    catmandu replied to a thread Hearing Aid Questions in Our Town
    Can anybody tell me what the molded filler material is that they use on the molded in ear type of hearing aid. I have dads set and I thought I would refit them for me to see if I can tolerate them. I’m sure something can soften it up. I plan to buy...

    I have had two .357max rifles and I can tell you for a fact that they WILL NOT shoot the shorter cartridges better than they do the Max. cartridge. Both of my guns are/were tack drivers in the max configuration and never shot Mag length loads as...

    NSB replied to a thread 45-70 need some advice in Leverguns
    I've got a ton of powder on the bench and 3031 is one of them. I too have had less than stellar results with this powder with any bullet/boolit and gave up on it. It's the only powder in fifty years of reloading that stuck a bullet in the bore with...

    I've had really good luck with Unique and cast bullets. I think you'll like the results.

    It's an auction. Don't offer more than you're willing to pay. I simply compare them to the best deal I can get elsewhere and offer no more.

    Yes, they will fit Weaver bases. I use them all the time. This is now a very good price for these rings. If you want them, jump on them.

    You won't go wrong with either 2400 or Unique. Both shoot amazingly well in all my guns and they also work in just about any cast bullet load you'll ever use in either handgun or rifle. They are really good in just about anything. My preferred load...

    NSB replied to a thread 45-70 need some advice in Leverguns
    Let me offer some advice. I've own/owned several 45-70 rifles and it's probably one of my favorite cartridges. Before pursuing your load with 4064 and thinking you'll change to a different powder later, just get something different right now before...

    Put a Wolf spring kit in the gun and fix the trigger. Even Bubba can do it right it's that easy. Cheap too.

    Put a tritium night sight on the gun and get the smaller dot size (sits lower). Between that and using a heavier bullet (not a lighter one) you'll get it pretty close to POA. I played with mine a while before I got it right. Ten shots double action...

    Get the Lyman Cast Bullet Manual. I had few Pedersoli Sharps rifles, and all were very good shooters. Pedersoli makes this gun. For the loads you're looking for, you can use a number of powders. Those guns were the least fussy I've ever owned and...

    I like the .22mag. Yes, I can shoot a 38spl cheaper by reloading, but......I can carry a lot of rimfire ammo in my pocket without weighing myself down. It's dynamite on small game, foxes, coyotes, woodchucks, etc. It reaches out quite a bit further...

    That's not how it works. They make about 3-4% every time you use the card.....from the seller. Getting anything from the user is just a bonus.

    The interpretation of all statistics is pretty much erroneous most of the time. Like Twain said, "there's lies, ****ed lies, and statistics". Defining "defense" opens up a lot of interpretation. Were the bears at a full on charge? Were the bears...
