    I vote for using a pin gage set as the easiest method to determine chamber diameter. Some minor variation in chamber diameter is not uncommon. It's particularly noticeable when ball diameter is not particularly oversize for the larger chamber. The...

    Well, you made the effort, which is what is ethically required. Makes me uncomfortable when no matter my efforts, the hoped-for result doesn't come, but one's best is all anyone can provide. Precisely what happened to one in our hunting party...

    yeahbub replied to a thread Fn 49 in Military Rifles
    Back in the '90's, I found a beat up middle-eastern '49 in 8mm for cheap, ordered a surplus new 8mm barrel because the surplus ammo was plentiful and a .30 cal blank to make a copy of the original barrel. It sat around a while until finally I had an...

    You're right, Mazo. I noticed that also. Maybe it would be better to write it 4-4-1, in terms of measures of each ingredient. It works that way.

    yeahbub replied to a thread Feral Dogs in Hunting with CB's
    Where I roam the hills, a .357 carbine serves for whatever I might see out there. An SKS or .223 would do as well. Feral dogs used to be a real problem around the area. My brother was once harassed by a group of them, dissuading them with shots from...

    Mine is a 20" pre-Taurus model. I can manage 11 .357's at 1.59" and my spring sticks out some 5-6" beyond the end of the mag tube, so spring length probably isn't the issue. That last one in won't move 1/8" beyond the end of the loading gate. Twelve...

    My favorite cast load for the x39 is the Lyman 311466, a gas check Loverin design with lube grooves all the way up. I lube with Carnauba Red and have never had leading trouble in my chromed bore. Size them to the throat but no larger than a loaded...

    yeahbub replied to a thread tulu HP in Military Rifles
    My experience with 7.62x39 HP ammo is that Wolf used copper-washed steel tubing bullets with a lead core and plastic plug in the boat tail portion, which was open, by the way. I never could get that stuff to group decently, but the effect on a row...
