    M-Tecs replied to a thread Full auto .22 in Our Town
    Coming for a precision competitive background I had very little use for full auto. That is until I got to play with them some. It's hard to have that much fun with your clothes on. Rambo-ing an M60 with a 200 round belt is something that you...

    I have a RCBS FL sizer. It's an oddball from a box of spare die parts I got from some deal here on the board. Looks like there are enough parts to put together a complete die. The collet decap rod looks like some ham handed baggage handling...

    Duplicating the velocity is only one part of the equation. Duplicating the pressure with the same velocity is the real challenge. Per the owner, Tim Sundles claims that they use proprietary powders in some of their loads to get the performance...

    The JA barrels are should be timed and indexed so it should be a direct screw on. That is the point of the index mark on the receiver and the barrel. Just line up the lines in inspect the headspace. No chambering should be required unless the...

    Murphy replied to a thread .243 losing popularity? in Our Town
    Texas By God hit the nail on the head. I've spent most of my 67 years in rural S.E. Oklahoma. Off the top of my head, I can remember even the most remote country stores always having .243, 30-30, 270 and 30-06 on the shelves. To me, it seems the...

    There are three chamberings that should last for eternity. They are the .243, the .308, and the .358 Win. Why? They are all based on the same brass, all are easy to reform to the desired design, and with the three, you can hunt the world.

    Probably not needed, you are correct. A couple years ago, I did a restock job on an original. I had a tough time getting the cheek piece inlay out. I got it heated enough to pop out, and it appeared to have a pitch and asphaltum adhesive holding it...

    The expansion rate for lead can be found here. https://www.engineeringtoolbox.com/linear-expansion-coefficients-d_95.html Lead has a greater expansion rate than any of the materials commonly used in molds. That why the alloy effects the bullet...

    I epoxy them, and cut small silver nails to tack them in place. When you drill holes for them, slightly countersink, then peen the silver head into the flare, then file or sand smooth. Pretty much invisible. Just use some of your scrap silver, cut...

    Devcon has a tendency to change dimensions. Don't be surprised if you have to do some scraping on the bedding when you have had the metal out of the stock for very long.
