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: p14 rifle

Be careful with the brass that will not chamber. If fired in a SMLE they may be too long and separate at the base if full length resized and fired again. A common problem.

Re: My VZ-52

They shoot very well. Eject to the left,which is great for me. The original ammo is the most corrosive I've ever seen. The rifles operating system must be torn down and cleaned in hot soapy water to protect the barrels outside as it is the "cylinder" so to speak. These rifles have the fasted deployi...

Re: M41 restoration

I was looking at the "seam" and had a thought that I used to make Knots in a pine board that had lost it's own. Harbor Freight sells a clear 10-minute epoxy that will take an oil based wood stain very well. I found a small 1/2 pint can of Minwax Stain & Sealer that matched the wood's color. I used a...

Re: Reloadind 30-06 ap

There is no real secret,it is just the bullet must be stable in flight. After 600 feet, the bullet is stable and with the AP core ( Tungsten or hardened steel) the core will carry a tremendous amount of energy since it will not shatter or break when it strikes a hard target. It will either stick int...

Re: Reloadind 30-06 ap

Start with 47.5 grains. 52 is max. The AP bullet with its machine turned core is very accurate. If you plan to do any kind of penetration test,don't waste you time with any targets closer than 200 yards. The bullet is not stable. At 200 plus yards the bullet will sail through most steels and even AR...

Re: 8mm Carcano

Abby-so-Lutly save to shoot. You CANNOT blow up a Carcano. Many,many have tried and Failed. I have several 8mm Carcano's in my collection and shoot them all, and I'm talking hundreds of times. They are quite accurate,at least as accurate as the 7.35 versions. Recoil is not bad at all as the really s...

Re: SMLE .22 trainer

These rifles are well made and quite accurate. With good ammo they will hold their own with the best of them (open sights). Mine has a very nice trigger. The magazine will hold almost 100 fired cases which makes the range officers happy to not have to sweep up! 22A.JPG 22E.JPG 22H.JPG 22F.JPG 50 yar...

Re: I bought a lemon

Try this to be sure there is really a dangerous problem. Load up 8 grains of Bullseye or 12 grains of Unique and fill the case with cornmeal. TP Paper wad on top. Fire the "blank". This will "fireform" the case to the chamber and bolt face. Measure/eyeball the fired case next to a resized/new case. ...

The long rifle is worse. All the powder is burned!
Cock the bolt BEFORE you open it,it really makes it easy to operate,unless your doing rapid firing.

Re: Stock Cleaning Question/Help!

A tip I've been using to clean the grim and crud from stocks for decades is Goop Hand Cleaner,the paste not the grit type. Put a large glob of it on 0000-steel wool and rub the stock lightly. The goop will remove the grim off in about 60 seconds or faster. Rinse with warm water when done and allow t...
