    I'm dealing with this very issue with a new AR10 upper in 6.5 creedmoor. My other reloads for my Mauser 98 chambered in that same caliber has no problem loading the cartridges but the new rifle is a no-go with the older reloads while new cartridges...

    I bought some Winchester small rifle primers in the wooden tray in the 1970s. Was told folks used them to substitute for small pistol primers in WWII. I have used most of them and have yet to have any not fire. Was told on this forum that there...

    We've got a lot of griz and black bear activity here, too. Friend wants me to go shoot one out of his apple trees. Problem is, they only come at night, and I don't need the hassle of accidentally killing a griz.

    If the finish is completely cured, you will leave no steel wool particles in the finish. I finished a lot of very expensive exhibition grade stocks with steel wool where such a blemish would be disaster. Never a problem.

    I use some Bullplate Lube on the mold. Careful application with a Q tip. Keep it out of the cavity. I think synthetic chainsaw 2 cycle oil is the same thing.

    If you didn't start out with well seasoned wood to make a stock, you may as well figure on starting over. An uncured stock will warp, twist, and do all kinds of nasty things if you expect the rifle to group. If you used Truoil too heavily, it...

    lead chucker replied to a thread Swage die reamer in Swaging
    As far as staying .004 under that depends on how good of a job you did on your reamer. I like the three flute reamer. Takes some time to make but worked the best for me. It has to be polished and sharp before heat treating. I found the better the...

    Once you make your die and its a little under sized if you use a lead slug to swage and check for size as you are polishing dont polish up to final size. Stay a little under. What i found is that when you make the actual bullet it will be a little...

    I like them to look a bit funky personally. If you are going to clean leather, saddle soap, followed up with Lexol.

    Advertising in the magazines is not cheap. Probably several thousand a month for a big ad. With the internet, lots cheaper to spread the ads around there.

    I've had Hancocks on my last two trucks. Current set has been on nearly ten years, and are still in great condition. I don't drive all that much though.

    The rosewood definitely will cause respiratory problems in most people. It chokes me up quickly, and the effects last a long time. Rifle builder John King is allergic to walnut, which makes his job a lot harder!

    The 6.5X55 is the only chambering P.O. Ackley never wildcatted. He stated that the cartridge was perfect as is, and has no improvements that could be made.
