    waksupi replied to a thread Deer scent attractants in Our Town
    No matter what you do, you will not fool the nose of a buck or bull. You just need to play the wind game with them, and hope you win. There is a particular bush in front of my cabin that I pee on daily. Been trying to kill it for years. The deer...

    Take a fired case, and slip a bullet in the neck. There should be slight resistance. That is what you are looking for. You aren't fitting a bullet to the bore, you need it to fit the throat.

    I concur 100%. Only took one deer and one antelope with the 22 cal Barnes X but have killed a bunch of deer with 6mm in a 243 Win. Everyone performed superbly. I did witness a large Bison bull killed by a young girl with a 6mm Rem use Barnes...

    Problem is, most times you won't get back your own meat. They do them in big batches. While you may have taken perfect field care of your deer, you are just as likely to get back some of Bubba's gut shot hairy mess.

    waksupi replied to a thread Bad lot of primers? in Cast Boolits
    When I get FTF in a batch of primers, I always check to see if I have a broken firing pin. Since you had misfires in two firearms, I'd say they are defective.

    A good lesson for everyone, especially businesses. So many businesses don't keep hard copy records anymore. Major computer disruption, all the info is gone. Stores can't even make change anymore with electricity out.

    I like Elko. I used to go the the National Cowboy Poets gathering down there. Great people and music. Large Basque population in the area.

    I just can't do it guys. Arthritis, bad back and legs are kicking my butt. I don't even heat up the shop on cold days, just feel too miserable to do it. I guess I'm a fair-weather builder now.

    Sticky bolts like that occur when the Rockwell hardness of the parts are too similar.

    My copy is also a leather cased book and in as-new condition. I didn't get the deal that Dale did, but under $10.00 at an antique as I recall.

    When you take it apart, wipe the parts down with a dryer sheet. Should take care of the problem. I have not noticed any problems with WC872 in my measure.
