Re: FS: Nikon Field Scope ED78 w/ 20-60x Angled Eyepiece

I have a feeling that a Underhammer rifle made by William Billinghurst might be in the works :D

Re: 35/40 Lucas.

Ian I have three recently build rifles that have XX premium barrels, a .22, .40 and a 45 the .40 I got last fall and all three rifles shoot very well. I would not think twice using Douglas barrels.

Re: New Alloy

Both bullets were patched right at bore diameter.
Yes I know that the 130 yard target is to close but I don't have any ware to shoot past 200 till I get to a match and man do I hate testing loads during a match.

Re: New Alloy

TNX. Fisher and Bruce. Don I would think that the .45's would bump up more then the .40's because of the heavier weight and powder charge then the .40's had but it is not the case, just the opposite happened. The warm January thaw wiped out my test material :) but more is coming in the next couple d...

Re: New Alloy

Bruce, No there is not much interest in this sort of stuff and I don't even know why I take up band with posting it The mine set is one alloy for every bullet and to an extent in most cases it's alright, but the .40 calibers and .45 calibers react differently with the same alloy mixes be it a GG, PP...

Re: New Alloy

It was decent this morning it warmed up to 45 degrees with about a 15 mph wind so I took little Missy out and shot 11 rounds one for fouling the barrel and ten at center with this alloy and I must say Missy and I are starting to develop a good friendship bond :) I just shot in my yard at the 130 yar...

Re: New Alloy

We had a January thaw and it surfaced some more bullets and I see some interesting results in this alloy that is not the usual lead/tin/antimony alloy mostly used but I see that I will have to add a little lead to soften it some, especially for the .45 calibers. If they were sast as a GG I would lea...

Re: New Alloy

John my quest for a good bullet is like your quest for a good mould that casts a good bullet.
I always say "if you shoot a ugly bullet you get a ugly group. :D

New Alloy

For about a year now I been working on a alloy for the light .40 caliber and the heavier .45's to get a alloy that will hold the 2/3 of the bullet from upsetting into the groove. I was looking for a alloy that is hard but malleable so it just expands the 1/3 of the base but hold the front at bore di...

Re: Dallas Area BPCR Help

Jack, person to person is the best way. But get it out of your mind that it is some kind of scientific magic. Yes it is trial and error for a short time but it's straight forward.

Re: Bullet to Groove Diameter

For a GG bullet I opt to go a thousand over bore this way you have the option to size it a thousand down if need be for accuracy it the rifle shoots better at the lesser diameter. You can always reduce it but it's harder to expand it with out a swage. Also a potential problem could come if the shank...

Re: DZ or MVA Scope

Chris I agree with you on the front MVA adjustable mount. I have a bunch of unertl blocks and when I mounted the B-5 scope on my new .40-65 rifle I want to use for silhouettes and maybe for some long range from time to time I went through my collection of base blocks till I worked out the combinatio...
