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.

Re: 1917 Movie

There seems to be a lot of hype on this movie but did anyone else think it's good? I may go see it for $5 on Tue. I would think the Lost Battalion is much better. Or for sure Paths to Glory, All Quite on the Western Front and Joyeux Noel.

Re: New here

Man you missed the heyday of surplus at the turn of this century. But they are fun, just that prices have gone nuts. Welcome to the surplus shooting world of collecting. Best time at gun shows is when one of us old birds drop dead and the family or wife dumps everything that was saved and collected ...

Re: Movie 2018, TANKERS, Russian

The dvd T34 at Walmart and Amazon has English subtitles. It was cheep, like $13 for a old fashion DVD, if you go blue ray, it's much more. I am not sure if you can still buy a regular dvd player? Most are blue ray or that other format. Heck, I just got a somewhat, new, normal DVD from a friend that ...

Re: 7.65 French Long.

I sent RCBS a note that they should reissue the .32 French long special shell holder that Midway sold because it fits the Starline brass so well. WE shall see the reply?

Re: 7.65 French Long.

Thank YouTuna, some more interesting results with Starline brass: I do not, nor do I cast. It would probably be beneficial, but there's only so much time. A small update: I slugged the bore...it measures .313"! So those .312" bullets will nearly inevitably provide better accuracy anyway. I bought 10...

Re: Carcano Bolt Will Not Disassemble

Kroil & some Kerosene mixed together 50/50. Let the piece soak a week. PB blaster tends to dissolve the rust. Use a fine brass or steel brush to get the surface rust off. PB Blaster really stinks, but fill a baby food jar from a spray can and let the cocking piece sit a week. Wire brush the lose rus...

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. Tuna what OAL are you using with ...

Hi everyone I'm new here and I just jumped on a M57 but I'm trying to gauge a the year it would have been made. It has the C prefix but it is stamped with 97 under the retaining clip and has no crest on the slide. Not a 1965, military used Tok. More recent and a great shooter due to a mint barrel.T...
