    I think it's a boolit weight issue. I have the same problem intermittently with the Gould boolit, but not with the 457125. Remember the Army crimped the 405 boolit to allow more complete powder combustion while not doing this with the 457125. ...

    . +1 The Marlin 1894 makes a better .44 Magnum rifle than a Model 336, and for the same money, I'd rather have the new rifle as opposed to a not particularly collectible used gun. .

    One question is decidedly unclear in this thread. Are you shooting GC boolits vs PB boolits or are you shooting a GC boolit with or without a GC? There is absolutely no need for a GC at these velocities. PB boolits are made/designed to be...

    After all the hype, it was very underwhelming. I'm in the 95% area and it was slightly overcast. I saw on TV what I was missing and was still not impressed. Maybe it's because of my age and experience, but there were other news stories that held...

    Nope, not spent in vain. That is the exact use of those - except some people seem to the shiny silver cases!

    It will be your State law that determines that. Six months seizure free is pretty common in the states for resuming driving. Don't take the chance, grab a ride to camp with a friend, and have someone with you when you are out in the woods. ...

    I kept it because I do shop eBay at times (three things coming currently!). As far as I know CBD ships from their warehouse - I called them once looking for an out of print book. The guy who answered said "I think I saw that a few weeks ago, let...

    The 45-70 cartridge is rated at 28,000 CUP/PSI. CUP and PSI are not normally the same but at 28,000 they converge. This is the only pressure the two terms are interchangeable. Action have not idea of what barrel is screwed into them. ...

    Absolutely. I would never tumble primed cases. Loaded ammo if necessary, not primed cases.

    Rebuilt a Tru-Line Jr. Sourced the top nut, washer, turret spring and 5/16" bearing locally. Filed the notch in the washer. Had one of the modern turrets ordered from eBay multiple years ago, one of the last steel ones he made (now aluminum). ...

    I use a 200gr boolit at about 800fps. Not a huge amount of recoil, not scary to shoot, and quite adequate for use.

    Indeed. I have had times when I wanted to simplify and condense the number of powders I stock. I suppose I still could but being a reloading bench explorer I tend to buy things to test. Then there's the buy what you can find when we have our...

    As with anything mass produced there are variances in raw materials and finished products. Eliminating as many variables as possible produces reloads of a much higher quality. Since it's a one time process I try to make all my brass as consistent...

    Is there a driver that hasn't had to drive looking directly into the full sun? Tinted windshields help, but aren't always enough. It is very uncomfortable but we've all done it. In this instance, we have a choice and time to prepare. Don't be...

    In addition to the above, I have drilled the hole clean and left the drill bit in, as if it were the pin pushed up the shank and past the "cutting area of the drill". Then just cut it off & finished it. Gives a perfect fit every time.

    . I've been playing with guns since well before the post-64's were introduced, and have NEVER seen a Model 94 action (only) for sale - durn near every other part, but never an action. There's most likely 2 reasons why: 1) The receiver is a...

    Well your experience/ experiment pretty much proves that it is a bit unstable across the temperature spectrum. I did the same exact thing with BLC2 in .223 years ago. I had a great safe load that was perfectly accurate in the Spring. Come mid...

    I do the same. I will also scan charge tables. If a powder drops off the table at the beginning or tail end that tells me it may be not quite the right burn rate. I'm looking for a powder that works from the slow speed to the high speed. Less...
