    Hey, I resent that old crack. I ain't old just used to much when I was new! Seriously there weren't a whole lot of deer rifles in Ohio since they weren't legal to hunt with. Varmit guns were common. It was a different story in 50s & 60s. The area...

    I have read some of the posts here time to time, but I'm the chorus. I got heavy into Target guns in early 70s. I had them all. The beating I take from guys that know me is that I got rid of Pythons and Diamondbacks and some of the Officiers Model...

    Maxim made his fortune on industrial silencers for the early air tools. The silencers for firearms didn't come close to industrial market. I'm sure there are many more silencers on firearms now than have ever existed. Technically suppressors, I...

    You are right about the hardness of Speer 235g bullets. One of my favorite rifles was a old Sako 375 H&H I bought new in 60s. I started using the 235 for deer, even shot some Ground hog with them. I sold the 375 H&H couple years ago, to old to go...

    The 308 case cut to length and necked with 41 mag die should work. In past when Ohio was Slug only we were trying to come up with Super Slug guns that could pass as 410s. We experimented with Brit 303, 30/06, & 444 necked to 41. All fired through...

    When I was a kid someone gave me some old 12g loading tools. They were the old cast iron with table top clamps on each tool. I think they were ideal but not sure. There was a slug mold and a die with a crank handle that pushed it through by screw...

    I use 2400 for jacketed bullets, the heaviest bullet I've ever loaded was 300g Sierra. Didn't like it and went back to 240jhp. I use Unique for all my cast loads in 44 & 45. I'm loading 8.5g of unique in 45Colt with 250gr RNFP cast. I had a 270gr...

    I would reline to short and shoot it. I have bought project guns and they all seemed to be pumps. Wins, Rems and Marlins. People try to convert 22wrf to LR and short to LR, and seem to never get the job done. It turns out to be more technical than...

    I have never got a nice 99 in 30/30. They are always thrashed. I've had quite a few, most are 300sav & 303sav. I just sold a nice 303 after dragging it around for a year. The 30/30 have always been desirable even when most of the other 99s weren't...

    I have owned a sack of good 32acp pistols. I never did much shooting with them other than fool around plinking. My only gut buster type gun that I keep is a Walther PP 32. For what it is it is accurate enough to be practical. I always wondered why...

    Back in 60s when deer hunting took off big time in Ohio most guys just used their everyday shot gun to hunt with. A guy using a 12g Win LA blew up the gun with a rifled slug. Luckily he wasn't hurt seriously. He claimed it had been shot for years...

    I have no experience with Rossi guns but have Lyman tangs on 3 rifles. 53Win, 94 Win and a 100 yr old Marlin 1894 32/20. Perfect fits. I would tend to think it Rossi problem. Have a lot of Lyman sights of both newer and old production. I like the...
