    CW, did you ever have any luck with the 2nd box I never received of 450 BM boolits? According to the post office they delivered it. I still think someone probably stole it out of my mailbox. I filled out a police report but never heard back from...

    I have a Walther talon 22 magnum with a nitro piston that I bought 10 years ago and still going strong. I tested about 15/20 pellets through it the other day and found The 18.13 grain JSB jumbo heavies to shoot the tightest groups at 23 yards(the...

    I tried my browning 800 express 22 pistol right before dark. I tried predator, crow magnum, and rocket pellets at approx 15 yards if I had to guess. The predators grouped around 1 3/4” or more, the crow magnums were about the same. The rockets put...

    I read about the second stage holding the sear as well. So I would assume some creep is is good/safe. I also was still scratching my head on why the 15 grain Diabolo heavies shot a large group compared to my jumbos and RS. I remember the heavies...

    Do you have a spring in your gun or is it piston driven? I hear “spring gun are hold sensitive. My rifle has a piston in it so from what I’ve read it’s more forgiving. My Browning 800 express 22 cal pistol is a springer but I believe with the...

    No matter what pistol boolit/bullet you use for self-defense on a Bear if you don’t hit in the head or the back bone it’s not gonna stop it imo. I’ve seen ALOT of black bear, small and large, run with lung and heart shots like they haven’t been hit...

    I figured I’d get one of those “beanbag” type rests to shoot off of. I knew the lead sled definitely was not answer when shooting this gun. My best groups came with using a firm hold and pulling it back tightly onto my sled. Thanks for the tip. ...

    The person I talk to was aware that Wisconsin was trying to pass a bill a few years back for felons to legally own muzzleloaders older than 1900 but I don’t think it ever got passed.

    Randy my gun likes the 18 grain jumbo heavy JSBs the best as well. I shot three groups with them at approx 23 yards today. I had one fly on the first group about a quarter inch away from my other five that went in one large hole about the size of...

    I just went out and tried about 15 or so different pellets through my gun at 23 yards give or take. It was from one side of my garage and out the back door to my Fenceline before it goes down the hill. So it was the furthest spot I could Shoot. Even...

    Yeah I know I should’ve never filled the holes in. I figured worst-case i’ll have to drill them back out. It was good practice at the time but obviously I wasn’t thinking. If you find amount you’d be my hero! I posted pictures of it last year here...

    I removed the peep sight off it and filled in the tapped holes. I would like to install an optic on it for my old eyes. Anyone have a scope mount laying around? I was hoping for a no drill ATI, b square, or what ever. Thanks

    Not trying to tell you I told you so but the 35 Rem a rare caliber in a 760 or 7600. I agree $350 or so range is about right for a used one in a common caliber but not in 35 Rem. The 35 Rem is one of the rarest calibers in the Remington 760/7600...

    I know a lot of people sort out the small primered 45 ACP brass. If you've got a batch you're just going to drop off at the recycler let me have it. Would't care to pay shipping on a SFRB or trade you something for it.
