    Where can I get a Weatherby headspace/bump gauge???

    Awesome, thanks guys. I ordered the .400 gauge and it worked perfectly. Come to find out I was bumping my brass .012 which was leading to case separation at around 5x firing on the brass. Because of this handy little gauge I am able to dial in a .0015 bump -- thanks again for the help!

    Sidearms & Scatterguns Kimber 1911's

    Gunsmithing Dallas area gunsmith to true Rem 700 receiver.

    I have used Gene Williams and S&S. Both are great, but my vote goes to Gene Williams in Princeton (by a small margin). He built my 257 Wby and it is a lazer Stic built my 280 AI and it is a shooter too.

    Can brass be too old (age) to reload???

    My Dad dropped off some 7mm Mag brass that is 1979/1980 era brass that was once fired. Can brass be too old to reload? It was stored properly in a low humidity area and looks OK. Just didn't know if brass becomes brittle or something when its old.

    Leica 1600 Rangefinder-Is this a good deal?

    I have a chance to get a Leica 1600 Range Finder-Factory repaired, but new for $519....is this an "ok" deal or a "get off your butt and go get them now" deal? They also have a nice set of Leupold Rx1000i yd range finder too for only $239 is the Leica worth the extra $$$?
