    There is to much over thinking on cartridges and bullets for deer. A 30/06 is plenty of gun for deer and the best bullet is the one your rifle shoots best. All the Hunter has to do is make a decent shot. Gimmick bullets don't make up for poor shots.

    I’ve got a few 357s and they shoot very well. I have m19s & m27 S&Ws. They are ok but when you get right down to it if you are shooting a lot of 38Spec loads you don’t need a 357mg. I say 357 is minimum and marginal for deer size game and only at...

    I have Brownell's screw drivers and several other top shelf sets. I have been thinking of buying bit type set. I use drill/ drivers almost every day and can tell you their is a big difference in quality of bits. Brand name means nothing because most...

    The only major leading I’ve ever had was with factory swaged lead bullets. I cast for several calibers and size for individual rifles. I use to cast hard bullets but I don’t anymore. I shot loads of cast in revolvers and original LV type rifles at...

    I didn’t have any interest in service type revolvers when I first got heavy into guns in early 60s. S&W and Colts were a dime a dozen used. When I started shooting m10s I found that if you shot 158gr police loads they were on the money.

    Drm50 replied to a thread Winchester M95 Russian in Leverguns
    I used 200gr RN cast for 30/40 Krag. I got my loads out of a Lyman manual from 40s. The 1895 Win action is best kept under 4500psi I had several original 1895s. 30/40, 30govt06, 7.62 Rus and 303 Brit. They all did better with RN bullets, cast or...

    I would have bought that deal even if I had no use for it. Does Canada have restrictions on barrel length now that they didn’t have before? It’s been 10yrs since I’ve hunted bear in Canada. I use to go 2-3 times a year and always took two rifles. My...
