    Imperial Sizing Die Wax

I put a few drops on my palms and roll 4-5 pieces of brass between my palms, I add a few more drops about every third set of brass. The reason why I use this method is...

    Dialing in a M70 - what does it take?

    I believe they retain most of their mass, although I have not recovered a hammer bullet after shooting an animal the last bear I took I hit quartering towards me and the exit was just beyond the rib cage. The exit was about 2 inches in diameter. It was not a big bear but the gun was sizeable a...

    Dialing in a M70 - what does it take?

    I would recommend trying Hammer bullets as they seem to be very insensitive to jump and I and others find they are very effective on the animals that get hot with them.
