    Glad you found something that's working for you. It's interesting to read about all the different lube mixes everyone uses and the their success or failures.

    Probably but be careful to grip the action by the threaded portion so you don't tweak it. Just for reference I had a #4 SMLE that I put a pipewrench on and 4 foot cheater pipe over the handle and put 300 pounds (me) on the end and the barrel...

    If it weren't for range brass I'd have had to buy to shoot. Of course, I picked up lots of .40 and 9mm that I'll never use while getting the good stuff. I traded lots of the excess for needed calibers, and still have many gals of them. both...

    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...

    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...
