    GhostHawk replied to a thread Subject: Who Am I? in Our Town
    Think of yourself as a piece of luggage on a round the world trip. Every stop someone is going to slap labels on you. But those labels only describe the exterior and who you belong to, and where you are going. They do not define what is within....

    GhostHawk replied to a thread Think about it in Our Chapel
    Amen! He has never led me wrong yet. He has never asked me to hurt anyone, or do anything that will cause pain and suffering. As a a result I trust him, believe what he tells me. He tells me my sins have been forgiven. That my name has been...

    Mine was a .410 bolt action shotgun, mossberg. Had interchangeable screw on chokes. I bought it as a freshman in collage. Worked fine on close range cottontails. But it was dismal on everything else. I still have it, it is cleaned, oiled. It...

    You can also mix it half and half with pure lead or range scrap for low speed pistol bullets. They won't be as hard, can't be pushed as hard, but it doubles how many you can get. As said above straight up for faster rifle bullets. Fact is the...

    Find yourself a punch that will do the correct size for .410 to make wads. Then try a milk jug (Plastic) A milk Jug (waxed paper, thickest) and some of the thin cardboard that package pop cans in 12 and 24 packs. See which one does the trick....

    GhostHawk replied to a thread Spreading her ashes in Our Chapel
    I lost both my parents last year. They had a lot at the local cemetary. Put up a marker that looks like a little stone house. 8 spaces for urns, the urn is sealed into place with a stone cut from the marker. And a brass plaque that tells the tale. ...

    I agree that hulls should have a notation if they are straight walled and tapered. Ideall both hulls and wads would be cross indexed. If you buy these hulls you want X or Y wads. This would make life a LOT easier for someone just getting started....

    I'm using 3 grains of Red Dot but I like my loads on the milder side. I have loaded them up as far as 4.5 grains with no issues, good accuracy in carbines and a handi rifle stubb barrel I have.

    I have 4 Remington "Hammer forge" blades that still have the forge marks on the blade surface. I did exactly what w5pv said, lopped off some 3.5 inches off the end. It originally had the old style butcher knife profile where the blade was twice...

    ATF with very tight patch's, followed by dry, then a very wet one. Let it soak for 4-8 hours. Repeat. When you think it is getting close go shoot 20 rounds through it and clean again. I had a pair of mosin's with very dark bores, very little...

    I agree with Reddog81. Stick with what JM Browning designed it for. There are extended barrels for 1911's. At one point I thought about a 12" barrel. But, you gain no sight distance. You can't put a front sight on the barrel and have it go...
