    Not much will equal an animal. I meant a deer with lungs full of air or exhaled. Would there be a difference?

    44man replied to a thread Sundays ooops in Our Town
    I had one too. A deer popped out in front of me. I went right just enough to miss and hit a tree root or burl, tore the front out of my 4 runner. I was on the side and then on the roof. I watched the sun roof crumble. Air bag gave me a shiner but I...

    Yes, there is DIE cast but it is done in a mold. Same as mold or mould, which is correct? Anyway lets be friends to share. Get back to the real questions.

    Let it go fellas. It is not important. Only wording and I have the same problem when my friend comes over. He refers to a mold as a die. I lose him all the time until I see he is calling a mold a die. I correct him all the time but it is no use. I...

    I will not say much. I know the pain. I cry over healthy dogs the lord gave me because they will not be with me forever. I really think a dog was a gift from God.

    To be expected after Obumbler. he was the best salesman for guns and ammo ever. I agree to bring back cheap 22 ammo. But all companies that are bought out are under the gun to make money. Usually the company goes belly up. Many of our gun makers...

    If a brush harms a barrel, it must be softer then the brush. Do you even want to shoot jacketed bullets?

    Jello does not work. The huge cavity is a secondary that collapses. Lungs are mostly air. Will a deer die faster breathing in or out? No stuff you can shoot into will equal an animal.

    During times of peak demand, the scrappers pay more for lower quality material. Regardless of how good we think our process is, we still have lots of lead involved in our outcast jackets. They used to overlook that fact when copper brought $4.00...

    Too much velocity with a hard boolit will not be your friend. The larger the meplat the worse it gets. I learned the hard way with deer since it is all I hunt. I bought the BFR revolver in 45-70, worked loads and wound up with 1632 fps. It is so...

    At very close bear range, it will do the job but what if the inertia in a S&W stops a second shot if needed? A "click" with another trigger pull means take the front sight off or have a lot of pepper to season meat. YOUR meat. You need a friend that...

    Lyman 2 is softer then I shoot, mine run 20 to 22 BHN after water dropping. But let's look at it differently. 8 gr of 231 seems reasonable but will be around 25,000 cup. But that is INSTANT and not spread out. I have had more trouble with cast and...
