    376Steyr replied to a thread My dream! in Factory Rifles
    I'd settle for an AR 9mm that costs the same or less than the 5.56 version. There are some nifty carbines out there, but their price tags strike me as being unrealistic. I broke down and bought an ATI carbine, which I'm happy with so far, but the...

    For an education on the M1 Garand world, I recommend lurking over at the CMP Forum M1 site for a while: http://forums.thecmp.org/forumdisplay.php?f=7 They have quite a crew over there. Hardcore collectors, new guys asking the questions you are...

    And the moral of the story is: When you see a Ruger model you like, buy it now, it may not be there later. Back on topic: My 77/357 also has wild vertical swings in point of impact with wildly different loads. 38 wadcutter hits way below 357 158...

    Sort of on topic: For years, Hornady manuals listed a maximum load of 44 grains of IMR-4064 and a 150 gr bullet for 2800 fps in the 300 Savage. This load was about 10% heavier than any other manufacturer's. I see the latest manual finally...

    Main advantage of the .41 Special is it is just skinnier enough to fit six shots into a ".357" cylinder size that would otherwise have to be a 5 shot .44. An S&W L-frame .41 is a nifty piece of gear. I suppose a 5 shot .41 in an even smaller frame...

    I'm not seeing missing bluing in the pictures, but I am seeing plenty of scratches. The rail looks like a scope mount was tried on it. I suspect you got a display model that was repackaged to be shipped to you. Not a Cabelas story, but I had...

    I suspect a mismatch between case wall thickness, sizing die, and bullet diameter may be the culprit. Years ago I had some factory brass with extra-thin case walls, coupled with a slightly oversize sizing die, with jacketed bullets. You could push...

    I would pull off the over-sized Trijicon and put a much smaller red dot on it, such as a Burris Fast-fire.

    376Steyr replied to a thread Lima Beans in Cookin' Recipe's
    Lima beans are best eaten when served with ham, in an OD Green can, opened with a P38 hung from your dogtags. Having them above room temperature is optional.

    Did the USAF +P ammo have crimped-in primers too? I kind of recall finding a few pieces of fired military .38 brass with primer crimps over the years, and wondering why somebody had felt it necessary to put a crimp on revolver loads.

    Headspace problem maybe? Check the thickness of the rims on your Federal factory ammo and compare to another brand. Maybe the firing pin is just shoving the cartridge forward in the chamber.
