    If it makes a difference, this is ultimately a hunting rifle that pulls major bench duty and in wanting around a 2-2.5# trigger

    Have a 280 AI that was rebarreled by my smith and cerakoted. Nice hunting stock and scope. A tad heavy in the 9# range but Iím not hunting in the mountains and it spends more time at the range than anything. That being said, I really need a drop in...

    I’ve been wanting some really nice cast iron ware. I’ve been looking at butterpat, field, stargazer and a few others. I truly enjoy good cast iron.

    To me it seems: She was being independent even if financially expensive. Valued your opinion enough at the end of the day to have them order the tires you suggested. Arguing over this will ensure a short relationship.

    I don't own a Glock so can't comment on that particular weapon. I do own several different 9mm handguns and can comment generally on the cartridge. My 9mm weapons are Beretta, Taurus, Springfield Armory, and S&W. I always start with a run of...

    That would depend on the sources an individual has when he/she is trying to make a decision on a cartridge to use for whatever the use might be. I some circumstances, I am sure it happens. In others not at all since there will be other cartridges...

    the aesthetics are pleasing to my eye. I wouldn’t mind trying one out but I don’t see it replacing my smith M&P or XDS or even 1911 for carry. Perhaps they’re wanting to slot in somewhere between Taurus and the others price wise.

    I first ran into Red Dot as shotgun powder. I believe that was what it was designed for. That said, it works quite well as a pistol powder. Many use it for cast rifle as well.

    Larry-- It sounds as if some people are trying to set up things with supposition, so they can claim your results are wrong or at least not realistic. I will wait for the results and see what turns up. I have seen tests you have run before and I...

    I always thought of my poor eyesight as a handicap. In this case it may well turn out to be an advantage. I will wait a while before I determine which it is for certain.

    Wax maybe? Try going the other way and cleaning with a wax/grease remover.

    I think it used to be, but not now. 30-06 gets mentioned but not promoted like the smaller calibers do these days. Anyone who recently took up centerfire rifle shooting/hunting has mostly been exposed to the smaller than .30 calibers as being able...

    For most medium to large game here in the USA, there is no single cartridge that is head and shoulders better than another. You have lots of choices, so what are you going to base your choice on? The average hunter buys an adequate rifle and picks...

    One of the draws of the 30-06 is it presents the shooter with just about as much recoil in a standard hunting rifle as an average shooter can absorb fairly easily. If you go with a more powerful cartridge, you get into unpleasant recoil levels. If...

    Outpost75 is correct. I have loaded wadcutters in this manner and it did improve accuracy in my revolvers. I sized the boolits for a snug fit in the throats and had to press the cartridges into the cylinder. Not a hard push, but they don't just fall...

    If you look back at the popularity of rifle cartridges, you will notice that the ones that have been military cartridges have a popularity with hunters that exceeds that of most others. The 30-40 Krag may be most notable exception to this. 30-06,...

    Felt the same way with Hornady. I’ll make exception for their XTP 41 mag bullets. Otherwise I look elsewhere. I’ve bought a Marlin 45 Colt LE recently and it was better than several of my JM guns. So they can make a good one if they actually try....
