    I ask people to throw a tennis ball at a wall, and draw and shoot it before it gets back to you. That's how fast a bear moves, and the size of the brain you have to target.

    My old Chesapeake would do it. After I would find a fresh one in the spring I would show it to her, and for the next month or so she would go out in the bush and bring them back pretty regularly.

    They start when you start the vehicle. They loop record, so are on all the time. If you have an incident you want to save,there is a button you push. Mine saves about three minutes worth.

    waksupi replied to a thread Leading problem in Cast Boolits
    Sounds like the bullets are undersized. Drop bullets in the cylinder. They should be able to be pushed through with a pencil eraser. If they drop right through, or push out too easy, they are too small.

    Losing the rendezvous gear is a real blow. Much irreplaceable, and invaluable. I don't know what I have left to spare, as I've been downsizing the past couple years. But, let me know what you may need, and If I have it I'll send it along.

    There should be no circumstance where you need to take off more than 1/4 turn, and that is a negligible amount to remove.

    No doubt it was something good. She has only been shooting muzzleloaders for a year or so, and is a great shot with that smoothbore. She took a deer with it this past season.

    I was shooting a new rifle I hadn't had time to work up sight and load. I found I was shooting about a foot right and four inches low each shot. Now that it is finally starting to warm up, I'll be able to put in some bench time.

    This was the nicest day we've had to shoot in a couple months. Denny has been working shifts that has kept him away from a lot of the shoots, and hopefully he gets a schedule shift this year.

    I really don't know why people say that. I've unbreeched dozens of rifles and smoothbores. I use a sharp chisel to make an index mark on the bottom, and it is easy to re-index them.

    A tip on that. Some don't know the proper method. Put the screw or bolt in place, and see where you need to go. Then chuck it in a drill press, and use a file to take down the back surface of the head until it indexes properly.

    That is the truth. I argued with Lilja to cut a barrel to my specs, explaining I shoot cast bullets. He wasn't listening about required barrel twist for what I needed, so I went to Bauska. No problem, Too bad they are gone.
