    Then-Hercules/now-Alliant Blue Dot is kind of a "Man without a country". It was released c. 1975 and intended for HEAVY loads in 3" Magnum 12 gauge lead pellets of 1-3/4 oz. to 1-7/8 oz. I recall Bob Milek writing a long article about Blue Dot in...

    While there are instances where you don't want to use a cutting oil (cast iron is one that comes to mind). For most machining, a cutting oil or fluid will reduce vibration, produce a better finish and extend the life of your cutters. For many...

    Doubleg, The only issue I see at this point is that the LFN (Long Flat Nose) bullet may be overly long for the magazine. Have your tried it? I took two white tails last Fall with a 280gr Wide Flat Nose fired from my 77/44 at 1750fps. Both...

    16 to 1 alloy is my preferred alloy for m Lyman Devastator HPs in my 44 magnums. I push them at 1200 to 1600 fps depending on barrel length with H110.

    I think if you only shoot sensible cast boolit loads that it will be a long time before your new barrel is "broken in". That is because cast boolits are very easy on barrels. I know you will get a variety of opinions on when to clean the barrel on...

    Ya gonna shoot cast out of the 7mm TCU? If so the Soupcan GB mold or the Lee work pretty well with Junior1942's load of WC820 (N). Think his web site is still up

    Put a 10% federal tax on the 26.1 billion American dollars that individuals in the U.S. send to Mexico in wire transfers each year. Think 10% is too much? Sales tax in the city of Los Angeles is real close to that. Yep! Belongs in The Pit.

    If I were to try to make such an air rifle I think I'd most likely try to figure out a way to attach my air supply remotely. What I mean is that I'd try to set up my air supply so as to be able to carry it in my back pack with a high pressure air...

    A post-war 32 S&W Long can do everything I want a 32 caliber revolver to do. I have examples here of all 4 calibers listed, but most of the loading I do in 32 H&R and 327 shoot 100 grain SWCs in the 850-1000 FPS range--a thing the 32 Long can...

    I'm a recent fan. MILSPEC floats my boat. Iron sights rock too. Still love the old stuff. My credit card is proof of that. Once in a while, I buy a gun magazine. Share it with the newbies. Then they ask questions. I show them the world of...

    Nice clean friendly place. Good food too. The morning paper was available for anybody who wanted to read it. Several copies to be exact. While the old timers took in the fake news, I perused a couple of gun sites on my smart phone. Felt awkward at...

    Yep. Me too. Fast food jobs aren't careers unless you're in management. I always tip at local eateries with servers and waitresses.

    You can't mill in a drill press. Drill press quills and spindles are not designed to take side loads and I don't know of any drill presses that have collet type tool holders that will hold an end mill or milling cutter securely. Milling should not...

Μολὼν λαβέ; approximate Classical Greek pronunciation [molɔ̀ːn labé], Modern Greek [moˈlon laˈve]), meaning "Come and take them" is a classical expression of defiance reportedly by King Leonidas in response to the Persian army's demand that the Spartans surrender their weapons at the Battle of Thermopylae.
