    osteodoc08 replied to a thread texting and driving in Our Town
    “Distracted driving” as they call it now out paces drunkenness as cause of fatalities on our road ways. Many states are making distracted driving illegal which includes texting, using your phone as a gps unless in a mount, etc.

    Does capacity matter to you? 1911- 7/8+1 XDM- 13+1 What about trigger quality out of the box? 1911 What about weight? XD-M It just depends on what you want. I enjoy my 1911's as range shooters, but for woods carry, I prefer the fantastic...

    I’ve always been a fan of 6.5-7gr 231 behind any 210-220 lead boolit. Been shooting those since a teen

    I think for the quality of the two that you now have now would be in the 6-900 range to replace quality wise although i'm unfamiliar with the welby model. In other words, you won't get the quality for the mear rebuild price if that makes sense.

    Make sure you have an air compressor that can keep up. Nothing like getting in a groove and running out of air and having to wait. If all you have is a pancake compressor, consider upgrading or you’ll likely be frustrated.

    I’ve shot PC 9mm 124gr Boolits from casting machine through my ported PC shield without any issues. I certainly wouldn’t hesitate to run them through the DW.. I also had an XD-V-10 in 40 well over a decade ago. Shot lead through it. Any lead inside...

    I load my 475 LB with MiHec 376-640s @ 1150. I can push them harder but no need since that combo will go through a steer/bison shoulder to shoulder. A 480 will reach that velocity no problem, might have to load to the higher end on the shorter...

    I feel there is a difference between getting spanked and outright abuse. I can’t say I didn’t deserve every spanking I got. I think as I got older a spanking would have been preferential to knowing I had disappointed my parents. I remember only one...

    I casted up about 15 lbs worth two weeks ago using 90-5-5. It was set up wit large pins and they averaged 248. This is a 434-640 gc mold. Looks like the same pin as my 477-640 mold, BIG.

    I think everyone has touched on the mistique of the 480 Ruger. It’s definitely underrated. It’s not too big, not too small, and in reality handles any situation I would need a big bore to handle.
