Re: The explosion in Beirut

Explosion looked strange. First one with the dirty orange/brown cloud makes me think of nitrates going off then the shock wave seconds later like a high explosive went off instead of a low explosive. Would have thought the shock wave would have preceeded the first brownish cloud. 2,750 tons of the s...

Re: So, I'm Now A Victim of Identity Theft!

I got nailed years ago when, I suspect, a clerk at a hotel sold my CC number. Took a few months to straighten it out. I put a credit lock at all the reporting agencies. Wife did the same after she got the same thing, but from a gas station.

Glad you got it straightened out.

If Shingles comes from the chickenpox virus still in your system, why not just get a chickenpox vaccine instead as a booster?

I have a Silhouette S&W 29 that looks like that, except that the top strap is about 90 degrees to the bore. Not a double charge, but an undercharge of slow powder.

I did a pair of Ruger Vaquero's in 357mag. Both leaded quite badly, but after lapping it stopped when I used the same loads. One rifle barrel too, but otherwise no.

Re: Dirty Harry 44?

Tried to find a 29 at that time, none available. Ended up with a Super Blackhawk and later an 8 3/8 Mod. 29. Shot thousands of rounds thru those guns, special and full power rounds. Must have put 20K thru the 29 and at least 15K thru the SB. The 29 is pretty loose, really needs a rebuild ( any ideas...

Re: Shorty 10 gauge

Instead of a boring bar, maybe a piloted reamer kind of like a chambering reamer, to open the bore from 10 ga to 8 ga.

Re: Lawnmower Engines....

And Tecumseh engines, I considered to be one of the best engines, long ago. Have an older Kohler K141 that I think the electronic ign. has quit. No spark at all. No wonder the people were glad to give it to me. Checked on prices for the parts, not worth it. Too bad its not one of the point ign. types.

Re: .50 Alaskan Cases In a .50-110

Looking at case dimensions, the 50-110 case base diameter is .565" and the 50 AK case is .549", so you have a difference of .016" there. You would have a pretty good bulge there. Might work for low pressure loads but would have to use the 50-110 dies to size as would be afraid that if you used the 5...

I had shingles about 3 years ago. Doc said I was good for at least another 5 years. Why not get a chickenpox booster instead? Isn't shingles just an expression of the chickenpox virus?
