    I figured I would give the new 50 cal press mounted wad cutter a little more exercise today with some felt from duro-felt, and some sheet cork I got from Hobby Lobby to bolster the ready supply of black powder components for the Swede rollers.


    The sheet of cork was about 14 inches by 20 or so.




    The felt was a strip about 3 inches by 36 inches.

    Spent the day shooting clays with a 4H shooting sports club I'm leading and then home to put all those hulls back into rotation. Cleaned my son's G17 that the barrel had been soaking in Ed's Red all day. Cleaning 3 shotguns that were used today now.

    Fixed a lee HP .429 mold so the halves would line up and tested it out. I also GC some of ones I PC'd the other day.

    I am putting stuff away that I hauled to NCBS 2018. Also cleaning guns, and considering how to best put a new-to-me mould I scored at NCBS (Lyman #452423) to use and whether to add another war toy in 45 Auto Rim to the collection.
    I don't paint bullets. I like Black Rifle Coffee. Sacred cows are always fair game. California is to the United States what Syria is to Russia and North Korea is to China/South Korea/Japan--a Hermit Kingdom detached from the real world and led by delusional maniacs, an economic and social basket case sustained by "foreign" aid so as to not lose military bases.

    The barrel band/ hand guard retainer on my wife's Howa .30 Carbine Sporter needs help. It's plastic and the threads for the main screw are stripped. It's going to be a feat.....

    Made three quarts of "simple" lube, and finally got my Lyman 45 set up.





    Also had this happen...



    So I fixed it. The old wood handle sucked. It was REALLY tiny, didn't look nice, and had been chewed on at some point. I had a piece of Padauk lying around, so I made a new handle for it. I also welded the head back onto the shaft (get you mind out of the gutter!). I'm not the best welder, but this thing isn't meant to look perfect anyways. The head is rarely that clean.

    Any way you can get a longer screw and put a nut and lock washer on the other end to hold it? You might be able to hollow out a spot on the outside of the threaded part to help hold/hide the nut.

    Loaded up .38 special for the first time. 150 rounds, using Lee 120gr truncated cone projectiles I cast and powder coated the other day. Charged with 4.2 grains of Red Dot, they should be plenty fun out of my new S&W 686.

    Thanks, Taz. That's where I'm leaning, inletting a nut to bridge the stripped hole and provide a bite for the screw. It's going to be tight and no way is a new part to be found.

    I trimmed / prepped 50 .223 cases and PC'd 42 240 grain .430s. Just a little stuff.
    I also FINALLY ran out of blue powder and am on to RED. I think I'll stay at red for a while.

    Cleaned the AR. Prepped about 200 pieces of 223 brass. Measured and culled out some 45 cast. Watched this forum. My daily routine.

    Added a Hi-Point carbine 4595 to my list of firearms. After a few shots, took it in the shop and worked on the rear sight, moving it in-line with the rail. Tightened the screws and now ready to try sighting in again this afternoon. Have some bags of corn in my truck for the feeder at the lease. Squirrels opened a bag and it led me to get the .177 pellet gun out. Resighted it to point of aim at the same distance that the shot at the squirrel is sitting on a limb to see if I will really come out the door before he leaves. Oh, the carbine has a little manual in the box that starts of by saying if you shoot anything but f...fa....factory bbullets in it the warranty is void. Do not shoot reloads. Only high quality factory rounds. Do not use the offbrand hi count magazines as that will void the warranty. The warranty is only good to the first owner All this could could alter the sales of the carbine. It does have a good reputation of shooting everything you feed it well. Might work pretty good with a red dot sight.

    My SCCY 9mm has a warranty that follows the gun to whomever owns it. It has not missed a beat yet! Only shot about 150 -200 rounds.

    I wonder if you could carefully wrap Saran-Wrap around the screw, put a small amount of J-B Weld in the hole and turn in the screw and let it set up. Check for results.

    Started prepping another 1000 round batch of 223's. About 75-80% finished trimming them. My fingers aren't as tough as they were when I was working! Hopefully I will get them in the tumbler later today.
