    Originally it was a fun winter project to use up a few cheap 357 barrel blanks I had and was meant for an ar15. This was several years before MI started allowing straight walled pistol cases in their limited zone. For the AR15 the 1.6" case works...

    I've always given my hawkens a tap on the lock side with my boot after dumping the powder in similar to what others are doing. Also the best caps I've found are the German made Dynamit Nobel/RWS caps that sound like a 22lr and not like you shot a...

    Forster, They'll even make custom ones if you want. I trim and ream the starline cases in one step. Think this pic shows a reamer pilot for a 44, but it's the same setup.

    Haven't updated the thread in a while. My son and I both filled out doe tags with a 357AR this year. He still hunts with the one we built and I occasionally hunt with the 18" that I built in 2012. His is the tan one, mine is the longer one, and...

    I was excited when Starline came out with reasonably priced 223 Basic brass last year, and when MDWS picked up making barrels when I stopped (think they're on their 4th-5th round of them now) there's also a couple other smaller players making...

    Neat, haven't tried powder coating bullets yet but those seem like they'd feed very well. In a Bulgarian 10rnd mag or thermoold magazine (last resort) the 208gr RCBS/Lee 200gr fit, and will fit in a Pmag if you remove that nub which is a follower...

    It threads into the powder through die and is smaller than 7/8". Haven't had coffee yet but it's something like 5/8". Can you get a foot of all thread delivered off eBay or someplace else online. I bought 3 feet of it a few months back for around...

    BD, who made your 250gr bullet mold? It looks like it would feed well out of an AR.

    High hits and fat deer have given me the least blood trails. They generally also go a little further. My son is also red/green "color deficient". Against snow he can see blood, but not so much on leaves/grass ect unless it is much lighter in...

    Moleman- replied to a thread Hunting question in Muzzleloading.
    Always just put the cap or primer and put a piece of neoprene from a 1/8" sheet over the nipple (my buddy uses leather) to seal it a little better than just the hammer down on the nipple. Never an issue. If I put one away loaded I put tape over the...

    I've turned down AR15 barrels and also fluted them. Usually one or the other but did both to one about 12 years ago or so for a lighter coyote barrel. Wasn't fantastically accurate before but would usually hover just under to about an inch. Shot...

    I have a Trinity Force Atlas mid length on my AR10 and it has been rock solid for the past 2-3 years which was about $75 when purchased. I have one of their low profile .875" aluminum gas blocks and it works fine. Just bought two Trinity Force...

    I wanted one when they were making them but never got one before they were discontinued. A couple years back I had a chance to get one at a good price and jumped on it. Shoots good, is easy to maintain, and I regret not getting one before.

    The grip angle and consequently the magazine angle on the Ruger MKII is more than many other 22's. How does the grip angles of the Bobcat and 950 compare to the MkII? I wonder if a 22/45 would match the angles of the 25ACP magazines better.

    Used it in 223, 308, 30-06 and 303 for mainly low cost plinking rounds. Still have two and a half milk jugs of it out of 8.

    Been using the same 6" buck knife and smith ceramic V block since the 80's. Butcher the deer, clean and make a few passes on the V block, oil and back in the sheath until needed again. The blade stays sharp for many deer, just butchered two...

    It would be interesting to know what two sizes and type of needle bearings they used to use for their decapping stems.

    The old style Lee pins that are needle bearings are extremely tough but will eventually fail if you use them enough. The new ones are just turned from the mild steel they make the stem from and the pin is case hardened slightly. The pin next to...

    Before the internet when I broke my first Lee "unbreakable" decapping pin I fixed it with a standard decapping pin and loctite. Try heating the broken end up to see if the heat will make the broken off pin section pop out (does about 1/2 the time)...

    Set your tumbler up and have a spot lamp with a 100w bulb pointed at it a foot away or whatever it takes to not let the tumbler get hot. Should keep it above freezing

    I have a Savage ml2 muzzleloader and like it. You do have to be more careful with it then a standard muzzleloader you not going to get away with throwing in an extra 20 grains of powder or being lax. There have been blowups that usually are tracked...

    Try putting a #60 o-ring around the extractor spring if the extractor is otherwise fine. They're cheap and you can get them at just about any hardware store in the plumbing section. If that fixes it get a new extractor spring if you want.
