    So you think there should be no laws at all. Should be ok to slug down that jd. Now we wouldn't want to infringe on your rights or make you out to be a hypocrite. You see, I have a right to my opinion on each subject and so do you. That's what we...

    owning a quart of jack Daniels is legal too. Does that give me the right to slug it down driving down the interstate? Nope. WHY? because its been proven to cause accidents and kill people. Just having an open bottle in you car is illegal here even...

    well at least they should ban putting options in cars that make it easier to use your cell phone. I like triplebeards suggestion. About all phones made today have gps so a auto shut off at say 10mph would be easy to program in. Add to that your...

    Well I can give two examples of how they are a value. I built one a few years back. Had 500 in it and during the last scare got 750 for it cash at the local shop. How did it compare to factory gun prices then? I don't know because he flat out...

    Hey all, I know the 480 shines with 400+ boolits (I have a 435gr WLN from Mountainmolds- Dan is exceptional), but I want to stretch my lead stash so I played around with a 300gr and a 370gr SWC for Unique/Trailboss plinking at 50-75yd with irons but...

    Heres something I think would work well. How about a standard length 223 but blow out to improved opened up to 25 6.5 7mm or 30 cal. Make mine a 257 (just because I like the 25s) shooting an 87 grain sierra game king. Is there any such thing?

    The part of the extractor that folds down over the face of the bolt is the CLAW on a claw extractor, the bevel is the bottom edge of that claw that slips into the extractor groove of the cartridge, notice the shape, very very little at a time.

    I've done a couple from BLANKS and they needed extra work to be 100% To tight or not enough rounded off on lower corner, feeding issue, too loose and you are screwed, it can jump the extractor over the rim and you can run it like a push feed, not...

    Look directly at the face of the extractor, head on if you will, you will see the bevel on the edge of the extractor. That bevel is what slips into the extractor groove on the cartridge. After you get the extractor to fit down in to the groove in...

    GI are all roll pins. I don't remember the manufacture but there was a scope mount that used the slot for the stripper clip guide for a scope mount that required the receiver be threaded.

    This is the best I can do with cell phone. Bolt is in same position as your picture, no cartridge under claw as yours, note the extractor to bolt interface, that is what it should look like. I hope this helps you

    Yes and then the bevel on the claw to cartridge head, the cartridge should slip under the extractor with enough force to hold the cartridge in place-CRF. make sure the collar wraps around the groove in the bolt as a slip fit also, especially if...
