    Google a burn rate chart for imr or hodgdon powders with 4759 included. Pick a couple powders in the same area of the chart. My Lyman book is showing H380 has the best accuracy at 48 grains loaded at 2.735 oal. Use at your own risk tho. What book...

    Off topic, but about Colt. I dont believe its a lack of quality or interest in their products. I would say about half of us have a product produced by Colt or a copy of a Colt. But where is their innovation? Where are the new products, not just...

    Have you checked the barrel to stock alignment? If the barrel is pressing hard up against the stock crooked-like in the channel, that could cause problems. How about checking the action screws torque setting? Start at 15 inch lbs and move up to 23...

    Got my B22 FVSR back from Savage. Turns out it had a tight chamber. They reamed it and I put 200 rounds down it today at the range. All is well so far.

    I refinished a Glenfield 60 for a friend in college. It was his fathers and at some point my friend had acquired a lot of water damage in the stock and rust on the barrel. I took it and spent a week on the wood and a week on the barrel including...

    It sure didn't have much of a leade at all and absolutely no freebore. I use the 358-147 Elco HP mold in my 9mms to counter it. I should have sent it to you, but the the JB and this boolit ended up working out. I could never get used to the trigger...

    Either 36 grain MiniMag Hollowpoints or Winchester 42 grain Maxx Hollowpoints. Either whacks pretty hard and expand well in my experience. I would test them over a chronograph and for accuracy out of your Peacemaker. Those should be the determining...

    I had to fire Lapp my Kahr CW9 as it had a very short lead with very sharp rifling that tended to lead up. 20 rounds rolled in JB paste and a quick scrub, it was good to to go. very little leading if at all after that. Good stuff and will use it in...

    I had the same extraction issues on my B22FVSR. Was just fine for about the first 1000 rounds. Cleaned religiously. Took the bolt apart and scrubbed it clean. Worked for about fifty rounds. Same extraction problems came back. Bad enough it wouldn't...
