    Yes I own and use both. They both have their applications. For pits or rough bores I prefer the Lisle style brake hones. Stones are available in various grit.

    The flex hones with the balls are not the best for pitting. The brake cylinder type does a better job on pitting. ...

    I was just speaking to a rancher friend of mine about his new rifle/night scope/suppressor. Last year he lost 58 calves to coyotes during calving time. Normally he loses 15 to 20 out of about 600. During calving time he brings them into calving...

    Even the "new" just released reloading manuals tend to be at least a couple of years behind newly released powders/cartridges. For new powders/cartridges you can contact the manufacturer for data or use their websites to download and print.

    M-Tecs replied to a thread CZ 22 Hornet in Factory Rifles
    I always shoot jacketed first simple to determine accuracy level. That sets the benchmark for what I try to achieve with cast. I do have a CZ 22 Hornet. The best methods for barrel breaking or if it is even beneficial will not be settled in...

    That is a common complaint with them. The mainspring should be a flat spring. Not sure if other models are interchangeable. Try here https://www.ssfirearms.com/products.asp?cat=166&filter=mainspring

    The 2nd was not written for hunting. The "need" for firearms is to keep the "leaders" inline.

    It was Obama that instituted the ban on Russian primers. I went thru 30K of them. Had I known I would have purchased 10 times that. I still have some of the Berdan I use for my 7.5x55 Swiss.

    28,000 CUP/PSI is standard SAAMI for the 45/70. At 28,000 PSI and CUP are the same. The point is Shiloh is safe at 28,000 PSI/CUP. If SAAMI doesn't have a spec all manufactures say BP only for the older BP cartridges. Example here: ...

    Aperture sights are superior to normal rear sights in both accuracy and speed. On the speed issue if the aperture is too small that will create issues for speed. There is reason the US military has been using them since 1917 on their main battle...

    That's how I ended up with my 45-100 C. Sharps. I am very happy with it. Shoots awesome and fit and finish is equal to my friends Shiloh's. The only thing I don't like about it is no pistol grip but that's how it was ordered. The original owner...
