    Considering that #1's will self stack. Pour a string of 9 of them into a 12 gauge shell and it gives you perfect 3 stacks of 3. So I have a hard time believing that .310 is "better" at stacking. It might be better in other area's. But that is not...

    If all else fails a private investigator often has access to data not easily found on the web. In my experience their resources can be better than normal LE/government sources. Phone number search may be a dead end due to the growing number of folks...

    Very interesting and quite helpful BUT as others have noted the samples for some categories are likely too small to give accurate data. Shot placement will always be key but when using real shootings that's hard to take into consideration. Funny how...

    GhostHawk replied to a thread Help me deside in Hunting with CB's
    I like the 310 also, it does very well for me accuracy wise. It does however eat up the lead. I not long ago also picked up a 200 gr and 218 gr, both of which shoot great in my .44mag handi rifles but have not yet been tested in the big...

    My guess is they are probably too big. Most cell phones, laptops have enough megapixels that pictures are coming out in the 3500 x pixel range. I use a small graphics program called Irfan view. Load the picture, go to image, resize/resample,...

    Well I like Alox but I thin mine "BLL" style. (Ben's Liquid Lube, alox thinned with floor wax) If it was me I would try easing load up a bit, make sure you are going nothing to cause the brass to swage those bullets down. Maybe try going up a...

    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...

    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...
