Just shooting two of my favorite bolt action military surplus rifles. The M1903 Springfield manufactured by Rock Island Arsenal and the Mauser K98k ( s/243 mfg 1937) refurbished by Yugoslavia.

So, inconsistencies in the Criterion Barrel was attributed to a loose ferrule that holds the handguard on. I fixed it and 1 MOA to sub-MOA is achievable now. Same day my Douglas barrel shows up. Go figure. ThorsaxeMy Channel is geared for the Hobbyist Handloader, Reloader or Bullet caster.
2 weeks later I’ve made my decision after trying a few different methods/calibers & quantities. Results are....She’s a keeper but I see room for improvements from FA. Mainly being rubber lined.
Just a little catch up on what's been going on.
I just became an author and would like to introduce myself with a video of load developing the Eddystone 1917 30-06. I use the Audette Ladder Test method, I load up a number of cartridges using the same components. Each cartridge loaded gets a specific increment of more powder. With the 30-06, I use an […]
Loading and Shooting the M1 Garand The M1 Garand rifle is a .30 caliber, gas-operated, 8 shot clip-fed, semi-automatic rifle. Expanding gases from a fired cartridge are diverted into the gas cylinder. Here, the gases meet a long-stroke piston attached to the operating rod, which is pushed rearward by the force of this high-pressure gas. […]
Reloading 30-06 and the Sheridan Slot Gauge An on-the-fly video while I was reloading some 30-06 ammo. This was definitely off-the-cuff and hopefully I didn’t say too many dumb things.

I bought an RCBS custom seating die set for my .30-06 back in 1979 and it was pretty affordable then, but…nowadays they are pretty expensive. What if there was a way to make your custom micrometer seating die do more than one caliber? Would that be a good idea? Save a few bucks too? If […]
Reloading Ammunition to Save Money Having owned a firearms business for several years, I was (and often still am) mystified whenever I’d hear someone casually remark that “You can’t save money reloading ammunition.” Many gun shops are understandably reluctant to carry much stock when it comes to reloading for several reasons, not the least of […]
I was able to go hog hunting with Ozark Spirit a few months ago, and I had a great time!
