Trigger improvements w/o stones

Once again we offer a tip. ;) For those without or hesitant to use fine india stones on action parts. If you are unhappy with your current trigger feel, creep, or pull weight. Try this simple trick.

Project Research for a nice 32Rem and a "B" 35Rem

Guys, I'm thinking :idea: (Whoops) on a possible project. Got some fitting questions: How much "fitting" is involved to mate a bolt to a barrel? Aside from the concept of headspace. What are the case SAAMI dimensions for 32R, 30R, 25R? Source for gonogo headspace gages? Doesn't the 35Rem and the 300...

Re: The Lee hand Press

Pitchy,
I really like the new MTM digital scale, fits in a shirt pocket. And it will handle 750 grains.
A lot less expensive than the RCBS -- Lyman stuff. 8-)

Re: How many reloaders do we have?

Tip for those avid reloaders: Imperial Sizing die wax is great!! It prevents those nasty times the shellholder rips the rim off a case. Just a tiny amount on the fingers will lube several cases; the "wax" protects die internals from rust, a quick wipe with a rag removes it from sized cases, the case...

Re: Remington Model 8 Safety Replacement

Big Al, I am very impressed with your use of clear plastic sheeting to simulate the receiver. There are a lot of other issues, assembly questions that could be better understood with this technique. If you have time, I'd encourage more photos. Way Cool!! Thanks :geek: On a side note how was the orig...

Re: 300 Savage loads for 81

Mr Lee, I really like cast loads in these calibers, Particularly 35Rem. Gas checks and linotype cast bullets are a great help for lead fouling. You might also try the "teflon" trick I posted :ugeek: under the Troubleshooting section. Just be sure to not get lube of any kind in a chamber. It can caus...

Leading the bore tip

Gents If you shoot cast bullets it could lead your bore. :o B4 this happens, go to Lowes tool dept, on the lubrication endcap you'll find Dupont spray (dry version) Teflon. Spray a little down the bore from the chamber end, Be SURE :evil: not to get any in the chamber. Use the little red tube. Run a...
