    KCSO replied to a thread I heard a thump..... in Our Town
    Here the cop would have been just a nice guy. Possession of under an ounce is a citation and prescription pills in the wrong bottle also a low grade offence. She probably got a ticket for traffic and a nice warning.

    Randy the reason I like the Brenneke Classic is because of the wad stack ~ hard felt like material with plastic washers on either side. Nothing there to distort. I've seen the Gualandi wads crush somewhat off center which I think is due to the long...

    What Hickory said! Who knows what powder the factory uses and if and when they change powders. Seems like a lot of work to open hulls to dump powder unless you plan to just cut them off to get the powder. I'd say not worth it even if you knew...

    Gray Fox: I have been leaning toward the Stoeger 12 ga. Supreme Coachgun if I go new. If I can find a decent used Stoeger coachgun or full length (I can cut barrels down to 20") I'd likely buy it and try it. They aren't too pricey. I like side...

    If you keep your gun clean and use proper ammo the Savage 99 will last two life times. I see very few come in for repair and I have one made in the 1950 that had been carried as an elk gun from 1955 to 1998, killed many elk and rode horseback over...

    longbow replied to a thread Load Data in Casting for Shotguns
    I tried using card wads for slug loads a couple of years ago. Not real successful! I had a bunch of shotcups I'd cut gas seal off and bags of nitro card wads so thought I'd try some wad slugs using the shotcups on a card wad column. I put two 12...

    I have to get out and do some more shooting myself. We've had one of the worst fire seasons ever this year and not only was the local range closed due to fire but I was reluctant to go into the bush as was so dry. Not sure why the forest wasn't...

    If you get stubborn ones like that a quick spray of Hornady one shot usually makes them size easily and you don't even have to wipe it off.

    That would be my point. Consumers rejected lower velocity of the 17 HM2. A low velocity 17 HMR load would fair no better.
