    The 64 Maynard is closest to 20 gauge. I measured the 64 Maynard case I have and the solid head portion is .218 deep including the rim. I measured a Magtech 24 gauge case and the solid portion of the head measured .105 deep including the rim. I...

    Wonderful story! Fortunately the same thing does happen in other areas. Good people are just that and when a friend is in need they respond. We had a house/garage fire in 2015 many friends came to see how they could help. I didn't keep track but...

    I have 1914? vintage 1895 in 405 Win and I do shoot it some with both cast and jacketed. It looks like Hornady has dropped production of the brass and the bullet that they made. So, if you have the rifle or are planning on getting one and don't...

    elk hunter replied to a thread Building a Garage in Our Town
    I concur with the extra height ceiling and garage door so you can get a truck inside plus add enough extra room in front of the vehicle so that when you are parked you can easily walk around it. I originally wanted to go 32' deep but the wife didn't...

    Maynard made interchangeable shotgun barrels for some of their rifles one of which they called the 64 Maynard and it is very nearly the same as a 20 gauge. I wonder if that is what you have.

    I saw one years ago in 44 magnum. I don't remember if it was the rimmed or auto-mag version. It didn't have the gas port or piston you pumped it like a shotgun. I didn't get the chance to fire it so I have no idea how well it worked.

    We can only hope it will rain soon to help put out the forest fires. Several small towns have been obliterated and at least two people have died. We have fires every summer but this is the worst I can remember. Where I live the fires haven't...

    I had a 95 in 30-06 that had an original Lyman 21 on it and the fit and finish was very good. The copy I received from Providence wasn't as well made or finished. Now it is possible that I had the one and only well made/finished original and the one...

    I bought a Providence copy of the Lyman 21 to replace the original that some genius replaced with a set of cheap express sights on my original 95 in 405. I wasn't favorably impressed with the Providence copy. The actual peep portion that you adjust...

    I went looking for the mould in my Lee stuff and didn't find it. Turns out it's not a Lee but an iron mould by an unknown maker that uses its own special handles. For whatever reason I had listed it in my shooting notes as a Lee. It looks to be...
