    Yes, I have to agree, and I dont like plastic! I load my sp101 in 327 with a 311008 @ 1000fps. Plenty (and then some) for ground hogs and the like. I just dont see the 327 as a good deer gun , so I feel no need to run it at the top. Truth is I would...

    Correct, the 12 will pattern more evenly than the 20 in general. With the 7/8 load the 20 is great, I much prefer the 12 for 1 1/8 and up. Now for 1 oz, ill take a 16 , but the 20 can come close. Also you can drive the larger payloads faster in...

    I'm a Kit Gun addict, there I said it. Have trouble letting one pass thru my hands, especially a 32! Found this one while checking GB for a friend, probably paid more than I should, but then it's a 32SWL. not generally a fan of Rossi but I've a...

    Biggest contributor to recoil difficulties is gun fit, you may like that stock but it doesn't fit you like it should. Thats assuming a typical weight shotgun. Now I'm a wing shooter but also compete and coach. When we run clinics a box in 10 minutes...

    Greetings I would have to add.. If anyone was carrying a Walker or any of the slightly smaller Dragoons for defensive use they will be a far stouter feller than I am. There is a reason these huge revolvers were know as "Horse Pistols". You need a...

    Sometimes a piece of 3/8" or 1/2" round stock between the move able jaw and part helps to seat the part square. If you have to shimm it definitely allows the part to sit better. This keeps the moveable jaw from over riding the fixed jaw and...

    Check the local pawn shops as used machinist tools seem to make there way there quite often. On the finger indicators if used for measuring from blocks check the ball for flat spots worn on it. Also check it for being sticky as this can be a...

    I don't obsess over what I considered a very minor problem at worst. Since turning to wet tumbling with SS pins the problem doesn't exist, and my press stays clean.

    35 shooter replied to a thread recoil in Single Shot Guns
    Others may differ, but my TC Encore is the easiest recoling rifle i've ever shot. Full power loads from a 35 whelen are really no problem with it. Some of that may be due to the flex type synthetic stock that came on it.

    Winchester must be proud of it since they're calling it a mod. 70. Good looking stock on it. I looked it up on the air gun pro site.
