    One that won't cost you more than a single ball bearing of 3/8 to 5/8 inch and a piece of pure lead. It is as accurate (care being taken) as a $2000 labritory tester. You just take your lead sample that is about 3/4 thick and press the ball...

    It shouldn't cast anywhere near .308. According to Lyman, it's normal cast with diameter with #2 alloy is .322. Frank

    From what I understand, many of the cracks are from trying to loosen the barrel and over torquing the action. The better way to take one of these barrels off is to make a cut in a lathe, with a parting tool just forward of the receiver ring, down to...

    If they are tipping but, you have good accuracy, there is no problem. It's best to only have slight tipping or no tipping at all but, you can have excellent accuracy with badly tipped bullets as shown by this 200 yard score target that I shot in the...

    I fail to see how it can be the powder position if, they were all levered into the chamber and ONLY the first shot had the single high velocity. The ES was exceptable on all other shots, indicating that it isn't position sensitive. Frank

    In the early 80's gold peaked out at $800+ and that was to high. It fell like a rock and remained low for far to long. The '99 price was to low and gold has gotten back to about what it should be at this time. I've alway compared it to Platinum....

    I think that is way to conservative. I do inflation by the price of gold. It was $20 per oz then, it is now $1270. 1270/20 = 63.5 so, that $10 gun would be $635 adjusted by what the $10 was worth in gold in 1921. Frank

    When you have stability issues with jacketed bullets, ALWAYS measure your twist rate. I have purchased 3 barrel blanks, over the years that where mis-marked. Two 25 cals, both marked 12 twist, one was 10 twist and the other was 18! The barrel...

    This is another NOE mold up for discussion. This one is made to fit the neck and throat of the 32 Winchester Special but, it will also fit the 32/40 and I think the 32 Remington. I can't find a chamber drawing for the 32 Rem but, I have a Mod 14...

    W. A. powder was the only powder ever used in the 30 Army cartridge (according to Major Whelen) and maybe it spiked badly at the increased pressure. I believe it was the first smokeless powder ever used by the military and I don't think it was ever...

    I've only shot my 1899 twice, once with the 31413 and once with 150 gr FB jacketed spitzers. I can get cartridges of 2.6 OAL into my magazine but, that's all. I'd be interested to know your groove size, mines is only .306. Frank

    Just got back from Sportsman Warehouse (Sun) and I bought that can of RL22. They added about 4-5 lb of 4000MP but, nothing in the pistol/med burning powders :( The RL22 will go in my 6mm Imp but, I rarely shoot it. Frank

    Welcome to Medford, Dutch :) They've had that 50 cal powder for a while. You went on a better day than I have. I try to go a couple of times a week. Primers are pretty good but, not cases to speak of. And NO 22's! Frank

    I believe it is in a soft alloy like WW. It wasn't designed to be a hunting only bullet but, a accurate (can't get game if you don't hit them), good all round compromise for Hunting, Cowboy and target. Frank
