    When is this happening? Is there a thread about it with more details? I'm also challenged by technology and dislike change.

    I have had him do action jobs on a few of my SA handguns, he does a good job on those. I'm another one who doesn't really care for his "engraving", but to each his own. He also does a lot of specialty caliber Contender and Encore barrels. His shop...

    Yes Rich. I just love this rifle. Squirrel, turkey, pig, yota dogs, prairie dogs. So many hunting classes are covered and so light and handy. Right up there with the best of my hunting purchases. I like your Fox squirrel too. Nice bushy tail...

    If you live by an Army post like that, which I do, you will find a lot of those at the Goodwill stores around, just not this time of year. Go when it starts getting warm and it'll be there cheap. This time of year it doesn't stay on the racks...

    I would keep that a .218 Bee and load it with rimfire duplicate cast loads. It works real well in my .22 Hornets, I prefer it to .22 LR now for small game hunting. Haven't tried it yet in my .218, but I will. Can't be much different from the...

    I like hunting them with downloaded centerfires as well. Favorite is the .22 Hornet, I use two grains of Bullseye and NOE 45 grain WFN. The .30-30 with the Lee Soup Can works well too.

    It is indeed a barrel nut. The 340 was a pretty innovative design Savage set up to use up .30 caliber machine gun barrels they made during WWII. That barrel nut system is very similar to the system they use on the Model 110 to this day. Barry,...

    So far, I've killed three with cast in .30 calibers, an Ideal 31141 in a .30-30, the Ranchdog 165 in a .308 and the NOE version of the 311041 in a .300 Savage. I've also used a .32 Special, .358 Winchester, .351 WSL, a .45-70 and a 7x57, plus...

    Like I said in the original post, I tried it on the gun and it didn't fit. This really looks too big to fit on the .410. The little snake charmer .410 I have is I believe the same gun though it says Taurus on it. The action on that one is tiny,...

    Gave some thought to this, yes, the shot was a lot farther than I normally have shot them with cast, but it wasn't outside what I think a good shooter with my cast deer loads could do. The ones I have shot with cast generally didn't run as far as...

    I was looking at one of these in a LGS the other day, they look like a good, robust little rifle. I think Arsmcor is the same operation that used to be called Squires Bingham and made .22 rifles and shotgun for imports for years. Atwoods sells...

    My walking around rifle is a Savage 219 in .22 Hornet, but with cast loads, my 219 in .22 Hornet would be good too. Might want to look fr a Savage 23 in .25-20 or .32-20. I was looking at a Ruger American in .300 Blackout a while back that...

    Congratulations. Our muzzle loader season here is over, but it's a great time to be out. For a long time, Kansas wouldn't allow scopes, now they do and then made archery season start the same day. It's still usually a ghost town out on the public...

    This also reminded me of something after shooting mostly cast on my range here at the house; a full house .30-06 is a rather formidable thing. That rifle is no lightweight, but holy cow it's loud and kicks hard.

    In many respects, I'm less of a purist than I used to be. When I got into bowhunting, I'd have never dreamed of even a compound, used a long bow, cedar arrows and Zwickey broadheads. Kansas legalized crossbows a few years ago and I broke down and...

    I love this! Not that much of a shotgunner, but I like the old ones and on the public land I hunt, it's mandated non-toxic shot for everything now. That pretty much relegates all the grandpa guns to wall hanger status unless you shoot Bismuth. ...

    Some deer hunts stand out in memory, for example, the buck I killed with cast in a .308 Savage 99 is probably my most perfect deer hunt ever, everything went right, he wasn't the biggest buck I ever took, but a pleasing hunt. Today is probably...
