    Oh yeah, I forgot to mention, I also scored the coveted 45th edition of the Lyman reloading manual. I've heard others mention it's one of their favorites and they wouldn't be without it. I've seen them priced stupidly high on the famous auction...

    I'd just use a solution of pure citric acid and water...I think others will add a touch of dish soap disclaimer: I don't use a ultra-sonic cleaner, I just use a old crockpot and solution of pure citric acid and hot water (3 Tblsp to a gallon). I...

    Maybe? The Hutchinson show in late Sept has been a staple for 36 years, known widely as a locally run 300 table show (by the Elk's club) with lots of private dealers, much like the Wells, MN show in March. There is usually a "crocodile productions...

    So, I get an advertising email special from Midsouth, Special pricing on everything in honor of it being the anniversary of my first order with them (most items were 10% off). Pricing is effective for 3 days, limited to one order only. I haven't...

    Myself, I keep it all separate and in it's original form, but I don't have 800lbs of mixed type. If I had 800lbs of mixed type, that's been sitting unused since '75 and I wasn't planning on selling it, then I'd surely think your plan of smelting it...

    I tried some Hornady 174Gn RN bullets on Sunday. They got 2" groups, but the aiming point on the target was a 1" red dot and not as visible as I'd like with the 6x Leupold. That is the only jacketed bullet I have tried that is close to a reasonable...

    The local gunshow was this weekend, I always have a table there. VERY VERY low attendance, record low attendance, and very few of those few attendees were buying. The only buying/selling I was seeing was between those with a table. on the plus...

    shot the barrel loose? WOW ! Ruger couldn't fix it? WOW ! again. As DougGuy says, .431 seems like the size to use, if it'll fit. Hunting load, I'd use H110, work up a load for your gun, starting at Hodgdon's recomendation for a start load.

    I have been using it in a 222 Rem with 53 Smks, and it is working very well for F-class @ 300 yards. There is no sense weighing, as the powder measure drops right on the money. Using it in the 222, it is impossible to overcharge and gives great...

    To most of us, it's not about the money spent, but rather the trip to get there. Anybody can spend coins to get something, but a few of us take pride in the fact, we did it ourselves. If I had the tooling and the means, I'd be the first at lots of...

    I just ask them to give the barrel a wipe. Every gunshop I have ever asked have a really ratty looking cleaning rod with a brush that's on it's last legs behind the counter. Good enough to move a dust spec or bit of crud anyway. If it is still there...

    If not reloading, you could get an education watching SPONGE BOB SQUARE PANTS. It seems many of our children are raised that way. If I had gotten paid wages for the time I've spent loading I'd be a multi-millionaire, but alas, I'd just be getting...

    Good thinking Eldon, I have a couple of red pads with excellent timber and am thinking of letting all of My No1s go apart from the 303Brit. I'll keep that in mind, it is yet to prove itself in the shooting department yet though. Off to the range...
