    Sounds like your seating stem might have some run out in it, if it’s messing up with adjustment in either direction. The fact that you can rotate it 360 degrees and it works again, supports this as well. IME seating the bullet straight is the...

    Like was said ive never seen even a 1 in 7 twist destroy a bullet. Maybe in a 22250 or 220 swift but 223 is mild compared to them. Ive got 1-9 1-8 and 1-9 ar15s if I could have only one it would be a 1-8 twist.

    ill be the naysayer here. One crop damage season my buddy and I used tipped x bullets exclusively in our 2506 and 257 wbys. We spent more time tracking deer that year then probably all the other 10 years weve been doing this combined. Just about...

    If your new to it one bit of advice is don't overcook it. Some say 180 some say 160. In fact at 145 your meat is safe. I go to 150 to take into account variations in meat thermometers and most times use two to verify it. I got distracted this year...

    yup its illegal to take them even after an election in most states if you don't have permission. I don't know if they would actually prosecute you for doing it but it is the law.

    Yup to me a good ar trigger is about a 5lb trigger that breaks clean. If you have a dedicated long range gun or varmint gun a bit less is better but for a self defense gun or one that does double duty I don't want much less then 5lbs. Bottom line is...

    love my summer sausage but its a lot of work and isn't cheap to make and I need to do burger to offset the cost of fuel running back and forth to the farm. I figure each trip costs us 20 bucks in gas and we split all the deer so if we each get 5lbs...

    yes they will both work, look at NOE's neck sizer dies and flairing tools, they work well and are probably a bit cheaper.

    one hint for those who don't is to not cut up your steaks when you butcher. Vaccum pack and freeze your meat in blocks and cut it or butterfly it when you thaw it to cook. Much less chance of freezer burn. Also don't pack your burger in baggies. Use...
