    Brass from a .380 could be used to make .401 bullets. since they start out real close to .375 diameter bringing them up almost .020 in diameter would be the first step. But 9mm @.394 diameter, is so much easier to get, just cant see my self doing...

    Seeing the impact of misses is great feed back. Good on you for taking the effort of making your range fun and useful.

    You could size bullets down to what?, .219? after making them.224. But it is an extra step over just making them .219 I the first place. If making .224 bullets is also in your future, it seems like a pretty good plan to avoid buying two sets...

    :-) HA! Yes it does. This was the evening of the day I'd picked it up and had it all apart cleaning and checking it out. Wanted to get some pics, but wasn't ready to put it all back together yet. ...............Buckshot

    ..............Picked up the Winchester M67A at a local indoor range for $225. It's in at least VG condition with a mirror bore. According to details, it was built in 1936. It has 2 common hiccups. It was D&T'd for a sidesaddle scope mount at some...

    9.3x62Al and I had a great time (as usual). Heck, instead of just having a good time I actually made a bit of an effort and managed to win the 100 yard group competition :-) If I'd do more shooting and less time blabbing and looking at everyone...

    Well if I was doing it, I would take piece of 2X4 lumber and cut a hole in it with a hole saw as close as possible to the diameter of your cylinder. Then cut across the hole with the grain, a rip cut. This piece of wood will allow you to grip the...

    You could purchase a .373 chucking reamer for about 25 bucks. If it was my pistol, I would chuck the reamer and work it down each hole of the cylinder by hand. The existing holes would be good guides, don't force it, and don't sweat a few...
