    My loading manuals list mild loads for older revolvers and high powered loads for Ruger and Contenders. Where does the Model 25 fall. I've been using the mild loads. I would like to know what is considered a full power load for this revolver.

    That problem has bothered me. You want the die adjusted so good leverage can be used in resizing the case. Then run out of stroke. I just take a small piece of rod, set it on the punch and work the handle again. It does slow things down...

    I have heard good things about Theoben air guns, never handled one. Don't have an mental picture of what one looks like. There is a Theoben type trigger some people like, Benjamin builds marauders with Theoben triggers.

    I like airguns for less power, If I want to reach, a .22-250 AI with 1in8 twist and 75 grainers is ready to go. Big game? .35 Whelen will tip over anything roaming Montana. Back yard training? Varmit hunting in places starting to get built up?...

    Stayed home, but installed sling swivel studs in the matador, gave the stock a nice rubdown with boiled linseed oil. Installed Athlon Talos 4-14 BTR scope robbed off another gun. Pics or it didn't happen!

    Math in public can be so embarrassing. In #7 post above, I said 1 in 16 twist is 1.333 revolutions per foot of travel. Really it is .75 revolutions per foot of travel.

    I have 2 stars set up, one with large caliber bullet feed and one for small caliber bullet feed. It's just easier than changing feeding mechanisms when changing dies.

    In my experience, a good PCP holds pressure almost indefinitely. A CO-2 is always empty unless just filled. Have to admit, never had an good quality CO-2. But do have 1 starter grade PCP that does not hold air. Since making the leap and...

    Rotational velocity pulls bullets apart. Take your rifling twist, usually given in one revolution per inches and convert it to revolutions per foot. 1 in 8 = 1.5 1 in 12 =1 1 in 16 = 1.33333 Multiply by muzzle velocity to get revolutions...

    I built my 300 BO rifle with a 10 inch barrel and suppressor pinned and welded making it longer than 16 inches. I didn't enjoy the first 200 and didn't want to pay another 200 for an SBR.

    The recent buzz of the new EDgun Leshiy II had me sucked in. The Leshiy II is a nice semi auto, but perusing the EDgun web site, the Matador just might be the EDgun for me. WARNING! sticker shock may be severe! Many PCP air rifles are tender....
