Re: CZ-52 Rifle "SHE" 7.62x45

That's 'on the table'. My concern is that my heat gun is a serious one, fully capable of toasting the wood. I WILL use it if/when I think it's necessary AND I can control it.

"Cool gun"... Don't...

CZ-52 Rifle "SHE" 7.62x45

I recently found a "New-in-the-box" Sako P94s and purchased it. :rolleyes: In order to finance that purchase, since I decided to stop buying firearms, :yes: I am selling a couple of my milsurps. One...

Re: Digital powder measures

Reasonable logic, for my two-cents-worth. Please let us know how it works for you.

Holy Cow!

Last March my house in Utah had a bad flood. ($60,000+ in damage.) The severity of the damage was primarily a function of the fact that the house was unoccupied. Last month, it flooded again!...

An interesting point:

Think about being tortured, stoned, or flogged because you held to a "conspiracy theory", when in fact, you knew your "theory" was NOT true. Who would do that? Who would choose to DIE for a lie or...

Re: Back to Swaged, Jacketed, 8mm Bullets

Got to looking at the .51 cal. swaging and since that was such a positive experience, I decided I'd make a few more. :D Had a dickens of a time finding the blasted pointing die that I made. Finally,...

Re: Back to Swaged, Jacketed, 8mm Bullets

Sadly, when I got them, they WEREN'T 8mm, they were for .30 caliber. When I pressed them on the fact that I had called to verify and was told "yes, they are for 8mm bullets" they retreated to "they...

Re: Digital powder measures

Thanks for chiming in, David. Obviously, I thought you used one.

My experience is that using a digital scale does NOT speed up the process of reloading. Personally, I have no interest in speeding...

Re: Digital powder measures

Welcome to THL, Bruce. Nice to see new blood that actually posts!

I have used digital scales for reloading for over 20 years. I like 'em, but I'm not "married" to them. I DO NOT have any...

Re: .338x.284 Win Project

Among the little things that have come up with this project is the fact that the necks on the Swiss brass, once necked up to accept a .338 caliber bullet, are so thin that they don't get sized small...

Re: .338x.284 Win* Load Workup

Just ordered 8 lb of BL-C2 at a cost if $248.50 delivered (to Missouri). That's $31.06/lb. Not a smokin deal, but $32.50 of that was shipping and PayPal fees.:frown

Such is the 'way of the world'...

Re: .338x.284 Win* Load Workup

I didn't have the QuickLOAD-predicted muzzle velocity when I made the above picture. It is 2744 for the 225 Accubond. That's only 3f/s slower than the observed of 2747.

Re: .338x.284 Win Project

1) Rail tweaking for the Ackley shoulder, and 2) very little room, (if any), to seat a 'long' 225g bullet, "out" due to the length of the case relative to the magazine. If I'm going to have to seat...

Re: .338x.284 Win Project

If you're referring to the reamer post with your "Gone With the Wind" comments, that was back in April.

Re: .338x.284 Win* Load Workup

I got to the range to check out the load that worked with the 225 Hornady on the 225 AccuBond. Same charge: 56.6g of BL-C2. Same seat depth: 0.24" of shank. Same case: Frontier 7.5x55 Swiss. Same...
