    I've got #1 & JM Marlin 45/70s, 300gr Horn JHPs shooting #1 loads in both. Don't really like 45/70 as deer gun. Got two #3s in 375 shooting 235gr Semi spitzer . Have went up to 300gr RN. Got rid of the 375w lever guns to go with loads of greater...

    I have a Ideal 322gr HP Gould Express that I shaved mould and increased dia" of Hp to end up with 272gr HP. I originally did this for a Colt NS in 455 Eley. It shoots fine with 4.5gr Unique. Shot as cast. I think it's only about 600fps. Never tried...

    I'm in Ohio with 38cal minimum straight case for dear. I've got 44, 375W and 45/70. I am playing with the 375w with spitzer bullets #3 Ruger. Thinking about some wildcat using .357" to .40 bore. What I want is the most velocity I can get. Anyone...

    When I was in basic some 50yrs ago we had Quick Kill training with Daisy BB guns. It was instinct shooting with no sights at disc thrown in air. Once on to it you could hit a dime more times than not. Me and a buddy were looking for the perfect 22...

    I wouldn't sweat a slightly over sized throat. The undersized throats are the problem. When bullet comes through its sized and if bore is larger you got problems. Some guns upset enough to make up for it other don't. I've got 3 m25s. Two are right...

    A nice original 7mm RB is going for more than $550 in these parts. Any shootable one brings that. Carbines bring more. The big interest a few years ago was to get a 7mm ( smokeless action) to convert to 45/70 with Numerich Buffalo Kits. One of the...

    I had a m71 Win in 450 Alaskan. My gunsmith had done the work and got stuck with the rifle. It was rebarreled with a Douglas. This was in 60s and he had been doing several because it was the subject of a lot of gun rags at the time. I think on the...

    25/20 & 32/20 were meat guns for a lot of people. Stump hunters killed a lot of deer with both of these. Not good for jump shooting or long range but 40-60yd is easy deer kill. Guys use 300mag for same thing and swear by them. I have only old...

    Finding a shotgun that shots to the point of aim with bead is a cherry. I've shot a lot of slugs, made dozens of slug guns and shot many more factory shotguns. A good slug gun, smooth bore will shoot into 3" at 100yds benched. Run of the mill guns...

    I haven't done it for years but I think there is one position of bolt , about 1/2 way foreward that allows you to lift bolt up from the rear and pivot it out of action and will disconnect from slide bar. If no video on 17, look at one for m10 or...

    I have shot many RRs and have had them apart. I have not fired a Wrangler but got to look one over. There isn't any comparison in quality. With out shooting the Ruger you can tell it's a better built gun. I'm not looking for any 22s but would buy a...

    I had a Destroyer and a Star both 9mm Largo. The ammo I got my hands on was Mil Surp but was Berdan primed. I used 38 super brass that I thinned the rims by turning. 38super would work but it looked to me it would over work the extractors. I used...

    I bought one new in late 60s and didn't really like it for two reasons. First being that at 60yds it would only do 3" groups. Second it bailed my brass over the hill. I didn't have any function problems and was shooting 240JHPs up and down the scale...

    Yes it sizes down and you loose case life by having to expand case mouth. The best way to solve over working the cases is to take a junk/odd die for a 257 cal cartridge and cut it off in a lathe. Used cut off wheel to part it and face off in lathe....

    1911 grips are a good one for beginning grip makers. Iron Wood or laminates are a lot harder to work than walnut or similar hardwoods. Straight grain is easiest to work for the beginner.
