Strike Through Text Option now on-line

You may now use the Strike Through option in the post text editor.

There is a square blank button located at the end of the options on the right. I could not get the 'S' to show up, but the button still works.

    I have a friend who converted a Soviet PTRD anti-tank rifle to 20mm. I think he occasionally rolls his own. He might have some tips for you. Or you might try There are a few psychos there for whom .50 BMG just isn't big enough.

      Which 20mm? I've been reloading the 20mmx138B for the Lahti for many years. Takes some expensive tooling but once you're set up it's not much different than any other cartridge. Original cartridges must also be converted from the Berdan to Boxer primers. Easy to do if you have a lathe and related tooling.
      Only press I know of that'll handle the cartridge is the Rock Crusher sold by Dave Cumberland (the Old Western Scrounger). Dies are available from several sources. WC872 powder is plentyful and cheap. 20mm Vulcan bullets can be used in both the US 20mm and the Lahti/Solothurn cartridge and are also available from several sources.
      If it's the Lahti/Solothurn you're interested in, I can give you more details.
