    Is a Schi-Weenie a Chihuahua and Daschund mix? Oughta be a fun little girl to have around. I've been seeing an awful lot of doves lately, I've never really hunted them before, but I think I'll give it a try this year when the season opens up.

    It's good to have you back. Strokes are scary things. God was definitely watching over you, he still has plans for you.

    richhodg66 replied to a thread Dead rabbit in Our Town
    Well, I wasn't about to touch it. I went out of town for an overnight and when I got back, not a sign of it, so most likely a coyote found it and carried it off. We actually got enough rain this evening to do some good, it was crazy dry and...

    I also size all my 38/357 to .358. Good accuracy and no leading.

    ShooterAZ replied to a thread Opioid/heroin crisis? in Our Town
    It's not prevalent in my area, but it is here. I watched a young man's life go down the drain here at my work (not an employee). He had cut his hand with a Skilsaw and was prescribed opiate pain killers. Apparently he became addicted to them in just...

    Depends on what you are using it for. You could just add tin and be fine. If it's for handgun use I'd mix the lino in a ratio of 1/3. For rifle, a 1/1 ratio will give you "hardball" alloy.

    I have a Winchester M70 Featherweight in 270 Win. Not a short action, but it's plenty of gun for the wide open places I hunt. It's flat shooting, accurate, and pleasant to carry compared to my Ruger 77 300 Win Mag. Recoil is tolerable too. It wears...

    AbitNutz. sure would be interested in some images of the cartridge that you worked on. Sounds like you took on the challenge and came out the winner.

    Well after casting up a small pile yesterday in the kitchen I am going to load them up in some new brass thats been waiting to become cartridges. Did about half of them today and will finish up the other half tomorrow. No sense getting in a hurry to...

    POI shift happens (no pun intended), not only with centerfire cartridges but with rimfire as well. My suggestion would be to try a different powder. Try some Bullseye or Titegroup and see what happens.

    Another thumbs up for the Howard Leight Impact muffs for handgun shooting. For rifle, I use the Peltor Tactical 6. Both have served me well.

    I took Larry's advice on the Lee TL314-90 SWC a long time ago. Not only does it work, it's splendidly accurate. I also shoot thousands in my 30's sized .311 and .314 in my Mosin Nagant. Don't let case prep scare you away from this. In fact, I am...

    For my black powder stuff, I usually use Bore Butter in the winter and a 50/50 blend of beeswax and olive oil in the summer. I also discovered that the beeswax olive oil mix blends easily with Bore Butter. I have a tub of this that I have been using...

    It's good stuff for black powder shooting. We have an early muzzle loader season in September and there have been times Bore Butter is pretty much a liquid when it gets warm. Perhaps mixing it with some wax might firm it up some.

    I'll stay alert to it. We live out in the sticks, no high speed road where he could have been hit by a car. No poisons or chemicals around and nothing like that ever dies of old age and such in the wild. Just curious. I have one outside the...

    Interesting. Why do they shoot cormorants? Are they harmful in some way? I guess I don't know much about them.

    I went out to shoot some .38 Specials yesterday morning and there was a dead rabbit lying right on the 25 yard line which wasn't there the evening before. Near as I could tell, not a mark on it and otherwise seemed healthy, not starved, fur looked...

    We live in the country and some mice chewed wiring in the wife's car which had to be replaced. Had a big, friendly tom cat adopt us for a couple of years and that helped having him around. Nicest guy around to people and dogs, but lethal as all...
