    Gotta second Popper in post #7. You can manage distance with velocity or with momentum, and the .223, .243, and .270 were all engineered to do it with velocity you don't get with cast. I'd suggest a .30-06 in the best rifle you can afford - the...

    Yep. This. The 10/22 for me is one of the "screwin' around" .22's, so as long as it spits out empties and feeds fulls, I pretty much don't care - I've got others to shoot when I'm concerned about making bughole groups. From a 10/22, if it holds...

    Just don't tell them it's a 9mm. Call it a .35 Whelan minus-P-minus and they'll be fine.[smilie=1:

    I think what the OP is effectively asking is: "If the author of a scientific paper that was widely accepted as correct came out with a new paper saying that it wasn't, or if another author came out with compellingly contradictory one, would you...

    My Dad's had some hand and shoulder re-hab issues, so I've been the trigger puller for a number of load experiments he's had cooking on a number of his BPCR's. Since black powder is a velocity limiter, your key to really long range is more bullet...

    Well, actually a King 2236 made after the Daisy takeover of Markham, but samey-same. Probably a clone of the Daisy No. 102 Model 36 from what I can piece together. First question: I've got a new set of leather seals coming from ebay, but the...

    Well, there ARE people who just want to take the **** thing out of the box and shoot it. No, assembling an AR from a pile of parts isn't hard. . .after a lot of study to know how to put which springs in which orientation in the right holes, a...

    Load yourself a small mountain of light wadcutter loads, go to the range, and forget that your revolver even has a single action setting. I'd bet that gun has a DA trigger of 10-12 pounds, in which case, it left the factory just like every other...

    Bigslug replied to a thread Tested 32ACP on hog in Cast Boolits
    There is some strange brew percolating there, make no mistake. Ranch Dog has been demonstrating that even his small diameter pocket pistol bullet designs are humane killers of hogs in the right conditions, and we THINK that this is down to large...

    Buying from the actual mil-spec factory has its perks and $850 is a good price. Since they've had over 50 years of practice with immediate feedback on what isn't right what they turn out is heavily checklisted before it gets kicked out the door and...
