    Here is a pic of my process for reducing 223rem down to 30 cal. The process is the same with the 9mm case. The process is a little slow and labor intensive but the results are perfect and repeatable. I don't do more then about .025 in reduction at a...

    Hello everybody, I'm looking for a replacement barrel for a Marlin 336 in .44 Mag. The current barrel has a good sized bulge/ring in the chamber about a half-inch up from the rim of the case. It's bulged bad enough that fired cases won't extract...

    I've been using it with powder coated gas checked bullets for 3 years now according to the 2015 date on the HBN bottle. I've also added to lube(no value I could determine) and used on a patch to condition the bore, helped with getting HBN back into...

    that's kind of the way I was taught. Dc flows through the entire wire cross section and ac flows mostly on the surface but keep in mind that most wire is made by weaving many strands together to make one conductor and the current flows on each of...

    Yep, the Cimarron Ubertis were several notches about the firearms Uberti sold under their own name. I would assume this holds true from the Cimarron ASM as well.

    Hand bang Em and save the money. If it's just a shed you can nail it off by hand faster than jacking around setting up and dragging the gun around.

    Actually the post you are referencing is new and is dated 7-6-2018 so it's quite relevant, besides that's good info anyway.

    Have you measured firing pin protrusion through the face of the breech block? I like around .050" protrusion to reliably strike primers. Some guns will work with as little as .040", but not all. I'd also be checking to ensure the firing pin travels...

    Lyman's data is correct. I've measured the psi. I've shot 5 gr Bullseye under a lot of 190 to 205 gr cast in many different 45 ACP weapons for years with complete satisfaction, it is my standard 45 ACP load. Five gr Bullseye under the 230 gr fmj...

    BT Sniper replied to a thread lubing cases in Swaging
    If one uses lanolin for deriming it is best to be sure it is all removed from the brass before tumbling in media. I used to use mineral spirits but no longer enjoy the smell. I have heard others here report that woolite fabric cleaner works well to...

    BT Sniper replied to a thread lubing cases in Swaging
    Before I had a tumbler I would coat the inside of a Ziploc bag with lube then add clean brass and kneed with hands to distribute lube. This worked well too. Not really any wrong way to apply lube, just make sure you use enough and that it is all...

    BT Sniper replied to a thread lubing cases in Swaging
    Annealing after deriming. Use whatever lube you wish for deriming. Only use quality swage lube for core seat and point form swaging. I now like to use RCBS case lube II for deriming only because it is so easy to rinse clean with only water....
