    Envious of your light trigger pull! But, I would take the precaution of subjecting it to a "slam the butt on the ground" test to make sure it doesn't jar off.

    It's not that 219's have bad barrels, it's that they have mean triggers that are not amenable to adjustment. Kind of hard to make bughole groups when you're having to squeeze the trigger with a death grip that would make a boa constrictor proud.

    I've never ever heard of one chambered for a rimless cartridge. Not saying it couldn't be engineered, but it would be a PIA and the net result wouldn't justify it to me. I recently picked up one in .25-20. It should be a hoot, and thanks to...

    gnoahhh replied to a thread .223 flat base in Military Rifles
    This, primarily. I would put a fairly heavy chamfer on the case mouths before I started fretting about worn expander balls and stuff. I have followed that protocol for about a half century now and I honestly can't recall collapsing a case mouth with...

    I have a .30 throating reamer which works superbly with long heavy bullets. It's a tapered reamer- 1 1/2 degree included angle (that's 3/4 degree per side). It has interchangeable pilots that ride the lands from .299 to .302 in .0005" increments for...

    For sale: One full box/1000 Lyman .35 GC's, and a partial box of approximately 7-800 of same. $25 shipped in a SFRB (if you don't mind the contents of one of the boxes be dumped in a baggie as it is too big to fit in a SFRB).

    With no heirs (I'm the last of the bloodline) I hope to heck that I have a chance to see that all my odd ball stuff (which is mostly what I own) is gifted to deserving parties as well as the kit with which to manage them. Barring that, I guess I...

    Don't bother slugging the bore and measure throat diameter instead, via either chamber cast or pound cast, and size bullets accordingly. You're welcome.

    gnoahhh replied to a thread Savage 219 in Single Shot Guns
    Yep. That and the need to figure out how to extract rimless cases. Have you considered .22 K-Hornet or .218 Bee (or its big brother .218 Mashburn Bee. Nips at the heels of the Fireball). For real exclusivity perhaps the R2 Lovell. (I'm being...

    I found that dry graphite lube eased things tremendously, making the original spring friendlier. Lube: scribbling on the bearing surfaces with a #2 pencil is sufficient.

    I would simply grab a Criterion barrel and not look back. If it's for a sporter build there's no point in spending as much (or more) for a milsurp barrel as what a new Criterion barrel sells for from the CMP. Having owned a few now, I can pretty...

    If I go under a bus I'll bequeath my supply of 4759 to y'all. You can fight over who gets it!

    I sure hope you bought it (and then wrestled him into divulging if he had any more)! I have around 20 pounds in my stash, and even at that I've started using it sparingly. Best darned powder for .30 cast shooting I've ever known. Others work well...
