    There is a reason we call it Bozone.

    Thanks guys! I think I only have one that works loose as well. I have been gravitating to die brands with longer bodies as well as I add calibers just to allieviate the issue. Most of my Lee dies are from the ‘90’s Three44’s

    If you tell them you are reporting a missing gun to BATF, they tend to find them very quickly.

    waksupi started a thread Our fall shoot in Our Town
    Part 1 & 2. A fun shoot, although a bit cold. We did have a truck drive off the side of the narrow bridge to the site, that took some team effort to get back on the road again! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MSkduzzpqiY ...

    Speaking of the Lnl bushings I have some issues with them working loose. Maybe a fatter O ring? Many of my dies are Lee and they are short bodied. Between the bushing and the thick aluminum head of the press it makes for an interesting set...

    opos, If I was to pick a rifle to load for under such circumstances ... no solid data, it would be the 1917. Built like a tank! Best regards Three44s

    Never used a string or another shooter. Had a few case head separations in an old takedown Savage 99 in 250 Savage due to too much head space. But I started in '75 so literature was pretty progressed by then. I had a spat of trouble with some...

    sixshot replied to a thread Found the Bullet in Hunting with CB's
    Lamar, I would say it was above average for fat but not as much as yours. I think the doe mule deer & doe antelope I shot in Utah last month were both fatter but they were living the good life, right in some farmers field pretty much year round. I...

    Get rid of the BB, and go to moose milk. If concerned about leaving it loaded for a long period, soak the patches in moose milk, then let dry. BB causes terrible fouling in most conditions, and is totally unworkable in cold weather shooting.

    Well I skinned my buck today & found the bullet! I think this might be the first cast bullet I've ever found although I must admit I quit looking a long time ago because they always went out the other side. Three things really surprised me about...

    That's why a safety harness is needed. A cousin was hunting with my brother, forgot his harness. Put a rope around his waist. My brother found him hanging from the tree when he came back. Did't hit the ground, but the rope was still darned...

    I have not tried the Hornady 174's in mine yet, but I did procure some recently and will try them soon. I have been using the Speer 150 gr. HCSP with pretty good luck. I have gotten them as tight as 1.5" at 100 yds for 5 shots, but the norm is...

    The bullet was a Miha 245 gr cast HP that I powder coated. This is the second buck I've taken using this bullet with 10 grs of Unique, the other buck was 94 yds & I shot him through both lungs with an exit & he took about one step & dropped. I'll...

    My buddy hasn't got one yet but he will. He's a very fine shot with that Ruger 45. A few years back he hunted with me & we both took cow elk. I ran a buck his way this morning but it was cruising pretty fast & he didn't get a shot off. If you look...

    I personally believe that most of it is "snake oil". However, I do believe in keeping clean. That means a shower with some sort of non-perfumed soap when going hunting. If one is out and about for a few days without shower facilities, wash up the...

    That's related to how hunting season is closed on the rez. They go around and collect all the window cranks from the pickups.

    Since you are not shipping from an FFL it could go directly to any California FFL. Your choice, but there are lots of Cowboy shooters in Cali, more than anywhere else.
