    I have a hundred ness bullets to use up with the big pins. I haven’t found it’s Sweet Spot yet with the big hollow point pins yet. The penta pins and they just drop off. I’ll get back to playing with it later this year I hope. It does shoot well...

    I’ve loaded the 308 hunter in the 30-30 with 12" twist. Shoots @ 1" at 50 yards with 4-5 grns bullseye. I also sized it to 0.302" and paper patched it and was getting @1 3/4" - 2" groups at 100 yards with jacket loads. The nose is a little small...

    Oops:oops: I have the 308 hunter mould which looks similar to the one you are asking about. But it will most likely rain bullets for you as well.

    You can always drill out the primer pockets in some rimless cases which is supposed to stop excess headspace in mouse fart loads. But you wouldn’t want to mix them up with full house load brass. I don’t powder coat but I believe plain base cast...

    I have that mould and when you get into the rhythm they just fall out of the mould easily. Work O.k in my gun but the nose is a little small. Well I should say my bore is a little big for the mould but easily gets 1" groups at 50 yards. Keeping it...

    I got a couple that I cut up wth a cold chisel into smaller lumps to make ingots out of. I’ll see if I have anything worth taking a picture of tomorrow. Definitely thumb nail soft. I wish I could source some more. These were out of a boats...

    Just makes them more efficient. Interesting design thou. I donít collect them but I am drawn to the simplicity of a single shot rifle.

    Yeah I can see where the barrel has been rubbed or work hardened and a fine hard finish / polish has been achieved. Yes I believe you’s are right about needing some teeth in the metal. The first couple of test ones were just a machine finish and...

    All true it is Naphtha ,white gas. It is actually petrol but in the 1940’s sense. Pure that is. It don’t go off and leaves very little waxy easters behind. They use special decantered and filtered stuff in the Antarctic as a failure is more life...

    It took 4 passes but I think my 2 cup backpacking kettle wasn’t up to snuff and left water marks as I was told would happen. Some places really didn’t take on the first pass. And never caught up. I did soak it in a pvc tube of boiling water a...

    Well I blued me Brno 1 barrel and happy with the way it came out. Learnt how I went wrong I think know.:D At one stage it was all gold like oil on a pond and I should have left it so I had a golden gun but I didn’t. Might call myself blotchy...

    This is what it looks like. Inside it’s a very dark colour but in hard light it looks transparent like looking through layers of polished wood. I think I’ll leave it as it will stop the rusting. Next time I’m going to follow the path layer out...

    Well I got my ammonium chlorite and mixed a small batch up with it. I couldn’t get it to take till I scratched the surface with the mix in steel wool. It would just bead up. I may have to return to oil removal properly. But the small section I...
