    It's personal, to a point, but I'd opt for a 10. Loaded to it's potential, it's wicked. My story is only anecdotal, but while hunting and tracking a wounded hog (300# or so )<wounded by a poor shot with a .44 mag>, I was charged - straight on -...

    Do you need to FL size the brass shotshell? I'd be fine with no crimping, as noted above, but have wondered about the sizing of the shell body.

    Welcome aboard. Love to hear how folks do various things to their rifles. I like the mount.

    725 replied to a thread Sighting in in Our Town
    Many don't know the craft. Many won't ask for help. And, ........ there are a few guns that just won't get sighted in because of mechanical issues (loose scope mounts, mixed ammo type, improper eye relief - parallax, etc). Can't tell you how...

    Some time ago I bought two mold halves from one of our castboolits brothers. Generally dimensioned for a .375, it was, as advertised, a basket case. -- Just what I was looking for! :) After making the sprue plate, drilling and setting alignment...

    Got some torn ligaments on my strong side wrist. I still manage to shoot as good as before (for whatever that's worth :) ) It just hurts and sometimes I drop stuff.

    I'm going to make a trip to the LGS and put the question to them. They have a competent smith at their beck & call. Kind of feel like I should have a spare or two - just in case.

    Well done. That'll be taste :) I do have a question: What has to be done to a Marlin 336 to convert it to a .38-55? Are there particular model 336's required or can a .30-30 / ..35 Rem be used? It sounds very interesting. 725

    Got me? I just think .22 Hornets shoot the smaller bullet. I've never had one, and the last thing I need is to load for another caliber. :)

    I like the short stocks. Perfect when I'm dressed up like the Michelan Man in winter. I replaced the original sights with the Williams "Fire Sights". Rear peep and a fiberoptic front. A real humdinger.

    I will disagree with the statements that only Swiss and OE by Goex are the only two modern BP's that will deliver great accuracy and shoot clean. About 4-5 years ago I purchased a 10Lb lot of KIK powder, lot 3910. It shot better than any other...
