    I have a #1 in 6mm Remington that shoots under an inch, with a 75 grain 'J' moly bullet. It's free floated. So the rest has to be close to the action or it strings a bit. It took me awhile to figure that out. When I shot from a bipod, the forend...

    Bash them if you will, but my AR's drive tacks. I used to own a HK91 and in addition to destroying my cases, target acquisition was very slow, due to the weight. Make no mistake, the M16/AR15 is a killing machine, if I had to defend myself, one of...

    OS OK nailed it. Notice the firing pin is dragging as well. The case is starting to eject before the firing pin retracts. I've used this method for 50 or 60 years and it's served me well...

    It's always been my understanding, that killing wasn't the desired effect. A wounded adversary, that requires labor intensive treatment, was thought to be prefered.

    I always try BLL when the bullets drop from the mold at the right size, i.e. 38spl at .358. Otherwise, I'll run them through my RCBS Lube Matic. I made up a batch of 120 gr TC bullets loaded with Titegroup and BLL for my CZ75 and they leaded the...

    I pressure pour with a ladle. I've owned several bottom pour pots, and have never been able to make them drop a bullet, that rivaled the quality of ladle poured. I'll try bottom pour again this summer, hopefully I'll have better results.

    I think inletting any stock is a job for a skilled craftsmen. I've tried it and glass bedding several times without success. Shop around until you find a gunsmith that can handle it. The last time I bought that service, was 20 years ago and I paid...
