    I got this brake last year and tried it out on my 91/30 and while it looks great I just cant get used to it on a factory setup 91/30. Not if I had sporterized it etc maybe it would look good but just cant do it to a pristine rifle. Anyway these...

    Your numbers are kind of rough, but it sounds like adding 3 "nuggets" should bring it up a few percent. I suggest adding a little tin as well, those small .225 boolits are going to need it.

    I hate to let these go but my dream of a 375H&H is still a ways off. Anyway I have 2 boxes of 250gr barnes ttsx bullets and probably some others I wanna trade for some 30 caliber bullets for my 308. Prefer hunting type bullets 150 to 180gr.

    It sounds like your need and use is similar to mine. A cell phone is an emergency device for me. I've been a Tracfone customer for 15 years, when I first signed up, there were no "smart phones", and I had a flip phone. I've now progressed to a smart...

    That's a fairly common problem, and though worrisome, having the gas check below the case shoulder has never been a problem for me.

    I use Redding .45 ACP dies to load both .45ACP and .45AR on my RCBS RC. Doesn't require any changes to the die setting as long as I use the same bullets. It does require a different shell holder. I don't know about the 310 as I never owned one. ...

    Cleaning after shooting is a must thats for sure. Wasn't sure if the accuracy was affected by it. I have seen a few with muzzle loaders with chrome lined barrels and figured it might be a good thing.

    Hey Guys. When it comes to shooting black powder is a chrome lined barrel a good thing or does it really matter?

    Those 15 twist barrels are intriguing, to say the least. I'm just wondering if the throat will accommodate something like the RCBS 30-165-SIL. Anyone have any first hand knowledge about these barrels and cast?

    Mag spark? I will have to look into that. Thanks for that. It replaces the nipple on a standard side lock? I bet if one company made one model inline with a long twist they would be surprised how many people would buy one.

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."
