Re: What is up?

I used have the laptop on the dining table in the villa before planned epidemic. Then the local dod people (hint: they have big boats) forced all contractors onto the camp in late april. Well my laptop was a neutered used one without wifi so that kept me off of here. Then the site was down. I picked...

Re: 30-40 brass

I've been the voice in the wilderness preaching for the last couple of years of stocking up on brass and components and yet here we are again at the same point as 2013-2016. Powder Valley had seven bags of Win brass a couple of days ago. War and poverty is coming. Be ready because we are only a spar...

Re: Been shot -- Well vaccinated

They gave us a timer set at 30 minutes so we waited in the lobby with the others who had been shot, Oh I mean vaccinated. Timer went off I put in on the desk and pushed my wife out (in a wheel chair). The waiting in a safe separated environment, will cause the biggest slow down. Need some logic app...

In the Trenches

Alrighty guys. How are things on the ammo and reloading fronts?

Has the well went dry like it did ten years ago?

I hope it never gets as bad as the lollipop famine of '36.

Re: Exercise With Krag Jorgensen Rifle

It looks like it could have been taken any time from 1917 to the early 1930s. I'm betting 1917 or 1918. Not many men were clamoring to be a recruit in a guard unit after 1919 due to everyone was exhausted from the Great War and wanted get on with life. The Congress and the States were trying shed as...

Re: SN #35776 Identification Help

Does the receiver read 1896 or model 1896?

Bolt face to muzzle measures exactly 30 inches.
What does an unfired cartridge look like after it inserted and extracted. Any land and groove marks at the case mouth?

Re: Price of bullets rant

I seem to recall a wize sage advocating the last year or so about buying a case of primers and not a brick. About buying ten or twenty bags of .30-40 brass. About buying a thousand bullets and not a box of fifty or a hundred. When fat times come back just as it did in 2018 start building up. Nothing...
