    Or; you could spend the money you would have otherwise spent for re-chambering or rebarreling on a good suppressor. It would add a little weight to help reduce some of that recoil. It would also mitigate the loud blast and some of the felt recoil...

    The "Range Rod" I made from a length of brass turned out straight enough to use as a "Range Rod" for indexing muzzle threads. I wouldn't be reluctant to use it to index my bore for threading for my inbound suppressor. Luckily, one of my customers...

    I thought about the 6.5x284 also but, that would get me back to the same recoil levels of the 7.5x55 swiss; I think. Another thing was that the angle on the shoulder of a 6.5x284 is a little sharper so I was afraid it may give me chambering...

    I have nothing but good things to say about my K31; however, the older I get, the less tolerant I am about recoil. With cast bullets recoil isn't an issue for me. Heck, even with jacketed bullets it isn't all that bad with the lighter bullets at...

    Well done sir. I love this kind of stuff. I call it, "The Genius Of The Common Man." I'll see if I can adapt this to work with some AirGun Pellet Swaging Dies I recently made up. I'd love to be able to swage my 22 caliber air gun pellets as...

    Since the OP has access to a metal lathe, he has a ton of Work-Arounds available to him. The brass screw method was mentioned but the counter point to that was the potential for an oblong muzzle opening if the brass-screw-head isn't held in such a...

    I'm still waiting on the call from my transfer agent telling me that I can come pick up my new suppressor. In the mean time, I've been practicing my concentric threading technique on old Enfield rifle barrels I've had lying around. I've found it...

    If you also have access to a mill with a third-axis you can turn your own cutters and pilots on the lathe, then cut the flutes of the cutters on the mill using the turn-table to index the flutes. You just need some tool steel to make your own. ...

    I haven't read every word of every reply here so I may just be repeating what 's already been stated but, it's possible that whoever owned this brass before you may have also tried to anneal them using the, "Partially immersed in water" method. ...
