    I'm still torn between water dropping or quenching out of an oven. I only use either oven quenching or water dropping for hardening bullets, not as a shortcut. I actually find air cooling easier. It certainly doesn't warp bullets. The problem I...

    I know most rifles now come with the nitro pistons installed from factory but it was an $89 up sell when I bough it in January 2010 from PyramydAir. I had to get the fastest rated 22 springer at the time and the Walther talon 22 seemed to be it....

    Wow, that's a longer tube than I've ever dealt with. As said, there are offset rings that may work for this, but that honestly does not look bad to me.

    No. After a month of dinking around with the 575 improved minie, then a stint with the 578 minie, I've had enough of wad slugs. The size isn't the problem. The 575 cast right at .575", and the 578 I got .579" with COWW. The 575 with 20S1 wad gave me...

    Mine was a bad one. My trigger was heavier than the pull gauge could read. Unfortunately Henry seems to have become content with how they are. If one day they decide to offer barrels, or other upgrades, than these could be a real treat. They do...

    I'm old, like more "traditional" models. I have several Henry lever guns and can't say enough good about the ones I have and over the years, I have owned Winchesters, Marlins, etc. as well. That said . . . . When I first looked at this one,...

    That is bizarre. I'd look for rough chambers. Better yet. Send it to Ruger, and say it's ejecting hard with 32 s&w. They will have it fixed in no time.

    There is more to primer flattening, making it questionable at best. As I've said, one of my SP101's severely flatten primers with factory ammo, and handloads as well. Yet my GP100 hardly ever badly flattens primers with anything besides the Federal...
