    Welcome to the board. Sorry to hear of your loss. Was the gentleman also a caster? If so, then there is probably a good chance the mold those bullets came from is around there some where. If he was, and you do find the mold they were cast from,...

    After 30+ years of casting and lubing with a lube sizer (Lyman & Star), I can't deny I haven't been tempted to try powder coating. I can see the advantages of it, no doubt. On the other hand, my shop seems to have shrank in size over the years. Oh...

    I have a 2C 311041 and it’s stellar. Casts quite easily and is ever so slightly tapered in the correct direction. With ACWW the driving band is .3105”. The next band is .311 and the remaining bands are .312”. Fits the throat of my win 70...

    great rifle and great cartridge. If you elect to form brass from .308 as many have suggested (and I would agree), may I humbly suggest you pick up a form and trim die. I grabbed one from someone here and it was worth every penny I paid.

    Aside from all other things, copper fouling from Jack-word factory ammo can shred lead bullets. I ended up scrubbing out a 41 mag four times before it was clean enough to shoot lead. Factory stuff leaves behind some pretty hard fouling. Just a...

    And there you have it. Not to come across as less than caring or rude, but Conditor22 is correct. Every firearm is an entity of it's own and there simply is no best mold for your particular one, until you've tried several styles and weights. I...

    I've perused Armslist a few times in the past, never saw any reason to create an account. No big loss to me. No pun intended, but they may have shot themselves in the foot with this one. With all of the panic buying going on, I'm sure they saw a...

    I read about Nikon getting out of the scope business sometime back. My sentiments fall in line with most here about it. I purchased it new a little over 10-11 years ago. It's seen little use on a Stevens 200 in 308. I'd put the Nikon 3X9 on the...

    I don't see them going away or out of style anytime soon. I was over on Gunbroker the other night and one seller (a good sized outfit) had a 151 revolvers up for auction. About 95% of them, I would classify as a snubby. All but 1 had multiple bids...
