    Nice bike. I miss mine. 2016 ZX-14R SE. Sold it during the (ongoing) divorce to pay for money grubbing lawyers. Hope you get yours back.

    Hopefully that’ll show up as far as the roughness/unpolished barrel with the flash.

    I had so many issues with the primer slide when I had my LnL. The last rep I spoke to told me I used the press to much and had too many parts failures. I had to replace the shell plate holder itself as they considered it a wear item and didn’t want...

    So I picked up a handful of the bullets to run through the sizer. I’ve got a small tube of cheap chapstick that was given to me that I use, essentially as sizing wax since I’ve misplaced my imperial can. Out of approx 100 pulls, most of them went...

    Be forewarned that the all weather Henry’s are NOT stainless. Good guns, but I wouldn’t put them ahead of my marlins. My Henry big boy 41 has such a rough finish I can literally file my nails on it like an emery board. The receiver scope mount...

    I’ve used 296 the most with supersonic jacketed Loads. I’ve played with 4227 and CFE BLK as well. CFE BLK has great load density and has had low SD for me but not the velocity of 296. Lilgunnhasnt given me the accuracy 296 did somit was abandoned...

    I have an Anschutz 1700 series in a hornet. The rim recess is deep. In comparison, some european brass has a thicker rim than us brass, hence; i set my sizer to headspace off the shoulder to prolong case life. I would not hesitate to set it back...

    If the gun is new and the action is tight and hasn't been worn in yet, cycling will improve after break in and may fix your problem. For now, try a slower powder. The heavier bullet might be too slow to develop enough slide velocity to...

    That’s a good question. I’ve got some bullet comparators and a concentricity gauge. I’ll try to look at this scientifically and see what I can report. I’m open to suggestions on what to look for and report.

    Love colibris in the guns that done like CB's. When I shoot the CB or colibiris out of my Remington Mod 41 TargetMaster, they are eerily silent. The pin hitting the rim is louder than the actual report. Love to use them in the back yard. I prefer...

    I love my BL-22. Picked it up used years ago. Frequent companion to the range. I find the short throw lever is "easier" for the kids to "learn" on. Has dovetail slot so there is no need for any bases. I love mine for sure.

    I got the 308 body die from NOE. I think it’ll just round them up. If it’s .311” one way it’s .306 the other. Like an egg. So hopefully rounds them up enough to plink with.
