    303Guy replied to a thread Marlin in 35 Rem in Leverguns
    I've mentioned in the past that my father hunted Cape Buffalo with a 35 Remington. The rifle was a pump action which liked because it was short and handy in the dense African bush. He went for heart shots though but once his shot missed all bone,...

    Welcome aboard, Yrmff!! The 30/30 Winchester is a very efficient cartridge and seems to be perfect for cast boolits. It takes a near full case of several slower powders and burns them at rather low pressures, ideal for cast. Ideal for lever...

    I don't understand Ruger's attitude. Maybe that's why their hornet model had such a bad reputation. Trouble is, that same reputation must surely have hurt their overall sales? I wouldn't touch a Ruger because of it. The CZ on the other hand has...

    This is exactly what happens. Being upwind may be worse than downwind because a vortex is formed between you and the pot. I have played with fire - literally - and even a rod will carry the flame up toward your hands, carried by a narrow vortex...

    I love the Lee hand press! I often use an adapter for 310 dies and use those Lyman die sets when I'm just piddling around, much easier than the Lyman tong tool but I have one problem with it... the short hand grip. I thought I had once seen a Lee...

    Looking good! Mild loads with patch could be a fail if the patch doesn't come off cleanly at the muzzle. This means you may need to work up until it does, at which point accuracy should improve. You may need to experiment with and without patch...

    Just enough 600 grit to dull the sharp edges of the rust pits and you're good to go. That would be two or three fire-lap rounds or a few strokes with grit on a cloth patch - toward the muzzle only. My most accurate rifle bore. Bullet fired...

    A sewer pipe is merely a challenge. Firelap to remove the sharp edges of the pits then go fine polishing compound to just plain paper. Use fine grit for the initial fire-lapping. Just two or three shots. Or as Bara has suggested, hand lapping. ...
