    In Michigan a straight walled cartridge case has to be between 1.16" and 1.8" and a minimum of .350" for the limited zone. There is no COL limitation. I'm working on a barrel for a 336 Marlin right now that will primarily be used as a 357Max but...

    Go 357 Maximum and load it to 223/556 pressures. That puts it in factory load range of the 35Rem. Michigan limited zone legal.

    Moleman- replied to a thread lawn rolling in Our Town
    We have lots of moles in our area that like to come investigate our yard. Spraying for grubs helps make our yard less attractive, but we still get some coming into the yard every year since we're surrounded by woods or field on 3 sides. After they...

    My 1891 Mauser wrench is 3/4" thick, 1" would of been better but 3/4" was all I had at the time and it works fine. Ideally with any gun you want the clamping force of the wrench to be directly over the threads or you run the risk of twisting the...

    Yup, I agree. It's not going to blow your gun up or anything. If anything it just won't be a good load. Like Tatume said just try it.

    Hey Ricochet back before the EPA days when you could take your engine block and heads to the shop and have them acid tank. It sure cleaned them down to bare cast iron and didn't hurt anything that I know of. I just wonder if that would have cleaned...

    I too have a Husky 9.3x57 and my throat just barely takes a large enough bullet using the thin neck 8x57 brass to be large enough over groove size to work very well indeed. It's an amazingly accurate rifle. Mine is all original too and very good...

    Outside neck turning provides a more consistent neck wall thickness then reaming on a lathe. The only reamer setups that I saw that do as good job are the ones where there is a special reaming die that lets the reamer cut a new path rather then...

    One can free check a plain base and free checks work exceptionally well. You free check while sizing. This of course require a luber/sizer such as the Lyman or RCBS. Free checking will suffice on rifle bullet well into the low 2000 fps.
