Yep, beats spending hours of Google-fu! I have one Hi-Point - the M995 Carbine, and really like it.

My opinion is to NEVER try to ammortise the cost of the gear into your ammo costs. Once you add another caliber or three, it gets skewed off. Just call it an upfront equipment cost and leave it at...

Far better, IMHO, to trade or sell the Berdan primers and get the boxer cases. I reload the Remington and Winchester commercial brass, and my SKS's like the 150 grain SP loads.

We will miss those extra F-22 Raptors when the Chinese get bolder and start attacking our interests and allies.

I rather liked "Electraglide in Blue" with Robert Blake (pre-Beretta).
Billy Green Bush as his partner who goes bad.

Sad ending though........

"Blue Thunder" with Roy Sheider was a fun romp. ...

The goobs just can't understand - forcing unproven and quirky 'High Tech' on people does NOT work. Let the market drive it, not LAWS.

Yep, reminds me of some .45ACP I bought from a reloader buddy years ago, before I began loading. He didn't trim the lead at the case mouth, and it was 'messy'. I had to trim the lead from it before...

Cull the brass into two basic piles - look in the case to see if it has two small holes (NOT reloadable) or one larger hole (reloadable). Once you divvy out the calibers, you may have something a...

I use both handheld pocket cleaners, and the Lyman Case Prep tool (a glorified cordless screwdriver with gun-specific bits). If doing a big lot of brass, the Lyman gets the job.
There are a lot of...

The 60gr. Aguila SSS is an excellent small critter thumper at fairly close range. Up close, tumbling/keyholing isn't a problem - just makes a bigger hole.

My Marlin and a buddy's two Marlins all prefer 170 grain, for tightest groups - and the extra mass helps the terminal energy. Our shooting distances are not over 100 yards, usually closer. Works fine...

My .22 rifles don't care for the Blaser ammo, much preferring the faster Minimags.
My Whitney Wolverine pistol loves the Blaser though, so I keep a couple bulk packs handy for it. My Stoeger Luger...

Very good tip. I have found the European Mausers generally prefer bullets in the 190-200 grain range (issue ammo used 196 grain), while the Turkish rifles used a load with a 150-something grain...

I shoot 7.62X51 (NOT necessarily 'NATO') in my FR8, and have shot some .308Win in it. No signs of lug setback. Gotta love the Kar98-based action.

The main problem seems the Spitzer bullet they use has a very unique ogive, and our common bullets can sometimes be a poor match to the K31's short chamber. There are premium bullets that come close...
