    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.

    I didn't dig too far checking if these will do the job, just thinking off the top of my head they might work: https://www.starlinebrass.com/brass-cases/5-in-1-Blank-Brass/ But I've been wrong before, just ask my mother-in-law....................

    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...

    Received a combination mold with one cavity for the 416 Rigby, and one cavity for the 450 Nitro Express from Accurate. Will try it out tomorrow. Looks like a very nice mold. This is my first Accurate mold. Hope it's as good as the molds that...

    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.

    15meter replied to a thread Lacquer in Gunsmithing Tips & Tricks
    The reason I use the gel varnish is I can put a coat on and go on about my work in the shop without worrying about raising any dust to get in the finish while it is drying. Even with lacquer, you can get dust in it in the first 10-15 minutes. And my...

    I've used gel type varnish my self with great results. 3 coats in a day 6-9 coats total. Exceptionally good looking finish that is very durable. Used on my Mahogany veneer dining room table 20+ years ago and it still looks great. On the gun stocks I...

    I'm not sure using non-Garand spec ammo would effect resizing the cases. Break/ bend op rods and other assorted ills to the rifle but I'm not sure it would expand the case so much that it would be impossible or approaching impossible to resize. ...

    Thanks, apparently there aren't a lot of these being used out there. And the way my fingers are working I'd use them on 5 round magazines.

    Habitat loss in Michigan is the number 1 reason for declining small game numbers, and I suspect in most of country. 50 years ago virtually every farm had hay for livestock that didn't get cut the first time until early June when the pheasants, quail...

    As the title says, looking for recommendations. There are a bunch on the market, I'm looking for people who have used them, not people who are paid to make reviews. Rude to put it that way, but I've read enough reviews on some of the sites...
