    Have you tried jacketed bullets? What are the results with them? What is your bore size? Some 9mm need .359 boolits. You may not be neck sizing the brass large enough and the cast boolit is being resized during seating. Factory dies many times...

    The off center hit is nothing to worry about. I have seen far worse on 1911 pistols where the barrel has been fit. The swipe mark is a little more concerning. It could be the breechface face where the firing pin protrudes or it could have been...

    I think it is some type of insect on the lense. The lense can not focus so it appears as round .Do you leave an outside light on while you are away?

    Pressures are determined by electronic measuring devices. They can be referred to as transducers, elastometers or plastometers. Barrel steels actually stretch when a round is fired and then returns to it original size. The amount the material...

    wv109323 replied to a thread Bad Knees in Our Town
    A meniscus tear is repairable with orthroscopic surgery. Cortisone may help but it is temporary. Most times 3 shots is all a doctor will give you. If the cartridge is gone then a knee joint replacement will be needed. Cortisone will relieve the...

    The bottom weight may be coated steel. I can not tell from the picture. You can use a magnet or side cutters to tell. The weight will be slightly magnetic due to the heavy plastic coating. Or you can use the side cutters and cut on the very end of...

    The bullet company asked niosh to participate in the study. Another thing not mentioned was the length of exposure. I assume long term employees. The question becomes what will lead levels be after precautionary and mandatory corrective actions are...

    People do not realize how little time they save or make up when in traffic. Driving at a constant pace is far better than cutting someone off and making them hit their brakes.

    I think the lead alloy is fine. Swagged bullets are nearly pure lead. Of course the bullet has to fit the bore. One problem you may run into is getting a well cast boolit with pure lead. You may need to add tin to get the best boolits out of the...

    It might well be someone from Ruger was in on the thief. After all I doubt that the thieves wanted Single sixes or Blackhawks. Even if they had knowledge they were guns how would they know what type of guns. Snide remark-Why would anyone want a...

    The answer lies within your ability to accurately place a shot and the load you are using. With factory ammo I say 50 yards is about right. The 45 Colt can be uploaded in a strong modern action. The .357 Mag. with WW296 powder and a 125 gn. bullet...

    I think $500 was well over what I would pay. I looked a model 15 that was 95-97%. The marked price was $469 and the guy said he would deal with me on that price. I just was not interested in a 4 inch barrel. Last year I bought a 686 no dash that I...

    Hornady also makes a lube in a small bottle. I use it with a case lube pad. It costs 3 to 5 bucks and is the bestime case lube I have found.
