    I wonder what it does to all the bras candle sticks and othe bras products like water
    faucets?Brasso only attacks the surface of what it touches, which is why it's used in brass
    polish; it removes a s...

    I have some left over. I tried them in .30-06 and a .30-06 Improved. Accuracy was amazing

    sight and the cartridge used. 208 grain bullet, it does recoil some.

    Since that rifle is chambered for 7.62x54R due to a Russian contract, I wonder in what type of
    distance the sights are graduated?The Tsarist Mosin-Nagant rifles were calibrated in "arshins",
    a unit of...

    You are correct in your surmise, Your Sheriffness. .45 ACP is too high pressure a cartridge.
    (It feels very strange to write .45 ACP is too high pressure...) Not the blow out the cylinder
