    Recently produced .44 Magnum S&W revolvers have tight cylinder throats dimensioned to give best results with jacketed bullets. My 1986 production S&W Model 544 Texas Commemorative .44-40 has cylinder throats which are .4285" and the barrel groove...

    RP replied to a thread At the scrap yard. in Lead and Lead Alloys
    Another route you guys may want to check into is most scrap yards are not set up to sell to the public but will do a swap. I have made several trips to the yards with a load of scrap and load what I wanted before going back across the scale with...

    Well it looks like everyone thinks the steel plate would be a great plan I see if McMaster has it in stock. Country Gent I did not think of the weight on the threads but that is a good point if mine fail that will be the next style of threads I...

    For what you would pay to have the frame professionally milled, buy a rear sight, have it installed and have a new front sight of correct height installed to match and the gun reblued, you could buy a new revolver with adjustable sights. My...

    Your engraved #311299 looks great and 25 grains of 4198 should work well. The NEI plainbased bullet I have is no longer made but NOE makes a clone .311-155FN in either plainbased or gaschecked. Here are some pics of how they engrave in my '03...

    A loaded .30 HRRT (30 Herrett with a rebated rim for AR15 use) on the right with a 110gr spitzer bullet. The bullet on the left is a 30-223 Wildcat loaded with the same weight bullet for comparison. Both are loaded to fit a standard AR15 magazine.

    This is US Lend-Lease ammo which was shipped over in tanks produced for the Soviets, which were also equipped with Thompson SMGs and ammo. The Russians unpacked and later inspected and repacked the ammo, which is why you see mixed headstamps. Eau...

    Well I swapped out my chucks today and the pipe trick worked like a charm thanks for that tip. I took the day off and spent it in the shop turning out parts for my leveling jacks. One more piece to turn and then to drill the holes in the jacks so I...

    Lyman molds are notorious for being undersized in the forepart and oversized on the driving bands. Try poking the NOSE of each of your bullets into the muzzle and observe whether the forepart is large enough to be visibly marked by the rifling,...

    Looks like ordinary Brit pack MkVII Ball. Might even still go "bang~!" without hangfiring if you are lucky. Will be corrosive and Berdan primed, loaded with Cordite.

    Upstate NY is different from the Big Apple, but gun owners still have to put up with regs passed by Albany. Pretty country once you get away from the city, but state politics are dominated by the big population centers, which is a shame. ...

    The Beretta pistols of that era are well engineered, simple, well made and reliable. I have several M1934 and M1935s in 9mm Corto (.380 ACP) and 7.65mm Browning (.32 ACP) which are sturdy, reliable and accurate, having fewer parts than a Colt...
