    Like I said before the human digestive system isn't compatible with blood. Prime rib (or what I call raw roast) is even worse. If I eat a rare steak or even medium rare im bound up for a couple days. I like my venison and beef cooked so there just...

    why do you feel base first sizing trues up a bullet better then nose first? Competitive shooters have been nose first sizing for generations. If your doing it to seat checks seat them before you pc and there a lot easier to put on. Also ive tried...

    wonder if you could use a pistol buffer tube on the rifle and then weld a longer buffer on the bottom of the pistol buffer and put your stock on the lower tube. You wouldn't be able to retract it all the way in or possibly not at all but the only...

    22 TCM - It is a modern day 22 Hornet but with cases easily formed from 223. Depending on twist you could shoot heavier than the factory 35 grain. lil’gun will get 2900 FPS easily with jacketed. A couple grs unique is a pip squeak pop gun load -...

    not with the 762x39. the bushmaster I had wouldn't even do jacketed reliably. But in the 300 bo I found a bullet that runs real well. Its the 130 rcbs pointed gas check. The lee 125 didn't run a 100 percent in my bo. So far the only two bullets that...

    I agree. if anything most of the time all it takes is a bit more heat to cast with zinc contamination if its not to bad. Heck ive casted perfect looking bullets our of pure zinc. When I smelt wws I don't walk away from the kettle. I skim off the...

    On some of my PC Bullets if I know I am going to be shooting for high velocity, I will do a 2nd coat over the gas checked bullet to ensure the check stays with the bullet during its flight and that there is plenty of PC on the bullet for the trip...

    not a big ruger black pistol fan. I do think my two lcps were a great bang for the buck. I needed a 9 for my wife a while back when she got her ccw permit. I was going to give her my 43 but she just couldn't handle the trigger pull. Took her to the...

    Because its pretty tough to keep the primers in the tube that fits in the body while your putting it in. Its not suppose to come out and be loaded. Your suppose to load filler tubes and dump them in as you go.

    ya that wont work. to old school I guess. Cant see dawning safey glasses, gloves, a respirator and a hazmat suit to cast bullets. It might be smart but I never claimed to be.

    what are you trying to gain? I personaly don't have a use for a revolver with over a 6 inch barrel and surely don't want to drag around one with longer then 8. You get to the point you might as well carry a rifle. That said everyones wants and...

    bolt may only go back a couple inches but the buffer has a pad on it for a reason. If you tried it youd surely need to start with a rifle buffer tube because bending one with the block for a retractable stock would be about impossible to do...
