Well, I ended up doing roughly what rjd suggested.

I cut an empty .308 brass down to roughly the right length then ran it across the file until it was the right length.

If there's anyone who resizes .308 or .30-06 and has old brass no longer fit for reloading, that'd suffice. I don't need the .44 AMP headstamp, just appropriately-sized brass.

I'm given to...

I've read that, but I don't have the means to ream out the inside nor the appropriate means of sizing the brass.

For me, it's the CZ 452-2E ZKM.

I had one and it got stolen.

So I bought a second one.

.22lr Gecado "Plinker" single shot bolt action. I got it when I was around 17 or 18, paid for it out of my own money. Sadly, I didn't keep it - traded it in on another rifle. Now I wish I'd kept...

Very first pistol I ever held, at the ripe old age of 9 or 10, was a Browning Hi-Power so I've always had a soft spot for them.

Many thanks, Serno

How the hell did I miss that? I know that site but I hadn't noticed the year the P228 was developed.

I knew it was a variant of a P226 so I figured it had to be newer.

SIG-Sauer P228 query

I've googled my little heart out but can't find the answer anywhere so I'm wondering if anyone on here knows:

I'm a bit of a slacker, really. I always give the guns - .22 and 7.62 a clean before they go out but I'm lax on cleaning them when I return.
