    I shoot more 9mm ammo then every other caliber combined. Its a no brainer. 3-4 grains of powder a primer and a free bullets. Just as cheap as what 22 shells go for IF you can find them. much more fun to shoot to boot.

    you are correct and I made a mistake in that it is for only residences. I was mistaking elk for bear when I said that. I have a buddy that lives in elk country down state and he told me its insane to even bother trying to hunt them without a guide....

    been using a star so long now that the lymans and rcbs sizers are just old bad dreams. Yes they will all size equally well but a star is probably 4 times faster.

    put modern optics on it if your going to hunt with it. Its just not worth taking the chance that some old scope looses its seal or fails in any way. Add to that that optical glass and coatings have come along ways since the 60s and 70s. Your Elite...

    me either and find it VERY doubtful that the lead melted. Ive recovered cast 223 bullets from an ar15 shot into a snow bank at 2800 fps and they showed no sign of melting the base. Add to that the alloy I use is hard so it would melt easier then a...
