    An excellent bullet in my 7x57 M95 Mauser. When cast of COWW + 2% tin I found 26 gr IMR4895 with a Dacron filler to be a very accurate load. In your 7-08, should you choose to try IMR4895, I suggest starting at 20 gr and work up to 27 gr with a...

    746 watts is one hp. Whats are voltage times amperage. You know the voltage so if you get an amp reading with a clamp on amp meter and multiply it by your voltage you will get wattage

    we used 4/0 with a 2/0 neutral and 2/0 with a #2 neutral for urd installations. 4/0 for anything over a 100 amp service. 2/0 for a 100 amp. We used very little of the 2/0 because about any new installation anymore is at least 200 amp. We did have a...

    did you by a new factory carb or an ebay knock off. I bought a knock off for my Polaris sportsmen because they were 50 bucks and a new Polaris carb was over 200. What I did was waste 50 bucks.

    I load a lot of M193 equivalent 5.56 NATO on a Dillon 550B. Once fired military cases are sizes with a standard 223 Rem RCBS X-die (most often is a single stage press), the primer pocket swaged (Dillon primer pocket swage) and the case mouth...

    The Rhineland barrel shanks are threaded long enough to fit into the deeper threaded M93 - M96 actions. Your M98 SR action is not threaded as deep because of it's internal collar as mentioned. Thus the excess threading sticks out. A simple...

    Common accuracy modifications to tube fed lever actions back in the day were; File the end cap screw down so it doesn't put pressure on the barrel. Shorten the magazine spring so it sticks out the end of the tube 4 - 6". Free float the...

    I do a bit of walk abouts and have for years. My rifles for such are most often my Winchester M70 XTR or my Contender Carbine both chambered in .223. I shoot mostly jacketed bullets in them but, if small game is on the menu, carry some cast loads...

    If you have a bullet that fits the throat/groove diameter then a flat base is best as the HB isn't needed. As previously mentioned the HB on the Lee bullet has a skirt way to thick to obturate at low Carbine level loads. The Army Ordnance people...

    +1 on that. I use redding profile crimp dies on anything larger than a 44 mag. With one exception for the 44 mag, anything that's full magnum to be fired in my 329pd. Scandium frames with full loads are very good at pulling bullets. Outside of...
