    405grain replied to a thread Iver Johnson in Rimfire Area
    Have it bored out and a liner installed. I've built several 22lr barrels for 10-22's that have a 7075 aluminum barrel with a Redman liner. They work great and are very accurate. A good gunsmith could easily install a liner and chamber it. The...

    There are two main differences between a '93 bolt and a '95 bolt. First, and most obvious, is that the '93 bolt has a square "chin". At the time it was produced Mauser thought that this chin would assist in stripping rounds from the magazine. It...

    I also think that the 1895 Chilean Mauser was a very well made and designed small ring. I have two of these actions that I bought years ago for about $40 each. Luck smiled and both of them came with hinged floorplates. One of them is being turned...

    I was having problems with bore riding boolits too. after powder coating the nose was too fat. I machined up a nose sizing die that uses neck sizing bushings and screws into a single stage reloading press just like a reloading die. It didn't...

    405grain started a thread Casting Season in Cast Boolits
    I don't cast boolits out of necessity, I do it because it's an enjoyable pastime. Getting way lots more ammunition to shoot at a fraction of the cost of jacketed bullets is a perk. Everything about casting/reloading/shooting is fun and...

    Never heard of them. I entered their name in Google search and their pop-up for that site's webpage says "permanently closed". It's a scammer. I would avoid that like the plague. What ever it is that your interested in is probably bait that was...

    I don't own a Lee Enfield, but have heard from friends that have had tumbling issues with the 314299 boolit. Usually their problem stemmed from too low a velocity to get the longer boolit to stabilize. The 48th Lyman reloading handbook lists loads...

    Your problem is "California". It's not just their mandates, restrictions, permitting processes, surcharges, environmental compliance, equity and inclusion doctrines, over regulations, and inconceivably high taxes that are driving out businesses all...

    The Numrich barrels are short chambered, usually about 0.05". You are going to need a barrel vise and an action wrench to properly install the barrel. Then you'll need a chambering reamer and a GO and NO GO gauge to set the headspace. If you...

    Can you get a 1/4-22 die? If that's a possibility, you could use a die holder in the tailstock to cut the threads on a piece of stock, then machine those into action screws.

    405grain replied to a thread 45acp Boolit in Cast Boolits
    A million years ago when I first started casting, one of the first mold that I bought was the RCBS 230 grain round nose. It's a "nothing fancy" cast version of a hard ball bullet, and was designed with the 45 acp in mind. In many decades of use I...

    Many years ago I purchased the one and only barrel I will ever buy from ER Shaw. It had an obvious and highly visible constriction in the bore about three inches from the muzzle. They basically informed me that it's too bad, and wasn't their...
