    Wow. I didn't know they made mim firing pins. They are making bolts out mim and they are snapping. I would go with the solid one. Be well

    I have seen 3 m305 or Chinese m14 clones they all failed under normal shooting (or so the owners claim) They did not fail catastrophically as in the pic but did bend the op rod, barrel, receiver, bolt and other bits and no barrel burst like that....

    Work in progress. Seriously proper fit and a good barrel you should get good groups. I get 2moa and on a good day and every once and a while you get ragged little holes, but all the gun powder gods are with you and guiding every boolit to paper....

    I agree. That was catastrophic to part a barrel like that. Even a weak section would not burst like that with out prior sign of impending failure. The fracture lines are near perfect like a sudden burst occurred and excceeded the limit of the...

    I would remove the barrel, cut one thread off and reset the headspace. There is no extractor cut on p14s, there is clearence provided on the later models but i dont think its nessesary unless you are swiming in the mud. Be well

    I know I am right BOS, I helped DP several cno7 many were new straight out of the transit chest, and yes I still have the taste of vomit in my mouth. None were DP marked, that was left to the end user to do. I have a LEC with stamped out of service...

    I have many small lots of powder from decommissioning old ammo. The LGS comes across some from time to time so I turn some into drill rounds and I can keep the powder. I recycled some had great j-thingy loads but no more of that powder to shoot,...

    Some off the Russian 22's have the removable pan I like the system but never applied it. The thread is quite fine and they sit in small tapers to ensure concentricity. One problem is holding the work piece to effect machining to them, kind of like...

    I had the same results. I have since beagled and PCed my 185 Lee's with good to outstanding results. It's a good boolit! Every failure is a means to a successful load and you also know what won't work. The 314299 is a great boolit too. Be safe

    I have seen it in many European loadings, calibers that the above have mentioned. I have a bunch of 6.5x55mm from Norway with the same powder type. FN, Norma and DWM used this or a similar powder.
