    As I don't have any more Cosmolene any more, would liquid Alox or something thinner like BLL be a good rust preventer in bores that might not be shot for a few years? I live in a relatively dry climate so rust isn't a real big concern, but I would...

    Looks like a neat little target gun , wish they made affordable pistols like that and the Stevens tip- up again. Have thought about trying to make a mono- block like that and fit it to those old broken revolvers that almost everyone has, and make...

    I just looked at old American Rifleman adds, 1938, the new IMR powders @ $1.60 # and primers cost $3.25 K. Now a 1950 example from a Hodgdon ad, IMR or Hercules powders at $1.80 # and primers at $6.50 . To me it seems like the powders have...

    So if a company manufactured a double barrel pistol , with rifling and 12 inch barrels, that would be legal ? I think I want one.

    I store in a wooden box in the corner of a basement room, bare cement on bottom and two sides, probably around 65 degrees all year long. An idea I've thought about is to mount a small water tank above the box , with some kind of temperature...

    I was looking around Powder Valley's powder and primer prices and noticed they had the Rem EtronX primers in stock, and for only $189/ 1000 !!! Does anybody actually use one of these rifles anymore? I can't imagine with Remingtons current financial...

    I believe the second piece is to use Lyman Tru-Line dies in a larger threaded press, the other item I could just throw out a WAG, maybe part of a shotshell reloader crimp starter insert holder?

    I have taken that bullet up to .447 to use in a .43 Mauser, but never thought about going any bigger. I won't cost much to find out, just two more wraps of paper! Perhaps you could wet wrap the first patch then when dry add a second dry patch to...

    There have been lots of Swedish rollers imported in the country, some of them rebarrelled to more popular cartridges. Maybe you could find one of the old 12.7x44 barrels and turn it down to fit in a 12 gauge and solder or epoxy it in. They are...

    If you can't find brass you could make some mexican match loads, pull the bullets and reload with a lighter load or with cast.

    I remember one time ,maybe back in the late 80's or early 90's there was a drought somewhere and we were all given a small amount of range cubes or lick tubs, according to the number of cows we reported to the FSA. Our area didn't really need the...

    Mine shoots very well with Lee's 175gr bullet and they only cost $20, that bullet and 16gr of 2400 should be a good start. NOE had a nice line of interesting choices but I'm not sure whats left in stock. Fun rifles,give us an update when you get it...

    I've cleaned a couple of really ugly moulds by using Kroil to soften the rust scale, then used some little scrapers made of brazing rod, I hammer them out like a little chisel and sharpen with a file, and just start scraping. The Evaporust sounds...

    I think the wholesale milk price is now in the $14 cwt. range, so that puts milk about $1.20 a gallon on the tanker leaving the farm. Then they take the cream, pasteurize it, cool it and bottle,store and distribute a heavy and perishable product to...

    The limit is 8 guns a year and many buy the limit, swap out parts to make them more correct, keep the gems and sell the dogs. And make a little money to boot

    At one time European American Armory Corp. sold a 45-70 conversion kit by Tanfoglio, to use in Baikal double shotguns. They would only work in 20 inch guns and I'm not sure if you could fit two of them or only in one side. Someday I would like...

    Years ago I had a Johnsons Automatics BB gun, looked like a submachine gun, was very well made of some kind of bakelite type plastic, and used a spring type of catapult system to propel the BB. I've never seen another one .

    It surprises me that 32 grs will reliably operate the M1, has anyone ever shortened the op rod springs to allow milder loads to function in their M1's? Would be an interesting experiment.
