    Did they show the same pressure signs in the original 22LR chambering? If not, that does indicate that pushing a jacketed 224" bullet down a .222" barrel does increase pressure enough to possibly create issues? I have never done a 22 Mag on a...

    Blasters are blasters period. Accuracy minded people are not the same types and shooting a 10/22/AR/AK doesn't not turn them into blasters. Some blasters do learn about accuracy an develop in good shooter. I have never met an accuracy minded per...

    I have used edge or face clamps for 45 plus years and none of them look like the Redding/SAECO Double “C” Clamp that per "Redding was designed as a convenient way to secure the SAECO lubrisizer to a bench top." They look like these: ...

    I still use them mostly for measures. I tend to collect presses and they are very handy when I want to move the measure next to the press I am using.

    I concur 100%. For the most part data is available for a very similar cartridges so you really do have to lack common sense to randomly select truly dangerous combinations. That being said lots of folks do some very strange and dangerous things. ...

    From what I have read some of the parts are not interchangeable with true Hi-Powers so it is more of a Hi-Power type. Depending on what you are looking for that may or may not be a good thing. Just something to be aware of.

    Yes, but that relies on common sense. That seems to be very rare nowadays. Also contacting the loading manual ballisticians can be very helpful. They tend to have thousands of loads on file that are not in the books. I have done a couple...

    In 1982 when dad had his open heart surgery he used his buddies 1892 25-20 to take a very nice whitetail buck. His surgeon stated it was too soon to use his 30-06 so he borrowed the 25-20. Some years later I borrowed the same rifle simply because...

    Currently 17 HMR if expensive like all ammo. I shoot a lot of 17 HMR so the most cost-effective method PRE-SHORTAGE was to order in volume thru Midsouth. If I waited for sales $8.99 per box was the average. I would order a minimum of one case...

    Your linked article for Ford says they will go all electric in Europe. Maybe they'll be the only truck manufacturer in the states that continue to make ICE vehicles. They'd sure do well. 13 years is an awfully long time. We might give up this...

    311 = Bullet diameter 165= bullet weight. Of course the weight can vary a smidge depending on the alloy.

    That depends on application. I love the several that I own for shooting prairie dogs for under 125 yards. Zero wind days you can stretch that by quite a bit. For edible game they tend to be too destructive unless you use FMJ's. With the...

    Normally that is true. With the current shortages the dealers have a take it or leave it attitude. If you don't buy it the next person will. People are paying over list just to get them. Hard to make deals under those circumstances. Let's...
