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: SOME THOUGHTS ON ACCURACY & OTHERS

IN PASSING - - Here is something that I found out years ago but this is the first time that I have seen where anyone else has realized it and published it. Just a week ago I ordered another set of five on eBay for 3 $. Now of course one can only guess of the quality of the ‘Carbide’, but to me it do...

Can one imagine all of the apple pie, apple pandowdy, apple sauce cake and dried apples with Splenda from an 18 inch apple tree. We have already picked three 5 gallon buckets from it. Oh yes, apple pancake syrup, apple jelly and apple leather.

Re: Hurricane Michael

I just mentioned in a posting that I haven’t seen much US flag flying locally, and then I realized that it is generally illegal to fly the US Flag in the town of Pagosa Springs, either written or unwritten, I don’t know. Now one may think that this is ridicules, but hang on a minute. Just a month ag...

The top picture was the first day he came around and a couple of days later he came back. Notice that I was a little apprehensive, but we became good friends for the rest of th...

Scan.BMP.jpg And we do have snow - this is just 180 from the other photo. That is the local piece of the Great Divide behind the house. That is our house right in the middle. As I said, no we can't fish in the gulf, but we do have a bunch of other critters. They are all friendly except for the moun...

Re: Hurricane Michael

A few years ago my wife decided to start flying the flag. This is her third one after two have worn out. I think that this may be an only one flying in a five mile radius – maybe more. This view is a more docile view of the area. To our back is the Great Divide at 12,000 plus feet. A neighbor lady a...

LEE MENTING - Every time I do it I get an egg-shell shape cavity, that is to say, the bullet across the gate is larger in diameter than the other direction by at least one thousandth, and usually more like one and a half. I assume the reason is that the grit builds up in the joint of the mold. But.....

Re: SOME THOUGHTS ON ACCURACY & OTHERS

Mosin Nagant bolt polishing --- I find most if not a lot of YouTubes can be other than useful – miss-leading, with no merit and even wrong. But here is one that I would say ‘can’ be useful to probable everyone here. I say useful not on just the Mosin bolt but in general each and every bolt out there...

I think that my Mosin may look cool with a stock like this - remember I have only 100 invested in mine. I have a bent bolt and rear sights to add. Work up a good load with good bullets, why not? Just would have to find the time.

Some may see them for 349.00 and think they should grab them....and some do. Notice how truthful they wanted to be, (us...

Just my observations – Someone mentioned that the membership of the forum is so low...and participation is less. I just counted the membership with ‘Zero’ postings and got 534, or close to, with what looks like 1022 total. Now why is this so low? I can offer my two cents worth. But, but...I am sure ...

Okay, the Mauser K98 is known for its...what...its smooth operation. Any of that is all made possible by its bolt finish and some of the inside of the receiver ‘finish’. The main component of ‘smoothness’ is the compromise in the strength of the firing pin spring, period. It doesn’t make any differe...

Scan-001.BMP.jpg I was just watching on TV about TET 68 in Vietnam and it brought back some memories. Were any of you guys there? This was me a couple of nights before TET 68 started and the bottom photo was about the second night. At midnight the first night of TET the front lines were just about ...
