    Being forced to purchase a pound or two is a killer due to Hazmat. Normally I never order less than 32 pounds at a time.

    Yup, I just placed an order last night and that's what I did. I did need it in 2 days so I paid extra for that. Shipping in general over the last couple of years has gotten really slow except for Amazon and they use their own trucks or they...

    If I was you I'd wait for a new Marlin/Ruger 1894 in .44 Magnum. They will have 1:20 twist barrels and accuracy will be excellent, and the guns will also be excellent as many improvements have been made to the basic design.. I am waiting for an 1894...

    Depends on the person I received them from. Most people think nothing of hopping into a vehicle with someone else driving yet they don't trust this same person's reloads. Odds are far greater that they will hurt or kill you in their vehicle verse...

    Yes this is the reason why you Size/Deprime in the center station. On your press that is directly in between the two guide rods. It isn't that big a deal to move the cartridges around to the different stations. Hence the strength of the design. ...

    Just watched the Lunar eclispe from the deck. I got lucky and also spotted one very good meteor trail and one that I am guessing was a comet. It had the longest length and longest lasting trail I have seen.

    M-Tecs replied to a thread AR Triggers in Factory Rifles
    I mostly work on NRA Service and Match AR's. For Service rifle a #4.5 trigger is required. That is one of the reasons two stage are so popular. When you preload the first stage to about 3 pounds the break only requires 1 1/2 pounds. For my Match...

    M-Tecs replied to a thread AR Triggers in Factory Rifles
    I have been able to get fairly decent trigger pulls on stock triggers with replacement springs and stoning/polishing the sear. That being said most aftermarket triggers are far superior to most tuned stock triggers. Single stage verse two stage...

    In the fall of 2019, the LGS was selling 9mm ball for $7.99 a box. If you bought a case that went down to $6.99 per box of 50. Today the same ammo is $29.99 a box. The store was making the same dollar amount per box at $7.99 as they are at...

    I have been shooting good quality Airguns since 1975. We lived on the Colorado River just south of the Davis Dam in Bullhead City AZ. One of the guys in the house had an ancient Diana Break Barrel .177 cal Rifle. All the pellets we could find were...

    Just soak it in a bucket of Diesel for a few days and then blow it off with a Air Gun. It should clean up just fine. If someone actually covered it in spray on oil or Rust preventative then they did you a favor. Most people just let them rot...
