    I've always wanted one. Every-time I get weak I borrow my buddies Model 8. They kick like the proverbial mule with the long action recoil system. That cures me for awhile.

    Got to send a small batch of dies to nitride in a few days, figured I might as well nitride all the 22 cal BTSimple dies on order while I'm at it for no additional cost to customers. Just a few extra days wait time but it will be worth it! Consider...

    Norma is great brass also. The rep. on Norma is the head is softer so primer pockets loosen sooner. For me in 6mm BR that has been true.

    Since the burn rates of these powders are relatively close, both are ball powder and the amount mixed is very small it really is more of a comfort and knowledge concern than a safety concern. If you are competent enough to purchase and use surplus...

    Most firearms using stainless use a 416/420 or 630 (17-4) stainless steel. It will be magnetic. Non-magnetic stainless steel is far more corrosion resistant but it generally not heat-treatable. As such they are too soft for most firearms...
