    BOY HOWDY !!!! Looking at that doe I finally understand's what the word "ghastly" means. We don't use buckshot here. So I've never seen the results before. Pretty informative.

    I think I've got to check my safes in the garage, that sounds exactly like the 30yr old T/C set up I have for my 10" Bull bbl. I used to use the SAECO (#354) 180gr FPGC cast of # 2 over 16.0grs of 2400. Sized .358, It's a bit hot with today's...

    Depends if you Full-Length size. I don't for any .30-30 Load. I Partial-Size only. My loads fit my H & R Handi-Rifle, Marlin 336 and both Winchester 94's. I can't remember the last time I lost a case. Even using full power loads. I...
