    I am a big fan of receiver sights. They help but depending on your eyes they may not work for you. Red dots tend to would for everyone but for hunting I prefer scopes.

    Larry Gibson replied to a thread Range Scrap BHN in Cast Boolits

    I just replace an electric 30 Gal water heater. $400 for it or a 40 Gal model but I couldn't fit the 40 Gal unit in the hole. It's my fault for failure. I changed this heater about 6 yrs ago. What I noticed on all my heater failures is the anode...

    It's not going to be more accurate, probably, but it sure woudn't blow up your gun. It's not like mixing smokeless powder. Like was said above, most powders are a slight mix of different grades anyway, the kernels are not all exactly the same, just...

    I use 6.5 gr Unique under the 358477 or the Lee TL 158 SWC. That has proven to be an excellent medium range 357 load. For magnum lloads I uuse 2400 or H110 under the 358156.

    Hickok45 is a good shot, but he's not really shooting long range. His farthest gong is 80 yards from where he is shooting. It just looks longer on the videos.
