    My thinking too Ric. I guess that's why I stuck a 311290 deep in some neck turned federal match cases and had at it. I didn't have time to screw around with any load development so I used 26 grains of IMR-4895 and a tuft of dacron. The chamber...

    I have about 3000 lbs on hand of casting lead. I keep it simple, but that is because I do not hunt with cast bullets. Cast bullets are just a way to shoot as inexpensively as possible. Most of it is 92-6-2 alloy from a foundry. Stacked as it...

    Well done. I helped track an 8 pt last night that one of the guys in the camp next to my place shot at the end of the day. He hit it with a 180 gr jacketed bullet at 40 yards. Gut shot it. He has a reputation for being a lousy shot and...

    MUSTANG replied to a thread AR generational gap in Factory Rifles
    Got to thinking; I do have an affinity for my AR after all: We only shoot a few dozen rounds a year, but enjoy it. Can't wait till the Grandsons get to be about 12 or 13 and let them have a go at it. I remember a friend of mine when we were...

    I see this is an old (almost 7 years old) posting. What accuracy did you find with these swaged 8x50 R Mannlicher bullets from 9mm brass?

    Great post!!! I am not putting a $200 scope on my sniper rifle, or a $50 red dot on my AR15. That does not make me a snob. I am not putting a $2000 scope on my 10/22. That makes me look stupid. I have scopes in every class. Type of gun,...

    I would like to spend about $125 on a better trigger for my son's AR. It does not matter if it is a single or double stage trigger. Looking for something reliable but with little or no creep and a pull weight of about 3.5 to 4.5 lbs. He has a...

    You are correct and I agree most heartily. Some of my best friends have high dollar scopes on their guns and I am happy for them. Do they look down at me for my cheaper brands, not at all. They shoot my rifles and say < man that sure is a clear...

    Start with the Garand as they are more difficult to get at times (in shooters hands/safe like mine and they are not letting go of them). As you have all ready stated, your set up for the 30-06 cartridge now. Then as cash is available pick up an...

    Although we (my wife's) own a Colt AR-15, my opinion can be summed up in one word "TWANG". That buffer spring noise just irritates the heck out of me, from the first time in Boot Camp when I shot a Vietnam worn out M16A1 that rattled like the old...
