Discussion in 'Main Message Board' started by Forum Boss, Jan 25, 2008.
I've gotten them out with bore brushes inserted from the breech just like when cleaning. If it's a normal pressure load, the remains usually pull out following the brush. If that fails, you can use an aluminum cleaning rod to try and engage the mouth of the stuck case at the throat. If you're able to make good contact, a tap with a light hammer may dislodge it. If that should fail, you can soak the chamber in Hoppe's hoping that the brass bond will be broken enough to have the steps mentioned work. It takes Hoppe's about three days to really start working on the brass. Be patient. If that fails, it's time to see a gunsmith, or a good machinist able to turn a fitted broken case remover. If the case let go due to high pressure, you may want to see a gunsmith to insure the chamber still gauges correctly.
Would it be possible to include a section titled "Political Crap". I don't think the Main Message Board (or anywhere else for that matter) needs to be infected with personal political views. I don't believe we should have to sift through a list of political topics to find threads that discuss subjects relating to shooting.
Then your second point represents a counter argument to your first point about what we all need to do. If we need to do it, put it in a place where those who "need" it can find it.
I get enough of this stuff, political parties notwithstanding, all day and all evening long and I don't want to have to deal with it on a forum that's intended to focus on "accurate shootng".
Would it be possible to advise where German Salazar's archives are posted, please? Thank you!
German's archives are off line and no longer accessible per his wishes.
Thank you forum boss. Now that the garbage is emptied we can get back to the shootin' stuff.
Taking a dump on someone's for sale thread is extremely rude in my opinion. There's a lot of it going on.
Our Classifieds Rules clearly state that this is NOT tolerated. If you see egregious examples of this, notify the admins and we will take action. A couple guys have been booted from the board for this behavior. I should add that a Forum ban is permanent, forever, with no discussion, no appeal EVER. You're done, gone, toast, history.
Thanks for killing all the "Trump" threads. I come here to exchange gun info, and this is not the place to argue politics. I am one of the very few left leaning members.
I know, I know, don't click on it if you don't want to see it But, some times I get curious. So much hate out there, that some times I have to put my 2 cents in.
I try to be civil, respectful and what I get back is name calling and insults.
Thanks for taking it down.
Not wanting to sound like a Nazi, but in this day and age I think a policy of zero tolerance for behavior that is derogatory, insulting or threatening needs to be in place. It is always easier to ease up on the reins as opposed to trying to rein in a runaway team. If you've nothing positive to add, cease with the lip! This is a forum about accuracy and reloading. Let's stick to that.
Actually, I think we all appreciate the swift and decisive action. Enough is enough and personally I'd rather talk about achieving accuracy and improving my score. The rest was settled in the recent election and cheap rhetoric either way won't change a thing and certainly not how accurate our loads shoot.
There is the IGNORE MEMBER function and now the IGNORE THREAD function. Absolutely no reason to whine to the Forum Boss anymore. Start your own threads.
In the past few days I have banned two long-standing members, savagedasher and alinwa. The first was banned for publishing dangerous load suggestions. Alinwa posted claims that a 6mmBR could safely match or exceed velocities of a .243 AI which is patently false. Alinwa also posted extremely hostile, off-color insults directed toward other Forum members and the site administrators. This won't be tolerated.
Members who break the rules or post dangerous information will be banned quickly and permanently. There will be no hand-holding or discussion.
Often the worst-offending members have big egos and they think the Forum should bend the rules to tolerate them. The reality is that, with 43,700+ members, we don't need ANY particular member. Break the rules, and you're history. Simple as that.
