    I love it when it works out like that. Top of the spear point of the bottom post is dead on at 50 yds. with my 35 whelens light load when the crosshairs are sighted in 2” high at 100 for the full bore load. Lol, your good to go.

    You can’t go wrong either way. I went with the whelen in a tc encore and love it. It’s shot every cast boolit from 200to300gr. I’ve put in it extremely well, from 1275 FPS. to 2500fps. Still would like to have a short action bolt gun in .358 to go...

    In my book Ugly is as Ugly does. A good looking gun that consistently has a problem loading the second or third round would be terminally ugly to me. I will admit that Hipoints won't win any constest based on good looks. But when it comes to...

    If you want fast you can use an instant pot pressure cooker to speed things up. Otherwise I go with a hambone and 1 to 2 lbs of Pinto's, soak overnight, rinse well, put in a slow cooker. Season as you see fit. Me I mostly leave mine pretty plain,...

    You don't. Manuals, what I consider "good" sources list starting and max loads, list velocity, and pressure. Data that does not come with such information simply is not trusted as much. The other answer is you don't, but experience has...

    Copperheads are fairly rare here. We have many times the number of Canebreak (Timber) rattlers and eastern Diamondacks. We also have a very good quota of Cottomounths, too, mostly in the low lying places and the swamps around the river. And BTW,...

    Here we have a good example of why it's so difficult to discuss theology. Some believe one thing, and are haughty enough to think those who don't believe the same way are wicked or evil, and it's just not so! CHrist encouraged us to read and...

    This also reminds me of the way Christ said we had to come "like little children" to get the full benefit of all he so ardently tried to teach us. Children have a marvelous ability to "swallow whole" the things we and others try to teach them. ...

    Amen. It's so flagrantly assumptive to think that if God doesn't answer our prayers like we WANT them to be answered, and as quickly as we want, then He's not there at all. What a willful way to see God! He's given us so many things, so many...

    Some of the softer al. Checks “may” need heattreating or annealing to take the spring back out of them so they size tight and can’t be pulled off. I shoot mine up to 25, 2600fps. after that. Same and in some cases better accuracy as I get with...
