    Gray and rainy all day in central North Carolina, but not too awfully cold. 50s and 60s.. Cold front coming soon. We don't get much snow here and we're not about to complain about that either.. It usually doesn't get really cold here until mid...

    The LBT WFN and LBT WFNGC are your best choices. No need for expansion or HPs, they make excellent wound channels and pass throughs. Have you tried Montana Bullet Works for these? I second the softer alloy and Veral's soft blue lube from...

    Shooting 45ACP a lot, I don't have time nor the patients to tumble brass. Using Citric Acid and a bit of Dawn soap in hot water, rinse real good and then lay the Brass out to dry thoroughly works great and saves me time. I process about 500-1000...

    I have magpul 30s and lancer 20s for 300 AAC mostly what I use are the Remington 220 subs and they all work. I don't use anything except store bought ammo in a rifle that stays at the ready for home defense.

    I tried growing music garlic in raised beds a few years, garlic NEEDS very fertile soil, the more organic material you put in the soil, mulch, compost, manure, the more it likes it. The final year I thought would be the most successful, I had great...

    I too have one of the three digit prefix New Vaquero models. Ruger chambered these in 45 ACP, and they are safely rated to 45 ACP+P 23,000psi, which means the 45 Colt cylinder is also safe to this level due to the same thickness cylinder walls in...

    I never clean the bore and then hunt. If I have to or need to clean the bore, I shoot it at least one fouling shot. Mine will hit a guitar pick first shot cold barrel at 200yds so I know better than mess with that.
