    Per an email reply from Browning the B92 were .357 and 44 Mag. only. I have seen one rebore and one rebarrel in 45 Colt.

    Follow up on the large diameter front and hollow base smaller diameter rear (as with a 22RF)... This is a Lyman #450229 with the hole for the hollow base plug at .445" diameter. A base plug as drawn would allow the tail to slip into the...

    M-Tecs replied to a thread the 17 in Rimfire Area
    It's been done as early as the 60's but the real issue is fouling problems with the larger cases. The 17 Remington is a prime example. The smaller case 17 Hornet and 17 Fireball don't seem share this issue. It also depends on intended usage. Fox...

    Between the virus and the social unrest the manufacturers can't keep up. Most distributors are out of anything remotely reassembling a self defense firearm. Since February over 2 million new first time purchasers.

    The 17 HMR was first than the 17 Mach 2 than the 17 WSM. I have the 17 Mach 2 and the 17 HMR. I shoot the 17 HMR the most. I am heading out of state tomorrow to shoot prairie dogs. The 17 HMR is awesome for under 175 yards on PD's on a claim...

    As I stated I have limited knowledge of RB's. Not sure how the longer bullets chamber in a 45-90. They do make them. https://sr-gunworks.com/remington-rolling-block-in-45-90/ ...

    As stated by some the RB does have AOL issues with longer cartridges. This is strictly from memory and I am not a RB guy but I believe 45-90 is about the limits without having to modify the hammer nose. ...

    Back in the mid 70's when I was doing 357 Herrett all I had was a Lyman Universal Trimmer. With normal pressure it took a month of Sundays to cut them to length. I discovered if you really jammed the cutters in each tooth would cut a nice curl and...

    Primers normally don't denotate with a slow compression. I have tested this several times by squeezing them flat in a machine vise. My guess is the crimp held the primer until enough pressure was applied and it popped in with sufficient force and...

Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.” -Samuel Adams
