    So after I made my first not toooo intelligent remark without realizing a difference between bear hunting and bear protection, wouldn't a 10 mm semi auto that might hold 15 or so rounds be decent protection? Again where I live seeing a mountain lion...

    I certainly get the big, heavy part. Only fired a 460 once, not a top end load at all and yes those revolvers are huge. It was the power they deliver that I was thinking, or not thinking, about. I gave up on full house 44 mag loads years ago but no...

    Nobody heard of S&W 460's and 500's? I don't live in bear country but seems like something to consider.

    Yes today we have YouTube. Back in the 60's and early 70's it wasn't that hard to find smaller mom and pop gun stores that sold powder, bullets and had almost every kind of press set up on display so you had hands on experience to help you decide....

    A Hipoint in 10mm would be close, but it's mag fed. Have to cross breed with a Henry to get a tube. A Hihenry. Plus a little Henry good looks would go a long ways on a Hipoint.

    I'm not into old military weapons but I enjoy reading about them. I was reading Venturino in Shooting Times a long time ago, before he was so into old military weapons. I have no idea if he is right or wrong but know for several years he shoots the...

    I gave up on powder measures years ago. Use a dipper, Lee or home made, larger than the load you are seeking. Whether using a balance beam or electronic scale, slowly tip the dipper and let a little flow into the scale, then tap the dipper handle...

    Most people just will not believe it, but a cast 405 gr in a 45/70 in an accurate mouse fart load is an absolute hoot to shoot tree rats in the head. Not a lot of damage at all. But till you try it you will never know. A bunch of powders available...

    Might want to look at a Savage Axis and T C Compass. I have 3 axis and 2 T C's. All 5 will shoot great groups. All are very inexpensive. T C stock is a bit better, but a ton of axis info over on SavageShooter.

    I found several on the internet last night, this type was for the Springfield 1903/ 1903A3. Several similar tools for most US military weapons. Thanks for your knowledge and help.

    I know the dogbone out of the no good square primer is heavier than the dogbone in the old round primer. Although it will fit in the round primer, it will not function. At least mine wouldn't. Seems like a metal one could be fabricated, may look a...
