    I had nothing but trouble with jams in my .300 blackout using different brands of GI type metal mags. I then saw a 20 rd. Magpul in the store and thought I'd try it. I have not had a problem since. I'm not saying that this will solve your problem...

    It sounds like it is time to search for a new church, not all of them are the same even within the same denomination.

    skeet1 replied to a thread Hot plate in Casting Equipment
    I guess I must be the cheapest of the cheap but I don't know what the wattage of my hotplate, I just know that I cost me about nothing from Harbor Freight. It works just fine and yes I know that it wont last long but who cares. When I goes bad I'll...

    Just wondering why you would need to modify a SWC for the Marlin 1894? Mine shoots SWC's just fine. Do I have something unusual? Ken

    skeet1 replied to a thread AR15 stock options. in Military Rifles
    I also prefer the fixed old school stock compared to the expandable. I have had the M4 stock before but it seem like I always left it set to the max length and it was not nearly as solid as the fixed so I replaced it. Ken

    I wonder how many who consider the low numbered Springfields to be unsafe would still shoot a Krag. The Krag has the same steel and heat treat of the low number Springfield. I guess what I'm saying is that if the Krag is safe to shoot with low...

    I have a CZ American 22 hornet that punctured the primers about every other one and it turned out to be the firing pin length was to long. I shortened it and reprofiled it and have not had another problem. Great rifle by the way! Ken

    I shoot a 1898 Krag and use lead bullets lubed with Carnuba Red and don't have any leading issues. At the end of most shooting I just run a dry patch through the bore and it's is left nice and shiny and once and a while I give it a through cleaning....
