Looks for Target

Looks for Target (4/11)

  1. https://www.theoutdoorwire.com/releases/9f26d21a-d2f4-49e5-8a35-6ad66e6b9179 https://winchester.com/Support/Customers/Winchester-9mm-Luger-115-gr-Recall
  2. From start to finish it took about 2 hours. 1.5 hours of that was hand filing and sanding the areas you have to remove. It was fun, would do again. It's just something to do during the cold months. I didn't use a drill press (I do have one) just a hand drill and a vice and then hand files. They are on sale again on Brownells too, so that's nice.
  3. I have and like the Caldwell on that slips on to a mount that is secured to a picatinny mount. Mfr Part: 530143 You have to buy additional mounts (123904) separately. I bought more than one mount to be able to put it on different AR's. Just don't forget to zip the bag back up when you empty it. Doesn't work quite as well catching brass at that point. Ask my how I know.
  4. Are you measuring across the cannelure? Some companies apply the cannelure 'not in the press' and it's a post process step. So when the cannelure is applied it leaves the metal on the edges raised. The wash is typically not able to 'knock that back down'. You commented they seem out of round too. This also tells me the cannelure was added 'outside of the press'. When done in the press the bullet will go thru a size die so it makes the raised bulge go away and the bullets are round. Measure the bearing surface below the cannelure with a mic if you can. Calipers are not the normal tool for measuring bullet diameter. SAAMI max bullet diameter is 0.2245" +0/-0.0030 So if they are truly 0.2252" they could create a high pressure situation.
  5. Most companies have their SDS online. Just need to find them. https://lmgtfy.com/?q=Klean-Strip+D-Lead+Wipes+msdsLMGTFY - Klean Strip SDS

  7. Turn a light on for a few minutes to get it hot and turn it off. Turn one light on and then enter the room. Touch the 'off' bulbs to find the hot one and you'll know which switch goes to what. To keep the answer hidden I made the text white. Highlight the above to see my answer.

  9. A buddy mentioned these as infield cleats he used in softball league so I gave them a try a few years ago. They made my feet very sore when I walked around on range rocks all day. I don't remember them getting any better as the year went on. I ditched them for some Brooks trail running shoes. YMMV. Darren
  10. I had trouble submitting via Chrome but was able to submit via IE.
  11. I must be the exception to the rule, I rarely if ever have crushed cases on pistol stuff. Maybe a 380 during 9mm will sneaking, but that's about it. On 223, once in a while the shell track will get enough 'gunk' that it will slow the cases down and then I'll crush one. I think that happened to me 5 times in 2,000?
