    I had a strong feeling that you were using .454s. I’m also assuming that you are having little to no blow back on your cases?

    They have been using ECM since 1993 and to the best of my knowledge they are still using it. I have a bunch of post 93 S&W's. Never had a barrel issue. http://www.benchrest.com/showthread.php?76633-S-amp-W-using-ECM-to-rifle-their-barrels! ...

    Youíre going to love that Marlin CB! I have one that I bought new in 2000. I had it slicked up by a cowboy action gunsmith in Dallas,TX. Iíve never had it fail me with any bullet design in 38 or 357. I havenít tried wadcutters, but have run...

    M-Tecs replied to a thread BP recoil in Muzzleloading.
    Yep for felt recoil it's makes a notable difference. I own a Marlin Guide Gun, a Browning 1886 carbine and a Browning 1886 rifle. All in 45/70. The 86 rifle has a crescent butt plate and it brutal with anything over mild loads. The carbine has a...

    Yes, it's no different than the mass of the powder hitting a muzzle break. For the rocket motors orifice size determines the velocity of the ejectorate http://www.jacobsrocketry.com/rocketry_overview.htm "There is one more component...

    M-Tecs replied to a thread BP recoil in Muzzleloading.
    Pressure doesn't directly create recoil. A theoretical example would be if the bullet was locked in the cartridge. When the cartridge is fired it would just be a pressurized vessel with zero recoil generated. The reaction to the pressurization is...

    It's a Lyman mold from the 1970's. Value seems to be the same as a Lyman. There is a curio factor as you have never used mold with the box. I know of very few mold collector's that want that would want the mold purely for collector value. ...

    That failed intimidation and lack of respect brought back memories of when I started going to gun shows as well. The thing was, I had/have a good memory for faces. I never stopped/stop at their tables again, even with a wad of cash on me. And...

    Yes you are reading to much into it. Winchester 1890 & 1906 pump guns are fine rifles but they were never intended to be competition target rifles. Match chambers and match ammunition have there place and they do have advantages for specific...

    I am not aware of any major weapons system adoption that did not have some teething issues. I sure it was the same with the 1911. GAO report here https://www.gao.gov/assets/220/210461.pdf pages 10,14, 15 and 16 are interesting. "The first...

    The 92 slide failure was a very real issue with standard M882 ball when it was first issued. After the issue first came up we had to track round count and replace slides a 3K. Old slides were returned. Not sure if they did anything else but...

    I own and work on a lot of different pistols. I have been a 1911 fanboy for a very long time and that has not changed. About a year ago I picked up a CZ 75 Tactical Sport Orange. That is an incredible pistol. I liked it so much I picked up a CZ...
