    True except for the one feature the spurred the Creedmoor's development. That is the ability to use the very long VLD or hybrid type bullets favored for long range competition in a 308 length magazine.

    Nope - never had a 6mm/244 Rem. Only one I had was the 25-06. They may have changed it later realizing that they made a mistake. I know mine was a 12 twist. This was back in the 70's.

    M-Tecs replied to a thread Windows 10 in Our Town
    I love Windows 10. I do have a very fast cable connection so updates are not an issue. It did take a little getting used too but it has been the most trouble free system I have used. I started with an Apple Macintosh in the 1987. I would have...

    Yup, item # and mold # are very different things. We typically use mold number here - thus the confusion. Thanks for clearing it up.

    Remington used a 1/12 rifling in the 25-06 and consequently they have problems with accuracy with boolits over about 117 gr. When I had mine I could shoot 76 gr Sierria Seconds, 100gr Sierria Seconds into less than 3/4" at 100yds. This was an ADL...

    I just purchased a CZ75 Tactical Sport Orange. That is the finest out of the box pistol I have ever seen or handled.

    The nipple should be removed no more than once a year for inspection and relubrication. Repeatedly removing it wears the threads, and will eventually cause dangerous failure. Plain old luke warm water is all you need to clean with. Hot water...

    Wayne Smith replied to a thread Castor Oil in Cast Boolits
    Not a problem. It is the castor bean that the poision is derived from. The oil is not dangerous. Airplane engines in WWI used castor oil because of it's heat tolerance and it's tendency to move toward heat rather than away from it. Engines were...

    Where did you get your mold? Someone gave you a mold for the 6.5 Arisaka, not the 7.7. If the mold number starts with a 266 it is a .266 diameter boolit - your rifle barrel has a groove diameter of something like .314. No way that boolit is gonna...

    I don't have a 455 so I can not comment on them. I do have 452's and 453's. Between the two I prefer the 452. I don't care for the set trigger on the 453. The stock 452 trigger becomes a thing of beauty with the YoDave trigger kit...

    1) God is immutable - He changes not. Appearance of change requires another explanation. 2) The purpose of prayer is to move me closer to the mind of God, not to get my desires met. The closer I get to God the more satisfied I am. All too often...

    So set up a target where the deer are feeding, or at the same distance. Load your cartridges and practice, practice, and practice. As in any shooting - you are unique and your gun is unique. Start with a case full of BP and go from there.

    Allow me to provide an alternative. Reloading itself is a rewarding hobby, but it is an introduction to even more fun. Shooting and reloading go together well, because first reloading allows me to shoot more inexpensively and, at least in revolvers...

    Are you saying you have a problem getting all six of the boolits out of the mold? If that's the case drop an e-mail or PM to Miha (Mihec) and he will deal with it.
