    Nobade replied to a thread Fillers...? in Single Shot Guns
    I have used a lot of that BPI buffer, and still have a few containers of it here. I agree, it does work very well and doesn't harden over time. And the raising pressure is what I am counting on. RE22 by itself in a 30-30 will barely get the bullet...

    McFred replied to a thread .243WSSM in an AR? in Military Rifles
    I like the stubby cases too. I've got a wildcatted 7mm WSSM. It's more capacity than 7mm-08 and less than .284 Winchester, but with 180 VLDs and a long barrel I can get them to 2820fps and they impact steel with authority at range and they...

    McFred replied to a thread .243WSSM in an AR? in Military Rifles
    Hornady's making WSSM brass now and Winchester came out with a new production lot pretty recently. There were 250 Winchester cases on the LGS shelves around Christmas (at only 37 per too). I know, Brother! I hate variety too! :???: I...

    If you layer it rather than mix it, the vertical can be managed better.

    Pillow stuffing from Walmart is Dacron. Old Navy life vests are stuffed with kapok. On this topic, I recently started playing with an old Marlin 336 with a microgroove barrel and plain base bullets. Pretty much everything I tried without fillers...

    I never worried much about barrel life on .223 and similar cartridges. By the time you buy a $700+ gun, with a $500+ scope and churn through 4,000-12,000 (30k?!?) rounds, I figure another $300 for a rebarrel is a drop in the bucket. Some guns are...

    Is that the same as 8x50r Lebel? If it is you can buy ready made brass from Graf's. Ppu brand.

    The cedar lizard bedding from Walmart works pretty well and is already shredded up.

    Nothing new under the sun, right? What about the .338-378 Weatherby Magnum? Pretty sure that will outperform the 338LM too.

    I've had a 338/300 RUM AKA .338 Edge for a number of years. It holds a little more powder than the .338 Lapua but uses a regular magnum bolt face and fits well within the Rem 700 design envelope. More case capacity means more performance...
