    Trying to seat a 71gr bullet in a 32ACP case with a seater designed for a 32 S&W Magnum may be possible if you crank that seater all the way down and then some more after that... Buy a Lee Die Set for 32ACP. It won't break the bank and you'll...

    AbitNutz. sure would be interested in some images of the cartridge that you worked on. Sounds like you took on the challenge and came out the winner.

    It's good stuff for black powder shooting. We have an early muzzle loader season in September and there have been times Bore Butter is pretty much a liquid when it gets warm. Perhaps mixing it with some wax might firm it up some.

    I'll stay alert to it. We live out in the sticks, no high speed road where he could have been hit by a car. No poisons or chemicals around and nothing like that ever dies of old age and such in the wild. Just curious. I have one outside the...

    Interesting. Why do they shoot cormorants? Are they harmful in some way? I guess I don't know much about them.

    I went out to shoot some .38 Specials yesterday morning and there was a dead rabbit lying right on the 25 yard line which wasn't there the evening before. Near as I could tell, not a mark on it and otherwise seemed healthy, not starved, fur looked...

    I just picked up a set of 308x1.5" RCBS dies on E-bay for $35 with shipping. I'm starting to gravitate towards small 30 caliber cartridges for most of my range shooting to go along with my 6.5 match rifles. Now I need to set some money away for...

    I just picked up a nice Winchester Model 67 this afternoon for $100 out the door. I shot it a little offhand at 25 yards this evening and it groups well, but high and right. I'll need to round up a taller front sight as the rear sight is as low as...

    I wonder if Fiochi still makes that load? Seems real lead shot in heavy, hard hitting loads are all either small shot for turkeys or big buck shot anymore. Mostly steel shot in the 3" and 3 1/2".
