    125 Years of excellent service.

    G'Day Fella's, I was having a play with some of my J.M. Browning designed firearms, the other day (on the anniversary of Mr J.M.Browning's passing, November 26).

    Powder/Poly Coated Cast Bullets

    G'Day Fella's, Some time ago, I cast up a heap of bullets for my .375 H&H and .404 Jeffery rifles.

    G'Day Fella's, Here is a link, that helps explain What Agenda 21 is, and How it is being applied. This is from an Australian politician and perspective.

    An inside view...............

    G'Day Fella's, No shortage of reloaders, seem to be a bit in the dark about what's on the inside of a Rifle and Pistol barrel. So I set up a used .308 Win barrel in my milling machine, and removed a bit of the exterior of it, to give you an inside look. Here's a view of the chamber area...

    Old eye's and New options

    G'Day Fella's, As a result of not getting any younger, I've had to start wearing glasses for reading. I also have to wear them when, when I'm shooting a handgun (and iron sighted rifles)..... until now. I had previously designed and then machined up a mount and then fitted it and a Trijicon RMR...

    Something a bit smaller for a change...

    G'Day Fella's, For a few years now, I have had a Norinco M701, bolt action (a Chinese copy of Pre 64 Winchester M70), in 7.62x39.

    Older in particular, Dovetailed Centrefire rifles
