    Good 5.56 tends to penetrate walls less than 9mm or 12-gauge buck.

    Let's go back to basics. Your first job is to duplicate the Barnes load. Why? Because it is a known entity to you. You know how that load shoots in your gun. Duplicate it first so that you can...

    This thread makes me think about a stupid mad scientist idea.

    Sometimes I do tissue cell cultures in agarose gels. Maybe I should just grow masses of tissues in agar long enough to get a big block...

    I'm still a 5Shot SME for 1911. Wait is long, so I'd definitely try JMCK or Tenicor in the interim if I didn't already have an SME.

    In a perfect world you should have three overlapping patterns. Step wise:

    1) You zero the sights with chosen slugs at 25y. At that distance you will hopefully be able to put 3-5 in your 2"...

    I would be willing to wager that >90% of them are foster slugs from Winchester, Remington, or Federal, 3/4 ounce if 20-gauge, 1-ounce if 12-gauge, and that most of those were of the 1600fps varieties...

    20 Brennekke's have better sectional density than 12s, which is why folks tend to prefer them for bear defense. But the only 20-gauge slug that has great accuracy at 50y is the Federal Tru-Ball...

    I thought about that that - my cursory understanding of the Mauser action is that a lighter striker spring may result in pierced primers, because the striker is so hefty (less spring tension lets it...

    No. They are listed as "in stock" - but I have no idea if that is reality. And I'm a bit frustrated with them in terms of communication.

    "Hiatus" measured in hours I suppose.

    That pitting seems fairly light overall. I would say from what I can see, yes, it can be corrected. Either by grinding it out a bit more or through application of a deeper (thicker) blue. I'd go to...

    For mag tube clamp - I like heat shrink wrap - like you'd use on wires. It is highly heat resistant and you can slide it over the tines of a clamp and clamp it down.

    Finally got the action in today. I was pleased to see that it has already been refinished once or twice in its history and that the cartouche on the action isn't particularly fancy or deep. So, I...

    Man, I really kind of want to do this. But I'd need to get the barrel uncanted on my 336W first. Or just mount an optic (it shoots straight, but the front sight ain't straight, because...Marlin)....

    The App is great for this, in fact this is more or less what it is made for. It takes a bit of fiddling to get setup, but once you do, you can easily swage a thousand or more pieces of brass in a...
