    I used Neatsfoot Oil for years. In this century I have discovered Hornady One Shot and that is all I use now. I've tried others but One Shot is easy to clean off.

    I took a Stevens 311 and cut the barrels off to 20" with the intention of building a double rifle style gun. The gun came out looking good but it didn't shoot very well and the Stevens design has some major design flaws that make it difficult to...

    I think you're on the right track on the attached plastic wad idea. Maybe even making it hollow base so it will expand to fill the bore for a better gas seal. I think old man Brenneke was way ahead of his time. He even gives out key chains. ...

    When you consider just how powerful a 1 oz (437gr) slug that is traveling at 1300 fps is and compare it to other calibers you will surprised, like I was, just how a 12 ga stacks up against a .45-70 or .375 H&H or even a .458 Win Mag. The Taylor...

    Never thought of that, I'll have to practice up on my fence post shooting, if I could just see one at 61 yds! Dick

    LB: I've been curious about those DGS slugs. I was given 5 of them by the outfit that originally made them from Italy at the SHOT Show a few years ago. They are identical to the DGS Slugs that BPI sells now but the wads are Red. AT Front Sight...

    My Standard Round Ball Load is also my Standard Trap Load. It is an old style AA hull with 20 gr of Green Dot, Win 209 and WAA12 wad with either 1 1/8 oz of shot, or a .662 round ball with a 1/4" felt wad or 9 00 balls. The shot column is the...

    Have you seen the "Ravin Crossbow?" They advertise 3" groups at 100 yards! which for a Crossbow is unheard of. I'm pretty sure we can get that good with our Smooth Bore Shotguns, we just have to find the right projectile. The problem with...

    Sheesh: the gun weighs 9.25 lbs empty. When full it is more like 11-12 lbs. It doesn't kick very much at all. Randy

    I will shoot my 20" Mossberg at 100 yards with Federal Low Recoil Slugs off the bench and see what it does. I got 2.5" at 50 yards offhand so maybe there's more there that I just don't know about? Really the good thing about these shotguns is...

    Ditto on the above. For what you want to do that bullet will work just fine. The moulds are inexpensive and work well. Hard to argue with all that. Randy

    Reloading on a progressive loader is pretty much the same thing as running a Turret Lathe. The end result is a completed part. The rule in the machine shop for producing parts is, "Find out what works,,, and do that." The same holds true for...

    I got to play with another one of these guns at an LGS the other day. I got to really look at it close, and fondle it. The reason for the short stroking is the position of the fore end in relation to the Pistol grip. It is closer than a...

    That 2.5" group Faustus shot was pretty good in my estimation. The problem you run into is not so much the gun but the shape and consistency of the projectiles. But we have to keep in mind, these are shotguns and not rifles. We've talked about...

    I have some Federal .410 slugs that are 125 gr and running 1775 fps! That is above most .357 Magnum loads. I also have a bunch of Thug Slugs I got from BPI that are 125 gr with attached wads so they should be relatively accurate. I have a...

    As I understand it, the original 1892's had .310 bores. I have two, a 24" and a 28". When I had them relined due to bad chamber pits, we used .310 liners. They both do well with .312-.313 sizes. The original barrels may have been eroded by the...
