Re: Cleaning Survey

Yes, a complete tear down when first bought. As we've seen, the insides can look like they're full of old road tar that has to be scooped out with a spoon. Once taken apart, and thoroughly cleaned, i like to lube the barrel/recoil spring area with a light moly grease and the action parts with a ligh...

Re: 25 Remington reloading questions

I have found that when using 3031 in .25 Rem that the starting charge, 21 grains, does not work the action at all. at 24 grains the action begins to work, but not always, and I get several stovepipe ejection malfunctions. 26 grains makes the action work with zest! I use 25 grains now to not over str...

Unless mine eyes do deceive me, it is also missing an action screw, and so is missing at least one internal bolt locking part.

Shot about 2.5" at 100 yards before the barrel heated up. When it got hot the group went all to hell. Oddly, it preferred the 150 grain round nose over the 160 grain Hornady pointed nosed bullets.

So, I had this Winchester 1894 in .44 Mag that wouldn't hit a barn door from the inside, so off to the little gun show we went. It was the small show, with the big AGCA show next month or so, so I wasn't confident I'd see anything interesting there. Then this happened: http://i19.photobucket.com/alb...

Important Safety Tip for model 14

I had built some loads for my trusty model 8 in .25.
