    Limit your ross to one brand of cases. Open up the necks with an 8mm a lyman M die. Resize your cases so that they give a crush fit in your rifles chamber. Try a few first before locking down the die ring. Sort of a cut and try approach to your...

    Any of the pre '64 actions a far as I know did not have the gloss finish that the later ones have. I at one time or another had about 6 of them. All had the matte finish and ever my post '64 M70 match rifle the action has the matte finish. Although...

    Have Marlins in 357 mag and 44 mag, also winnies in the usual rifle calibers. Even with warm not hot loads in the 44 mag my fired cases do not show that rather large bulge in the case. I suspect that your chamber is overly large and your loaded...

    I wish Marlin would come out with a super 32-20. Heavy octagon barrel, pistol grip stock,full length mag tube and a faster twist than the 1x20 they used to use. And leave off the safety.And have weaver come out with a base that allows more...

    Used a 18.5 lb spring and a shok buffer to prevent frame battering. Went to a 16 lb spring as all I shoot is lead 230 grain same as hardball. But still use the shok buffer as they are cheap. If going to a lighter spring I'd still keep a shok buffer...
