    The BEST Spicy Pickled EGGS! I must begin with a fair warning. These can be addictive! So I take no responsibility for the pickled egg-eating habits that may develop once you have tried these delicious eggs. You have been warned. Please eat...

    How to Make Pickled Eggs The container used for the eggs should be one that can be closed or sealed tightly; glass canning jars work well. The eggs are to be completely covered with the pickling solution during storage. A quart-size canning jar...

    I was thinking about that too, but my concern would be that once I'm gone and the rifle changes hands someone with less knowledge of these old cast actions might try shooting some full house .218 Bee ammo in the rifle and destroy it. (There have...

    There is a bit of .40-63 info on the ASSRA forum ... One of my Pacific Ballards is in .40-90 and I use 9.3x74R brass to fire-form "shooter" brass for it. I anneal the case mouths...

    It was a while back now, but I added another Ballard "project rifle" to my single shot collection. It's re-stocked in maple and the barrel was sleeved into .22 calibre, but unfortunately it's in a centre-fire (haven't done a chamber cast yet, but...

    I bought a Remington 700 Tactical with the heavy round 16.5" barrel and I love it ... cheap to shoot and tons of fun! So far I've been loading 150 grain jacketed bullets with Winchester 296 to fire-form the brass that was made from shortened .223...

    Have a look at the reference photos on this website for the "smallbore" sights. I don't know if they would give you enough detail to work from to try and duplicate one, but I see that some of the dimensions are listed in a couple of the photos? ...

    My 8.15x46R is an "H. Speeman in Neuss" Schuetzen. Still haven't shot it enough to really get onto it yet. I just know that it has the lightest set trigger of any rifle I've owned yet (and I've had a bunch of set trigger guns!). This one will...

    Out here in Western BC we have "ruffies", Blue Grouse (Dusky Grouse), Sharptails, and Spruce Grouse. Blues are much bigger birds and I've usually roasted them whole with a pan full of mixed veggies. Ruffies (and Sharpies) tend to be fairly small...

    I can't help but cry a little bit when I see a lovely old cast iron muffin pan and a cornbread skillet relegated to casting ingots ... I still cook with my cast iron pans and use actual ingot moulds to make ingots.
