    Well those old K4's were pretty tuff. I still have both of mine after a lifetime nearly, only because I'm not dead yet. Lead Pot had it right IIRC. The post is used just like the front sight on a iron sight. Being a fixed power scope. You can find...

    It takes a while in the melting pot to carefully flux out the graphite and other dirt. Then you are ready to go. IIRC magnum bird shot is about 3% Sb (antimony). He'll want to look that number up to check and then it will be an approximation. I...

    Was thinking they may send you a print. Since they obviously have them. This is all I could find. Simple armorers manuals.

    I'm sure Jes would rebore to 31 caliber. Thing is any worn out barrel probably would not clean up. Since you are only looking at .002" or les on the radius. Also a good chance the barrel isn't even that straight. Opening it up to 32 caliber with a...

    I'm just a hobbyist not a gunsmith. However in my experience with AR-15's. Your gas block should be fit tighter even before you tighten the set screws. You might want to get a micrometer out and see if the barrel is undersized or your gas block bore...

    Always thought a 20 gage with cast round balls in some fashion of cup or patch would be the cats meow for Illinois shotgun only deer. But they allow us to use muzzle loader during shotgun season. Since I already have more long guns than fit into my...

    Correct but my father and Grandfather were such tight wads they did not want to pay money for the mask. Warnings were large on every bag. Big issue was when you burned the bags. Later they came out with brand name lock and load with plastic...

    Yes and what is a flip is the same people want us to drive fart powered cars. with roundup we don't have to run a cultivator plow through the filed. That was days on end on a tractor burning five gallons per hour of fuel. So where is the global...

    GabbyM replied to a thread CZ 527 in .357 Mag in Special Projects
    Making cases from 223 brass would be laborious. I gave up on making 222 from 223 after the first 380 cases. But the 9x23 with off the shelf brass might be the way to go. You could use a bore ride bullet giving COL longer than would fit in a pistol....

    Tim you just want to break it down to a point where you can get control of a group. Just saying that because I have figured out you are one sick sob. Other than that I am totally for states rights. Don't fool yourself into thinking you will get...

    What is your caliber and weight of bullet? I just shoot the 45 caliber and Lee makes two different weight bullets. Short 200 grain is for round ball twist guns in 45 caliber as it's about one caliber in length.

    Given the excellent round a 30 Commie is I think I'd just stick with one factory made in 7.62x39mm. For a cast bullet shooter good for game under a hundred pounds. The 222 Rem I bought in the LUX model depicted I my avatar is about as sweet as...

    It's the wax that is setting up I'd recon. Do we know what solvent is in the wax? Regular VCT tile floor wax is water solvent. That's why we don't use it in these applications but use a wax made to be wood friendly. Which water isn't. The solvent is...
