    The price isn't bad. Otherwise it looks OK and you say the bore is good. I would just tread in some screws aND file them flush.

    There was no cross-bolt or recoil lug. The gun was probably fired very little. It had no serial number, just a 3-digit number stamped in the wood of the stock. Maybe it was part of an order that...

    Butler, this gun was definitely a cut-down military rifle. I bought it at Ron Petersen's shop on Central in Albuquerque. There was something wrong with the chamber - someone had got in there with a...

    My bad on those loads

    Can't edit the post. It was a Hornady 220 grain RN, not 200 and I found that recently I have been using 42 gr. of H 4350, weighing each charge.

    My deer load is a 150 gr RN and 44 H380, which is in...

    I like 41.5 H4350 (NOT IMR 4350) behind the Hornady 200 RN and 40 4895 with the 180 RN. Both are good, solid loads that will bring down an elk. The 180 RN load chronos pretty close to the factory...

    I was thinking of the case where the bullet nose is snagging on the joint between the side plate and receiver. Not taking out a lot of material, just smoothing that joint. If the round isn't getting...

    Trying to read the crest stamp. You've got the Chakri stamp above, then below it something something 121. It's not the date which would be four characters and the first two would be 24 or 25.

    The older one is VERY accurate and hits at least as hard as my 45-70. Paul got a special exemption allowing him to use a 1X scope because of his eyesight. Otherwise you have to use iron sights.

    The Germans could have put another 400,000 along the Atlantic Wall and left plenty in Norway in 1944. Or sent half to the Eastern Front. I'm glad they didn't.
