    That’s a good question. I’ve got some bullet comparators and a concentricity gauge. I’ll try to look at this scientifically and see what I can report. I’m open to suggestions on what to look for and report.

    Crystal clear up here in NW GA and one of the colder nights of the year. I ducked out and sipped on some hot chocolate while watching it go through its changes. Very awesome and humbling. Makes me realize how small and insignificant we are in the...

    How many Glock shooters shoot 40 S&W in their 10mm based on this premise? Quite a few in my experience.

    My Henry, same as yours, has been able to cycle and chamber anything I've thrown at it. Accuracy has been hit or miss with my cast loads. Ive noticed with mine, it needs gas checked boolits if cranking up the velocity. I did shoot a deer with it at...

    As mentioned, you need a rotary tumbler. A vibratory tumbler only works with media.

    Love colibris in the guns that done like CB's. When I shoot the CB or colibiris out of my Remington Mod 41 TargetMaster, they are eerily silent. The pin hitting the rim is louder than the actual report. Love to use them in the back yard. I prefer...

    I love my BL-22. Picked it up used years ago. Frequent companion to the range. I find the short throw lever is "easier" for the kids to "learn" on. Has dovetail slot so there is no need for any bases. I love mine for sure.

    I got the 308 body die from NOE. I think it’ll just round them up. If it’s .311” one way it’s .306 the other. Like an egg. So hopefully rounds them up enough to plink with.

    I ordered the NOE body sizing die and set up. I’ll let you guys know how it works. The pulls are 147 fmj with max oval diameter of 311-312, most of them not that bad. I’m hoping the sizer will be enough to make them useable for plinkers in my 300...

    With the exception of a BB gun, probably a 22 rifle. As far as handguns go, Iím pretty confident it was my fathers Beretta 87 Target 22 while on a range in Germany as a kid. I also managed to get the muzzle behind the leather front rest and put a...

    My experience is the fatter, the better. Cast and size as large as will chamber. Use an M die to expand the case neck and try not to size the boolit down during the crimp stage. I’ve got a few great shooting Marlin MG barrels.

    To me it seems: She was being independent even if financially expensive. Valued your opinion enough at the end of the day to have them order the tires you suggested. Arguing over this will ensure a short relationship.

    the aesthetics are pleasing to my eye. I wouldn’t mind trying one out but I don’t see it replacing my smith M&P or XDS or even 1911 for carry. Perhaps they’re wanting to slot in somewhere between Taurus and the others price wise.

    Felt the same way with Hornady. I’ll make exception for their XTP 41 mag bullets. Otherwise I look elsewhere. I’ve bought a Marlin 45 Colt LE recently and it was better than several of my JM guns. So they can make a good one if they actually try....

    Is there any unburnt powder? Betting there is a powder load issue. If the boolit sticks in the forcing come, there would be un burnt powder EVERYWHERE.
