    Take a look at Unique, 2400, and Trailboss. You can safely get some really soft shooting loads with all three powders. Your best bet for charge weights....to be safe, is to take what's in published manuals or reliable on-line sources. Loads off the...

    Yes, Turnbull. He also did a High Wall for me in 45-70. Both are outstanding shooters and look nice besides.

    I was the first one to reply to this and it seemed to disappear. I'll add it again. I don't like to see people join forums to bash someone on line. For a first post, this is inappropriate. This isn't how to resolve a problem and doesn't provide...

    As a general rule, longer bullets shoot better than short ones. In a gun with a .4575" bore, longer means more weight. Every one of the 45-70's I've own/owned shot better with heavier bullets. If you look at the guys shooting silhouette/long range...

    KCSO, correct on the handguns. In this case the OP is looking at a lever gun.

    NSB replied to a thread Winchester 1886 Extra light in Leverguns
    None of the loads I shoot out of any of my 45-70's are "heavy hitters". My favorite loads are 400g bullets around 1350-1450fps and to date I haven't recovered a single bullet from a dozen or so deer shot with any of them. All have been complete...

    Here's a thought no one seems to be thinking of: if he's developing a flinch with this gun, he's developing bad shooting habits as well. You simply might be better off getting him something entirely different until he has enough experience and size...

    I think you'd be way ahead to just load light loads in a .357 case and use them. I shot very, very light loads in a couple of lever guns and shot them all the time in competition in a couple of handguns. My handgun loads would shoot ragged holes at...

    Get the Win/Miroku and send it out (take it actually, it's close by to get it done).

    They can be superbly accurate. These were fired at 114 measured yards at my camp off my deck.

    NSB replied to a thread Need advice on a generator in Our Town
    I built AC units for a living for forty years. AC Delco and Fedders. The number doesn't mean much if it's not working right or there is a lack of insulation. That's why they call them "heat exchangers". Again, the guy's talking about a very small...

    How big of an AC unit do you think you need for 256 sq.ft.? With any insulation in the building it won't take much to cool it off. A diesel generator to run an AC this size is like putting air brakes on a turtle.

    It sounds like you're making a small building to work out of. I can tell you what I did, and I'm satisfied with it, but you might want something different. I'm in a location where I have no utilities at all. In fact, I have no cell service either. I...

    For four years I towed a 22ft. 5th wheel with a GMC S10 pickup truck with no problems at all. It only had a 4.3L six in it. Never over heated and only on the worst hills did I have to slow down to around 50mph to top them. I'm not saying that was a...

    Here's what I've been using. Works for me. I've been using the 158g and the 180g XTP bullets for several years now and haven't had any "blow up" on deer. I've used a Win/Miroku Low Wall rechambered and the TC Encore with the MGM bbl. Great results...

    After several years of shooting the Max out of two different rifles, I've finally settled on 1680 powder as being the best for me. I have two pages of load data and a lot of it's good stuff, but the best loads overall are with the 1680. I use it for...

    I see guys doing this all the time when shooting between cast and jacketed bullets. I'm not so sure it's OK with BP though. Black powder does leave a lot of residue in the barrel. I'd be cautious about increasing pressure by doing this. I'd say that...

    If you can spend the money, get a CZ455 and you'll not only have a great .22mag, but for around a hundred and thirty bucks you can get extra barrels in 17HMR and .22lr. I have one and each one shoots right up there in Anschutz territory. Changing...
