    The only time I've used one is on a Deer Creek H & A copy under hammer rifle - and tat was to protect the wood of the forearm. I have a H & A under hammer (original) that I have had to do a major "re-do" on to repair some stock issues - I'll...

    We very rarely eat bacon anymore - the cardiologist doesn' like it. :-( When we did, we avoided all the hoopla of getting th ee skillet out and instead, put it between layers of paper towel and did it in the microwave. My mother always used a...

    Lots of good input and for me, I still go back to the individual rifle and what works best. I've never been a fan of tight patching that required a gorilla to get it to the breech - I pretty much have always used what rfd talks about - sometimes...

    +1 ^ ^ ^ ^ Check what osteodoc08 says . . . . eliminate each possibility at a time. Easy enough to cycle and see if you are getting rifling marks on the boolit . . . take a black felt pen an coat the heck area an cycle . . . if there is binding...

    I agree ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ I have a number of them and sometimes use them when sizing boolits to load with my 310 tools - just for the heck of it. They worked the same way as Lee's push through bullet sizer that goes on a press - only by hand. There is...

    I have several of the NOE FN molds that I use in my 30-30s. I'd have to go dig them out as I don't remember the numbers - I think one is the one you are talking about. I also have one that is about a 120 - 150 grain - again, it's been a while...

    Another example that gets the AMERICAN CITIZEN taxpayer to thinking . . . If you can see it - tax it. If it moves - tax it. If it EXISTS - tax it. The great majority of taxes are grossly "mis-spent" and it seems today, that the left feels...

    Read the label and see what it's made of - if it's 100% natural - i.e. linen or cotton - no reason it won't work. Materials are made and treated with "sizing" - that's why it looks so flat and neat on the bolt. You need to wash it to remove the...

    Everybody does it differently and it still works . . . I'll just add this. I shoot .36 caliber C & B. For the .36 cal, I use a 3/8 hollow punch that was in a set I bought at Harbor Freight. You will of course have to "size" you punch to your...
