    If you ever saw a photo of Jeff's "Man cave" that he built below his house, there was one whole wall and part of another that was nothing but leverguns, dozens and dozens of them. I am sure a lot of these will be listed on GB pretty soon.

    Pressman, You nailed it. I would have expounded more initially but thought it may be too ancient. I have contacted Redding. Spoke at length with Jay Davis . A very accomodating gentleman. He sent to me copies of what little he had. My eyes are...

    Never let Politics get in your way of friends, we all put up with each others views. They are more conservative then they realize, but I'm not telling them that. We have more in common than not in common. They are getting a little edgy when I...

    My first buck was a heart shot, he dropped SO fast where he was standing he bounced when he hit the ground. Then he stuck his head up and looked around trying to figure out what that loud noise was. If I had a broadside shot with a 73, I would...

    They tell me I am going to have to stay on them. I view Xarelto as good insurance against a stroke. I just have to be careful about getting cut even the slightest knuckle ding will bleed quite a long time.

    I sold my Kriss Vector. But When I first got it the Company Kriss Offered a Custom Storm Case made by Pelican. It wasn't cheap to say the least but is was compact and true to Pelican made like a tank. It has handles plus a set of Caster Wheels...

    DougGuy replied to a thread H-110 and W296 in Reloading Equipment
    They both are made in the same plant, they are the exact same powder, they are badged and packaged differently. Hodgdon markets H110, Winchester markets W296. These are for retail, but if you buy in bulk, they have the same number. Any variations...

    I just got done explaining this fitment into the throats in triplebeard's thread, yes you get the best accuracy when the bearing surfaces/sides/front driving band of the boolit is centered by the throat. However... Don't assign the priority to...

    My gunsmith sez he used to use it back in the day for midrange 38 spl and match 45 acp loads. Looking at the old manuals it seems to be around between 231/HP38 and Unique or 630. I bought two lb when they announced it would be discontinued, and I've...
