    You are correct, although the accepted story is that all bolts had to be removed from any rifles and were tossed in an oil drum for the trip home. Meanwhile, the G.I.s spent their shipboard time sanding and "prettying up" their rifles which resulted...

    I've got it....it's Hillary's revenge! Oh, okay...............so much for trying to inject a little humor into the situation. Still getting the red page as of 1:47 on 11/26.

    Still getting the red page and warning since yesterday. I can access the site if I repeatedly hit the "this is not a deceptive site" button, but I have to fumble around trying different approaches to get access. Once in, I still have a narrow red...

    My tang safety 7-08 is a bell ringer. The trigger on a tang safety 77 can be made into a thing of joy pretty easily. I think you'll be pleased. I've putzed around with a number of 7mm moulds. IMHO, The best of the best for putting together a...

    I've used it in 30-06 (good), 8x57 Mauser (excellent) and 15 grains in a 6.5 Jap of all things. The 15 grain load will ring the gong at 200 yards every time if I do my part. That 16 grain load in any "full size" military cartridge is an excellent...

    I had to reply to this post.......the type 38 and 99 rifles were evaluated by the H.P.White Laboratories years ago (at the request of P.O. Ackley, noted gunsmith) and the report said the heat treating was the most elaborate they'd ever seen. Each...

    Go to this forum's main page. Go down to the bottom and click on the "castpics" box. It will take you to a whole host of information. Also, respect what Pressman said......the Truline press is a little thing from an era long ago. It'll do the job...

    You and me both. I've been casually looking. I couldn't believe the 7 x 57 wasn't even listed in sako rifles. WTH over? Sure I have milsurp and the 7-08 but I'd really like a modern 7mm mauser in stainless for a hunting rifle. Sakes alive,...

    Opening morning I had to honk at an 8 pointer to get him out of the road. I have 3 of them hanging. Monday morning was so quiet in the snow I literally walked up on a buck. When I shot him a doe ran in to see what was happening. I could have...
