    Never heard of one. What is the advantage over a normal wheel barrow? Doesn't look real strong, seems like you couldn't move anything real heavy in it.

    I have a 6mm 788. Almost spooky how accurate it is. Mine really liked 100 grain boat tails and Winchester 760/H-414.

    I have one of the old Redfields with the EER, not sure what to do with it. Was thinking it might eventually be good on a break open single shot.

    Either that or .219 Donaldson Wasp, but it seems long for that, so I think you're correct. .219 Zipper improved.

    Funny, I killed my first "small bore" cast deer with that exact load, except I added 2 ounces of 95/5 solder to a ten pound pot of wheel weights. Also, rifle was a Savage 340, but it worked great. The mold is an old single cavity Ideal.

    Those little Yildiz .410s would be just the platform for something like this if the trigger pulls could be made good. I love the whole Rook Rifle concept. My Savage 219 in .22 Hornet comes pretty close, I love to squirrel hunt with it. A .32...

    richhodg66 replied to a thread Lead type in Cast Boolits
    The 50/50 will work fine for everything. Might want it harder in .30-30 if you want to shoot faster than 1400 FPS or so.

    I was close to buying the Ithaca. My favorite pump shotguns. I have a 16 gauge Deer Slayer, kind of wish I could get an interchangeable bird barrel for it. Nice guns, glad they found a good home.

    I have several 6.5 molds. I wonder how paper patching one of these up might work? Never tried patching before.

    I have coached air rifle teams at two high schools now and some high schools here even have trap teams, but I didn't figure this would happen. Good news. http://ksn.com/2017/04/20/kansas-high-school-offers-gun-safety-class/

    There are individuals with that kind of sand, but we don't have that kind of collective courage as a country anymore. I highly doubt that a mission that risky would even be authorized anymore regardless of how high the stakes were.

    Never really thought much of the .270, seemed a weird bore size, but I picked one up a few years ago as part of a package trade and because it was the only kind of centerfire rifle ammo that never sold out at our local Wal Mart during the scare. I...

    Great job! If they allowed rifles here, I'd probably have taken up turkey hunting by now.

    It was today. Had lots of news feeds about it on Facebook today. I've always just been in awe of the courage those guys had, men like that don't exist anymore. Only one left now. I think I'll dig out my copy of Thirty Seconds Over Tokyo tomorrow.

    curious why the sizing to .224". I size my Bator to .225" for use in my 223Rem and 22-250 rifles. My BATOR mold is one that drops them at .226" with my pot-luck alloy.

    Buy yourself and the son-in-law a pair of Lee Hand Presses or C-Presses and a set of modern 40S&W Dies.
