    shdwlkr replied to a thread Ford 6.0? Yay-Nay? in Our Town
    Well I have diesel pickups, that's right I said more than one. I have them because I never know what I will find and load in the back. One truck weights 8900 pounds which is empty to me. The other I have to admit is more of a 4x4 car so far. I have...

    shdwlkr replied to a thread 14 lbs lighter! in Our Town
    I remember well entering post at 265 pounds and 6 foot 4 inches and just a mere 8 weeks later being 176 pounds. Training at an Airborne Post will do that for a person. I hated the first few weeks then I learned the whole reason for what we were...

    Each gun is a different story for sure but good advice to start low as we know. Sure looks like 2400 is going to be hard to beat. Any of those powders around that burn rate would be worth a look see. Any info on primers used? This is a...

    9-11-2001 reminds me of a day my parents were never able to forget 12-7-1941. The 16 years since our day of tragedy has not created a safer world for any of us. We have lost friends and family. Our nation as a whole is more divided than it has...

    I picked one of those rifles up off of GB in fast twist .50 awhile back and keep promising myself to go shoot it but haven't. Also, that's another one of those that I need to get St. Peter to let me bring along. Anyone have any loads for one using...

    I have a 1-10" twisted Shilen barreled .257 AI and get great accuracy with that boolit but found that one mould I have casts a boolit that's too small of a diameter in the nose. Plus, I push that boolit at just over 1600 fps. In my opinion, you...

    I have had great luck with the 120 grain RCBS boolit in a .257 Roberts Ackley Improved. Just make sure the long nose is a snug fit in the bore.

    Anyone who doesn't stand for our National Anthem should spend a few years in uniform. Time to bring back the draft and let those snowflakes get to see what it means to be an American up close and personal

    Great work Abunaitoo. I used Blue Dot for some .30 carbine loads with cast & had pretty good luck but it was a narrow band between function and too much pressure. This is turning into a real thorough wringing out of this cartridge.

    Thanks for keeping us posted Abunaitoo! Looks like 2400 is the ticket. I use a lot of WW 296/H110 in the regular .30 carbine but that's using heavier bullets. It burns great in .30 cal, I wonder about lighter .22 bullets though. Plus, it's one...
