    Perhaps you missed my second sentence. I was discussing annealing, not Pete's test.

    AMP annealer

    I'm a believer. The AMP annealer works. And, I think AMP (the company) has shown that it works better than the salt-bath *at annealing*. What they never really get to though, is "does it improve...

    Amen! I took a scraping class perhaps a dozen years ago, and that was my take-away. I still have a hand-scraper, but probably wouldn't scrape anything except for decoration.

    I treasure McMaster-Carr

    In the age of "everything imported", when you can't go downtown and buy a screw, nut, bolt or any other fastener that meets any sort of spec, McMaster carries *spec compliant* parts. (Where they...

    Krieger is consistently in the #1 or #2 spot in several other long-range (1000yd) sports as well. (I think I've only seen them in #2 - behind Bartlein - at one major PRS match).

    You!

    You posted a smart-aleck remark, and then worried that people would misconstrue it after the fact.

    Not criticizing, but that is exactly how it happened.

    I would think so as well, but what cartridge needs a 5.5" reach? .50BMG is 5.5" *OAL*, and you can stick a thin indicator well inside the chamber! Also, I'm confused by the word "stem" which to me...

    This thread needs a definition of "match chamber"

    One man's "match chamber" (mostly meaningless term) is another's big, sloppy, hole. I know 40x will fire off-the-shelf ammo, so they're SAAMI min at the tightest.
