    Not necessarily, long range MLs shoot both grease groove and PP bullets that are bore diameter and they depend on slug up to groove diameter for them to shoot accurately out to and beyond 1000yd. Some BPCR shooters do the same with PP bullets in...

    It has been an education for sure. There are a lot of pitfalls so if you decide you want to go this route get a hold of me and I can fill you in on the ones I've encountered. I THINK I'm on the right road now. Our club mid-range championship match...

    I got it from the Nepal Cache back in 2005 when they came on the market. I worked in South Africa for a couple years and sort of fell in love them. Here is a group at 100yd from it as well as a couple of small frame Martinis that I acquired after...

    The average age of NMLRA members is 70 years, I'm 72. If the organization doesn't turn around it WILL be dead in 10 years or so and they will be dividing the assets. Short of going to the national black rifle association. I'm not sure if it has a...

    Sharps Straight. CG, I shot a LR Match at Camp Atterbury Thur and Fri with my 45-70 Pedersoli Sharps and I thought I had a 22 Yesterday in the 40-50 the first couple rounds. I'm not particularly sensitive to recoil but the 40-50 was quite...

    A lot of the WWII mechanics swear by it in aircraft fuel. The guy I use to fly for used it in all of his airplanes and he was an A&P as well and did all of his own maintenance. Our engines typically ran 600 to 700 hours past recommended overhaul....

    To say that this 40-50 has been an experience is an understatement. I have run into problems that I never even thought about when I ordered this rifle. Anyway after the last round of education I got some real promising results at 300yd. I took the...

    The real Heydays were in the 70s and 80s. There were no vacancies in commercial row and it was hard to find a parking place. I guess the upside now is you don't have to pay to get in but there doesn't seem to be much happening either. Of course the...

    I tried screening the damp pucks once and the results weren't very satisfactory. The powder wasn't as dense as my dried puck powder and performed at a lower level so never pursued that route any farther. Of course this is like skinning cats, many...

    Just got back from the Long Range event held at Camp Atterbuy, 800, 900, and 1000yd. Unfortunately this event is slowly going under from lack of participation. This one had the minimum participants to break even. I'm not sure why the attendance is...

    I've been working on a 40-50 for several months now. I got brass from Graf's and just ordered 150 cases the other day that they had on sale. I had to ream my brass for the .408 boolits after fire forming. The sides are too thick otherwise. Bob

    You might have something there, since I've been tumbling mine for 24hrs in a Thumbler's HS tumbler. I sure never had the problem in a vibratory tumbler. Checked some of my other cases and they definitely have a lip as well. These cases were formed...

    I got a Shiloh in 40-50 a week before deer season last fall. I did manage to get a deer, apparently out of shear luck. Since then I have been tearing my hair out trying to get this gun to shoot, and there isn't much to spare anymore. I started...

    I bit the bullet and got BACO cases and 8MM Mauser Lee dies, I think neck size. It has been some time ago. The rifle actually shot very well with the Lee Max bullet. Bob

    I just ordered the RB sight from Brownell's and it worked fine as far as the angle was concerned. These RBs were probably built under license from Remington so the parts are probably somewhat interchangeable. Of course the 8MMs were converted...

    Actually the 2 screws are to level the tang sight without having to file the base. Windage is a slide on the eye cup. The sight is definitely not going to work well for mid or long range. It is cheaper than the Marble's with the interchangeable...

    Moa I already sent you a PM but I can't see why they wouldn't work on the 12.7s. The arc might be a little higher but at a 100yd it shouldn't be out of the range. When I got the 8MM I was actually looking for a 12.7 and was a little late and KEBCO...

    One of a couple I've taken with my 38-55 and a Marbles tang sight although I had the match sight on for this one. I had my Highwall converted to the single set trigger by C-Sharps and it was $275 at the time. If you order the rifle that way it is...
