    My 7mm TCU needed a stronger hammer spring to fire CCI small rifle primers in that round, had it installed. Worked beautifully since.

    You could get velocity data back then with a ballistic pendulum - You fire into a pendulum designed to capture the boolit and the momentum of that boolit causes the pendulum to swing backwards, the number of degrees it moves can be "mathed on" to...

    Mr_Sheesh replied to a thread This still bugs me... in Our Town
    Killing potential buyers tends to cut WAY down on the number of firearms they'll buy, though. Same when people swept by a muzzle tell the store people "OK, you aren't fixing this issue, you lose my business" and leaving. It's good to be firm, but...

    Amazon isn't perfect. I bought some USB storage devices (Sandisk Cruzer Fit 16 GB ones, tiny and barely protrude from the socket; I add rings and a small bit of Type 1A paracord or I'd have to use pliers to remove them! Tiny.) Anyways. I had them...

    Brian I can feel your pain. As you may remember I have been dealing with an incurable cancer for almost eight years now. And in the last couple of weeks it has begun to affect one of my kidneys requiring a trip to the emergency room a transfer to...

    The whole idea in using a longer casing for a revolver or single-shot shot shell is to get more shot en route to the target, when you squeeze the trigger. .38 Special is a nice long size for a shotshell anyways, nice long case at 1.155 in (29.3...
