    GhostHawk replied to a thread Accuracy in Hunting with CB's
    In both .357mag single shot rifle and .444marlin handi rifles I got cloverleaf's at 25 and 50 yards sighting in. In both cases at 100 yards I had 2 touching and pulled the third half an inch up and left. I don't hunt anymore so that was good...

    Shoot the .22lr for sure. On the shotgun shells, if you take a fairly narrow rounded tip point. Like a pair of small forceps. Go into the center then lift one side, work your way around. Tip out the shot, save the wad, check the powder. If it is...

    30 seconds would be fine with me. I think I would be ok with 3 seconds. Come Lord, I await your return. You called, I have come.

    I have a pair of Ruger Mk III, 22/45's. Both have a truglo 60$ red dot mounted on them. Both will put 10 rounds in a pop bottle top at 20 feet with either myself or the wife at the trigger. I'm 64 and she is 60, neither of us is doing well with...

    If it was me I'd start by water dropping. #2 would be 50/50 range scrap and COWW with a little tin added. #3 would be to verify throat size with a chamber cast. So I can confirm what size I need. And then make sure I am getting it. In my...

    I noticed that Budsgunshop had my favorite .22lr for 5 cents a round. Told the wife, but decided for now we are stacked high enough.

    Exactly so! My wife and I agreed that from the time she gets home from work at 4:15 until 8 is family time. No puters, no running off to the casting room. It is OUR time. The other 20 hours of the day are mine. Now I am retired, so if I feel...

    Personally I think a lot of the parallax talk is hype from the scope company's. Airgunner's do tend to get into it more as for accuracy they often shoot with high magnification and short ranges. For a purpose like that I can see spending extra...

    Growing up I was lucky enough to get to know two older guys who lived out on the edge of the woods. Off the grid we would say today. I never saw a year when those two guys did not get a young tender deer for eating. Both had lever guns in .35 Rem. ...

    6 grains of Red Dot under any bullet in the 200-310 grain range will work. Essentially a .44 mag round in a .444marlin long case. I have simply not had the energy to pack the range bag, pack the car, drive to the range, unpack, shoot, and then...

    Different strokes. Me I started out with my dad's Bushnell deer rifle scope. 3x9x40 had to go to tall rings to mount it. But once I learned it I was shooting 12 ga hulls laid on the snow so I could only see the brass base. 90% were hit in the...

    Why do you need heavier bullets? Why not just shoot 55 gr and be happy? If you really do need a .223 that will handle heavier bullets I suspect it would be cheaper to start from scratch with a gun that has the twist rate you want.

    Are those bullets going to be big enough? Fit is king, get it right first and the rest falls into line quickly and easily. My Yugo SKS slugged at .312. Standard .312 185 gr gc bullets from a lee mold were too small and leaded like a !#!#^$%. ...

    I would agree that if planning on a longer barrel a steel breech would be IMO a good idea. And give the option for a Red Dot or scope down the road. Gunguy well there are springers and then there are springers. I have a Hatsan 135 QE Vortex...
