    35 shooter replied to a thread recoil in Single Shot Guns
    Others may differ, but my TC Encore is the easiest recoling rifle i've ever shot. Full power loads from a 35 whelen are really no problem with it. Some of that may be due to the flex type synthetic stock that came on it.

    Winchester must be proud of it since they're calling it a mod. 70. Good looking stock on it. I looked it up on the air gun pro site.

    You can make almost any rifle bearable. I have a .444marlin handi rifle that is a pussycat. But I am not shooting factory loads either. Essentially shooting moderate .44 mag loads in .444 brass. .357mag with light bullets and 4.6 grains of Red...

    I don't have a .44mag handi rifle. But I do have a .444marlin handi rifle that shoots .44mag loads in .444 brass. I like the lighter weight 220 grain Truncated Cone. It is in a Lee 6 cavity mold, does very well. Shoots well. I also have the Lee...

    Waiting to see what they come up with for rifles caliber wise. But color me interested. I have a definite "thing" for unique single shots. At 800 to 1k$ which is more fun, 4 of those in 4 different calibers? Or a baby Rolling Block? Tough...

    Yes it will hold an edge. I have at least 7 or 8 around the house. I do like to put the knife in a vice (padded) and take a small file to the back edge. They tend to have a rounded profile. For ferro rod work and scraping fatwood I like a...

    Look em over carefully in bright light. Modern pewter will say it is pewter and is 95% tin. And the other stuff won't hurt ya none. As mentioned above, soft, bendable when thin/flat. Low melt point, silverish color, if more blue and no hallmark...

    I shoot my .357 handi in .360dw brass also. They tend to have a long throat. I played with a dummy load until it would just snap shut without leaving rifling marks on the bullet. Then used that dummy to set my dies. 3 in one hole at 50 yards,...

    My experience with RCBS molds generally is that they cast small if you use an alloy such as COWW+2% tin. Outpost75 : I'm in full agreement. They do have a tendency to cast small. I avoid them. Ben

    Good job! And yes, deer can be vocal on rare occasions. I've heard deer cry out or bleat at times and heard a buck grunt on my last trip.

    Rockrat I have a .357mag Handi rifle and it had me considering it. I have seen just barrels go for 4-500$ this last year. Get the whole gun for barrel price, that is win win in my book.

    I would assume by now that most of you know my opinions on Ben's Red. With that said, I also made some of Glen's Black Moly lube about a year ago. Some good stuff and shoots well in a wide variety of cast bullet cartridges for me. Ben

    I stack the ingots and spray paint the ends real quick with a color that represents the alloy. Some day I'll get around to stamping them.
