    I wish to add that what truly positively amazes me, while not mentioned, is the Internet which no doubt enable it all to happen! From a wonderful seller on the site I purchased a no-longer-made .45 Colt RCBS mould -- click (to buy), click (to pay),...

    Years back I had a Weaver scope on a .30-30 WCF lever which would also migrate forward. I meticulously cleaned both the 'scope and inside of rings, and reassembled to find exact spot where I wanted everything. I then put a teeny drop of Wite-Out...

    I'm hoping this helps, assuming you have not tried this avenue. To wit, Birchwood Casey offers quite the selection of covers for both ends of many, many scope sizes -- and I hope one (or more) of the size you seek is offered. They have a cover...

    I had taken Manhattan and similar fat, wet, 'phone books, and shot them at what I reckoned would be my maximum critter range to see what the pellet might do -- e.g., bounce off, travel part way, or -- all the way through the 'phone book. The...

    Using same bullet as you, I load IMR3031 to 25 grains; have done this load for years; and, probably will not ever try to "improve" upon it. My .30-30 is a Marlin 336 "beater"... A good read on this bullet is at...

    I salute your wisdom in taking apart mystery cartridges! It sounds as you have the bullet removal challenge licked; for me, a lot is based if I wish to re-use said bullet. You indicated you do not possess a rifle in this calibre, but do you have a...

    For what it's worth, my Number 1 concern was ricochet -- primarily the fired bullet bouncing back and hitting me or someone! (I still recall the "you'll get your eye shot out, or shoot someone else's" admonitions from Mom when I went "huntin'" with...

    "My" rule of thumb has been to take a sized, lubed, bullet, and drop it into a cylinder. If the bullet falls through by its own weight, or a thump of revolver to my other palm -- then it's too skinny. A fatter bullet is needed! At the other...

    John -- alamogunr -- you clearly are in the right frame re these firearms! One thought I maintain is that not only are they not being made anymore, but the most recent ones are more than a half-century old! Possibly not a good thing to write on a...

    I'll mirror what Alstep and others have posted, perhaps adding/reinforcing this one VERY important fact: To wit, you really can do damage to yourself, and most notably (op rod) your M1s, if you do not either use factory, or reload, loads...

    Sadly (for the firearms) I was present for two slam-fires. That in many military-style firearms the metal piece which hits the primer to break its anvil and ignite the powder is free floating is a major factor. Even in the course of another...

    Thanks for headsup/post! I've kind of wanted one of these (the HP358439) for quite a while. Guru Glenn Fryxell wrote a piece about it at; Western Bullets is selling these, made & lubed for roughly 16...
