    MUSTANG replied to a thread Welcome aboard Wideners! in Our Town
    Went to their website. No powder, no primers, and limited Brass offerings. Mostly loaded ammunition and jacketed bullets. Wonder why they want to advertise on this site?

    I'd give them both 100 yards if you can place the shot in the vitals and resist taking an "iffy" shot. I have a lot of bear in my area but I don't shoot them. I let friends hunt them on my place and a few have been taken. Most are around 200-300...

    I didn't know that. It's been a couple of years since I saw him last, I don't get down that way as much as I used to. I've had him work on guns for me and several friends had him build them guns for them (outstanding accuracy and reliability). He's...

    Well, you asked so I'll tell you. I have owned at least seven or eight different 45-70's over the last ten years. A TC Encore 45-70 was one of them. I shoot nothing but light loads (think Trapdoor light) and find any light load will easily kill...

    NSB replied to a thread Pinched nerve in Our Town
    Google "Cervical Radiculopathy". It's a common disorder and can be treated. Sometimes surgery is required to stop the problem. Don't go to a chiropractor until you see a medical doctor first. Damage can be done to the nerve by manipulating the neck...

    I have no idea who you've been talking to about "all the hate", but it doesn't appear too many people "hate" them on here. Maybe you're just trying to strike up a conversation? You might have gotten some more interesting responses by asking who...

    When I got this gun I thought the trigger was "terrible". It was 3-3.5lbs. I called Lee Shaver (nice guy, he'll help you in any way he can). He asked what the trigger weight was and I told him. His response was, "that's a decent trigger, for a...

    This shouldn't be all that difficult. I have a Win/Miroku 1885 and putting a scope on it was quite simple and the forearm hanger that came on the gun worked quite well. The gun shoots great. It could be possible that you have some wood touching the...

    No I have not run these two loads through the chronograph. I am guessing they will go at about 1750 to 1900 FPS. I recommend the use of a dacron filler with these loads. The RCBS 165Sil moving at 1750fps would give a ~1150 Foot Pounds of Energy; and...

    Two observations from several years of playing with "Swaged HF Powder Coated" rifle boolits (.224 and .308). (1) Since the cast boolit is actually a "Donor Core"; any inclusions in the boolit (debris or air voids) will still be there and...

    WC844 and WC846 are very popular as they are/were Military Surplus; for the last 8 years they have been hard to get; only recently being back in the Military Surplus sales - but the prices are pretty high for MilSurp so not in use much currently. ...

    Just joking a bit. My spelling isn't all that great myself. Let us know how it shoots after you get the Lee Shaver trigger in.

    You should have bought the Miroku instead of the Mikuro. I think you got the Chinese knock-off. :kidding:
