    Any 41 SWC still going 850 fps at the longest distance you intend to shoot will do the job nicely.

    Agreed. I have spent a lot of time defeating the muzzle brakes I have acquired on barrels by using cast boolits, lower velocities, and faster burning powders. You may not be able to with your rifle. I currently have a 16" 308 bolt rifle that I...

    quilbilly replied to a thread 222 Remington in Cast Boolits
    I have three triple deuces and adore the caliber. One has only seen jacketed since the barrel loves hot loads but the other two love cast at the 1600 - 1800 fps. Either 4198 or Re-7 seem to work just fine. My alloy isn't particularly hard (65%...

    A 45 cal round nose moving at over 900 fps has a lot of penetrating power. If the guy shot 6-7 times, at lease a couple boolits will get passed a rib to to drop the young bull. I do not approve of what that guy did but having raised bison for a...

    I have used the Lyman plain base 130 for winter varminting and target in my Mossberg 30/30 and it shot extremely well. Coyotes hated the little pill and it would keep the gong ringing at 200 yards. Velocities in my rifle had to be kept below...

    Both my 45 Seneca and 45 Cherokee shoot their best with round balls produced from a T/C round ball mold. I have tried several other molds that produce the same size RB's from my measurement and none produced the same accuracy. I have never...

    I swear by the cap guards with my Grey Hawk 50. I have been hunting in the rain and even the worst of our monsoons on the Olympic Peninsula for 30 years. Because shooting with a well greased patched PRB that seals the bore, I have not seen the need...

    Our fall crop of lettuce, cabbages, and spinach is coming along nicely. We will have peaches to harvest in a couple weeks and the honeycrisp and gala apples should be ready in six weeks. The Ozette potatoes (a mysterious finger potato brought to...

    quilbilly replied to a thread Blue Tongue in Hunting with CB's
    Blue tongue disease appeared at my favorite mule deer hunting area in sage grasslands of Central Washington about four years ago as a result of insects bred on unusual mudflats around the lakes that I fish. It was heartbreaking to see all the bones...

    One of my 308's likes 2400 and RE-7 while the other likes 3031 and Red Dot. Both have the same twist but one is a short barrel Mossberg while the other is a Remington that has a 22" barrel The Remington likes boolits around 160 gr while the...

    I have the mold for 184 gr RFPB from NOE with the wide meplat for my 357 Maximum T/C carbine. Sized to 358, there is no leading or even smears at 1370 fps but at 1420, the lead smears appear. Both Unique and 2400 powders do the same things at the...

    After a little extra thought, it shouldn't be too surprising that the VA fired Tri-West. Tri-West is the company that handles Tri-Care for Life for the active military, retirees, and their families plus elsewhere in the DOD. 25 years ago when I...
