    As I was told the garand was set up to work within a set pressure at the gas port. Powders were to be slower than IMR **** ( dont remember the number for sure at the moment) the 4895s and IMR 4064 were very popular in this range. The risk was bent...

    This is mine, on many occasions. Other times it might be a 22 single shot or handgun of some type. Will always be something light pleasing to my eye while being nice in the hand. 32WCF M25, sure wish they still made rifles like this.

    I believe the differences will only show up in a manufacturing type setting. Where you set up 3-5 tools and run to a digital read out replacing tools for needed operations. You might have 1 facing, 1 turning,1 relief, a boring bar and a threading...

    All of these shuld work in this order 45 colt, ( long colt) 45 schofield and possibly even 45 acp / auto rim. I believe the .896 dimension is the same as 45 ACP / auto rim or very close to it. Depending on what dies you have available try a case or...

    I have sized down 308s to 243 strickly for the reason of being able to fit the necks on a couple rifles. Improved accuracy some and made them last longer. ALso saved having a xustom chamber cut and new barrel. I turned to .001 clearance total. It...

    If the handle is the same I would cut two pieces of round stock that fits the radius well, tubing or pipe would be best, but even wood dowels would add the extra surface for a solid repair. I would use JB weld glue the ends into the deck side and...

    No matter what anyone writes You need at least a caliber 50 (50 Alaskan minimum) to shoot black bears !!! :>) Whatever you are comfortable with will also work. Your 444 with a heavy slug will do in Mr Blacky. That 35-06 with a 200 grain FN will...

    It will thin the rims accurately but primer pockets will be way shallow and deepening them that much will thin the case head and possibly enlarge the flash hole. (the inside of the case head isn't normally flat but radiused so if it gets to there...
