    Knurl it by running it between two files. Smokeless muzzle loaders are doing this all the time.

    I'm looking for a good pistol safe. I've searched the site and found information on full size rifle safes. For small safes 1-2 pistols, what do you recommend? Thanks, Paul in WNY

    The OP didn't ask about the difference in off hand. That wasn't mentioned.

    NSB replied to a thread Vehicle chewed on by varmits in Our Town
    Mice are the biggest culprits. I've found mouse nest under the hood of vehicles that have sat in one spot for a while. Many other critters will chew on wires and tires. My father once went bow hunting for a week and never moved his vehicle while he...

    Salvadore, I was shooting with a scope on the gun. I'd be very happy also if I could do it with open sights.

    I'm leaning towards the sizing die making a difference. Just this week I took some measurements on my Lyman carbide sizing die in my .357 and found that the case was being sized down to .372-.373". I did this because my empties were coming out...

    NSB replied to a thread New 92 miroku accuracy in Leverguns
    I don't know if you cast those bullets or not, but something you can check is the diameter of the bullet base. Last year I had a problem with some Hornady swaged bullets that were .355-.356 at the base and they shot very poorly. When shooting...

    NSB replied to a thread New 92 miroku accuracy in Leverguns
    I've had Miroku barreled guns in 357 and the accuracy was outstanding....with jacketed bullets. Not so much with cast or swaged bullets. A few cast loads were "OK" accurate, but not what I'd call true tack drivers. When all else fails, go to...

    Some guns are famous for this, the Ithaca 37 is the poster child for this problem. Those budget rounds you're shooting are a steel base with a brass colored finish on them. Your problem will go away if you use ammo with an actual brass base on it.

    NSB replied to a thread forming 7TCU in Case Forming / Re-forming
    I shot the 7tcu for many years in silhouette matches. I just purchased surplus military ammo at gun shows and shot it out of a 223 barrel and fire formed it that way. I didn't do anything other than that and reloaded it. I just threw out several...

    This same post has been coming up on different boards for several years now. Wal Mart has had this policy for years and someone finally saw the sign and thought it was something new. They've been doing it here for at least the last ten years. It has...

    +1 on the Unique. Just don't double charge with such a light load. I use a dipper and sit it aside when I put the powder in. Nice soft shooting load and fairly accurate.

    NSB replied to a thread .45 vs. .50 in Muzzleloading.
    I'm not impressed with your bow kill comparing it to a gun kill. I got my 81st deer with the bow last year and I have a pretty fair idea how an arrow kills and how a gun kills.

    NSB replied to a thread .45 vs. .50 in Muzzleloading.
    I've hunted with muzzle loaders for around fifty years now. I can tell you for a certainty that the 45cal with a round ball is very much on the light side for whitetails. A round ball in 45cal if about 127 grains. A round ball in 50cal is 175...

    I'd rather sit in the woods than about anywhere else I can think of. I spent today sitting out listening for turkeys. They got off to a little bit of a late start this year and they're still making up for some lost time. I got one on the second day...
