    every now and then CZ forgets to sharpen their reamer, and they get some chatter right at the front of the chamber.

    those are not special loading techniques. it's just what equipment he had on hand. he was hand seating primers cause he is cheap and won't buy a table mounted priming tool. CCI primers? they were on sale. he hasn't even done a throat slug...

    I apologize to the members who are reading this thread in hopes of learning how to do the same thing. I was hoping someone would ask some why questions. they didn't so I will. why is a 6% antimonial alloy only getting to 18 BHN. why was...

    how are my comment waay off base? I gave him the starting load and the bullets and he was dead on target at well over the RPM fantasy wall with 1" like groups day one with indications of barrel whip causing his overly large group size. my only...

    I only ever had one that didn't show a marked improvement, a Marlin CB in 45-70. It shot a little better, but not a ton. It did reduce the leading by a bunch. I could shoot 2 full grains higher powder charge before leading started to creep in, so...

    Thanks for all the advice and warnings first off I know easy mistakes can be made when you let your mind drift. Right now I am just getting to know the machine so to speak what tools I have what is needed to do what and how to use them. I have made...

    You are very close, but rather than the stem, it's for the shank, which is the part the stem connects to.

    Sounds like the one I got tasked with making shoot. That one also had tremendous thread choke. Once that was lapped out and I found a mold that mostly filled the throats, accuracy improved greatly. Yes, adding some metal would sure be nice :)

    I don't care what anyone carries, I just think anyone who claims to be able to hit a tiny, likely moving target, when surprised and scared is either Ed McGivern reincarnated, or full of poo. There is a reason the big X on combat targets is in the...

    here is a list of the special techniques used. 1 bullets were cast. 2 they were loaded in a case. 3 they were shot. that's all the special that was used here. that's all I have done anyway, no M die, no collar nuthin, I don't even own a...

    Depending on the maker, the material might vary some, but it will almost certainly be steel (with the possible exception of some inserts made of carbide)

    I've not once seen accuracy decrease, but you may have to re work loads. I doubt VERY highly you did anyhing to harm your barrel.

    Yep, 1972 I believe. Just letting them know Ruger made sloppy pigs along with overly tight examples. Buyer beware :)

    I entered into a peeing contest with a member who insisted his .22s and .32s were at least the equal of a larger caliber gun because he could place multiple accurate shots from them. He even went so far as to claim he could make multiple eye socket...

    I have a case(1900) of Hornady 200 grain FMJs if that interests you. Would sell you a smaller quantity if you wanted.

    I can't speak specifically to your project, but when I'm doing similar things, I swage the body down to the point that I'm swaging the case webbing at least some as well, then when I'm turning the brass, I'm only really removing material from the...

    Normally I agree with you, but in this case it's an actual twist drill with a knurled end to be spun by fingers, rather than a pin vise designed to hold a twist drill and spun by hand :)

    I can assure you 50 fps. can and often does make a difference in whether a bullet/boolit will expand from a snub, and 100 fps. really makes a difference. If you are shooting a non expanding bullet/boolit, or don't care if it expands, velocity...

    I was wondering by your description if it was one of the older integral molds. You did it right, friction fit, but you'll probably find it casts and releases a little easier if you add a bit more draft to the pin where it's inside the cavity, not...
