    If my Dad was still alive , he'd tell you about the time in WWII when he was in the south pacific at an air base . It was night time when a couple of bombers landed and needed a load of fuel and munitions . The ground crew said they filled them with...

    A cubic foot of lead weighs 709 lbs. Those ingots look like 2 ft x 2 ft x 1 foot with some missing around the bottom. So probably close to 3 cubic feet, so they are probably one ton ingots.

    My revolver and rifle prefer different loads. You can shoot the same load in both, but working up what works best for each gun is the best route.

    That's a gawdawful countersink he cut for the vent liner. You get what you pay for! The general opinion of most other builders is, Jackie can take $700 worth of parts, and make you a fine $300 gun.

    As a youth I'd give Mom the money for a brick of them and she'd get them from Montgomery Ward . I shot a bunch of them while the neighbors were at work ... city living is a pain ain't it ? Jack

    I had the same problem with buckets of brass that could use annealing and not enough time to do it . Getting a bench Source "Vertex" solved the problem and once adjusted using a few scrap cases and Tempilaq it turns out cases very fast . You do have...

    My pastors daughter put and empty case on the tip of the antler of her first buck . Easy enough to do when the case is a .44 magnum . How about make up a shadowbox with small shelves inside and use the empty case idea . Or perhaps something that...

    We've got a lot of griz and black bear activity here, too. Friend wants me to go shoot one out of his apple trees. Problem is, they only come at night, and I don't need the hassle of accidentally killing a griz.

    If the finish is completely cured, you will leave no steel wool particles in the finish. I finished a lot of very expensive exhibition grade stocks with steel wool where such a blemish would be disaster. Never a problem.

    I use some Bullplate Lube on the mold. Careful application with a Q tip. Keep it out of the cavity. I think synthetic chainsaw 2 cycle oil is the same thing.

    If you didn't start out with well seasoned wood to make a stock, you may as well figure on starting over. An uncured stock will warp, twist, and do all kinds of nasty things if you expect the rifle to group. If you used Truoil too heavily, it...
