    Starline anneals the same as every other manufacturer with the exception of some of the straight walled original blackpowder cartridges that are often loaded to well above SAAMI specs. Starline recommends that the user anneal for BP usage to...

    As to coarseness of the finish that is a function of glass bead size, distance to work and the pressure used. Vapor blasting and glass bead blasting can and do produce the same finishes. Vapor blasting has several advantages in a production...

    Since the burn rates of these powders are relatively close, both are ball powder and the amount mixed is very small it really is more of a comfort and knowledge concern than a safety concern. If you are competent enough to purchase and use surplus...

    Most firearms using stainless use a 416/420 or 630 (17-4) stainless steel. It will be magnetic. Non-magnetic stainless steel is far more corrosion resistant but it generally not heat-treatable. As such they are too soft for most firearms...

    Rumor has it that is how Hornady gets a velocity increase with it Super Performance powder. On a side note I was giving 8K of small rifle primers that had be under water for three day. After they dried I would get a couple of failure to fire per...

    Hodgdon got it's start selling GI surplus 4895. This was not canister grain powder. I have read a lot of mixing was done to get the proper burning rates for the 4895 and other powder. Mixed powders are not new nor are they dangerous when done...

    Per Federal law felons can own muzzleloading rifles and pre-1899 cartridge firearms. That is a large part of why Johnny Cash was into 1873 Colts in a big way. Individual States may have additional restrictions and definitions as to what a felon...

    Just touching the lands is rarely the most accurate unless you are soft seating. Heavy jamming the bullets can be very accurate. I have one rifle that has a unreal high round count that still holds 3/8 MOA at 300 yards. As to the bullet jump...

    On a side note the 6mm Remington/244 failed since the 12 twist would not stabilize the 100 grain bullet like the 243 Win. Your 14 twist in a lower velocity cartridge probably will be less successful. ...

    Originally the 6mm Remington BR was designed a a benchrest cartridge specifically for 60 grain bullets. Later people learned the it's long range potential and started using the 100 to 117 grain bullets for both 600 and 1,000 yard. Today the Dasher...

    Blackhorn 209 and PC bullets should work if it's an inline. BP and most of the subs will need lube to keep the fouling soft.
