    Whether it would be dangerous or not would depend on the bullet construction. I have pressure tested bullets of .307 up through .312 in a .308W with a .308 groove dimeter barrel. Cast bullets and cup (brass jacket) and core bullets there was a...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    The addition of the replacement C stock in lieu of the straight stock to the M1902A1 configuration could be done at unit level. Hard to say when/where yours was done at. Beautiful rifle BTW.

    I shot many a 170 Keith bullet over 14.5 gr H4227 out of an OM BH. Ran right at 1300 fps out of the OMBH and was a good load. Picked up an 8 lb jug of Hodgdon's IMR 4227 yesterday at the LGS for $275.

    Bought an 8 lb jug of Hodgdon's IMR 4227 for $275 at LGS. That's basically $35 a pound. Figured that was as good as it will get for a while.

    M-Tecs replied to a thread Cost of Ammo in Cast Boolits
    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...

    Do you have a historical reference for that? I was aware it was discarded as a useless byproduct of making kerosene and discarded before the internal combustion engines created a demand. During the 60's and 70's gas was widely used as a cleaning...
