    Nailed him, hook line and sinker! Yeeeeeeeeeeeehaw! Enjoy brother! FYI I run almost exactly that same slug load. I went a couple of grains lighter on powder. More of a tactical load. Easier on old shoulders. Still easy to put together. And...

    GhostHawk replied to a thread Fast food tipping?? in Our Town
    I have a step daughter who has been a waitress, survived on tips essentially. Got paid less than 4$ per hour. If she wanted to eat, she had to hussle and make tips. Actually it drove home some very good life lessons for her. And changed my...

    I'm a BLL user, but I would. 2 or 3 very thin coats so you can just start to make out a color change is what I aim for.

    I put an app called Mr Number on my phone. One of the options is to block anyone not in your contact list. I went from 4-8 robo calls a day to none. No stupid calls interrupting my naps. Gives you a list of all blocked calls you can scan once...

    I did it for a Win 94 .30-30 with a bad bore. I drilled a block of plastic to slightly larger than the size I wanted to size them up to. Reversed the drill in the chuck so I had the flat end down. Placed a piece of thin steel over the...

    I have to agree with Roger. Started out with next to nothing. Sitting on a fair stash, somewhere in the 3-400 lbs area, but I am not shooting near as much as I was either.

    In the last 2 years I have bought 150 lbs of COWW smelted, in muffin ingots, in 5 gal bucket, delivered to my door. Paid a dollar a pound and felt like a real winner. For wheel weights in a bucket my max would probably be 45 or 50 cents per...

    I have been looking for a pistol with 6" barrel that would shoot either the .32 H&R or the .327 fed. I have yet to find one that appeals to me enough to pry the cash out of my pocket. I have a pair of H&R Revolvers, 732,733 2.5 inch barrels...

    Red Dot because A it works. B moderate loads 4-7 grains perform very well. Plus are very accurate. As compared to a rifle load of slow powder at 50+ grains. C Red Dot is my go-to powder for most things. Not my SKS's favorite, but everything...

    I have Hipoint carbines in 9mm, .40sw and .45acp. .40 was first, dropped a 60$ Red Dot on it and loved it. Wife loved it, but wanted one that "bumped her shoulder less". Enter the first 9mm (had 2, both used, let a shooting buddy rob me of one) ...

    I have Hipoint Carbines in 9mm, .40sw, and .45acp. Of the three I think I like the .45acp the best. I have handi rifles in .357mag, .44mag, 9mm and .45colt. .357 is dang accurate, frankly none of them suck. .45colt is fun but so are the...

    I have a single six convertable, .22lr or .22mag. Cussed it for years, just never could get it to settle down and make decent groups. Then one day I was taking a neighbor to the range and threw it in the bag with the .22mag cylinder in and a box...

    I don't shoot thousands like Larry G but I have shot a lot of those sweet little .314 90 gr TC boolits. 7.62x25 Cz-52, .300BO, .30-30, 7.62x39, 7.62x54r, and .32sw long. They shoot great. I tend to run mine over moderate loads of Red Dot. The...
