    Hey . . . . seems like some days just go that way. Could have been worse . . . you could have been trying to push a 8mm casing into a 308 FL die! Those 308 boolits would be a bit sloppy in a .323 bore if you had been sizing an 8mm in a 308 instead...

    Yep, mine is marked W for Winchester. I'm guessing we will have to measure the leaf/blade and go off the measurement? It would be better to replace the blade than aiming below the heart of a deer and blowing out the backbone at close range. Going to...

    If I remember I think there might be a number on the inside base of my blade when I pushed it out. Probably telling me what height it’s is. I’ll wait till someone chimes in. I’m sure by changing the height of the front sight the ladder peep...

    I know this is an old post but hoping I will get some help with the correct size for my front sight replacement to get my POA lowered 8”. As outpost stated every .15” of adjustment raises or drops POA approx 3.9”. That means I need a front sight .3”...

    Been using mine for traplines. I popped a rabbit with it the other day hiding in the brush at 10 yards right between the eyes. Those Winchester 333’s are destructive. It exited in the stomach and zipped a 3” hole in it with everything pouring out. I...

    From what I’ve read and seen most can’t hit a building if locked in it with rimfire green Ammo. It’s not very accurate in just about all 22lr’s .

    My American bolt action 22WMR will stick one in the chamber and not extract after 50 rounds or so because of the powder fouling build up. I have to clean it quite regularly to be 100% reliable. Its extremely accurate but has a tight chamber. I...

    The only thing I don’t like with brass molds is I get tinning every time I use it. I have seasoned my mold by heating it in the oven a dozen times plus in a row by placing it in my oven and it doesn’t matter. I cast really hot so tinning will always...

    I measure a few fired cases out my gun I’m loading for with my hornady comparator gauge and then go off that particular measurement to bump back accordingly. To be honest I have just followed RCBS instructions for the last 20 years and turned my...

    If you give up on it I’ll trade you for my 1941 long branch sporter! Otherwise I’d tell you to free float the barrel and bed the action. Also lighten the trigger.
