1. Due to the amount of SPAM from foreign countries lately, we have made the decision to manually approve all new members. While we regret that this must be done and the added time that it will take for new members to be approved, it is necessary at this time. We hope to have legitimate new members approved in a timely manner, no longer than a couple of hours. If the Administrators are online at the time, it can be as soon as a couple of minutes. Thank you for your patience.

    friction fit. The holes are just a little smaller then the .308 cases and being brass I just hit them with a mallet until they wouldn't go in any further.

    I've been slacking quite a bit on posting....Oldest boy is in Boy Scouts now, and youngest is in Cub Scouts. Which has me running all over trying to keep up. But here a few shots to show I really have been working on stuff.


    A dangler set up that is available if anyone is interested.

    Nice Skab. Those all look great. I am loving my little ulu.
    My father in law actually wants one now. I will have to tell him about these.
