    I removed the size die and all other lower parts first. I then kept working the wrench on the back till lube was coming out the sizer die area. I would collect it and work the wrench some more repeating these steps till the pressure nut in the...

    Barrel for what? TC Contender? Or something different? If it is a TC barrel, they were 1:10 twist .308" with a funnel throat that ought to work real well for PP. Most 32-20 chambers, though, have almost no throat in them and it might be tough to get...

    Salvadore, 32-20 is different. It doesn't have a "funnel" throat like 357,41,44, and 45. In fact it doesn't have much throat at all. That's why if you seat a .314" boolit much outside the case it will be hard to close the action and you end up...

    I don't put any NRA or related stickers on my vehicle, or the Montana FWP Sportsman License stickers on my vehicles. You mark yourself as a target for thieves and vandals.

    A few years back a few talented friends as well as my dumb self decided to rebarrel a Mosin into something else, but bigger! What we wound up with and put a name on is "The .416 Russian Express". Robert

    8mm Mauser ammo using jacketed bullets is .323". Using cast without slugging the bore I`d recommend using .323" - .325" boolets.Robert

    Sure wish I could shoot that well! Kind of funny, all the rifles you build for customers and the one you do for yourself that is so different. I know where you are coming from! Nice work. -Nobade

    Since those rifles don't actually have any real throat in them, but just a really long neck in the chamber, I have found far better accuracy by using 44-90 Shiloh brass and sizing it in a 43 Spanish die to set the shoulder back, and trimming to the...

    Well, I can tell you that dry paper is pretty abrasive. It also causes problems like paper rings and not being able to chamber a round. So I lube all my PP boolits that are shot with smokeless powder. As for bore wear, I am kind of experimenting...

    Yep, I hear you. Those muzzleloader throats are pretty tough to measure! However, in this case it is appropriate because of the chamber design. The chamber has no step at the end of the cartridge, just a cone tapering to the bore. So no matter how...

    As far as I know, the only manufacturer of ball point pens left in this country, is a small factory on the Blackfoot Reservation, if it is even still in existence.

    If you see paper rings in the chamber it indicates short cases.

    Probably because you can use .35 gas checks. 9mm, .38, .357, .35 Win, all same same. This could be a real business opportunity for Blammer! Repackage .35 checks, sell them on Ebay as rare 9mm checks! Bet he could get a premium! [smilie=w:
