    I just ran into a bunch of those blue looking cases as well, in 223 Rem, headstamped "WIN", and 40 S&W, headstamped "WMA". I originally dumped them in the trash but then sectioned a few and they are brass cases under what I now take to be some...

    Probably so. It's a neat rifle, I had always wanted a 7x57 sporter and had a few over the years, but none of them ever clicked with me for one reason or another and they all went down the road. This one is a keeper.

    If I were you I would try different head stamped cases. All mil brass seems to be rather thick and doesn't like to be formed a lot all at once. I make a lot of different cases with the 308mil brass, and not all work well, I do get my share of bad...

    They're growing on me too. This one is a toy for the most part, but I lucked into a decently sporterized '93 in 7x57 a few months ago that I have fallen in love with. Shot this target at 100 yards with it the other day.

    Isn't #4 buck .24 caliber nominally? Seems like one pellet would be roughly a .22 short. That's a pretty good shot for 90 yards. Congrats.

    I live in the mountains so no field hunting for me. Was out with my puppy the other day in woods and heard two Tom's from different directions calling. I can't walk far with my back so am limited to where I can realistically hunt. Pretty hard...

    I used the head as an example of hardness. My thought is base of neck also. Thanks I was curious about its impact power as I have toyed with the idea of a nice pellet rifle for awhile now. Appreciate the info. Ron

Biography:
I became disabled last year, and as a result I am no longer able to drive and really don't get out of the house very much. I was going stir crazy so I decided that I still had a love for guns so I decided to start reloading. I have a little range set up here on my farm and I am able to go down to my shooting table and do some plinking. I then decided that I wanted to go to that next step and try to cast my own boolits, so here I am.
