      Slow Running Drain Question

      I have a second floor bathroom sink drain that initially drains ok but then starts to back up into the sink after the water runs for 30 seconds or so. When the water is shut off, it slowly drains down. When the water becomes flush with the opening of the drain, the drain will belch an air...

      In What Ways Can Primers Fail?

      I experienced a half dozen "poof" loads in a batch of 357 Magnums I recently loaded and shot. In each one, the bullet went down range but with very little recoil or report, less than a light 38 target load. I am blaming my Lee Auto Disk measure because it has some inconsistencies in its...

      Snowblower Engine Repair Question - Won't Start

      I have the proverbial Toro snowblower that won't start. It's a 2010 21" Power Clear with a R-Tek 2-cycle engine. It's been a good starter (1-2 pulls) for years but the past two years it has been taking 3-4 pulls. Two years ago, changing the spark plug improved this but last year, it didn't...

      Dry Neck Lube Application Question

      I starting using Imperial dry neck lube for full length sizing of my 6BR Norma cases because it eliminates the need to clean spray lube residue from inside the neck prior to dropping powder. I use a Forster custom honed full length sizing die and Imperial sizing lube on the body of the case...

      Alliant Pistol Powders - Has Anyone Seen Them for Sale?

      In the past year, I have seen no Alliant powders for sale with the exception of one can of 2400 for sale at a LGS and a very brief supply of 2400 at MidwayUSA. I have seen not a spec of Bullseye or Unique at the usual brick and mortar and online retailers where other powders are available. Am...

      For those who like to sling big heavy chunks of lead downrange, what is your favorite .45 Colt powder? I like 8.0 grains of Unique with a 250 grain bullet. My supply of Unique is nearly exhausted however, so I will be experimenting with W231, Bullseye and 700-X.

      Seeking Recommendations For a 1911 Adjustable Rear Sight

      I'm looking for recommendations on a 1911 adjustable rear sight. This is for a Springfield Ronin 45 that has a Novak style dovetail cut. It will primarily be a range gun and not for carry. My preference is probably a blank sight with no dots but I imagine that most good sight products will...

      Questions on Loading Small Primer 45 ACP Cases

      A couple questions about small primer 45 ACP cases. 1) For those who use these cases, do you make any adjustments to the load data due to difference in primer size? 2) Will once-fired cases of this type typically have crimped in primers or are they like traditional non-military primers? Thanks

      Colt 1911 Competition Model thoughts

      I found this Colt 1911 Competition model 45 ACP at a local shop this afternoon. Asking price was $999 which is about $50 over MSRP. I left it there because I have never really looked much at Colt for a 1911. I know that Colt is synonymous with 1911s but didn't feel that I knew enough to buy...
