    We have ducks as mainly pets and get 3-5 eggs a day. We just do the water test on them when finding eggs they've hidden. Otherwise they're less than a day old.

    There are some good .357"/.358" bottle neck wildcats for the ar15. Some areas do not allow bottle neck cases such as the Limited Firearms zone in southern Michigan where I live. For me, a 357AR or 357Maximum-rimless makes sense. They are more...

    Have you tried taking the extractor out and cleaning it and the slide? They can get a buildup of crud under the section from the pivot hole to where they stick out of the breech face that actually keeps them from grabbing the case as much as they...

    If it's a straight wall there is a good chance that a standard die will work depending on the length and taper if any in the case.

    Cerrosafe *depending on the type* initially shrinks to easily be driven out, then grows back to size. If he didn't wait for it to grow back to size then yes that could be it but being a gunsmith he should know that. Measured a well used 29-3 and a...

    Is there a .001" constriction near the barrel threads?

    Not as hard as you think. For the past two seasons I've hunted with an AR10 in 44x1.8". The only reason it has a 1.8" and not 308 length is because in my DNR zone we're limited to straight walled cases no longer than 1.8". Running the pressure...

    Moleman- replied to a thread Hulu in Our Town
    We have hulu and netflix. Our basic cable kept going up and up every year. About the only thing I don't like about them is if a new episode comes out today, we likely don't get it until tomorrow. We mainly use hulu for tv shows and netflix for...

    I have an old Herter's 9 ton press. It's strictly, in my opinion, a handgun bullet press. I've made quite a few dies for it for pistol/revolver bullets. The first out of it's league die I made was for a 45-70 bullet. Well the 20 gauge slug surely...

    Wally on changing your powder charges I can tell you this. First I use Unique. You'll find the nodes of accuracy changing with the charge weight. Say you are in the bad area of a node and the charge is rather light. As you go up in small increments...

    popper I've never been a big fan of the LEE sizers. If I did a push through I usually made them myself with a good taper and lots of polishing. I can tell you with the luber/sizers that the RCBS sizing die with it's annular lube groove inside will...

    I have a little winter project going, I'm swaging 20 ga Foster style slugs without the rifling fins. I made a die for my swage press to form the slugs. They are about 7/8 oz. I use a LEE .600 round ball mould to make my swage cores. I have some...

    All the good gunsmiths I know operate and test fire the rifles they built to insure everything is corrects. Sounds like this smith didn't do that. Too you don't have the original safty on it. You could cock the action, put that original safty...

    Today Bullseye is often an over looked powder. Shame as it's a very good one. It goes a long way too as you don't use much of it.

    44 mag is the reason I started reloading. Wasn't comfortable using a powder that would allow a double charge so I started out with bluedot, 2400 and H110/W296 in it.

    PTG has them here's the link to their page. That's action only and they say timed action. Maybe give them a call and question them.
