    As RWO stated, relining a high pressure rifle barrel is fraught with issues waiting to happen.

    Relining an old 22 rimfire or an old 32 claiber blackpowder gun is relatively simple.

    The XRF gun will tell you composition of the material. It won't tell you if it's been heat treated, annealed, etc. and they can give incorrect readings if you don't have a...

    Cost of fuel alone makes agriculture in Hawaii a losing battle.

    Add in labor costs, shipping, etc, and it's a miracle anyone does anything except vacation there.

    I know that in most ammo, the projectile out-weighs the powder charge.

    There are a few exceptions, but honestly, why exactly are they asking? Loaded ammo is not a hazardous material, it can be...

    Back to the original post.... What can we as individuals or a group do about gun violence?

    Local smith had a shotgun that looked almost like that in a glass case.

    The problem was that the shooter had loaded a 20ga round into a 12ga shotgun. The round went into the chamber, but wasn't...

    Has this rifle always misbehaved or is this a new problem? Did your smith check the headspace? Is there a dent in the chamber from the firing pin? Lots of breat questions here... keep us posted.

    Not sure about any fee... I know I set mine up years ago, and I know they've changed things over the years as well.

    In any case, looks like the OP got it figured out, so all is good!
