Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Nice Parker Hale PH5A aperture sight, SMLEs

EDIT: Link deleted, to comply w/ site mgt request. Complete with screws and the spring to mount it. If for sale here in the US directly, I’ve seen them go for 2X the price. Yes, it ships from New Zealand, but I bought one from the same Seller and got it no problems. BONUS - This one has the Merit-ty...

Re: First Carbine!

FWIW the Hornady Critical Defense ammo in M1 Carbine loading tested hotter than 357 loads, but forget where I read it recently; maybe Gun Tests magazine or the AR/M4 forums.

Re: Using a 308 Win Crimp die on 30-06

Sure, or add washer that slips over the case when it is in the shellholder, thickness same as difference in case lengths between the 2. Or washer under the die if you screw the die in/out for caliber changes.

Re: Alliant 2400 With Cast Bullets

For 30-cal class cartridges, per C. E. Harris’ famous loading advice called “The Load”, I’ve never had any reason for anything but 16-grns of Alliant 2400. I myslef play w/ the overall length and use a Lee factory crimp die and get nickle-sized groups at 50-yards. Not much worse at 100, less how goo...

Re: 1944 Husqvarna m96 w/ Andersson diopter

Swedes do shoot! I used to handload using 4350 powder and I would get less than 1” groups, 5-shots of 139-grain bullets right off the lands, at 100 yards, standard sight for the bent bolt M38, benched of course.

Re: 1944 Husqvarna m96 w/ Andersson diopter

Nice! Is that the ‘full wrap-around’ or clamp-on 1st model?

The drill/tap diopter sights alone go for $130 @ Century Arms.

Re: Aguila Super Extra .22 LR ammunition review

I think it was Shooting Times who did a big test report of 16 or so 22LR loads and they too were surprised that that same HV Aquila 22LR Ammo tested REALLY well. Best of the HV loads IIRC.

Re: Just some underwood goodness

Nice!

I always dismissed them ... due to the rather anemic loading, but was just reading up recently on the excellent terminal performance of the Hornady Critical Defense loading for the M1 Carbine. I bet my Uncle sure wishes he had had some when he was at Chosin!
