    If this is your first single shot Henry, you will like it. What is the trigger pull, if you have a gauge? Guess if you don't. The triggers were flat out garbage when they first came out, but the recall really got their game together. I personally...

    Well, these aren't THAT crazy of loads. There's still a number of big game rifles that are worse. What always gets me is somebody with a 45-70 or similar comes by and starts touting all this about sectional density, that they are so big, they don't...

    To be honest, there is no reason 2400 would not make a fine slug powder for heavy loads, but you will not find any data for it. I can not recommend anyone use 2400 powder, as I've never used it myself. It is a powder with almost no data in shotguns....

    It won't break his shoulder, it just won't be pleasant. I've never been able to get my hands on those Breneke gold crush's. Those are by far the most powerful factory slug you can buy for a 12 gauge. If you just want to get a taste of recoil, one...

    There are two scenarios I have experienced that have caused an out of round bullet some of the time. A third was an out of round mold, but every bullet would be that way. #1 is poor fill out. It is very possible to have a bullet out of round because...

    I don't see anything wrong with that. You would probably want to cast them of something other than pure lead, although pure lead will work. With clip on wheel weights, they might be real close to 1000 grains. That's a lot of mass heading down range....

    Do you leave cartridges in them? Are they practical beyond SASS or other for-fun shooting?

    Electric motors don't really have any moving parts. The shaft obviously turns, but nothing mechanical causes it to turn. You are 100% correct on the rotary engine. I just double checked, and I did not realize the rotor and shaft (eccentric...

    Possibly a typo, but to clarify, you would be boring starting only 1/2" from the muzzle, and going back. To be honest, I don't know a good way to do it, as I've not done it myself. I figured I'd throw it out there incase you had an idea. I believe...

    Being as you are a machinist, maybe you could try jug choking a barrel yourself. The idea is the same as constricting chokes, except you are relieving an area just shy of the muzzle so the shot expands, then contracts down again choking it. You...

    i use one for about everything... i dont push my chainsaw through for the smaller stuff. I use a boat winch and pull mine through. unless I need to mill something longer then 8ft. i also use a deck to do mine as its easier on my back.

    What he has drawn is a hefty payload of bullet lube. It may not look like much, but I wouldn't be surprised that holds almost 10 grains of lube. I shot the 73-770S lubed with my 50-50 lube. Fouling was no problem at all with Goex Fg. Accuracy was...

    No, they aren't. I've used both, and there is nothing wrong with the TC breech plug. Water cleans out both with no problem.

    That's a tough one. Since it propels something, usually an aircraft, I think most would call it an engine. Instead of a connecting rod to create movement, you are using the air to create movement. Speeding air up super fast, similar to a rocket...

    Say what you will, but there is nothing wrong with TC's patent breech plug. Sure, the TC uses two 45 degree angles verses one 90 degree turn, but you don't hear about the TC plugs blowing out of rifles either. No matter how you slice it, a drum was...
