    I'd forgotten about this thread. The 223 Worked out so well I bought another compact in 308Win. I was cashed up a year or two ago and bought a VX6 1-6X24 and was going to fit it to my 7600Remington, but changed my mind. It will go on the RAC 308....

    303Guy replied to a thread Marlin in 35 Rem in Leverguns
    I've mentioned in the past that my father hunted Cape Buffalo with a 35 Remington. The rifle was a pump action which liked because it was short and handy in the dense African bush. He went for heart shots though but once his shot missed all bone,...

    303Guy replied to a thread Why lever guns in Leverguns
    Welcome aboard, Yrmff!! The 30/30 Winchester is a very efficient cartridge and seems to be perfect for cast boolits. It takes a near full case of several slower powders and burns them at rather low pressures, ideal for cast. Ideal for lever...

    I don't understand Ruger's attitude. Maybe that's why their hornet model had such a bad reputation. Trouble is, that same reputation must surely have hurt their overall sales? I wouldn't touch a Ruger because of it. The CZ on the other hand has...

    Okay, time to reminiscence a bit.........waaayyyyy back in the very early sixties, surplus carbines were being offered for the princely sum of $25.00 plus $2.00 shipping. My two cousins each received a carbine from their dad (my uncle) along with...

    I agree, and it's remarkable how many DON'T have that feature. I mean, come on...........the gun is designed to be carried with a loaded chamber and safety on. With the thumb break UNDER the hammer you have almost foolproof retention until it's time...

    First of all, I began reloading clear back in 1972 or so, with a .38 special Lee loader. Since that time, I've advanced "a bit" to RCBS equipment, interspersed with Hollywood, Pacific, etc. etc. In other words, I pretty much know what I'm doing. ...

    The subject may be more controversial than the .45 vs 9mm argument. When baking biscuits, what to you cook them on? Cast iron, sheet pan, sheet pan with sil pad, something else?

    In truth, 38 Special/357 Magnum brass differs markedly in case diameter (.379") from the 38 S&W (.386"). 9mm Makarov tungsten carbide sizing dies do good work on 38 S&W brass if the need arises. 38 S&W bullet/throat diameters vary as well. My...

    The idea is to prevent the sprue plate screw from loosening as it's moved to the left........unfortunately, mine didn't stick to the game plan, so I had to drill/tap for a 6-32 set screw in the block. NOW that left hand screw doesn't move.
