    For several years there was only a locked empty case, and shotgun shells on a pallet in the open. Now even the 22LR space is ful, but ya gotta be carded period.

    Just because the computers made it possible, is absolutely no reason for the anemic print. I can't read it and not being a comic book, the print is more important than the big HD colorful pictures. While I understand that smaller print saves extra...

    My old 73 chevy pickup still displays a "Don't blame me, I voted for Dole" bumper sticker. Young folks ask me, "Who is that"?

    During simpler times we conversed with each other any time conditions allowed. Now it's hard to get the attention of others without electronic connections. We've lost our ability to spell out thoughts without a special code. In the evenings we...

    mold maker replied to a thread Tinnitus ! in Our Town
    The only time it's more than a nuisance is at night when the normal background noise dies. Then the crickets all join in to make it hard to drift off to sleep. A boring TV program drowns it out, and the boredom puts me to sleep. I was always...

    I now know what it is like to have that problem. It started about a year ago for me. Sounds to me , like a thousand crickets all singing at the same time with a slight wavering pitch. Haven't found anything to help with it yet. For now just putting...

    During Fathers Day lunch, I made plans to take two of my Grand Daughters to shoot the rifles I bought them shortly after their birth. After gathering all the equipment and the girls, we drove to the only local range. Excitement ruled the day...

    It's the same info either copied or rewritten, hidden among the advertisements. If the advertisers are paying, and we are charged an exorbitant price for paper and ink, why bother? The printed media was at one time, the only way to find info. Its...

    that may very well work, but I set COAL by trial and error, making dummy rounds, starting about as long as possible, then attempt to chamber the dummy, if it's no-go, which is usually the case, I keep trying shorter lengths, until I find the length...

    I haven't seen anything anywhere that they changed 44 Mag. If Remlin were to change the slow twist on their 44 Mag guns, I suspect several will be sold to castboolit shooters and we'd have a dozen threads about them.

    You should email or call Al at NOE to ask the status. There is no average time for an item to be back in stock. If you contact him, so he knows you want to buy one, he "may" squeeze in a batch to replenish stock if he knows one is to be sold right...

    What do you have in mind, Hunting or accuracy? A heavy 265gr is sure good for hog hunting, BUT... since those marlins have that slow twist rate (1:38), a lighter boolit will tend to fly more stable. Many have reported that boolits over 240gr when...

    I would answer "maybe". There are too many variables to give a solid answer. pistol or rifle? BP or smokless? Lube recipe? What oil is used in the lube? percentage of oil content in lube? and lube grooves size

    I once killed a rabbit with one 7 1/2 shot through the top of the ear. It must have scared him to death or caused a heart attack. At the time my kids wouldn't eat wild game, but he made the best chicken pie they ever ate.
