    Is this the older, pre- K-38 style revolver? Thin tapered barrel with tall target sights? I have both, and the early ones do shoot very well, but the balance is pretty light on the muzzle end due to the thin barrel. $400 sounds reasonable in...

    Yup, item # and mold # are very different things. We typically use mold number here - thus the confusion. Thanks for clearing it up.

    Remington used a 1/12 rifling in the 25-06 and consequently they have problems with accuracy with boolits over about 117 gr. When I had mine I could shoot 76 gr Sierria Seconds, 100gr Sierria Seconds into less than 3/4" at 100yds. This was an ADL...

    Both Lyman #452460 and the H&G #68 clones shoot really well for me in a whole lot of 45 ACP self-loaders. In the Glock 21, the #68 feeds with a slight ka-chunk as the slide closes--so there is a slight hang-up or hitch somewhere. But they feed...

    No--you are not. In such situations, I spend a bit of cash and buy jacketed bullets for the marathon shooting sessions. The J-words DO have their place from time to time.

    Grow lights cost a ton of money to run. Illicit MJ grow sites usually "jumper" the power supply from the providing utility--steal power, IOW--and this is their ultimate undoing, because if you think a utility is going to turn its back on $100,000...

    The nipple should be removed no more than once a year for inspection and relubrication. Repeatedly removing it wears the threads, and will eventually cause dangerous failure. Plain old luke warm water is all you need to clean with. Hot water...

    The barrel lock up means barrel switching is not as easy as reciiever lock up, but with a couple of boxes of jacketed bullets to run it in and running it on cast, combined with the fact that I am 70, I can't see me wearing it out.

    Wayne Smith replied to a thread Castor Oil in Cast Boolits
    Not a problem. It is the castor bean that the poision is derived from. The oil is not dangerous. Airplane engines in WWI used castor oil because of it's heat tolerance and it's tendency to move toward heat rather than away from it. Engines were...

    Fill a case with water (spent primer in place) and then see what the weight of the water is. The easiest method is probably to weigh the dry case and then weigh the same case filled with water. The difference is the weight of water, in grains, if...

    I am just happy that I can still shoot and own guns in this Worker's Paradise. I do not give a flip about dirty guns or smoke (You gotta be kidding me.....), that is what Hoppe's #9 was designed to address. I guess I am "out of touch" as well....

    Where did you get your mold? Someone gave you a mold for the 6.5 Arisaka, not the 7.7. If the mold number starts with a 266 it is a .266 diameter boolit - your rifle barrel has a groove diameter of something like .314. No way that boolit is gonna...

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.
John Taylor - "African Rifles and Cartridges"

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