    It's still the original military 2 stage trigger. I just fine tuned it with a trigger stop and a crisp 3 pound pull . Been a while since I've had it apart but as I recall it was basically a M98 trigger.

    A Cross ball point pen carried in your shirt pocket makes a mighty fine weapon. The ones with chrome finish seems to be the sturdiest.

    Larry Gibson replied to a thread 16-1 in Lead and Lead Alloys
    That "crud" on top of each alloy is simply oxidized alloy. When you flux it will mix right back into the alloy. The crud is the same alloy as still molten. It is not tin separating from the alloy. As mentioned, what is happening is what...

    Because I push my 30 XCBs pretty hard at 50,000 +/- psi the extra hardness is proven to help them withstand that level of acceleration. With my match 30 XCBs, 311466s and 314299s WQing will bring the #2 alloy up to linotypes BHN without the...

    No. With my match bullets I seat the GCs separately using the Lyman tool on the 450. Then I only lube the bullets in an H&I die of the same diameter as the as cast diameter. With my 30 XCBs which drop at .3105 for example, I lbne them in a...

    We have carried knives for our lives both of us being born in farm country. Once a well known deputy (same one I had years before given a nice auto-knife to) advised me that in ILL-nois a clip attached knife was considered a "concealed weapon".

    I've always gone with the 5 BHN so that's probably close enough. Was just confused by the NSIS BHN and getting that same measurement with the sample of supposed pure lead I was sent.
