    The "Trigger Upgrade" in question is an air gun specific drop in part that's made as a replacement to one of the components in the trigger group of the Umarex Octane air rifle and clone air rifles that have the same trigger group as the Octane. ...

    When it gets into the triple digit summer time temperatures here in Arizona I usually carry my ultra light weight KelTec P3AT. Any other time I carry a Khar CM9. The KelTec is super light and thin enough that I can just stuff it in my front...

    Here's a couple more pics showing the Pre-Flattened primers I mentioned earlier. The upper row of seated primers were installed using my Forster Coaxial loading press. I wasn't able to get the right camera angle to show just how Pre-Flattened...

    I was thinking along those same lines. If these weren't on the lower end of the powder charge weight I'd probably do just that. I want to test the high end of the powder charge weights to see if any of those higher velocity charge weights will...

    OK: Here they are. These are the pics of the two latest targets from my latest load work up. The first one show the wasted shots I mentioned in my previous post. I didn't think that changing my head spacing by .003" would affect my point of...

    A while back I mentioned my hankering to do another such project, but this time chambering in 6.5x284 Norma. I had most of the funds well on the way to being saved up and then (as it happens in life) I lost a major filling in my mouth followed...

    It's hard to believe that months have past since completing this K31 project. I see from the number of views this thread has gotten it's now creeping up on Ten-Thousand clicks. I guess I really wasn't the only guy on the planet who had dreamed of...

    That's a mold I could take a look at but I can't seem to find any such thing on midway. Even the LeePrecision website doesn't seem to list it. I was kind of hoping for something within the 140 to 160 grain range in a gas check design. ...

    OK; thanks guys. I'll just keep saving up until I can get the right sized bullet mold. I'm just now starting to do any real research into which mold is the most popular or forgiving for the 6.5 Swedish cartridge. (shot out of my re-chambered K31...

    I'm gearing up to buy my first 6.5 bullet mold but most are higher priced than I'm wanting to pay right now. I have come across several 6mm and 25 caliber molds that are well within my budget so, I'm wondering if it's even worth it to use a...
