    It's been awhile back but Hamilton Bowen had a good supply of take off Blackhawk barrels.

    I don't know how to put into word what I think about this. To say that I'm impressed would be an understatement!

    I have 3 30-06 rifles. All are quite accurate with the 311041 and 20 gr of 2400. 21 gr started to open groups up a little to about 3" at 100 yds. The 20 gr load kills deer remarkably well at 1800 fps so I just stayed with it.

    I have the Green mtn blank here. Been playing with my lathe a lot cutting threads on a 1" bolt. Since he lives at Sparta this has to be a weekend thing. Since my lathe is under a lean to outside decent weather would be nice but not mandatory.

    I absolutely have no need for a 375 H&H. I always have and still do want one. Maybe someday!

    This is just my opinion so take it for what it's worth. That some people shoot hunting suitable alloy well above 2000 fps with good results I have no doubt. What I think you'll find is these people have considerable experience. Getting good cast...

    In 97 my boss gave me a 25-06 for Christmas. Not having any dies, brass etc I bought 2 boxes of Remington cartridges for it. Couldn't wait to shoot it. Im pretty sure that was the last factory ammo purchase I made.

    About 17 yrs ago I fell into a deal that left me with a lifetime supply of jacketed bullets. Only in 25 cal, 7mm, and 30 cal. Since Ive always shot cast out of my pistols when I started loading for 8mm Mauser I just bought a mold after a couple...

    1 moa ( minute of angle) equals 1" @ 100 yds. Or 2" at 200 yds and 3" at 300 yds and so on. A 15" group at 300 yds would be 5 moa.

    My 336RC from 1966 is about .697 the sight covers up part of each hole so measured the head and subtracted from the total out to out. I suspect that .700 is a good measurement.

    Ive put whole cleaned squirrels in a crock pot on low until the meat fell off the bone. Dumped the whole mess into a spaghetti strainer and picked the bones out. Dumped the meat back into the crock pot and added chili fixens. Pretty darn good and...

    I have a small grizzley. Don't know the model off hand but it's probably the cheapest one they have or very close to it. It's not a milling machine but it does what I would expect of it. I do have a wen bench grinder that I use to grind my lathe...

    Bees are truly free rangers. They will work as far as they have to and they don't care who owns the land. Ive kept bees for several years now and have developed some pretty strong opinions on the subject. What works for someone else may not work...

    It's been quite awhile and a good many deer since I killed one with a jacketed bullet. Not one time in the last several years of using cast have I felt handicapped. I tend to hunt the thick stuff so range has never been an issue. Calibers have...

    The closest thing to a pointed boolit I've used for hunting is the Lee 339-220-1R. Cast 50/50 and run at around 1800 fps I would rate terminal performance as superb on the three deer and one coyote I've shot with it. While this boolit is very...

    That would be my wild guess also. What's not a wild guess is if you get wrinkled boolits either your mold is too cold, your lead is too cold or you have a smidgen of oil in your cavities. Just the fumes from oil/lube smoke will wrinkle your...

    I built a tool holder for my lantern style post that clamps to a 4-1/2" grinder. With a sanding disc on the grinder I can run it with the carrage and it works pretty good at cleaning up my poor lathe skills.

    Good to know. Where this was going was my buddies Ruger MKII varmint/target in 220 swift. My plan was/is to buy a green Mtn blank and contour to sporter dimension. Add a Boyd's classic sporter stock and it should be good to go. The new gun will...

    In the back of my mind I have stuck that button rifled barrels can be contoured after rifling but cut rifled and hammer forged barrels are best left alone. I could be wrong, I often am! Is this correct?

    As of right now we are planning on buying a green mountain blank and threading, contouring ourselves. The blanks are 25" long so I have room to mess up the threads a couple times. My old lathe is an 1894 Porter machine works. It has a little slop...
