Hypa, time to upgrade and sell me yours!

drove around today checking out everywhere i could think of/find for gun safes, fuck the selection is super limited.. best selection by far was at the Grandview Canadian tire, but the majority were $800+

If costco still sold theirs, id snap that one up, even with the mixed reviews.. best option seems to be this buck commander bow/gun cabinet, wholesale has it on for $249



the door feels flimsy as fuck but apparently it's decently rated.. hmm
Door IS crap, and the lock is only 4 pins with no security pins. I have raked these open in less than 10 seconds.

No need to damage the door when the locks are so junk you can open them with a bobby pin.

Invest in a good safe if you have some money into the guns.

It would seem that the wait was worth it; my CZ 527 in 7.62x39 ahowed up today after three weeks touring around the country with Canada Post. The dining room now smells like Ballistol and it is now sparkling clean. From the few dry fires, the trigger is CZ crisp and the set trigger is very light - we'll see how that works at the range.

Edit - tried it on my trigger scale and it has no creep and breaks at 2.5 lbs. The set trigger breaks at 1 lbs. This is going to be a fun shooter.

The walnut is naturally quite dark but the flash pics really show the grain.

Oh I know, I've already picked out a Marlin XT-22 I'll be picking up once I get the card and I'm keeping my eyes peeled for a good deal on a nice K31. While I've been waiting to find a K31 I keep seeing nice SKS' pop up and I'm half tempted to grab one. Then I came across pictures of one with an Archangel stock and a 5/30 mag and I get even more tempted and I don't even like shooting semi auto.

It's a (financially) dangerous game!

I love my K31s - I recommend the gun to anyone that likes to shoot a lot of rifle shooting.

If anyone knows of a source for a K31 let me know, the only place that I can find them in stock is Calgary Shooting Centre, but they're a bit pricier than I really want to spend.

Zed just loves his K31 rifles. The bolt design is pretty sweet, I must say.
How about this bubba'd out K31? I'm not a big fan of bubba guns, but this one is really nice.

Wholesale Sports may have a few remaining. They are worth their price, they sell for a lot more money in Europe.

That one is interesting, though I am a wood guy. The staged trigger on the K31 and the safety are awesome as well.

It really is a wild gun. So many technological advancements for a gun that has been around since before WW2. I can see why you like it so much.

That said, I spent about an hour after the outdoor show last night cleaning my 10/22, and adding some mods to my Charger pistol. I am finding that just like cars, I prefer to tinker with my guns over anything else. Sure, I love to shoot. But there is something to be said about taking a POS (like a t97) and making it into a reliable, fun gun to shoot.

If only I could reload with that much confidence.


I'm using Hodgdon Titegroups powder, and in my 38spl it says to use .27-.32 grains.
Problem is, my Lee autodisc goes as low as .30

So, I'm stuck starting out using a minimum of .30 for my reloads. I'm a little nervous because there isn't much room for adjustment using the titegroups. Should I go ahead and load them that close to max for my first reloads?

I'm using the roands in my S&W 357 revolver.

I use Titegroup for my .357 and I had issues with the Lee Auto Load disk not always dropping the powder for the low .38SPL loads. I was getting multiple squibs which can be very dangerous.

In the end, I have just decided to only load .357 cases with heavier loads. I can get better consistency with hot loads and it also does not give you any build-up in the cylinder that the .38 shorter cases will. I had to heavily hone one of my cylinders because the previous owner shot a lot of .38SPL loads and when I fired .357 I could not get some of the cases to eject easily.

So, if you want to use Titegroup and you want to use your LEE (I have the same set-up), then you are going to have to hand measure each load. I am almost at the point where I want to hand measure everything anyways. A few squibs will do that to you.

That's what I was afraid of. Using only 357 is okay with me, as you mentioned it doesn't have the same issue with fouling.

That said, I'm not interested in messing around when it comes to containing explosions. I'm going to get my hands on a scale so I can double check the actual weight of the rounds.

I find that the Auto Disk is fine for the heavier loads of .357 and I am not competing so absolute accuracy is not needed. All other loads, I weigh each powder load by hand on my digital scale. The beam is a pain in the butt.

This is the scale I use and it is surprisingly accurate, does not drift from zero, and remembers the last unit of measure you had it set on (grains). I bought two in case one was junk but it has been perfect now for over a year.

I called them last week but apparently they're sold out with no plans to bring any more in. Sucks cause they had them down to $280.

Yeah, I bought my first K31 from them in Langley for $299 and then a case of G11 480 rounds for an additional $299. My last K31 and K11 I paid $300 each for - delivered. boo yeah.

Consider me very jealous, I saw a few in the $350-400 range on CGN when I joined a month and a half ago but now they all seem to be in the $450-600 range. If I could get one under $400 delivered I'd be happy, if I could get it for $300 I'd be insanely happy. In the meantime I'll just keep refreshing every place I know of that one could pop up on and hope I get lucky.

Hand loaded my first 10 rounds today. 124gr RN with 3.8 grains of Titegroup. OAL: 1.15"
Nothing special, but it took me a while to adjust my press just right, and to measure each load. Got a few bs rounds, but it's all good.



going to load another ten in 3.6 and 4.0 grains tomorrow before I take them out to the range to test out.

Always start your seating die screwed up (tallest) all the way and then work your way down. When you feel it hit the bullet on the upstroke, start using half turns or quarter turns and measure the OAL after each pull.

Are you not crimping afterwards?

I forgot to mention - I checked out the firearms and hunting section in the Langley CT the other day and Matt there has done a nice job. They have a CZ Canadian on sale for $505 - that's the cheapest CZ I have seen in a long time. I wanted it, but I have already blown my budget for the year. Plus I love my open sights CZ Ultralux.

It wasn't a bad show at all. Lots of fishing booths kept my brother happy, while I ogled the 1000cc/turbo Canam and polaris RZR. What a way to spend $28k!

I chatted with Ryan at the Int'l booth, and checked out the modular rifle from MDT at the Grouse River booth. Tried to make a deal with a guy on a GSG round drum too. He wanted $125 for it, and I asked if he could give me a better show price. He declined, so I walked away. I'm not paying sticker price for a magazine project that is going to eat up my time.

I'll order that shit online.

Ah, you're using jacketed projectiles. You can get away with a heavier load with the jacketed. Whereas the lead slugs that I'm using are limited to a lighter load. I have 148gr and 158gr lead, but it looks like I'll save my 148gr for when I get a different powder.

Let me know how it likes the 4 grain.

I am crimping after it's all done. It's a tight crimp, that's for sure. I took a little lead off my test rounds the other night.

As for the seating, I was pretty close to dead on with the arbitrary setting I started with, so it only took a minor change to get it right. Lucky me!

Hopefully I'll get the chance to head there later today. Funds are a little short right now, but there's always a budget for window shopping.

^^According to the Hodgdon website, the starting load for my bullet is 3.6 and maximum load is 4.1. Will most likely stick with 3.8 as I'm just shooting at paper.
