    I really never gave a hoot about user-quantity of MJ. I offered the possessors two options--1) Cast their cares to the wind, OR 2) speak to Hizzoner about this faux pas. In 28 years, I never had anyone insist upon meeting the judiciary. I also...

    The one I got is a “Polar camel” brand and I’ve used it more than the Yeti’s I own since it arrived. Not that it’s any better or worse, I can’t see any difference in holding ice or construction but it looks “cooler”. Dishwasher safe for sure, so...

    Might try to bolt it to something with a larger foot print that is more ridged and screw and clamp that to the bench a 4x4 from from to back won’t flex as much unless you are tipping the bench. Might also try lubing your cases, that will require...

    Another vote for Chris's solution - get an aperture sight up front AND use a tang in the back. Do not lower your front sight, raise the rear, best done with the tang sight. Your paper patch load is just terribly wrong. If you are finding...

    That is crazy good accuracy. I promote the Penetrator version. Who needs rifling.

    If it's tapped for a receiver sight, you should be able to mount a small red dot, like a Bushnell TRS-80 to a rear mount. Worked like a charm with SMLE a while back. They're very accurate and no having to D&T more holes in the barrel,,,,,

    Welcome to the site and the craft. I have been casting for over 50 years and have been a member of this site and it't pre-cursor site since 1998. The internet has enabled bullet casting to take a giant leap forward.

    I think he has the 23B bolt action similar to this one, except mine is a .32-20. Agree with Char-Gar, today these have collector value and drilling holes in it to mount a scope will turn a $500 rifle into a $125 one. Try some cheap reader...

    Get a receiver sight and/or some glasses that enable you to use the sights. Don't descrate that fine old rifle! If you drill and tap it for a scope, I am not certain that even Jesus can get you into heaven. :-) I am 76 and with proper glasses can...

    That be the Redfield 102. The non-click adjustable all steel sight. They could be the dickens to sight in, but when set and locked down, are the best field/hunting receiver sight ever made.

    I don't know Squat about Blue Dot, having never laid my eyes on it. I am however passingly familiar with 2400 in the 38 Special. You do not get a clean burn with 2400 unless you get to the upper pressure levels. Overall, it is a poor choice. A...

    The fastest way I know to seriously wear the blue on a good revolver is to put it in a Kydex holster. I use one for my Glock 19, but who cares about the finish wear on a Glock?

    Nope, not a lube dent. This will happen most every time, unless you go slowly, drop the press ram and rotate the case in the shell holder about 1/4 turn every time. It will take about 4 to 6 passes to get the case all the way sized without the...

    I have no experience with Uberti rifles, however I do have a Browning Traditional Hunter in 30-30 that I have had for better than 16 years. It is a finely made and highly accurate rifle with cast bullets. It would be one of the very last rifles I...

    I would have predicted a much tighter group. I would try the Tru-Ball penetrator.

    The Henry design is very similar to other break open rifles built pre 1898, and I see no reason it wouldn't be allowed? The tip up design is very similar to Stevens Tip Ups, and even more so to Wurrflein tip up rifles. Slightly different release on...

    I will stay far way from the science/pressure stuff, because I know nothing about it. That said, I will ask the OP why do you want or need max pressure loads? I have been loading for various 357 Mag revolvers for 50 years or so and can't remember...

    Likely a 9X57 Mauser Lyman 310 neck sizing die. Any 38 Special/357 Mag expander can be use. It is a very good round, with thump about like the 358 Win. A great deer and elk round. I also have one of the Lyman Shell Resizer FL die in this...
