    M70 Bolt

    Why is the bolt missing? If he can't get a satisfactory answer and confirm it himself, I would not walk away from it- I would run!

    Help me put legs on this shooting bench

    I have aquired a solid, 3 inch piece of oak that was to be used as 1 of 2 swinging doors in a bank lobby. They decided not to use these 'cuz the boss said it would make the bank look a like a saloon. Anyway, I got 'em both. My idea is to make a somewhat "portable" shooting bench for...

    bell and carlson stocks

    I have a varmint barrel Rem 700 that I just ordered the exact same stock for, as well. Fact is, the only real experience I have had with B&C was negative, but I am willing to give 'em another chance. I had Doc White make me up a 45 using a B&C stock, and the first time I took in the woods...

    Getting into reloading, how much is this gonna cost me?

    If there is a better deal than what you find in the lonk below, I haven't seen it. You might try and find someone who is interested in getting OUT of the reloading business as well. The kits are great, but there will be things you want to upgrade as you go. You will only learn what those...

    Nosler reload data

    Wideners was out of BTs when I went by there the other day, so I went with the Accubonds instead. I did what Hypersonic suggested with the feeling they would end up being the same load. They were dam close. For my Abolt 280, they were close enuf. For my custom guns that I like to touch holes...

    When to trim

    Thanks for that. I felt like I was still in a good range, but thought I would see what others used. I was vague with the question and for that, I apologize. Sometimes my mind works quicker than my fingers......Thanks again, Jim R

    When to trim

    I suppose I was trying to be too simple with my question and was not clear. Seems like so many question posed on forums goes on and on and on with info......... I used the term "min.chamber length/base to case mouth" because that is how it is referred to in the narrative provided with the...

    What Rifle Stock?

    I got to fondle a Manners the other day, and I have to say that is one fabulous stock. Not cheap! But I would stack it up against any other stock made. Jim R

    When to trim

    My exact max case length is 2.502 as provided by my gunsmith and confirmed by the Sinclair case length gauge (wonderful piece of equipment). After 4 or 5 firings from my 6.5-06, they are approaching the 2.470-2.480 range. This is a custom gun with all the measurments in hand so I am not real...

    When to trim

    If your minimum chamber length/base to case mouth is 2.502, when should I trim back? Is there a rule of thumb for when to trim? Thanks in advance, Jim R
