Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Re: 2018 - Mosin Nagant Prices

I'm not paying $300 for a Mosin even if I didn't have any. They can keep them in their warehouse and admire them themselves.

Re: Cast Bullets for Carcano

What type of powder are you going to use? For that (cast) bullet weight 30 grains of IMR 4350 is a nice accurate load. Also had some success with IMR 4895. 28.2 grains did ok. FYI, I never took these loads out further than 100 yards for accuracy. They grouped well at the 50 yards. I have since sold...

Re: Interesting Gun Failures

72 usmc, I've got some of these, but I haven't loaded any yet. http://gardnerscache.com/6_5mm_170_fp_g_c.html The older Lee die set had .264 and .268 expanders. You might find a used set. The new die set only has the .264, but they will make a .268 expander for an extra $10. You can check it out on ...

Re: Interesting Gun Failures

Most of you have probably read this, but if not, here you go. From the man himself that developed the load for the infamous Hornady bullet.

I'd fire it first and see how it does. You might be surprised. That will at least give you a benchmark if you decide to move ahead.

Re: Interesting Gun Failures

I think we know who is not a fan.LOL They do work in some and not in others. I never had a case failure. I've read about some failures and many times (not all) they didn't follow the Hornady recipe. Oh well, we could debate this forever. It's been debated for 15 years or so. Lots and lots of threads...

I've got one short Turk that I've never fired. Perhaps it is time. I loved it when the Turks were cheap. Those were great days.

Re: Interesting Gun Failures

72usmc, The bullets he is referring to are the Hornady .267 bullets. Some people REALLY hate them and consider them dangerous. The key to using them is to FOLLOW the Hornady recipe in their reloading manual and slug your rifle. You've got to have the proper diameter. I have some original Carcano amm...

Graff boxed ammo used Privi cases and Hornady bullets.
Oh, that's interesting. I didn't know they were doing that. Have you tried that ammo? I've shot the Hornady .267, but I reloaded my own. I always slugged the bore of the rifles I wanted to use it in. If too tight, I didn't try it.

Since that ammo uses the Hornady bullet . I do not think I am wrong .
???? Are you saying Privi Partizan uses the Hornady bullet? I've bought lots of Privi Partizan Carcano ammo and never got a box with Hornady bullets.

Re: Interesting Gun Failures

The rifles did not " blow up " . Both bolts held , neither the barrels or receivers failed . The cases had primer blow outs that released the gas pressure into the mag wells , cracking stocks and wood inserts and swelling the magazine housing on one . Unlike the guy who made the video , I do know w...

Re: Walmart says 21 to buy a long gun

These "restrictions" can be argued forever. Never forget the ultimate goal of the anti-gunner, a gun free society. Everything they do is designed to move the ball towards that goal. What is "reasonable gun legislation" today will not be good enough tomorrow. In 1986 the NRA caved to the machine gun ...

Re: Walmart says 21 to buy a long gun

I understand the other side. I've been reading what they say for years. It is not really about the AR rifles. It is about all firearms. The legislation they propose today will never be enough. It is a game where they move the ball towards the goal line a few yards at a time. What they say when the c...

Re: Walmart says 21 to buy a long gun

For Walmart, the 21 is for ammunition too. Also, any toy firearm (pellet, airsoft, etc.) that looks evil will not be sold. That just makes me feel warm and fuzzy all over. I wonder how long before they will deny concealed carry in their stores? REI today says it is severing ties with companies that ...
