    Nice, I'm sure you'll like it. I'm in a "Limited Firearms Zone" which translates to straight wall cartridge under 1.8" long and larger than .35" or shotgun, muzzleloader, archery only. I can get 450BM ammo at the grocery store.

    I started out with a smoothbore rifle sighted 1100, eventually upgraded to a rifled hastings barrel using the same saddle mount. Eventually I put a weaver base on the 1100 and ran the front two oversized scope base screws into the barrel extension....

    I do basically the same thing for the 44 version of the raptor (44x1.8") using .473" case head rifle brass. Generally I'll cut them off long as they'll shrink a little when expanded up. debur, anneal, run through a well lubed expander, resize, trim...

    Should be able to get under the 8# mark with an optic without too much effort. This 44x1.8" wildcat came in at 8#3 oz with the scope and magazine but without the suppressor. It has a fairly heavy barrel profile at .980" to the .875" gas block,...

    There is a copy of the 870 that is made in china since the design is no longer under patent protection, but the last 870 I bought last fall was made in the USA. The chinese copies are sold under different names and not by Remington, hawk 982 is one.

    I'd just measured the expander stems I'd made to fit in a Lee powder through die yesterday because someone on another site had asked what thread they were (5/8"-24TPI). I hate to go off of memory and still had the thread gauge and micrometer out. ...

    My best friend likes the 500 and I like the 870. His is old enough that it has a metal safety, but still has the plastic trigger housing. Another highschool buddy (a lefty) has had both and went from the 500 to 870's and has stuck with Benelli...

    The hydrid is available with a qd back plate that uses their muzzle brakes. I prefer to use it as it doesn't matter what the barrel thread diameter or pitch is if you want to swap it between guns. the downside is that you will need to put a $75...

    I tried this with a modified 223 case and couldn't get them to shoot very well. Just went back to the pellet gun or 12ga if they're too far away. Of course we don't have any houses by us though.

    They make lockouts so you can keep the engine running for the electronics (and AC) with the key removed. They kill the engine if you try to put them in gear. The chief may want to rethink the cost of putting them in.

    I've got a few uppers that I use with lee tumble lube bullets with alox and then dusted with mica which can really clog things up with lube. The bolt carrier group especially gets dirty when you put a few hundred cast loads through it. While you're...

    Any die set that will reload the 357Max will load these. I don't like having to modify die sets if I can help it. The best crimping die that I've found is the 38/357 Lyman taper crimp die as it is actually a gentle taper v/s a modified roll crimp...

    Read through this thread on a 45-70 using a round block. http://castboolits.gunloads.com/showthread.php?325040-My-Rifle-Action I got a block of 4140 prehardened to make one at some point hopefully after deer season.
