    The parent case of .357 herret is 30-30. But there has been some .223 necked up to .357. Search for .357 maximum rimless.

    I have been thinking 44X1.8 for quite a while. Easy making swaged bullets from40 S&W cases. After looking for a barrel maker to make a barrel at reasonable cost and not being able to find one, I submitted and ordered a 45 raptor barrel. Still...

    clodhopper replied to a thread Head to head $299 pcp in AirGuns
    I watched the video too, both rifles appear good, the length of the urban appeals to me, the shot count of the gauntlet appeals to me. The salesmen who made the video claim the triggers are good, but that information comes from salesmen. After...

    D-RIG's hollow base is what I described as skirted, My groups were fired off a wood bench, with Harris bipod, in failing light and rising breeze. Less than great bench rest equipment.

    clodhopper replied to a thread Jumped Into 5.7-308 in Swaging
    Thumpers! I was expecting pointy bullets, but those 178s look great for stopping game. The 160s sure will put the stop on game, but I wonder if they will feed from a magazine OK.

    Speed reading! But I would look closely at the mount before sending the scope back.

    Some air rifles have barrel droop, 20 or 30 MOA mounts help get the scope pointing at the impact zone. My 25 cal marauder has a 20 moa base.

    These are small hollow point with a skirt. Rifle was filled to 2700 psi before the first group was fired. They were easier to chamber than the flat base pellets, but still more difficult to chamber than the JSB's. First group 673 AV 14.1 ES 5.4...

    These two groups of eight were fired with a starting pressure of 2700 psi The pellets are D-Rig's 32.80 grain large hollow point flat base. The point of impact was about 3 mils lower than the 25 grain JSB pellets fired in the first group. First...

    Last summer Dale sent me some pellets to test. My rifle is an unmodified Benjamin Marauder PCP, with Athlon, Talos BTR 4-14x44 scope mounted. When the pellets arrived, the air quality here was so bad due to forest fires, I was to much of a weenie...

    That PTG is really a pretty good deal with a trigger and rail.

    Good looking bullets Brian. One question about the process, Step 3, seated core directly from mold to jacket. Does mean you put a hot core in the jacket? or just that you skipped the core swage step? Thanks.

    Consensus of opinion is that Ingraham watches of the day were not an authorized military grade watch. I'm thinking they might have intended to airdrop these to resistance fighters. A cheap common watch would not arouse suspicion and would be better...

    That is a neat little air gun, after purchasing a Benjamin wildfire last summer for a nice price, my next air gun purchase will focus on quality. I still like the air arms T200, CMP sporter rifle, at 525 bucks plus another 130 for a magazine kit...

    No real information on the sealed cans of watches, but I think three matching watches would be useful for timing operations by three different groups in various locations. Generals are pretty knowledgeable about the last war. In world war I, poor...

    The TX200 almost needs it's own thread. Many inexpensive rifles have little compromises that come from keeping the manufacturing price low. #1 a poor trigger. after that in no particular order, bedding, sights, durability of stock material, and...
