    If the shot is round and graphite coated, keep it. Even mixed 7 1/2 to 9 sizes will bring 1.50 per $ and cost more to replace. As stated it is a good source of arsenic and antimony but it has NO tin. If the shot is not really all that round but...

    I use 296, same as your H110, it isn’t as hard on hulls as Lil Gun. That stuff burns them up. One thing, especially with 410s, keep your hulls together by type. If you get the crimp just right for your AA the loader will purr, if you change hulls it...

    Not knowing your exact location, but I know there is a good bit of skeet shot near Morgantown. Most serious skeet shooters turn their nose up at the Rio/Fiochii type hulls. I find they load just fine and can be scrounged at registered shoots. The...

    The Yildiz single you have is a wonderful little gun! The Tristar is the auto I have a bit of experience with, belongs to a friend. It is a nice handling shotgun, small scale but well balanced. 28 gage forum has lots of people who like them. That...

    I own, shoot and dearly love 410 pumpguns. That said, and considering what you want to do , I would suggest a 20ga loaded at the 3/4 oz range. 410s are a ball on the skeet range, my son carries a 97+ 410 NSSA average, but that is with a tubed Blazer...

    Have 2 Contenders, both early 1976 and before. I had an Encore for a few months. The Contender does everything I want a single shot pistol to do without the unnecessary weight and bulk of the Encore. I just don’t hanker for the power that an Encore...

    I suspect they are not intended to appeal to us, but some marketing idea of “target market”. Remember the Astech or some such from Pontiac a while back?? I think they came with a paper bag in the glive box for the passenger. Anyway, the design was a...

    That is the Traditional Hunter variation, although mine has only a single trigger. I also have one in 45 Colt. About 6lbs and very nice. It came with a tang sight from Browning. It is the same action as the low wall you posted, but case colored. I...

    Yep, reading the wind is a real talent. I could never shoot as good a score at 100meters as I did at 50, I stink at reading wind. A Sporter that shoots 2 inches consistently will hold the 10 ring on the 100yard ISSF target, not bad. I only have one...

    I took the question to be “what is the max range you can keep all 5 shots (any rimfire) in a group less than .5-caliber, consistently?” And with a pretty much stock rifle.

    I read the op as you just stated, but did assume you were talking 22lr only. If I were interested in playing a game of “longest distance to keep all 5 inside, not touching the line” I would chose the 17hrm. Automatic advantage of needing a .323 ctc...

    Well I have NO1, a low wall a high wall and Contenders. As far as the cartridges you are looking at it is down to the Browning low wall, trad Hunter in 45 Colt. I have a super14 stretched to 18 inch that I played with on the Contender carbine, but...

    Most of my scoped (or target sighted) rifles will do it (.278 group cyc) at 25 yards. Both T-bolts, a M69 Winchester, and the 69A all capable of .25 at 25 yards for 5 shot groups. 52Sporter repro probably at 35 yards but limited by the 6x scope I...

    In my eyes they died when bought by S&W. The innovation was a direct result of the inspired founders, now long gone. Profit driven corporations rarely “experiment” when money can be made more generically. I have been a long time Contender fan, like...

    Very sorry to hear that you had a bad experience with cast swc on deer. I have probably taken a dozen or so deer with cast swc's in various .44 mags, .45 colts and .45 acp's and never had one run over 30 yards. However I have shot some with a...

    There is homely like the hi point, AKs,and ARs. But to intentionally, to no functional purpose, “doll up” a lever gun to impersonate the homely AR earns the “taticool” levers the ugliest title.

    Quick question, what shot size was analyzed? My understanding is that the smaller sizes, 7 1/2 and under are higher in antimony.

    What shape is the bullet, flat point should work at rifle velocity. I prefer something softer to hunt with as well. You could use them for practice and targets.

    The labels on choke tubes mean little. I have a Briley “full” 410 tube that throws a very patchy cylinder type pattern from either of my sub gage tubes, full length and made by Briley as well. Measures ok, patterns more open than the IC. If you...

    Our club has about 20,000# from the last reclaim cycle. No one is buying it at 1$ a lb, can’t understand. They are going to sell it for scrap, I intend to buy 3000# barrel for shotgun use and bullet alloy. Will be lifetime supply for me. I still buy...

    1$ per pound is what reclaim costs around here. I use it about 50:50 with plain lead then add tin, there is virtually none in shot. Look at the alloy calculator in the stickies, gives nominal comp of several varieties of shot. Already melted is a...
