    Hannibal replied to a thread Bore Riding Question in Cast Boolits
    The 'basic' theory is that the bullet fill the groove diameter, 'lest you get gas cutting. In the case of a bore rider, the nose of the bullet contacts the bore diameter/rifling, while the base fills in the groove diameter. This allows the nose...

    Wow. Reminds me of a tale I've heard a time or 3. It's more elaborate than this, but the jist of it is, an old fellow was sitting on his porch when a family drove up and said they were thinking of moving to the town and proceeded to rattle...

    Hannibal replied to a thread I want SHINY brass in Our Town
    As others have said, SS pins , citric acid and car wash n' wax works REALLY well, especially if you store brass in zip lock bags. I know of no way achieve the same finish with a vibratory tumbler and dry media.

    Hannibal replied to a thread reamer questions? in Our Town
    Ah, yes! Now I understand. Still wouldn't have believed you could get away with taking a pneumatic impact wrench to one, but I never tried it. I'll keep this in mind. Might come in handy one day. As to the OP's question, at least one fella...

    Hannibal replied to a thread reamer questions? in Our Town
    Pretty much what I was thinking as well. All I know is the type of reamers I'm used to working with wouldn't tolerate the type of treatment described above.

    Hannibal replied to a thread reamer questions? in Our Town
    Good question. How much does a reamer cost, how much does a drill bit cost, and how long will either one last?

    Pay the man. Holy smokes, that is A DEAL! A good steak costs more than that. A LOT more if you try to cook it at home and jack it up.

    I suggest you decide what direction you intend to go in, what manner of 'shooting' you are interested in, and a more precise time of year in which you plan to make your trip. The other option would be to plan your trip around a particular event...

    I was planning on looking at a few other things, probably would have spent a couple of Ben Franklins, until I saw those powder prices. Couldn't get out the door fast enough, and I've no intention of going back.

    Stopped by a Bass Pro today. Powders all had dust on the container lids. They had Varget, Unique, H4350, some other stuff I'd not seen in awhile. And for the bargin price of $39.99/lb. Gee, I wonder why the lids were dusty?

    Hannibal replied to a thread Facebook? in Our Town
    I realize it depends on your settings and 'feeds' you get from 'friends', but I was getting inundated with too much drama and mindless drivel, so I removed everything I could from my page, selected the 'do not contact me' option, and haven't been...

    Hannibal replied to a thread Dove Season in Our Town
    Has anyone figured out a way to prepare the darn things so that they are at least somewhat above 'palatable'? Unless it's something causing me damage or potential problems, I don't kill anything I won't eat, as a general rule. And Thus far, I...

    That's perfectly acceptable for hunting purposes. I just like to know what my firearms are capable of. To each their own, I expect.

    There is a member on this forum that goes by ErnieBishop that is shooting some groups from a pistol that would absolutely embarrass most of us. Is he full of . . . stuff? I've no idea. But based upon what he's posted, I'm not about to give one...
