    I shoot plain-based bullets at 1400 fps with extremely good accuracy out to 100 yards. Bullets from my Accurate 43-240K mold will outshoot any of my gas checked bullets. I believe this is because the bases are extremely sharp and uniform, slightly...

    Mountains from mole hills. Some of my guns recoil more than my Marlin with 400 grain bullets at 2000 fps. I still enjoy shooting them. What's the big deal?

    Tatume replied to a thread 458 Lott 730 grain in Cast Boolits
    In 2007 I did some testing for a commercial caster using a 458 Win Mag Ruger No. 1. The bullets were 720 grain WFNGC loaded to 1700 fps in Winchester cases. Powders used were IMR 4895, 4198 & 3031. Recoil was severe. If you want to know more, PM me.

    Why? Your link goes to a discussion of a double charge accident. We're not discussing double charges of pistol powders. We're talking about documented loads with rifle powders. Most of the Hodgdon loads are compressed, and so a double charge...

    I agree. The Ruger No. 1 is also chambered in 458 Win Mag, 458 Lott, 416 Rigby, and other thumper cartridges. For hunting dangerous game these are better rifles. However, a lot of Marlin 1895 rifles serve as guide rifles in bear country. Here a...

    My first Savage Model 99 was chambered for 308 Winchester. Loaded at 2.8" overall, cartridges just barely fit; any longer and the magazine would not rotate. Then I borrowed a friends 300 Savage Model 99. What a difference! Cartridges fit easily,...

    Why not go to the Hodgdon web site, pick a powder you like (I've use IMR 4895 & H4895, IMR 4198 & H4198, and IMR 3031 with good success), and load the minimum charge? Shoot them, decide if you want more or less, and go from there. Rather than...

    I've had a lot of fun with very powerful 45-70 loadings, all the while dreaming of going to Alaska and Africa. Brian Pierce used a Marlin 45-70 on Cape Buffalo, and as I recall drilled a bull and killed the cow on the other side of him. Both...

    Your goal is achievable. http://www.hodgdonreloading.com/ Hodgdon data for cast bullets (Trapdoor loads) peak at 1700 fps, but you can reach 2000 fps with H4198. The Limbsaver recoil pad takes a lot of the bite out. ...

    Either rifle will be an excellent choice. The lever gun uses Marlin scope bases, and the Single Shot Rifle uses bases made for the H&R Handi-Rifle. I'm planning to buy a Single Shot Rifle this spring, but haven't decided on the chambering. Let us...

    Nothing special, just the stuff in my pockets every day (wallet, pocket knife, pen, etc.). No special clothes either, just my ordinary work clothes. Once upon a time I liked to wear a tweed jacket and a tie, but I haven't done so in awhile.

    There are two favorite designs, the Keith SWC and the LFN round flat nosed design. Both can be very accurate, and both are excellent hunting bullets. Some claim a tad better accuracy for the LFN, but I can't detect it. Best five-shot groups...
