Thanks again Darrell and excuse my tongue in cheek teasing. 30-338 John S
PS...have you ever heard of someone "shimming" a firing pin because it was hitting the primer with too much force? Sounds unusual to me...your comments?
We regret to inform you that????
Don't shim a firing pin, poor practice to say the least...... Adjust the protrusion and spring weight for best results. Protrusion should be .053-.060 and a 24-28 pound spring is best.
Writer??? Hard to say, I do enjoy writing, if I could only have someone type things as fast as I think of them??? Oh well, maybe I can trade healthcare credits for typing lessons???
Cheers and thanks for the kudos....
