    I tried the same concept once for a 577 Snider, but used rolled up heavy paper instead of brass. I rolled a strip tightly around a wood dowel and pushed it into the case. They stayed in the case for several firings, but got charred and you have to...

    My father bought me one in 1972, I think it cost $72, three dollars cheaper than a Marlin 39 at that store. MSRP on a grade II is $699. If I was not in school or doing farm chores it was my constant companion hunting gophers all summer and...

    Maybe a Savage M-23 in .25-20, or better yet a .32-20,still fairly reasonably priced, or a slick Rem model 25 pump but they are kind of hard to find and expensive. I found one that someone drilled for a scope,got it for a decent price and really...

    Nice score Kev18, you could also ask Grumpa if he has some .32 Rem brass, as he was making them out of 30-30. Check him out in the Vendor section, and all feedback I've read is that it is great stuff. I recently bought a 425 in .30 REM, and it...

    Thank you for this post. This is quite interesting to me, as I have tried expanding 22 casings to larger sizes, to make into various powder dippers, with limited success. Do the cases ever collapse or split, and did you anneal once or several...

    The 88's are one of my favorites,actually a fine rifle but most are in such poor condition they aren't given much interest by mil-surp shooters , but if yours has a decent bore, it will surprise you how well it shoots, if you can still see the...

    I found an oddball, a Stevens High Power Mod. 425, in Cal. 30-30 REM. , {.30 Rem}, looks a lot like a Marlin but totally different style mechanism. Shoots very well with the same load I use in a M-8 Rem.
