    On the 99 threads

    I googled it and found a conversation in which a lad advised to peen the threads forward half way and then the front, backward. There was nothing to peen on these threads that I saw but I did tap...

    Unnecessary Tim

    I am able do do a lot of stuff others can't seem to. Actually I use two of the pads and when they get squished they are well over an inch long. Remember, I'm not trying to lap the whole barrel, just...

    There may be one

    on the fore end of this rifle. There is a metal piece held on with two screws that is keyed into the piece that butts against the action, that may be adjustable but it would leave a loose barrel on...

    What I ended up doing

    was greasing up the threads and using a small adjustable hook spanner I have to pull the barrel into the centering position. It required enough effort that I think the rifle will be good for a few...

    I got them from Midway I think. Made in Germany, VFG Weaponcare I think. I first saw them in use with .22 Rimfire stuff. A guy at a match was using them to clean with. It occurred to me they would be...

    Why some lots of bullets"Don't Shoot"

    If the ogive slope is inconsistent, none of em will shoot but if one controls that dimension, most of em will shoot just fine.

    Thanks

    Upon closer investigation I found the receiver has a chamfer inside it's shoulder and the barrel isn't big enough around to touch the face of the action very much so over time the shoulder of the...

    how does one hold tenths with a neck turning tool? Bordering on the absurd here, we are now.

    Close enough for me

    with measuring rounds loaded with bullets in them, one, if they have a pumpkin turner, only needs to get close. Even if one does cases on a lathe, one is pretty much only concerned with what the o.d....

    The other thing is or may be

    where on the barrel to place the weight. I have a couple of upper end Air Rifles and use movable tuners that will slide up and down the barrel. Both of them tune with the weight just forward of the...

    Why not just use ya vernier?

    I have a ball mike in a stand. It sits under my loading bench. I haven't turned cases in a very long time , years, because I have so many finished cases. The solution to varying case thickness is a...

    One would do well

    to measure all their bullets and segregate them. The biggest reason certain lots of bullets don't shoot is the variation of the ogive slope length. The current lot of Burgers 115's I have are within...

    if 4oz will tune a HV barrel, and it seems to, not much weight is needed.
