    Anybody remember the Ramline 25 round magazines from way back when? I was looking through an old parts box and happened across it yesterday. I haven't checked it out or used it yet but that is on the agenda.

    I will keep that in mind. I held the bolt back and looked at the rails and other moving parts and everything was dry as could be. No oil anywhere. It was as if they assembled it without any lubricant at all. I expect it to function much better...

    I took the rifle to the range yesterday and fired about 70 rounds through it. I also picked up two of the clear 10 shot magazines on the way there. Accuracy was acceptable if not stellar. Suitable for squirrel hunting at least to 30 yards. I need...

    tazman replied to a thread Drew Blood Yesterday in Cast Boolits
    Years ago, I bought a brand new model 28 S&W. During the second trip to the range, I started feeling things hit me. Being a new shooter at the time, I didn't pay it much attention, until I looked down at my arm and saw some blood. The gun was...

    Norma Match. I need to get hold of some Eley Tenex to see if that is better. It can't be a lot better but may be a little bit.

    Last week, I picked up a CZ 457 Varmint MTR. The MTR stands for match target rifle. I spent a little time mounting a Vortex Crossfire II 6X18 on it and got it ready for the range. Then my wife and the weather got in the way for a few days. I...

    Good information on cleaning up the edges. I didn't know that might be needed.

    I love the feel and balance of single action revolvers in my hand and how they point. Right up until I pull the trigger and the pain starts when the trigger guard bites my knuckles.

    I, somehow, managed to come home with a Ruger 10/22 with a walnut stock. Just your standard blued steel and wood rifle. Nothing particularly special about it. I have no plans for "upgrades" to it. I just plan to shoot it for fun. It came with one...

    I love a good rifle in 30-06. It is my go to cartridge for any game larger than coyote. Those model 70 Winchesters were awesome rifles.

    I would suggest you run your standard primer load over a chronograph and try to match the velocity using magnum pistol primers. If 3.8 grains of Bullseye works for you when using standard primers, drop your powder charge a couple of tenths when...

    I can't wear gloves and cast. I am too clumsy with gloves on(think dropping the mold on a concrete floor). I am just very careful where my hands are when I cast.

    This^^^^^^^ I have never had an issue with the cases missing the dies when the indexing rod was properly adjusted. There are videos on Lee's web site and on Youtube showing how to do it easily.

    Here is a note from the FAC on the Berry's bullets site concerning their plated bullets. Notice, they make a specific mention of the 110 grain bullet. How fast can I shoot these bullets? We guarantee our Standard Bullets to handle velocities...

    I enjoy shooting my revolvers and my semi-autos both. It took me a while to adjust, but now I can shoot my semi-autos just as accurately as my revolvers. By getting better with my semi-autos, I also got better with my revolvers. Win win as it were....

    I know about tinnitus. I have had it for over forty years now. You do get used to it and learn to ignore it after a while, but it never goes away. I use plugs and muffs whenever I shoot unless hunting. I don't want it to get worse or lose what...

    tazman replied to a thread Case sizing lube in Cast Boolits
    I use Hornady One Shot spray lube. I have never had a stuck or difficult case while resizing while using it. It also cleans easily by tumbling for just a few minutes.

    No single shot rifles allowed in factory class. Rifles must be fed from a magazine. Either box or tubular is fine. My old Remington model 510 is out. Oddly enough, while a magazine of some type is required, you don't have to use it during the...

    No modifications of the gun except for triggers in factory class. No barrel replacements allowed. Good idea but a non starter in this situation. If I were looking at shooting unlimited, it would not matter. Only restrictions in unlimited is the...
