    Smoke4340, AGREED. = The Remington Model 760 in .30-06/.308/.270 would be adequate for most any game up to & including elk/moose & there are LOTS of the 760s around in the LGS/gun shows & often at low prices. (The last .30-06 pump with a decent...

    725, EXACTLY.= My favorite "hog gun" is my old Model 760 Remington in .300 Savage. (My GCCB load is a "SA War era" equivalent of the old-school .30-40 Krag load.) Imo, any bullet that will consistently "pass through" a hog's chest is likely...

    my first thought was a dirty powder, then I would try your carnauba red, and maybe up your tin to 2-2.5%, how much antimony is in there? and change things one at a time, so you will know what helps and what hurts. but since you have a scope already...

    I may have confused a couple people, the alloy I refer to using and hardening successfully is 5/5/.5/90, the 4.5/5.5/.5/90 I am talking about is in the calculated stage and I was just about to weigh all the ingredients up and get ready to make a...

    "The higher the tin content of the alloy the less the alloy will respond to heat treating and the faster it will age soften. (2-3% is fine unless your goal is 30+ BHN which is very rarely needed)" Also, there are two...

    well like I said, I have successfully HT'd mine, I just wanted to ask about the age softening and also if any of you had experience with this rumor. like I said in the 1st post I don't have a tester, but I would guess that after a week or two to let...

    they ( I don't remember where I read this) say because of the high amount of tin,it won't properly heat treat, it will just soften back up after a while, that's why I use 4.5% tin and5.5%sb, that way if they are right that might help slow down the...

    I use pine shavings that we have for our guinea pigs and rabbit, they are a little big (the shavings) so I just wad a handful up and tear/rip/twist it up into finer pieces. that's my favorite flux, though I do use wax on occasion.

    I have successfully hardened my lyman #2 with.5% copper in it. I have also heard that lyman #2 doesn't heat treat. I know mine hardened an appreciable amount, but I don't have a tester to give you numbers.i know the copper is a grain refiner and...
