    Is that HB pin removable from the Cramer sliders? If so then a piece of round bar would likely replace it with minimal machining... or get Eric to send you a flat topped blank like Miha does. Then you can cast a real solid. I'd try filling the...

    Dimensionally, the exterior specs are pretty close. It is no state secret that the 30 Carbine was derived from the 32/20 HV. The cases differ structurally as described by Oupost75 above. One of the "draws" to using 32/20 brass in the 30...

    We have or had several Glock pistols at our house--9mm, 40 S&W, 10mm, and 45 ACP. All are/were box-stock other than a couple with 1.5 kg trigger bars. They have been utterly and unfailingly reliable, and accurate enough for their purpose, which is...

    I also had problems with gas leakage and the gun got really dirty after only 30-40 rounds in my Browning Hi-Power. I upped the powder charge of American Select carefully and found the sweet spot where every round would chamber and whalla no more...

    mega...., waksupi has a point about not removing nipples. I.e, that way they can't be lost, cross-threaded or stripped. However, I have several cap lock rifles + 1 cap & ball revolver and I always remove the nipples when cleaning them. Btw, I...

    Is it a 20" barrel? If so and with a recoil controlling stock it is a Katadin. I have one in 45-70 and your caliber. Haven't shot the 50 much, took the scope off it when it gave me my first ever scope cut. Yes, it is essentially a short range...

    I'm with oldred. As boolit casters we do not "smelt" though many here use that term when melting their "raw" lead in the form of wheelweights, range scrap or whatever. I have worked in and around the Teck Metals (formerly Cominco) lead smelter...

    Char Gar I'd do it the other way around. Assuming I have the dies, start large and see if it chambers, then step down until it does.

    Cheapest and easiest way is to shoot the right diameter bullet, proper alloy hardness, good lube. Then you don't have leading to deal with.

    I'm not laughing - I shoot my 44-40's with BP and cast lead for the same reason - even though the guns are replicas!

    Not a simple subject - self awareness is a necessary underpinning of Christ awareness. The opposite is those who are oblivious to everything - and we all know some of them. Self obsession, or narcissism - is the more common sinful escape from...

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!
