Re: Renaissance Wax for protecting metal and wood

I "use" to use it, but heard about Tom's "1/3rd Mix" wax on these forums and I like it MUCH better!

FWIW my collectibles (originals) date from the late 1500s thru the US Civil War to WW2.

Re: High Point 45 Cal Carbine

Everyone was really looking forward to these until they decided not to use 1911 magazines. Still think that was a really dumb move on their part. They PURPOSELY designed their own magazine such that it would be 10-rnds or less ONLY, as this rifle was specifically designed around or to be exempt fro...

Re: Reloading Problem with Latvian 7.62 NATO Cases

Doesn’t help your semis, but sounds like they’d be super as neck-sized only for the bolt gun.

Re: Lee Enfield SMLE No. 1 MKIII .22 LR Conversion Unit

FWIW I have one and LOVE it! Besides the admittedly COOL factor of shooting my SMLE indoors, I am getting very good accuracy out of it, as good as any non-match 22LR is capable of anyway. I take care to wrap the liner at 3-points (both ends & middle) w/ teflon tape to ensure a ‘snug’fit in the bore....

Pictures of bore/rifling using $15 LED endoscope

FYI, my twin brother took these pictures of the bore of his 45-70 Trapdoor using one of those LED 5.5mm endoscopes that are sold on the likes of eBay and Amazon. They come with a 5' or longer cable that plugs into the USB port of your computer or laptop. There is a CD included with it, that you need...

Re: Mosin values

I've used LEE collet dies quite a bit.
Me too, they are great for bolt rifles. He’s never reloaded, so I was Trying to help him do it on the cheap. But maybe I will just get him dies (and he can get the bullets) and I will load them on my press for him.
