    Hello Sharps4590: Today Buffalo Arms uses the 50-110, the parent case to the 348 Win. The 50-110 is a bit longer so you can get the correct length. According to my mentor, the Mauser "A" base was a by product of manufacturing early cases. My...

    We have two of the Taurus PT22 copies. 100% with CCI mini mags with eyeball accuracy at 20ft. I still want a Beretta Jetfire .25 just because. A friend has a .22 short Minx that is amazingly accurate. Funny thing I had to file down the front...

    I 've had the tight pocket S&B brass problem before. Beyond that, I have used: Alcan,RWS, S&B, Fiocchi, Wolf, Tula, CCI, Federal, Winchester/Western, and Rem/Peters over the years and I can't remember a problem I could blame on the primer. YMMV. ...

    I have and use ARs but when game is afoot I grab a lightweight powerful bolt or lever gun 9 of 10 times. AR 10s are great for holding a defensive position but carrying one hunting is work, not pleasure. I like MT Chambers take on this. Best,...

    Odd that it's mod/mod. Honing out a choke might change your pattern center if diy. Better to cut it down to your preferred length above 18" and have cyl/cyl on that Savage. My opinion only. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G930A using Tapatalk

    A piece of drill rod would probably work well. If you have a numbered drill set, you could use that as a gauge.

    Good on you Rev. Sounds like you're a great pal as well. Dad is 87 and still quite active and about once a month he throws a soup can off the back porch, ventilates it with his 2-1/2" M66, then reloads it and puts it back on top the china cabinet....

    Unless it has a large chamber I should be able to load ammo with 7.62x39 dies. I have loaded 7.63x39 and 7.62x54 before with just .32 H&R dies to neck size and seat bullets. Lots of ways to skin cats. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G930A using Tapatalk

    Because of case strenth limitations hot rodding a 45-70 in ANY action is ill advised. The original pressure loads will kill anything big enough to die. If you want more, go to .450 Marlin, then .458 Win, then .460 Wby, 50 BMG. Sent from my...
