    sounds like it might be time to find a new doctor. I've been through many doctors in my life and I refuse to return to one that will not listen to me or do what might be best for me. I know there are a whole bunch of organizations that are getting...

    I'm no hunting expert but I would think a 400 grain bullet moving at 1440 fps might just go though a bull elk long ways.

    I think that $1/lb is worth it, especially if you don't have any other local sources for bullet casting alloys.. indoor range stuff is usually nice and clean and if you got a scrap yard that is honest there should not be any problem getting #2 scrap...

    I think what you can get in a $200 scope from leupold or vortex are pretty darn good. I think you will have a very difficult time finding fault with a 2-7x vortex diamondback. I know recently leupold has been going though model changes but the vxII...

    and its only gone up $40 since this shortage started. funny thing about 8lb jugs of 2400, they actually load, for me anyway, right about 2400 rounds of ammo.
