    .003 is a mile when your squeezing lead. try core seating into a jacket with .003 clearance. you won't need the ejector. but you'll have nicks in the jacket from pulling it off the stem.

    Years ago had a cotton canvas band on my military-issue Benrus. In hot-wet field environment these would disintegrate in a week. Nylon replacements are more durable but will absorb sweat and funk and stink unless washed. Good selection of...

    less amounts of a faster powder. or more of a too slow powder. I'm assuming this is an AR so never mind the too little of a too fast powder, and focus on slowing the powder down. 4227 at 10 grs would be right about below the speed of sound.

    Nueces did not break any rule by posting his link but EBAY links are not allow you can refer to the header in the swapping and selling section where it is listed. Hope this clears things up.

    learn to shoot/control the moving gun. you start pulling the trigger before it gets to the point of impact you want. but you approach the dot from the same direction each time. in other words work with the shake by having the muscles contracting...

    Been there and done that. I've won a number of handguns in Tx but I have to have them shipped to my FFL in La. It is a federal law and is about as stupid as stupid gets. I can't purchase a 22 rim fire revolver out of state and walk out of the...

    it's doable in most places out here. most are draws to get tags and you have to be careful of some units. they like to sell 650 tags in areas that are totally weather dependent and have safe pathways through private property. you can squeeze in...
