I'm Still Here

Postby riceone » Wed Nov 19, 2014 10:06 pm

Its been awhile since have posted but I'm still up and around at 80. Still work in my shop making parts and am now putting together a 22/250 using a T99 action and a 7x57 using a T38 action. My collecting has sort of stopped but I still have all I ever had and enjoy looking at them. Its getting difficult to find sporter stock to put on Japanese rifles. I still have the SEMCA meeting in February. Thanks for all the good memories. Roy (riceone)

I was having a tidy up the other day and found the die you made for me to size .308 cases to 6.5 Japanese cases . I have it stored in the original box you shipped it in. I haven't converted any cases for a while, but it is there for when I do.
Regards
Peter.

I have not been very active on any board in several year, but I do slip in every once in awhile to just keep in touch. I sold a swadge die to a guy several years back and he had not used it till now and found it would not screw in his press so he sent it back and I re-cut the threads and sent it back. He is going to make about 300 cases out of 243 brass to shot the rifle at Camp Perry. I'm interested in seeing how he comes out. I told him that i remembered reading in the Rifleman back in the early 60's that there was one or two fellows that shot at Camp Perry using rifles build on Japanese Arisaka action. I may try to find the article - I have all the magazines since I joined in 1960. This past winter I made two sporters and would post pictures if it is alright with the moderator. One is a 22/250 on a T99 action and the other is a 7x57 on a T38. riceone
