    My barrel slugged at .4505” and my forcing cones are .451” so my boolit sizes down just enough for zero leading and excellent accuracy as fast as I can push it. Been down that road the day I picked up my pistol and talked back and forth with Doug. I...

    I bought a lee 255 grain mold for my new vaquero. I load them long (almost touching my forcing cones) with 5.2 grains of trail boss. I can hit shotgun shells with every trigger pull at 25 yards when I have the correct finger placement on my trigger....

    I own the Lee univeral expander die. I use it for cast. Never thought I would need to expand the necks for j words. Both RCBS and Speer told me I should not have to flair case necks with jacketed bullets. Both told me my issue was either an an...

    I wanted to follow up on this thread. I received replacement bullets from Speer and a replacement expander ball from RCBS. I also changed out my flat seater die to a conical seater die thinking it would help center my bullets into the case necks....

    I don’t score my fish. I would help cook a thick piece of meat more even and quicker I’m sure. I just never felt the need to. The above piece is smoked. Almost 10 hours. All the outside that has a dried brown appearance tastes like smoked carp. I...

    It's a $5 mesh pan I bought from Walmart. My 44 and 45 cal dont fall over on it when moving it into the oven. A few of the 35s fell over today and never left road rash from laying down. I use silicone mats for my 255 grain 45 colts These are lee...

    I use them for non gas checked bullets. If I stand up GC boolits on silicone mats the PC flows outwards on the bases. Even with a thin coat it's a struggle to get GCs on. I use a mesh tray set on a baking pan lined with tin foil for my GC boolits so...

    I Normally fill my lee 4/20 pot to the brim and cast till it’s empty. I’m about ready to quit when I get to the last inch or so of melted lead but milk it out to the end. I casted up a pot full of a lee 200 grain hollow point .360’s from my MP mold...

    It’s nice to know I’m not the only one that loses gas checks. It always Riles me up when I’m looking for those nice perfect little mushrooms buried in my backstops and the gas check is missing.

    I’d like to upgrade to the magnito speed that attaches to the barrel. You’ll never shoot one of those. I’ve hit the rods on my Beta a few times. My favorite was drilling my motion decoy and a coyote running full throttle over it at the same time...

    I picked up an 18 pack today from Sam's for $21.98. It always drives me nuts because my two trail cams take 20 batteries. I'll have to pick up a 4 pack.

    Here’s another batch... It almost reminds me of some really good cod. I soaked the back half in brine for smoking. If I would have known how good it was I would have been fried up as well.

    I had to dig. Here’s a pic of my 1967’ 600 chambered in 243. I had a leupold 2x7 vx1 on it and switched it out with a 100th anniversary leupold 3x9 vx11 with ballistic aiming points. It’s lighter than my BB gun. It will put three shots all in the...
