    Did you know that Edward Boxer was a British Ordinance officer who's primer design was adopted by the U.S. and Hiram Berdan was an American ordinance officer who's primer design was adopted by Europe...

    Are you degenerate reloader?

    Take this short questionnaire to see if you have a "reloading problem". Hopefully my attempt at humor doesn't offend anyone or compromise forum etiquette.

    On a typical day at the range, what...

    If you have a bullet puller it may be worth your while to pull one apart and investigate the innards and propellant. Just costs you one round for peace of mind.

    That's heartbreaking. I took a pic of the numbers on the screen and will definitely keep an eye out in my neck of the woods. Bastids! :mad:

    It took me a few years too, but now I'm a believer. Now my beam scale is just a decoration along with my Lee Handloaders and handheld case trimmers.

    Stolen firearms database

    This might be well known to some of you, but I was unaware it existed. And I can't speak to it's accuracy or safety, but I thought I'd share it. It's no NCIC, but it's all we have I guess.

    WTB: SSG 69 PI OR PII

    Ideally in Northern California, if it's used I want to see it first and will travel to do so. I may have something interesting to trade as well depending on your needs/desires! :thup:

    What it's worth would take a bit of research on your part, a quick check of Gunbroker and a few other sites should tell you roughly where the price range is. Than hone down to the rifle you actually...

    Reticle types in miltary rifles

    At the suggestion of the fine folks on this blog I bought and am now reading Steve Houghton's "The British Sniper, A Century Of Evolution". Great read. Anyway I'm reading about the SMLE MK III,...

    He's got a pair of Berthiers! What a crazy collection. Part of me wants it to exist for eternity untouched, but most of me is bummed they just sit in a rack and aren't in the hands of shooters. Oh...

    I know it shouldn't be, but it's all the more impressive that it's a woman doing it. Even at gunpoint, I'd probably decline. Crazy old timey people!

    I'm pretty sure that mount is from an old U.S. night vision rig. I'm still looking though. The rifle is a hot mess, it needs some love. Or a mercy killing. :o
  15. I've seen that mount before somewhere. Or...

    I've seen that mount before somewhere. Or something very similar. But not on an Enfield. I'll dig in, I'm curious. That story sounds...well used.

    I tried the vee jig haven't tried the mirror. My T throws low and left at 100 yds from a bore sighting. Mine matches and everything is tight and pinned. I'm debating sending my 32 in for service per...

    Happy Independence Day

    To the good men and women of the United States, happy Independence Day! If you love your freedom, hug a veteran. Ask first of course. And to the next knuckleheads that want to play some games with...

    Maybe a picture of my space gun would help, because the next day I'm still mad at it. Now I can't find the barrel weight.

    Your most expensive firearms book?

    I got to looking up some of my books after looking up my copy of Peter Laidler's An Armorer's Perspective and it was going for $400. (That search turned up a very disturbing story about Mr. Laidler...

    I can see why that line of Remington models would be attractive to collectors. I have a 513-T TM and a cool little 512X I won at auction when no one else bid on. Good for rats and such. Have the...
