    gpidaho replied to a thread First Henry 20" vs 16.5" in Leverguns
    Depends on the use of the 41, I'm a 41mag fan and have had the opportunity to shot the 20" Henry. As stated above, when firing pistol caliber rounds fps isn't that much different with the fast powders. If hunting in the brush undergrowth of the...

    I already have two 8s (one I bought from BadBob) or this would have sold when it was offered. Great cast boolit shooters. So, bump to the top for Bob. Gp

    Buckshot and Larry: Thanks for your replies guys. Looking at the chamber with my scope (it's a cheap one) it actually looks more like a bump or streak of something more than a scratch. SIL opined that if I protected the neck area of the chamber I...

    gpidaho started a thread New Savage 10 in Factory Rifles
    I recently purchased a new model ten Savage 308. The rifle seems to be very accurate in early tests but I noticed scratched cases on extraction. So far, breaking in the rifle I've only fired jacketed bullets mostly factory odds and ends I had on...

    My new RCBS ProMelt was purchased when Midway had a sale and with $100 rebate it brought the price down to the mid 200s but yes, it's Chinese. In OPs pic the new ones look to be an improvement with the PID. Gp

    Shoot-n-lead. Not to the point of doing any damage but when I first started using it in 9X19 The difference in 3.8gr and 4.2 was eye opening. I stay below 4gr with it now. Gp

    Yup, love my TiteGroup. You can make something fly out of about any caliber with it. Don't compress it in anything and be careful not to over charge. It can go from just right to OH **** in a hurry in a small case. Gp

    Thoughts from another addict and OCDer. I own both the RCBS Case master and the Hornady guage. The Hornady works much better at gauging bullet run out (Excellent) but doesn't gauge empty cases, also the bullet straitening feature advertised is in...

    Bama; Your comment about making sure there was no moisture under the checks reminded me of one of my early powder coating screw-ups. I heat treated a batch of bullets in the normal fashion and some time later decided to powder coat them. As the...

    Hello sw Idaho: Welcome to the forum and the powder coated bullet threads. I've been coating for a couple of years now and love the stuff. For me, I like to size first then coat as this is a good way to sort out the bullets that are under sized for...

    Hello all; I haven't posted much lately on the powder coating threads. Everything I had to say had been said many times. I'd formed my opinions as to ways and means. I have to admit to being somewhat opinionated ( There's a few old Russian-Germans...

    Love my Handi's, I own eight from 223 up to 444 and if they were still made I'd have a couple more. Also, my Hi-point 40S&W carbine never misses a beat. You can have a lot of fun out of inexpensive guns. Gp
