    I have one and like it, although the priming system is unique. The press works well w/ my Quick-Measure.

    If you know the size of the target that is what you use. An average bull is about 6 feet at the shoulder. Knowing this holdovers are not that difficult. With a little practice range estimation based on target size is not that challenging. Also...

    BHuig Read what the ballistic engineer Brian Litz wrote about how much that excess spin affects your bullets accurazy at 1000 yards. Bryan Litz says: July 25, 2013 at 7:24 am For practical purposes, the answer is FALSE As a bullet arcs on...

    They would usually sit over a raised cup that caught the bullet as it dropped out the bottom. A rod device threaded into the press would push the bullet down through the sizer. Similar to a Lee sizer, except down instead of up.

    That only works if you have something behind to judge altitude. Out on the open plains it would have been extremely tough for even an excellent shot to know how far to hold over, and also judge and get the distance correct. I doubt buffalo would sit...

    What you just got is the equivalent of the .32-40 Remington Hepburn cartridge! The Rem. version of the .32-40 was a .30 caliber, and I never understood why they didn't refer to it as a .30-40 Straight?

    BHuij First let me say this about H335 in the .223/5.56 cartridge; H335 has been my "go to" powder for use with 45 to 55 gr jacketed bullets since the mid '70s. I have shot many pounds of it up in such loads in Bolt actions SSs and gas guns. ...

    The only thing that I have shot in mine is M852 or M118LR. I wasn't expecting much when I got them. I just wanted the cheap parts. I do all my on work including chambering so I looked at them as a cheap parts source.

    A rotisserie motor is a bit too slow, as far as RPM. I guess it would be OK if you put them on now and planned to reload them in April or May. 1 RPM and they may be ready in October, turtles make baby turtles faster than one RPM.

    Why is theirs split on the bottom? M14 front sight is 5/8x24 threaded - you can find other slip on sights like for the Ruger Mini-30 that your gunsmith/machinist can thread for you. I'd try contacting Tikka's US importer ...

    That's good they do. It's like cars, what is it, they have to make parts for 10 years? DPMS still has some of their older type AR10 stuff. I wish they would have standardized them meaning all the manufacturers. This is probably the reason...

    Yup, and the idea was taken from an artillery shell. Not that the results were worth the effort.

    Still not gonna make all that difference unless you shoot at 1000yds. At 100 I doubt not that they will all go in a group that your rifle will shoot - if you mix them up. In other words, your rifle will make the difference, not the boolit.

    Cabot Hunter's Cheese - at WalMart of all places. "Seriously sharp" white cheddar. I agree, Dave, Asiago is good too. If you want to have some fun crumble a little blue cheese into the mix. I make omelets with Stilton.
