Re: Powder Variations...Why?

The force required to squeeze the heavier bullet down the barrel takes a lot more force. Consider bike riding on level ground in an easy gear ... but now leave it in that gear and go up a steep hill. How much extra force would you need to provide or feel in your legs to maintain a decent speed? Said...

Re: Hi from the UK

Dayum, Pittsburg and a divorce - bollacks is all I can say, sorry the former territory put you through the wringer! No idea why that Anshutz won’t shoot - maybe scrub barrel really clean & try other ammo? Maybe even remove from stock, put butt on ground & reseat, forward action bolt first, starting ...

Yes that rifle is so nice it deserves a cup and a place on the wall as a looker. Maybe a rubber or iron cast dummy Mills grenade too!

Re: A decent priced .312 bullet to buy...........

Cast gas-checked and/or powder coated, from places like Gardner’s Cache (check his sizing) at 15 to 18-cents each or so delivered ... is hard to beat! My Mosin prints them all inside the 9-ring SR black bullseye using them at the 200-yard matches! But of course for the match, I have to shoot them of...

Re: Cases cracking in type 30

Yes, sounds to me you are pushing the shoulder back too far when full-length sizing, then it is expanding and moving forward to fill the generous chamber. This ‘pulls’ the brass from the rim area and causes the case separation. Some, myself included, use a hook type tool to help identify any ‘step’ ...

Re: Old west Bullet mould, for Vetterli??

I just put bullets in a ziplok bag & tumble w/ a squirt of Lee liquid Alox, then set them on a piece of wax paper or plastic to dry.
