    As a kid I witnessed a grain elevator explosion. For the non-rural types grain elevators are large storage silo's. Grains of wheat are barely flammable. Wheat dust on the other hand is highly flammable/explosive. While I am not interested enough...

    MN allows face to face for residents on handguns. No FFL required unless you purchase them for resale. Than you are in business and need an FFL.

    That is a cleaning issue not a normal barrel wear issue.

    M-Tecs replied to a thread 17 Mach 2 in Rimfire Area
    Most of the issues are with the semi-auto's. I have Sako Quads, CZ 452 and Contenders in 17M2 and the Magnum Research in a Semi-Auto. Neck and shoulder cracks are more common than with the 17HMR but in either they are not a problem or a safety...

    Your friend is giving you bad advice. Rimfire's erode from the glass beads in the priming compound. With a borescope you can see it at about 20,000 rounds. On target rifles 50,000 rounds without loss is not unusual. I know of one range rental...

    Never tested for static but I have shot Blackpowder in cardboard tubes and a couple of junk 45-70 cases with 22 cal jacketed at about 3,900 FPS without detonation.

    One of the main issues with the early 17M2 in semi-auto's are dirty chambers. Later some of the manufacture oversized the chambers to limit this issue than cracked neck and shoulders became an issue. I have one of the first Magnum Research 17M2's....

    Given the choice of .357 Magnum or .45 Colt, neither of which are historically accurate in a Model 1873, I choose "none of the above". I feel so fortunate to have happened upon an affordable original in .38 W.C.F., when such could still be had for...

    I have a 45 ACP barrel that has about 30,000 rounds of cast through it and maybe 5,000 jacketed. It shows very little wear and zero loss in accuracy. This is just a guess but since a 308 with 175 jacketed bullets generally will get 4,000 plus...
