    truthfully 900 a piece would be a fair offer. I just never saw the hoopla around the pre 64 70s. To me there kind of blocky and homely like the first gen ruger 77s but even worse. Want a nice 70 take that 900 bucks and buy yourself a brand new...

    Lloyd Smale replied to a thread New 6.8 round. in Military Rifles
    why would the military be interested in a barrel burner that ran those kinds of pressures. Seems not only barrel life but the pounding a light weight gun would take at that level would make them short lived. Don't you find it ironic that we seem to...

    yup most test there guns at twice operating pressures. Kind of the industry standard. Do people overload guns and get hurt? Sure they do but some also drive there camaro a 150mph down a 2 lane road. You cant cure stupid. Even 38s that aren't rated...

    I have the chance to buy 2 unopened 4# cans of 4759 for $20 a lb. This seems like a good price but I have not had a chance to load this powder in the past. By all accounts, it seems to be one of the best powders for cast in rifles. What are your...

    Disassembles very easily and Stainless blades cleans up very easy. Just a sprayer on your kitchen sink gets all the meat off and a swish in the soapy water and its good to go. Wish the grinder was near as easy to clean as this thing.

    I do two passes once through and then once at 90 degrees from the first cut. I never measured what it would take but id guess somewhere between 3/4s and 1 inch anyway and you can push even bigger pieces in with a wooden dowel. Once they get grabbed...

    Leather dye will work, assuming the ramrod isn't too oily. I use ferric nitrate on new rods to darken them. You would do yourself a favor to find a split hickory ramrod if you want it to last.

    Well covered! I agree, the lock is the key. I have one rifle I kept track of, and on the first flint got 176 shots from it before it got too short to use in that particular rifle any more. If the lock geometry is correct, they last a long time. You...

    I'm starting to think that color is from the WD40. That's the color it turns when it oxidizes a bit. With that little bit of discoloration showing, I wouldn't even worry about it.
