    Are you shooting real shorts or those colibri shorts that are made for pistols? Sometimes the colibri's won't exit a rifle barrel.

    I haven't used that actual mold but I have 3 of his other molds and a 4th on the way. They are very high quality and easy to work with. It's amazing how many you can cast in a short time.

    I don't know about what the sleeve would cost but JES is charging me only 250.00 for a rebore and that includes return shipping. I'm going to call him tomorrow and see if he can do the sleeve as well as the reboring and what it will cost. I thought...

    On Wednesday I got a SWEEET deal on a Remington military rolling block in .43 Spanish. The rifle is in nice shootable condition but after my research here in the case forming section and other sites I think I'm going to try a different route. One of...

    I also used the Harbor Freight chop saw if you read HF's reviews on that saw 90% or better of them are guys making .300 blk brass. I was making cases for my Ruger american ranch and an AR that I built. My procedure was to size .223 / 5.56 brass in...

    I know this subject has probably been beaten to dust But... I just got a screaming deal on a military model Remington rolling block with a great bore and was thinking about putting it to work. What can .43 Spanish be made from that's not as...

    Unfortunately I don't have the time to do it myself but Lee Shaver does and for a reasonable price. Now I just have to decide weather I want it rebored to .38-40 or .44-40 so I can send the barreled action out to JES reboring. I'm leaning towards...

    Good to know, thanks fellas. Its measuring .3825". I'm thinking about getting Jared at Arsenal to cut one of his #379499 molds to .383" and then using a .384" lube sizer die so I can lube them as cast. But just to be sure I'm going to measure the...

    Thanks, that's good to know cause the other option is to find a trustworthy smith to convert the original block to center fire and I would think that's an expensive option.
