    Thanks for the responses, folks. RRR, the exact magazine is tight there in your links. About double the price of the rifle! But at least now I know what it looks like. I did once make a drawing of what would fit in the magazine well. Ok,...

    In about forty years of loading shotgun shells I’d never used a Federal 209A however a friend gave me a thousand earlier this week . So I plan on trying them .

    More specifically, for a 22. I have three 22's missing their magazines. One I have a sample magazine for. Even the ones I have five round magazines for need ten round mags. But let's start with a Voere magazine. I have no sample. This rifle...

    In the Knight Disc rifles I have and the Savage 10-ML had I used CCI209M primers with great results . At present I'm using a Remington 700 Ultimate ML and that one uses a brass case with a LR primer but I've still got the 45 and 50 Disc rifles I...

    So I gave it bit of a bore cleaning. The muzzle end didn't look right so I cleaned it some more and shone a light in. Rust! In the muzzle end. Just surface rust but rust just the same. Well, I've done my best to just level the rust so as not to...

    303Guy replied to a thread Idea for custom 22 in Special Projects
    Is there a reason for choosing a 25 degree shoulder? A sharper angle would prevent case elongation better but then you are specifying a low pressure loading. Anyway, I was going to suggest looking at the Taranah hornet but then I saw the case...

    NZ$146 is about US$98-99. On one hand it's a fair price for an old rifle while on the other, it's a bargain for a gem. If it shoots laser beams then it would be an absolute bargain, if it shoots mediocre then not so much. So we'll see. I'm going...

    I got it! Apparently I wanted it more than the other guy and set my autobid higher than his. Quite a bit higher actually so I got it at probably the right value @ NZ$146 - or was it worth more? Maybe, maybe not. I would have paid up NZ$200. ...

    Well, it's fifteen minutes to auction closing and I am leading the bid. Last minute bidders have been known to come in and extend the auction so it's not a done deal yet and I may lose. So we'll wait and see. I'm going to clean that 511 barrel...

    Thanks Texas. Being on pension now thanks to covid, I need to spend wisely but this rifle is screaming NZ$150 to $200. If I can get it (and I'll go as high as $200) I will build a rear peep for it. I suspect that someone else also wants it so...

    I have a 511 which I actually bought for my late son. I've only fired it once and that didn't go well. Perhaps the bore needs to be cleaned or something. These 500 series rifles have a wonderful balance to them. Anyway, I'll be bidding on this...

    That will sit well atop of it. I have a couple of Ruger American Compacts (223, 308) and was thinking of Timney Triggers. The cheapest I have found them at is $AU440!!!!!! I might be doing a DIY job on them!

    I must confess that I stopped using Varget simply because it is visually indistinguishable from H4350 which I use for my hunting load in my No4 two-groove. Very accurate 180gr load. I'm going back to using Varget because I know it works so well...

    I have a recovered paper patched boolit that still wears its paper jacket. The trick is to patch up to seat in an unsized neck. This should align the boolit with the throat and bore. Using the same load and patched boolits in another rifle, I got...

    If the bullet " fits " will have an awful lot to do with your chances for a smile. People who shoot sub-sized bullets blame their results on lube ( a lot of different kinds of lube ). The bullet must fit. Ben

    It's interesting how powders that won't burn fully at lower pressures in larger cases will burn just fine in smaller cases at even lower pressure. Just have a look at 30-30 load data. Using bulk fillers has the same effect but does raise pressure.

    Would you believe it even worked in my hornet? Admittedly, I did cheat a little. I duplexed it with H4227. Zero neck tension and 50gr bullet. It was accurate and pretty fast. How fast I don't know but it was flat shooting and worked well on...
