    You get to western ND and the topography changes greatly. I was hunting in the Killdeer Mountains when I ran over a throne branch and I have a fast leak in one tire and a slower leak in another. I quickly changed the fast leak with the spare. I...

    Not saying this is the case with your loads but the bolt closing force on an M1, M14 and and AR have enough force to push the shoulder back when chambering. This isn't as true for sizing the body but it takes very little to push the shoulders back....

    Born and raised in ND. This is the norm when something like this happens. Same happened when my uncle was killed in a auto accident in 1970. That's what neighbors do in rural areas.

    Get rid of the Bore Butter patches. Horrible stuff. Try some different lube. It's not unusual for a barrel to take several hundred shots to break in. I did have one by Judge Resley years ago that just would not stop cutting patches, even after...

    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'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 Hornady Headspace Comparator does exactly what it is claimed to do and it does it very well. Hornady calls it a COMPARATOR for a reason. It was not designed as a direct measurement tool unless used in conjunction with a actual standard like a...

    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...

    If you are using the Lock-N-LoadŽ Headspace Comparator!/ that is a comparator only unless used in conjunction with an standard such as an actual headspace gauge. Something like the RCBS Case Mic gives...
