    Good morning, trying to keep it simple. Psalm 23: 1{A Psalm of David.} The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. 2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. 3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me...

    I have been planning to shoot my .308 loads out at 200 yards. Getting 2100 fps and around 2 inch groups at 100, the groups could be 8 or 10 inches at 200, (or Worse) since the RPM threshold causes groups to be non-linear. I believe this is how I...

    Cutting the extra long brass down to just short of full cylinder length makes brass that'll carry significantly heavier payloads of shot than any other type of setup with shot loads in the LC. I had one once, and 5 or 6 9.3x72mm brass that had been...

    This question comes up with some regularity, and it surely SEEMS like it'd be a good question. But in reality .... well, I once blew up a Super Blackhawk. It was with the equivalent of a double charge of powder. Won't go over the story again...

    IME, accuracy is a function of the combination of gun, load and shooter. Yes, particular bullet styles MAY come into play, but they're a very minor factor. I once had the Saeco 245 gr. (#441 IIRC?) SWC and a buddy had the Lyman 429421. The Lyman...

    Sunrises and sunsets just don't really register well on film. Back when I was trying to be a "photographer," I'd underexpose the film and overdevelop it, and that showed some pretty rich colors that were at least a little like what the real thing...

    Not in my mind, but you'll get disagreement on that from some sources. Personally, I don't take "trick questions" like this very seriously, really, because they're nothing but a question seeking an argument, and I've never seen anything good come...

    I'll take the .357 and .44 mag brass. Your choice on sending the .32's along or gifting them to someone else. I don't have a .32 H&R but if I end up with brass I might have to fix that. PM incoming.
