    Works for me

    I've done it before and am fixin' to do it again. Seems to work fine in a hammer-fired pistol, and most factory guns. Stuff that's been tweaked with light springs or light firing pins may not work....

    I guess I should have pulled the trigger on some dies earlier. You depart with an excellent reputation, which is as it should be. I wish you well in your future endeavors!

    "Stainless" and "Chrome Moly" are categories of steel and it makes little sense to compare the two without getting down to specific alloys. The alloys used for barrel making do seem more resistant...

    Arizona & Utah both have permits AND constitutional carry. The permit recognizes a few more liberties in AZ, I'm unsure about Utah (although I have a Utah permit).

    There are a handful of holders that are basically a shelll-holder with a center post that tightens against the brass - they're a pretty good balance of secure grip, and easy change. K&M and others...

    Summit 14x40

    I bought my current lathe ~20 years ago, the company is still around, but I think their smallest machine now is a 16x60. For the uninitiated "14x40" means you can turn a 14" diameter piece, 40" long...

    I doubt they are - I've never seen a tolerance spec on the length, which would presumably be stated if they were.

    BUT, I think the reason the "real" standards are full-scale is to detect any distortion in the threaded rod at the heart of the thing - if it's bent or stretched that should show up on a full-range...

    I disagree

    That was once common, but no longer is. It provides no real benefit (other than trying to figure out which way to drive a sight in or out). Most current manufacturers sell sights with parallel...

    Absolutely!

    Definitely. For sight cuts I like to make that center cut a couple thou deeper than my dovetail depth as well - makes it a little easier to get the sight in & out, but still holds "plenty much good...

    ...but I think that's normal when it can't reach a stable tare weight. On older RCBS units I had that problem frequently due to poor power quality.

    What bullet sizing die / pusher did you use? Might try this myself.

    Interesting

    Seems eminently reasonable. Do you recall what the cutoff size for 'expendable' was? How 'bout you Jackie? How big and/or expensive does a drill need to be to warrant sharpening?

    Probably around $700-$1000 - and declining

    Great rifle, but strides in airguns in the past 10-15 years are leaving the older 'great guns' in the dust. Glad you said you're keeping it - that's probably the best way to get value from it! (...
