    Welcome aboard, ahlosojoe. I've been going through my notes and found a record showing a 0.7 MOA group at 200m (220yds) with Hornady 55gr spire points and Lil'Gun with a MV of 2740fps. This same load is exellent on feral goat. Rabbit and hare...

    I would tend to err on the side of caution.

    303Guy replied to a thread Why lever guns in Leverguns
    I like lever actions but I don't have one and likely never will. But I like them. A friend had a Rossi 357 magnum. Great little rifle. I loaded up for it and shot some pretty good groups with it. I always looked at it with envy when we went...

    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...

    This is my thinking too. My Anschutz isn't bad, in fact it's a well balanced rifle but I want something in hornet the size and weight of a light 22lr. Till I get one the Annie will do just fine. Ironically, my rifle design also came chambered in...

    I won many a silhouette match with my Rem 512. All of them in fact. 8-) Superbly balanced rifle, slick action and very fast to operate. I glued a scope onto it and that has worked for me for 40 years. Mine is a 1947 manufacture IIRC. The...

    I have a hornet that turned out to be a wonderful caliber for what I was doing. It has what appears to be a reamed out chamber to clean up rust damage which left some tool marks that causes case splits if I'm not careful. That oversize chamber and...

    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...

    Maybe I am out of date but I found standard velocity to be inferior for my purposes because the stuff was just on the sonic transition. With a suppressor, some would crack the sound barrier while some were quiet. So now I will only consider...

    What fire-lapping can do. Or if you like After fire-lapping I had to shorten the barrel a bit though

    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. ...

    Good heavens. So many parts! Ok, one of those parts is a disassembly tool but even so. I need to build my test suppressor, which is intended to evaluate different baffle designs for effectiveness. Considering what I'm reading here I think I'll...

    Hi Robert. Welcome aboard. I see you are in my part of the world - I'm in the North Shore region, semi-rural. I have a bunch of 303's and a 25-303. I am also looking for AR2206H loads although I also have other powders.

    Is there a reason to not go with an over-barrel suppressor and a longer barrel?

    Here is the tip of my rusted two groove barrel that I cut off. This rifle is scary accurate with j-words. Doesn't shoot cast or paper patched worth a damn though.

    303Guy replied to a thread Brit 303 barrel in Military Rifles
    I had a rifle with a loose barrel. Loose because it was a Martini 303 barrel on a MLE action. The only thing holding the barrel from turning was some forend pressure under the knox form. So that barrel wasn't turned all the way in because it's...

    Hello Corder33 What twist rate is your rifle? I am a fan of heavy cast boolits because the way I see it, a heavy cast boolit can be driven as fast as a light boolit. The problem you may find is actually fitting the boolit into the rifle. ...
