    So, Who Is At The Bench Today?

    Those are way beyond anything of the quality this Llama needs. I think ACE Hardware will give me some choices. Of course I happen to know someone that produces bearings commercially so a little text to them would get me some on the way for free. (Yes Virginia, I know people.) Greg

    So, Who Is At The Bench Today?

    Today I am sorting the brass out from my indoor session on Thursday. It was a new range, too me, that was quite nice. The overall distance available was disappointing so I just worked on 10 yards and under with a 380 and one of my 45's. The 380 is a Llama and the rear sight came loose and fell out. The Internet told me they use a small detent ball dropped in a dimple in the dovetail and then the two adjustment screws, left and right push against the ball that nestles in a pocket in the sight. I found out the detent ball for a Savage bolt action extractor fits well though I am on the hunt for a 0.150 ball vs. the 0,125 I used. A BB at 0.177 was just a bit too large. to fit well. I ordered a 10 round Colt Pony magazine yesterday. I believe it will slide into the Unique target pistol I got last month and if so I am home free. I've already got Young Manufacturing, Dan Young, set up to cut the new magnetize catch notch and if the magazine runs George Urmsted at BTE will cut and TIG weld the magazine to shorten it up for. If this works out the world will beat a path to my door as these are scarcer then hen's teeth. I sent a letter out yesterday to Tactical Ordnance and have three barrels in the queue for the near future. One will be a 24" 20 Practical Remage varmint weight barrel and the others will be a 22 LBC and a 243 LBC , both 22" threaded, for my Ruger RAP when I pull the Grendel tube. I will have someone locally, maybe Bruno's or Weapon Works, pull the original Remington tube. I believe I can do the Ruger myself as it is similar to the Savage set up. TO will also be providing me the new nuts that use the Savage wrench pattern. I already have the GO gauges so that won;t be an issue. I do have to order a Klinedorst (sp) fixture to reset the recoil luck on the Remington. I'll write hem up as they are built and fired. I have a package coming in, I hope, with a custom prototype of a 6.8 case cutter fixture that is wandering around USPS system and hope to have t this week to give it a whirl. I'll document that one. I started the ball rolling on it when I contacted a fellow that makes the tools but didn't have a 6.8 version. I furnished him some cut/trimmed cases in my A-30 so he could work with what I wanted that will translate over to several other 6.8 based shortened wildcats. Greg

    That's a nice selection. Let us know how they work out. Greg
  10. Possibly Pepper can fix it. more. I just edited the title so perhaps that will help. Greg
  11. Point taken so should we scrub the entire site for E2 stuff or? Greg

    New Burn Rate Chart - Nov. 2019

    If you wait a month it should be in the new Hodgdon 2020 magazine/manual. Greg
  13. The thread is locked and there is a note at the bottom with an explanation as to why it is locked and E2 is banned. I would look at it as an informational point ta this time. Greg
  14. Yes they were called Cliff Notes....(VBG) Greg

    New Burn Rate Chart - Nov. 2019

    They are a pretty academic set of numbers. It does at least let us make a WAG at what powders may or may not work in a given cartridge/bullet combination,. Lot to lot variation can make this chart look like gobbledygook but ya' gotta start somewhere... Greg
