    Same cartridges are 65,000 PSI SAAMI. Priming compound will not produce 65K. With the smokeless muzzloaders some loads are over 50K using a primer designed for a 14.5K max cartridge. The small vent liners restrict the gas pressure enough so it's...

    For me with my current needs or wants it would be a 220 Swift. I love this cartridge. If you want something different 225 Winchesters are nice in single shots.

    http://bulletin.accurateshooter.com/2013/05/large-vs-small-flash-holes-in-308-win-brass/ I never was concerned about increased pressure of the powder charge from larger flash holes. I do have a mild concern about increased pressure in the primer...

    I watched as a smart alec rolled a synthetic rug for a rest. His wife wasn't impressed by the hole and burned spots in her bath set.

    I have a number of Taurus revolvers in RF and CF. I've had excellent accuracy and reliability from them. If I find a Rossi Or Taurus in a configuration and or caliber I want, the brand doesn't deter me from the purchase. A few of mine in .32...

    I enter 2-4 times a day. I haven't won yet, but then I couldn't win a raindrop in a thunderstorm. My wife says you have to enter to win.

    March 14th 1962 my bride met me at Gods house to accept my name. The only time she ever denied me spending money was when I wanted to take her on a cruse for #50. She doesn't know or care what I spend money on. Take that $20 and make Mama know...

    Norske, I disagree completely on the old .357Mag Factory load wearing out N-frame's quickly. My DAD had a Registered Pre-War .357Mag 8 3/4" that he regularly fired a load of the Thompson Gas Check 158gr bullet over a charge of 2400, way to hot...

    Comparing one animal to another means nothing. Comparing the same cut of meat from the same animal is easy. Age some, freeze some and prepare them at the same time. Question answered.

    One more point on the tolerancing. Normally manufactures tend to shoot for the middle of the tolerance. With gage pins they tend to be very close to the plus or minus tolerance. A .0002 plus will be very close to .0002" over and a .0002" under...

    You can make "demooner" by finding a piece of metal tubing 6inches long that is barely large enough to fit over a .45ACP round. Then cut off about 2/3 off one end of the tube about 1/8" deep. Then you put it over the cartridge in a moonclip and...

    I use 28.0grs of IMR3031 over the Lyman #375449GC cast of Linotype. Gives me great accuracy out of a Winchester 1981-94-Chief Crazy Horse. Under 2" at 100yrds from the bench. That's 5 shots.
