    I've always been a big fan of older single shot rifles for hunting and plinking here on the farm. Due to a move 2-3 years ago, I discovered a long-lost old stevens model 44 1/2 singleshot in the back of a closet. I've had it forever, and the 22LR...

    Per an email reply from Browning the B92 were .357 and 44 Mag. only. I have seen one rebore and one rebarrel in 45 Colt.

    M-Tecs replied to a thread the 17 in Rimfire Area
    It's been done as early as the 60's but the real issue is fouling problems with the larger cases. The 17 Remington is a prime example. The smaller case 17 Hornet and 17 Fireball don't seem share this issue. It also depends on intended usage. Fox...

    Between the virus and the social unrest the manufacturers can't keep up. Most distributors are out of anything remotely reassembling a self defense firearm. Since February over 2 million new first time purchasers.

    Some friends and I were riding our ATV's in Mark Twain NF about 3 weeks ago and 2 riders went ahead and while I was looking for a different route I saw a brand new fawn walk right in front of me. It bed down right at the side of the track and...

    The 17 HMR was first than the 17 Mach 2 than the 17 WSM. I have the 17 Mach 2 and the 17 HMR. I shoot the 17 HMR the most. I am heading out of state tomorrow to shoot prairie dogs. The 17 HMR is awesome for under 175 yards on PD's on a claim...

    As I stated I have limited knowledge of RB's. Not sure how the longer bullets chamber in a 45-90. They do make them. https://sr-gunworks.com/remington-rolling-block-in-45-90/ ...

    As stated by some the RB does have AOL issues with longer cartridges. This is strictly from memory and I am not a RB guy but I believe 45-90 is about the limits without having to modify the hammer nose. ...

    Iíve never had to use small base dies even resizing machine gun brass, however this is not to say others havenít had these problems. I think it boils down to where you get your brass from. Are you buying 7.62nato bulk brass possibly fired from...

    Does it work? Yes, as you pointed out most of the time it does. Is it less than ideal yes. The same can be done some bottleneck higher pressures bottleneck cartridges is some actions/chambers. With straight wall lower pressure cartridges the...

    I found a couple of9mm that looked just like that and determined that they were fired in a 40 (I had a 40 cal. bullet on my bench). They make an interesting knick knack.

    Back in the mid 70's when I was doing 357 Herrett all I had was a Lyman Universal Trimmer. With normal pressure it took a month of Sundays to cut them to length. I discovered if you really jammed the cutters in each tooth would cut a nice curl and...

    Not really. It just means the extractor is long enough to hold the case secure enough to fire. It fairly common for the 10mm crowd to shoot 40 S&W in their guns https://www.thetruthaboutguns.com/40-in-a-10mm-glock/

    Primers normally don't denotate with a slow compression. I have tested this several times by squeezing them flat in a machine vise. My guess is the crimp held the primer until enough pressure was applied and it popped in with sufficient force and...

    That's the down side to being color blind. Shot a lot of the m855 but I've never seen the M855A1. Thanks for the correction.
