    Ever since I got married she has hunted deer with that rifle because it was light for her to carry, easy to work, had a pretty good Leopold scope on it, and just "fit" her well. But all of these years I also read lots of articles about the "best"...

    About 25 years ago when I bought the 356, I also bought 500 new, empty cases and one box of 100, 220 grain Speer jacketed bullets for it. And I loaded up all 100 of them and now she is running out. Over the last 20 years I have converted almost...

    After following the thread about the failure of cast lead projectiles in the Winchester Model 94 Big Bore in .356 Win that my wife has been using for years for deer hunting, I am going to move her up to a Browning 1885 in 45-70, but don't have much...

    This same set is on sale at Midway for $21.24 plus shipping, but I was reluctant to purchase a set because they didn't have the special rings to mount in them. Why are you trying to get so much for yours for used ones, and I would still have to...

    I purchased a Browning 1885, single shot falling block Winchester HiWall type rifle in 45-70 about 25 years ago, and have shot it all these years with the original open sites. Now that I am getting a little more elderly I am considering mounting a...
