    DukeInFlorida replied to a thread Swage lube in Swaging
    I buy my anhydrous Lanolin from Randy Rat, here on the forum. I mix 80% lanolin with 20% Militec 1 synthetic oil. I put em both in a small jar, and have made a small mixing propeller from a wirecoat hanger. I mix until the lanolin looks a bit more...

    I'll take those, please. I'm still out of town, so if it's OK, I will get payment to you by next Tuesday. If you will take PayPal, I can send payment immediately. Please advise. Hi Ron, sorry, I have first dibs this time. ;)

    Thanks all, I am still on the hunt for reloadable brass. I think I want a couple hundred, somehow. I have read up on the various ways to remake other brass into 6.5 Jap, but it all seems tedious. Will try to find brass with proper headstamps.

    An elderly friend gifted me his war trophy Type 38 Japanese Arisaka. It was given to him as he left Hiroshima, being part of the first boots on the ground there after the bomb. The rifle is complete with a non-numbers matching original bayonet and...

    Start looking for an extra magazine for the Brno. They are hard to find. It can take some time.

    I had buddies send me pictures of my home. The power is on, and no obvious damage. The only thing out of sorts is that my banana plant, with the bananas growing on it, got broken in half. Yes, we have no bananas. So, will be staying in New...

    There is a curfew in place until noon today in my city (Port Orange, FL). So, friends who are near my place will do a drive by after the curfew gets lifted and send me some images of my place. I have my fingers crossed. Will post again when I get...

    I think this scope is now Chinese manufactured. This morning I read China says it will back North Korea if the US attacks it first. I am not buying things, if at all possible, from anywhere that helps North Korea have time to develop capabilities...

    I'll start it off. I left Port Orange (just South of Daytona) at 08:30 Thursday AM, and drove up to my son's home in Peabody, MA. I was going to come up in October for his birthday, but the hurricane gave me reason to make the trip early. Traffic...

    I have centered on the CZ 527 American and Carbine in .221 Fireball, .223, 7.62 Russian and maybe a Grendel eventually. They preform and fit me very well. I have a set of detachable rings in 30mm and can use plastic inserts to reduce the diameter...

    DukeInFlorida replied to a thread .308 from 5.7 cases in Swaging
    Heavy bullets don't only translate into round nose. PeeWee and I are making 150 grain and 168 grain bullets by merely adjusting the weight of the lead cores. I could easily make 180 or 200 grain bullets with the same dies in .308" diameter by...

    Considering this rifle that I crave but don't need and looking for others experiences and comments. Might have found one with good wood which brings it again into consideration. Any substantial advantage over a 7.62x39 in the CZ 527 format when...

    Have the same extraordinary rifle but not yet worked on it. Please continue to post your experiences. The pictured wood stock is much better than mine. Beautiful rifle and beautiful group you have.
