    My rifle is a 1:14 and pistol Is 1:10. They both work fine. Badger doesn't push them very fast. Sent from my SM-J737V using Tapatalk

    I use a 158 RNFPBB in 357SIG. It has a very short neck and I barely have to flare the case mouth to seat a bevel-bottomed bullet. This works well enough that I don't have to run a separate operation to crimp the case mouth back down. So win/win...

    + 1000, I totally agree! We all need to stick together on our 2nd Amendment rights. Why is it in Europe a suppressor is encouraged as a good sportsman and we restrict it?

    I signed it earlier today. I don't have a suppressor, doubt I ever will considering most of my shooting is low velocity and black powder. However I support this cause.

    I hope you find a good load that shoots well. Did you get the mold by chance and his loading data? It will save you some time and components.☺ BTW, .303 cases may well be too short for your chamber. Measure the fired cases to know.

    Glad to hear you figured it out. Wish you had provided more information initially. I thought you might of had an old Winchester that used the 250 gr loads. It should be fun for silhouettes. :smile:

    Put a lot of thought into how far a rifle bullet will fly when fired into the air at a high angle. Then buy more shotgun shells.

    M70 is easier because of the flat bottom, the wrench has something to dog on. Just have to get it back in the right place so the extractor works. The wood blocks and some rosin work ok for previously swapped barrels but are a bit weak for never...

    Forming can be done with either, but 30-40 would be my choice. Just fireform it with a bit of fast burning powder with cream of wheat filler as that's what I do. Then trim to length. I imagine your have a pretty slow twist in that rifle, so...

    I think the hardest to remove barrel I've run across was a mosin nagant. That took some serious muscle. I have twisted Mauser barrels in half, but that's not terribly hard to do. I do Rem 700 barrels most every day, and have not met one yet that was...

    I tried that in my short barrel Colt. It's pretty dramatic and plenty powerful, and I went back to 2f just to calm it down a bit. That old 45 is pretty impressive when it's loaded like it's meant to be.

    Good luck, hopefully they've gotten thdir act together and you'll be happy with it. I honestly hope so as we have far too few good custom gun makers making BP firearms!

    I forgot to mention whoever chambered the rifle needs to learn to pull out the reamer occasionally to clear out the chips as my chamber had a radial gouge in it. I built. many BR, HP, 1000 yd rifles and F class rifles years ago including the 6mm BR...

    The only negative I've ever heard about Shiloh is the long wait time, but to get a quality custom rifle I expect it.

    I doubt you'll ever match the accuracy you can get with jacketed. But with enough work and patience you should be able to make it work quite well, say twice the size of your normal groups, at almost the same velocity. That's been my experience...

    I recently received a 1885 high grade rifle in 40-65 from C Sharps. The web site says 90-120 days. Well it was almost 9 months. Not a big deal as I expect a custom gun to take awhile. However I suggested they change their web site a couple of...

    Nobade replied to a thread 58 cal smooth bore in Muzzleloading.
    80gr. Is a good load in a 12 ga. I would think you'd want a bit less in a 58. I use cardboard wads such is mentioned in the sticky above that tells you about how to manage a shotgun. That works great and doesn't cost anything.

    FWIW CZ corrected the 'tall' bolt handle root years ago. You can just buy a replacement handle from CZ online that's significantly shorter that will clear most objectives with lower rings, or get out the angle grinder, flap wheel and the cold blue...

    I've shot a lot of blue dot in my 416 Taylor under the RCBS 350. It works quite well. Not hard to hit 1700 fps with very good accuracy. That formula sounds about right, usually I'd call a 50 percent load to be the top so 40 pct. Should be plenty...

    That's a good tip. I knew some guys wipe their cartridge rifles with RV antifreeze so making moose milk out of it makes sense.

    I've got a 50mm objective-d, 30mm tube-d Vortex scope on a 527 Varmint. The Warne Maxima mediums are just about right for the barrel profile. The scope bell can't get much closer to the barrel. I didn't need to lap the rings. The scope seems to...
