    I have a roller in 40-65. The only problem I have had is seating a balky cartridge from black powder fouling, and the extractor doesn't have the leverage others have. If your careful with your ammo you should have no problems. Mine is very accurate.

    Assuming the original ad was correct, the breech end of the Remington 514 barrel looks like this: I'm thinking that could reduced section could be threaded and then a "chamber" could be screwed onto it that was just the size necessary for the...

    Shipping would make it not worthwhile. I sent you a link to another one that the seller had listed.

    But it's colder... And if you are wanting to keep the ice cream that you just bought at the store to not be a milkshake by the time you get home, it can make sense. The good thing about the 2-liter bottles is that they are *very* watertight and...

    I won a bid on eBay for a Remington 514 barrel (24.5" long) that is chambered in .22LR. No one else was bidding on it and I thought that just maybe I can use it to make a test barrel for the .25 or .22 power loads. Supposedly, the chamber end of...

    I keep a couple of 2-liter soft drink bottles filled with salt water and frozen in my deep freezer at all times and toss them in a cooler if we are going grocery shopping and might not be back home directly. When I used to be into cycling and would...

    There are quite a few videos and web pages about how to convert a cheaper cooler into one that can hold ice for as long as the Yeti type coolers. Nothing magic happening with the Yeti type coolers -- it's just thicker insulation.

    Well, if you've got the freezer to do that with, you could just go ahead and freeze your own ice. :) I used large stainless steel bowls for making my ice for a cooler.

    I have a Douglas 40 cal long basic blank. 1 in 16" twist 29.5" long unturned and not chambered. It is in new condition when I got this I had planed on a wildcat project. I sprayed rust prevent in it and put it away. I'm asking $200 plus shipping.

    Kind of illustrates the inconsistencies in manufacturing when 6 holes that are done on the same gun at the same time are slightly different. Probably would have never noticed with regular ammo, but since we're right at the edge of manufacturing...

    The cast iron pot that I used to smelt in came with a lid. To minimize the chance of tinsel fairie attacks, I would hold the lid right in front of the pot with one hand and use the other hand to add the wheelweights around the side of the lid. If...

    Don't think it was 15 years ago... Probably 8 years ago... At least that seems about right on how long it's been since I've seen .22LR bricks so readily available that the stores were running ads with sales on them. And it wasn't just about saving...

    I'm thinking "granule" just sounds too small when you're talking about that type of powder. Maybe "pellets" would be a better term... :)

    According to the wiki page: So, the powder could vary depending upon the distance needed and the weight of the projectile being used. With the full 660 lb powder load, you would be looking at 4,620,000 grains (weight). Now, the *physical*...

    I'm not really concerned with that. I figure separating powder charge from projectile was good enough for the 16" guns on the Iowa class battleships, it's good enough for me. :)

    I was at Wal-mart today and went over to the ammo cabinet to see if .22LRs were becoming more available. Surprisingly, I saw a pretty good assortment, most going for around $3.50-4.50 per 50. I did see 2 of the 500-round bricks of Remington...
