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: Sling Repair

I have an old-school shoe repair shop in my town with a leather-smith that loves projects like that. I know shoe-repair shops are a vanishing breed, but it might be worth an try if you have one nearby.

Re: My Remington Tac-14

I admit to being an ammo nerd, and really enjoy matching up weapons and their loads to properly form a "system" for whatever niche is needed. Here's a close-up of the rounds mentioned above. All three deliver their payload at about 1200 fps, more than enough for the close-range encounters this syste...

Re: My Remington Tac-14

And yes, I couldn't resist picking up a tactical scabbard that can be slung over the back. Pictured is my theoretical load-out of choice--a Federal 9 pellet 00 buck in the chamber, followed by two PMC 28 pellet #4 bucks, followed by three of the NSI Minibuck six-pellet 00 bucks. Say what you will ab...

My Remington Tac-14

This may not be the most popular type of firearm for the surplus aficionado, but I have to admit that I couldn't resist purchasing a Tac-14 from Classic a few months back. Here it is shown with my other 870. At first, I bought it simply as a fun toy and because it scratched an itch I've had since se...

Re: In praise of the S&W Model 10

Great gun! I'm shooting the heck out of my newly acquired M1917 Brazilian contract S&W and it's making me realize I'm going to need a Mod 10. BTW, I have the exact holster as you're showing there. "Hunter" brand? Zieg I'd love to stumble into a S&W 1917, definitely on my "would like to have" list. ...

Re: In praise of the S&W Model 10

Top condition compared to most you see now a-days . Around here you see those that are that nice going for about $400 or more. Great find. Thanks! I was happy to get it at that price, because as you mention they seem to generally go for more than that unless in relatively poor condition. This isn't...

Re: fnh cz27

400 sounds reasonable for a shooter-grade. I paid less than that for mine, but that was many years ago and their values have jumped considerably since then. The "weak and gummy" slide action wouldn't bother me personally, as I would anticipate having to clean out many years of gunk and residue, and ...

In praise of the S&W Model 10

I recently was hit with the bug to own a Model 10, and acquired this one for $255. It's a late "C" number, a 10-6 around 50 years old just like me. I'll admit that 20 or 30 years ago, I held no desire to own a humble .38 revolver. I cut my handgun teeth shooting the 1911A1 and Beretta M9 in the Mari...

I shoot mine with reduced loads, and enjoy having it in my collection. Like you, I don't like the idea of having rifles I can't shoot. It's a fun and unique piece, and the looks have really grown on me. Where did you get your loading information? And everyone, thanks for the information. I detailed...

Re: 6.5x52 Carcano - Shell holder of choice?

FWIW, I have used the Lee shellholder exclusively and haven't had a problem. I can't say if it's a factor in my success, but I also use Lee case lube when resizing- a dab between the thumb and forefinger spun along the length of the case neck and body (skipping the shoulder), with the excess then sc...

Hi all - looking for load data for 8x56R using H4895. 208gr SP bullets.
I use H4895 in my 8x56r loads. With 208 grain bullets, 42.6 grains shoots well and chrono'd at 2249 fps from my long M95, For comparison, the 208 grain factory FMJ PRVI load was 2318 fps from the same rifle.
