    Like I said, it's my opinion. I've trained a lot of shooters over the years and I've seen very few new/younger shooters who enjoy recoil. I've seen a lot of them flinch and shy away from even 20ga shotguns and medium recoiling rifles.

    I really like the 45-70 cartridge and I have the same gun you have. In my opinion, there is no soft shooting light load for beginner/youth/female shooters using this cartridge. There are loads that are significantly lighter than the trapdoor type...

    I've shot wounded animals before and kept them. But, it was on opening day of gun season and they'd just been shot within an hour or so by someone else. I've also shot animals with old wounds and they looked pretty sick and most had a very foul...

    Lot's of experts on here. It's hard to sort out a good answer. Gets down to what your favorite car is and has nothing to do with the OP's question or comments.

    NSB replied to a thread tire question in Our Town
    AWD is not really All Wheel Drive. There are many variations in the way they work. Some have centrifugal clutches that transfer power from front to back, most that do that are only really one wheel drive and it can be one front tire or one rear...

    NSB replied to a thread tire question in Our Town
    FWIW, with AWD or 4WD you can't replace just one tire. They all have to be the same diameter. You can get away with a thousand miles or so difference, but after that you'll run into some problems and can get a noticable "chatter" or "bump" which...

    NSB replied to a thread tire question in Our Town
    I worked for both GM and Ford as a quality engineer and quality manager in their manufacturing plants. Neither company has anything to do with tires other than putting them on the car. Contrary to popular belief, the DO NOT put sub-standard tires on...

    All glasses are "safety glass". The Z87 signifies a level of protection against impact such as one might find in a work environment or to be used with shooting. The generic "safety glass" term is for glasses everyone wears to improve vision. It...

    Tell the up front you won't take it without insurance. As stated above, you'll probably pay for it but it's worth it. I once received a 2k high wall with a stock cracked at the wrist. Also, pay an extra twenty bucks to have it shipped in a plastic...

    NSB replied to a thread Loctite 222 OR 243 in Our Town
    Either one will work fine. If you read the fine print, the purple is for smaller screws than the blue, but most gunsmiths and "old timers" have been using blue forever and it never seems to fail. I've used blue for many, many years and I've never...

    NSB replied to a thread Cutting Dacron in Cast Boolits
    You don't need sheets at all. Just buy a bag of dacron pillow filler and us it. Just "pluck" the amount you need (about .5g) and use it. It fills the space and then burns up upon ignition. I actually don't know anyone using sheets anymore.

    I've killed somewhere over sixty deer with .357mag/max bullets to date. Most never made it past fifty yards. Also, most hit through the lungs at mid-level didn't bleed a whole lot. I have yet to lose even one deer shot with that caliber. I've shot...
