    The only caution I can offer is to watch you thumb placement near the lock of a percussion rifle . It doesn't bleed when you get a cap fragment in the joint because it gets cauterized but it hurts like ........it's bad for several days . Of course...

    I've had a series of Michigan numbers calling about 2-3 times a week . I mostly ignored or refused the calls . " We have a special offer for you because you stayed in one of our resorts....." I started answering with " hey I'm glad you called !...

    There's a truth I've not been able to word ! I've had several nose pour 45s and I'm pleased with them . The brass mould has had a fitful learning curve but has been as good a mould and as easy to cast as any base pour moulds . That includes as...

    Rural NV is nice . It's about 10 min to shoot 100-150 in a state/county gravel pit . About 30-45 min out in the desert or a 20 min boat ride and you can shoot as far as you can see . I've set in a duck blind and lost sight of 100ft building over...

    Tim I see a brake and slip roll in your future . The slip roll will need a set of flange tools . I suspect that much like many of your day to day tools that you will have to make a few custom brake radius feet . Probably a spot welder electrode...

    Don't worry about using maximum book loads in the Remington sisters from the Winchester sisters data , except in deferment to the rifles themselves . Seen here the Rem 30&32 with the Win 32&30 and 6.8 . You will note that the Rem looks like it...

    If all of this isn't enough ...... You can do 30 and 35 Herrett on a 6.8 case . Better yet from a cost point for AR you can do them in the 22 NOS and keep the 223 bolt .

    I still think the neck up on a 6.8 or 22 Nosler case would give you more ...... Have you heard of a 300 AAC Black Out or the more obscure 300 Whisper ? The Nosler brass gives you the 223 bolt and a more straight case about .1 longer that the...

    Paul The soft and readily melted part of the Darrs is the reason I reduced the Vaseline and added STP . The 90 desert mornings just turned it to soup and had it oozing all over . The increased parrafin helped a lot . It's still soft enough to...
