    GhostHawk replied to a thread mountain lion in NH in Our Town
    Way I figure it the Eastern Mountain Lion may have gone into hiding for a century or so. But it has recently figured out that most of those humans are no longer carrying guns out east. So it is safe to go back to their old hunting grounds and...

    In my book Ugly is as Ugly does. A good looking gun that consistently has a problem loading the second or third round would be terminally ugly to me. I will admit that Hipoints won't win any constest based on good looks. But when it comes to...

    Mine has let me know that she prefers to be refered to as "Her Royal Magesty" and gets her nose out of joint if I treat her like a common gun. (She thinks Magnum is another word for Royalty) Some days when the shooting is going well she will...

    If you want fast you can use an instant pot pressure cooker to speed things up. Otherwise I go with a hambone and 1 to 2 lbs of Pinto's, soak overnight, rinse well, put in a slow cooker. Season as you see fit. Me I mostly leave mine pretty plain,...

    You don't. Manuals, what I consider "good" sources list starting and max loads, list velocity, and pressure. Data that does not come with such information simply is not trusted as much. The other answer is you don't, but experience has...

    I have shot the Lee .314 90 gr truncated cone sized to .311 over light loads of Red Dot with good results in .30-30. Seemed like the perfect rabbit/grouse load when deer hunting. Low noise. Rifle sighted for standard loads at 100 y shot dead to...

    I have avoided going to the dark side. Personally I prefer .20 or .22 for outdoors. .177 is fine for target or birds. But the bigger pellets put a lot more knockdown on furred critters.

    GhostHawk replied to a thread Breaking & Entering in Our Town
    I bought one of those lockpin "guns" from BudK just for the heck of it. With 10 minutes practice I could get in my front door deadbolt, and 2 of my cars. That being said if your safe has one of those round keys, then a locksmith is probably your...

    Look for Stick on wheel weights not clip on, also roof flashing, lead pipe, x-ray lead. All tends to be very close to pure and soft. I would trade a bunch of your COWW for soft.

    I do believe that's the same one I have, except mine is aluminum and 2 cavity, with no HP it weighs 275gr as cast, with an alloy of about 2.5%sn/2.5%sb. I load it over a charge of 21.5gr of 296, and it will penetrate any animal on the continent, I...
