    Renaissance wax. Sno Seal and the like will rot your leather - or at least the interface where it's sewn. I use Oberhauffs on my daily work boots and holster which works great, but it tarnishes at brass eyelets. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using...

    WOW!! Gotta say, that's a bundle of lettuce for aa kid. My 4 sons can all do quite well out to 750 yards (max at the normal range we go to) with rifles that cost between $165 (Remington model 7 - 243) to $325 (browning x bolt 300 wsm). I cannot...

    cwtebay started a thread Cleaning up in Factory Rifles
    Okay, so I loaned out two rifles to my BIL. He returned them yesterday, both have red rust on them. Neither is particularly valuable as far as collector value - 1964 Weatherby and an 1892 44-40. What's the best way to clean these back up? Bores...

    I reload for a 35 Krag, and had 3 at one point. The real issue that I found was variability in chambering. Apparently, the rebore is not always consistent! I used 35 WCF dies to form initially, and then 35 Remington neck sizing dies for...

    I am assuming that you have 2 - 1895 405 Winchesters? As the 401 Winchester Self Loading was only offered in the 1910 auto loader. I do load for both, however. The 401 WSL is fun to shoot, pretty boring to load for as the rifles I own and have...
