    I just watched a video the other day where the guy was making black out of different types of carbon. One was graphite. It was the WORST of everything he used. It would not burn at all. He had to take a torch to it to make it burn.

    tomme boy replied to a thread 9mm AR in Military Rifles
    I really don't care about the last round hold open. I shot so many AK's and 10/22's that it does not even bother me. I am hearing of some barrels that are having NO throat. Anyone run into this? I want to run the Lee 120 TC bullet. That seems to...

    It’s the whole housing. The holes are hogged where it’s held into the receiver. It’s in Ruger’s hands now. The gun arrived at their plant yesterday. As far as a timney goes a have about a dozen of them up in my Remington 700’s but wouldn’t spend...

    Okay, so I was on the Lever Gun Performance Studies website, looking at their 30-30 data. The lead in page gives a lot of information about test conditions and such. There's just one thing that seems to be missing. Anybody know what range...

    I’ve been running anywhere from 16:1 pure lead and pewter mix at 7.5 Bh on up in my Ruger 77/44. I’ve been powder coating and gas checking them at a thousands over with no leading. I’ve tried ac COWW, 50/50, and 80/20. I have expansion pictures on...

    Larry Gibson replied to a thread Alloy for 44 Mag in Cast Boolits
    I suggest getting some tin (either ordering pure tin or find some solder or pewter locally). Mix the linotype with lead at 35% lino and 65% lead. Then add 2% tin to that. That should give you a close alloy comparable to old COWWs of yester-year. ...

    AC COWW with 2% pewter added. Powder coated clear, weighed within a one grain variance, sized a thousands over bore, and Hornady gas checked. The farthest out I can seat this boolit is 2.055”. Any longer and it won’t cycle. Played with...

    Im pretty sure I’m having the same problem with some lee 300 gr fn boolits I made 2 years ago. I forced them on with the lee sizer. I casted up a fresh batch yesterday, pc’d them with a thinner coat, and ALL the GCs snapped in place easily with my...

    I’ve sent the rifle to them before for repairs along with a vaquero. Both came back rather quickly. The vaquero went back as soon at it showed up for a second time. Who ever did the polishing job scratched the heck out it. Third time was a charm and...

    Can I age it after I thaw it out before cooking? How long can I leave thawed out venison to age in my fridge before it goes bad? I’m always afraid of aging my deer here because the weather temps always vary. One day is so warm I’m afraid the meat...

    The 44 mag rifle I harvested these deer were about 2 grains under max book loads. I picked this load because it was the most accurate load I tested and shoots sub MOA at 100 yards...the same with my 450 bushmaster. The most accurate groups I’ve been...

    Just depends how tight you do or don’t want your groups. I’m sure when your shooting 50 yards or farther it’s going to make a difference. IMO there’s going to be enough pressure differences at this distance with various case lengths that your...
