Bathroom construction

This had been bare studs and bare subfloor for far too long. Tile floor and homemade vanity. Still gotta construct the upper half of the vanity area. https://imgur.com/OHA6GdP.jpg Homemade douglas fir trim wrapping the shower stall. https://imgur.com/CkE7HMd.jpg The big stuff is done in the bathroom...

Re: Bradshaw-Martin SWC for Ruger 357 Maxi

5 shots at 100 yards from a 10 1/2" Ruger Maxi. Shot by Lee with iron sights. Approximately 3" group. Load was 17.0 IMR4227, velocity 1409 fps. I have to admit that I did not expect the long, unsupported nose to shoot well, but this is very good. 8-) http://www.singleactions.com/images/194...

Bradshaw-Martin SWC for Ruger 357 Maxi

This bullet was designed by legendary IHMSA shooter David Bradshaw and his friend Lee Martin. It was designed specifically for moderate loads in the Ruger 357 maximum. David and Lee have tested this bullet out to 200 yards with good results, as discussed at SingleActions.com . At this point I'm not ...

Re: Tile floor for living room & kitchen

Day 6: the tile is finished. After 12 years, I finally have a floor, just like a real house. Yea! :) There's still some detail work to do in the living room -- lighting, trim, a little sheetrock and paint here and there. But I gotta go back to making a living for a while so I can get some rest. :D h...

Tile floor for living room & kitchen

1/4" durock on thinset grout in preparation for tile.

Due to space limitations I can only work on about half the room at a time. Once that half is tiled then I'll shuffle the appliances and furniture around so that I can work on the other half.

Re: cabinets

There are still several loose ends to tend to, but the homemade kitchen cabinets and backsplash are up and running. Now on to the next phase of construction.

Re: cabinets

A small wall cabinet to fit in the corner.

After trying it both ways, I prefer to expose the knotty back side of the ACX douglas fir plywood, rather than the smooth front side. The smooth side tends to be boring, though it varies from sheet to sheet.

cabinets

I've been neglecting shooting projects while I build cabinets. I had never built cabinets until now so it has been a learning experience and many newbie mistakes were made, nonetheless the cabinets are functional, and I'm gradually getting better & faster at it. The visible pieces are local blow...

Re: S & W N-frame Project

What's next? -- try drilling a hollow base -- try a slightly longer (say 0.050") ogive -- try a GC version that is loaded full throttle. Ross Seyfried recommended full throttle loads for his 1 MOA revolver project. -- try the control bullet with 300 MP and with Lil Gun. That's all I can think o...
