    I am not stating that the SAAMI chamber is the best for accuracy or even that is what CZ is using. Thats why I recommend a chamber cast. I am using the SAAMI chamber since it an easy too locate print of a 9mm chamber that does show what the actual...

    As to who case hardness barrels any of the barrels that are Melonite treated are case hardened. This is getting to be fairly common in both pistols and rifles. Same for Titanium Nitride surface coating that CZ is using on these. That is the same...

    I would start with a quality chamber cast or pound cast to see how it compares to a SAAMI chamber and what actually needs to be done. That can be found on page 27...

    The roll on the front indicates its a blank of some type. Could be a line thrower or some type of actuator.

    If the barrel is a CZ Shadows 2 it is not case hardened. Per CZ it is nitride coated. Titanium Nitride (TiN) is a very hard surface coating applied to metals in order to improve the surface...

    Are you trying to increase the lead/throat length or increasing the chamber size? Some tight 9mm chambers won't accept .358" diameter bullets due to increased the brass size from the .358" bullet. Not sure we are all using the same terms. ...

    The a couple of reasons that a barrel would be that hard is it's Melonite treated, chrome plated or is a machine gun barrel with a Stellite liner. Carbide will cut Melonite treated barrels. Several issues with throating a chamber using a tool post...

    If you can get the marble to hit first it will set the primer off. The case head would rupture but the front half the the shotshell moved very little. I haven't seen it done since the mid 70's and I always kept my distance but the kid doing it...

    What you guys never taped a marble to the base of a 12 gauge shell and threw it to a concrete surface? One of the guys I grew up with in a small town did it all the time. Same for hitting a 22LR in a vise with a hammer during shop class. I never...

    The Navy also liked them for night firing since they had no muzzles flash. If I remember correct some had a two mile range. A dynamite gun is any of a class of artillery pieces that use compressed...

    The type of steel used in firearm barrels normally expands at about .000006" per inch per degrees. If the barrel starts at 72 degrees that is a 278 degree difference. 278 x .000006 = 0.001668" for an inch. On a .355 bore that would be around...

    I don't use it for edible game but my Hmong friends love it with FMJ's for edible game. Like any cartridge proper bullet selection is paramount. The 17 grain V-Max are highly explosive the 17 grain hollow points less so and the FMJ's not at all. ...

    My experiences with the 17 HMR are somewhat different. I have several all CZ 452's or 453's. I order ammo from Mid-South when it's on sale in 2,000 or 4,000 orders. A case is 2,000 rounds. Primarily used for shooting prairie dogs but I have...
