    Bunch of brass is prepped and ready to load, have a bunch of cast Lee 309-170 bullets sized, gas checked, and powder coated. As soon as I can write down loads I'm putting in the cases on an index card... Still doing some digging. I really want to...

    Online non-cast 4198 isn't listed in load data. Lyman Cast Bullet manual lists it. Like varget it is a "staple" in my pantry so I'm going to give it a try. Am really not having good luck with loads for BL-C(2) powder. Jacketed yes. But with a...

    Thanks for the info. The rifles (and Enfields in general) are noted for being oil soaked right behind the bolt, where the stock begins. The guns were oiled and stacked butt down. Naturally over time that oil tended to permeate the wood where it...

    The most 22 I have "used" in the last 10 years was giving my sisters youngest grandson some for when he goes up north with his family he can get some "range time" in. During the tribulations post Sandy Hook the kid was still shooting my Y2K...

    I never really could figure that thing with the .22's out. Can't easily reload it so have to buy it. But one has to wonder is this a case of people snapping it up because there was a shortage before? Or did they maybe get caught short before? ...

    You do know that some of that hand sanitizer is bootleg. Nothing more than lube from lover's lane and some green food coloring in an empty sanitizer bottle.

    Working on brass for 308 test loads to be loaded as time permits. Have about 100 annealed, sized, and trimmed so ready for powder. Have some PC I can do as the weather has warmed up a bit outside making the garage more comfortable. Have a...

    Be nice or I will send you a picture of myself in "business casual" when working from home, you best hope I tie the robe shut or... well a wire brush and some bleach won't be able to scrub that image from your brain. Assuming you can find bleach. ...

    I'm just in the process of loading to find out. Still have some cosmoline to clean off too. So I can't speak from experience to your question. These are reported to be very accurate. They have a 12 round magazine and take the Enfield style...

    Only thing I can figure is we better send a warning out to gun shows and gun shops that a bunch of BP junkies are planning on taking up shoplifting rifles. I have a limited list of firearms I would buy. Limited by my imagination, "I could see...

    Thanks for the confirmation. It is an interesting rifle. Last bolt action issued as main rifle to regular military of a country. Indian Home Guard. Filled a niche of using existing factory (jobs saved) to produce a useful rifle that is still in...

    I'm not sure where the pressure will show up. The Ishapore was manufactured from scratch to be a 308. They used some parts and tooling from the Mk3 but they also redid several things to match the requirements of the 7.62 NATO cartridge. The Home...

    Need to develop a load for an Ishapore in 308. I like Enfield in 303 so this was a natural when my thoughts turned to 308 caliber bolt guns. I have an assortment of powders. Some I know I'm going to try in the initial 4 or so powders I'll try...

    Just wondering what others are doing to pass their time while staying home. Internet streaming TV on Hulu and the kids got us a year of Netflix for Christmas. I have a bunch of casting and reloading tasks to get around to. Brass to prep,...

    I was hoping to meet the gunsmith there who is drilling and tapping for a scope mount that I need to pick up. He usually has a table at that show. Thing is it may be that dear wife being concerned about my health may make that trip a problem. Not...
