    When I first started hunting with a real gun I hunted squirrels, rabbits, pheasants, and quail. For quite a few years I had lots of good hunting spots and life was good. Then came the blizzard of 1978, Here in NW Ohio in January of 1978 we had the...

    Jedman replied to a thread New rifle choice in Factory Rifles

    It just happened to me recently. I have a antique Stevens tip up rifle that I relined to 38 special. The action is pretty strong so I worked up a accurate load that shoots a H&G cast 160 gr. FN at a little over 1200 fps. I have wanted to take a...

    I have never heard of or seen the round but a 45 ACP is so short already that to neck it down to 38 cal. And have even a .200 length neck it's going to be very small powder capacity and to get even 38 spl ballistics would require loading it to quite...

    I have a Marlin M 375 levergun and a H&R handi rifle I built in 375 Win. Neither is as strong as your Ruger but you have a slightly shorter barrel. I have played with 200 and 220 gr jacketed bullets and have stopped at book max loads. Unless you...

    I have a lot of single shot rifles but never owned a # 1 for unknown reasons ? I always had the money to buy one and came close many times but never even bought a used one. Just 2 years ago I could have bought a NIB no. 1 in 338 Federal in a...

    If it is as you say a piece of steel ironed on aposed to a divot or part of the bore that has been gouged somehow maybe you could try a carbide rifling button. You didn't mention how many grooves your barrel has, I think some were only 2 groove...

    I have sleeved the chamber on several rifle barrels and they have worked out well, but they were all shorter in length than the new cartridge to be used. If your sleeve is say 2 1/4" long and you ream it for a cartridge that is say 1 1/2" long and...
