    I am pretty sure you meant 60RPM, which is one revolution per second.

    Oldest son in college just tapped me to cover an auto repair bill of his out of state. I'm going to have to kiss my opportunity away at this time.

    Full-time BEAST MODE. Good to read that all went well. Now that you have some empty brass, give your hand a break--find some 240 grain SWCs--and load them ahead of 8.5-9.0 grains of Unique (or 9.5-10.0 grains of Herco). These should give...

    I have never owned an AK, AR or Ruger ranch rifle. Just did a little price checking and I remember why....lol OUCH! Never really wanted one, well maybe the Ruger Ranch. Or an M1 Garand........ Destined to live the life of a beer budget it appears.

    You are absolutely correct in that statement. But sadly, much like in my youth there were women I was with I'll own up to, and those I won't! Murphy

    Did you do the work yourself or do you have a local gunsmith you can recommend? I'm considering rebarrelling one of my Enfield #4s to either a copy of the Aussie's 22-303 or a 6.5-303 (The 6.5 Dutch Mannlicher is basically a 6.5-303)

    I've been shooting for a lot of years and a lot of calibers. First let me say the U.S. major brands aren't the same brass cases they were way back. For that matter some of them don't even make their own brass. Okay I've never liked Remington...

    You may find differently, but the shallow V and bead aren't all that precise, nearly impossible to hold windage repeatedly. I spent the money on a set for a Freedom Arms. You will notice pretty much all of the target pistols you see have square...

    Yes, I'll be curious as to what Pedersoli says. Might be easier to paper patch a Lyman Foster up to bore diameter from 0.705". Different thickness of paper or more or less wraps would do it for both bores. While I haven't tried the Federal...

    I found the guy I was thinking of. JAPLMG is the forum member who owns many Arisakas and a couple of Jap machineguns. He's still on the forum so he may have missed your post.

    As I stated about more and more newer 38 Super cases are rimless like the 9mm's.

    Back in the early days when Tasco's were made in Japan, for the money, they were tough to beat!!! The new ones are kind of junky. Also in the early days Tasco has a scope mount with rings called the World Class scope mount and it's second to...

    I don't have any 9x23 cases, but I'm sure you know that both the 9mm Luger and 9x23 have a fatter web area then a Super. the Super actually IS a straight case. When I made the 9x23 barrel for my Tokarev I used the 9x23 reamer and shoot only 38...

    Most the 38 Super brass you buy today is the rimless stuff. Starline calls it Comp. I've also bought a lot of once fired 38 Super cases and the mixed brands are Aguila, AA, Sig, Jag, Federal, S&B, and another one that has some A's in the stamp. None...

    Just google "Tasco Scope Repair." Plenty of options, but not necessarily the best ones re warranty or cost.

    My problem with Unique is less accuracy - several of my pistol powder measures are adequately accurate, but bridging. Unique has a tendency to bridge in every measure I have, and thus unpredictably you have light and heavy loads. I found this out...

    If the original boolits weighed 405gr then your alloy is OK. The question of weight may be temp. but I would question that much variability. Did you add anything to the melt other than the boolits you bought? Lighter weight means a greater amount...

    Well, again, I am surprised there is so much difference in bore diameters. I would figure the bores would be reamed to final diameter which should put them withing a thou or two of each other. Even if the barrels are made from drawn tubing the...

    I have kept a Model 15 around for years now. It's just down right hard to to beat a 38 Special in a K frame with a 4" barrel and adjustable sights. Anything from 105 grain plinking loads, all the way up to 170 grain Keith boolits. My last find...

    I'm sure you know you should use a 9mm/38super slide for them right? I've done all these years ago. Also you will have to change your 45acp ejector and the 9mm/38super also have a differenc slide stop. I've also done a 9x23 on Tokarev.

    Cap'n Morgan has hit on something there! My biggest problem is air bubbles and shrinkage with the hot melt glue. Using an old press or sizer as a piston pump should provide enough "oomph" to squirt melted glue (or plastic) into a form, though it...

Signature


The solid soft lead bullet is undoubtably the best and most satisfactory expanding bullet that has ever been designed. It invariably mushrooms perfectly, and never breaks up. With the metal base that is essential for velocities of 2000 f.s. and upwards to protect the naked base, these metal-based soft lead bullets are splendid.

Forget everything you know about loading jacketed bullets. This is a whole new ball game!
