    I'm considering sleeving a 12 gauge single shot with a spare 50-caliber muzzle loading barrel and then running a 50-70 Govt Reamer into it to create a new chamber. My 1868 Trapdoor in 50-70 is a blast to play with.

    LOL! get new insoles and swap them out regularly! You only get one set of good knees. the replacements can't handle the same amount of stress.

    All Jokes Aside. You are going to a RTR that has had a major issue with hazing and a bad command climate which may have directly lead to a Recruit's death. You are being assigned there most likely because the school has seen a level of...

    Use the lead alloy calculator. great little asset to have when you are mixing up alloys without having to do the long math by pen and paper.

    Buy a 7mm cast bullet mold and use the 7mm-08 as is. No reason to rebuild it into something else. A LEE 130gr cast bullet loaded to 1800fps will definitely tame your recoil issues and make it an enjoyable range rifle again.

    I keep them just a little over 2400fps in my Garand although I can load them up with 7mm-08 data in that Garand. I also have a 1909 Mauser I rebarreled to 7x57 a few years back that likes them as well.

    Does the father acknowledge that the stand is facing in the wrong direction to hunt his property? He may not be aware of the direction the stand is facing and may have just told the son to "go put a stand on the treeline on the south side of the...
