    vzerone replied to a thread Hollowpoint failure in Cast Boolits
    I think many have the wrong idea of how a cast hollow point should work from a pistol/revolver for the bigger game such as deer. You want that hollow point to open and mushroom only after it has initially entered the body right upon entering the...

    I got 6.6# of the Prima V from Graf and sons for the same as 3# of anything else at cabelas. Should be good for pistol plinking loads from what the reviews online are saying about it.

    Why would a five groove be any different? They drill the hole, ream it and hone it and that's your bore. So it would have the same bore as 4/6/etc groove barrels. Micro Groove is slightly different. All you need is a V block to use with you mic...

    I have to agree with you Lloyd. Razor Dobbs killed two cape buffaloes with a 5 inch barreled Sig 1911 in 10mm. He had through and through penetration on both of them and was using, I believe, Sledgehammer hard cast. I watched it on video and can...

    Huh, I was of the belief that the wind pushes the whole bullet to the direction it's blowing rather then turning the nose to that direction. If it turned the nose Wow could you imagine how far off target the bullet would be then? Think about it,...

    Waco you're getting there, but a few things concern me. Was your target backer board plumed vertically? I ask because a good number of your bullet holes look like they hit at an angle. It's either that or your bullets were yawing/not stabilized. ...

    Stop by the trap range and pick up a bunch of worn, off brand or basically junk 12 and 20 GA hulls. They'll give them to you and they last for many shots.

    For your missing threading dial, you can make one on your lathe with a little youtube google foo. This is a neat easy to make threading dial that can be easily made with off the shelf parts. Gear, small pillow block, shaft, and a bushing/collar. ...

    Someone could used 4140 prehardened that can still be cut with HSS tooling and would require no further heat treating. If it were me I'd want a square hole at a few degrees of an angle to the barrel hole broached and the barrel hole drilled. ...

    Moleman- replied to a thread 6x45 upper in Factory Rifles
    For some reason since 6x45 is a wildcat the PSI limit is similar to the 55K limit of the 223 Rem SAAMI. If you're compairing 223 62K psi limit loads to 55K psi limit loads for the 6x45 then yes some of the 223 loads can beat it. Apples to apples,...

    Ballistics in Scotland. 445SM is also in the list of possibilities but I'm leaning towards 357Max. I ended up with some of the short Hornady 444 cases and I've made a dummy round with a 1.8" case length (the max case length for use in the DNR zone...

    Take a really good look at both sides of the interior of the ejection port area especially on the ejection port side. If I was going to cut one down that is where I would remove metal. The ejection port side would be harder to weld as the opposite...

    Since I'm stubborn I was looking to build one of these actions only with a square locking block and a neidner style firing pin in 357Max or 444x1.8" for use in the limited firearms zone here in MI.

    I use alot of it in my 357AR (rimless 357Maximum at 223 pressures) , 44x1.6" and 44x1.8" rifles. This came up last fall so I got an endoscope and looked at the leade in those rifles that had been shot the most and have been keeping an eye on them...
