    Finally got around to playing with my MP 41 Mag 265gr WFNGC HP and when putting the check on and running through the lubrasizer, the nose compacts down. Anyone have an issue with this? Alloy is #2. I’m using some GC I have for my Accurate mold and...

    The problem with drought then heavy rain is flooding. You can get several inches over a week that soaks in vs several inches over a day and it just floods and then the ground is still dry.

    SRL, definitely understand the criticism. It’s one of those things you just don’t understand, like why is there Braille at a drive up ATM and why did they have such poor fitting of the tang and have such large gaps? Not to mention the screw heads!

    This stock was done by Macon Gun Stocks. My father and I picked out the wood, the checkering pattern and the style. It was the most I’ve ever spent on a stock and wish I went with a fancier wood but this one is mine and we did it before he passed....

    I was sad to hear SRL had such issues previously. We had exchanged a few PM about it and I have to say, I can’t blame him. I’ve had good luck with that company and I believe my late father was one of the members who suggested them. I’ll post up some...

    As stated above, the mag is probably over sprung and can clip 3-4 coils off it easily, a coil at a time to insure reliable feeding of the last couple of rounds. I found the same problem with a Lee FCD and threw it away. If a crimp die does work...

    I would nix the BB guns for two reasons, not as accurate due to nonrifled barrels and higher probability of a ricochet. For a general backstop, the carpet and old style carpet pad (non-foam) with a plywood backer will work for 10m type Air Rifles...

    Be careful which molds you go for. All my Browning have zero throats and will need to get reamed before chambering just about anything over 325 gr especially with a WFN profile. You’ll love it though. I love mine.

    Closing the burner vents caused a backdraft when you opened the lid. Do a YouTube search for backdraft and you’ll see plenty of demonstrations. Glad you’re ok. Chops sound sooo good right now.
