    SKS GAS TUBE MODIFICATION SKS rifles are notorious for their violent ejection of fired cases. This may be desirable on the Russian tundra at 20 below but for the reloader trying to find the brass it is intolerable. The following modification...

    If I wanted to increase the bullet size after sizing I measure the diameter of the sized bullet and determine from that how much I want to hone the "H" die out. In your case if the bullets are sized .459 and I want them .461 then I want a .002...

    I remember, I had an uncle there who survived it. He was on the California, heard the attack, ran up to an open deck in his skivvy's. Was blown over the side, hit the water. Started to swim to shore, then had a thought. No uniform, no dog tags,...

    A good suppressor with supersonic ammunition will suppress the muzzle blast almost entirely. What is heard by the shooter is the crack of the bullet as it exits the suppressor. That crack sound is moving away from you. The intensity of the...

    The Turks loaded their 8x57 JS ammunition to German standards of pressure and velocity. Apparently the '88s were capable of handling it w/o problems. Not saying to load to such for your rifle, just providing the indormation.

    That is so.....constantly amazes me the "old wives' tales about the mythical SEE, (Secondary Explosion Effect) that was debunked years ago. "Secondary pressure waves" hang on and are so often repeated........ forsooth indeed!

    white eagle replied to a thread CWD Again in Our Town
    Wisconsin had a no baiting rule (not sure if it applies yet) and when CWD was just getting a grip in the state the DNR had what they called an eradication zone where their intent was to kill most of all the deer in that area. SO they set up bait...

    I have tested 760/H414 in the 30x60 XCB (similar in capacity to the 7.65 Argentine) and my 308W Palma rifle under the 164 gr 30 XCB cast bullet and the 311466. It only performed reasonably well when the psi and, subsequently the velocity, was well...

    Randy is absolutely correct. That is the essence of using aperture or open sights. Focus on the front sight.........it is the front sight that must be crystal clear in focus. The target may be slightly blurred or fuzzy and that's okay. When you...

    In lever action rifles when using jacketed bullets there's not really any difference. However, since this is a cast bullet forum, I'll assume the question refers to the use of cast bullets. Given conventional lubed, GC'd cast bullets of...

    For the second year in a row the deer I shot has tested positive for CWD. I am beginning to wonder if it even worth hunting anymore for whitetails in my area. My land is private and second positive deer in as many years make me wonder if the whole...
