    Removing lead nose from 30 caliber bullet

    I'm in the progress of taking apart very old 7.5 french ammo to deprime and put new primers in. The one thing I noticed was that the 30 caliber bullets are lead nosed and they are deformed. If I was to chop off the lead nose and made it a flat nose would this be reusable or should I not bother...

    MAS 36 restoration, undoing sporterization butchery

    I got a sporterized MAS 36 from Kev74 for a great price and now it's time to return the gal back to her former glory. I've always been opposed to sporterization of classic rifles. This is the before: This is the current: Keep in mind I still haven't received the mid band swivel mount/screw...

    Been waiting on NYPD for my Purchase Auth since 2/14/2020

    I was eligible for my next handgun in early February. I mailed in the purchase authorization request on 2/4 and got a USPS confirmation receipt a few days later. I realized they are probably closed down due to covid-19 but this shit is out of hand now. On May 14 I will be 120 days over due. My...

    FREE Covid-19 Karma thread

    I will take pictures once I get home from work (too lazy for that) I was looking through my pile of stuff last night and figured since Carlos Hathcock hooked me up with some free brass and everyone has been so helpful with advice on reloading I would do a karma giveaway. All I ask is people pay...

    First reloading yield

    I was a little slow getting started as the auto drum wouldn't keep steady at 42.0 gr on a powder drop so I had to do about 10 drops, there ultimately was a variance of 0.2 to 0.6 but not enough to push even half way to the next load fps. I used Federal 210 large rifle primers for the reloads. A...

    Variance in case length of 45-70 Govt

    According to Hornady's 10th edition the max case length on the cartridge is 2.105 but there is no mention of the minimum. Western Powders 7th Edition states the same with a Trim length of 2.095 and Lee's Die insert information card states Trim length of 2.105 When I was case prepping and...

    swaging and reaming of primer pockets

    I have read they both do the same thing it's just a matter of if you have a press that can do it like with a Dillon or if you have a case prepper tool like the Hornady Case Prep Trio. Is one better than the other? I've read that the swaging requires lube where you can do reaming dry. Currently...

    Resizing and collet dies, do I use both?

    I'm assuming that the answer is yes as the full-length sizing die removes spent primers, adjusts head space but both resize the neck; but the collet die strictly resizes the neck. So do I need a collet if the resizing already does this function? Should I use the collet regardless after using...

    SOLVED: .458 SOCOM upper not cycling

    As the topic says I'm having issues with my .458 SC upper not cycling. I fire one round and it does not eject and chamber a new round. I am not sure if the ammo I purchased from LAX ammo is the culprit or if it is something else. I am using the upper on my SCR and I have even tried it on my...

    My new Mossberg 930 SPX Tactical

    It's an amazing semi shottie. I got it yesterday and immediately took it to the range and put 50 shells through it. It handles like a dream and I had quite a bit of fun double loading. Had some decent groupings 7 shells to the head, 7 to center from 15 yards.

    AR Maglock and Hyperswitch legalities?

    I was looking into these two items and was wondering if they are legal in NY or not? I believe they are legal in Commiefornia. There are a few threads here but no definitive answer and all of them seem to go off topic. Any info would be greatly appreciated.
