    How does it shoot with factory ammo and handloaded jacketed bullets? You have to start with a baseline and sometimes that's it.

    I use a Wheeler gunsmithing vise for guns, and a 4" Harbor Freight for heavy work.

    Very true but you can't use the normally much cheaper to purchase used rifle action to do a pistol since it becomes a short barrel rifle in the eyes of the ATF. It was a reply to

    100% machining your own action is legal, however, using a rifle action to do a handgun is not unless you get a SBR stamp.

    If I were to trust any of my firearms with exotic ammunition, I would not tell anyone. I would never load more than I wanted to shoot the next day and I sure wouldn't tell the internet.

    You wouldn't be alone! Although some of the targets are so small, a trade gun is really put to task. Olives at 25 yards, anyone? Plus shooting through the loops on a pretzel without breaking them!

    That would quadruple the price and eliminate 98% of the properties. In most western states an individual water well is legal for home use. It is illegal to use that for large scale irrigation and for stock water on a large scale.

    I have a 2013 edition of Ruger Blackhawk in 30 Carbine. Its internal dimensions are about as perfect as can be--throats are .3085", grooves are .308" right on the dot. Cast bullets sized at .309" shoot very well.

    Running the long bullets in the .260 for magazine feeding requires the bullet be seated in the donut area of the neck. This creates issues since most competitors don't want to inside neck ream. They much prefer to outside neck turn. The 6.5...

    I would recommend putting a ramrod down the bore, and comparing on the outside to see how much breech plug you have. The breech plug should have as much length as the bore diameter.

I don't paint bullets. I like Black Rifle Coffee. Sacred cows are always fair game. California is to the United States what Syria is to Russia and North Korea is to China/South Korea/Japan--a Hermit Kingdom detached from the real world and led by delusional maniacs, an economic and social basket case sustained by "foreign" aid so as to not lose military bases.
