    I cast cores in a Corbin core mold at 0.218" I then size/uniform my cores in a Corbin Core Swage Die at ~ 0.225 (Fits nicely in the thicker walled 5/16 Copper Tubing Jackets).

    Big Jake; there will be some dependency on your specific 5/16 copper tubing Jacket Making Dies. (i.e. Corbin, RCE, BTSniper, etc..). Also; how you cut your tubing (Mini-Chop Saw, Tubing Cutter, or) can have impact on length of tubing before shaping...

    MUSTANG replied to a thread Deck finish? in Our Town
    My observation is that Trex and other similar products do not do well if placed on 24" centers. In the heat it sags, and gives under weight. I would recommend that it only be placed on 16" centers.

    Treated lumber often drips water for several weeks to months after one picks it up from the Big Box Lumber stores. If you can feel the end and it seems wet - to is. After 3-6 weeks installed it should have assumed ambient % humidity.

    He had some other stuff I didn't take, yet... .38-55, some .32 S&W short, and some .25 Remington, nothing I could ever use but maybe trade fodder down the line. The .256 Newton was really intriguing, probably 100 year old ammo, wish the box...
