    I think it was Brownells. But It's been 20yrs since I bought one. So they may have been Marbles. Yep, I went out to Look. Foreign Lever guns have Marbles. Old Winchesters have old Williams, BBL & FP-Peep.

    The guys that were shooting the small artillery pieces at Washtenaw a few years back were mostly using Varget, in cases smaller than the .308. Heavy 30 caliber bullets, most at around 2000fps, most cast with lino.

    Hmm, the hollowpoints. I thought I may have been shooting the solids cause the two shots on the right went through the drywall I had the target mounted to and passed through a 5" diameter buckeye tree, about in the middle! Noticed that today while...

    A new magazine spring might put enough tension on the pin to keep it from going forward. The flipping up I've fixed on US Krags by very carefully bending the leaf spring of the pin so that it engages better in the notch of the receiver. It can be...

    I replaced the cheesy sights that came on my Rossi 1892 Rifle with Williams Buckhorns and a 3/32" brass bead. The carbine I'd previously dumped had the same problem you are dealing with.

    That's one thing I noted about my Stomperud. The action has been worked enough that some of the black phosphate coating is wearing off the bolt. It appears the root of the bolt handle is bearing more than the locking lug and guide rib are. Maybe...

    Back when they were making those .308s, the importer also had some Boehler Steel barrels made in what's stamped on mine, .243WCF. I spied a couple of them on ebay sometime back, ID'd by the left hand thread. Sold the better of the two.

    The longer a bullet is the faster twist it needs to stabilize. If 14 and 16 twists are adequate to stabilize a bullet but it looses accuracy in a 12 twist the RPM limit is being exceeded. Harder alloy or different shape of bullet may help.
