Spent shells make great snap caps. All you need to do is knock the spent primers out and stuff pencil erasers into the pockets. I have some 12 gauge shells modified like this back in the early 80s...

I agree. My MKII mags have fed untold numbers of thousands of rounds in over 40 years using the original springs. And they still feed with super reliability.

We had the largest fire in state history (208,000 acres) last year. Now, the last 2 days have created "flood warnings" from fairly small (1/2") rainfall over the burn areas.

You're correct that the bullet pushes the (low oxygen) air out ahead of the bullet, but it's then sitting right in front of the muzzle. They say it takes about 16" of barrel for powder to burn...

While a drill press and padded vice is ideal for removing the rivet, it's really not a necessity. You can remove the bulk of the splayed rivet end with some careful file or dremel work. Then use a...

I've noticed my pistols don't smoke until they get warmed up good. Then every round smokes - using the same ammo as before.

Went by our west WM store this afternoon. Shelves were pretty bare except for AutoMatch. But they had 48 boxes of that sitting in the case.

I didn't buy any though, because I've still got plenty.
