Nothing like the smell of new reloading equipment. - Clames
No more manual powder trickler and tiny scale... :nana: [img]http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j192/BlownF150/20150815_193643.jpg[/img] Rather they had put the power plug port on the backside of the unit and the cheap little powder pan is chrome plated steel that seemed to have some small...

10-shot groups to test rifle/load accuracy. - Clames
I know most swear by the old "tried-and-true" 3-shot group method while some insist on 5-shot groups. While testing out some handloads in my .30-06 and AR I decided to run 10-shot strings of each load without more pause than it took to write down the velocity from the chrony or reload the next 5 ro...

There is a gun cleaner that smells worse than Ballistol. - Clames
Much worse actually. Picked up a little jar of Montana X-treme Copper Killer after doing a little research on bore solvents in some DoD testing that are safe with AR aluminum receivers (no, not all are). This stuff has an incredibly strong ammonia odor to it (ammonia oil is the second ingredient li...

Digging into the ATF's M855 Proposal & Why It's Wrong - Clames
This will be a lengthy post with pictures and math. Those of you that can't brain too good might want to go look up cat pictures... :booboo: Starting with the ATF's proposal itself: http://www.atf.gov/sites/default/files/assets/Library/Notices/atf_framework_for_determining_whether_certain_proj...

Dan Wesson .357 Mag 4-barrel set. - Clames
Some old gun I was just given as a gift, never fired, looks like the cylinder was rotated once or twice. [img]http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j192/BlownF150/20141127_115953.jpg[/img] [img]http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j192/BlownF150/20141127_115927.jpg[/img] I know... :snoozer:...

Data driven range time. - Clames
Spent a few hours at the local range testing out some .223 handloads as well as working on a system to collect data for each rifle and various factory loads. More concerned with velocity and accuracy data for the .223 loads than I am with the .308 stuff for my GSR at the moment. Target was setup a...

Gotta love RCBS and their customer service. - Clames
Lazy weekend with not much more planned than changing oil in the truck so I figured I'd load some .223 to kill time. Picked up my RCBS hand priming tool and discovered the small priming rod was missing. No idea where it went, my reloading bench is spotless and everything has its own drawer from sh...

I gotta stop buying these things. - Clames
[img]http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j192/BlownF150/20140915_155917.jpg[/img] The 531 on the bottom was delivered today. Nice little knife, very thin, even more so than the 940's. Just ordered a custom Griptillian for somebody's Christmas gift too and now I think I'll have to have one made for...

OB Mechanics, let's see if you can figure this out. - Clames
This spark plug was somewhat seized, took an overnight soak in Kroil and careful use of a breaker bar to work it out without taking the threads in the aluminum cylinder head with it. Little bit of oil puddled around the base of the plug, either from a slight leak in the valve cover gasket or a litt...

Made a (practical) addition to my 1911. - Clames
Changed out the VZ Operator II's to a set of VZ Frags. These are the slimline grips which require thinner bushings and shorter screws. In fact even the shorter screws needed to be shortened a little more (from 0.346" to 0.328") to allow the magazines to clear. [img]http://i80.photobucket.com/albu...

American Made Kitchen Cutlery - Clames
S.O. got me a carving set from Warther & Sons. [img]http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j192/BlownF150/20131231_153051.jpg[/img] Very well made and balanced. Knives use S35VN steel (58-60 HRC) and are a great value compared with Wustof, Henckels, and other high-end makes. The carving knife has a...
