Re: a tale of 2 Bannermans

I didn't realize that one could set the barrel of a M-N back far enough to cut a 30/06 chamber into it.... :shock: Of course the .311 to .313 bore diameter should relieve a lot of the pressure from a .308 bullet.... ;)

Re: Small Learning Curve............

Duncan, Duncan, Duncan..... You know not what you've done...... Next will be carbide bits, then a Quick Change tool post, followed by a collet set and on and on, ad infinitum.... Then that small bench top mill will complete your needs. (and the tooling for it never ends.) (I know from which I speak)...

Re: Pentax ME

My first decent SLR was a ME Super and it did pretty much the same thing to me. Being a tightwad, I discovered that you could usually squeeze an extra frame or two out of the end of a roll of film.
