    Check for over spinning the bullets. My guess is they aren't making it to the target.

    With just a broken extractor the case should fall out on it's own. Since the case had is not separated cerrosafe or epoxy is not beneficial. The first question is why the extractor failed and why the case is stuck? Normally a undersize brass rod...

    M-Tecs replied to a thread 1/2" at what range in Rimfire Area
    When scoring normal targets if the bullet touches the line you get the higher value. Per the OP all shots must be inside the 1/2" circle. The group can not touch the line. Group has to be less than .278" center to center if it is perfectly...

    I wish. Strange thing is most people get strangely quiet will they have to back it up with money. I have won three $100 bets on 1,000 yard shots or should I say lack of shots.

    To meet the OP's criteria each and ever shot has to be within plus or minus 1/8" of the absolute dead center for both POI and group size. Even at 25 yards with the best ammo and equipment (which I have) I don't believe I would claim I can do it...

    Since it started life as a 32-40 and was rebored I am assuming is an original?? If so dates of manufacture become somewhat important. Winchester started using stronger steels in the barrels around 1894 for the 94's and the 95's. Not sure when...

    megasupermagnum is spot on. Case volume will determine pressure. Some slow powders do odd things with too low of pressure. Powders like Unique work very well with the same charge in the 45 Colt and the 45/70 so loads like these would be fine for...

    At some higher end steak houses you get dry aged beef that has been aged 240 days. Is it tender, yes, but I don't care for the flavor. For beef 21 days to 90 days is were I like the flavor. Passed 120 days not so much. Aging any meat does effect...

    That would be Pyrex Hoppers. They work great on Dillon's. If you can find the proper size they would work great. You need 1 1/2" OD. They don't list sizes so you would have to call them. https://dramworx.com/products/
