    Steel case vs brass case ammo

    I have a 5.45x39 AR nothing fancy, no chrome lining, it has 3k down the pipe, mostly all Russian or Bulgarian surplus all corrosive primed, all steel...runs like a watch, shoots about 3moa with surplus ammo. recently Hornady made brass, bullets an dies available for this cartridge, shoots sub moa with hand loads...been pulling bullets from surplus an loading good bullets on the steel cases for coyotes (don't have to chase my brass) sub moa as well, case capacity is a little less, Our military uses steel cases for most all the big stuff, 20 an 30mm etc 🤷‍♂️ your mileage may vary, but in today's ammo market...

    What size of rim do I need for my truck?

    Mazda's are the same as a ford ranger for a bunch of years (ford owned them) 15" ranger rim from a similar year truck would work. . . junkyard guys could probably square ya away for $20 for a rim an tire. just bought one here in flag for my daughters ranger. . .
  3. I heard a story a few years back of a cape and $10k traded to another hunter for his full hide for a life size mount. . .

    WTB .577/455 Martini/Henry 3 Die Set

    Reloading for the 577-450 is an expensive proposition, check Ebay for dies, probably gonna set ya back a hundo or so, couple guys on Gunbroker sell bullets the proper size, lots of the brass is berdan primed, no good options for repriming that now. Good luck, they're a blast to shoot !
  5. Get a packet of good 'ol koolaid, any flavor will do but orange seems to work best, dissolve it in a pint or so of water, put your brass in a suitable container (plastic) and cover with the koolaid you can add a little more water if need be, it will safely take the tarnish off, soak longer if need be ...rinse an dry. been using this method for cleaning range brass for 30 years or better...
