    MUSTANG replied to a thread WTB .30-40 Brass in Swappin & Sellin
    Yes; this is a solution I have used several times. There are two potential issues with this (a) .303 British can be as difficult to find at times as is 30-40 Krag Brass. (b) The neck of a resized/fireformed .303 Brass case to 30-40 will be...

    MUSTANG replied to a thread 2020 Census in Our Town
    The census takers (and detailed questionnaires) are much like a Lawyer Deposition or Inquisition in a trial. Lots of innocuous questions that individually mean nothing; but threaded together are used to paint the DESIRED picture; and then to be used...

    To fit my M16/AR rod so it will take commercial cleaning brushes. I understand the GI rods are 8-36 threads and the commercial pieces are 8-32. So, adapter would be 8-36 male to 8-32 female. Brownells has them for around $8, but shipping is $15!...

    MUSTANG replied to a thread 50 bmg primers in Swaging
    Try joining some of the 50BMG forums and posting on them for spent primers. I probably have 50 or so spent BMG primers; but they are out in the "Casting Shed" and the snow still has not melted away to get into it. If you do not find some - drop...

    Mass of bullet coupled with Velocity, and weight of the Rifle determines recoil. Felt recoil will be dependent on weight of rifle package (scope & Rifle), the style of stock - some straight back into shoulder will have more felt recoil than some...

    red hawk0 Reloading Belted Magnums is a unique challenge unto itself. I currently have (and have only had 1) a .300 WInMag. Found that after sizing brass shot in my rifle, only about 60% would chamber after resizing and reloading. Had to get a...

    Not bad. In my younger days in the 1970's carried a S&W Model 36 (.38 Special) with Tyler T-Grips a lot. We would put 12 Ga. expended shotgun hulls on the target frames at 25 yards. Most of the time I could get 4 out of 5. Unfortunately the eyes...

    In my case, the slight difference I see in measuring BHN (Lee BHN Tester) from cast boolits of the same lot are never more than 2-3BHN are attributable to "Non_Calibrated Eyeball". Even with my plastic soda pop bottle holder for the magnifying...

    I completed ours about two weeks ago on line. The on line Census form is more "Constitutionally Compliant" than in the last two decades, but still has areas that puts a burr under my saddle. Article I Section 2. The House of...

    This may explain why Froogal is not having success "Water Hardening" his boolits. Water Quenching boolits requires the alloy have antimony in the mix. Roto-Metals web site states that 1 to 16 alloy is 94% lead and 6 % tin. No Antimony. So he...

    I use any of my 3 derimming dies with .17 and .22 WMR with no problems on either my Corbin CSP-1 Press or my Pnuematic Press I bought to do most of my derimming operations. A thought for you. If you are using a "Standard Press" (as compare to...

    You can stir sulfur into your contaminated alloy to remove zinc. Do so out doors and have a long handled stiring device. Put in a 1/4 teaspoon stir from arms length; sulfur fumes are potentially toxic and can make your nauseous if breathed in. Do...
