    Images are great! Long ago I did win98 installs, made good money doing these custom, but I would make an image from a fully installed and configured OS, install all the utilities and programs I wanted, then go into device manager and remove...

    I gave up on commercial rubs long ago, they are all just too salty! My rub is SO simple it's pathetic! But good! Mix together equal parts Cinnamon, Curry Powder, Cayenne Pepper. That's IT! I pull the membrane off the back of my baby back...

    That was all very true before the internet and certainly before the pandemic. Just since 2020, a LOT has changed, a lot of people gravitated more to the internet than ever b/c they were stuck at home working from home, shopping from home, etc. ...

    Few songwriters have the gift of the gab like Ronnie Van Zant had, he brought life to the stories of Florida boys growing up tough, girls that shoulda known better, and embraced much of the same life that millions of fans could relate to. He just...

    You don't tell us much. What guns what caliber for starters. There are NUMEROUS threads covering the 45 ACP 1911 feeding there is a current thread where the OP PC'd boolits and had the same issues, his issue was solved by throating the barrel...

    My response was to JimB's post: Also, Sizing to the same diameter as throats leaves you no "wiggle" room for boolits that grow .0002" ~ .0004" while age hardening as they sit until they are used. It also leaves no room for any out of...

    This is still incorrect. Size to fit THE THROATS. Sizing smaller than the cylinder throats, i.e. randomly picking .452" and sizing to that dimension will insure the fact that you have leading and poor groups *IF* in fact your throats are .454." ...

    Forrest r, Your pin gauges, along with the seating depth of the H&G #68 tell me that your barrel was throated. As I use the term, not "Taylor throated" which is how I would describe the job DougGuy does. I suppose this was done at the factory. ...

    Well, can't argue with those groups for one, and for two, you are better off than most getting ANY bit of a .452" proud of the case mouth to plunk with the RO barrels. Jerry Keefer built the 9mm that won jeez how many matches? .100" parallel...

    This would make for a very fair comparison of throated vs. non throated. If you read what I wrote about the function of freebore as an alignment tool this facilitates a consistent engagement in the rifling which the abrupt entry into the rifling of...

    I replied in your other thread that you may benefit from a pound cast of your chamber and throat to get accurate measurements of what would be your maximum diameter boolit you could use, this would need to come before diving much deeper into what...

    It may benefit you to do a pound cast of the chamber and throat, this would tell you the maximum diameter boolit you could use without interference, your rifle is showing you that accuracy could be improved considerably by fitting the boolit to the...

    Without milling the frame window and increasing the OD of the cylinder, you are only gaining very little by moving the bolt notch between chambers since the outer wall thickness will be the same.
