    We are fond of these little window stickers here. They have big voices for their tiny bodies. I love to eat mature bullfrogs but all the other toads and frogs are left be. I always liked the old saying- "If you eat a toad frog first thing in the...

    These days it seems like I shoot all handguns better with just my dominant hand. 45 years of ingrained Weaver/Cooper two handed shooting is tough to fight against; but here I am. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G930A using Tapatalk

    I could be wrong and frequently am; but I think the only true top eject Remingtons were the Models 8 and 81 semiautomatic center fire rifles. Its ok(I guess); the gun writers I grew up reading were full of bull occasionally as well. Sent from my...

    I've acquired the last two I've run across and they shoot fantastic. My dad taught my brothers and I how to shoot with his 511 that his father gave him around 1950. My Uncle was given a 512. I have much respect for these models in craftsmanship,...

    Double set triggers are quite sensitive to dirt- but you say that the hammer falls. What does the primer on the unfired round look like? If it has a light dent the problem may be a weak spring or dirt in the firing pin tunnel. I have no experience...

    Winston 10, I simply suggested a safe starting load. If I hurt your feelings by stating that .300 Savage data was a bit high to start with, sorry for that. I was comparing chamber pressure numbers as well. Anyway, have a good day.

    Piece of cake to find the path with a valve locator/ wire tracer since you had the foresight to install the copper wire in the ditch. Some irrigation supply houses rent them out. The bent wire witching works if your voodoo is correct- seriously....

    It may vary depending on the part of the country that you are in. There are no $99 dollar Remington 700s( or any other brand of CF rifle) anywhere close to here. There is a statewide gun buying/selling/trading online site that I dont even look at...

    Varget probably holds the record for becoming a “classic” powder in the shortest amount of time. I keep several pounds of it because it has worked splendidly in .223 on up to 30-06 with no problems.

    My unsolicited opinion is that the H110/W296 is not the problem- crappy brass syndrome is. It’s been said before- Winchester should have based it on 5.56 brass to begin with. I see and read about problems that seem to be unique to the “Legend”; but...

    The .220 Swift m77 seemed to be more consistently accurate than all the other Rugers that my brothers and friends had back then. My brother had the best luck with his with Norma brass, Sierra 52gr bthp, and IMR 4064. Years later I had a Savage 112V...

    Thank you, JSnover. I remember they sent one in .45 WM to Finn Aagard for a write up; it blew out at the action. Luckily he wasn’t injured, but the article was canceled. .50AE is even more scary due to the metal that would have to be removed to...
