    Probably but be careful to grip the action by the threaded portion so you don't tweak it. Just for reference I had a #4 SMLE that I put a pipewrench on and 4 foot cheater pipe over the handle and put 300 pounds (me) on the end and the barrel...

    Also check length alighnment on the gas block in the key. Gas rings in the bolt may be a small issue also. Alighnment of the block to gas port and tube to gas block is also important. Also check hole sizes of the gas port block and tube. block...

    mold maker replied to a thread Free Range Brass in Our Town
    If it weren't for range brass I'd have had to buy to shoot. Of course, I picked up lots of .40 and 9mm that I'll never use while getting the good stuff. I traded lots of the excess for needed calibers, and still have many gals of them. both...

    Good morning The "cylinder gap" info is interesting. Makes one wonder what Colt did with all the rejects ? Surely they would not pass them onto unsuspecting civilians. This is one that has been with us down here in the Southern confines of...

    Yes, I have to agree, and I dont like plastic! I load my sp101 in 327 with a 311008 @ 1000fps. Plenty (and then some) for ground hogs and the like. I just dont see the 327 as a good deer gun , so I feel no need to run it at the top. Truth is I would...

    Correct, the 12 will pattern more evenly than the 20 in general. With the 7/8 load the 20 is great, I much prefer the 12 for 1 1/8 and up. Now for 1 oz, ill take a 16 , but the 20 can come close. Also you can drive the larger payloads faster in...

    I'm a Kit Gun addict, there I said it. Have trouble letting one pass thru my hands, especially a 32! Found this one while checking GB for a friend, probably paid more than I should, but then it's a 32SWL. not generally a fan of Rossi but I've a...

    Biggest contributor to recoil difficulties is gun fit, you may like that stock but it doesn't fit you like it should. Thats assuming a typical weight shotgun. Now I'm a wing shooter but also compete and coach. When we run clinics a box in 10 minutes...

    Greetings I would have to add.. If anyone was carrying a Walker or any of the slightly smaller Dragoons for defensive use they will be a far stouter feller than I am. There is a reason these huge revolvers were know as "Horse Pistols". You need a...

    Sometimes a piece of 3/8" or 1/2" round stock between the move able jaw and part helps to seat the part square. If you have to shimm it definitely allows the part to sit better. This keeps the moveable jaw from over riding the fixed jaw and...

    I don't obsess over what I considered a very minor problem at worst. Since turning to wet tumbling with SS pins the problem doesn't exist, and my press stays clean.
