    Ken, sounds like some great finds. The last gunshow I was working at, a friend and fellow vendor who I only see once a year and always brings me various lots of lead alloys that he comes across (at a reasonable price)...also handed me a small...

    I had a 450 that was leaky. I don't the the equipment nor machining skills to do what you mention. I have one steel plate with portable heater with several D&T'd holes to mount numerous brands of lubesizers. So, for the leaky 450, I made a...

    It's an interesting question fish4bugs but my casting experience doesn't give a good answer to your question. If the stars line up right I can alternate two 2-cav moulds and achieve a similar production rate as I can with a 4-cav or even 5 or 6-cav....

    Loaded up 15 rounds of 35 Whelen ammo for my hunting rifles and prepped 50 pieces of new RP brass for my brother. Loaded the new brass with J-words today and put them back in the tumbler for a final polish. Nap time!

    I think you might find that the rim on the 50/90 is thicker as a well as being wider than the 50/95. This might be why your action is difficult to close. The 50/110, 348 and 50 Ak share the same head size, rim diameter and rim thickness. The...

    I agree, no need for a GC with factory spec 38-55 ammo and little need to go faster, IMHO. Mine drop @ .380 and that seems to be working fine in my 1901 vintage 94. Can't speak to elk hunting with it, mine's mainly a range toy or eye candy and I've...

    TXGunNut replied to a thread Venison vs Beef in Our Town
    Not a big fan of beef, prefer wild pork over beef or even venison. Since I hunt down south the meat is on ice within a few hours and stays there for a least a few days, bloody water is drained and replaced with ice at least once before I process it.

    Nice! I must admit that my 73 has a tang sight sitting on the shelf and an assortment of front sights nearby. I don't have a tang sight for my 92's but that is easily remedied. Latest 92 has a full buckhorn and my eyes like them almost as well as...

    Glocks are excellent handguns, they just aren't for everybody. If the situation calls for it I can manipulate a Glock better than most but I prefer my 1911's and other guns. The redeeming quality of the Glock is that most folks can be easily trained...

    I have no immediate plans of hunting with this rifle but wouldn't rule it out for the small S Texas white-tails. I'm sure many thousands of deer have fallen to this cartridge but I have other rifles better suited to the task and my eyesight. This...

    Congrats on all three accounts, you are indeed a lucky man. I don't think there's a better deer cartridge than the 358 and there's a lot to like about the 99 as well. Nicely done!
