    I've had no problem with the amount of lube it carries. Good Luck.

    Actually I believe Latvia did have its own version of the Mauser in .303 British. I don't think it went into production. It was a common practice for smaller European countries that had acquired large quantities of British MGs left over from WW1 to...

    I DO tend to over-think and perhaps over-do some of my reloading efforts. It sounds from the consensus view like a simple taper crimp or a touch on the crimping shoulder with the 30 Carbine seater die set properly should suffice, and has for a...

    I think there were four different models. I found pictures of two. What does yours look like? I think one of the other two is made like the newer Hornady one. It has a sliding charge bar. I think these two use rotors similar to an RCBS Lil' Dandy. ...

    Mega: the difference in shooting is the number of shots fired in a short amount of time. In Trap you are on the line with 4 others and each shoots his target in a round robin type order, one shot about every 2-3 minutes. In a tactical class...

    I repeat, Chromebook 14 will not support video download from SD cards. This platform runs off of apps and cloud. There has been no program developed for handling video downloads from a camera card. Looking for an alternative computer, not a work...

    Get rid of the Rem brass to start. Use Federal brass. It is a little thicker in the neck. Plus it is not as hard. The cases are way more consistent in weight too. Next, get a RCBS neck expander die in 0.310" Next, as Larry said, get another...

    Nope, that doesn't work. I've been working on this for two months, and it can't be done, according to tech webpages.

    There can be a lot of difference even in the same mold number from year to year or whenever the mold cherry was replaced. It is generally not a large difference in loading data but may be in accuracy.

    There is a chert mine from the old Native American days near me. They used it both as a flint sparker and for arrowheads. Ours has a carmel color. The only brass I see at our county range is steel cased imports. I would bet the single case was to...

    This gun was brutal with normal #8 birdshot which are the lightest loads on the market. I reload Shotshells and my normal trap loads still smack me pretty hard in this gun. The forcing cone on this gun is about 1/2" long it is an abrupt step in...

    the more expensive pots can leak too. my magma pot has an intermittent drip starting after 30 years of use. I'm gonna drain it and clean it out for the first time ever, maybe do a little lap on the rod and seat.

    I imagine this is a reloading question as much as anything else. the way I look at it is by how much of the bullet is above/below the crimp groove. one 147 might/can have more or less length below the crimp groove and take up more or less of the...

    I already checked, the Chromebook 14 doesn't support this, with no time line for having one available. I'm leaning real strongly towards a Dell Inspiron 15 3000.

    that's more rifle brass than I find in a year. occasionally I get lucky and pick up 8-10 of these or 5-6 of those. 9mm and 40 is generally easy to get, it seems like nobody picks those up.

    Sharon Barrels did testing many years ago on over loads in their barrels. Heaviest charge was 1400 gr. powder, with 14 patched round balls over that. No failure. The only damage they were able to do on barrels was by separating the ball from the...

    They aren't hard to do, but are not a fail safe. I had one rifle with double cross bolts, that still split. A good idea with a heavy recoil rifle, though.
