    That can be removed by degreasing then applying bluing salts using fine steel wool. Be sure to remove the bluing salt residue and drying before oiling or it will start rusting! Oiled brass wool works too but doesn't restore the bluing but does...

    Yeah, normally I would have just snuck it in - she wouldn't notice there was another one but this time I had to go fetch it on the weekend. I didn't know what to do but in a stroke of genius, I told her she bought it for me for Valentine's day....

    That's interesting, Barra. I now need to choose a bullet. There are a few choices to make - 110gr 32 bullets, 308 125gr and 310 123gr. I have a long barreled lightweight gun that would suite mild loads for small game and a heavy gun that would...

    They say this 6.5WSM is a potential barrel burner, which is why I had the barrel Nitride processed, with this treatment it is possible to extend the life of a barrel many times over. In the 100 rounds or so I put down the tube before Nitride I...

    Got a chance to do some shooting this week with the newly nitrided barrel. Here is what I learned or reaffirmed.... 1. Nitride (QPQ, Black Nitride, Melonite, etc.) processing reduces friction in the barrel which reduces pressure. With...

    I'm glad this thread came up because I have had this idea of patching up a 125-ish bullet fo fit the throat of a 303 Brit. I have patched a small cast boolit that shot very well in one with an enlarged throat in spite of the jump. The patched...

    Try bracing the hacksaw upside down and then drag the WW along the blade. It should get the same results, but you only have to handle the WWs instead of both. I usually sort sitting on a low stool on the patio. I test the questionable WWs by...

    Some of the prices asked & received for OEM grip sets is mind-boggling. I use Pachmayr and Hogue neoprenes to a large degree, and I have likely thrown away or given away a small fortune--if pricing like this is typical. One set of grips that I...

    It's marginally slower than AS30N but a lot bulkier which makes powder position a non issue. More expensive too I think. I did once try a breach seated boolit. I had a case with a damaged neck or something so I cut it back to behind the...

    I have a Toz 22 (model 22) with a 14 twist. I've thought about trying the Aguila 60 gr rounds in it. I should get some so I have them to test in it when I do finally a chance to test the gun.
