Guess what I found inside of a cartridge?

Years ago I bought 50,000 rounds of component .303 Britt from the Indian / China wars. In one case I found under a loose bullet a case filled full of Black Tar Opium. Some soldiers stash.That set a precedent that all loose bulleted rounds were to be inspected.You never know what you might find in a ...

Re: HIT N' MISS

The best powder to try today would be PB shotgun powder. It is sold in 1/2 pound cans.. It is very fast burning and "may" obdurate the wood plug into the minnie ball base.

Re: Reloading 30-40 Krag

A flat base,round nose heavy bullet is the way to go. I shoot the 220's out to 800 yards and they shoot very well. There are so many loads to choose from on the web that you should be able to find one that will shoot well for you. " The Rail Puncher" cartridge is under appreciated. The rifle is stro...

I bought a thousand rounds and the seller would contact me on shipping charges. I asked for Fed-X and got UPS inste...

Re: Clay Plug In Minnie Balls

I would make a plug and let it harden. Then smack it with a hammer to see how hard it really is. The plug should be hard to shatter with a light blow. The plug must leave the cavity after the bullet is free of the muzzle and has done its job of obdurating the bullet into the rifling. For accuracy ea...

Re: Greek military rifles

They are great rifles and if the Internet is correct,they were the most expensive military rifle/carbines to make in their day. Finding a rifle with a nice shootable bore is hard these days. The carbines always seem to be in much better condition than the rifles.

Re: FN49 Egyptian sniper rifle

Shoot it! The scope was made for this type rifle. And,there is a scope company that has very fair prices to repair any problems that may happen.
My club members shoot some very nice and not common sniper rifles and only one time was there ever a scope problem and it was that way when he bough it.

We have a shooter form Portugal who is flying in to shoot with us on July 1,2018, on his way to see Ian celebrate the 4TH of July shoot. We will have him shoot long range as well and it will be a first for him. It should be fun.
