    That is a bit "large." Enough so that I would be cautious firing jacketed bullets for fear of sticking one in the barrel. Lubricated lead bullets should be OK, but you can expect significant velocity loss, about 10 fps for each 0.001" larger gap...

    You're right Randy, those Springfields are hard! I dont three Remington one time and it was a breeze. I was also surprised to find the rear receiver ring and a 7.7 Jap Arasaka very easy too. Good thing I didn't have to do any holes/threads on the...

    I've only seen one, the demon of depression. I had to battle with him once. A long story but a true one. I won't go into detail. This one is very dangerous. He has killed more through his yrs here than most wars did. He looks like a giant Buda,...

    Yeah American factory loads are loaded low, although there may be some newer stuff out there that is hotter. You'll be okay with starter load and mid loads for sure. You know too those old 7x57 have generous bores and grooves.

    I often wondered why the Mosin's bolt was stubby and short. I answer I got, being Russia has some severe winters the bolt can get frozen shut. They made it short and stout so you could pound on it to get is open. Makes sense.

    Brian, you could just about use all those powders you listed. What velocity you wanting to shoot? You know that rifle will shoot factory loads. We're not talking about trying to make a 7mm Mag out of it. You can load it up some. Get in your manual...

    I think there were four different models. I found pictures of two. What does yours look like? I think one of the other two is made like the newer Hornady one. It has a sliding charge bar. I think these two use rotors similar to an RCBS Lil' Dandy. ...

    The cylinder length of most post-WW2 revolvers should accept .38 Specials loaded to 1.59" OAL. I load .38 Specials long in my Rugers to increase powder capacity and to provide the same OAL as .357s to feed in my lever-action rifles. A factor might...

    They don't use slow powders in reduce loads because they need to be a more full load so the powder burns more efficienty. Take for example you can't reduce recommended loads of WW 296 by much at all. I know that's a pistol powder, but one you don't...

    it could be the powder too. titegroup will break down powder coating and many plastics. you don't want to leave the stuff in your powder hopper for too long.

    the more expensive pots can leak too. my magma pot has an intermittent drip starting after 30 years of use. I'm gonna drain it and clean it out for the first time ever, maybe do a little lap on the rod and seat.

    I imagine this is a reloading question as much as anything else. the way I look at it is by how much of the bullet is above/below the crimp groove. one 147 might/can have more or less length below the crimp groove and take up more or less of the...

    that's more rifle brass than I find in a year. occasionally I get lucky and pick up 8-10 of these or 5-6 of those. 9mm and 40 is generally easy to get, it seems like nobody picks those up.

    Just as Larry said with the 12 twist those velocities he mentioned are easily obtainable. You didn't mention this bullet, but it fits the 300 Savage like it was made for it and that's Mihec 30 Sihouette. Being the single lube groove in near the...

    The switch barrels you have for your Savage, are any of them magnums? I ask because if you have magnum barrels that means you already have the magnum bolt head. If you do have them how do they feed? Again if you do have them try some dummy .375 H&H...

    I see them being made at the bigger trap shoots all the time. they basically make a silicone plug molded right into your ear with the ear buds inside them. something like 20-25 bucks is the price.
