    John Taylor replied to a thread Marlin 189? huh in Leverguns
    It's common to find head space problems on old lever guns. The pressure is usually not enough to stretch the brass but high enough to back the primer out. Had a 94 Win. come in that had .025" head space and the owner had been using it that way for...

    John Taylor replied to a thread Marlin 1893 32-40 in Leverguns
    Marlin barrels for smokeless are usually marked "Smokeless steel". Winchesters are marked Nickel steel which did not come out till 1895 for Winchester so all the rifle in 1894 were in 38-55 or 32-40 because they were waiting on the new barrels

    John Taylor started a thread 1886 in Leverguns
    Got a basket case 1886 Winchester in trade a few years back. The original barrel had been cut off so made a new octagon 30" barrel in 40-65. Got to the range for the first time this week to try it out. First shot on paper was 2" high and 2" to the...

    McGowen has been in Montana for about 11 years, not the same person but most of the same equipment. I quit using McGown when they would not stand behind two barrels that I sent back. I get most of my barrels from Green Mountain, X-caliber, Shilen...

    I have the same question. In the .556 I don't recommend a carbine length gas system. On my match rifles I extend the rifle length gas system 2". I have zero experience with the 458 SOCOM but everything I have read states the carbine length gas...

    That would be my point. Consumers rejected lower velocity of the 17 HM2. A low velocity 17 HMR load would fair no better.

    They do it's called the 17 Mach 2 but it didn't sell well and the gun manufactures made the chambers too loose in the semi-auto's so neck and case splits are fairly common. I have several and really like them but I purchased 8K of ammo at a...

    M-Tecs replied to a thread Are you "particular"? in Cast Boolits
    It depends on the intended usage of the ammo and guns. For my cowboy action it being safe and reliable is the only real requirement. On my 1,000 yard match rifles I do what to know and control every deal as precisely as humanly possible. On the...

    I drilled the pour spout out on one of my first 2 Lee 4-20s for larger boolits. Don't remember what size bit I used, but I will soon find out, as I have another brand new 4-20 now, and am rebuilding the first 2. I have no trouble producing first...
