    I may be going through the same thing right now with my new Tikka rifle. I know this rifle will to shoot just like the other Tikkas I own and have owned. I've been to the range with it three times now and in all instances I've had my hopes...

    If you haven't already done so, try craigslist.com, backpage.com or your local pawn shops. They sometimes have higher quality air guns on the rack at very good prices; that is, if you don't mind buying a good used air rifle. HollowPoint

    I haven't been able to log on for two days now. I thought that by resetting my Safari browser it would clear whatever was causing this warning screen to come on every time I tried going to a different page on this site. All it did was make me have...

    The aluminum flashing I'm using now measures .010" thick according to my digital calipers and this is the flashing that extrudes up tightly against the last driving band of my bullets. Ideally, I'd like to have the extrusion stop just before it...

    I've been having basically the same problem in that the Gator checks I'm using for my 6.5mm bullets are so shallow that I have to Powder Coat over the top of them to get them to stay in place. I can't confirm this; I'm just assuming that powder...

    I get what you're saying and it makes sense when a guy needs to reduce the size of the nose of the bullet. If I were shooting naked checked and lubed bullets I'd be a very unhappy camper. The bullets out of the 6.5mm Lyman mold I'm using are...

    I'd say just adjust your head-spacing on both and go from there. The reasons for them being off could be many. Perhaps whoever did it initially used two different brands of head-spacing gauges. If it was done this way from the factory, maybe...

    It is possible to make a nose sizing die with only a specific drill bit and chucking reamer. The hard part would be in the indexing of the metal stock to be drilled and reamed so as to get as near a perfectly centered hole as possible. Even then...

    I finally got a chance to make it to the range today to test my 6.5mm Powder Coated cast bullets. The way I do it is; I place the gas-checks on the gas check shanks before applying that second coat to the driving band area of my bullets; then,...

    "Kerosene in a Corvette?" When someone asks a generic question about a "Load" for a given caliber and cast lead bullet, without any other information we're left to assume (at least I am) that he's looking for a standard load for cast bullets that...

    Another contributor to the accuracy issues of the Umarex Octane is the factory trigger pull. I've had new owners tell me that when they checked the trigger pull using a trigger-pull-gauge, they measured anywhere from 8 to 13 pounds. Although it...

    I buggered up the chamber of a Lee Enfield rifle after all other avenues of extracting a broken shell failed. In an act of sheer stupidity I thought if I could force a small flat screw driver between the brass and the chamber wall, I could then...

    I can't believe no one has replied to your inquiry yet. I don't own anything in this caliber but I do believe I'd try the standard 16 grains of 2400 and tweak up or down from there. That combo worked well enough in my 7.5x55 Schmidt Ruben with a...
