    I once killed a rabbit with one 7 1/2 shot through the top of the ear. It must have scared him to death or caused a heart attack. At the time my kids wouldn't eat wild game, but he made the best chicken pie they ever ate.

    The only way to totally avoid the annoying calls is to get rid of the phone. Remember when there were no bells ringing to disturb your dinner/peace. Who needs the aggravation?

    I've tried some hotter loads using 1680 and a 115gr gc in a 1931 OP. I gave it up because it Was painful and decided something less vigorous was appropriate.

    I prefer to shoot as cast or size as little as possible. I have seen bullets sized down quite a bit and still be accurate. .004 should be okay to size down with out a lot of deformation. Measure some known items with your caliper ( dowel pins,...

    I specialize in bolt action rifles, and can do just about anything to one you might like. And I don't allow AR types or others like that in the shop. I just don't want to deal with the typical type of person who owns them. So no, not all 'smiths are...

    If anyone enters your home and is offended or thinks the axe is "inappropriate," kick them out IMMEDIATELY! And never let them in again. Life's too short to waste on folks like that!

    An hatchet should cut thru them pretty well you just need to go deep enough on each side to be able to bend and break them. For easy of the cut a large hammer can be used to drive the hatchet in a straight line easier than swinging it
