    I've been looking at that for about 3 weeks now. Haven't started the license process for the suppressor yet. Have to decide whether to go with a rifle first or the Browning. Don't have a semi-auto .22 since I gave the Ruger 22-45 to son for...

    My Daisy had open stamped metal sights and I managed to shoot sparrows, break beer bottles and could hit a pie plate that my dad threw up in the air reliably. He was quite amazed at the pie plate feat. He was not so thrilled about the broken beer...

    Mold is too cool. IMHO. If it was up to temp the lead wouldn't have time to cool so soon.

    Grips are Altamont. I couldn't do anything with the tiny originals.

    I have a 4" flat latch model 31 that seems to be sighted at 50 feet. It groups well at 25 yards just about 8" high. The 31-1 seems to be sighted for 25 yards. I love the 4" one but I am still trying to get it to shoot to sights.

    Could never get it to drop with .300 nose. Sold it and bought a 314299. It would spin in the muzzle until it caught the widest part at the mold marks. Shiloh

    My meat grinder is nothing fancy and I don't recall where I got it or how much it cost. I have used it several years and usually bone the deer all out and grind everything on the deer with exception of the back straps and tenderloins. I do one or...

    birddog1520 I am so glad your wife has progressed from her past health problems. I pray that she has no more issues like that. Also congratulations on your cast boolit 30-06 deer. Sounds like your TC frame is no stranger to deer kills. I also like...

    The brass had been loaded with full loads a bunch. Some was starting to split. Inconsistent boolit pull.

    Weston has 20% off of everything right now, but I've never used their grinders, so I cannot say good or bad. Metal gears should be a must, as well as a good cooling system. I've used a number 8 unit from cabela's the last several years, and...

    Took the little 31-1 to the range. Shot it at 25 yards from a Weaver stance. Load was RCBS 98 swc over a powder charge I didn't write down. 6 o'clock hold on the bull. Yeah I know 1/2 the shots missed the bull and 2 missed the plate. Lot of glare...

    Never say "Never", and never say "Always" when it comes to S&W Model and caliber alignments. Ya gotta have a "Rosetta Stone" to figure out the intricacies and subtleties, and mine has been The Standard Catalog of Smith & Wesson by Supica and Nahas.

    I did not have military experience, but grew up shooting from a very young age. Iron sights were the rule for me, and still are to a large extent. I have scoped rifles, but glassware is found on about 30% of my long arms. There are no optics on...

    Unsure if Lyman offers different cocks for their locks but an option is to heat and stretch the cock upward a little . I did this to a Dixie lock and made a big difference in the amount of spark I got .

    Thanks! dahermit. I had forgotten about Keith's specifications for lube grooves and drive bands. My use of either or both would be in a S&W696 as well as a Stroh conversion of a S&W Highway Patrolman. I probably wouldn't be exceeding the levels...

    LB: your comment about killing power being a function of large meplat is exactly what slugs are all about. Taylor Knock Out tends to favor larger calibers simply because the frontal area of the projectile dumps it's energy faster that smaller...

Μολὼν λαβέ; approximate Classical Greek pronunciation [molɔ̀ːn labť], Modern Greek [moˈlon laˈve]), meaning "Come and take them" is a classical expression of defiance reportedly by King Leonidas in response to the Persian army's demand that the Spartans surrender their weapons at the Battle of Thermopylae.
