I tried some practice offhand shooting with a scoped Aschutz 1710 @ 6x and my results were the same at 25 yards as shooting the same distance with the CZ's open sights. Or another way to say to say...

Shot an offhand match at my club today with a 455 Ultra Lux. Targets were an Appleseed-style "tombstone" at 100, 75, 50, and 25 yards. I wasn't particularly proud of my score, but I like the UL's...

Hmmm. Well, I'm out of my depth on metalurgy and cutting surfaces, but I'd be surprised if the nitride finish is thick enough to cause any big problems. Most of the material you'd be cutting through...

Bandit's got it. The way that CZ managed to use the same bolt face for three calibers is to have a firing pin that crushes the outside of the .22 LR rim (where the brass is folded and is thickest). ...

Ruger GP100 @ 15 yards. Pretty darn good

At some point I was moaning about the underlug on the S&W 617 -- I was actually thinking of having my smith grind it off (!) and leaving just enough material to retain the ejector rod with its...

I have tried the vibratory type and the small Harbor Freight rock tumbler. The HF unit does a better job and is adequate for my needs. I rarely clean more than 100 .38 or 9mm cases at a time. And...

Addendum: you can also change easily between sighting systems. For instance, if you want to try a red dot, it will mount easily. Some rails have channels down the center allowing use of iron sights...
