Re: 1917 Eddy Stone

In reality the amount of lands on an original 1917 barrel is 5. A 150 gr. bullet will most likely shoot best in them as this is what the system was designed for, 150gr flat base bullets. The do not shoot boat tails well.

Re: RC DOU 42

The dot matrix serial number is done by the importer. It is now required to be on all imports by BATF. This is now the serial number sent to BATF for their files. It tracks all imported firearms. Just another case of Big Brother watching.

Re: 8 May, did most forget?

When my dad passed in 2000. The VA told me that WW2 vets were passing at 2000 a day on average. So I felt that my dad went with a lot of other hero's from WW2. Sorely missed for 20 years.

Re: Ammo is getting scarce.................

The cheapest price for 5.56 or .223 right now I have found is just about $400 per thousand. One place is selling Wolf steel case for $450 a case plus shipping. Good thing I reload.

Re: Auto Ordinance M1 Carbine

Good for you. Nice to hear someone has a bit of luck with an AO and using that junk Russian ammo too. Too many don't and that's sad considering just how much money they spend.

Re: 7.65 French Long.

I am surprised that they do not load it with the correct 85 gr. bullet instead of the 110gr. 30 carbine bullet. But then again it's cheaper to get the carbine bullets then the correct ones from the likes of Sierra or Hornady.

Re: 7.65 French Long.

Those that are using .32 auto dies should contact Lee about their dies. They have been making them in batches of late and the correct shell holder is included. Works with the Starline brass as well as the French brass. Oh and the Hornady 90 gr. .309 diameter hp is an excellent bullet for the French ...

Re: SAD NEWS

What is happening in Virginia is a repeat of what has happened in New Zealand. The Prime Minister is a hard nosed socialist who was anti- gun to start with. She used the shooting there to ramrod the new law into being. The courts there are useless to stop her agenda. The buy back program is in full ...

Re: Savage 32acp

I know this is a little late but the model shown is a 1917 not the earlier 1907 but still the same basic design just very minor changes.

Re: 7.65 French Long.

Well I am using a set of Lee dies in 7.65 French Long. The shell holder is the standard one that came with the dies and has worked fine. I use one round taken out of the box at random and set the seating. Then I pulled the rounds and used them in the Starline brass. But the first thing I did was to ...

Re: 7.65 French Long.

I've had three boxes of original French long from the early 1950's for years. Of course none of it would go bang so I pulled a full box and used the powder and bullets in new Starline cases. It made some very nice ammo and it shot very well with an excellent group. So two more boxes to go and some n...

Re: Jap 7.7 Ammo...Safe to Shoot?

The only difference between the 7.7 rifle round and the 7.7 machinegun round was the semi rim for the machinegun round. The specs for the ammo was the same. Same powder charge, same bullets and velocities. Now if you want you can add in the third 7.7 round made for the British Lewis gun used by the ...

Re: Berry 311 123gr plated bullets

If you use them don't dive then at top velocity or close to factory. They seem strip coming out the rifle. Had them key hole on the target at 25 yards. Its not a true jacket, just a plating and the thinner the plating the worse the performance. Try them about 1600 fps. I have tried them in SKS and a...

Re: FB VIS RADOM all matching

That is a nice pickup for sure. They are very good pistols. I bought one years ago that had an original Polish slide on a German frame. It all matched number wise too. It was a vet bring back. Wish I still owned it today as it was reliable and accurate.
