Re: Cressent butt pad to lengthen LOP?

Emmett,

Go to the ASSRA forum (https://www.assra.com/cgi-bin/yabb/YaBB.pl) and post the same request. I'll bet you'll get a bunch of suggestions. Beautiful rifle BTW. I meant to check it out at the match but forgot. I also shoot an original Stevens 44.

Are bench top cross sticks legal for 22BPCR? I thought I had read somewhere a couple years ago but now can't find where I saw it.
They are legal. The rules were changed last year to allow the use of bench-top sticks.

Reloading screw up

I was in the middle of swaging out peened case lips using a Lyman neck sizing die and a pin gauge. It’s a good technique which you can read about at http://www.texas-mac.com/Removing_Case_Peened_LIp_Edge.html. About half way through 200 cases everything was going smooth until the necks came out of t...

Re: Finding the barrel vibration sweet spot

I should really just subscribe to the magazine. I'm interested in the topic here. As an FYI, the formatting is all messed up - at least for mobile phones. Most of the graphics are pasted over top of the text, so there's a lot you can't read. I'm not sure if that can be remedied, but I thought I'd m...

Re: An interesting simple casting experiment

How is this possible? Inquiring minds want to know! Anyone....? Ferris....? Very small voids perhaps...? Forensic review of my lighter than usual bullets usually revealed a void.. bob It's not a void issue. My best guess is it's the result of the mould expanding due to the increased temperature. I ...
