    That will sit well atop of it. I have a couple of Ruger American Compacts (223, 308) and was thinking of Timney Triggers. The cheapest I have found them at is $AU440!!!!!! I might be doing a DIY job on them!

    I can't address how government contractors get by with this. Within actual government agencies you have to have a equal or higher security clearance and most importantly an need to know. Of course inside threats will always find a way to...

    I've shipped over 150 muzzleloaders. All went double boxed, with bubble wrap and paper around the gun, bubble wrap around the inner box. Never had a problem. Depending on how far you ship in CONUS, cost used to run around $65-75 insured before I...

    As usual Larry is spot on with his advice. Both loads of the OP's smokeless loads are recommended trap door loads. In many loadings Smokeless Powder has a softer pressure curve than BD. I used to load for a reenactment group mostly with smokeless...

    The difference in peoples experiences on this type of stuff always surprised me. Between my 650's and my 1050 I have loaded 80K to 100K of bottleneck cases. Mostly .223 and 308. I do have a vacuum and compressed air at each machine. Never stuck...

    Dad had some Herter's that sound like a direct match. That was in 1970. They were purchased in the late 50's or 60's. They didn't perform well on game so they just sat on the shelf until I started shooting/reloading as a kid. I shot about 250 of...

    Coming from a family of hunters, I had no input from any family or friends about what a good handgun brand was. Sure, I'd heard of Colt and Smith & Wesson for years (who hadn't?). I'd owned a few handguns and had worked my way up to a Dan Wesson...

    My experience with brass moulds is cast fast and keep it as hot as possible. I have the Mihec 432640 cramer mould and I had the devil of the time with the HP pins until it was really hot. My 180 .30 hunter is exactly the same.

    Prices were actually pretty decent at our local show last weekend. I picked up a near pristine O3A3 for hundreds less than I expected. Another guy got a nice Kimber in unfired condition for $450.
