    OOOO!, I got envy from seeing all of that lead too.

    Well it is certainly possible that metal fatigue could have caused it. But 50,000 rounds would likely have the headspace get larger as the bolt lugs wear down too. The rifling is getting pretty worn down too. Is it possible to shoot a high powered...

    Yes, I can concur. A more stiff spring should reduce the pounding on the frame and buffer.

    Well I cannot complain about the Lee Bullet Melting Pots. I have used them for many years with good results. I have a couple of them, one is a basic model that I got more than 30 years ago, and the one in the pic is only a couple of years old....

    Earlwb replied to a thread 6.5 Creedmore - NOT in Factory Rifles
    The 6mm Creedmoor seems to be replacing the 6.5 CM currently. Then the new darling is of course the .224 Valyrie cartridge. They are shooting amazingly long, extra high BC, 87 to 90 grain bullets out of the .224 Valkyrie rifles. That gives it some...

    Nice. It looks like it would still be a great shooter too.

    Nice video. I like it. But when I used to do police work, we had to fire 50 rounds, double action only to qualify. One stage even had you fire 18 rounds in a set time limit at multiple targets that rotated in and out after so many seconds. Thus a...

    I am not enthused by it. I would rather want a .30 Rem AR instead, which gives you .308 Win performance in a AR-15 size rifle.

    If you could only have one then it would be a .308 Win or a .30-06. Those are the most versatile calibers that there are out there. But if you are in Europe, it would be the most common caliber that is used there. The multi-caliber drillings used...

    Earlwb replied to a thread 6.5 Creedmore - NOT in Factory Rifles
    I think they already have done that. The 6mm Creedmoor is a new long range darling of the target shooting bunch. Then suddenly the .224 Valkyrie hit the scene and is becoming hugely popular due to it using amazingly heavy and long bullets with a...

    Earlwb replied to a thread 6.5 Creedmore - NOT in Factory Rifles
    I would think that if one really wanted to go this route then the 6.5mm-50bmg wildcat is the way to go. They make chamber reamers for it and reloading dies. Just think about a 160 grain spitzer boat tail bullet going 5,000 fps or more down range....

    Well one can't go wrong with the 6.5 Creedmoor. It would make for a nice all around cartridge to use. Yes the .308 Winchester is good, but the 6.5 Creedmoor is more modern. One thought is that maybe the 6mm Creedmoor would be really good too. Both...

    Earlwb replied to a thread Cheap India guns in Muzzleloading.
    Well, if the India guns come without the flash hole drilled, then these guns are for decoration only, not to be fired. They can't proof them like that of course. Any excuse or story they come up with as to why is just lying about it.

    The gun of the future will likely be something like a rail gun that fires needle like projectiles at hyper-velocities. Then the soldier can carry 10,000 or more rounds to use too. Currently logistics, training and the cost of trying to changeover...

    I would go with a 6.5mm Creedmoor too. But maybe the 6mm Creedmoor would be even better though.

    If it is like pig hunting at night, you could try using a red or amber (yellow) flashlight to illuminate them with. The pigs seem to ignore the red or yellow light. I really like using my ATN day/night digital scope for pig hunting. I think I would...

About Earlwb
Biography:
I started hunting and using guns when I was about 10yoa. I have been doing it ever since, sometimes with a hiatus for a while though. I first got into reloading when I was 16yoa with a 7.65 Argentine Mauser and a 12 ga shotgun. I really enjoyed that too. I do have quite a few bullet molds that I have acquired over the years and I cast many bullets myself to be used.
