    Your not the only one. I took mine down and talked to him as he worked on it as he lives not far from me. Learned a great deal and the gun shoots superb.

    Since you said you didn't want too heavy I'm assuming target stuff. In mine, I use 200gr and various powders for light target loads usually Promo/Red Dot.

    jonp replied to a thread How about Pancakes in Cookin' Recipe's
    Nothing like getting up, making a batch of batter for pancakes and then going outside to pick the berries right off the bush. I have wild blueberries in front of my camp that have always been there. I keep them cleaned up every year so they come...

    jonp replied to a thread How about Pancakes in Cookin' Recipe's
    Their bread recipe is hard to beat, too and not just the regular bread or the machine bread. Years ago I found a recipe on the bag for french bread that you made and cooked directly on the rack in the oven. Bread comes out nice and crispy on the...

    I always find these discussions interesting. Near where I am now the only thing to be worried about are dogs and most any pistol would suffice for that I think. Up in New England the ones to think about are moose and black bear although I can't...

    I'm sure it will as my cabin is a little bigger than yours and that stove heated it fine although you did have to get up in the middle of the night to feed it. The only reason I replaced it is I came across a used glass front stove and thought...

    Outpost75: That is quite interesting reading and I was looking for something like that a few weeks ago. I find it interesting that the 38sp and 45ACP are obsolete concerning proof loads and manufacturers use +P for the standard. That answers the...

    I load all types but mostly target 38sp. When I head to the top I use my Blackhawks. Lately as I have a few like my Masterpiece I wouldnt want to use higher stuff in I bought Starline Brass stamped "+P" to keep it seperate. To tell the truth there...

    Winchester 1886 45-90. Case hardened. Second up would be one I sold and continue to wish I had back. Winchester Pre-64 Model 70 in 300 H&H. Not because of what a sweet gun it is, certainly that, but because of the story. He was a Canadian and...

    That stove you have is a twin to the one I had in my hunting cabin on the Quebec/Vermont line. I replaced it with a small glass front but it did work good

    I use it all the time for short term lube. Makes a great mixture to neutralize blackpowder or corrosive ammo. I also cut it for drilling lube and use it to spray down saw blades for storage on the wall in the garage. The thing I do like about it...

    A Haddon Mill actually works pretty good. I bought one from my chainsaw guy and used it at camp to cut some flat beams for a porch. All you need is that, a chainsaw and a 2x4 or 2x6 http://www.haddontools.com/Chainsaw-Attachment.html

    I tried a piece of Rock Maple with the C Press I had it was quite sturdy. Should be a metal place near you somewhere or a welding shop you can get a small square from. Any place that does heavy equipment repair should have what you need.

    That's what I keep mine in. I also leave out the Acetone most times as I don't shoot shotgun much at all. I lube the firearm with Ballistol or 5w20 Full Synthetic. I'm also almost out so I'm glad someone brought this zombie thread back as a...
