    There are massive amounts of info on surface finish requirements, it's getting the search parameters correct to find it and deciphering it once you find it. There are more surface finish measurement formulas than Carter has liver pills. (sold and...

    Stopped in the Gander Mountain on the west side of Toledo when they tried to be a firearms only store. They had what I remember to be a Winchester 35 Self Loading Rifle. I asked to see it and the clerk hand it to me, I looked at the hang tag and...

    Stopped at one peddlers table who was selling his homemade Tannerite for a ridiculous about of money. He started a sales spiel about how his was the best/loudest/brightest/slices/dices/makes julienne fries, but wait there's MORE. When he ran...

    I do it while holding the rifle vertical. I don't seem to get lopsided cases.

    And hold the rifle vertical while fire forming. Holding horizontal has the potential of lop-sided cases, couldn't believe the difference between horizontal and vertical when fire forming 38-55's from 30-30's. It does make your yard look sort of...

    Do a search for ER-32 chucks and collets, you'll probably find some thing you can use. I have an old South Bend 9x24 that has both a 3 and a 4 jaw chuck and 3MT collet holder and set of collets. The collets get 80-90% of the work, the three jaw for...

    I've used Trail Boss up to the 416 Rigby and think it is a great powder, got lucky and bought 5 lb. jug for $100. Wish I'd have bought 4 at that price. Never tried it when I was shooting cowboy in my 45 Colt revolver/Model 73, don't know if there...

    And I forgot the mink, never saw one growing up, see them running across the road at night regularly now. I have several friends who live on Lake Erie, on the shore. Mink on the dike in front of their houses is an everyday occurrence.

    Lyman 457122 may be an option also, 330+ grains with a big hollow point. Slow it down to 1200 fps and recoil will come down. Cast them out of a soft alloy for expansion and ease of filling the bore. You might want to use some mouse fart loads...

    Some of the odd ball stuff looks like he gets in in small quantities, maybe a vendor issue in that he is being rationed how much he can get on the less common stuff. Sells out rather quickly, you might want to email him, he responds quickly. I...

    I've tried the Noe 418-350-RF mold in two 416 Rigby's. I had problems in both with feeding from the magazine and with the nose fitting the chamber. One rifle is a Ruger, the other is a custom rifle built on a double square bridge action. When I got...

    Resized 270 Winchester in a 7mm Mauser die then into the polisher. Next, cut to length then anneal. Rode the M/C for a while and swapped some lies at Gun Club #2. Ah, the life of a derelict! Alias a retired drain on society.
