    Yep, 5 is too young. Ten is about right. I wouldn't waste time on a .243. Get a .308. Started youngest son on one because Savage was the only maker who made left handed youth bolt actions and the choices at the time were .308, 7mm-08 and .243,...

    Is that over on the old Schilling Air Force Base?

    A 30 year old Rockchucker does the vast majority of it for me.

    I really wasn't supposed to be in there looking around and while not likely, could have an LEO or game warden discover me there. It's also a pretty healthy drive out of the way for me. I have quite a bit of lead, the vast majority of which is...

    I didn't see it mentioned, what alloy are you using to achieve these groups and velocities?

    Where do you shoot in Salina? I noticed what looked like a range over on State street once while driving over there and never looked into it.

    I agree on more weight, but I'd want something with a flat nose which the 311299 doesn't have. Something like the 311041 or RCBS 180 grain flat point.

    I personally wouldn't bother slugging the bore, if you really feel a need, get some cerrosafe and follow the instructions, it'll give you an idea of what to look for. I've never been a fan of the idea of pounding something through a rifle bore and...

    richhodg66 replied to a thread Mossberg 351KA in Rimfire Area
    I mounted up a scope and did some work with this rifle earlier this week. Not the most accurate .22 I have, but certainly good enough for anything I'm likely to do with it. It functioned well with several types of ammo, but was misfiring quite...

    C4HD sells a ram that uses universal shell holders like modern presses which they say fits most of the old Pacific and RCBS presses. Seems like it costs about $40.

    Yeah, well, did 24 years in the Army and still work for them indirectly now. Passed every security clearance including the most recent one to work with kids which seemed more stringent than the one to work with nukes, go figure. Whatever Uncle Sam...

    You did very well on that deal. I like my Krag sporter very much. The 311284 is an excellent choice and either 4198 or 4895 seem to work great with it.

    That's the one. I have no idea who Don Brown was, but it seems the state set this up as a hunter safety training site. It was a nice little place when I needed a place to shoot and had the time. Picture of what it looked like before they closed...

    There's a thread going now about "that guy" at the range. I'm pretty convinced that's what killed this one. People used to go out there and be irresponsible and unsafe. It is pretty remote, but there are farmers and such who live within a mile or...

    No urban sprawl, this place is out in the middle of nowhere, several miles outside a town called Canton that I doubt has 1000 people in it. Roxbury, the other town nearby has maybe three or four occupied houses and a lot of abandoned stuff, I...

    OK, it was Huntington that had them. Gonna have to wait til Monday to order it, but I think it'll work out well. It was driving me crazy that I couldn't remember where I'd seen it.

    This is my method as well. Dad made some nice range bags with suede and filled them with spent primers, worked great. I'm keeping mine to eventually scrap.

    A while back, I was looking for a primer catcher for an old Lachmiller and remember finding someone who carried one that looked like the old cast aluminum ones for a rockchucker except it was new manufacture and didn't have RCBS cast into it. Was...

    Personally, I can't see any realistic situation where one of the High Points would be better at deer killing than your .45-70.

    When you say, "this is the .318 set" does that mean that it simply has an expander ball for the smaller bore or is there more to it than that?

    I have a real old Lyman manual that has an article on doing this and had a recipe for making the bullets using wax and water pump grease (is that even still a thing?). They recommended melting it into an old cake pan so it was a half inch thick,...
