    I see a lot of greed and rationalization in this thread. Ask yourselves what Jesus would do. Ask that even if you are not a Christian. BTW, I believe all of us will answer to Him in the end. Maybe I am soft headed like another who replied.

    My oldest son gave me a Kal-Tec carbin in 40 S&W. You need to know that I'm a dinosaur. I do not own a platform gun in any thing. Everything I own is old. Like me. The first time I fired the K-T, I told the friend I was with, "****! ! I have to get...

    dverna replied to a thread 28 Guage? in Casting for Shotguns
    Interesting thread. I have decided to get rid of my 28 ga stuff. I love hunting with the XS Feather as it is so light and a great bird gun. Used 7/8 and 1oz loads. I was going to put everything up at the local club, but will offer it here...

    I have two of them. Very sturdy and after adding shelves of 2x’s and loading them with bullets and ammunition, they are great. Much better than the HF product will ever be.

    Another user of the RCBS Chargemaster. But I do not get hung up too much on absolute precision of charge weight. When I work up a load, I pick one that shoots well with a +/- .2 gr spread. That allows me to use a PM for the .223 loads. I load...

    I am very skeptical of your accuracy claims....but.... If the gun is that accurate, and you are a good enough shot, I would stretch the range to wherever you have 500 ft-lbs of energy. With the loopy trajectory you will have, I would limit the...
