    I didn't answer because I didn't know. I am curious though. I know the Marlin is set up like the Savage. Are the barrel threads the same?

    9 undrawn frames in a 10 frame box is a sure recipe for disaster. 9 drawn frames in a 10 frame honey super will get you frames that are easier to uncap. Usually but not always. 9 drawn frames in a brood box? I know some people do this. I've...

    There was a time in my life that casting was difficult where I lived. Since I used a Coleman stove, a yard sale pot and a dipper I would drive out on some public land and cast on the tailgate.

    My first 30 cal mold was a Lyman 311041 that weighs 177 gr. I never saw a reason to change. I shoot it in 30-30,30-40 Krag and 3 different 30-06s If I was doing it over I would buy the NOE version. My Lyman drops at .309 and while it works great...

    I never turned my log truck over. Come close a few times. I've seen the duels a foot off the ground before setting back down. Sure does make things pucker down south. I did turn a 955 Cat loader over and a backhoe. Quite interesting to say the...

    I've kept bees for several years now and can attest that they are interesting creatures. My style of beekeeping is a little different than the norm just like me. I believe everyone has to find what works for them. The advice above has been good...

    I'm quite fond of those old guns. I always considered them worth whatever I was willing to pay for them. Sadly most of the time someone else is willing to pay more than me.

    Wolfer replied to a thread Bedding in Gunsmithing Tips & Tricks
    I tend to bed every rifle I have anyway BUT, that Savage is pillar bedded from the factory and you probably won't see any difference in how it shoots. This is assuming it's a factory stock. These guns tend to shoot pretty good from the factory. ...

    My brother has the 45 colt with 5.5 barrel. I'm a Ruger man but I was very impressed with fit and finish on this gun. I didn't slug the barrel but the cylinders mic .452 and are pretty even. I have trouble seeing the factory sight as I do on most...

    The fur is not very prime either. I think it's too warm under the fridge. Bet the ones in the barn are haired up a lot better.

    My 34-57 took three deer this year with the Lee boolit in its natural form. Alloy was fairly soft, no harder than 50/50 +2%. Velocity in the 1800 range. I thought they were faster but after season I got a better day to run them over the crony and...

    Yes I'll think I'll have to keep working. At least thru another trapping season. Unless the price of mouse fur would go up. How many mice does it take to make a ladies full length coat?

    Well! I got home from work and emptied my trap, reset it and about the time I sat down I heard it go off. Another double! That makes 7 in the last couple days. All the same size, about 3/4 grown. How big are mouse litters? The little woman doesn't...

    When I was young and fur was a good price I sometimes ran a trap line. I learned to never be surprised at what you might catch but this is a first for me.

    I've never tried it. I've always felt it would lead the barrel. Perhaps if fit was good maybe not. I am a firm believer that you can have too much lube. I use LLA in rifles up to 1800 fps. Two very thin coats is accurate with no leading. Two...

    Some observations I've made with cast boolits and no data. When using fast powders and cast accuracy will usually be good when it's the right amount but will fall apart before you get to max pressure. Notice I said cast. I believe my method could...

    Most of my rifles that I shoot cast in all push a boolit of about 170 gr to 1500/1800 fps regardless of caliber. Me, my son and my neighbor have killed at least 10 deer, maybe more, a few coyotes and a bobcat. These loads are quite accurate, very...

    Lots of powders will work just fine in both of those calibers. I would forget about fillers of any kind with the type powders you will need. Bullseye or clays is hard to beat in 45 acp and makes a good accurate factory level load in the 45 colt....
