    Or try a different main thread to pose the question, I almost never go to black powder cartridge thread. Kind of stumbled on this by accident. I suspect I am not alone in going to specific main threads that are of interest. May want to try...

    I've seen a lot of that square flake powder. I recycle the scrap brass from my club's range and there are usually a number of milsurp duds in the brass bucket. I disassemble them before selling the brass to the scrap yard and that square flake is...

    There was also a thread on reducing trigger pull, one single washer placed under the flat spring for the trigger. I have not done it for mine but that may be a winter project this year. That trigger is probably the stiffest one I own. Almost...

    Didn't buy it but was gifted 1/3 lbs. Alcan AL-8. Probably going to burn it off in a 45 ACP. Think I can find loads for it.

    And reconsider the no upgrades. You may want to consider an extended magazine release and the automatic bolt release. Two simple additions that make it easier to use, especially with fingers that aren't as flexible as they used to be.

    I bought 50 correct head stamped brass from Buffalo Arms several years ago and they shoot great. (Annealed them this evening, at the price I paid, I don't need to lose any to neck splits.) They can be made from belted mag cases. I've done it and...

    I had a salesman's sample tube of Lenox Lube several years ago, the lubesizer was empty so I melted a sizer full of it. Shot well, no leading just too soft for my taste. I went back to conventional lube. I suspect most of the industrial wax based...

    I'd like to trade, have multiple 358 molds, maybe a 44 mold that would fit the bill. If we can arrange a trade I won't have to bug a friend about borrowing his mold.:drinks: Give me an hour or two to dig through what I have.

    I've got one of those, Lyman mold shoots great. I had it out last Saturday for a vintage military rifle match. Probably take it out again this weekend.

    I have an air gap, but I pre-heat the mold on a hot plate. I tried the "pressure cast" method with the sprue plate against the nozzle, never got the hang of it. The mold is definitely not hot enough and perhaps the lead is on the cool side. ...

    Or a older 77/22. New trigger and sear that should be available on line. Mine shoots very well and the added advantage of a nice walk around woodchuck rifle.

    This may be heresy, but several years back 3 friends bought identical Ruger Target 10-22's. Heavy barrel, laminated stock, stainless steel model. All 3 shoot better than they have a right to. And trigger jobs are easy. They have been shot in our...

    1870 Trapdoor in 50-70. Bought it in 1990. The wife went to visit her parents and left me unsupervised. $175 with a nice RCBS die set and almost a hundred pieces of brass. Only metallic I had reloaded up to that time was 308 using a Lee...
