    I am, Nelson. Signed up for the long range aggregate, next Friday thru Sunday, sling division, palma rifle. 350 shooters in all, should be a hoot. Hoping it doesn't rain...

    Reloading for Semi auto

    You will also want a hard primer cup.

    Reloading for Semi auto

    No crimp. You will want to bump then shoulders a little more than for a bolt action (.003-.004), but case life is short enough with an M1A you aren't giving anything up.

    Yes they did. Not sure when they switched to the current version, probably in the seventies.

    Have 4 for $10. Sorry but would never have 50. Please contact via PM.

    Those are gone but I'll probably have more soon. I sent a PM when you first posted, but it looks like your account doesn't accept messages.

    Cornmeal black powder filler

    Never loaded for cap and ball, but black powder should never have an air gap between the bullet and powder as it does not burn progressively like smokeless and will have major pressure issues. I expect that is why you are hearing reference to fillers for that application. For muzzle loading rifles, at least, there are vented nipples which can help with ignition and some brands of primers are definitely hotter than others.

    5 To 1 Odds.....Why Not?

    Sounds fun. Once you get a good load, head north, the higher the better, during the summer for the actual shooting. Left hand twist will help, but spin drift will be the least of your worries ;-). We shoot at 1000 with irons, coat and sling all the time at Ben Avery, the 10 ring is 20".
  12. Thinking you meant to type 0.002. Not understanding how setting the die for a longer case neck can maintain your shoulder datum.
  13. I'd keep shooting the current barrel until it was done. How many rounds are through it? Do you have access to a bore scope? Once the barrel is shot out, and you'll know, I'd go ahead and re barrel to the same chambering as you a;ready have the dies. Cant see that an elk would know the difference. You mention having to trim cases every firing. Something seems wrong there, an AI case should stretch very little. Are you sure your reamer/chamber requires neck turning the .270 brass when necking down? That's not much of a diameter reduction. My 6.5-06 does fine w/o neck turning, neck clearance wise, using Winchester .270 brass, although I do use lightly turned necks for my hunting rounds.

    Custom Gunstocks

    I believe Dennis Olsen (Montana?) is still doing work. Seems like there is a company called Canyon Creek that was making some nice wood stocked customs. At the next price point up would include the guild builders. PL Holehan inc in Tucson builds some great rifles. Here is my guild member built .257 Roberts Mauser sporter, is this what you are thinking of?
