Re: Today a Gift Horse

From Doc AV in 2014: Roundsworth May '14 I had a Ross rifle with a ‘hogged out’ chamber. I cannot recall what letters were hand stamped on the barrel to indicate the modification. ‘LC’ comes to mind. Full length sizing really worked the brass. I do not know how long the cases would have lasted. I ne...

Today a Gift Horse

I good friend of mine and one of my club's members knows I like odd-ball firearms and presented me with a 1905 Ross MkII in what I think is .303 Epps(?) It is a classic Canadian conversion as I found several of the exact same rifles being shown on Youtube. By luck alone I was testing out a new load ...

Re: Colt 1911 NM .38 special Mid Range

Which model did you buy? Is it a straight blow-back smooth barrel or is does it still have locking lugs on the barrel?

Re: Colt 1911 NM .38 special Mid Range

I have a BOMAR BAR-STO Colt that I used in competition for many years. I have custom dies for reloading the wad cutters so they feed properly.

Re: Mauser 1910/14 .25 ACP range report rolling target & 25 yds

It is one of the largest .25ACP made fitting your hand very well and points like a Luger.

Re: WW I crash photo album 49 pics

Many of the photos have the same background. You have to wonder if they are training accidents?

Re: 7.7 Jap using pulled "Yellow-tipped" Russian bullets

I've got several loads for the 7.7, I wanted to try the IMR-4831 to see how well it worked with the Heavy Ball. Nothing against the RNFB bullet, it just peters out past 600 meters and drops like a stone due to the flat base. I've won one of the 800 yard matches with this rifle and a 175 grain Sierra...

7.7 Jap using pulled "Yellow-tipped" Russian bullets

I tried a new load for my Type 99 Jap 7.7 rifle to see if the accuracy was there. I had two pulled bullets to play with. A Russian Yellow Tipped Heavy ball Spitzer boat-tailed bullet and a Russian 150 grain Cup Based ball bullet. The load was going to be the same with 50 grains of IMR-4831 and Winch...

Re: Old Powder Handed to me: how safe is it?

I still shoot powder made in WWI and it is as good as the day it was made as it has been properly stored.
You have several hundreds of dollars of powder that will last you a "few years".
