    50 yards and closer, I take a head shot. Further than that, I take a heart/lung shot.

    Almost anything would work, but you absolutely must have rigidity, and a solid attachment to the stock. It's got to support the stock and guide it as it recoils through the bags. That's a pretty violent event, and just like the bedding of the...

    Here's my thought (feel free to disagree with me): With normal shooting, the object of burning the powder is to improve the shooter. However, many of you have improved your proficiency with a rifle to the point where it becomes difficult to...

    I wouldn't really call it a "contraption". It's a simple aluminum plate screwed to the bottom of your stock that simply widens the footprint and turns your V bottom fishing boat into a pontoon platform that doesn't roll over so easy. If you're...

    Sink that low, and I'll make sure your next rifle has a mother of pearl possum inlayed on it instead of a buck. LOL!

    Does anyone fish in Missouri when the Conservation Department does its winter trout stockings at Parks around the St. Louis and Kansas City Areas? What flies do you use?

    Gear, when using good quality Reamers with stone sharpened edges, you would be surprised how consistent the diameters are. I just cut two more chambers last week, and carefully measured the throats on them. It will surprise you to know that the...

    You're average booliteer has more weight variance than that in his castings as a matter of course (However, that doesn't mean those variations are off balance.). This just shows how little it takes to blow a group at high velocity. I have been...

    Yeah, but a pig can't move his head like a deer can either. Not to be argumentative, and certainly things don't add up, but have you ever wrapped a bullet "proof" vest around an immovable object and had at it? It's relatively easy to shoot through...

    I would just like to echo Longbows experience as well. Of course, I'm not shooting full house loads, but I have never had boolit setback ever, and I'm not a big fan of crimping in the first place. There's an aweful lot of boolit in that cartridge to...

    I've done XRF testing of both these alloys (COWW and range scrap). the results have been surprisingly consistent. COWW is about 2.5% SB and lead across the board. I don't even measure it anymore. a random sample from a 200lb smelt has always...

    I've done the same (sans dryer lint) and it worked great. if I were going to hunt with it, I'd use a 180ish grain boolit, lubed with 45/45/10, with a GC. I would cast out of COWW and drop them on a towel. Dead deer.

    Because people who use FCDs on pistols are thinking that it's the same for rifles. For the record, the pistol style FCD is not necessarily a problem either. it's not the crimping part that sizes your boolits down, it's that doggon carbide ring...
