    put modern optics on it if your going to hunt with it. Its just not worth taking the chance that some old scope looses its seal or fails in any way. Add to that that optical glass and coatings have come along ways since the 60s and 70s. Your Elite...

    Lloyd Smale replied to a thread She runs! in Factory Rifles

    me either and find it VERY doubtful that the lead melted. Ive recovered cast 223 bullets from an ar15 shot into a snow bank at 2800 fps and they showed no sign of melting the base. Add to that the alloy I use is hard so it would melt easier then a...

    well the round count is over a 1000 after yesterday and I looked down the barrel and not a lick of leading. No need what so ever to put a brush to the bore.

    My first advice to new casters - melters - would be to be patient and get yourself a couple of real ingot molds. RCBS, Lyman, Lee, they all sell them and they're not too expensive. Give yourself a break. Make it as simple as possible. You could...

    10mm was first toted as the ultimate law enforcement gun. They found recoil and blast was a bit much so it was down loaded to reduce recoil and most older ammo intended for law enforcement is at about 40sw level.

    well I take back what I said about the smg tactical mags. Both of them cracked from the brass hitting the lip of the mag while feeding. On one of them the feed rails were all bent too. Real soft metal they use. Tossed them in the trash.
