    Yes it will feed the very long bullets used by the long range competitors out of a 308 length mag. With the .260 using the same long bullets the mag runs out of space.

    Leave it in blackland dirt and let it rain on it and you can’t make it shine again.

    Iím not sure how many hundreds of folks that have built annealing machines with my ďbladesĒ but it makes for a pretty simple machine that doesnít require any extra parts to go from 22 Hornet to 50 BMG or anything in between.

    Sorry I didn’t see this until this morning. I keep my print in the shop I sent you a pm to see how close we are. One difference I (think) I can see is that you left no room for a fillet in your weld. I make my lugs so the barrel sits on top of...

    In the early 1900's it was very common for competition shooting. It greatly reduces fouling. Most BP competitions do not allow it today. http://castboolits.gunloads.com/showthread.php?137201-Black-powder-duplex-loads

    Great thread, Texas! I have decided to find a Marlin in 30-30 to send to JES for the same conversion. But I really want a straight grip stock.

    I have lot of them and I have a lathe so I can thread my own barrels but there are aftermarket outfits that sell threaded barrels for most popular rifles and pistols. With the right ammunition they can be incredibly quiet.

    I use the RS-100, even empty cases canít fall from position. 357 max empty is only ~.150Ē shorter than a .223 case and .223 rim diameter is about the same as 357 max case diameter.

    I bought one just because it also came with a threaded barrel. Feels “cheap” if you’re used to $1500-3000k custom pistols or even Glocks but I guess they are lots cheaper. Mine has been more reliable than other more expensive 22 pistols but I...

    No disagreement. I love the.17 Mach 2. My favorite is a Magnum Research semi-auto with a Kidd two stage trigger, I also have the .17 Mach 2 in CZ's, Sako Quads and Contenders. That doesn't change the fact that the cartridge is almost dead. ...

    That is one of the primary reasons the cartridge is on life support. Dirty chambers in a shouldered rimfire in semi-auto don't mix so chamber dimension's between manufactures vary greatly. Between the case splits and slam fires ammo manufactures...

    If you have the bottom part of the separator in water, you not only get a rinse but you also reduce the surface tension of your solution trying to keep a pin inside a case.
