    You learn something new every day. I had heard of the fluted chambers, but had no earthly idea of why they would do that. Very interesting. Thanks 44man.

    Larry, that is fantastic, and far better than anything I have ever accomplished. I think I'll bust out one of my good Gurkha cigars on account of this. Wow. Just wow.

    What I would say is that if you don't have a BHN hardness tester, then don't worry about BHN. What I have always figured was a rule of thumbnail LOL! If my thumbnail can barely scratch it and I mean barely, then it's just about right for popping a...

    goodsteel replied to a thread Crickett accuracy? in Rimfire Area
    Where's Jim when we need him! LOL! I have one of these little Crickett rifles, and it's a fun thing. However, the accuracy is about 2" at 50 yards. That could be because of the short sight radius. It could be because those sights freakin suck....

    Aha! You have both barrels for that 20? OK, well how about spending your hard earned dollar on a new set of stocks for that baby? There is no differance in the action after all, and 20 gauge is a serious contender. Not only that, but you have both...

    Well, I'm not new to casting myself, but I will echo your apreciation to both Rick and Larry. However, I don't think Larry was saying that there is no way that you can achieve high speed shooting with your alloy. You may very well do it. But let...

    Assuming everyone has swords, it is the man with a pen who can bring all those arms together as one force. Why do we hate mainstream media so much? Because what they write threatens to remove the sword from our hands. The power of inspirational...

    Well, I don't know about you Larry (you have been doing this a few more years than I have LOL!) but this mold that Al cut me is just about the nicest mold I have ever cast with. I'm taking a break right now from my second run, and it's absolutely...

    Oh yeah. Darn. I was hoping to cheat and shoot these on Christmas holiday. Oh well, 2015 it is. OK, all kidding aside, I'm going to let these boolits season up for two weeks before I shoot them.

    I will Dick. But there is a process here that must be maintained. These boolits must now sit for 6 months to properly age harden before I can shoot them.

    I started with my basic 98.5Pb/1.5Sb alloy but I was unhappy with the fillout, so I added 6" of lead free solder (has a stiff of copper in it;)) This is how the boolits engrave the rifling (I made a gauge by cutting just the throat of the XCB...

    Well, there's no need to change everything. I was just giving my opinion and throwing it in the hat. I mean, is there a way we can just tell them that every swinger coming is going to be shooting 50BMG or less so that we can have freedom to loosen...

    Mike, I think what the fellers are saying is that we care about getting together, shaking hands and enjoying a little comradery. Perhaps some formal competitions might branch off if this meeting, but for the moment, I think all we are after is a...

    Rifle has to be in a caliber larger than .357 fellers. 7.62X39 doesn't cut it. They are trying to hammer people into a hole where only pistol cartridges exist. 30 carbine is out too. My first thought was the 30 Herrett (I have the dies and...

    I am trying to come up with some prizes. There may be lead, a mold, reloading equipment, or possibly even a firearm. No promises though. We are still in the planning stage.
