  2. Wonder if a PTRD with 5 ft long barrel is stable enough for ELR , rebarrel to 416 and use our 416 HSM, 500 gr bullet .... .Here is up north guy using 585 HE in a PTRD with inserts, Light load.....Inserts are in the shape of the 14.5mm case.... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jyabm-cbwgc&feature=youtu.be HERE ia video, 585 Hubel Express and water jugs - slow motion 750 gr with 155gr RE17, just a moderate load.....Ed https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uXAo1mJqw8Y
  3. ..... It is possible rig up holders for many types setups., About shellholder supply for big cases, RCBS and others make slip in holders for shotgun cases that can work or reworked for big rimmed rifle cases... Here are various sizes....... 16ga-- .810" rim,........ 20ga-- .760" rim,.... 24ga-- .725" rim,....... 28ga .680" rim.... Ch4d and Buffalo Arms also have these larger shellholders... We fireform the 416 HSM with 65 gr of medium speed surplus powder, with rest of case filled with farina and grits mix, with a play dough plug in the neck. It is loud, so we shoot it into big container through a barrel size size hole, so the sound is muffled, so it doesn't deafen us.. It is great getting more companies making 416 caliber bullets, long target and bore rider bullets. Ed.. ....
  4. I was wondering if anyone could give me an idea of The value of my pre ban H&k Sp89 with the rare factory threaded barrel from Germany? It’s in great condition as well. Thanks for your help istvan

  6. I recently received a romanian cugir ak74. I have several questions. It is a single stack version which i don’t mind because i will mainly keep it as a collectable. I was not able to get a lot of information on this rifle. 1. With this rifle what type of furniture can be applied to it. Is there only one specific type that can be used? 2. Is there a certain place that it would be a good place to go for information and parts? I am looking for an additional magazine and the original stock if possible . It came with a tapco folding stock. Also if it would not mess up the collectors vision maybe I would put some type of muzzle device. 3.i have not fired this rifle yet, but the person I received it from said he put a few hundred rounds through it. After disassembly of it I find that hard to believe because there is hardly any wear on the moving parts. I hope I placed these questions in the proper area? any help would be appreciated. Mike
  7. Bit late but heck, I'm awake and I saw your thread. If it's the pic I think, it's a movie-fied Schmeiser. The mag well is under that foregrip thing they added and a fake mag well was added back near the trigger guard. That's also a cheap scope....the real Hearst gun was an M1 with a flashlight. Back to bed. Great to meet you guys!
  8. Bob Snapp, 90, the great Gun Craftsman, of Clare, Michigan, passed away Jan 28th.... He was an esteemed member of the American Custom Gunmakers Guild, Being its president in 1992..He liked working with Martini Cadet singleshot rifles .Worked with guys testing armor long time ago. Maybe the 1st to do 20mm necked down to 50cal We lost a great friend,,,Ed
  9. Here is picture of our 416HSM cases with screw in shellholders, for Ammomaster, etc, and slip in shellholders for regular presses Also have some for big LEE Classic and Smart Reloader presses.. A 378 WEA MAG in picture for comparison... Second is stacks of 416 HSM, about a third fireformed and the rest to be fireformed... So far total about 1700, Ed
  10. In 416 HSM got a 415 gr long target bullet 3800, with plain barrel, no brake, on intermediate action, Now my 416 HE gets same 415gr bullet to 3300.Ed
  11. Here is video of early water barrel test of the 12ga From Hell, from years ago. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c48zTpsgbuk Here is picture from that video.. http://www.gunownerstv.com/Shot%203.jpg Here is the intermediate size action for 416 HSM with test barrel, .Ed http://www.gunownerstv.com/intertargetp.jpg
  12. Here is picture of the bolt from the experimental action, with our 416 HSM case in it. Note the amount of the base size of locking lugs, the amount of area on the bolt.. http://www.gunownerstv.com/interboltp.jpg[/IMG] Here is link to guy doing special 585 HE in the EU, Good pictures............www.585he.cz We tested intermediate action with a 700HE barrel we had here. Just temporary to test strength. 1000 gr over 3100.. Action worked fine.. Ed.
  13. Ammo prices are up hurricane s and other storms are wreaking havic and to culminating Joe I hope you find the ass wipe who is putting needles in the strawberries in your neck of the woods. Also trying to find parts for my pistol.
  14. Experimental intermediate size action with the Montana PH, for comparison. It is an experimental action for our 416 HSM, to do our speed testing with and get a better action than Cheytac size actions, for bigger case ELR use, without going all way up to more expensive, huge actions. It is big long round style action that can take our 416 HSM, almost 1.6" diameter and .800" bolt, with locking lugs nearly as big as most BMG actions.... ED http://www.gunownerstv.com/intermediates.jpg
  15. About 416 cal bullets............ The heaviest 550 gr for Extreme ELR probably be best 8 to 1 twist , in 416 caliber bullet, and 520 gr 9.5 to 1, and 470gr 10 to one, Some barrels I picked up are 10 to 1....... Now a novel idea is to lighten rear of bullet with small shallow hole drilled in base, might do better long range.which would allow 10 to one barrel stabilize the heavier 550 gr bullets for ELR. Making bullet nose heavier makes it more stable in flight, needing less spin, like our hollow base 585 cal minie bullets only need 48 to 1 twist, or less while out regular 585 bullets need about 24 to 1 to stabilise them.............. The winner of the King Of 2 Mile shoot last week was using 416 Barrett with a 1 to 10 twist, with a 500 gr CEB Lazer bullet, ...Robert Brantley, with Manners Stocks.... Paul Philips was third with a 416... GOOD NEWS-- There is now an importer and seller of our 585 HE brass getting set up here, in US, hopefully will be in stock, few weeks........ http://bertrambrass.com .. .. Caleb Hallet.. Have got another intermediate size action besides the Montana PH our guys working on, to do speed testingwith. It is big long REM style action that can take our 416 HSM, ED
