    rking22 replied to a thread D2 or D3 ? in Special Projects
    D2 is a known quality knife steel with heartbeat specs for the thin section, not sure about D3. D2 is almost as corrosion resistant as stainless, but will rust if neglected. Way too much concern on that topic, to my mind. It can be a major pain to...

    From experiments I did a decade or so ago, a hollow base WC does not stabilize without rifling. In a smooth bore they tumble at less than 25 yards. Look at the shape and balance point of Lyman “pellet” shaped slug vs a hbwc, different animal. Try...

    rking22 replied to a thread 1/2" at what range in Rimfire Area
    Thinking more along that line, yeah I know, bad idea. Could be like chunk gun shooting, bring your own target with your chosen “mark” for sighting. At entry use go/no go gage to certify the target for diameter and foot only to the front. Any shot...

    rking22 replied to a thread 1/2" at what range in Rimfire Area
    That target is what we called the NRA target, I am referring to the ISU target. It had a dot for the 10 ring and 2 sighted bulls. I think the dot was 1 mm but need to look that up. As an 18 year old I could reasonably expect to clean that NRA target...

    It gets even more interesting, So a perfect score on a .056 10 ring.... every time, don’t know about that, nobody wins every match. The 50 ft small bore target has a dot for 10 ring, not sure of dia. I shot consistent clean targets, at 50 ft indoors...

    2014 NSSA rule update allows up to 232 in 410, as I said it don’t matter. I like your idea of adjusting for crimp, I will do that on my 3 inch!

    Go to your skeet club and ask around. We buy in volume as a club, once a month. Probably pays my club dues every year just in component cost savings, example is no hazmat fee. Generally we buy at about 15% discount as well. I buy a flat of Fiocchi...

    232 gr is max but Don’t waste your effort or mental energy worrying about getting exactly 1/2 oz of shot in the 410. It is meaningless, all the bushings throw slightly short to be sure loads are within the allowed max. Another pellet or two is not...

    Last case 5000 I ordered was barely over half the price of a case of Winchester. Haven’t loaded a Win or CCI 209 in 20 years or more. And I am talking close to 200,000 of them! Not a thing wrong with them and they show the same pressure as Win 209...

    Now that’s the makings of a road trip. Thanks for the info. I do use my 36-6 for woods wandering and goofing off. I like 3 inch small frames, there is a Rossi 32SWL 3 inch in the safe. 32 is just a bit lite on shot for no-legs.

    Just remember they will need the European primers when you reload, CCIs almost fit , but fall out very easily. I would use the load indicating 1225fps, it is no where near max from other sources and I like at least 1250 in 410 target loads. seems to...

    I have played around with 28 to 20 ga and they work fairly well, brand was little skeeters. 410 in 28ga wasn’t too bad but I would not hunt with that, 410 in 12ga was useless. 20 in a 12 breaks skeet targets. I suspect your 12 to 10ga would be...

    Nope, zero interest, over priced piece of plastic. cycling speed is a total non issue. Balance and natural point ability are important shotgun features. Takes time to reaquire the target, that is if you care more about hitting things than making...

    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...
