    I have the orignal Leupold Tracker. It has helped me find several deer in the evening for other hunters. Great for quick scanning of a field up to 100 to 150 yds for pigs and deer. Lets you know there is something you need to check out with your...

    AGC is NOT a requirement if your using a properly powder coated bullet. Good point on feeding. Mine do feed fine but I have read many times others do not. Lee’s excellent 158-358 is a WFN and a good looking bullet properly alloyed would expand &...

    I saw a home made compression jig made out of a car jack and a 2x4 frame. I might try and spend a few minutes trying to make a meg shift one tomorrow. If not I have a buddy conning over that can drop the pin in while I compress it again. ...

    I messed around with my browning 800 express 22 Cal Springer pistol today. I wanted to lighten the trigger pull. I couldn’t find any YouTube videos about it but I found one of the Hatsan 25 which isn’t similar I found out after I got it apart. I...

    I have dumped more than a dozen with a 170 GD and LilGun at 1750 FPS. Shot a few with a 140 Speer HP from a 8” Colt with H110. Recent years the 358429 170g Keith bullet and BlueDot drop deer dead inside 75 easily. I shared your Skepticism. Until...

    Something else to remember. It’s generally recommended 20/400. Meaning 20 AFTER bullets reach 400. NOT JUST 20 min in oven. CW

    I made the mistake of ordering my first Springer and picking the fastest,meanest, one available at the time according to reviews in January of 2010. I bet I haven’t shot it 100 times Because of the crummy trigger. If I would had a nice one like...

    Yeah that’s probably why I’ve been procrastinating on buying the carnivore. I think cocking it is going to get boring real quick. I did do some online research on my Browning 800 express 22 caliber pistol and read in another forum to pull the action...

    I believe the key is to adjusting the second stage screw first and then watching where your sears touch in that open little window in the trigger housing and get them to the point where they’re just barely touching each other. I removed all the...

    If you can get that for three to $400 you’re stealing it! Good luck but keep us posted. I have a limited edition model 7600 Remington carbine. You’d be lucky to find one to begin with and if so I bet you it would be no less than 1200 bucks on up...
