    am44mag replied to a thread best forums out there. in Our Town
    The best forums that I've found are as follows Cast Boolits - by far the best for bullet casting knowledge, one of the best if not the best for general reloading knowledge too. It's also one of the few forums where experimenting with new,...

    How about this. I found two places out of the way where I could possibly put a more permanent berm. One is down in a small hollow and would be up against a thicket. There's a decent sized hill on the backside of it, and it's about 155 yards from my...

    Do you guys know of a good gunsmith that would sleeve the chamber for a fair price? There are no professional gunsmiths around here, so I will most likely have to ship the gun. About how much would that kind of work cost? Sent from my...

    Yeah, I really liked the design of those grips. Had they been oversized instead of undersized, I would have been fine with just doing the final fit myself. I think I'll make a set of grips for that revolver. S&W grips are kind of a PITA to make, but...

    I don't think I can do anything with these, the rear and butt are right on, but the front is bad. It feels fine, but looks bad. I think what they did was angle the grind inwards when cutting that contour. Sent from my SM-G965U using...

    I could not get a pic of the pitting in the chamber. My camera wouldn't fit low enough into the action to see it, and it's mainly at the front of the chamber. I tried to get a pic of the brass, but I couldn't get a great pic of that either. This one...

    I'll see if I can't get some pics in the next couple of days so you guys have a better idea of what I'm working with. I can definitely try polishing. Really if I could get it to a point where it extracts well enough that I don't have to...

    I finally got my set from them. Beautiful grips, but I am not happy with the fit. One side won't go on and the other is off and possibly undersized. I'm also not too happy with the finish on the butt. It's kind of scuffed/faded. I didn't have time...

    I plan on loading to roughly M80 specs with either BL-C(2) or H4895. I have no reason to want to push this round hard, I have other guns that will do that far better. I think what I'll do is do my load development in the 7.62 cases and see how those...

    I recently bought a 50-70 Trapdoor and like it, but there is one issue that is bugging me. One area of the chamber has some pitting in it, and it's preventing the brass from fully ejecting. It will extract about 1/4", at which point you can usually...

    So, I have not been able to find a definitive answer on this. Is there really a difference in 7.62 NATO and .308 Win brass, or for all intents and purposes, are they the same? I've read claims that the 7.62 brass is thicker and will need to be...
