    I think it's a great idea. The 32 H&R is a modern equivalent of an ideal midbore English Rook Rifle round. It can be loaded for near silence with hollow base wadcutters and up to near 32-20 performance. Wonderful woods walking rifle round. My...

    I made several treks down there and got Bullseye and 2400 during the Obama drought.

    The restored frontier fort in Burnet is Fort Croghan. There is an eagle nest in trees west of 1431 where it nears the Colorado River just south of Kingsland. Longhorn Cavern State Park is nearby. Killeen gun shops I've visited are Action Pawn, Guns...

    Tho only MagnaPort experience I have is with a 6 1/2" M-29. In only a few shots, my front sight was sooted over and the ramp accumulated a coating of deposited lead, which was a pain to remove. The ports also had a lot of lead build up, which was...

    Nueces replied to a thread Marlin 1894 to???? in Leverguns
    If you go the rebarrel route, another idea would be to make it a 357-44 Bain & Davis, just the 44 case with a short neck to 357. No action mods required and, with 160 grain bullets, you could approach standard 30-30 ballistics in a shorter carbine...

    She looks like a 1940s Ella Raines to me. She also looks like a 1940s version of my mother.

    As a lad in the South Texas border country, our favorite method against the ubiquitous red ant beds was to equip with a BB gun, handful of the old red top kitchen matches and a 6 ounce Coke bottle of gasoline. Couple of ounces of gas down the ant...

    I would use a pair of small, side cutting wire cutters, as used in circuit board manufacture. Take, say, 3 snips, then tumble the shot all together to push down the remaining sprue. Some folks will say to put the box of balls in your car for a week,...

    'Dillos are known carriers of leprosy. If you catch one, hold it by the tail at arm's length until his bladder is empty. Stinky! They used to be ubiquitous in central Texas, but I don't see many any more. Glad to hear they may have just moved to...

    Nueces replied to a thread Remington 788 in Factory Rifles
    Yeah, that's part of the fun. I found two on ebay and, on a hunch, another in my LGS parts bin. Also got a few nice mags for the Savage 23B 25-20. It did take some months and I let some overpriced ones go. My 788 had been smithed and refinished...

    For years, a 788 in 30-30 has been a valued rifle for cast bullet competition. Check out the forum of the Cast Bullet Association for a history.
