    I have a few very beautiful concept theories on how to build the cartridges. The saddest part is, the "easiest" to do is actually the most expensive in the long run via having to toss so much special order materials. But the irony is that in...

    The issue is with the ammunition, I had thought it was a rifle issue but i solved THAT issue by taking a random sampling of 10 rounds from each box i had, and running it through a neighbors 22 rifle. same rough rate of failure to fire, same abysmal...

    Minuteshaver replied to a thread .22 LR Available in Rimfire Area
    the quality is NOT what it was. Hell, to be honest I don't believe the quality of rimfire ammunition is what it was in say perhaps 1942.

    Its just that the most comprehensive options are hard to determine on the rifle itself. I don't particularly have much issue with break open single shots, but the concept is for a fast shooting rifle to engage multiple targets at a time. I can...

    CCI CB Shorts and CB longs. CCI has a factory control issue with this ammunition. I have dealt with them in the past about it, and they felt that a 30-40% failure rate, failure to fire on the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, or 4th try by rotating the cartridge...

    Minuteshaver started a thread airgun basics in AirGuns
    A few simple basic air gun questions. I haven't gotten a new airgun in well, 18 years so I have no idea on the current status of the industry. Is there a standardized rifling pattern? Standardized twist rate? Has any of the cranky target...

    Since primer only or 1 grain powder charge is so well known for being horridly recoiling, I don't think id have to worry about resharpening anything.

    In a video on 22 pellets in 22 caliber center fire rifles, one gent went from using small rifle primers in his 5.56 case by simply taking a primer pocket reamer for large rifle primers, and using that to "machine" the pocket to accept large rifle...

    if 7.62x51 is a tad to much in recoil, through on a spikes dynacomp. AND put a spare 20 round magazine in the butt stock. Or go back to 7x57 or 6.5x55. WHAT leadership? TO survive as an officer you gotta go political.

    I don't need anything in a center fire caliber like .22 hornet or .223 Remington as any 22 magnum bolt rifle has enough diameter in the receiver to handle either case cut down to 22 lr/22 magnum length. Only actual genuine issue becomes feeding...

    it takes a good deal of effort to destroy a mosin rifle, especially a hex receiver. But I think it helped that by not having lawyers around telling you it wasn't safe, that somehow THAT helped you survive.
