    Webmonkey nailed it IMO. Buy a new box for the Taurus, keep them marked and separated. They should fire form to fit.

    I believe that might have been huntersdog that had them for sale. But I believe he found someone local to take them. Good luck hunting. Set the money aside now, and about 50% more than you think you'll need. Next time you find one strike fast...

    Magtech brass runs around a buck a piece. .444marlin brass can run higher than that. .303 british works but takes some work. I had to spin them, thin down the rim a bit. But then fireformed they work fine. As to dies, I don't try to resize...

    I have a fistful of the H&R Handi's in both rifle and shotgun. But they don't make those anymore. On the plus side I recently found a brand new .45 colt handi barrel here for what I thought was a reasonable price. I have looked hard at the...

    I sit on the fence between 1 and 2. Which way I lean depends on the application. I will never spend more for optics than I did for the gun. 1/3 to 1/4 of gun price is my target. That means that I have Simmon's 4x12x40 scopes on my Handi...

    Mine dates back to about 1972. Shot it with iron sights for 20 years and then the eyes would just not keep up. Put a Bushnell 3x9x40 full size deer rifle scope on it and she really hit the mark for a couple more decades. Still have her, keep her...

    I tried some alcohol, but I grabbed the wrong one, got 50/50. Half mixed with the alox, half sat on the bottom and acted like water. So I added a shot of mineral spirits, and since I had nothing to lose a chunk of JPW. Shook the **** out of it,...

    I looked at those images. What got me curious was 2 points. What are they eating, and where? Where are they drinking? Are there small puddles scattered? Or only one source? If you can find where they are moving, then find the right time to be...

    I did opos's trick with the wire insulation, then put just a dab of white out on the top to make the contrast easier to see. Took a little trial and error, and once it was right stuck it in place with a little hot melt glue. Between that and...

    I learned the most by buying a inexpensive 45 lb fiberglass recurve bow and a tree stand. Start spending as many early mornings and afternoons out there as you can. Look for places with lots of tracks, food, trails to water, bedding areas out...

    Sorry yes, .223 in H&R Handi rifle. I don't think there is a wrong answer here. You can either buy another barrel or shoot the one you have.

    If they were offering Pistol calibers at 3-350$ price range I suspect many would buy. Heck I would buy a couple. I just spent 400$ for an H&R barrel in .45colt. And it was worth that to me because A I wanted one. B They don't make them...

    When the .22lr crunch hit I was sitting on a fair stash. But I still hung up my Ruger 10/22. No point in burning ammo that is hard to replace. So I started with some 55 gr FMJ's from Monmouth at a decent price. Still have most of them. But it...
