    One thing about brain shots that needs to be kept in mind is that there is zero blood loss. Field dressing ASAP helps even though the heart isn't pumping any blood out. I first discovered that when I had three tags. Two buck tags and a doe tag. ...

    Stan Baker passed about a dozen years ago. If I remember correctly Brownell's sold the expansion tooling to do that type of choke. Give them a call. They might still have instructions or advise. I've never did one myself but if I remember...

    W.R.Buchanan replied to a thread Revelation shotgun in Shot Guns
    My last Tactical Project was a Montgomery Wards/ Mossberg 500. The Monkeyberg! It is identical to every other M500 except for the markings on it. You may see it on the "What I did to my Shotguns" thread. I missed a Western Auto Marlin 336 for...

    I was looking at Silver Soldering a Sleeve onto the barrel and threading that but trying to get the entrance to the choke tube directly on the end of the barrel was going to be hit and miss. How do you contact Stan Baker? I'd like to talk to him?...

    It's more work but thin-walled barrels can be swaged up for choke tubes. It was very common at one time. Stan Baker did one for me in the mid 80's by belling out the last couple inches of the barrel and threading it for his custom Winchoke...

    I just cut an 30" FC A5 barrel to 20" with the intention of having Rem Chokes installed. Rude awakening when we found out the wall thickness was not enough to thread. So now I have a 20" A5 barrel that is "Skeet" choked at .725 ID. I have no...

    Water does not break BP down. BP that has been underwater for a very long time can be dried and used. If the ball or shot has been removed any reason to not just fire it?

    The local Bridgeport Equipment & Tool had CCI small rifle primers today for 6.99/100. Ammo shelves were full plus a nice selection of powder. Some ammo was marked "sale." Things appear to be catching up. When things are on the shelf hoarder seem to...

    Hate to tell you this but Aimpoint started selling them in 1975. In two years it will be 50 years. The reflector sight was invented in 1900 by the Irish telescope maker Sir Howard Grubb. Aimpoint claimed to be the first to mass produce a reflector...

    He mostly is correct. It will not blow the barrel up but it can damage the chokes on older guns. For this purpose older is about pre-1980 however Remington says that all of their barrels made after 1950 are steel shot compatible if they are choked...

    I ordered because I wanted to stock up while primers were on sale. Of course as you say the hazmat does figure in the cost. FWIW I could order 50,000 primers at that time & the shipping & hazmat came to just under 5% of the total cost. Same for six...
