    ...........The 580 series was the same action for the 5mmRF, other then a modification made for the extractor on the 5mm. The 591/592's (or the 580 series) can be modified into a centerfire. Some info here:...

    If you spend as much time grooming it after it is wet as a mink or beaver does, it should be just fine. I will say, make it and take it to a shoot, you will immediately be branded as a flat land pilgrim. Wait a minute. Black polyester thread?...

    Note* everything I load with lead is kept below 1000fps. that could be where we differ in the opinion. generally diameter and shape are king of how things work, but it depends on the launch. I don't shoot much of my lead below 1,000 fps except...

    I've had various powder tricklers over the years, and always got dissatisfied with them. The last one is an RCBS that I keep so I won't waste my money on another one. What I found works the best for me is either a teaspoon borrowed from the...

    Thanks for the reply, I'll more than likely stick with the RCBS hand priming tool that I have used since the early 90's. Robert

    if it's a random issue and you have eliminated the cases being mixed, or different lengths etc. then I would look at the boolit itself. you might just have one cavity that isn't quite closing all the way and it is a bit larger in the exposed...

    I use a NOE 200gr which has much less taper to it, and feeds fine in all my 40 cal guns. Plenty accurate, doesn't seem to care what powder is used.

    I am 68 and pump up my Disco and Hastan 44 2,000 and 3,000 psi guns. I will say I shoot the 44 less because of the pumping issue. If you are talking 3,000 psi guns, you are talking SCBA, not SCUBA tanks for air supply too. SCBA tank or Nitrogen...

    I went and looked up the data OP is talking about. Hodgden say 'LRNFP', but which one? They dont say who makes the bullet they tested. Lyman has 2 200gr data set, one for the Lee 452-200-RF, and for a lyman #452460. The lee is a RNFP style, the...

    all those little notched pieces have a letter on the end of them. the notch lined up on a bar to make the letters line up into words. the type setter would lay it all out. when I buy lino-type from our print shop here it comes as spacers or the...

    key holing is a function of stability. your either spinning the boolit fast enough to be stable or you ain't. the grip on the rifling will determine whether your spinning the boolit enough or not. too small = skidding and non stabilization. ...

    Jim that's more like what I use. over speeding a large meplated boolit into flesh and bone will give you a very dead animal. you'll have to look for some of the parts and pieces but it will be dead. I remember hitting a grouse too far down when...

    the white is lead oxide it generally forms from being exposed to water. I do a lot of term storage of normal lubed boolits, 5 gallon buckets do a great job. if I were to put some stuff up for true long term storage I would just do a coat of...
