    Been a couple of years since I was there last but there is an "All for one, one for all stage" I have still not figured out. 


    The infamous Three Musketeers Sweep.

    It's an 8 target set numbered 1 thru 8.

    All for one - rifle or both pistols = 10 shots .  Shoot 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-4-1

    One for all - other gun(s) = 10 shots. Shoot 1-4-1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8

    Lake Baikal - deepest lake in the world as I remember.

    Yep - freshwater lake with a population of seals oddly enough.

    Keep the cut off piece, later you can install dowels and extend it again,

    Great idea.

    Tip - drill two holes in it for future dowels before you cut it down.  ;):)

  4. Sometime in the 1960's I bought a National Match M1 Garand from the DCM. As I recall it was about $175.

    Don't ask what happened to it.


    When my father died I inherited a like new 30-40 Krag he brought home from The Great War. Don't ask what happened to it.


    Excuse me - I'm gonna go throw up now ........  :wacko:

    I have had really great results so far using the tumbler with stainless pins. What kind of results have you folks had running the tumbler without pins?

    Great - depending on what you want. Flash holes are clean-er, not sparkling.Cases - outside - pretty much same as with pins, inside - clean enough. I do use Lemi Shine & Dawn. Not worth it for me to use pins unless I have some really groaty (scientific term) brass.

    If you dry tumble wet shells you will sometimes get clumps of media stuck in the bottom of the shells. Not a good idea. I just put mine on a  towel out in the sun for a few hours, then dry tumble.

    I've been cleaning this way for several years now. I don't have this problem. It may be because I deprime first, or I use Zilla Desert Blend (fine) walnut media or that I make sure the media is always dry when I start. I clean .45 Colt, .38 Spl, .357Mag, 9MM and .32 H&R Mag this way without getting any clumps in cases. I also check every flash hole & case for cracks/splits after drying. .556 however is a totally different story. :(  YMMV

     I found (and still do with my BPCR cases) that if I deprime and then clean, media always gets stuck in the flash holes and I have to poke it out. I suspect your issue was a blocked flash hole, but IDK.

    If using walnut media, try Lizard Litter Desert Blend. I very, very rarely have any media problems in flash holes.
