    I also would leave it as how you received it. To me a refinished gun is almost like it was someone else's but in it's original condition you know it was in the family. On another forum I was said to be very American in thought for not refinishing a...

    I relined a Stevens 44 and it shot great. Also relined a 30-06 Ruger #1 to 22LR and it shoots almost one hole 5 shot groups at 50 yds. The #1 is my custom fun squirrel rifle.

    I've owned and used Dillon 450 and 550's, Dillon 650 and 1050. Plus Lee 3 and 4 hole press. I still own a Dillon 650 and 1050 plus the Lee 4 hole turret press. If someone is constantly tinkering with a Dillon press it isn't adjusted right to start...

    I met Kent when he set up at the Ohio Gun Collectors show in Columbus OH. I bought a lot of bulk gun powder from him in the mid 1980's before he moved out west. A good friend of mine worked for Kent processing all his 50 BMG cases. He still talks of...

    I use 30 and 50 caliber ammo cans. The size depends on the amount of each caliber. I down sized and kept only 500 rounds of each caliber. I keep all my loaded rounds in ammo cans also.
