    I have several rifles I built that have never had a jacketed bullet in them. As long as you have good fit and lube, the cast will shoot fine without any special process.

    One reason they may have not had much to say, they may have not known much. When I worked for a company doing AK47 compliance conversions, I was the ONLY real gun guy in the shop. It was a job for trained monkeys, and that was what was working...

    Different type of pistol and different shooting technique but my Remington XP-100 6mm BR will hold 1 1/4" five shot group at 300 yards constantly.

    Correct. 0 (zero) ohms is basically a piece of wire with no breaks in it. You have 3 power connections on the MC pot (240v) L1 - hot 1 L2 - hot 2 Ground

    What does any of this have to do with Paper Patching? This should be moved to the "Muzzle loading" section.

    The more you shoot them the more accurate they (you) are. I have a Ruger .22 semi auto that I can go out to my hundred yard rest, and hit an 8X10" gong pretty much of the time. We shot our .44's and .45's at a 960 yard target during a break at a...

    I worked for three gun companies. Don't expect to make much money. There aren't many true custom shops anymore, as the younger generation seem enamoured with black guns now. Learning to actually build guns takes a long time. I've been at it for 40...

    M-Tecs replied to a thread Winchester 1885 in Single Shot Guns
    Since it started life as a 32-40 and was rebored I am assuming is an original?? If so dates of manufacture become somewhat important. Winchester started using stronger steels in the barrels around 1894 for the 94's and the 95's. Not sure when...

    Not really sure about statement about milk or buttermilk changing the taste? I have never found that to be true unless it was to remove foreign tastes like sage or the iron taste of excess blood. Deer or antelope that have been feeding on sage...

    megasupermagnum is spot on. Case volume will determine pressure. Some slow powders do odd things with too low of pressure. Powders like Unique work very well with the same charge in the 45 Colt and the 45/70 so loads like these would be fine for...

    No, not in the casting business but between work, Air National Guard, competitive shooting schedule and family when I would cast it would be for 2 or 3 days for 12 to 16 hours a day.
