    it would be a toss up. both ballistic cast molds One is a 450 lfngc and the other is a 480 lfn gas check. they have been hands down the best bullets in my 500 linebaughs and my 50ak. Thing is though I don't know if bc is still in business.

    I love my 696. Its not for sale for any amount. Ive had gp100s in 357. Good stout gun but just not as smooth or classy as a smith. I also had one of those rossi 5 shots 44 specials. It was a combo of the worse of both guns. Sloppy like a ruger and...

    All my #1s have gotten leupold 1x4s and 2x7s. Both of those scopes have a bit better eye relief then average. Most scopes will work until you crank them up to over about 6x then eye relief gets sketchy.

    Had to run 60 miles yesterday to see the doctor. I saw a powerstroke sitting in the bar parking lot near my home and it got me thinking so I paid attention up and back. I saw 8 diesel trucks 3 power strokes 3 duramaxs and 2 dodges. Out of 8 of them...

    Diesel is higher then anything up here and not by a small margin. Usually between 20 and 50 cents a gallon higher. At least higher then 93. I haven't priced avgas in years so I don't know but do know it used to be very expensive.

    alloys really don't separate. To separate an alloy would be like taking the iron out of steel. You might loose a tiny bit of tin do to oxidation but its pretty small in the big picture. Probably not enough to measure.

    I made up a pile of it. Id say across the board about all my loads shot a bit better with the 460 brass and cci350s. It also helps during primer shortages to have brass that can be loaded with either small or large primers.

    I think its more of a matter of so many people went and bought guns because the feared the democrats that the market has gotten slow now. Look at about every manufacture and you will find rebates going on and in some cases so BIG rebates. Heck you...

    yup ive tried the making brass out of 06 brass myself. I guess if I was put against the wall with no other way to shoot it it could be done but I have enough brass to probably last my lifetime.

    why not just buy a dodge with a hemi, a chev with 6.2 or a ford with 5.8. All pretty much bullet proof motors. Sure the diesels make a bit more power but the modern gas motors will tow more then enough to get you in trouble on the road. Get just as...
