Re: Tell us about yourself...

By "From the clip" Jim, do you mean, the magazine lips on the side ? If so I have read where others with this problem, on Rem and other magazine fed actions, smooth/file the edges ever so slow and easy till the spot that scratches the case stops doing so. You might play with that some or have a smit...

Re: Powder names are getting to an almost confusing point

Sure it does, and you can see how the companies and their legal staff, covers themselves, as we all do, with the notices/warnings on the labels of the containers, just like we have home owners insurance clauses to cover someone being injured on our properties. Bill K

Sounds good. I know if that is how they operate and do, then I would never shop there.. Bill K

Re: Powder names are getting to an almost confusing point

That just proves the point. It is up to us, not others, to make sure we are getting what we want, prior to leaving the counter, let alone the store. Look at and check the item/s the clerks bring back and then and only then accept and pay for it. No matter what it be, powder, bullets, etc. Bill K

Re: Powder names are getting to an almost confusing point

I know you, from you posts, etc. Rick. Agree accuracy first, especially on our Skippy's.. Great acrobatics, even with some slower, but accurate loads, than those fast misses.. Bill K

Re: Powder names are getting to an almost confusing point

Robert w. The new powders and names are mostly marketing ploys, to get us to purchase the latest and newest. I have found, after falling for a couple of them, that I just will stick to the old, tried and true powders that have worked for me, for years. Especially in the pistol/revolver loading. Thin...

Re: Redding Bushing Die (Neck Sizing)

For what it is worth, I normally measure and keep my neck thickness in the 12 to 13 thousands range, then when I neck size or size new cased down, I also use the .226 bushing, which gives me the .232-.233 neck with a loaded round. Works well in all of my .20 cal with the chamber/neck measurements I ...

Re: .224 Valkyrie

Me too. I have and shoot the 204R, 20 SCC, 221Fb & a 17Fb, along with others. Mostly shoot the 20SCC & a 20-223ai on squeeks and rockchucks. Some of the 22-250, 20-223ai and 204R on coyotes. But take critters, at one time or the other, with all of them. So far I have stayed away from the 6.5 or 6 cr...

Re: .224 Valkyrie

The older one's maybe so. However a new barrel in either of the old standby's, with a faster twist, as some are doing now, will solve that issue, and you still have easier to obtain brass, dies and with less cost overall. But that is the nature of our sport/hobby. Some will try the new cartridge, ma...

Re: .224 Valkyrie

May be just my opinion. But the old 22-250 and 220 Swift work just fine, and a lot less work to obtain/form and reload. Bill K

I think we knew that, You would never see a actual night force marked down that much. Believe we were only adding a little humor to the post. Bill K
