    Educational Zone #102 – Casting Lead Bullets – pt. 1

    I then open the mold, but the bullets often will adhere to one side of the mold.

    You just tap the hinge with the hammer and the bullet will fall free.

    Close the mold and fill it again, and you are on your way.

    When you first start casting the first couple of bullets will need to heat up the mold.

    Here is the first bullet between two others.

    You can see that the base of the bullet did not fill completely.

    I just added it back to the pot.

    I always place a towel over the holding pot to catch the bullets.

    They are “soft” as they come out of the mold, and dropping them on a hard surface can dent them.

    After a few seconds, you can dump them into the holding pot.

    When casting big bullets like these 510 grain bullets, you will use lead pretty quickly.

    As the level in the melting pot drops, I just add a piece of lead,

    …stir it really well, 

    and then flux the mixture again.

    Stir it to mix it well.

    Then I scrape off the dross and I am ready to go again.

    Keep at this for a while and before you know it, you have a pot full of bullets.

    Conclusion: In part two, we talk about sizing, lubricating, and reloading these bullets.

    The One-Rifle Rifle: Ruger Gunsite Scout Rifle Review

    by G&A Staff | December 24th, 2011

    Back in 1984, Col. Jeff Cooper wrote an article for Gun Digest titled “The Scout Rifle Idea.” Basically, Cooper said that the perfect general-purpose rifle, “if you could own only one,” was a short, light .308 bolt action equipped with a barrel-mounted long-eye-relief, low-magnification scope for quick, both-eyes-open aiming.

    He also laid out a full set of other specs involving loading, magazine design, accuracy requirements and handling characteristics. Shooters and rifle manufacturers have been arguing about these ideas ever since, and Cooper’s name has become synonymous with the concept.

    For years, Cooper consulted with various manufacturers about commercial production of his brainchild. Several companies have since offered their own “Scout Rifle” designs (notably Steyr and Savage), plus “semi-Scouts” such as the now-discontinued Ruger M77 Frontier.

    But now, more than a quarter century after the genesis of the original idea, Ruger has introduced its own formal rendition. It’s called the Gunsite Scout Rifle, in honor of the Arizona training facility Cooper founded in 1979. While the GSR is not an exact manifestation of every feature Cooper called for, it’s about as close as anyone has come.

    GSR FEATURES


    The Ruger GSR is a new platform in the M77 family, featuring standard Mauser 98-derived features such as controlled round feed, Mauser-type claw extractor, a receiver-mounted fixed blade ejector and a receiver-mounted, three-position safety, but with a 10-round detachable box magazine. The GSR also has the recently developed Ruger LC6 trigger, which—thanks to its improved internal geometry—has a cleaner let-off than the previous M77 trigger.

    Continuing M77 features include a flat-sided, flat-bottomed receiver with a forward-angling front bedding screw secured to the receiver’s integral recoil lug, integral receiver top mounts for the supplied Ruger rings and a one-piece stainless steel bolt and handle. You can get that bolt handle on either side; the GSR is available both in right- and left-hand versions.

    The GSR’s 16½-inch medium-contour, cold-hammer-forged barrel has a Mini-14 protected post front sight, paired with a receiver-mounted, adjustable ghost-ring rear. A six-inch barrel-mounted Picatinny rail offers a variety of optics options—including long-eye-relief Scout scopes available from a variety of manufacturers, as well as nonmagnifying electronic and reflex sights. The Mini-14/SR-556-type flash suppressor brings the overall barrel length to 19 inches, but helps reduce the .308’s muzzle flash from the relatively short barrel. The 5/8-24 muzzle threads also allow removal of the flash suppressor in case you don’t want anything hanging out there.

    The matte-black oxide hammer-forged 4140 steel barrel and investment-cast 4140 steel receiver sit in a weather resistant black/gray laminate stock with conventional front and rear QD sling swivel studs and a cut-checkered grip and forearm. “Gunsite Scout Rifle” is laser-engraved on the grip cap to note Ruger’s design collaboration with the staff of Gunsite Academy.


    The stock is designed with a minimal .31-inch difference between the drop at comb and heel, to facilitate the square-behind-the-rifle firing stance Cooper favored and Gunsite teaches. The stock also features a one-inch soft rubber recoil pad, with three half-inch spacers that allow the length of pull to be adjusted from 121/2 to 141/4 inches for individual requirements or to provide proper fit with outerwear or defensive gear.

    The GSR’s magazine well and triggerguard are fiberglass-reinforced nylon. The magazine release is a push-forward Mini-14 type “quick drop” paddle just ahead of the triggerguard. Each GSR comes equipped with one 10-round magazine, and five-round accessory magazines are also available.

    The Accuracy International tapered stagger-feed magazines require cartridges to be loaded by pushing them down against the follower, then backward under the feed lips, rather than snapping them down directly from above. This means they are therefore guided forward under the magazine lips during the bolt stroke, so the controlled-round Mauser-type bolt actually functions as a push-feed during most of its travel. This results in a notably different feel to the feeding cycle than with other M77s, and it might take some getting used to (at least until Ruger perfects its own proprietary polymer magazines).

    BUILDING THE RIFLE

    The GSR actually only took about one year to put together from Ruger’s “let’s do it” moment until the product launch in December 2010. After planning meetings in Arizona between Ruger and Gunsite personnel, Ruger’s New Hampshire plant kicked into gear.

    Veteran Ruger engineer Roy Melcher was given creative oversight for the project. The GSR would be his final accomplishment prior to his death in December, 2010. Ruger Product Manager Mark Gurney says that Melcher was the one who mandated that the GSR have only a 16.5-inch barrel (Cooper’s original template called for a minimum 18-inch tube). “Roy was a curmudgeon,” remembers Gurney. So when others were suggesting 18 inches, Melcher simply said, “No! It’s got to be 16½ inches. The Frontier has a 16½-inch barrel and it handles beautifully.” So 16½ inches it was.

    From the moment the GSR premiered, it has generated a lot of comment from Cooper purists taking Ruger to task for violating one or another of the late Colonel’s original precepts. “The GRS isn’t really a controlled feed mechanism and can’t be loaded from the top” (the magazine lip issue). “The rear sight isn’t really a ghost ring” (the ring is too thick and the aperture too small). “It weighs too much” (Cooper really wanted it to be no more than 6.5 lbs). “There’s only one sling swivel stud on the fore-end” (Cooper’s recommended Ching Sling can’t be installed). “There doesn’t need to be a flash suppressor” (Cooper’s doctrine was for a military “scout” to shoot once and immediately move to a different location). And, of course, “The barrel’s too short!”

    Well, I stand with Melcher on that last one. In his original writings on the idea of a .308 Scout, Cooper observed that 2,700 fps for a 155-grain from an 18½-inch barrel duplicates the ballistics of the original .30-06 load from a 24-inch barrel, which “sufficed very well for Theodore Roosevelt and Stewart Edward White in Africa.” Today’s factory loads with advanced propellants equal or exceed that with 16½-inch barrels. When it comes to a Scout Rifle, I think shorter is better—particularly if you’re going to hang a flash suppressor on the end of it.

    According to Gurney, “We believe the Ruger GSR is a credible rendition according to Cooper’s concepts. We didn’t try to blindly follow any strict recipe, because Cooper didn’t have a strict recipe. He had guidelines; guidelines based upon an ideal, and Ruger and Gunsite have together followed those ideals as best we could while keeping costs and development time reasonable.”

    Personally, I’m not so much interested in how closely the GSR adheres to the Cooper’s precise specifications as I am in how well it shoots, functions, and handles. It does all of these things extremely well. Particularly the shooting.

  • Cozy Log Cabin- How I built it for less ...
    by George Freund on November 27, 2013 at 3:01 PM
    2373 Views - 0 Comments

    This simple, but cozy bush cabin was constructed in my spare time, and was completed in 8 months. My youth group, and several people from my church were a huge help. I wouldn't have been able to complete it so quickly without them.

    Of course there are things that I can, and could have done, to make sure this cabin lasts 100+ years:

    1- The logs could have been debarked before I used them.

    2- In the future I can jack the cabin up and put it on footings so that the logs will be kept off the ground.

    3- In the future I can put a metal roof on, to replace the tarp.

     

    So why didn't I just do the above 3 things right away? I was under a strict time & budget constraint. I only had $500 and I had exactly 8 months to complete the cabin (it's a long story). Although I had a lot of people who helped on various occasions, I worked alone most of the time, often in temperatures of -30, with only a chainsaw, an axe, and my arms. Although I had to take a couple of shortcuts (because of my constraints), I do not regret any decision I made in the cabin's construction. If I chose to build the cabin exactly the way I wanted it to be built, I wouldn't have been able to build it at all. In the future, I plan to build a bigger log home. And when I do, I will be sure to take the time to build the cabin exactly the way it needs to be built.

     

    Cabin details:

    - I have no previous experience in construction, only a passion to learn and build.

    - The cabin is 10'x10'. While the roof section is 11'x16'

    - It has 52 logs, approximately 25 inches in circumference at the base. I left them with the bark on.

    - It only cost me $15 worth of gas, and $30 worth of oil to build the entire cabin with my chainsaw.

    - The floor is set on 9 patio stones, with 2"x4"s for support, and 2.25" thick rough-cut Poplar floor boards on top.

    - I made square notches in the logs, which I found to be a sturdy way to fit the logs together.

    - We didn't use any machinery (except for a chainsaw). Just good ol' fashioned man power.

    - I used a heavy-duty tarp to cover the roof.

    - To fill the gaps between the logs I used brown-coloured insulation. Not the best way to fill the gaps, but it's certainly cheap, quick, and efficient.

    - Since the cabin is small, I didn't place it on any footings. The logs are sitting directly on the level ground. I'll see in the years to come, how well the cabin holds up. But it's already lasted through a whole winter and spring without shifting, which is good.

    REMEMBER THE KENYAN MALL SHOOTING?

    This episode proves my analysis. A witness near a grenade explosion who was also shot in the leg is interviewed by the media. HOW FAKE! A grenade is around 150 decibels tops. Look at our prepper suffering from 140, and he wasn't shot in the leg. He's down and out for the count.

I would expect conflict would mean the end of electricical power as we have known it for years. It will be the stone age. Whatever you thought your worst nightmare ever was magnify it exponentially. Many listen and few heed the warnings that this is very, very close upon us unless our despot leaders understand their recklessness. It a heartbeat what we know can cease to exist. The Russiand did another dry run on Britain yesterday. All they had to do was fire, and we would never know what hit us. And you voted for these idiots perhaps. May God have mercy upon you.

    Development

    Casting for the first season began September 2011. Casting for a second season began April 2012 The series' third season premiered on October 29, 2013.

    Dräger Equipment, Wise Food Storage Company and the United States Gold Bureau are sponsors of the show.

    Reception

    Doomsday Preppers has received varied reviews. Neil Genzlinger in The New York Times condemned it as an "absurd excess on display and at what an easy target the prepper worldview is for ridicule," noting, "how offensively anti-life these shows are, full of contempt for humankind."[6] Nevertheless, "The program has been a ratings bonanza, with a 60-percent male audience, with an average age of 44."[7] "Doomsday Preppers is the network's most-watched series".[8] Brooklyn Bagwell, casting director for the second season, claimed it was the highest-rated show in the history of the National Geographic Channel.

    In response to negative comments, Jay Desai, who was featured in the shows first season, responded: "We don’t make it an obsession like some folks but we do spend a fair amount of time and money on it. ... you can’t always rely on the government or society to help you. The more people that are prepping minded, the better off we’ll all do."

    "Pilot" June 27, 2011

    Dennis McClung and family show their backyard food production system known as the Garden Pool; Lisa Bedford (The Survival Mom) takes urban preparation to a new level in preparing for a financial collapse; The Kobler and Hunt families combine forces in order to ensure food production through an economic collapse. David Kobler and Scott Hunt are the owners of the Practical Preppers company that provides the expert evaluation in latter episodes.

    Highlights: Garden Pool — Urban farming - Tilapia - Aquaculture - Aquaponics - Wood gas - Alternative fuels — Combat information
