    Looking forward to your future posts building a bullet collator. Most every device known to man was the result of some one looking around and finding what was handy and making the rest.

    Oh yeah, you jiggled my memory of an earlier thread of yours detailing annealing and re-hardening. http://castboolits.gunloads.com/showthread.php?347324-bullet-swage-die-making-tutorial-well-sort-of Now that I found the link, there is a bunch of...

    Nice project. Are you using O-1 steel?

    clodhopper replied to a thread Ut-oh! in AirGuns
    I had not seen this until yesterday. Higher shot count between fills would be nice, but would also add to length, or bulk. It still takes a probe to fill, which requires more stuff you can't do without. They claim it has a nice trigger, but every...

    Is that because of air blowback in your eyes? or carry over from powder burners and the thought o 62,000 PSI so close to your face?

    clodhopper replied to a thread 5.7 X 28 Expander in Swaging
    My first go at expanding 5.7 cases was with a RCBS 7mm TCU resize die, the expander ball was designed to neck up .223s to 7 mm. That worked ok until I tried to expand annealed 5.7 brass, those that did not collapse were left with rims deformed by...

    That is pretty reasonable, the ability to fire a few shots quickly, then recharge air pressure during lulls give the best features of pumpers and PCP in one gun. The shot show video was a little unclear, at one point they said you could prefill...

    The springers have a lot of good features as you mention, self sufficient being real big. But I like optics and most springers just kill them. I do have an old Anchutz springer with opposing pistons, it is kind to the cheap scope mounted on it,...

    Going to the darkside is a leap. The cost of supplying high pressure air is a big chasm. I started out with a air-venturi 4500 PSI pump. It wasn't horrible but, just when the shooting was getting fun, it was time to pump. I kept coveting air...

    Hatsan is stuck on the idea of a fill probe. But they sure make some interesting air guns. I am stuck on the idea of the foster quick connect. Just seems like the occasional replacement of O rings on the fill probe are needless maintenance. ...
