    The best treatment for sleeping with it, Lectrofan! Not cheep, worth every penny and will drown out a box fan easily (caution, it will drown out your alarm clock if you crank it up as well).

    Days on end of open cab diesel farm tractors and loud music as a teenager. I started to really guard my ears in my mid 20s, but the damage was done. I've had it so long I dont even notice it, it does get aggravating not being able to understand...

    Of course there's an opioid crisis! What side of it you fall on probably determines how you feel about it, and what should be done about it.

    I'm shooting Mo bullet Co bullets with all the H110 that will fit under them. The only revolver in 327 I opened the throats on is my S&W 632.

    Howdy neighbor! Iv got a slew of 327s from the blackhawk to the gp100 and 101 sevens and Henry lever and shoot .313 cast in them all! If you ramp that.313 up, kick it in the rear hard, it will bump up, as long as you don't try to shoot too...

    I think the military is holding out for caseless ammo to be perfected. It does appear to be just around the corner and then all us reloaders will be just above a muzzleloader in firearms evolution! When caseless is perfected you will probably see a...

    It's been my experience with 22 ammo that (in general) the more you spend the more accuracy you get, if your gun agrees is the real test. CCI SV is generally very accurate, except for those pesky fliers (about 1/10), where as I think most bulk pack...

    You do know that the factory 327 FM rounds are primed with small rifle primers don't you? This is the reason all 327 guns have a stiffer hammer spring, drop that hammer spring very much and I bet you'll be getting misfires. If you want to do reloads...

    IMO if you want a revolver get the 327 Federal Magnum as its basically a rimmed 30 Carbine. My Henry 327 carbine lever may as well be a lever 30 carbine as well.
