    beemer started a thread 8 x 57 in Military Rifles
    Not sure where to ask this but I have J word question, if this is the wrong place please move it. I have a scoped Yugo 48 Mauser and a supply of Remington 185 gr, core-lock bullets, there is no load data for this one that I can find. I can...

    beemer replied to a thread Whole Home Generator in Our Town
    Propane service around here is a joke. Several years ago the company delivered propane to me, my Mom and brother, all within spitting distance from each other. One was $2.75, one $3.00 and mine was $4.25, called and got a runaround. The next year...

    I traded for an almost new 17 about 30 years ago, still have it box and all. Being a revolver guy I looked at it sideways for a while but finally realized what it was. It is a simple to operate and reliable fighting pistol. I have not poured...

    Not a S & W but a Taurus 605, I replaced the main spring with a Wolf reduced power spring for S & W 36, it made a difference in the DA pull. It worked fine till I tried some ammo that my buddy had loaded with rifle primers. Someone had given him...

    I like where he said "Are you kidding me", I resemble that remark. All of us that have kept old worn out stuff running out of necessity can appreciate that video. He did a good job, my hat is off to him. I bought a used PRO MAC 10-10 in the 70's....

    I have an old Bonanza press that need larger priming hole. Years ago I had a friend open a set of Lee shell holders to fit, he had a tough time and said they were hard. If I need one I don't have I have opened up one with a Dremel tool and a round...
