    BHuig you asked about a PID. HATCH, the moderator here, is the man to go to. He builds and sell him. Ask him your questions. I believe JonB in Glencoe is another to ask questions too, he's also a moderator.

    The 8.15x46R works best with 1:25 or 1:30 tin-lead alloy at velocities from 1100-1300 fps like the .32-40. Lee Liquid Alox works fine with 180-grain bullet and 13.5 grs. of 4227, 18 grs. of IMR4198 or 23 grs. RL7 powder, or pan lube with Emmert's or...

    I no longer shoot .45-70, as I can no longer tolerate the recoil and consider the cartridge too hungry of powder and lead. The great majority of my shooting today is with .32-20, .38 Special, .44-40, .44 Magnum and .45 Colt in both rifles and...

    The dreaded internal lock—a.k.a. Hillary Hole—began in 2002 with the 66-6, the Model 66-7 featured a two-piece barrel and more internal lock mechanisms. Smith & Wesson dropped the Model 66 from production in 2005. You might ask them if they...

    Forget that rpm thing. The velocity you picked as the most accurate pretty well may not be. To say it wouldn't shoot more accurate at a higher velocity is just not true.

    So I have always thought that the accuracy loss at too-high RPMs was a result of the boolit destabilizing. It sounds like I was basically attributing cause and effect improperly. The boolit will not destabilize when spun too fast, but accuracy is...

    Some states, it's the sheriff. Other states, it's the state police. in Louisiana, you never deal with the sheriff unless for finger printing. The state police are the ones issuing the permits for us.
