Re: 6BR loading tips

Back when Varget was hard to find---guess it is now also---I used both H4895 and Rl15. My results (groups, SD, ES) were nearly the same as Varget.

Re: Bullet Trap

Thanks pdeal. I like your design, it's simple. I have a standard design trap made from T-1---way overkill, but no matter how I seal it, I still get dust and splatter---with air rifles. I don't have 50' in my garage to shoot Roger's postal---only 45', but I do shoot some winter air rifle postals and ...

Re: Bullet Trap

pdeal. Is the trap 12" deep and do you fill it with mulch by removing the top?

Chuck is great to deal with, he has always treated me more than fair for several transactions and always been good with his word.

Re: Reloading 357/38 SPL.... WTH?

I had that happen with a 30-30 and half jacket bullets. I guess that it was like sticking a lead bullet in the barrel with a light charge, but the lead core was able to separate from the jacket and roll out the barrel. I upped my charges and never had it happen again. I had two different loads I use...

Re: Reloading rifle cartridge on a progressive loader?

Merlin, I believe what Wdr2 mentioned is the crux of loading on one tool head----and that's the diameter of the Dillon powder funnel. I like to seat and crimp on separate stages and that's only possible with four stages if you get a powder funnel diameter that you can live with for the bullet diamet...

Thanks for posting Roger and Mike. 30mph winds in Lander, ouch, unusual---tough shooting in that canyon---nice scores!

Re: Isn’t it a great feeling when......

Always nice to find something you forgot about that has value! So, off David's topic but as far as stored ammo goes: I've been testing some 22's and ammo lately @ 100 meters prone with a sling and bag supported front hand, wondering about replacing a barrel on a CM-2. I live in a dry, cold area, but...

Re: Reloading rifle cartridge on a progressive loader?

Merlin, I load for my 45-70 on a 550C. I don't prime on the Dillon as I can't get a good feel for the primer seat, but I set up the sizer--sans decapper on one, the powder station on 2, a seater on 3 and a crimper on 4. Works fine for sure---the only complaint I have is the height clearance is a bit...

Re: A non- silhouette reloading question.

David, I'm a shooter and not a collector. So, I stopped at a friends house this afternoon who knows more about collecting and we talked about Swedes. He said I was wrong about the number stamp on the barrel being the year it was re-barreled or even if it was re-barreled. So, strike that comment.......

Re: A non- silhouette reloading question.

No need to be nervous David. Mine are all as issued also. I picked the first one up in 1977 and I have shot it a bunch, for sure well over 2,000 rounds that were my reloads--never an issue. They shoot fine with mild or moderate loads, they are safe, well built rifles. There should be a date stamp on...

Re: A non- silhouette reloading question.

David, I'm with another dang nine----my Swede 6.5's model 96's and 38's shoot best with something like the Hornady 160 round nose or a Sierra GK 140 flatbase. If you can find a box of the Sierra 160 semi pointed---they always shot great for me---but I think they may have been discontinued. I've alwa...

Re: EGW Vertical Split Scope Rings Question

David, I don't have the rings you are talking about, but I have several of their bases and a set of the tactical 30mm rings. I've been satisfied with quality vs cost, especially with the bases.

Re: Walther KKMS Rifle - Final Reduction

They do not, from the factory, have a back bored barrel. The Running Bore model had an adjustable cheek piece, but looked similar.

Re: Walther KKMS Rifle - Final Reduction

KKMS----last two letters are for Metallic Silhouette. I had one just like it and know several other people who had/have them and shoot them in silhouette. It qualifies for standard rifle. The weight on the barrel is held on by set screws and easily removed. The trigger is very light but adjustable--...
