    A friend of mine inherited his Grandpa's 7mm mag. His Grandpa had always saved his brass, so my friend bought some dies and components and came over to load them up. I believe he just settled on a middle-of-the-road load between start and max and we...

    It's boxer primed and the little mark that looks like an 'F' is either a scuff or discoloration, there's no depth to the mark at all. country gent, that's interesting about unlabeled rounds for clandestine ops and such. "yeah we want to sell ammo...

    Yeah it was a definite over pressure, the primer looks like it has the shape/texture of the bolt face. It's tricky to get a close up picture, try this though. I'm just curious if anyone has seen a headstamp with caliber only, no other...

    Metroxfi started a thread Odd 30-06 stamp in Vintage Ammo
    Anyone ever see anything like this? I was digging through a bunch of 30-06 range pickups to convert certain headstamps to 7.7x58 for my brother and I came across one piece that was... different. It only has the 30-06 stamp on the lower section,...

    I remember reading somewhere, I cant find the source now, that some of the early Japanese rounds were notorious for being inaccurate and severe leading. I had nothing to do with the rifle itself, or the bullet, or the load. The cast bullets loaded...

    My fix to a problem 9mm was similar. I bought my wife a Ruger SR9, with 356-120TC cast of air cooled COWW, sized .358", and lubed with 50/50 beeswax/moly grease leading was so bad that at 7 yards I shot two full mags worth at a sheet of paper and...
