    It's my life. Making junk work again. It's fun stuffing a bent up piece of brass in a die just to see if it can be used again. Use it up, wear it out, make it do or do without.

    Yep, good enough is good enough and we each have our own ideas what good enough is for our own uses. Some folks need the absolute very best, I don't.

    I gave my first bolt 22 a Mossberg to my oldest son. It's still a good shooter. My favorite is a 1919 Savage NRA target rifle that my dad got for me about 1965. It will shoot 1/2" at 50yds with Peters brick ammo. I had a 10/22 once. It shot about 2"...

    Mine is cleaning primer pockets so I don't. I uniform rifle primer pockets but after that one time job I don't clean them again. Pistol primer pockets I don't fuss with at all.

    The results page is interesting in that even at $950 the Turban is best in only 3 of the categories. Each of the RCBS holds 2 and several presses are very close to the Turban in several areas for a whole lot less $. Not being a bench rest shooter...

    They are not very strong but they work very well uniforming cast boolets, bumping up size and changing nose profile provided you stay away from large very hard cast boolits. The guy that had my press before me worked it pretty hard as the toggle...

    The nose punch holder (part A) is nothing more than a 5/16 fine bolt 2 1/2"long and the bolt spacer (part P) is a tube 1/2" OD ,5/16 ID, and 1.93 long. You will need the bolt spacer to keep things aligned but it is nothing fancy. Anyone with a lathe...

    I don't live in CA. but it is nice to see there are some options available for those with 22lr guns that still allow them to use them on small game. It's also good to see folks are working on being able to hunt with the older guns (25/20 being one...

    You can't get much better advice than this. The only thing I have to say about safety, is always wear gloves and eye protection. I am never to hot to wear blue genes and a long sleeve shirt when casting, and I live in Arizona.

    I tried 10 through 20 and stopped at 20 as it now shoots 1" at 50yds and I think that may be my limit not the rifles.

    This thought just crossed my mind. Is there any ammo for the 22lr that is legal for hunting in California and if so what is the cost? Or, what does one use instead of a 22lr for dispatching pests and other small game?

    I guess I'm old school, well I'm old too. I just like the feel of putting the boolits in position to seat, also when I use Lee liquid alox I wipe the base of every boolits on a piece of low knap carpet. I forgot to add that I load with a RL 550B...

    Bullseye shooting and combat shooting are different for me. I can shoot most any handgun fairly well in bullseye. In combat shooting if the gun isn't a natural pointer it takes more time, practice and concentration to force the front sight on target...

    rbuck351 replied to a thread 2400 in a 22??? in Rimfire Area
    I would suspect that the longer, thicker case is necessary to safely get more velocity from the 22lr. As many different manufactures that have loaded 22lr over the last 100+ years, I think one of them would have found a solution for a faster 22lr in...

    Yep, starting with a too slow powder is safer than one that is too fast. My guess is that 2400 is too slow to get in trouble but that is just a guess and I would use caution and start with a low charge. Traffer's test with HS6 show that although it...

    I have tried the 22lr reloading kit and have found it lacking with the primer compound. I might be doing something wrong but I don't get reliable ignition. If you are going to pull loaded 22lr and replace the powder I believe 2400 would be to slow...

    Other than the " hey look what I did" factor I don't see reloading 22lr to make a lot of sense. The Hornet makes a lot more sense but my favorite is the 25/20.

    There is no weight in zero gravity and shortening one side of a fulcrum by half would double the amount of force required to do a given amount of work on the opposite side. No more no less. The only difference of force on the pin in a gravity area...
