    That wouldn't be a bad idea. It appears half of the threads were removed, leaving little for that vent to hang on to.

    My revolver and rifle prefer different loads. You can shoot the same load in both, but working up what works best for each gun is the best route.

    That's a gawdawful countersink he cut for the vent liner. You get what you pay for! The general opinion of most other builders is, Jackie can take $700 worth of parts, and make you a fine $300 gun.

    Since the Winchester mold was not included, that break in solution was not available. Although there is a very few rust spots on the grips, the general finish is amazingly clean. My GO TOO lube is ATF. I've been using it extensively for years with...

    We've got a lot of griz and black bear activity here, too. Friend wants me to go shoot one out of his apple trees. Problem is, they only come at night, and I don't need the hassle of accidentally killing a griz.

    If the finish is completely cured, you will leave no steel wool particles in the finish. I finished a lot of very expensive exhibition grade stocks with steel wool where such a blemish would be disaster. Never a problem.

    I use some Bullplate Lube on the mold. Careful application with a Q tip. Keep it out of the cavity. I think synthetic chainsaw 2 cycle oil is the same thing.

    I picked this up on spec. and I cant figure out how it works. At first I thought it was complete but now I'm not so sure. The only loose (separate) part is the decapping pin/holder/neck expander. I presume the primer is balanced on the case while...

    If you didn't start out with well seasoned wood to make a stock, you may as well figure on starting over. An uncured stock will warp, twist, and do all kinds of nasty things if you expect the rifle to group. If you used Truoil too heavily, it...

    I've burned 16 lb of Titegroup in the .45acp using sized and Felix lubed bolts with no leading issues, so I don't know that I'd blame the powder first thing. Leading the full length of the barrel is usually a size/obduration issue so the first thing...

    The first thing I do when working on feeding issues in any 1911 pattern pistol is to load up 10 dummy rounds of each style boolit you'd like to use, take the recoil spring out of the pistol, and then cycle full mags through the gun by hand while...

    I'm in the mixed bag camp. I have two rifles that I am very particular about. One is my old high power ar with about 4,500 rounds through it and I'm starting to have to chase the lands a little to keep it around 1/2 MOA. The other is a custom 28...

    I only REALLY care about hunting accuracy from field positions. But to get there, I'll spend the time at the bench to get the rifle under 1 Moa out to 400 yards. It's only after I'm confident in the rifle and the load that I feel it's worth putting...

    Advertising in the magazines is not cheap. Probably several thousand a month for a big ad. With the internet, lots cheaper to spread the ads around there.

    I've had Hancocks on my last two trucks. Current set has been on nearly ten years, and are still in great condition. I don't drive all that much though.
