    Same cartridges are 65,000 PSI SAAMI. Priming compound will not produce 65K. With the smokeless muzzloaders some loads are over 50K using a primer designed for a 14.5K max cartridge. The small vent liners restrict the gas pressure enough so it's...

    For me with my current needs or wants it would be a 220 Swift. I love this cartridge. If you want something different 225 Winchesters are nice in single shots.

    I watched as a smart alec rolled a synthetic rug for a rest. His wife wasn't impressed by the hole and burned spots in her bath set.

    Sounds like fun, if I can schedule it, I have a couple things already booked. If I do I will try to round up a couple friends from down that way.

    I enter 2-4 times a day. I haven't won yet, but then I couldn't win a raindrop in a thunderstorm. My wife says you have to enter to win.

    March 14th 1962 my bride met me at Gods house to accept my name. The only time she ever denied me spending money was when I wanted to take her on a cruse for #50. She doesn't know or care what I spend money on. Take that $20 and make Mama know...

    Squeezing the lead as you seat your bullets? Check this by pulling a couple loaded rounds and measuring. Fixes. 1) acquire a larger diameter expander plug/spud 2) Use harder lead, so when you seat the bullet it won't get down sized by tough 9 mm...

    I have a Browning 1886 rifle and a saddle ring carbine. Never had any issues so I never took them apart. I have no idea how close to original they are. I picked up the saddle ring cheap due to some deep stock scratches. Just picked up a blank...

    Comparing one animal to another means nothing. Comparing the same cut of meat from the same animal is easy. Age some, freeze some and prepare them at the same time. Question answered.

    The Deer I shot this year was tough, maybe it was because I took the hide off in the woods, brought it home and was all cut up and in the freezer before Dark. Most years I can't get to them for a Day or Two and they are very tender. I think...

    One more point on the tolerancing. Normally manufactures tend to shoot for the middle of the tolerance. With gage pins they tend to be very close to the plus or minus tolerance. A .0002 plus will be very close to .0002" over and a .0002" under...

    Either one will work for you. Most use the minus tolerance (.0000,-.0002) pins. The tolerance selection is mostly to ensure the pin tolerance doesn't allow a bad part. Example it a hole with 1.000" max and a .999" min. You would select a minus...

    It seems many shooters use the berm as a way to dispose of duds. I had the same experience with a 9mm in the range scrap. It took lots longer to clean up the evidence than to collect the scrap.

    Not sure I want to be in the woods with such inhabitants, armed only with regular turkey weapons. Never thought I'd see the day when I had to also carry big game gun.
