    Alot of rimfire BR shooters swear by it. Was go on a pick some up but they (LGS) no longer carry it. I picked up the Shooter's Choice but have only used it 4 times. It works. Directions say it works better on subsiquent cleanings as it...

    Don't rule out an old Savage Anschutz either. Look at the older 1400 series Anschutz too. As mentioned above some of the old Remington too. For optics, I pUT a used 6.5-20 x 40 LR I picked up at a fun show for 3 bills on my 40x after I sent...

    Yes, anytime a new star is installed, the nubs on the star have to be recut with a special tool. Quick and easy. One cut, stone off the burrs and check that the hand does 't bind. Re olver are not plug n play.

    The old Mossberg/H&R 5200 target rifles that were government contract. Stay away from the Kimbers unless you have a good supply of 10x. You missed the boat on the Government t Rem 40x a few years ago, mines a shooter with Blazer and CCI.

    Greg S replied to a thread Boxes for molds in Our Town
    Midway used to carry some blue hard plastic containers in four sizes and they quit carrying them. I've been recently eying the Dillon catalog at some. Take a look. I think they will also work for a Mihec 4 cavity mold. The bottom of the...

    If your mold was up to temp, I'd try alittle more heat on your melt before sweating it. I used to get big swings with my Lee 20 pounder before I built a couple of PIDs. Now, my melt stays +/- 5į of my target temp. Also try bumping up your...

    Bisley are bad. The fix is to send the frame out to a pro or take s stab at whittling them yourself. The real trick is not making them look ho-made.

    I’ve never understood why people love on the 10mm and loathe the 40 S&W. Both can be loaded up and down. The 20SF is a perfect fit to my hand.

    338 Fed was an ideal round for the right application. Agreed. I’ve got some unique loads loaded up with cast sitting in que for testing. Will report back when I’m able to do so.

    I love Unique in mine. Can shoot those all day. For heavy loads I’ve had great success with 8208 for really up there velocity, cleanliness and accuracy. Varget too but get leftover kernels.

    I believe case capacity, bore diameter and bullet weight. It is right in the 500 S&W neighborhood and I really don't think you are going to gain anything in a 16" barrel limited to 42-44k pressure.

    Since 2015, I seen numerous refrence to Beowulf Data and Quickload. Folks have played around with it and believe that there is something with the case design and Quickload that does not compute. It is a program, where as factory data (Alex Arms)...

    Good advise above, when it comes to killing, 12 ga #4 - 00 for 0-35/50 yds and an AR carbine with an Aimpoints red dot with a 30 mm (don't get a cheap one with a 20mm, to narrow FOV) obj for tracking moving targets to 200yds.

    BK7 hit the nail on the head!. Not all dies and chambers are created equally. Brand new 308 generally runs SAMMI -.003 to .004. I shoot it in my 308 and it grows to SAMMI + .004-.006. I neck size first time and it comes out after firing at...
