    I want one as well. I understand that my 356 Winchester will fill the same niche with cast but really want a M71. Congratulations on your find. Tony

    Posted here because the deal originated here. Blackriver posted some 30 Carbine brass and bullets for shipping costs only late last month. Themoose answered first; I was a close second. Themoose graciously suggested blackriver send the brass to...

    Your thoughts are right on. Tests on cast bullets 70 years ago proved the slightest deviation in the bullets base affected accuracy. Have you ever seen the physics experiment where identical projectiles are fired and repeatedly hit the...

    I have used graphite applied by pencil in my cavities and on mold surfaces for years to keep these small lead deposits from sticking, so I know that graphite is no problem with PC. I can't see how the spray would be any different as it appears to...

    Ruger says 4.62" which is not 4 5/8" Again, they may be 4.625" Or, possibly Ruger does not use common usage rounding, which would dictate that they market the barrel as 4.63" Model: 5102 Caliber: 45 Colt Capacity: 6 Barrel Length: 4.62"

    My Urberti Bisleys were sold as 4.75 inches aka 4 3/4" My Rugers were sold as 4.62 inches 5/8" is close and may be more accurate. 5 8 = .625"

    I don't like the idea of driving steel rods down my barrels so fire and water trap all my slugs. I first cast pure lead bullets for a particular caliber and powder coat them. I load a very light load, just enough of a charge to clear the barrel,...
