    Very true but you can't use the normally much cheaper to purchase used rifle action to do a pistol since it becomes a short barrel rifle in the eyes of the ATF. It was a reply to

    I will keep my 6.5 x 284's http://bulletin.accurateshooter.com/2017/10/new-hornady-6-5-prc-precision-rifle-cartridge/ but I only have those in single shot match rifles. The 6.5 PRC may result some mag issues like the 6.5 Creedmoor does but I have...

    100% machining your own action is legal, however, using a rifle action to do a handgun is not unless you get a SBR stamp.

    The only statement that is correct is that it is the internet. The 6.5 Creedmoor is the brain child of the partnership by Hornady Senior Ballistics Scientist, Dave Emary and Dennis DeMille, the VP of product development for Creedmoor Sports for NRA...

    M-Tecs replied to a thread 6.5 Creedmore - NOT in Factory Rifles
    Running the long bullets in the .260 for magazine feeding requires the bullet be seated in the donut area of the neck. This creates issues since most competitors don't want to inside neck ream. They much prefer to outside neck turn. The 6.5...

    If the Specific Gravity of the separate alloys are known, the difference in the weight of each alloy used in the mold can be easily calculated. Most Lyman mold specifications use the Lyman #2 alloy to specify the weight of the bullet cast from a...

    Yes it will feed the very long bullets used by the long range competitors out of a 308 length mag. With the .260 using the same long bullets the mag runs out of space.

    In the early 1900's it was very common for competition shooting. It greatly reduces fouling. Most BP competitions do not allow it today. http://castboolits.gunloads.com/showthread.php?137201-Black-powder-duplex-loads

    I used the image of the 358315 mold in the Lyman catalog to scale the dimensions of the bullet and then entered the data into the Cast Bullet Design and Evaluation database. The software estimates the Ballistic Coefficient to be 0.2862. ...

    No disagreement. I love the.17 Mach 2. My favorite is a Magnum Research semi-auto with a Kidd two stage trigger, I also have the .17 Mach 2 in CZ's, Sako Quads and Contenders. That doesn't change the fact that the cartridge is almost dead. ...

    That is one of the primary reasons the cartridge is on life support. Dirty chambers in a shouldered rimfire in semi-auto don't mix so chamber dimension's between manufactures vary greatly. Between the case splits and slam fires ammo manufactures...

    Like most long range rifle competitors I mostly load on a progressive. We all have no problem holding 1/2 MOA out to a 1,000 yards with a progressive. To produce extremely accurate ammo the same steps have to be followed. Press type makes very...

    Started reloading in at 9 or 10 years old for a re-enactment club. Loading about 50,000 rounds for them on a single station press. Reloading was never fun until I purchased a 1050.

    May be that my old eyes do not see well either but, if I were you, I would pull that bolt down and check the firing pin tip. I may be wrong but it appears to be either flame cut or broken.

    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...
