    I load what I think I'm going to use. I single load rifle ammo. I load back up what I shoot up. That way I always have ammo ready to go. Shiloh

    Do a search. I got a few pieces of brass, 25-20 and 32-20 brass from someone here at castboolits 7 or so years ago. He cast and loaded for both. I delete messages after a while so it is gone. Shiloh

    Gimmicks, gewgaws, bells and whistles. A gadget made to be sold as the next best thing. Tried it at a gun show years ago and didn't like the feel. The eight ball has worked for me for decades. Shiloh

    Shiloh replied to a thread 4227 in 30-30 in Cast Boolits
    Been looking for data in the 30-30 with 4227 and found this thread. 17.5 gr. behind a 311041 sized at .310 gives 1640 fps. 35.6 Ex Spread, and 12.6 St. Dev. Handy Rifle. Accuracy limited by the horrendously bad trigger. 18.0 gr. behind the same...

We need somebody/something to keep the government (cops and bureaucrats too) HONEST (by non government oversight).

Every "freedom" (latitude) given to government is a loophole in the rule of law. Every loophole in the rule of law is another hole in our freedom. When they even obey the law that is. Too often government seems to feel itself above the law.

We forgot to take out the trash in 2012, but 2016 was a charm! YESSS!
