    Norma is great brass also. The rep. on Norma is the head is softer so primer pockets loosen sooner. For me in 6mm BR that has been true.

    Starline anneals the same as every other manufacturer with the exception of some of the straight walled original blackpowder cartridges that are often loaded to well above SAAMI specs. Starline recommends that the user anneal for BP usage to...

    As to coarseness of the finish that is a function of glass bead size, distance to work and the pressure used. Vapor blasting and glass bead blasting can and do produce the same finishes. Vapor blasting has several advantages in a production...

    Since the burn rates of these powders are relatively close, both are ball powder and the amount mixed is very small it really is more of a comfort and knowledge concern than a safety concern. If you are competent enough to purchase and use surplus...

    Most firearms using stainless use a 416/420 or 630 (17-4) stainless steel. It will be magnetic. Non-magnetic stainless steel is far more corrosion resistant but it generally not heat-treatable. As such they are too soft for most firearms...

    The rust is in a matte part of the slide and also in the serrations. I have bronze wool but haven't tried it. I'm thinking it may work in the serrations, but would be hesitant to use it in the matte section as I don't want to have a spot in the...

    Hello all, I have a couple of stainless 1911's which are rusting, yep, I know. That's one reason I bought stainless to begin with. I have never used Evaporust but have read good things about it. When used on stainless are there any problems or...

    I think you were writing to me, and I suspect that if it were the only .32 option I had, I might do that, but it's one of many for me, so no need for versatility with the other stuff I've got.

    I've got a custom 10" barrel in 32 long for the contender frame, and several .32 caliber rifles. You won't be disapointed by the fun factor and usefulness as a woodswalking gun.

    If you have a good ball, they don't rotate from a smooth bore. Don't worry about removing the sprue nub. Just have them pointed towards the target. If you have the slightest interior inconsistency such as a void in the ball, they can go off path...

    I'm not fan of shimming scope bases. once you do the two rings are not concentric, and a good chance you will warp or bend the scope. Even when the rings are seemingly concentric I usually lap the rings to assure there is no stress on the scope....

    I wouldn't use dacron as a filler in bottle necked rifle cases with any powder faster than say Alliant 2400, SR4759 speed. I would NEVER use a dacron filler with Traiboss. There was someone on here using dacron with Unique, don't know if he messed...
