    No_1 replied to a thread I could use it box! in Helping Hands
    The context of that phone conversation was no more boxes created/sponsored by you because you told a member who refused to forward or return a box which only contained junk (verified by another known member) he would "suffer" if he did not do as you...

    Hard times will sift the lot and separate the wheat from the chaff. I've had maybe 4 or 5 over the years that I could count on. And count myself fortunate. Still have one with me. Not as many as I would like but better than none.

    Truly a delight. I had a .30-30 with 20ga combo walk in my door a year ago. Guy had it to the pawn shop down the street and offered him 125$ IMO about 1/3 of its value. He asked if I was interested, and I said heck yes. He said how much? I...

    Mine slugged at .312. I got into a routine of shooting, come home and clean at least twice. I had better luck lifting old **** from the grooves using ATF (Dextron II or III was what was in my garage) Good luck with both the Lee .312 185 gc...

    What Ed said about Citric Acid. Tried it once, was hooked. I don't tumble at all. I am using dollar store fruit fresh. Have a lifetime supply the way I have been going. 1 teaspoon of citric acid, couple of drops of Dawn dish soap, an ice...

    Nice range. I live in town now and can’t have a set up like that. I do have about a 24 yd. section in the house I can shoot through though. I have to drive a short distance out of town to shoot further, so I envy your set up. Very nice!

    No, we can't kill cowards who do cruel things to helpless animals or even children. Just because someone deserves killing doesn't mean we should do it. Restraint is a price we pay for living in a civilized society even though it sometimes makes no...

    With the throat filled like that you may be good to go at those speeds wth air cooled ww with the checks on. I had good accuracy in my 35 whelen with air cooled ww at 1800 FPS. After that I had to heat treat it to maintain accuracy in the 2400 to...

    Anything below 50% COWW and I started seeing more "funky" shot. Fabric softener will work if you use enough of it. I'm estimating mind you, but I would guess I was in the area of 70% softener to 30 % water when I had my best run. At the time I...

    GhostHawk replied to a thread 25-06' what to do ? in Cast Boolits
    Maybe I'm off base here. But it seems to me that is an heirloom gun. Hang it on the wall. Tell every story about that gun and your dad to anyone who will listen. Pass it on to a grandson or daughter. You want a new toy, go ahead, feel free....

    We have a lot of acquaintances, some closer than others. But a true friend is the one you can call when your car breaks down 40 miles from anywhere. And when you hang up the phone you stop worrying. Because you KNOW he is coming, and won't get...

    I watched my dad live to 93. Last 5 years he was legally blind with Macular degeneration. He could with the aid of a walker get from bed to bathroom, from there to chair in living room, slowly. Frail, yes. His chief pastime was yelling at mom. ...

    This is a simple Kydex Sheath with a belt loop made from a leather belt. Sewed in the back it is cut to the same shape as the sheath. Then I used bank line zig zagging between the grommits to hold it all together. The copper wire in the shape of...

    Belt loop can be accomplished a couple of different ways. A couple of mine use a simple leather strap sewed together at the ends and attached to the sheath. One I used a longer length and doubled it back on itself for a belt loop/pocket clip. ...

    Sheridan Blue Streak, use only the power you need. 2-3 pumps will kill most birds with a head shot very dead very fast. Bunnies I did normally go up to 4 pumps. It had a definite sound to it, but it did not really sound like a gunshot. My...
