    I've had that happen with too much compression, insufficient neck tension, fouled seating plugs/dies. Some of my dies have tiny vent holes in the side, on the others I drilled a hole down through the center of the seating plug. At times I can watch...

    If your barrel really is tight at the crown that's probably good thing (you don't want it loose at that end). I'm with Tokarev; send one from the chamber end.

    Managing the pond would be one part of the solution but it may not take long to fish it out, likewise the local game population. Your little slice of heaven may not respond well to you being the new Apex Predator on the block unless there are very...

    Yep! I don't know when the disconnector became mandatory but since that gun didn't have one, the smith wasn't touching it.

    Thanks! For years I've been telling myself the dross was probably high in tin and antimony, and re-melting it to recover 'the good stuff.' Some Old Guy told me that, back when I was Some Young Guy.

    You are correct. Concern yourself more with the way you live and if your current job is unacceptable for any reason, it is time to leave. God may have been able to save the world, but only if the world wanted to be saved and as you can see, a lot...

    Tell him it doesn't matter what the internet says, if he got data from Hornady and then knowingly went over max, he's making a mistake. It also doesn't matter what your experience is with 9mm reloads, if he sought your advice there's at least a...

    The main problem I see with bugging out is that any long distance travel will be extremely dangerous. You will be ambushed at some point. Bridges and tunnels are out of the question unless you're able to fight your way through or pay an extremely...

    Well, the OP felt so strongly about this he never came back. To answer his question: there's no way to eliminate the promotion and inclusion of gays in the workplace. If he tries it he'll be fired. If the company tries it they'll be sued. If he...

    THAT is a good idea! With a leg on either side of the bench you can either scoot back or stand up.

    That! If I'm in a hurry or don't let it cool enough I'll use the cutter but in my case, that always gets a little messy. Once the cake is nice and firm at room temp I lay the cake face-up on an old towel and break them loose by pushing each nose...

    I wonder if the breech block could be modified to convert a press-fit or a threaded pin extractor to a spring-loaded pin, or if anyone at Remington considered it? Seems like it wouldn't be hard to do and would be fairly easy to replace.

    Years ago it was drilled into my head to keep the floor in my workspace as clear as possible, plus I seem to be mildly claustrophobic (from working in a lot of confined spaces, probably) and a chair or stool in the area just takes up too much space....

    Probably because they're not trolls, like the OP. God didn't make this mess on Earth, we did. Why should He clean it up? None of us can know what the Kingdom of Heaven actually is or what it's purpose might be, but it can't an easy place to get...

    Yeah, don't bother with the skull cap. I dated two Jewish women in this country and spent some time in Israel. They understand we don't know many of their customs and traditions but as long as you're decent you'll be fine.

    For 100 yard targets you can do ok with pistol boolits and I hope it works for you. I tried lightweights for the 45-70 and didn't care much for it, though I did learn a lot. Target loads using Unique, 4198, and Goex under cast bullets from 350-500...

    I don't have the instructions but if you get hold of a Lee "Slide Rule" it will give you weights and volumes of most powders. Makes it easy to calculate the weight of 1.6cc of whichever powder you have https://leeprecision.com/sleeve-slide-card.html
