    Id like to see a ruger Number 1 1/2 scale in 22 lr and the other rim fire cartridges. Sort of in line with the old butcher / boys rifles of days past. A nice light little rifle for walking the fields and woods with.

    The rolling block is a fun rifle to shoot and easier prone than some others. The 38-55 is a easy cartridge to work with and is easier on powder and lead supplies than the bigger cartridges. Slug your barrel and buy your mould accordingly. Know the...

    The external adjustment scopes are usually set up for 7.2" or 17" ring spacing. Ring spacing is what determines the movement of each click. It also allows for movement of the tube in the mounts. The adjustments...

    I will tell you this, a lot of members have thrown a lot at you for a beginning shooter. My advise is to try and find a BP shooter or group close and attend some shoots. You will find lasting friendships and better help. Reading is the second best...

    Depends a lot on the equipment. wood working tools seem to go reasonable. ( Table saws, radial arm saws, wood lathes belt and disk sanders, band saws, jointers and planers) On the other hand the metal working equipment seems to bring a premium...

    Section a case in half you may be getting into where the case starts to taper into the head portion causing the "boat tail" This heavy of a bullet ( think length) may greatly reduce powder capacity in a 9mm case when loaded to OAL required. Be...

    Another thing is bullet alloy may affect the actual size of the bullet. Lyman moulds are supposedly cut for size and weight with lyman #2 mix. Flux well and run at a good cadence casting and not trying to sort or admire those shiny new bullets, save...

    After figuring out the mould and what it wants I seldom weigh bullets. A new mould I will weigh bullets to verify my technique is right for it and its casting consistant bullets as to weight and size with the alloy. Yes I do measure them with mikes...

    Also check the local fabric stores for burlap cloth they sometimes have it and it might be easier to work with. I found some burlap fabric at walmarts in the sporting goods section, it was a big piece for using in blinds and such

    Yes I could also "chuck it up" and make it. I could make it from brass, steels, aluminums or other materials bar stock Square or round. The thing is here I very much doubt there was a chuck or any "set-up" involved in the part. Having worked in...

    That type of ringed surface or a fine thread is often used for one of 2 reasons. To reduce friction on a pressed in part that may vary a little, and to reduce glare or reflections. So the rough surface in question may be an intentional thing....

    In all honesty the casting was fixture on the rough outside of the casting for the machining, These appear to be a sand casting and they can vary quite a bit on the rough castings. My guess would be that they are chucked on the end where the 7/8 14...

    On the old heavy jacks the threads were square or acme form ( even on the better c-clamps) this stopped the binding spreading effect of the Vee form thread under loads. A lot of these smaller machines are actally more comfortable to run if they are...
