    I confess that I find it somewhat difficult to follow this reasoning after reading what the goal of the OP is.

    2 lbs of SR4759. The only catch is that it is not in its original container, but I have reloaded w/ it & it behaves exactly as expected. $65 FTF in Western Oregon; anywhere between Salem and Eugene is quite convenient. Secondary consideration...

    The interior ballistics of VV N110 is a bit of a mystery over here IMO; by all accounts it performs comparably to Hogdon H110 on the high end, but also performs very well with substantially-reduced loads unlike H110. Please keep us posted, :)

    My sincere apologies if this is a dumb question, but you're sure that this is a muzzle break and not a flash hider yes ? It's just that "slots" make me think more of flash hiders, while "holes" are more often associated with muzzle brakes. Just...

    Well, current exchange rates have 105 Pakistani Rupees (PKR) to the USD, so 10M PKR would only be ~$95K USD. But certainly enough to buy back the family farm in Pashtun. ;) Your ship just came in - and it's setting sail for Karachi. :drinks:

    Thx, but not exactly the same however; sometimes poor thermal design will keep the heat inside an assembly, not permitting it to conduct to the surface where it can be removed via convection/radiation. For example, the exterior of a high-output...

    It's all about thermal management (and the better builds costs more $). The often-quoted 50k hours spec for LED's has historically cited associated junction tests of 25 degrees Celcius IIRC. (To their credit, Cree has updated their rated...

    +1 on Malkoff flashlights; I own some /very/ nice semi-custom ones, but for folks who want the best off-the-shelf, US-mfg lights, I always send them to Malkoff.

    Red Dot, in the .223 case, sounds like .22Mag but can deliver 2350 fps w/ the 40gr vMax. It is my favorite .223Rem load, and is so incredibly accurate that most folks wouldn't believe it. :-)

    When you scope your rifle, I would most likely be able to send you a set of RF dovetail rings, for free - which should accommodate most typical scopes. Just send me a PM anytime.

    If you are shopping around for additional quantities of those Speer 220's, feel free to PM me - I have a pretty good stash and could easily sell an unopened box or two. Or do I get banned for trafficking in JSP's here on CB ? ;)

    I have inexpensive Weaver bases (~$10), and inexpensive Weaver Classic rings (used for ~$10 at a gunshow, new for ~$15 shipped via eBay). It's really difficult to improve on the Weaver system without spending /much/ more money. :)

    So if I'm understanding this correctly; your wife has experience, practice, and confidence in taking big game with this particular Win94 BB. But you want her to shoot CB's instead, so you're having her change to a Browning 1885?
