    Could one size a nail gun blank down to fit a 22lr chamber? Without setting it off that is.

    Thanks for taking one for the team! I can't help thinking that a muzzle weight would be the most productive. It would force a node at the muzzle for a start and dampen muzzle movement. Only one way to find out. I've got ten days to get things...

    I was thinking about my early days with my scoped 512. It had a super light and crisp trigger, so light that I would hold my finger next to it and all I would do is twitch my finger to fire it. This allowed me to develop a swing through timing...

    Clamp the muzzle down? Not just rest it? Was this the only part of the gun being supported? Bag under the butt perhaps? My thoughts are running away with me here. I'm thinking of a dog-leg channel iron arrangement that will fit onto the...

    While we're drifting and wishing, I had the idea of a center fire 'air rifle' so to speak. I have a 22lr barrel that is small enough to support the nose section of a 22 cal air rifle pellet. The idea was to shoot rabbits or any pests where a 22lr...

    My cheapo scopes don't have enough adjustment, unfortunately. The better ones are fine. I can still aim and shoot with them so as disappointing as it may be, it's not a train smash. Still, my biggest worry is that I won't be able to shoot with...

    I only use reading glasses for closeup. My vision would be 20-20 in my shooting eye at distance. At muzzle distance not so much, specially when my eyes are tired. I must say, I learned to focus on the target when my eyes were still young. I...

    I just happen to have one. But it's a jacketed bullet shooter, it's a 25-303. I want a cast boolit shooter. There is the 25 hornet and the 25-20 and 25-30 that could fit the bill. Just a thought, what caliber would we get using the 22 mag case...

    I like the idea of a 25 rimfire. I'm sure one could find a use for it. I'm trying to think where the 22lr has failed me. ??? Nope. But I want a 25 rimfire anyway! I wouldn't go with a lengthened 25 ACP because the option for a 25 hornet already...

    I'd frame that tight group. Nice one! :2_high5: You know, this wandering POI thing, I think I might have the same thing. Tomorrow My plan is to shoot fewer shots on more targets so I can see each shot goes and in which order. I've printed out...

    When I wanted a pistol powder for light loads in my Brit, I chose Clays over Unique because of its bulkiness in even though Unique's burn rate was more appropriate. It does limit the velocity to subsonic but then if I want supersonic there is 4227...

    This is a bit odd. Something wrong with the relative positions of ADI powders and not so sure about some of the others. Try this one or ADI powders. Consider that ADI actually make some Hodgdon powders and market them under their own name, they...

    Is it easier to apply? I can't see PC being easy to apply on a 22lr boolit for the reasons mentioned. A small variation isn't so small on an equally small boolit. Regarding the black coating on boolits, I've found that black lead oxide is a...

    I have noticed a very strange smelling powder in one of my ammo's. I think it's Aguila match although it could be Geco match. Then again, it could have been someone else using Wolf.

    Maybe look at the bedding again. My results when I made a change were that the rifle became less sensitive ammo types and brands. The group hardly shifts but the group isn't great either. My sights make it difficult to pin down the cause but I...

    I epoxied a front sight onto my 510 just to be able to test the rifle. I was so careful not to bump it and break it of - I had used cheap epoxy. Then came time to remove it. A tap with a small hammer and drift would do it, right? Hah - I had to...

    I took the 510 to the range today with some Geco Match ammo and some Aguila 40gr solid subsonic ammo that I got in December. Well, the Geco didn't do so well but the Aguila solids did quite well considering the sights. I could tell from aiming...
