    The moms gun was empty before he took it. Probably didn't know what to do at that point and that's why he got close enough to grab it.

    Saw this on livePD. Made me proud of our Okie ladies. In the interview they were still shaken and tearful. Said they just kept telling him to stop and leave, but apparently since they recognized him he had other intentions. Cops said he was...

    jcren replied to a thread Bead Blasting and rust in Our Town
    Most people refer to glass bead media as bead blasting. Much more aggressive than I would like, however soda blasting using baking soda would work well.

    Breakdown is actually easy after you do it a time or two and see how everything fits together. 2 pins and 2 sliding wedges are all it is.

    Contact Doug! His basic accuracy package for semi autos (polish, throat and crown) is a bargain and should be figured into the purchase price of any cast shooter. He can also customs throat it for specialty loads. Wanna shoot brand X 260 grain...

    No, velocity and gas volume at the port are not necessarily related. Red dot is very fast, spiking pressure and accelerating the bullet in the first few inches of barrel, then pressure starts to drop. 4895 on the other extreme end, starts the bullet...

    Love mine, and I have proof she is more than a range toy! About 200 pounds from 70 yards. The Lee 200rf passed clean through and dropped him right there. She has accounted for 2 more 50-60 pounders since.

    Not familiar with that weapon, but if it is gas operated, red dot is not going to work. Much too quick burning and pressures are starting to drop be for the bullet passes the port. Do a Google search for a current thread here about finding the...

    Sounds like a oven temp/ time issue with the cure or a rough sizing die. If you checked the temp with a accurate oven thermometer (the settings/dial lie) and cooked for the recommended time, polish your die a bit with some emory on a dowel. I...

    How about a "under card" type thing molded to fit the keydrive with an integral 1/8" or so "card" base that fit a wad snugly? Could insert into the slug, dab of glue to attach the plug/card into the base of the wad so it would drop away immediately...

    7 is stiff! I have ran that much for woods carry loads but got my fill of them pretty fast for plinking. The slide will rap the frame smartly and you will feel it. I don't think your gun will thank you for very many of them. I run 5.6 for general...

    The Lee 200 swc (traditional lube design) is a solid version of the classic h&g 68. Hard to beat for general purpose 1911 use.

    My wife and I have 3 380's and I treat em like reloadable 22's. At 7-8 cents a bang you can't beat em. Plus she gets lots of practice with her carry gun!

    Had a case of 45 colt that looked too full, but had decapped and primed just fine. Dumped it and found a 40 brass stuck with media inside! The decap pin had passed through both cases.

    If it is silver, that's about $100 you are holding. Nice way to recoup some cost!

    Don't load that bullet, but a word of safty/caution. I load the Lee 200 rf colt bullet in 45 acp. As long as I crimp just before or just after the crimp groove, no problem. I had some set up with the case mouth flush with the crimp groove and had a...

    Unless the mold is just too big, I just size after. I haven't had this problem, but if a bullet passes the smash test then you are either having to size beyond the flex of the pc or you need to polish your die. If the pc flakes on the smash test,...

    That middle .405 has an arrow above it, indicating that the horizontal .38 diameter is measured .405 up from the base. On up, you have .58 from the base measures .24 in diameter and is the beginning of the nose radius. Up from that is the overall...
