    This guy just likes to have fun, and the recoil doesn't seem to bother him either ;-) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nqw_SrL62fk

    I've worked on a LOT of REMINGTONs over the years but this is a new one on me. I was sure I knew how the extractor on the 722 rivetless extractor kept from turning inside the bolt recess. I thought there was supposed to be a couple of "bumps" (for...

    Well, if I had wanted advice on how to repair this problem I would have posted in the GUNSMITH forum, therefore I felt no need to describe the problem here. For those of you who can't read or understand what you read, I posted my DISSATISFACTION...

    Real simple fix for that DON'T READ THE POST! In regard to the problem, here is the email I sent to them to which I DID NOT receive a response and that is why I phoned them: This rifle is a 308 WIN. I purchased it new and it has always had...

    For those wondering about push button rifling, Bob Hart thought it worked fine and Hart barrels have a very good reputation for accuracy.

    Yes parts are hard to find for the Swiss beauties. Rock Solid has some neat after market parts for them like 10 round magazine, new firing pin, and mainspring.

    An ounce will last a lifetime if you don't spill it. I now use Amsoil Saber 2 stroke oil, works just the same.

    So you have the powder measure and all the dies mounted in the turret and twist the turret for each stroke of the lever? Swapping the turrets makes a great deal of sense, since this is what I do with my DL-366 shotshell loader. Also I can see a...

    All I had was 15 rds of the Nazi stuff and that was a long time ago, but yes it had a thump to it. Somebody with some Nazi ammo left could pull one down and weigh the powder charge, I just used an online recoil calculator. I did find it interesting...

    Battis if you look at post 31 you'll see I used the load I shoot of 4064, I only had 15 rounds of the Nazi ammo and shot it up years ago, but I did chrono 5 rounds of it. 9-27-09 2265-2330-2215-2339-2275, 2285 FPS average, if you corrected that...

    Are you folks saying that the fellows using 800X in shotgun loading are weighing each charge? If it meters as poorly as seems to be indicated by the posts here, I'm very surprised it is still produced since the margin for error, pressure wise, with...

    I just recently started drawing down .338 Hot core 200 gr to load in the 8x56R, 46 grs IMR 4064 gives almost identical velocity as the Nazi ammo, but with an extreme spread of 1/4 that of the surplus ammo. Five of the surp gives 2285 fps with ES...

    I used WSF for similar velocity and accuracy in the 30/06 with 200 gr cast. I still use SR4756 for RB loads in 12 ga, although I haven't shot or loaded any in a few years. Alcan AL5 was similar also but always left unburnt flakes, and good luck...
