    how consistent the neck strength is. I had set the necks to having .002" neck tension with a mandrill. Any variation in the hardness would show up in the necks ability to hold consistent seating...

    A friend

    has at least one of every caliber chambered in the 99's. It's quite a collection. He has doubles in a few of them. He's still buying:). I've only ever owned one, a 308 clip model. I thought it a bit...

    Sticky: I once had

    a Rimrock with a Kostyshin 1-17 twist barrel on it in a 30 BR. That barrel was real big on the chamber end but had a fairly tight choke for the last two inches at the muzzle. That barrel was one of...
