    Per an email reply from Browning the B92 were .357 and 44 Mag. only. I have seen one rebore and one rebarrel in 45 Colt.

    M-Tecs replied to a thread the 17 in Rimfire Area
    It's been done as early as the 60's but the real issue is fouling problems with the larger cases. The 17 Remington is a prime example. The smaller case 17 Hornet and 17 Fireball don't seem share this issue. It also depends on intended usage. Fox...

    Between the virus and the social unrest the manufacturers can't keep up. Most distributors are out of anything remotely reassembling a self defense firearm. Since February over 2 million new first time purchasers.

    Sheesh! A .510 caliber shoulder cannon! I guess the deer are wearing armor plate these days, being you can't kill one with less than a 400gr super magnum round moving at mach II (according to the internet) so something had to be done right? ...

    44Magleo. If you have to spin the head to get the rim into the shell holder it is from case head expansion. That is one thing you should be looking for to pitch the case. It had a over pressure condition that made the head swell.

    That's a rather subjective question. On one hand, modern rings are pretty well made and it also depends on the type of ring. Otoh, if you do buy a lapping kit and your rings start showing lap patterns that are indicative of poor alignment, then...

    I always hand prime, there is just too much adjusting and inconsistencies to prime on the press. If it ain't one thing, it's another that inevitably causes a problem. I don't load 1k rounds at a time anymore so hand priming works for the amount of...

    The 17 HMR was first than the 17 Mach 2 than the 17 WSM. I have the 17 Mach 2 and the 17 HMR. I shoot the 17 HMR the most. I am heading out of state tomorrow to shoot prairie dogs. The 17 HMR is awesome for under 175 yards on PD's on a claim...

    Anything you can get on Amazon you can get from Walmart online. The prices will be exactly the same also. Seems I can look at walmart first and the price will be a little cheaper. Then if I look at Amazon then go back to Walmart to get the cheaper...

    As stated by some the RB does have AOL issues with longer cartridges. This is strictly from memory and I am not a RB guy but I believe 45-90 is about the limits without having to modify the hammer nose. ...

    I have tried a few different lubes and they all stick in the Lee 223 fl die for me. I can take the same lubed brass and run it through the same die in my rcbs press and not get any stuck cases. Same way even with 9mm. I am not using the APP for...

    Back in the mid 70's when I was doing 357 Herrett all I had was a Lyman Universal Trimmer. With normal pressure it took a month of Sundays to cut them to length. I discovered if you really jammed the cutters in each tooth would cut a nice curl and...

    All you have to do is do an online contact for customer service. They usually will give you at least a 50% credit to your account for your next purchase. I have done it 3 times and all 3 times I got at least 50%.

    Not really. It just means the extractor is long enough to hold the case secure enough to fire. It fairly common for the 10mm crowd to shoot 40 S&W in their guns

    Primers normally don't denotate with a slow compression. I have tested this several times by squeezing them flat in a machine vise. My guess is the crimp held the primer until enough pressure was applied and it popped in with sufficient force and...
