    Fore-end hanger should not touch barrel. Common technique to "free float" barrel on No.1 is to drive a wedge between the hanger and barrel to bend it away slightly from the barrel and to pull the wedge out. Adjust bend until you can slide a...

    Agree that the Mods could lock and archive this thread. There are other threads addressing loading of the various .32 cartridges for field and recreational use, and perhaps those could be merged. I would like to see a new sticky combining all of...

    The tubes that I got with mine were plastic. I was later told they are filler tubes. I still think they are the originals. Why would you fill a tube, and use it to fill a second tube. That makes no sense. By the way, you STOLE that press. Sent...

    You are correct. Initial work was done in .32 S&W Long brass making essentially a +P load, but Mike Bussard at Federal Cartridge, and Jay Jarvis at Ruger both convinced Ted Rowe at H&R that it would be best to lengthen the case slightly to prevent...

    If properly stored, USGI Ball M1, Ball M2 and APM2 ammunition of WW2 manufacture should still be 100% reliable. I am still using FA and LC ammunition made in the 1940s, which has produced normal pressure, velocity and accuracy, functioning reliably...

    Around here even the WW2-era corrosive ammo brings $1 per round. More than that if packed in the 8-round M1 Garand enbloc clips and bandoliers. If clipped pack figure $1 per round plus $2 per clip. WW2 dates are more collectible and if in clean...

    Good info from the posters above. I have owned both the S&W and Colt M1917s. The shallow rifling isn't usually an issue with correct bullets which "fit" IF the bore is in good condition. The biggest factor influencing accuracy of these guns is...

    I checked checked my references and you are indeed correct and I appreciate the correction. It can be dangerous to rely upon memory once you get past age 70. Thank you! But for the purpose of answering the OP, his 18" twist is more than ample.

    Outpost75 replied to a thread 38 Loads in Cast Boolits
    Back in the day (1960s-70s) many eastern police departments had "full charge" wadcutters factory loaded for practice ammunition. The purpose for doing so was to approximate the recoil of the old 158-grain lean roundnosed ammo which was carried back...

    My R-P .30-30 brass is 0.010"-0.011" which is normal in my experience for the caliber. I think somebody must have neck-turned some of yours and got a little "happy" with it. Did you use a tubing micrometer or ball mic to measure the necks or...

    Never hit a hammer with another hammer or some hardened metal. They can shatter! I carry a piece of an easyout in my arm. Was tapping the easy out in a drilled broken off bolt in an engine block when the hammer head broke into pieces.

    Swagerman shortened the ram. He also lengthened the toggle. The shorted ram allowed him to get the lever into a position in which the leverage was much higher, than at the bottom of the stroke. Sent from my VS880 using Tapatalk

    Outpost75 replied to a thread S&w in Cast Boolits
    Casting a lead lap in the barrel gives you better control of the process. My experience has been that fire lapping tends to cause forcing cone erosion more than lapping the tops of the lands where you want to remove the constriction. When I...

    Outpost75 replied to a thread S&w in Cast Boolits
    You need to have a gunsmith inspect your barrel with gage pins for "thread choke." This is a constriction of the barrel shank at the root of the thread, caused by over-torquing the barrel when assembled into the frame. Very common with S&Ws. It...
