    I had one of his 97D rifles in his proprietary 30-30 improved. It was the worst and most expensive gun mistake of my life. The barrel is fixed to the receiver by epoxy which means no one will work on them and the extractor/ejector is very fragile.

    It would be worth looking at re-cutting that chamber to .303 Br. or 7.62x54 Russian. Either with a .3085 bore would make a good cast bullet load with more beans than a .30-30. 30-40 is a good caliber but brass is pricey and sometimes hard to...

    I know about "pole bean" where doctored small arms ammo, and mortar rounds left behind for the NVA to use, and kill some of their people. The plan was to make the NVA distrust the Chinese who furnished most of their ammo. Didn't know that the...

    I have no experience with the Howa, but am interested in the cheap AR mags for the RARs. I have a 762X39 RAR Ranch Rifle that works very well with Ruger Ranch Rifle mags that are shipped with it. I have a RAR Ranch in .223 but the plastic mag is...

    I wish my shoulder was tough enough to handle full pressure loads in .35 Whelan. I have a 76 in .35 Rem that belonged to my father. I currently hunt with a 7600P in .308 with a 16 inch barrel. Nice muzzle flash. If you get a good hit on a deer...

    Ruger makes two of their .223 Ruger American rifles to take AR magazines. One is a preditor with 22"barrel and the other is a Ranch rifle with 16" barrel. Has anyone bought one and had any experience to pass on. I am thinking of one or the...

    Ask Bellm what he considers to be the best dies. David White told me that he liked Hornady new dimension best. I bought a set but cannot tell the difference in results between the hornady and Lee. Dillon works well too.

    I mix HBN with kroil to coat the cavities of molds as a release agent. Get the mold absolutely clean, get it hot, apply mix with a Q-tip and reheat. Two or three coats and nothing will stick the cavity. It treats the metal without changing the...

    Did you slug the bore/chamber? What diameter are you sizing your Lee 150s? Thanks

    My bad, oltztymers has set in. My CVA Hunter was shipped as a .35 Remington. My Scout is a 14" pistol that began life as a .357 mag and is now a .357 Maximum Sorry for the confusion. I also have a .357 Mag Handi that I sent to David White. ...
