    Well I can give two examples of how they are a value. I built one a few years back. Had 500 in it and during the last scare got 750 for it cash at the local shop. How did it compare to factory gun prices then? I don't know because he flat out...

    sounds like bad primers. pull the bullets and use in new cases. I use .38 super dies to load mine. I don't know about .38 s&w. if you are close to my location you could come over and get it running.

    Heres something I think would work well. How about a standard length 223 but blow out to improved opened up to 25 6.5 7mm or 30 cal. Make mine a 257 (just because I like the 25s) shooting an 87 grain sierra game king. Is there any such thing?

    read my test on my under 400 dollar psa gun. You don't need a chrome lined barrel. As a matter of fact many will tell you there not as accurate. Ive got 8 ars none have chromed barrels. I shoot the snot out of all of them and have had a bump stock...

    good in theory but now everyone knows you have it. How long can you defend it against say 50 hungry armed attackers. A much smarter thing to do with your wheat then trading it for gold would be to feed enough people that you really could defend your...

    When I was building my barn I bought a paslode. No air line to drag around. I use it all the time. Its handy to have when you want to build something out in the woods too. Beats the heck out of dragging a generator and air compressor along. I can...

    this is a sub station lightning arrestor. You have something like that? Along with a 10000 square foot ground grid (small substation) You think theyd spend that kind of money if a 500 dollar lightning arrestor and a couple ground rods would take...

    every see the ground grid put down around a cell tower? It sure isn't one or two 6 foot ground rods like you have for a typical home. I did my own for my home and have 8 ground rods and don't believe they would come close to handling a direct hit of...

    remember it is a blow back action not a locked breach. so if there is any wear on that spring it will batter the action. a new wolf spring is cheap insurance.

    that's kind of the way I was taught. Dc flows through the entire wire cross section and ac flows mostly on the surface but keep in mind that most wire is made by weaving many strands together to make one conductor and the current flows on each of...

    there is more variation between the cup hardness of different brands then between different primers of the same brand. A cci small or large standard pistol primer is harder then a fed mag small or large rifle primer.
