    I have them all over the garden. Drag one in now and then when I pick lettuce. I get them on a finger and carry them back outside because they kill a LOT of garden pests.

    I shoot BP ammo with zero compression in most of my accurate match loads. In rare cases my accuracy load will have 0.020 - 0.040". Compression with good powder is incidental to the barrel time you find the accuracy. In my humble opinion, much to...

    With the CED chrono all the important parts are back on the bench and out of the way. Sky screens and sensors are down range and can be bought as replacements. The all in one chronographs wouldn't stand a chance with me, especially with a shotgun. ...

    I'm not convinced. I shoot these games (a lot). I run the matches. I hear this logic about non-qualifying rifles, equipment and ammo all the time from people that are on the fringe and really don't compete. If a new to the game rifleman is serious...
