    Interest seems to wax and wane with different firearms. Contenders were hot items then the XP100 took over and I'm thinking the interest in smacking steel animals may have slackened thus the interest in the guns used to do so. Just a guess on my...

    I think measured distance and only computer generated POI will be limiting. Empirical test would be best and will give you practical real world boolit drop information. This is of course post hunt as you either went last weekend, or will be going...

    Hunting is being out in the woods. Nobody says one has to shoot everything that comes along to make it a hunt. Oh, and I try my best to ONLY shoot does.

    I like Avogunner's suggestion to mark the brass for specific rifles/pistols. I may start doing that for the rifles I have multiples of to segregate the brass for each I have one Lee Enfield with a very sloppy chamber that requires necksized brass...

    The Type 99s are chambered in 7.7x58 (basically .31 caliber like an Lee-Enfield or Mosin-Nagant) and is comparable to 30-06 or 308Win in effectiveness. For reloading, its easier to load for than the Type 38s as you can use trimmed down and reformed...

    If ya reline it, you may even want to think about making it come back to life as a 30-20. Certainly does increase your choices of boolits/bullets. Others may correct my opinion on this one.

    How come no one has mentioned pulling the bolt and looking down the barrel? run a brush and some good bore cleaner through the barrel and see what you ave to work with internally. Collector or shooter . . . Barrel condition is still important.

    Hope you saw something, got a shot and have results to report. Looks like whether one uses length or volume the 7X57 has about 10 % volume increase over the 7-08 which could be significant with slow burning powder and loading to full potential. As...
