    Hmmm... that stock doesn't look at all like the chu wood normally seen.Almost looks birch.Is
    there a marking on the rear stock that looks like a box with a diagonal line through it? I'm
    thinking someo...

    Hello,I would keep numbers relatively low since you're using 3Fg instead of 2Fg."Relatively"
    means using round-ball charges. They should be plenty, anyway.A good rule of thumb is that for
    up to .45 ca...

    Josh, where have you been?? Hello,Just been real busy; introduced triggers and they seem
    popular. Those are on controlled growth, though, so I don't get more orders than I can handle.I
    drop in when I ...

    Hello,Yes, I'd get a Mosin as a first centerfire rifle. Rimfire should always come
    first.Surplus ammo can still be had cheaply. "Sticky bolt" is not always present, and not
    always caused by cosmoline ...

    Thanks. I wondered.I have a bunch of articles I've published over the years and probably should
    do another. My areas of strength are Mosins and 1911s. I'll have to think of something I can
    write that ...

    Hello,What's that area for? It's marked "private" but I can see it.There are no posts in it.I
    don't recall seeing it before. Is it new?Regards,Josh

    Personally I think the round has limits.Will you elaborate please?Regards,Josh

    Hello,Nah, long barrel or short barrel, you find what your rifle likes and go with it.You might
    lose a bit of velocity with a shorter barrel, but this doesn't seem to be a hard and fast rule
    with the ...

    Mercator,You are correct. I don't know why I said tank crews.Point is that it was not a primary
    weapon for front-lines.Regards,Josh

    Could you explain this to me? I've always thought lighter ammo is better in shorter barrels.The
    Mosin-Nagant was originally designed for a 212-grain bullet. It therefore has a 1:9.5"
    twist.The optimal...

Is it better to live by a corrupt society's standards rather than face persecution for not doing the same? This is the dilemma we now face. We must hold fast to our convictions as we confront this dilemma. Knowing one's self goes a long way in the crisis. - Me
