Re: new caliber help

The drawback is the the brass. I tried one with shortened Prvi Partizon 303 British brass and found the neck area for the 40-50 to be way to thick. Never did get the thing to reliably seal the neck and was left with so-so accuracy, ten shot groups usually had 2 or 3 fliers. I heard Winchester 30-40 ...

Re: 1000 yard sporting scope

Don't go cheap if you are a serious shooter. The cheap scopes are lacking in one area, the most critical one, that being quality glass. Do yourself a favor, attend a long range match and ask the competitors for a looksee through their scopes, a few looks will show you the difference I'm talking abou...

Re: New 1886 Winchesters in .45/90

The new 86's will take any of the loads listed for the 90 by powder makers. The design prohibits going past their recommended loads. That said, the max published loads will pound your shoulder into mush post haste.

Shucks, I guess I'll put that thought in the same column with the orientation of primer anvils :roll: .

Plastic wad orientation

This thought crossed my mind and I wish to ask if there has been any discussion about which way the plastic wads should be facing when seated. I'm thinking the sharp/cut edge should be facing down and the rounded/extruded edge facing up against the bullet's base. It maybe a waste of time but just cu...

Re: Current Lyman Postell mold quality

For the little difference in money I would go with the RCBS molds. Very excellent machining and metal quality. If only shooting black powder the correct lead to tin ratio is more critical that bore/groove fitment, obtruration is your friend. Good luck.

Re: How Clean is Clean?

Was the barrel producing clean patches before the last shooting event. If yes then continue cleaning, if not then a examination with a bore scope may be necessary to see the condition of the bore. Pits and machining marks can hold a bunch of fouling.

Re: Rifle Cleaning Q's

Don't worry about the crude migrating into the action when shooting black. Patch the barrel with a water soluble solution until it's clean and lightly oil, that's it.

I'm guessing around $1500-2000, be reminded that I am a shooter rather than a collector.

Re: Declicking a Fecker or Unertl

That is an interesting idea also. I like it. But I like my idea better. At least so far. Brent, the only problem I see with your method is the possibility of the plastic giving up during a big match and the clicker goes to making a sound :shock: . As paranoid as I am about such things occuring I wo...

Re: Declicking a Fecker or Unertl

With the Fecker a small drill one size larger than the detent to cut the detent away could also work and a ball bearing under the former detent hole for the clicks when and if needed. The Unertls may require a little more study. Another excellent idea. Thanks. Wayne Thank you Wayne, if you ever run...

Re: Declicking a Fecker or Unertl

I've never seen a schematic of the mount to know the internals, maybe a call to Parsons or one of the other scope shops would be a wise move, good luck.

Re: Declicking a Fecker or Unertl

Removing the L shaped piece stops the clicking but it then allows the base pad of the micrometer to turn in it's contact with the scope tube resulting in false readings. Better to remove/flip the clicker and leave the L shaped piece intact, JMHO.

Re: Sight Question

Back to the adjustable front sight, why hasn't someone built a traverse rail that the front sight could ride on with a detent stop on each side to give quick adjustments, thus doing away with the screw. The rail could come in various lengths for however much sight change on would think practical. Be...
