    Value can run from $50 to $500 depending on how bad someone wants it. I gave $100 for the last one I bought a few months back in 22LR. It has an extractor problem which was easy to repair. My #4 in 32 caliber got a liner and is now chambered for 32...

    Green Mountain has a couple 44 cal. barrels for rifle. I have a few on the shelf, one is octagon the right size for a 92 Winchester and would work for a 94 or 336 Marlin. A chamber bulge is a bit scary, means there was way to much pressure. I have...

    I don't believe you will get the performance out of the Vegetable based waxes as you will with Beeswax base. Same goes for Paraffin or petrol based waxes as compared to beeswax..There are some combinations that will work though, less the long...

    I have a customer that bought one and I'm making another barrel for it so he can switch calibers. I decided to get one for myself and ended up with two to get the dealer price. While the action looks good I'm not sold on a few things. The hammer can...

    Here is a pic of my process for reducing 223rem down to 30 cal. The process is the same with the 9mm case. The process is a little slow and labor intensive but the results are perfect and repeatable. I don't do more then about .025 in reduction at a...

    BT Sniper replied to a thread lubing cases in Swaging
    If one uses lanolin for deriming it is best to be sure it is all removed from the brass before tumbling in media. I used to use mineral spirits but no longer enjoy the smell. I have heard others here report that woolite fabric cleaner works well to...

    BT Sniper replied to a thread lubing cases in Swaging
    Before I had a tumbler I would coat the inside of a Ziploc bag with lube then add clean brass and kneed with hands to distribute lube. This worked well too. Not really any wrong way to apply lube, just make sure you use enough and that it is all...

    BT Sniper replied to a thread lubing cases in Swaging
    Annealing after deriming. Use whatever lube you wish for deriming. Only use quality swage lube for core seat and point form swaging. I now like to use RCBS case lube II for deriming only because it is so easy to rinse clean with only water....

    I am glad this thread came up and your talking about neck tension. This is the most under rated or ignored step in reloading cast bullets, this is the #1 problem when reloading 9mm, 40, 10 and sometimes 45 acp. I just wish expander buttons were...

    I think a chamber cast will let you know if there is a possible problem. When the 375 Win. came out some of the reamer companies were selling 38-55 chamber reamers with 375 Win. marking. I have two 38-55 reamers and one 375 Win. My 375 is defiantly...

    If you do decide to list them here, do it only in the Swappin' & Sellin' section of the forum, as sales and offers to buy aren't allowed anywhere else. Hope this helps. Fred

    Been there, done that, with terrible accuracy. I had 1,000 of the sabots and finally ended up giving them away years ago to end my frustration at trying to hit something with them. Hope this helps. Fred

    BT Sniper replied to a thread VLD Point Forming Die in Swaging
    Sounds like you are doing everything correct. I would have to suspect the die then..... try cleaning bullet cavity with clean cotton Q-tip? Any noticeable scratches? or imperfections in the surface finish?

    What caliber? I haven't found VLD dies to be any more trouble then any other point form die in my experience. Actually found a longer nose with less barring surface to the bullet should eject easier, but........ could be other reasons or issues...

    I know dozens of SASS shooters who use Marlins, so that market is still viable. The recent scarcity of Marlin rifles has driven the prices up, so I'm betting it will sell pretty quickly at the gun show. I know several people who are looking for...

    Marlins don't short stroke like Winchester 73's and 66's do. As far as I know, there's only one person doing short strokes on Marlins, and it's quite expensive, so in most likelihood, it's stock. I paid $500 for my 1894 CB Carbine about 5 years...
