    I drilled a un annealed grade 8 bolt yesterday with a gold colored (Tin-Ni?) high speed steel drill. 1/2"bolt, 3/16 hole. 450 rpm, dark cutting oil, it went well. Have not tapped a grade 8 bolt, give it a try, a high speed steel tap would be much...

    I have overcome that issue by having a short length of punch, pushing the case through then starting the short punch on top the punch mounted on the ram, and push some more. Yeah, a pain. Do that for a long session and the wheels start turning,...

    I had to peen the lid holes on my Thumbler. Over time the had indented some. Mainly because I would use it without washers. Sorta like old metal valve covers on engines. Shelly

    Rifle arrived today. I was pleased the receiver has a picatinny rail top, my 2 year old synthetic marauder has a 3/8" rail. I had planned to put a leupold 3-9 airgun scope on the rifle. That scope has a nice set of Millet 3/8 rings on it. But...

    I look forward to your reading about your new air gun. The molds by NOE could make shooting a .30 affordable.

    Got an email from Pyramyd, my new bb gun should be here Friday. Weird how Pyramyd schedules incoming shipments in two week increments. I suppose it's easy for them but not too reassuring to the customer. Other than the projected arrival date for...

    Looking for data for 375 Winchester in a 94 Win. I've got dies, brass, a 275 gr mold for a boolit in my H&H's, and a 250 gr mold on the way. I'm looking for a load to drive the 250's to about 1600 fps and the 275's to 1400 or so fps. I'm thinking...

    No new air gun yet. The nice lady on the phone at Pyramyd air thought I should have it by yesterday. It was not in stock when the order was placed, but was expected to arrive at Pyramyd March 25. I checked on the 25th, the projected date of...

    I’m probably going to try steaming it up then light sanding. I am concerned about making it worse. The rest of the gun is immaculate. Ordered brass and dies. Today I’ll go thru my molds to see if my 378’s are suitable.
