    Are you mad? That short neck? Absolutely not. 30-30, 30-40, 35 Krag, 45-70. All far better cast boolit cartridges than that short, fat, balding, objectionable cartridge. In fact, 35 Rem is a better cast boolit cartridge than the 358 Abomination.

    I donít have one, but I think 35 Whelen is about the perfect elk cartridge. I do have a 35 Krag single shot and that can be loaded to lower 35 Whelen territory.

    RPRNY replied to a thread Opioid/heroin crisis? in Our Town
    It seems perfectly logical to me that if cannabids are the first port of call for treatment, rather than opioids, that will, over time, profoundly reduce opioid addiction, and is certainly a desirable outcome. As far as I know, while habituation can...

    Going to have to ask for some substantiation for this claim because the chemistry simply isnít there. The addictive properties of opioids simply do not allow for someone addicted to switch to or substitute canbabids. The chemical properties of the...

    Repeating it will not make it true. The socio-economic conditions that Obamaís War on Working Americans brought an opioid abuse problem to crisis levels in the Ohio River Valkey, Appalachia, and the Upper Midwest.

    Your understanding is incorrect. Abuse of prescription opioids has existed since they became available. The crisis ensues from the socio-economic conditions created by the Obama Regime.

    Obamunism: the Gift that Keeps on Giving. Eight years of hard left anti-manufacturing and anti-fossil energy policy, toadying to foreign trade partners, and scorn for communities outside the coastal bubbles played a large part in the rapid...

    Excellent advice above. The 7mm 08 is the cartridge that the 308 should have been in any event. An excellent choice. Big fan of the Swede, but for elk at 400 yards, prefer the heavier bullets of the 27 - 28 caliber rounds. And if shaving 5 oz off...

    I would choose .40 S&W because I already have pistols in that smallest of acceptable calibers and I do not use the teeny-tiny 9mm europellet beloved of Nazis, limp wristed handwringing, panty-waisted continentals, and those suffering from wasting...

    Shot SASS yesterday. 27 rounds of shotgun. I shoot 20 ga, 2 1/2 drams OE 2fg 7/8oz shot, over powder card wad, fiber cushion wads at about 0.5" and an over shot card in a brass Magtech hull. It was bloody hot, like 95 F, and several stages near...

    The Savage Mark II TR is excellent value for money. Great trigger. $30 worth of stiff bottom metal and aluminum pillar to allow solid torquing down of the action will deliver consistent sub-MOA 5 shot groups with the right ammo. And that need not...

    #1 - #4 Buck is great stuff. The heavy turkey loads - bismuth and tungsten will work well at distance if they will pattern for you, and Hevi Shot does a coyote load. But anything #2 lead and bigger that will pattern decently for you will be quite...

    Yes, plants can absorb heavy metals. However, Greger is way off the mark in ascribing lead pollution in China to coal fired power plants. While in decades past, older unscrubbed (ie not equipped with filtration equipment) coal fired power plants in...

    So, if you are starting with a 7.92x57, no problem. Suggest JES Rebore. Jesse will bore it out to your desired twist, probably 1:14 for mainly cast, and recrown it for you. For cast loads, you can be guided by 358 Win and work up slightly. I have...
