    Well dragged it to the range today for some shooting this morning. My excuses are there was mirage and my glasses kept fogging and going out of focus. Now to the nitty gritty. I played with the bedding a little more and hacked some off the...

    I thought a good clean up and plumbers solder would be they way to go to put a matching sight base on. Or would that wreck something?

    303 guy Sounds good but all You need to do is strap a coke bottle on the end of your gun. I seened in the movie shooter. And that’s why I paper patch too! I would have to see if it there is a legal to attach a bloop tube permanently a gun...

    Beautifully. Looks along the lines of a vickers with that one piece stock. I like things made when people still made things with skills. When I win the lottery!

    I think sometimes "rooks" was a generic term for poaching anything from pheasants to red deer. But I may have just read into it wrong.

    Scrounge dro’s are for girlies that can’t do math or use clocks. Not that I have ever used dro’s , but that’s what I have heard. Can’t see it helping with screw cutting. Specially to a shoulder. If you have a fancy lathe with chuck locks...

    Well I would have to cut back another 6 inches from the barrel which would make it ten. Then set back least 1/2 an inch and maybe a bit more for clean crisper rifling. That just leaves a couple of small bulge-Etts near the chamber end. That is...

    BBMF1 What sort of accuracy you talking of? I’ll be happy if I can get this one to shoot more consistent as it only 2 small and one larger bulge in the barrel. I could chop it back more to get past the 3rd bulge but I’ll have to measure it to...

    Good shooting with irons. Looks like it’s doing well for it’s age. Once you sort out your sloppy magazine and feeding issues you will be right. Bearing blue or indicator to help find the just right position of everything. Your cast bullets won’t...

    Well that tuner lasted the time sitting in the safe and taking it out to play. I must have picked up a burr or something and the soft aluminium gualled and froze. I shoulda put some never seize on it. Dohhh! Made this instead and I think it...

    Nice recovery set up. Shoots good without the tuner. Seems to like the match more. The tenex is stringing with more groups shot. Could be a loose nut behind the butt or fouling. Could be one of the 27 other variables. Have you checked your...

    What are you going to shoot with it? Twist rate 1:14" Would the cases work in a 32-30 magazine? Be nice if it came in left hand. I can see driving a solid projectile through the noggin of most things would work. Wasn’t it a Eskimo cartridge...

    What is the direction of your twist again? Just pondering when I used a bit of water pipe on the end of my gun and a screw thread. Apparently from what I could make out of it all. If you are on a top of a vibration isolation you get horizontal...
