    I agree with Bookworm. I have no problems getting moa and better accuracy with Ben's Red or BLL at 2500 fps. in my .308. Even with unweighed and just visual sorted boolits it stays well under 1.5" moa. @ 110 yds. I can do the same thing with my ...

    The problem with preps is once they are gone growing really is your only option. Unless you can trade a skill, knowledge, other materials for food, which I'm all in favor of. Just remember if you bug out, either alone or with a very small...

    I do that very thing with cphp for a couple of airguns. I just use the end of a plastic ball point pen to flare the hollowpoint a bit and had a definite increase in accuracy. Crosman piranahs don't seem to need this in my airguns, but the premier...

    I'm with nobade. See what you have first. Then if you have the H&R long leade, consider trying .360DW brass rather than reaming. I have a .357 mag and mine takes full length .360 brass without trimming. And I set my cast boolits out farther...

    I sat rubbing my hands with Glee as I melted down the 6.5 lb score my wife brought home for 11$. That stuff was cast in a machine, lived a long full life. Now it gets added to a pot of lead and lives again as a shiny cast boolit. Nope, no...

    I have been known to slip 2 slugs into the bore in order to get far enough in some cases. My .357 handi rifle was one. Bored long enough to accept untrimmed .360dw brass and still I have to crimp in the top lube groove to get close to the...

    .223 barrel alone is worth that. .243's have a somewhat rocky reputation. I think mostly they don't like the longer bigger bullets. Stick to 80's and smaller and do a good load workup and you should be fine. Receivers alone are 70-90 for SB2...

    BLL should dry to the touch in just two hours. It's a good indicator to judge if you're using too much.

    Love those "ribs", stores around here used to call them "country style" but now they call them loin chops or something similar. Always cheap, always good. Just look a little funny but that's OK with me!

    Thanks for re-posting that, pietro. I've noticed he hasn't been posting much in the past several weeks but hoped he was just busy. Hope you don't mind that I re-posted over on the Winchester Collectors' forum, he's going to be missed there as well.
