    Yep. a soft wood like poplar is a wooly bugger to checker. A good hard wood is needed for good definition.

    I fire lapped a Douglas barrel with LBT lapping compound. Low velocity loads for a half dozen shots, clean, test fire again. I had to fire around 18 rounds to get the accuracy where it should be. When I was cleaning the barrel between trials, I...

    It certainly isn't ideal, however I have had several barrels over the years with very rough grooves. They shot very well, although there was the expected fouling build up.

    Dean, I have always figured a .30 bore starts at 180 gr., and goes up from there. I think a 200-220 gr. bullet is probably optimum.

    Twenty some years of Q.C. /Q.A. repetitive motion caused mine. My doctor suggested the band and some ibuprofen. Worked after a while. I used to have to wear the band when firing my heavy recoiling hand guns, but not now. Of course, being unable to...

    Another vote for a belled and chamfered .357 case. Just place case into chamber and tap home with a hammer. Takes no time and does no damage to the cylinder. I shoot Cowboy Action and will clean up my cylinders after shooting 1000 rounds or so....

    FWIW, We that shoot Cowboy Action, use 200 grain RNFP as our low recoil pill of choice. It's also the same bullet that goes into our 1911's. Although we size the 45acp to .451 and not .452

    I've done it ( and sometimes still do) to form brass for my 30-06 A.I. I know I have .270, .280 and 25-06 brass so headstamped that are loaded for my rifle. Sometimes it's just to see that one CAN....

    Blue strip ticking is the standard. I always find the proper mold to work with the ticking, rather than juggling patches.

    You picked a good piece of wood to learn on. Poplar will be a bit soft, and be a little difficult to keep sharp, well defined lines, but should cut easily. I do all my octagon barrel inletting with chisels, and a homemade scraper. Takes me around...

    I know that in my misspent youth I tried loading the bullets that I cast for my .30/30 into my .308 with regular jacketed powder charges and got patterns rather than groups. I can shoot the same bullets with light loads and get good results in my...
