    M-Tecs replied to a thread 1/2" at what range in Rimfire Area
    When scoring normal targets if the bullet touches the line you get the higher value. Per the OP all shots must be inside the 1/2" circle. The group can not touch the line. Group has to be less than .278" center to center if it is perfectly...

    I wish. Strange thing is most people get strangely quiet will they have to back it up with money. I have won three $100 bets on 1,000 yard shots or should I say lack of shots.

    M-Tecs replied to a thread 1/2" at what range in Rimfire Area
    To meet the OP's criteria each and ever shot has to be within plus or minus 1/8" of the absolute dead center for both POI and group size. Even at 25 yards with the best ammo and equipment (which I have) I don't believe I would claim I can do it...

    $50.00 and all of that time to repair/replace a non essential firing pin block costing perhaps $1.00. Someone is taking serious advantage.

    It's a Lee Challenger press. If you ever break a toggle, or you just want to upgrade, you can swap the old diecast ones for the new steel ones for less than $20.00. Sent from my VS880 using Tapatalk

    If money was no object, and I didn't lust after the Bonanza/Forster CoAx, Redding 700 UltraMag, CH4D Champion, and the big Bair/Pacific Super-O presses, I'd get a Lee Classic Cast over the other O-frames, but that's ONLY because I like the...

    Since it started life as a 32-40 and was rebored I am assuming is an original?? If so dates of manufacture become somewhat important. Winchester started using stronger steels in the barrels around 1894 for the 94's and the 95's. Not sure when...

    megasupermagnum is spot on. Case volume will determine pressure. Some slow powders do odd things with too low of pressure. Powders like Unique work very well with the same charge in the 45 Colt and the 45/70 so loads like these would be fine for...

    No, not in the casting business but between work, Air National Guard, competitive shooting schedule and family when I would cast it would be for 2 or 3 days for 12 to 16 hours a day.

    It does not take much lanolin to make a lube tacky enough to stick to the bullets well. I use 2-3 shot glass measures full to ten pounds of lube. More does not hurt as quantities of any of the components is not critical.

    At some higher end steak houses you get dry aged beef that has been aged 240 days. Is it tender, yes, but I don't care for the flavor. For beef 21 days to 90 days is were I like the flavor. Passed 120 days not so much. Aging any meat does effect...
