    I have to agree with the SKS. Mine is a yugo with the grenade launcher, ladder sights. Biggest drawback is iron sights and old eyes. Don't own an AR of any kind. But I have a pair of Hipoint Carbines that do very well with cast. The best of...

    I have not sold many guns, the few I did sell I was glad to see gone. My regrets are more along the line of back in the 70's and 80's why oh why was I not loading up on M1 Garands, M1Carbines, K98's, etc. I had a nice M1 carbine with folding...

    No, it has to be heated with the Alox. Once all melted together I combine with the floor wax/mineral spirits and all is good. I love what it does for bores, it also makes a non sticky film on the surface of boolits. Which is also a nice side...

    I'm with Teddie. I grew up watching my dad walk out into the south 40, take a knee, remove his hat, and have a conversation with his Lord. Drives my wife nuts when I pray for her out loud. But it works. Not long ago I felt like I was hanging...

    Personally inside the house I favor birdshot. For one reason, I don't have to worry about a buckshot making it through a wall and killing family members in the next room. My house is 5/8ths sheetrock over plaster and lathe. Outside, I'd be...

    Right back at ya jsn. Fast shipping, great packing job and molds exactly as described. Both arrived in original boxes with instructions and handles. Nice fast clean transaction with no issues of any kind. I'd buy from you again in a heartbeat.

    Cornmeal here also. I bought a container for buffer for buckshot loads so it is always handy. I've had zero problems with cornmeal in cases or barrels. It all seems to go out in the blast. Biodegradeable, and food for critters that find it. I...

    I've shot it in .45acp, worked fine but eventually found it was easier to just keep using the powder measure I have setup for Red Dot. I loaded 100 rounds with it, had no issues at all. Still have most of a pound. There is data out there for...

    No most don't get it. I gave up trying to convert people a long time ago. You want to shoot jacketed, ok, its your money. You don't want to take the time to learn to reload safely, ok, again its your money. You think every cast boolit will...

    My Yugo SKS with the grenade launcher and ladder sights likes them big and long. So I mostly feed her the Lee 185 gr gas checked lubed with BLL, over light loads of IMR 4895. She was hitting quarter sized pieces of clay pigeon at 50 which is all I...

    R-pod, I own a 189 which instead of a dinette has a couch facing the TV at the rear. Queen sized bed, bit of a hassle to make. But 2 walmart sleeping bags zipped together works well. 3000 lbs is what mine weighed empty. Stash it full of...

    I grew up in a shotgun + slug only hunting zone. I pretty quickly learned that if I could not put 5 shots into a paper plate at 50 yards and cover them with a standard coffee cup they were not going hunting with me. I used a lot of Federal slugs,...

    The ones I killed were all done with .22lr. These days I would likely use a .32sw long. A because they are reloadable. B they won't overpenitrate. C they will go far enough if you line the shot up right. My first try the pig in question had...
