    Actually not too well and only certain kinds. Friends haven’t had much luck with them and you never see an apple orchard. Peaches are another thing entirely. Grow like weeds and overbear like crazy if not pruned and thinned and the frost doesn’t get...

    You have a really tough situation there, and with 400 lbs. to dispose of it will take tons of lead so... out of the goodness of my heart and only out of concern for your well being.... I will let you ship a couple of 65# boxes to me. That way you...

    Yes I have, and in 38 special for sure and I think some .357 mag also. Worked fine. Don't recall the load but can look it up. Just have to be careful since it is concentrated, easy to double charge without load in the case looking much different....

    There was a clamp type tool used for pinball machines as I recall which was for sale. Air riveters have an anvil piece that has a donut shaped divot & pin on the bottom and dish shaped head on top and those were a replaceable parts. Maybe...

    Surprised and saddened by this news. Liked his posts, was blessed by his encouragement in my own brass reforming endeavors. He will be missed here and I'm sure in his family and community.

    The loss is great only because the love was great. I hope your heart will soon heal enough to let you savor the good memories without the pain making them unbearable.

    An approximation for how far most common extruded rifle powders can be safely reduced without getting into trouble or needing a different powder just for reduced loads. With 4895 you can reduce down to 60% according to Hodgdon: ...

    If bullet drops from mold .312 you can put GC on in a .314 die without sizing the bullet and it should seal the throat better than at smaller diameter. Most of the Russian and Chinese 7.62x54Rs run large, some as large as .316". The Finnish rifles...

    Size the bullets .314 and try 15-16 grains of Alliant #2400, or 18-20 grains of H- or IMR4227, or 20-22 grains of H- or IMR4198, or 21-26 grains of RL7. Without the GC you can have a nice plinker or small game load using 6-7 grains of either...

    My deal was my peach tree. 27 gallons of peaches the week of July fourth. I made so many jams, canned peaches, and frozen pies. I am still peached out but my friends think it’s great. Mrs Fishman keeps taking my jam in to work to give away.

    If I were in that shape, I would let the bear do what it will outside and make sure my steel entry doors were dead bolted. Then I would rest and heal.

    2 grains of Bullseye is a close approximation of factory loads. According to Hatcher's Textbook of Pistols and Revolvers (1935) on p. 340 he lists 2 grains of Bullseye with the 100-grain flatnosed bullet in the .32 Colt New Police for 730 fps at...

    That would have a non-heat-treated cylinder. I would not exceed 2.2-2.3 grains of Bullseye with the RCBS 98 SWC or similar.

    Any reason you can't use a 4" grinder with a cut off wheel on that welded bolt? Or even a grinder wheel and just grind it down? Might want to use water frequently to keep any rubber bushing from over heating. If you don't have that tool they can...

    Accurate 31-105T was aimed towards a faithful copy of original .32 Colt New Police and .32-20 factory bullets, having a flat nose for small game and tube magazine use. It has proven versatile and accurate.

    Rare gun to look for is an early Ruger Police Service Six in .380 Rimmed, which was rechambered using one of the 9mm cylinders from the French order circa 1980-83. The outer circumference of the cylinder is turned and faced back to clear the Ruger...

    Yes, PSA has always done me right and they make good stuff. I really like my .308 ar10 and need to work it out a bit more come to think of it. I’m glad the storm spared you and yours.

    If anyone is interested, PSA has a daily deal for a very similar kit to what Doug guy put together for $349 with free shipping. Same brace and barrel length but 6 handguard and none of the extras. Ready to build on your lower.
