    Has anyone else used valve grinding compound? I use it on a gauze 4x4 attached to a dowel in my drill. Thought of it while helping a friend with an engine job a few years ago. I like the results! Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk

    Along these lines - would truncating the bullet base help? I have pulled apart several original 41 Long Colt, 38wcf, etc and found the base to be hollow. I have inferred that this is to provide an expansive skirt to "seal" the bullet against the...

    As do I! I have always found that what some find elementary - others find novel. I wish I could learn just one "elementary" trick each and every day. I shared that one because I have found that if one person doesn't know something - chances are...

    Greetings all! I have read many posts here and in other forums about using bullets designed for the 357 magnum in a 351 wsl. Can someone please enlighten me on this procedure? I have an order mold for a 180gr +/- boolit, but frankly I have had...

    This popped up while I was on eBay. Advertised as "vintage". Looks to me like what a lot of you all were eluding to. $18.50 + shipping! Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk

    And I apologise. I said tang. It's a Skinner receiver sight. The express folds nice and flat to use it. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk

    No is the short answer. But I replaced my dad's with an express sight, and added a tang sight for the main game. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk

    Here's something kind of interesting. I came across a mosin nagant carbine chambered in 351 wsl on a bargain table a few years ago. It's definitely not a wall hanger, but it's been fun to play with. I have loaded some of the upper end loads ( and...

    I appreciate your effort! 212 grain 6mm would definitely be an interesting projectile!!! As for the comment on the safety of this rifle, I appreciate your opinion. But I think it is quite inappropriately. The three issues that are spoken of are...

    Thank you for the help! I should have been more clear, I am wanting a "long for weight" bullet for it. I have several firearms chambered for it and they are various platforms. It's fairly apparent that bullet length is crucial. Sent from my...

    I have been shooting 6mm Lee Navy for quite some time now. I have had a large supply of Hornady 100gr interlock round nose until recently. I haven't had much luck with cast, so am looking for a jacketed alternative. I came across a supply of...

    I do see your point, but shot placement has to be near perfect. Woodleigh makes their hydrostatic solid (massive tissue disruption though), Grand Slam makes a true monolithic solid, as does Northfork I believe. Also, several of the turned bullet...

    Yep, 276 pederson would be the only "factory" round. But the pleothora of 276 rounds that were experimented with in the first half of the last century could have your markings be an example of one of those. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
