    I epoxy them, and cut small silver nails to tack them in place. When you drill holes for them, slightly countersink, then peen the silver head into the flare, then file or sand smooth. Pretty much invisible. Just use some of your scrap silver, cut...

    Devcon has a tendency to change dimensions. Don't be surprised if you have to do some scraping on the bedding when you have had the metal out of the stock for very long.

    waksupi replied to a thread Surf's Up in Our Town
    The storm hit NW Montana hard. 30,000 out of power yesterday. One friend who had been hit by a windstorm late last year got it again, lost two sheds, tree down on his pickup, bending it in half, two other vehicles damaged, tree through the house...

    We built a lot of African dangerous game rifles on laminated stocks. Never pillared one of them. Never had a problem. That was with full action bedded, and chamber area of the barrel. I think pillars are best used on old oil soaked stocks that are...

    beagle replied to a thread Ever wear out a mold? in Cast Boolits
    Never have seen one worn our (that's an iron mould). I have seen abuse, neglect and accidents. I've seen the index holes bushed, I've seen sprue plate pivot screws and locking screws in bigger sizes that they came with. I've seen sprue plate stop...

    Ricky was a real hoot in the chatroom over the years. To say he protested when he was appointed to staff would be an understatement! We then knew we had the right guy for the job, as we never took on anyone who was dumb enough to actually volunteer...

    A round ball is pre-expanded. I prefer insuring a complete pass through with WW balls.

    Cold here in KY and time for another story. When I was young, my mom was a school teacher and dad was driving a truck. Being not quite old enough for school I stayed with my grandmother during the day. She was a farm raised woman and would try...

    300 grains might be too much of a good thing. I found Lyman's 375296 to be a good shooter in my .38-55 at ranges up to 300 yards. Made a pleasant shooting load in both the .38-55 and also in my .375 H & H./beagle

    Rich I think you got the M95 mixed with something else, but it does use an enbloc clip.

    Kinda makes you wonder what happened to all the Army's BB guns. Haven't heard much about them lately. They went through the kick of "reflex marksmanship" shooting tissue paper out of steel washer holes and then the next kick was using them with...

    I'd be willing to bet they're subcontracted Federals from the case and markings. Still neat that they survived. Like old things like that and my heart still yearns for a loading of Peters High Velocity loads in the "big blue" case. Still have a...

    Messed with one for a while with fair results. I used modified .30/06 brass which is suppose to be a no no and I used .308" bullets. First off, get some 7.7 Jap brass and eliminate the brass hassle. Then, get a bullet that will fit. They make...

    Those Kirst converter cylinders were designed to be shot with smokeless loads loaded to cowboy load specs. if I remember correctly. Leastwise, thatís the way some folks I know have been doing it for years, including my shaving partner.
