    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 is common for dealers to use a boilerplate terms statement. They bold or highlight the specific details that apply to the specific sale. He clearly stated only "ship to FFL". The portion about C&R is not in bold. He is not trying to pull a...

    On another forum a Norma spokesman started Norma has stopped production of the lower volume items until they get caught up with the high demand items. That is normal within the most industries.

    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.

    The only subsonic I have shot deer with have been 45 Colt with a soft bullet. They were very effective. For big game it's all about energy transfer as it relates to wound damage. For cast I have never taken big game with less than a 35 cal. I...

    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...

    Same for me. I try not to support any "woke" business. That being said I am purchased a new 2023 Chevy Silverado with the baby diesel. I don't have any other options for what I am looking for.

    Arrow impacts are surprising loud and hearing the bullet impact game with standard high velocity rifles is normal once the distance gets out there a bit. Same for shooting prairie dogs. If you are away from your shooting partner, you can clearly...

    I am in the process of doing the same with a 458 SOCOM. I am also going to suppress one of my prairie/coyote dog rifles. These will only be used with supersonic loads. With PD's the louder the report the further they spook into the holes. With...

    With the wolf or the Russian primers magnum indicates a thicker cup and not a hotter primer. Ball powders tends to be harder to ingnite so magnum primers are recommended.
