    I'm at total loss on this 3D stuff, I know nothing. One guy is telling me halves can be "sonically welded" instead of glued. I thought the materials were color coded I didn't realize they came in colors. On the strength of the body, I bought plastic...

    I got some feed back from one of the 3D nuts. He isn't a fisherman but threw another idea out. He is talking about printing the main body as two shells to be glued together. I like the idea because you could form the wire so it would be locked and...

    On several UL lures I've made I had to do away with the rear treble to get them to work. Also I was buying EC standard trebles for everything. Then I realized the wire hooks were less than half the weight of the forged hooks. A considerable weight...

    This is some of the problems you run into when scaling down. The weight ratio of parts is critical on UL lures. Even on small diving lures with lips if they are scaled off bigger model they usually work poorly or just track on the line. The outfit...

    When I started out with 243 I had no 243 Brass. I had Military 7.62 by the bucket. I formed all my brass from military and as someone has already posted it always required neck reaming. There was once an article in NRA magazine in 70s about forming...

    The new Win 350 is about same as 357. There is low end models of them coming out. The last couple years I sighted in a couple Ruger 77/357s and they were surprisingly accurate. Don't know what they go for used. We just got Rifle in Ohio a few years...

    I'm into same project myself but no 3D hand whittled. If you go to this trouble buy some good trebles, China is junk. I would say .031 is smallest SS wire for this job. Unless you are going into production small units of both split rings and wire...

    I never melt boolits back down to make others. I might if I had no way to get any lead. Bullets are worth more than bullet metal. If I couldn't use them I would package them in zip locks and deal them off or sell them.

    My favorite deer guns are all slim line type. I've shot a lot of deer with a Rem 141/35cal, Win 1895/ 30-06 and Win & Marlin levers. Starting in 60s Sav and Marlin started with beaver tail forearms and chubbier than necessary stocks. I never liked...

    I have quite a few levers and they all have straight stocks. When Ohio got rifle a few years back I traded up a Marlin 375win. Nice rifle, couldn't get with pistol grip stock it just didn't point natural to me. This 99EG doesn't bother me and seems...

    I really didn't notice any unusual drop in stock vs scope. I've only fired the gun off bags and wasn't paying much attention to that. None of my woods deer guns have scopes on them except a 870 12g. Most have reciever sights. I hunt in thick cover...

    I bought a 99EG 250/3000 last year. It is a 1950 and shoots 100-117gr bullets well. It's not the rifle I wanted but it's in excellent shape. It has been D&Ted and sling studs installed. I wanted a straight stock carbine like I once had when young. I...
