  1. I had a friend

    who was an engineer at Kennametal. I asked him what he used to thread barrels with and he said Tool Steel. Said he got tired of chip balls with carbide. I had gotten a chip ball with carbide...

    Eric Chamino

    has a youtube in which he interviews Speedy. Speedy mentioned the warehouse in it. In a no wind environment, very lite loads would give tiny groups that out in the real world would be disaster. I...

    It's an interesting read

    however, a number of things have changed over time. One thing I noticed I've never seen anyone do is to position their rifle with the stock midway between the front of the stock and the action. Might...

    Here's a couple of solutions;

    Open the ass of that chamber up a little or take a couple of thou off the butts of the cases that won't fit. A couple of winters ago a poster put up a picture on here of a cutter he had made to trim...

    So here's something that is always an issue

    BARRELS.

    No matter what rifle one works with the rest of the gun is ultimately only as good as the barrel on it so it's a big system. The right lot of pellets is another issue when one gets down...

    Years ago

    I did up a short 30-284 to shoot in the Hunter class in IBS. It was the minimum case capacity size when the hunter class had that restriction. It didn't do one thing different than the 30-44's I had...

    Watched the Youtube

    of a tour of BAT Actions this morning. Interesting stuff, almost all CNC. Surprised they do their own heat treat, or at least some of it. The shop was smaller than I imagined it would be.

    A local dealer

    has Varget on his shelf. I called him a month ago and asked if he had any Varget. He said he had some coming in the next day. I went over the next day. It was $59.95 per pound. I had paid $39.95 per...

    Interesting indeed

    I personally wouldn't part with $1450. for a Savage but I guess it's all in the eye of the beholder. I like the concept. I have a Swiss straight pull that works and shoots very well.

  12. A friend has

    a Hardinge Chucker, I think it's called, with a threading rig on it that is a cam that pulls the tool way far away from the work when it gets to where it is suppose to stop. Slickest outfit I've ever...

    This likely the new price

    going forward and probably what this "Shortage" is all about. Prices never seem to go down once makers see what people will pay for things. Just look at freight rates, for instance.

    I read

    on a news feed today a lot of the medical people (in Texas) refusing it are doing so for political reasons, no further explanation. I think production time is the pretty simple reason for in line....

    I have a physician friend

    who has had his first shot and is having the second in a few days. I'm 76. I have some underlying situations. I'm a risk taker, always have been. I don't think the world is flat.

    My interest

    in cartridges has come to efficiency and barrel life over bigger and less barrel life. and see absolutely no point in shooting beyond 300 yards.

    Hi Ken

    Haven't seen you on here in awhile. I asked Greg Palman if you had been on here recently. Hope all is well.

    and use the Black cutting oil. I think it's the difference in the composition of the steel in a particular barrel because not all of them do it. A more annoying issue for me is the ring like...

    Bullets

    are long gone before a recoil pad is going to cause any problem. I see more and more of them all the time on Score rifles. All mine have the softest ones I could find.

    I seem to recall

    some discussion about some sort of ring die that pushes the base of cases in and restores the primer pocket fit. Perhaps someone with a better memory can chime in.
