    In the past 20yrs since I got busted up and can't do upgrades and simple maintenance on my house. I've been screwed one way or another by every one I've ever hired to work on my home. The Last folks were from the GOVERNMENT. The "free" solar...

    I got a new in the box, LYMAN Small block single cavity mold cut for the #358446, from fleabay. It was still in the plastic, with the old shirt board grey striped box, wrapped in the old brown wax paper. I gotta wait until next Friday until I...

    Walks replied to a thread Sizing die compression in Cast Boolits
    I cast the #358495 out of COWW or 20/1 for about 10yrs, until I realized I COULDN'T cast better then I could buy swaged HBWC's. Lubed only the bottom 2 grooves, sized .358, never noticed the lube grooves being "squashed". My DAD used to cast the...

    If it's tapped for a receiver sight, you should be able to mount a small red dot, like a Bushnell TRS-80 to a rear mount. Worked like a charm with SMLE a while back. They're very accurate and no having to D&T more holes in the barrel,,,,,

    The way folks treat their brass since the coming of Progressive Reloading presses has drastically altered reloading. I can't even use the term HandLoading. Ammo is shot up as fast possible, and loaded just as fast. In the three most common...

    Could it be for that .45COLT ammo that was loaded for the COLT 1909. I seem to remember reading something about the rims being made wider because the standard cartridge rims would slip off the extractor, jamming up the revolver.

    I keep all my brass separate. When I pick it up at the range it goes right back in it's own box. I've picked up so much brass from .32ACP to .50AE since I was 3 or 4yrs old, that I can tell what a cartridge is by blind feel. I've still got some...

    I used to load a HORNADY HBWC. Gave me pretty decent accuracy at 50ft. Never tried a cast bullet. Didn't have anything that would drop at .360 or larger.

    Shot thousands of rounds of 7TCU and 30 WCF through 10" barrels. The only thing I didn't like about the 10's was I couldn't shoot them "dead frog" like I could the 14'ers.

    I use a lot of WC870 in anything .308 or larger and find it very accurate. Have read many times that magnum primers will help. Duplexing a couple of grains of fast flake powder down next to the primer will help cure unburned kernels if you want to...

    I got a Taurus model 94 in the early 90's. It was part of a trade. A 9shot version of a S&W 63. It had the roughest chambers of any gun I've owned or even fired. I did everything I could to clean & polish the chambers. To no avail, turned it over to...
