    It can be a 38-55, it will just cost a little extra. Like double. But for you, no problem!

    Data points on the 44mag are very few, 32 as well I believe. That somewhat invalidates the data on those 2. What it shows ,to me anyway, is that any of the typical sd rounds,380 to 45acp, have very similar trsults in actual shootings. The 22 lr...

    A weekend spent in the backyard will id the things you forgot or don't need. A rainy cold night spent without a ground cover in the back yard is just an inconvirnce. In the outback it can be a disaster.

    Yes, it seems to make a very well balanced and effective cartridge. Certainly enough for hunting most anything without terrible recoil. I am surprised it didn't get to be more popular, but any more everybody wants a Lapua or ultramag. Then they...

    To tangsight: I may try it but would want some really fine vibrations too, I could see cases rattling and powder granuales bouncing out as they settle. Also could see taller cases tipping out of the shallower loading blocks. ...

    Nice job. I have never killed (or even hunted) an antelope, hope to someday. I have killed a few white tail deer with the 32-20 though, Winchester 1892 and Marlin 1894. The 32's are under rated by the un- initiated. JW

    I don't vibrate cases to settle charges. I do use a 3'drop tube or a slow pour above the funnel from about 3". I then compress the charge using the first wad with a die.

    Very interesting and quite helpful BUT as others have noted the samples for some categories are likely too small to give accurate data. Shot placement will always be key but when using real shootings that's hard to take into consideration. Funny how...

    I got to shoot this rifle some more today, with good results. I had been patching using green bar paper, but it's thick enough to need sizing after patching. This time I tried 9# onion skin paper which ended up at .339" after wrapping, and it worked...

    Exactly. My M1 shot just fine with PPCBs, but getting them into the chamber undamaged was the challenge. It worked just fine as a single shot but not as a repeater.

    It all depends on how bad you need it. If you're out of lead and its Sat., you may have to pay whatever. If it's the day after a range trip and you already have a stash, you have time t shop around.

    Had the 25/20 CL in the late 80s and no matter what was tried, many loads and different bullets, never could get it to shoot worth crapola. Even lapped the barrel and shot groups without the hand guard. Fast forward 15+ years and buy a 32/20CL the...

    Nice range. I live in town now and can’t have a set up like that. I do have about a 24 yd. section in the house I can shoot through though. I have to drive a short distance out of town to shoot further, so I envy your set up. Very nice!
