    I know everything is bigger in Texas but are your grasshoppers big enough to put on the grill ? Jedman

    I load the 45 ACP mostly with Accurate Nitro 100. It was a good 12 ga. target load powder when I use to shoot trap & skeet but also works great with the 45 ACP all bullet weights. The powder I have is 20 years old and now they have a Nitro 100 NF (...

    Single shots are my favorite type of actions because there are so many different ways to breech a gun for one single shot. This is my Belgium made miniature Comblain action 410 shotgun. It is probably the most uncommon of the dozens of different...

    Not that I would try it or approve of shooting the wrong ammo in a shotgun to see what would happen. There are videos on YouTube where two guys had a low priced old break action 410 single shot with a full choke ( fixed ). They measured the ID of...

    I have owned several no. 5 Remington rolling blocks in 7 mm . I also watch them on gunbroker and other websites as I like them enough to buy others. I have never paid more than $ 400.00 for a nice original gun. I seen a decent carbine go for $425.00...

    I would say that is quite high priced for a sporterized rifle. What had been done to it ? Jedman

    I feel your pain ! The 28 ga. Is also my favorite for most upland game. That's a shame that as long as you could prove your not using lead that is not good enough. Its like hunting with a wildcat cartridge that meets all regulations but the name...

    Nice Job, Marco ! I think it's only right that sometimes the game comes easy. Some years for deer I spend hundreds on gas, motels, sit out in rain and snow freezing and come home with nothing. Once in a while you walk out and kill one 5 minutes...

    I once shot a antelope in Wyoming with a H&R handi rifle I built in 45 ACP and was checked by a game warden who was watching the whole thing from about a 1/2 mile away. I was hunting on Walk In land and was legal but when he checked my rifle I had a...

    I have a Sig/ Sauer M 200 switch barrel rifle and I found a local guy selling a 9.3 X 62 barrel, magazine, dies, brass, and bullets that fit my rifle so I bought it all. The brass was brand new Norma in boxes of 20 so I loaded about 10-12 with a...

    This is mine, I bought it back in the 1970's and just for the heck of it made and installed a muzzle brake and did the checkering on the stock. Mine is 1 1/2 to 2" accurate at 100 yards. I have heard of others tell me there's shoot 5-6" groups ? If...

    I dont think you can think of it as forward thrust . In the millisecond after firing where pressure is building it is applied to everything in relation to the cartridge. The brass expands to grip the chamber but that is just some resistance, the...

    Just seen this post for the first time. You did a great job ! When I did my 50-70 conversion I made a complete new extractor for it and it was quite a lot of milling time. If I did another I would just modify the shotgun extractor. I just recently...

    Up until 4 years ago Ohio had regulations that only allowed shotguns, muzzleloaders and centerfire pistols .357 and larger for our deer gun season. Myself and another member on this forum decided to make our own fully rifled 410 slug guns for deer...

    A primer cannot back out if the headspace is correct. .010 would be acceptable on a antique or BP cartridge. It's bad news when you see what you have described. Jedman

    I second the Mossberg Chuckster. I had one 30 years ago and it shot great. I see them used for under $ 200 and they are a good rifle. Jedman

    A friends son brought a new S&W revolver to deer camp one year. It was in 460 S&W Mag. And had a 8"+ ported barrel and rings and a new scope to match. He kinda talked me in to mounting the scope then sighting it in for him as I think he had shot it...

    I am a sucker for old 22's when I see them with wood stocks that need refinished but in good working condition. Last week I found 2 like that, a Stevens M 15 and a Springfield M 52A both are in decent order just need a little love. I paid $40 for...
