    I tried removing the offending piece of shaft with a small ez out I have. It twisted in and then spun out. So I’ll still it out larger and tap it and thread the shaft. I have a 12x24 tap, but no die. Seen it.

    Asking price and selling price are two very different things. I watch many guns that start at a ridiculous price and never get a bid. I guess the seller really doesn't want to sell it.

    Best I recall it doesn’t lend to downloading well. It does make full power 30-30 though and offers excellent cast accuracy in that application. I used 32 grains to duplicate factory ballistics with the 31141. Sadly, out of 748 now.

    I shoot the traditional 405 grain cast bullet in mine over 3031 or 4895. Recoil with the starting load is not bad but the stronger loads can get pretty stiff.
