    quilbilly replied to a thread Dead rabbit in Our Town
    I once had a bunny end up like that in our garden. It had gotten into our Ozette potato patch. I figured if it ate the toxic leaves, that might be the culprit but on the other hand, if it was a disease humans could get, I picked it up with a rake...

    Last week I received an Mihec MP 311-410 brass 130 gr mold as a prize and yesterday I shot the first few boolits using the shallow HP setting from it in my 308 "scout rifle" on my 42 yard home range with four powders giving velocities from 1650 to...

    I have two 308's with the same twist but different makers and barrel lengths. One loves 19 gr of 2400 with that boolit shooting sub MOA when my eyes and shaky hands are having a good day and the other prefers 21 gr of 5744 with 180-190's but...

    I have one and it shoots very well in my 308 all the way out to 400 yards. I just pan lube the whole boolits with Lee "mule snot" without worrying about collection of dirt since they are either in the box to be shot one at a time at the range or...

    I have been shooting the 338 WM several years using the Lee 220 gr. My rifle is a TCR. I don't recall the twist but when I first started out testing CB's in it, the boolits would not stabilize below 1650 fps. The rifle does really well out to...

    quilbilly replied to a thread mp molds in Cast Boolits
    I just received one of his brass molds that was donated to NCBS and cast the first boolits with it yesterday. It is the 30 cal 130 gr semi point gas check with small meplat flat nose that is convertable to two types of hollow points. The mold is a...

    Nowadays science has the ability to measure in minute amounts beyond what is relevant in the real world but wonderful for getting grants and creating hysteria. Both lead and mercury fall into this category. In the Seattle area, there has been...

    It would be interesting to find out how far away you could be and still get 4 BB's on a full sized coyote target. I have an old Savage 24V and the 20 ga. barrel does quite well on coyotes with #4 buck out to almost 45 yards.

    It is the Nevada Cast Boolit Shoot in Winnemucca at the Humboldt County range next weekend. Look under the "Get Togethers" thread in the "Our Town" section on this site. If memory serves, this will be the 15th annual and my 8th. It is more...

    I have spent a lot of time in that area too. The Monitors have become almost exclusively elk country as the elk have pushed out the deer. I once had breakfast with some of the guides that work the area out of Tonopah and they said it is much...

    You didn't say which Unit(S) but after NCBS I will be headed up into there Jarbidge Mtns for a couple days. If I gather any good "intel" I will let you know. Weather permitting, of course. I think at the moment, the roads are too soft around...

    If Weather Underground is right, the weather for this year's NCBS will be just about perfect. Partly cloudy with highs in the low 80's. I am so ready for the smell of sage and gunpowder.

    It's hard to beat the 357 Max for versatility. You can load it up for a light bear rifle with the 204 gr RFGC. Load it moderate with the Keith 173 gr SWC for deer out to 150 yards (MV about 1400 fps). Back way off with a 125 gr RF at 1300 fps...
