    Col4570, Nice looking roller there. Are you sizing your boolits or shooting them as cast?

    Just love the 16 gauge. Here's a late day bump. Someone should grab this, these kind of parts are real hard to get.

    This is my Wal Mart special, got it for less than ten bucks, works great. Been using same pieces for about 5 years now, holding up good. I dry my pins in the oven at night, turn it up to 250 and put the pins in and close the door, and turn oven off....

    Dusty Ed, I hope it wasn't too hard. I bought one from them years ago, back in 12, just haven't gotten around to installing it yet, how hard was it to get it wired up and didn't you have to like weld some kind of nut or something to the pot to...

    Koger, you need IMHO one or the other, or some 50-90 brass. It just depends on how many steps you want to have in the process from start to finish. The 50 anything from Winchester is going to mean you have to reduce the size of the base, the 348 Win...

    I sized the .515 boolits down to .510 in a push thru lee sizer die. I then after running the 50 Alaskan brass thru a 50-70 FL sizing die trimmed it to 42mm. I then just expanded the mouth of the case just enough to seat the boolit (450gr.) to proper...

    One picture is worth a thousands words! That spring looks good and is not what I thought it would be. I was thinking a single coil in another location to push the hammer but that looks smart the way they did it. I don't remember the name of...

    The problem with the idea of putting on a new barrel and keeping the old one to reinstalling it later is, that will never happen. It sounds good but really just does not work out that way. The old barrel will never be put on. Later when the new...

    We just had to put down a Shi-Tzu we had for almost 15 years and he was an adult when I got him, no telling how old he was. In his day, he was a very spirited good little dog, but I never noticed much in the way of predatory instinct like that. ...

    Oldred, I did not know that. I have several friends from the silhouette matches that have rebuilt or re-barreled Uberti's. I will have to ask to see them. I am trying to picture how the coil spring is setup in the Uberti. Interesting.

    Great molds. Nose pour. High tool room quality. The mold number does not sound right but maybe two numbers are run together? If it is in good shape and is a bullet you need, .... a great find. Maybe a 210 gr bullet for the .338 rifle or 33...

    Is a Schi-Weenie a Chihuahua and Daschund mix? Oughta be a fun little girl to have around. I've been seeing an awful lot of doves lately, I've never really hunted them before, but I think I'll give it a try this year when the season opens up.

    Well, I wasn't about to touch it. I went out of town for an overnight and when I got back, not a sign of it, so most likely a coyote found it and carried it off. We actually got enough rain this evening to do some good, it was crazy dry and...

    It's not prevalent in my area, but it is here. I watched a young man's life go down the drain here at my work (not an employee). He had cut his hand with a Skilsaw and was prescribed opiate pain killers. Apparently he became addicted to them in just...

    Depends on what you are using it for. You could just add tin and be fine. If it's for handgun use I'd mix the lino in a ratio of 1/3. For rifle, a 1/1 ratio will give you "hardball" alloy.

    I have a Winchester M70 Featherweight in 270 Win. Not a short action, but it's plenty of gun for the wide open places I hunt. It's flat shooting, accurate, and pleasant to carry compared to my Ruger 77 300 Win Mag. Recoil is tolerable too. It wears...
