    Bazoo, the loads you fired today that leaded a little bit, how much resistance do you get if you push one of the boolits through the cyl. throats from the front with your fingers?

    To pass the time in house arrest or stay at home whatever you call it, I got a sourdough starter from an ebay seller in San Francisco, 150yr old starter, extra sour, and it IS, well worth the $5 plus shipping since King Arthur Flour was completely...

    bigjake, how many of your barrels have nearly zero freebore in front of the chamber? These are problematic regardless of boolit style or coating. I like to see a throat that will let you plunk whatever will cycle through the magazine. Even...

    There are a growing number of very high quality modern cast iron skillets on the market. I have a ton of 100+yr old iron and the one I seem to use the most for large dishes? A modern Lodge #10 from Wallyworld. If something sticks in it I can...

    Not doing a lot differently, I don't have people coming over during any other time so I didn't have to rearrange anything at home really, and I can still do cylinders and barrels through the mail. Not welding as much, waiting on steel to come for 3...

    I bet this works really well in a rifle, but a revolver cylinder is too short to take advantage of it. I throat auto pistol barrels long, with enough freebore for the boolit to exit the case mouth and be guided square and concentric by the freebore...

    DougGuy replied to a thread Bad leading in Cast Boolits
    Leading in a Ruger usually involves two things. First and foremost, the cylinder throats are likely smaller than you would like them to be, so remove the cylinder and take one of your boolits and try and push it through the throats from the front. ...

    I got cabbage and a corned beef but today I made cabbage and "blackened" kielbasa, with jalapeno cornbread and buttermilk. This is white boy soul food if there ever was any! For cabbage I only made half a head, cut into two quarters, a small...

    You WANT your lower to be classified on the 4473 you fill out as OTHER. That said, you can build either pistol or rifle, of course if you choose pistol, max. barrel length and length OAL will have to be observed. Once you build a rifle, if it is...

    In addition to this, there are two distinctly different sets of specs from SAAMI for 44 rem mag, one for a revolver and a different one for a rifle. Diameters are different. Rifle specs are larger than revolver specs.

    It would take a LOT to create a 1911 that won't respond to the common cures for jams, I don't think anyone has mustered that kind of skill so far. Meaning that with enough diligent trial and error of the various known "fixes" you can get any 1911...

    DougGuy replied to a thread 45acp in Cast Boolits
    Throating salt bath hardened barrels no problem, it just costs more because carbide reamers are the only thing that will cut one and they are 3x and 4x the cost of a HSS reamer. The ones I don't do, are the case hardened barrels. You can't...

    DougGuy replied to a thread 45acp in Cast Boolits
    When you do get a 1911, look in the barrel and if it has rifling running right down to the chamber mouth/headspace ledge, get the barrel throated then you can run whatever boolit you choose, seated out ever how long you want to seat it, as long as...
