    I've shot both 2-1/2" & 3" .410 in three Judges and the patterns were terrible compared to a cut down .410 no choke Rossi single shot. A BIG difference. I like #12 shot in my handgun shot loads and yes, about 15' sounds right. I'm loading some .38s...

    The 788 22-250 turned me into a rifle looney in 1972 when I bought a package rifle at Gibson's for $85. That was the rifle, a mounted Universal 4x scope, and a Remington leather sling. A box of Winchester Super-X shells added $5 more. I thought that...

    I have exactly one Vortex Crossfire scope. It works as well as another but I think my two Redfield Revolutions, my Nikon Prostaffs, and two old El Paso K-Weavers are clearer to my eyes. I have focused &refocused the Vortex. Maybe it's my eyes. I...

    If you find an accurate load in your .22 Hornet-stop right there in my experience. That little booger can be frustrating. The best one I've owned was a Charles Daly/Armscor bolt action that Randy Womack talked me out of. I got consistent 1-1/4" 5...

    That's a shame as I consider the Marlin to be the smoothest best looking Savage clone ever. I guess I better get one soon. I saw a NIB .243 X7 on sale for $280 here while back-should have grabbed it. The Rem 783 is flat ugly. Sent from my...

    When you perspire and lose electrolytes, sodium salt is not what your body needs. Far be it from me to tell anyone else what to do; if your heart is healthy your body can deal with the sodium. However after 31 years working in the high heat...

    If it is indeed a bolt action, there is no concern of barrel to action fit as it is either pinned or threaded. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SGH-I547 using Tapatalk

    I would think standard 158 gr starting loads would still be subsonic from the rifle. No extra steps, easy. My opinion only! Sent from my SAMSUNG-SGH-I547 using Tapatalk

    Be aware that one screw is under the front sight dovetail. You have to remove the sight from the base to reach it. PM me and I'll mail the plug screws to you. Best, Thomas. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SGH-I547 using Tapatalk

    I find tang sights to be in the way. Fine for range work but not hunting in my opinion at least. My 1954 model 94 has a Williams 5D on it that I installed. It's the business for close range hunting. I've had two post 64s- a late 60's model that had...

    I had one in 30-06 (721) that was a good shooter and easy carry with a 6x Burris. When I think 30-06 that old Remington comes to mind. It was a kicker on the bench with 200 gr elk loads! Sent from my SAMSUNG-SGH-I547 using Tapatalk
