    Rethroating the factory chamber to 3 degrees, Basic ( the half angle per side) departing directly from the case mouth, without any transitional ball seat, will get you 3" ten-shot, 100 yard groups with low power hunting scope fired off bags, firing...

    Been shooting a 10-5 for 40+yrs. Bought it from a retired LAPD Sgt. He told Me to shoot #358477 over 3.5grs of Bullseye to a 25yr zero. That 6" bbl is as straight a Shooter as ya could wish for, a Smooth action and a Tyler T-Grip make it a real...

    George Stidworthy, Mark Humpreville, Pres Kendall, Maurice Kaiser and Lones Wigger never used anything other than pure mineral oil USP and cotton patches. Otherwise you wear out more barrels from cleaning than by shooting.

    Average of how many groups? How many shots per group? A few three-shot groups I'll certainly believe. An average of five or more 5-shot groups I'd sure like to see pictures before I'd believe it.... Consecutive targets without excluding any data....

    Nobody seems to make quality replacement grips for the current medium frame flat top Ruger Blackhawks. I would like to find some nicely checkered walnut grips which are a bit fuller than the factory black plastic stocks, but not bulky for ham...

    Yes, but the best way to get all info and ask questions (they WANT you to ask if you don't know something!) is by going to www.mewe.com, sign up and look for "Primer Reloading" group. Marshall Thompson and Mark Wilson are the 2 pro's (Marshall is...

    My a experience has been that Microgroove Marlin 1894s keyhole with cast bullets if you try to drive them much over about 1400 fps. The Ballard rifling will stand 1500 fps with plain base and 1700 with jacketed. With a Hunter's Supply .358 diameter,...

    To determine the amount of correction needed use the expression X = RE/D where X is the amount to be removed from the front sight R is the sight radius E is the elevation error D is the target distance.

    If you have a .30 M1 Carbine finish chamber reamer, this can be carefully run into a .32 ACP chamber and stopped short to cut a longer and more gradual throat to give a better fit to cast bullets.

    Bullets in factory .38 S&W loads are typically .359-.360" diameter with only a shallow cupped base, which may or may not slug-up to fit the oversized barrel. Factory .38 Long Colt loads have a deep hollow base like .38 Special wadcutters and shoot...

    Sounds to me like an ex-cop gun which was fitted with a target hammer. If an "action job" was done by anyone other than a factory-trained gunsmith or department armorer, you could be buying into a Bubbafied nightmare. The fixed sight guns can be...

    Six-inch Model 10s have always been popular with smaller rural departments which don't issue their deputies patrol rifles. The longer barrel and sight radius makes hits in open country easier, and there is improvement in ballistics also. I prefer...

    So for the lack of a better place to post this (and if there is, please PM me or move), I have successfully been able to breathe "new life" into my spent primers! It's like a miracle, especially since I can get very close to the performance I was...

    I had one mold I bought that had something unknown all over it... Boiling hot soapy water and a tooth brush started the clean. That did little, brake cleaner and a tooth brush cleaned really well but there was rust all outside. (Cavities...

    Small primer .45 ACP with standard small pistol primer gives a wee bit lower velocity than a large primer, but results in a safe, satisfactory and accurate load. I prefer the small primer for mild wadcutter target loads and it seems easier to...

    After much research, deliberation and mustering up the initiative, I have successfully remanufactured my used small pistol primers! (Using EPH-20 recipe). Once you get through the "synthesis" to make the lead hypophosphite from the lead nitrate and...

    Best advice is get a hot plate & USE IT!! Bring molds to 350/375 degrees before staring ta cast. I guaranty the majority of problems will disappear. CW

    I took both a Cougar and a Blk Bear in My youth. Both treed over dogs. Used a .357Mag on one and a .30-30 on the other. I spent many long hours "Woods Walking" in the Eastern Sierras. Saw tracks but never a live animal. Never felt undergunned with...
