    Mary, if you remove the recoil start cover, can you spin the flywheel with a cordless drill on the flywheel nut?

    We had that last week, Generator broke the second night about 2am. Was able to rent one that day and of course the power came back on that night since we were covered. The breaker was good, AVR (fancy voltage regulator) was good, brushes were...

    What tools do you have access to? You could likely use some premade "solvant trap storage cups" or whatever they're calling the baffles with no holes in them but they're not cheap when you add them all up. I've got two form one stamps waiting for...

    Every 6 months or so I'll send an email to Hornady asking about the 180gr SSP. Always get a canned response back but figure it doesn't cost anything and it can't hurt. Last one I sent mentioned the 350Legend shooters would be looking for a bullet...

    That's what I do. You can save it and add it to the list, but it disappeared on the last update and I haven't added it back in. From there I'll take the (magnetospeed) chronograph speed and adjust the water capacity to match the velocity. Figure...

    Moleman- replied to a thread Someday projects in Our Town
    Always have several that need attention and keep an eye out for others. I don't mind putting some shop/garage/man cave time and a reasonably priced barrel blank into a project. Lately though it seems that most of the project guns are being sold...

    All my 6x45 cases are nickle plated. Any 223 nickle plated cases get run through the 6x45 die so I can tell at a glance if it's a 223 or 6x45.

    With their excellent split rings that will lock in a die I don't see the need to go to the LNL system. At some point I will upgrade my projector press and if I have to get one with the bushings I'm liking the set screw idea as I also use them on a...

    Yep, push the two take down pins out, swap uppers, push the pins back in. And yes, you'll eventually end up with several lowers with different stock options.

    Were those the SJHP that they had before the XTP lines? I had a partial box of them left over from a 357Mag I had back in the early 90's. When I first started shooting the first 357AR test barrel they were the first ones that got used up. This is...

    Looking at the SAAMI specs, there is a tolerance notation of +.002". That would allow you to use a 357 barrel, .380" case mouth dia, and .359" freebore/throat on your barrel so you could use .358" jacketed and cast boolits and still be within...

    Guys do it for 5.45x39 when fire forming 223 cases to it. The cases look funky with the rim and base still at .376"-.378" depending on who's brass it is. My gut says it can't be as safe as a proper case. I'm sticking with 357AR as the 350 legend...

    Since we're in the levergun section and talking about a straight walled case for special DNR zones that prohibit bottlenecks or cases that are too long. The easy way to go would be to get a marlin 336. Get a 1894 Marlin 357barrel and ream it to...

    From the PTG reamer print the throat is .357" (so 9mm) and the chamber mouth is .391"ish. Might of just been a test version and the final size could be .355, .357. or .358. With the .012" case taper you'll want to use a modified steel die with...

    Probably right, but if it is 1.8" I'd be tempted to go ahead and stuff one in an ar15 just for spite.

    Interesting huh? It's hard to say for sure how long the case is but it sure looks similar. Hope it's 1.6" so there's a source of factory ammo for me! The article wasn't supposed to be out until Shot Show. I suppose we'll have to wait until...
