    Are those bullets going to be big enough? Fit is king, get it right first and the rest falls into line quickly and easily. My Yugo SKS slugged at .312. Standard .312 185 gr gc bullets from a lee mold were too small and leaded like a !#!#^$%. ...

    I would agree that if planning on a longer barrel a steel breech would be IMO a good idea. And give the option for a Red Dot or scope down the road. Gunguy well there are springers and then there are springers. I have a Hatsan 135 QE Vortex...

    GhostHawk replied to a thread The lost in Our Chapel
    I feel for them. So many are empty inside. They watched their grandparents and their parents chase earthly pleasures. Houses, cars, toys. But there is no lasting satisfaction with those. Heck people get married and never really commit to making...

    Hunter I am going to be honest here. I want #2. I just am not in a position to be able to afford it this month. Next month will be the first month that they will be taking Medicare out of my Social Security payment. I am not sure how bad...

    Good read sir, thank you. I knew there was a reason I liked those Rio's.

    Well if I could not resupply the first thing that happens is the Semi auto's get hung up. The Yugo SKS gets the gas turned off, turning into a straight pull bolt. Which makes it much easier to find brass. Semi's would be held for home defense use...

    GhostHawk replied to a thread Hulls in Casting for Shotguns
    I cheated, I found a sale for Rio primed hulls at BPI for 7 to 9 cents each in 100 count bags. I stacked. Then I found wads that would work for 1 oz shot loads, buckshot, and slugs, and I stacked again. And I have an 8 lb jug of promo that is just...

    JB I think you and I are probably pretty close on this subject. My rule for sleeping well at night is 300 rounds of loaded ammo, in MTM boxes, on the table for each caliber. Now there are a few exceptions. I do not have 300 rounds loaded for...

    I had a tuff row to hoe from the start. But I learned at an early age that many have it so much harder than I ever did. What matters is not our handicaps, disability's or problems. What matters is what we do in spite of them. And our attitude....

    Lee flaring tool helps. Even a small flare on the very tip of the case neck gives you a slightly larger ring to help get the bullet started. Next I never take the press up until the bullet is sitting straight. Do whatever you have to do but...

    I have 3 25 lb boxes of Range brass, in 9mm, .40sw and .45acp. The .45acp cost a bit more. The other two were 50$ for the box. I have yet to have a problem. But, I do go over my brass pretty carefully. I like to deprime with a Frankford...

    The striker on a CO2 air gun is in magazine well, not on the hammer. I have had them apart to replace hammers, the hammer is only there for cosmetics, and is most likely pot metal, that is why they wear out where the sear mates with them. Usually...

    Or just start with a CZ, and carry cocked, and locked, or just carry cocked. New CZ's have a FP block, and just like a Glock cannot go boom unless the trigger is pulled. My wife has a Witness which she carries condition 1, but it is perfectly...

    Agree that the longer barrel is probably the easiest place to start. One thing to watch. When you pull the original barrel take careful note of which way the transfer port is. One side has a bigger hole than the other as I remember. As for...

    Jimb I believe that in most circumstances the primer WILL move in the pocket. Take an empty brass of any caliber, prime it, put it in a gun and shoot it. Primer will be set out some from where it was. It is just that with full power rounds...
