  1. Hilary would claim to have been there while sitting in DC apartment.
  2. Sounds like a discrimination law suit. Or misuse of federal funds to the state.
  3. If you can, take 1 shim and sand the right side down a bout 1/16" leaving the left side original. Give it a try and see if this does not pull the barrel to the right for you. If it does but not enough, sand a second shim. Shims can be replaced if this does not work.
  4. This time every year, the oil refineries have a major maintenance shut down causing price in crease just before summer. Or they have a fire shutting down the refinery for repairs. Watching news, these fires are always in a none critical area and can be fits in a week or so. But the cost of gas goes up just before summer. This year the oil pipeline is hacked and shut down. Yep, gas prices go up just before summer. But a hack does not damage the refineries. It's just a flip of a switch somewhere. Don't the oil companies realize, we the people
  5. Practice rounds. Try loading one round at a time. Remove the primer. Put crumpled up paper in for the powder. Wad. Your normal load of shot. Crimp. Fill primer pocket with clear silicone and make flush with case. (let cure overnight) Now these practice rounds will only help you with loading your gun. They will not help you with extracting because they are too heavy and the crimp is not open. To practice removing the hulls, you need to put fired rounds in the gun and then practice shucking. How every the crimp will change from
  6. Good choice. Now for the powder/fertilizer. As a commercial reloader, I had many times to disassemble ammunition because I couldn't remember the powder used. I also got ammunition from shooters that they were not sure of. I would pull the bullets to salvage the case, and primers. Beings I cast most of the bullets I used in the business, I would melt down the pulled bullets so I would have fresh bullets and not bullets that might be distorted. Back to the powder. I put it an plastic bucket (2 gallons) and mixed it with water. (let it sit for a da
  7. 92 shooter since 1991. I shoot both smokeless and BP. (real and sub) I have always removed the 1 screw that holds the stock on. Removed the stock. Cleaned the action with Simple Green diluted with warm water. Lowered the receive in to a pan of boiling water. Then raised and lowered several times. Flushed with hot water and then ran a brush with rag down the barrel. Takes about 5 minutes. Because the water is hot, it evaporates quickly. Spray with WD-40 to remove all water. Let drip dry for a day or 2. Then lube it all to
  8. When talking to my customers, I suggested looking for split cases at the unloading table. You have 10 hand gun and 10 rifle cases to inspect. You can pinch the cases as you pick them up off the table. By pinching the crack will open up or the case will feel oval and not round. At the unloading table you are inspecting 20 cases and not hundreds or thousands at home. Same goes for separating calibers at the unloading table if you shoot different calibers at the same time. (I shot 45s in revolvers and 357s in my rifle) You have 20 cases to check and not
  9. I work on model submarines that are functional. I have lots of small screw, bolts and nuts. They are constantly jumping off the work bench. I find them using a flash light and getting down on the floor. The light causes the parts to cast long shadows which helps find them. Some how ever are found during the annual shop cleanup. This is where everything in the shop is moved and swept under. A magnet will not help. All parts are stainless.
  10. Splitting in what gun? Revolver or rifle? Having reloaded commercially for 18 years one thing that helps stop splitting is to size your brass to the chambers. All chambers are not the same. Some are larger than others and this is where splitting will start. Start by making 5 dummy rounds. Run your brass through your loading process leaving the primer and powder out. Then check these dummy rounds in every chamber they would be used in. What you are looking for is the tightest chamber. If your press is setup with the sizing die re
  11. Take a look at the firing pin retaining nut. On the breech face. Tighten it if loose.
  12. I have loaded millions of rounds. When separating the brass from the media, listen for a bell like clink. Split cases will ring and you can look for it by shaking hands full of brass. This will help you find the split case. If you use a case feeder, your will hear this clink as the brass goes around in the case feeder.
  13. During my years as a pilot, I have had more than on FAA examiner tell me, "Duct Tape is NOT FAA Approved." I was flying hot air balloons at the time. Asked why. The response was, the Duct Tape is heavy and it is stronger than the balloon envelop fabric. I knew of several balloon pilots that probably had a hundred to two hundred pounds of Duct Tape on their balloon holding them together until the next biannual inspection.
  14. What caliber, what bullet (weight, shape, diameter), what charge, what powder, what gun?
  15. Try turning them around and use the back as the face of the target. In time the curved target plate will bend flat then curved again in the opposite direction.
