    I just keep a half pint mason jar full of ed's on the bench. Cylinder goes in overnight and gets a 40cal bore brush in a yankee screwdriver the next day. Just sit it face down in the padded vice and give each one a few strokes and it's gone. No...

    I have a couple of blocks that I set up and ran into the "block really not square" issue. I do keep a bunch dismantled fealer gauges to use as shims in my toolbox. I'm shopping around right now for an indicator and will probably have to mount it in...

    Dsh 1106 thank you sir that is most helpful. As soon as I get some time after deer season I'll see how many chunks of scrap I make before I get a usable one made.

    If anybody has a mic laying around next time they have a 310 shell adapter out could you snap a measurement and tell me how thick they are ? I have all the other dimensions pulled from my handles, just need the thickness before I fire up the lathe....

    One thing I've found very helpful in both my reloading room and shop are file cabinets. They are cheap sturdy and best of all mouse proof if you keep them closed. The tall 4 and 5 drawer ones are great for parts bins and tool storage. The 2 drawer...

    Thanks guys, I'm getting better about set up at this point but still have some major learning to do. I wanted to make sure I wasn't looking at this sideways. It looks like I need to invest in a last word and an edge finder set. I always found it...

    Let me start by saying I'm kinda green at running my mill effectively. Most of my experience has been on the lathe. I have a couple of molds that I'm planning on cutting for a hp pin. I'm shooting for a larger Lyman type spud because it's pretty...

    http://castboolits.gunloads.com/showthread.php?318920-375-303/page2 Here's one of the 303-375 threads. I think the 375 is as far as you can go on the 303 case, but I'm getting to far into the tall grass here to be of much help. I thought I was...

    Is your rifle a #1 mk3 or a # 4. We are dealing with two different pressure limits here. The other thing to consider is that your still going to need to fit a new tube. There is just not enough meat in one for a rebore. I would consider a stub in...

    I just looked and I can't find those actions in sarcos paper ad either. They must have sold out, I'd seen them listed for so long I just figured they would still have them. My apologies all around.

    Hornets are just neat, you either love them or declare them obsolete and shoot a 223. Much of the case life issues can become non issue if you ream to k- hornet but you give up the nice long neck if you want to shoot cast. To me just the fact that...

    I have one of the Gibbs / navy arms 45-70 carbines on a number 4 action. It's a fun rifle. You have to open up the left side of the action and do some ramp work but they will feed. Thd 45-70 rim is just enough bigger to be a pain. You have to...

    You know I never weighed it. I'd say with scope it was a little heavier than one of the slim barrel 410 but not much. Believe it or not that's an 18 inch tube. I was going to go 16 but after measuring I decided that 18 was short and light enough. at...

    They make a dandy light rifle. This is one I built on a 12 ga sb1 frame with a green river gunsmith blank. 45 acp and it's a shooter. Have a couple lined up to be 357 mags in the next few months. I use the threaded stub method with a barrel...
