure $1 per round plus $2 per clip. WW2 dates are more collectible and if in clean...
