    Lacking a source of sheep tallow, use what we call "Confederate Army Lube", equal parts by melted volume of Goya Manteca (unsalted, filtered lard) and beeswax. I use it in cap& ball revolvets, as patch lube, for Minies and BP cartridge cowboy...

    vzerone replied to a thread 20 Nosler in Factory Rifles
    It's internet speculation that the 22 Nosler is similar to the 6.8 Remington and some even say that is the parent case with some changes. Nosler has never indicated the 6.8 is the parent case. While the 6.8 SPC is similarly shaped, the .22 Nosler...

    An inch is probably close enough for country music. Might want to shoot a group to establish POI, then make a ten click change and shoot another and let us all know. If memory serves the windage adjustment is a bit finer than the elevation.

    If you're going to hunt with it the 35-303 will have better performance on deer. All 35 calibers are good deer caliber. You should have a little more steam then a 35 Rememington and you know how well that performs. Myself i don't want any black...

    On a 6" barrel gun the clicks are supposed to be one inch at 50 yards. On a 4" gun they would be a bit larger.

    Bufdalo Bore does not follow SAAMI test procedures and I expect if they were tested in a barrel maintainex at industry standards, you would find either that their actual velocities were lower than advertised or the pressures were higher. In none of...

    That's what I said, but some people need to urinate on the electric fence for themselves, shoot their gun loose, and pay a gunsmith to fix what they might have learned, or not, from it.

    Buzz if you're shooting that weight and length of a bullet and not seating it past the base of the neck that you more then likely have a 5.56 chamber then a true 223 one. Many manufacturers have done this to avoid lawsuits. I know a couple of...

    Here's a 9mm conversion that you don't have to have a different lower with the special 9mm mag well, you just use your 5.56 lower and of course you'll need a 9mm complete upper. I personally feel the mag well adaptor is overpriced and near the...

    like mold maker use the graphite mold release agent. I just skim the pot as the strings build up then at the end I return it all back and flux the mess back into good alloy for the next time.

    any radioactivity they have seen will be shed in less than a month. they use lead because it is a shield/barrier not because it soaks up the x-rays or isotopes.

    they would do sometimes 6 different weights with the same mold number. it was generally the same cherry just cut deeper or shallower to give more/less drive bands.

    vzerone replied to a thread My M1A in CB Loads / Military Rifles
    That's good thinking Mac1911, no sense in pushing those two rifles. If you need a hotter 30 caliber go to a magnum bolt rifle. Shooting those old milsurps, and their copies, with the ammo they were intended too use (and cast too!) is just plain fun.

    he is considering a lighter one from NOE. IMO a 350 is about as light as I would go in the 45-70. it could cut recoil but still retain enough weight for penetration. if things were gonna get tough and you needed to punch through a big Moose from...

    The independent validation is appreciated. When I attempt this discussion I am usually ignored, and worse, but it is the truth. The same occurs in .38 Special cowboy loads as well with lighter bullets than about 125 grains.

    In the .45 Colt I have found that the charge/ velocity relationship of Titegroup in standard pressure loads tracks closely to Bullseye. The excessive free airspace in the case may cause excessive velocity variation due to changes in powder...

    All good advice. Be aware that Pyrodex is more corrosive than black powder and that prompt and thorough cleaning is necessary. You S&W is a nice gun with collector value, so you want to take care of it. The HBWC bullets will also work well with...

    Use the commercial flush. Inspect the inside of the cooling system with a fiber-optic probe if possible. If you don't get the results you want the flush could be repeated. If not immediately, then simply at a shorter interval. Be sure to pressure...

    The pressure isn't necessarily about wrecking the case, the higher pressure of the 308W is harder on the rifle as it wasn't designed for that kind of pressure. Talking about the gas system and gas port and I'm also talking about the M14. In their...
