    A while back, myself and some others from this forum went on a binge of enlarging the small pockets to large pockets on .454 brass. While the results were good, the amount of work and time involved was not worth it. By the way, cast boolits and...

    starmac replied to a thread reamer questions? in Our Town
    We must be talking about 2 different animals. The ones I use have a long taper on them, and as far as I know are for hogging out a hole, must faster than a drill bit or for when two holes doesn't exactly match.

    starmac replied to a thread reamer questions? in Our Town
    Good question for someone with more reamer experience with reamers than I. I can sharpen drill bits, so the larger ones last a good while, not sure if reamers can be sharpened. I can see sharpening them on the taper, but seems like much sharpening...

    If I was going to drill the hole to .015 or less, why wouldn't I just drill them the size I need and do away with the reamers?

    Doug guy every frame shop I have ever known started out with a 1/4 or 3/8 drill bit then switched to a reamer. Part of what I have been doing is just that, except I removed the old 5th wheel mount, so most of the holes are were already in the frame,...

    Before the Hornady crimp on gas checks were marketed, Lyman was the major supplier of checks. The Lyman checks were designed to "fall off" in flight, but that didn't always happen. You would assume the boolits would be inaccurate because of that,...

About Arctic Blues

Basic Information


"The rifle is a weapon. Let there be no mistake about that. It is a tool of power, and thus dependent completely upon the moral stature of its user. It is equally useful in securing meat for the table, destroying group enemies on the battlefield, and resisting tyranny. In fact, it is the only means of resisting tyranny, since a citizenry armed with rifles simply cannot be tyrannized."

óJeff Cooper, The Art of the Rifle
