    If you take out the internals on an OM, when you send it back, Ruger will charge you for all the parts they put into it.

    My Dad converted to Judism when He married My Mom. Was a good practicing Jew until the divorce 23yrs later. He always said if you put 2 Jews in a room, you'll get 3 Opinions. I married a Southern Baptist. Found out if you put 3 So Baptists...

    All My brass is reboxed at the range. I put every case thru a Vibratory tumbler with corncob media. Then cases are inspected and boxed for resizing/decapping. After I get around to resizing/decapping, then the cases go into a sonic cleaner....

    WOW!!! I Guess My Glock should have blown up about 25yrs ago. I bought a M23 when they came out in 1992. Only ammo I could get was F-C 180gr Lead. Shot maybe 500rds before I cleaned it. 400lead and then 100 Full Metal Jacket. My gun did not blow...

    I've never cast muzzleloading projectiles from anything but pure Lead. Can't see any reason to use anything harder or PC either. I fire 20+ rounds at a time out of my T/C Harken or White Mtn Carbine, and never have any leading problems that...

    Walks replied to a thread What's your favorite in Leverguns
    Savage, Winchester, Marlin. The real American made Rifles. In that order. After that the Uberti made copies of the Win 92, 66, 73, 86. I did have a Browning B92 in .44Mag, it was sweet. Rossi's & henry's are below the bottom of the list.

    I think Lyman still sells "brass baggies", which are small plastic net baggies closed with a twist tie. Fill a with a box of 9mm and dump in a tumbler full of .45ACP.

    This morning I beat my brains out trying to figure out why my 20yr old Hornady L-N-L PM suddenly started to drop widely varying charges of Titegroup. I pulled 150 loaded rds of suspect .44Mag Cowboy Ammo out of rotation and dumped them in an Old...

    During the Civil war the 1858 Remington was the most sought after pistol. Colts were more plentiful because the North had a contract with Colt. The south took every Reminton they could find on the battle feild. I have both & love each. The Colts...

    I think Hornady makes a 150gr bullet specifically for the .300 Savage. I think it's a SST, for the lower velocities of the .300Sav. Check their latest Manual if you can.

    That's about $14 more then just 3yrs ago. They seem to introduce new products every year. But just let the Casting line stumble along with no quality control. No wonder all the new small shops are "eating their lunch".

    Most of the weight listed for Lyman molds are for bullets cast of Lyman #2 alloy. If your alloy has a higher lead content then the bullets you cast will be heavier. The #358156 is a Thompson Gas Check design. Lyman took over producing his molds...

    I started buying old Reloading manuals when I was back in H. S. in the late 1960's. Have most from Post WW2. Back in the true glory days of the Gun Show. Great reference material. The Old-Timers knew a lot more the we do today. Old stuff...

    Like I said, do you feel lucky? The Bible is the word of God because God inspired scholars, theologians and apostles to put it together. People doubt it's credibility but then they'll read the daily paper and believe it first before they believe the...
