    The Win 61 on top is a 1955 with tip off grooves. The scope rings are low. The Win 61 on the bottom is 1950 with no grooves, but homemade side mount designed to get the scope bore lower.

    My eyes are in real trouble... but that scope is as close to over the bore as I can get it. The scope rings are sideways, as I try to get low and over the barrel. I use that rifle for shooting pests in the garden with CB short that sound like a BB...

    When I play around with Quickload / Quicktarget, the longer throat and boat tailed bullet are both more important for range than the jump from 357 mag to 357 max case length. The primer piercing will be the likely be the pressure limit. CCI 450...

    In pursuit of long range hunting..... 1) I would not use a 357 max reamer for a single shot. I would use a 0.380" straight fluted reamer for a tighter fit on the brass. https://www.mscdirect.com/product/details/02033801 2) I would throat the...
