    I have a very old pair of PAST gloves and have found nothing better for a range glove. I hunt with bare hands or plain leather gloves. I don't shoot enough while hunting to notice a difference. The past gloves have a thick leather palm, not a soft...

    Boerancher, thanks for a well written explanation in real life terms vs a rant against what millions are going through now days. I wish there was an easy fix or even a quick one.

    360 DW brass was available and you wouldn't need much. To anneal get a 1/4" dr deep socket and an adapter from 1/4" drive to 6 point for a cordless drill/driver. Set the cartridge in the socket turning it as it goes into an LP torch flame. When you...

    MT Gianni replied to a thread Prilosec in Our Town
    I had a hiatal hernia and bleeding esophagus in the early 90's. I was on Xantac 75 three pills a day alternate one month then Prilosec for 30 days before two name changes. When it was new they didn't want anyone taking it for over 30 days. I opted...

    As far as a walking around gun, I am really impressed with the 16"-18" bbl lengths.

    17 Hornet, 22 hornet or 222 in that order. Loaded to your level a 17 cal 25 gr still explodes things @ 2400 fps. Get a contender carbine bbl and you will soon have all 3.

    I like it in the 40 S&W and it shows plenty of promise in 44 Special. If I were starting today it would be one of my standards.

    http://noebulletmolds.com/NV/index.php?cPath=26_177&osCsid=5v0hobtpqphd1s0oo56cd30d13 I would try this mold, hope it casts fat, Beagle it if it doesn't, get a custom sizing die @ 0.261" and try it with fat bullets. It gives you an attempt to make...

    The bearing surface of the bullets are different, and it isn't an unusual occurrence.

    I have two smokers, a charcoal grill and a lp grill hooked to my 500 gallon tank. I don't see a need to buy pellets. 90 % of our outdoor camp cooking is done in dutch ovens.

    The shotgun and rifle frames should be treated at different levels by the users. The fat firing pin hole and iron vs steel give you very different pressures & velocities you can shoot at. You might get buy finding and fitting a 357 magnum frame to...

    Both have a similar bore to weight ratio. Case capacity in the 7mm is all over. I would compare the grains of water held in each case. . I suspect the smaller capacity of the 7x57 case is giving you a more efficient burn. I have heard of almost 4 gr...

    Encore barrels are really cheap in 7 Remington and 300 Winchester magnum. Few want to shoot them just for recreation. Load them down to a little over 30-06 velocities and you save $100 on the bbl.

    Not worth the headache to deal with destroying perfectly functional firearms. And yes, it is B-S that the BATF has gotten to the point of removing overseas war-trophy rifles from service-members.

    For me unquenched ww tend to shoot best up to 1800 fps at most. The transition might be around 1600. A lot depends on your shooting. I see little need to wait to cast on a day that I have to find time to size as well. It's much easier to size a week...

    you'd have a 6.5-6.8SPC or a 6.5-30 Herrett Rimless wildcat. I think you'd at the most gain just a couple of grains more capacity than a 6.5 Grendel and also be limited by the magazine length restriction for AR15 rifles at around 2.26" so you'd...

    I agree, I would have left my 09-10 Kandahar deployment with a Winchester-made .303 P14, a 7.62x51 Ishapore Enfield and a couple of old SMLEs if the rules had been different. Regular US soldiers have not really ever had a chance to bring back war...

    None of them will be able to be returned to the States. Last time I went over there, the legal restriction by the US and NATO was that only items that classified as an Antique under the BATFE definition (Pre 1898 designs) would be allowed to be...

    MT Gianni replied to a thread what size truck in Our Town
    If you are going to pull something get a dedicated pull truck and keep it for decades. Get a smaller rig for every day runarounds. Your bank balance will show the difference. A good pull truck is expensive and deservedly so.

    Bob Hagel didn't care for the 35 Remington as he had seen too many instances of perfect mushrooming bullets with insufficient penetration on Elk. A good cast bullet kicks that argument to the curb, a Saeco 352, 245 gr sends it packing. I like the 30...
