    303guy "What this does show is that CUP values are not very accurate which is probably the only value of this chart." Have to agree 100% with that! CUP is only a measurement of the maximum psi that crushed a copper pellet so much. Not very...

    The Rick Jamison saga is a sad one. He was one of the better gun writers back in the 80s and 90s. I always enjoyed his articles and have a couple of his books, one on coyote hunting/calling. He went to a lot of personal expense, development and...

    The M43 PBL uses a 4' screen spacing both at the muzzle and with the down range screens. The proof screen is in the middle at 2' from the start and 2' in front of the stop screen. No real preference as with most such screens you want them far...

    Loop levers were common throughout all Marlin Ballard year of manufacture, if the gun was a pistol grip receiver and stock. Never made a straight grip loop lever, which kinda puzzled me since Marlin made many straight grip loop lever repeaters. I...

    Wildcats have indeed been created very successfully using the Oehler M43 PBL. Rick Jamison developed the Winchester WSM cartridges at his home in Oregon using the Oehler M43 with strain gauges on commercial barrels. He had custom reamers to...

    Perfectly understandable quest. I don't use the 165 RD bullet but do use a 170 gr (actually 178 gr when cast soft) 311041 over 6 gr Bullseye for 950 to 1050 fps out of my 30-30s depending on barrel length. Excellent small game load. However, I...

    Looks like you are off to a great start. When you find a powder that works well for you, buy it in bulk when you can. Alliant 2400 is a great cast bullet powder that can be used in a wide range of calibers. For the 7.62x39, I have pretty much...
