    Rock River Arms AR 10 all altogether different then most others in that the receivers are a different length due to them using and FN LAR magazine. ArmaLite use to use a modified M14 magazine, but I think they since may have changed. Most others...

    Runfiverun's daughter was shooting around 2700 fps so that is in the jacketed range. I didn't spefically say 3000 or 3000+ Larry Gibson has shot over 3000 fps in a 30 caliber cartridge he helped design. I believe he was usually straight LinoType. ...

    I saw one at a gun show in 25-20 that had a neat peep sight and a front globe with the post fixed from the top- to see the target you're holding over to hit. Very cool and shouldacoudawouda got it!

    I have a high regard for round balls. The ball pictured took the buck on the wall with a head on neck shot. After breaking the spine, I found it in the chest- missing one gr of its original 225 gs. (.54) The javelina fell to a .50 rb- on the same...

    Make sure they bolt shroud is screwed all the way in. This is normally done with the safety in the up position at 12 o'clock. The 96 safety works left- fire, center- safe/takedown, and right- safe/locked bolt or uncocked and locked. Sent from my...

    Your bullets have to harden a little before sizing them. They are soft and very weak. The nose sides can swell from pressure put on the tip of the nose by the nose punch. That's mainly in luber/sizers, not so much in push through. I'm not talking...

    So there is no reason to cut the rim recess? That will simplify things quite a bit I think. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G930A using Tapatalk

    Do not size your bullets directly out of the mold after they cool. They are still weak. Wait about a day. If you aren't letting them age for two weeks you're wasting your time. You have a 5.56 NATO chamber on that AR (believe me) and you need to...

    Stock up on the .450 brass and enjoy. You can even use 45-70 dies to load it without crimping. Top loads with 405grs resemble .375 H&H recoil so hang on! Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G930A using Tapatalk

    Rim diameter on the 9x23 is .394. The rim on a 38 Super with the old style semi-rimmed case is .406. The rim on the 40 S&W is .424. The rim on the 10mm is .425.. The difference between the 10mm and the 9x23 rims is .031 so you divide that by 2 to...

    I built a .450 Marlin bolt action and I've owned many 45-70s. The .450 is a smart version of the .458x2 wildcat. The belt is thicker front to back to prevent an idiot from touching one off in his 7mm mag etc. It is a great round IME with cast and...

    I've been shooting for a lot of years and a lot of calibers. First let me say the U.S. major brands aren't the same brass cases they were way back. For that matter some of them don't even make their own brass. Okay I've never liked Remington...

    I don't have any 9x23 cases, but I'm sure you know that both the 9mm Luger and 9x23 have a fatter web area then a Super. the Super actually IS a straight case. When I made the 9x23 barrel for my Tokarev I used the 9x23 reamer and shoot only 38...

    Most the 38 Super brass you buy today is the rimless stuff. Starline calls it Comp. I've also bought a lot of once fired 38 Super cases and the mixed brands are Aguila, AA, Sig, Jag, Federal, S&B, and another one that has some A's in the stamp. None...

    You can move the rear base to the tapped hole near the bolt handle. One screw will hold it fine on a .22Hornet. Extension rings are available as well for today's short tube scopes. An old steel fixed power Weaver would be correct for that rifle in...

    Deputy Dog, I'm certain there's a warrant out for you because you STOLE that 788! The 123 yr old 30-30 cartridge continues to fascinate me but even more so out of an accurate bolt action. I love my Winchester 94 for short range hunting but...

    I'm sure you know you should use a 9mm/38super slide for them right? I've done all these years ago. Also you will have to change your 45acp ejector and the 9mm/38super also have a differenc slide stop. I've also done a 9x23 on Tokarev.

    GPC Numrich should have .357 extractors, if not possibly an old .22 Jet. Of course you can adapt a .22 Hornet or .223 extractor to fit.

    Look at that new 50 caliber muzzler loader that has been out for a short while now and it has a permanent suppressor and it's not a NFA firearm. The ATF could care less about that muzzler loader.
