    Ok I know this is an older post. Why use the white pipe over the black? Can't find 4" white here, lots of black pipe. Thanks for you replies.

    First off, I'm a ladle guy myself, but I don't stand. Find a low enough table so you can sit comfortably and cast for at least half an hour. A good half hour session will get you plenty of cast to play with. I can not speak to PC as I have not...

    I had similar issue when I went too low with Red Dot. I did not have the chamber carbon buildup. But the first 8 rounds all had cases that were soot halfway back. Went up half a grain and no more sooty cases. Yes you can go too low...

    Grandpa taught me early to walk into a patch of woods (preferably with corn field close) Find a comfortable spot, and take a 10 min nap. When you wake up don't move. Use your eyes and ears to locate active squirrels. Slowly slowly scan the area. ...

    Well I agree with you, and I don't. There is a difference between a rifled shotgun barrel, shooting shotgun slugs. And a .44mag barrel designed to shoot essentially a center fire rifle. With resulting higher pressures and speeds. Which...

    To be honest I think you are skating around the edge of the rules here. If a gamewarden ever looked down the barrel and saw rifling where he was expecting smoothbore I suspect you'd be in trouble. Essentially, if I am reading this right, you...

    I’ve seen a lot of good reviews on the p17 lately. I’m not familiar with either one, but those that had the p17 seemed to be happy with it for the price. I believe the reviews I saw were on the Gta site?

    The guns that I have sold over the years are few in number, and all had something that made them totally unloved by me. Like the absolutely sweet Brazilian made .410 sxs, nice wood, awesome hand checkering. But the left barrel shot 2 feet high...

    Dunno about .327 but my .32sw longs shoot great out of my Ruger NM SS. Could not ask for any better. And with 90 gr cast over 2 grains of Red Dot they truly are a pleasure to shoot. Easy on hands/wrists and ears.
