    They didnt make the brace for the Jennings, and if it works for my girlfriend, then I will make one for my Ruger Mk1 or one of my Browning Hi Powers. I told her, As long as she is able to hit a Man Size Target at 300 yards Standing, then I am...

    The slower powder usually generates more pressure at the same velocity. Lead can only take so much pressure before in deforms because it is softer than the Jacketed bullet, even with a GC. The Lee manual has a whole section on that and reducing...

    The velocity might be right for Cast, but it does not transfer from Jacket to Cast in a linier fashion. But the Pressure from the 3031 may be your downfall. You might want to start a little lower with a little filler, or just find a powder with...

    The Issue would be Casting Good HP boolits out of Pure Lead. My experience has been, they come out undersized and the details are not crisp especially with a HP mold. Add at least 1% tin or lead free solder to get them to cast better. But the PC...

    The BATF regulates the use of Shoulder stocks on Handguns except Black powder firearms. But yes, it would be a good idea that you get a clarification from the BATF to be sure they can not deem what you put on is considered or can be used as a...

    A Secure Room made out of wood studs and drywall is not secure no matter what Door you put on it. Concrete or Brick including the floor and ceiling would be the best, and then the Door is your weakest point. Over the years in doing construction, I...

    I found the Brace. Like I am going to throw something away. I still have the 10" barrel and fake suppressor around her somewhere too. The brace is simply a single arm version of a Wrist Rocket Sling shot frame. The one for my 1911 had both legs...

    I made a wrist brace on a Jennings J 22 a few years back as a joke when I installed a 10" piece of barrel liner on it and made a fake suppressor out of PVC pipe painted black. I couldn't see the sights with the fake supressor , so I installed a...

    Yeah, we have a small heat wave going on. There are no facilities or running water at the range, so...I'll wait a bit. :) When it gets down to a chilly 100 it will be fine. :) On the other hand, winter time is rough down here - some days I actually...

    @tdoyka. You can still pick up Yugo 24/47s and 48's plus turk 98s at reasonable prices, especially if they have a bad barrel or stock. You are going to replace them anyway, so why pay for something good that you are not going to use. And if money...

    I built one of each, a 257 bob and a .257 AI on Yugo 24/47 actiions. They worked great with the slightly shorter action over the standard 98. I also built two 25-06's , one on a Yugo action and the other on a Turk 98 action. I sold the two .257's...

    Do not use a wire wheel on your molds. It will break the edges over into the cavity, leaving you with fins where the mold halves close. I received a mold on a trade from a fellow that cleaned up the mold before sending it to me, as a kind gesture. I...
