    They are on par with Hornady. I switched to them when I found them. I am working my way into making my own at the moment. I used the 6.5mm, .27 cal, and 30 cal. Working on making my own gas checks. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk

    This study seams to reiterate the moot points of these debates. Any gun is better than none. I do have some after thoughts: Didn't the FBI do a study on this? Only a hit in the central nervous system guarantees a one hit threat removal. Any other...

    Considering that #1's will self stack. Pour a string of 9 of them into a 12 gauge shell and it gives you perfect 3 stacks of 3. So I have a hard time believing that .310 is "better" at stacking. It might be better in other area's. But that is not...

    GhostHawk replied to a thread Help me deside in Hunting with CB's
    I like the 310 also, it does very well for me accuracy wise. It does however eat up the lead. I not long ago also picked up a 200 gr and 218 gr, both of which shoot great in my .44mag handi rifles but have not yet been tested in the big...

    My guess is they are probably too big. Most cell phones, laptops have enough megapixels that pictures are coming out in the 3500 x pixel range. I use a small graphics program called Irfan view. Load the picture, go to image, resize/resample,...

    Well I like Alox but I thin mine "BLL" style. (Ben's Liquid Lube, alox thinned with floor wax) If it was me I would try easing load up a bit, make sure you are going nothing to cause the brass to swage those bullets down. Maybe try going up a...

    Hard times will sift the lot and separate the wheat from the chaff. I've had maybe 4 or 5 over the years that I could count on. And count myself fortunate. Still have one with me. Not as many as I would like but better than none.

    Truly a delight. I had a .30-30 with 20ga combo walk in my door a year ago. Guy had it to the pawn shop down the street and offered him 125$ IMO about 1/3 of its value. He asked if I was interested, and I said heck yes. He said how much? I...

    Mine slugged at .312. I got into a routine of shooting, come home and clean at least twice. I had better luck lifting old **** from the grooves using ATF (Dextron II or III was what was in my garage) Good luck with both the Lee .312 185 gc...

    Nice range. I live in town now and can’t have a set up like that. I do have about a 24 yd. section in the house I can shoot through though. I have to drive a short distance out of town to shoot further, so I envy your set up. Very nice!
