    Have you polished the chambers using 0000 steel wool and oil? It's possible that a steady diet of 22 Shorts were fudd in the Ruger and they formed a ring at the mouth. This ring is grabbing the Long...

    The press would accept die sets. The dies are made in various calibers. The presses do not come in different calibers. Die sets screw into presses.

    That looks like a lead ring. If it's bulged, you will be able to feel it with a patch. Rings and even bulges are more common in rimfire barrels than people think. If the barrel shot ok before, it...

    Texas ain't got building codes. Some cities do. We boast about minimal regulations. Unfortunately consumer protection laws are few. Money talks and bullshit walks. Our land is one of milk and honey.
