    My Mom never hit us. My Dad took care off that. But he didn't use his hand. He used a rolled up newspaper, same as the dogs. I know there's something FREUDIAN there, but I don't think about it. He did hit us wearing Boxing Gloves, and you could...

    Kev, My bore had the raised part of the pits ground down, it also rounded the edges of the lands a tiny bit. I'm not really sure about that because it was hard to tell the lands from the grooves when I started. Now I will keep the first 3rds into...

    That would take a REAL TOP QUALITY GUNSMITH to weld up a bolt face. I saw a few in the early to late 1960's for 222REM, but then most every one switched to the REM 700.

    I've seen the BULLETS from MONTANA BULLET WORKS. They are truly works of art. I could cast 1000 from my old 2cav & 4cav moulds to come up to match the 100 my friend bought to try. The #358156 is the very BEST BULLET for a strong hot load in...
