    I have a couple Camillus knives. I started out with a double blade lock back Trapper, that has been my hunting companion for many years. I was able to dress and skin an elk and four deer, and it was still sharp. Knowing myself, I have a tendency...

    If you have trouble getting an earplug to stay in your ear, this may be a way to insert if more effectively. :bigsmyl2:

    waksupi replied to a thread Shipping cost in Our Town
    I will say for USPS, I have shipped around 200 guns through them, with no loss or damage. UPS, on the other hand, managed to break the stocks on two rifles. One appeared to have been run over by a truck.

    As soon as I heard he was shooting a throat burner like a .300 RUM, I would have discounted any firearm opinion from that point. Anyone who thinks a .35 Whelen is not enough gun in hunting, adds to that view that he is a bit foolish.

    There is some kind of coating in these cases so when you anneal them make sure they flash off when you heat them up. I have a small kiln a friend let me borrow. I heat them to around 900 F for 20 minutes. It burns all that stuff off then i run them...

    I use a 50/50 lanolin and caster oil mix. I wipe it on the expander each time i expand the case neck. You will have less case neck splits and case necks collapsing. That's been my experience any way. This is the one i made it works good. It works...

    On the fowler I just completed, I did a faux damascus finish, and just let the color go to a French grey, but still showing the pattern. There is a pilgrim in the club who couldn't believe I wasn't going to brown it. When I told him many original...

    True. That is where lube purging comes into the picture. Less can be more.

    Expand before you anneal you will crush a lot of cases if you anneal first. Use lots of lube. Its fun making things on the lathe. I have my little mini lathe about wore out.

    I made caps with the Tap-a-can. The toy caps being inserted had a rather disconcerting habit of going off while being seated in the caps. Always made me wonder how it would feel if the rifle went off when seating them on the nipple......

    It sounds like a lot of inter related issues. One easy answer, no problem with the half cock. Put on the cap, let down the hammer, bring it back to half cock. IF it's only going to half cock, DO NOT drop the hammer on it until the fix is found....
