    My first Willow was Sand Bar Willow. Just saw it next to the road, stopped and cut a bunch and used that and it worked fine. As Fly pointed out Tree of Heaven works well and is all I use now. I would use what ever willow is available, I get the...

    swheeler replied to a thread Kokanee fishing! in Our Town
    Reading about Kokanee fishing got the juices flowing so for Fathers Day the wife and I went fishing for them. The closest place I could find stocked with them was Newlin Res about a 100 miles from here. We got up about 5am and were on the road just...

    This is the one that I got https://www.trackofthewolf.com/Categories/PartDetail.aspx/883/2/RS-CREED-3-WE but it was about $50 when i got it. If you intend to do any competition your money would be better spent on good sights. If you are going to...

    As country gent suggests create a false shoulder to set headspace, I use a slight crush fit, fireform and neck size only on future reloadings. If after several loadings you have trouble chambering rounds you may have to FL resize this brass, if so...

    swheeler replied to a thread Kokanee fishing! in Our Town
    I've caught them through the ice jigging a Swedish pimple tipped with maggot or white corn. In the fall around spawn I've landed many on a lime green Needlefish spoon and trolling cowbells or ford fenders with rubber band set up and corn. I haven't...

    This would be a good test for Larry to do for the forum though. Lets say take his favorite 06 equipped with a strain gauge, drive a 150 grain Hornady spire point 12 inches into the barrel and load a case with 49 grains of 4895 topped off with a wad...

    Well I bit the Boolit, so to speak, and ordered a 40-50 Shiloh yesterday from Bill Goodman. Figured if it doesn't meet my expectations I can always run it out to 40-70. But it is just too cute to not have fun with. It should be a fine deer rifle,...

    I put one of the TOW verniers on mine and it worked just fine for 100yd work. If you can find it try some SR4759 that gave me the best groups with the Lee Boolit. Bob

    I get a little lead every time I shoot but not enough to be a problem. I tried straight WW lead and it leaded so bad that within 10 shots I couldn't keep them on paper. 20-1 has always worked good for me in my Pedersoli with BP. Never tried...

    Sounds dangerous! Normal power load, hum what is the load density now that you have a "chamber" X 2 or 3 volume with a nice WAD of dacron to compress air and clobber that stuck projo, sounds like SEE waiting to happen. Hatcher tried it once and...

    Oztrapr, PP is the way to go for sure. Were you with the Australian Team? I was a range officer at Camp Butner in 15, sure was a hot place. The South Africans are great people, I lived there in 82 and 83 working and was always treated well....

    If you have a copy of Hanloaders Digest 12Th Edition 1990(27 years ago) open it to page 128. The article is titled Shooting Zinc in Big Bores, by Karl Bosselmann, about five pages long with test data for Zamak cast bullets. Veral Smith made him 3...

    If lead has a BHN of 5, zinc approx 50, copper/ gilding metal just over 100 what makes you think you will wear the barrel out? Most barrels are "shot out" by throat erosion not friction wearing the lands down, the lands are usually damaged by...

    That sounds dangerous and I would expect at the least a bulged/ruined barrel, maybe lost fingers, eye or worse.

    As an old guy I like BIG apertures on both ends. I find it is easier to center things with lots of daylight around the target. I use the largest front aperture I have and have drilled out my Hadley cups, way oversize. With the smaller apertures in...

    I have a friend with one and he isn't shooting that heavy a load, 85gr I believe and he did very well with it last year out 1200yd. This year he is shooting an original English made rifle since the world shoot in OZ is coming up and he competes in...

    I've used the 70 Speer semi pointed in my Savage 223 with 1:9 twist, Win 748 is the powder to push it 3k out of 22 inch barrel with fine accuracy, under moa at 200 yds. I could be wrong but think your 1995 Mark II 223 has a 1:12 twist.
