Re: recent sales price of mummy wrapped Enfield No.4

I will hold on to that pair of #4s. As a Century distributor during the era of those imports, I had a good number of consecutive #pairs and at least one triple consecutive # set. I took stacks of these rifles to Texas gun shows selling one or many for $189.00 each. I remember only ONE buyer that bou...

Re: recent sales price of mummy wrapped Enfield No.4

What would a factory wrapped German K98 or a verified new M1 Garand go for? More than $1700 for sure

Would my consecutive # pair of those #4s bring a extra premium?

Re: Lee pistol crimp die questions HELP

Shortening the bottom of the inner sleeve will do what you want. Basically, you want it so that when the case, in the shell holder, contacts the bottom of the sleeve, the "fingers" on the collet portion should line up with the mouth of the case where you want the crimp to be. Adjusting the die up o...

Re: Lee pistol crimp die questions HELP

I have the lee 30 Luger factory crimp die. It is a collet type. As is it may not crimp you slightly shorter French ctg.

If you remove the .074” or more from either the bottom of the crimping collet of the die OR the top of your shell holder, it will crimp the French round as you desire.

Re: Lee pistol crimp die questions HELP

The collet type die would crimp enough...the “sizer type”? No

As I said earlier...if the 32ACP is a “sizer” like the 9mm?...forget it.

Re: Lee pistol crimp die questions HELP

The .312” 32 ACP would still have enough “squeeze” to crimp your .308” bullet. My 7.62x54R factory crimper does fine with .311” or .308” bullets.

Just use the washer/spacer trick. This assumes it is a collet type crimper. My Lee 9x19 factory crimper is not. My 30 Luger die is.

Easily sells for $1/rd or more. $350 for a 400rd can seems good to me.

Not too bad if it shoots well. I would have to do something about that castrated muzzle.

Re: 1891 Mosin Nagant rifle and Privi ammo 800 yards

It is regular math . He said 99.9% of HIS rifles had a .3105 bore , that means the sample group would have to be 1000 rifles to get the figure of 99.9 . 999 had .3105 , 1 did not . 999 + 1 = 1000 Roger...I was looking at YOUR post: 99.9% of 50 rifles....didn’t realize you were splitting hairs on Ro...

You have 1000 54r rifles ? 99.9% would mean 1 out of 1000 .
Show your work on that math... I figure if 99.9% of 1000 rifles have .311” bores that is 999 rifles. No?

Re: NM MILSURPS "Winter War" 800 yard match

Fun match but tough day for me. 2 hits out of 20 with the Finn M39. Plenty of close misses!

Maybe I should stick to hand grenades?
