    Yeah, many of the new TV shows are showing a deliberate liberal perspective & narrative. Social Engineering is very much underway & its not covert but overtly obvious.

    Thank you guys so much! It looks like even I might be able to do this, especially if I work inside a clear plastic bag! [smilie=l:

    I was bird hunting this week with a 12 ga Remington 11-87 The gun failed to extract & jammed. On examination the claw extractor in the bolt was gone & inside the bolt cut-out all that was there was a small extended spring. I found the replacement...

    Thanks reivertom, I definitely have a fondness for the cartridge & the rifle. I hope you are right & I'm very encouraged now! BTW: I like the K4 scope idea for the rifle. These days I like a little more power. Perhaps a nice 2x-7x maybe in order...

    Here is a quick update. Hunting season came up fast & unfortunately I also had some recent flood damage to my home. Everything went on the back-burner including the Savage 99 project. But yesterday I needed to make a quick trip to the range to check...

    I'm experimenting & planning on making a bracket that I can screw into the top of my press for holding various gadgets like priming tools, trimmers, etc. I needed a 7/8"x14 bolt to sacrifice as the screw-in base stub. The only thing I could find at...

    It does sound like you have a wife worth keeping. Bass Pro (I mean Cabela's) loss is FFF gain.

    As we get into the minutia of press-springing, I wonder what the readings off a turret press would be? That little Grizzly press has been around for quite a while & that is a good price on it.

    LOL...a statement like that is sure to rile a few folks! But I too swore off the .243 years ago. That is probably THE most popular caliber for Hill Country deer hunting in Texas. Low recoil & super accurate! Most hunters say their deer dropped like...

    I'm not a benchrest competitor, but those guys & their rifles always fascinated me & indeed they were pioneers in moving rifle/cartridge accuracy to greater levels. On another website, I met a shooter that had a Shilen premium SS match barrel for...

    The Bald Eagle brand is best known for quality front rests that were/are popular with benchrest shooters. I know nothing about the press but if it accurately machined it looks like it would be a handy press on your bench for bullet seating. ...

    I'll reply by telling you about what worked for me when the ranges got longer & my eyes got older. I live & hunt in Texas & we are blessed with a lot of deer. My style of hunting has always been from high-rack trucks looking over South Texas scrub...

    I bought an inexpensive PSE X-bow package & I'm really having some fun with it. But the fact that most X-bow makers just throw the scope in is telling in itself. The same with air rifles. These scopes work but for the most part they are...
