    I agree with your estimate of 100 yards. I used the Hornady ballistics calculator and the coefficient of their 230fmj. I assumed a velocity of around 950fps which falls in the middle range of the velocity charts for carbine barrels. It still shows...

    There used to be a manual kit for it but I haven't seen one for a long time. You might be able to rig something up if you take the return spring off. kmw1954-------we don't really have any powder use in common other than maybe the HP38. I use...

    I have two knives that will hold an edge for an incredibly long time. One is an early Cold Steel san mai tanto (around 1994) and a Cold Steel Ranger tanto which is about the same age(carbon steel). On various occasions I have skinned, boned, and...

    There must be some lot to lot variance causing your issue. I have six of them permanently mounted on turrets that I use for loading 38 special, 357 mag, 9mm, 40 S&W, 45 ACP, and 223 rifle with a variety of powders. All of mine drop either right on...

    Ed Harris reports that data about Bullseye in the link I posted previously. I don't have any old powder to compare the new stuff to.

    Wolfram..... As you can see from the varied responses, each gun makes it's own rules as to what it will shoot well. All you can do is try it out and see how it works for you in your handgun. If you do so, please report back on your results. More...

    The Girsan Regard pistol, made in Turkey, is a clone of the Beretta 92fs. This pistol is getting some good reviews over the last few years. It has been imported by a couple of different companies, currently by EAA if what I read is correct.

    The boolit is still supported by the case walls as it enters the throat of the cylinder. The throat supports the boolit very tightly until the base of the boolit clears the cylinder, at which time the nose is already into the barrel and probably...

    I owned one of those Sharp brand knives just like the one in the picture. I loved the way it felt in my hand and loved the way it cut. Then one day, a big crescent moon shaped chunk broke out of the blade ending that. I was skinning a deer with it...

    That PB load should function the gun. It is slightly under the starting load but then my XD functions fine with slightly less than starting loads of other powders.
