    Yea. I seen those. Has me wondering about quality too. Guess I'll have to spit up 500 bucks if I want one. The Meprolight looks interesting.

    Mine says 72 hours continuous use with cr2032's. If you knew me, you would know my luck goes to hell at the worst possible time. It would die the very instant I raise on a lifetime buck!

    For what you describe, I see a red dot on top of it. I bought a Pursuit 25mm red dot for my 45- 70. $49.95. It's a Bass Pro brand, seems to be handling the recoil of it (only about 50 rounds so far but I think it will be fine), and puts me in a 3...

    As I get older, my vision is going far sighted. Having a hard time seeing the front sight. It keeps getting worse. I don't need magnification for the hunting I do. I have been using a red dot. It works very well and I can shoot both eyes open....

    I can now see why you want it a little faster. I would feel a little naked hunting hogs with a .38. How fast do you think a fat man can climb a tree? Just watch me! Lol.

    I checked my books, and we settled at 4.4 gr universal. It was the most accurate load from that revolver with that boolit. Speed isn't always everything. Never chronographed the load, but should be around 750 fps.

    Antelope maybe. Sounds to light for deer. As mentioned by steamburn, the good reports about .223 and deer just might be because AR's are shooting heavier boolits then they used to. A 1 in 7 twist can stabilize a 90 grain boolit. I think a 64 might...

    I think you are looking at the picture wearing the wrong color eye glasses. Speed shouldn't be the ultimate goal. ACCURACY is the goal. I suppose it depends exactly what you are doing with it. What powder charge (and boolit choice) groups the...

    As long as you got fairly consistent readings, I wouldnt blame the chronograph. As said above, it is probably the test barrel used, or the cylinder gap in your revolver, or most likely a combination of the two. As long as you are getting...

    First, do you plan to shoot cast or jacketed bullets? Check with the AR guys here first. They have done most of the trial and error. Cast can sometimes be finicky. Just requires proper boolit selection. Remember the AR 10 platform usually...

    If they do, all of you that have JM Marlins will see them double in price. A used JM Marlin right now is selling for more then a new Remington.

    Actually, that's a good idea. Why the hell didn't I think of that. It's so simple. You just need an inert gas that's heavier the air. I can understand the need for cover gas over aluminum, but lead? Not sure is worth the effort but definitely worth...

    I know what you mean. Im getting very far sighted myself. Thats why I put a red dot on my Henry. Really didn't want to. But had to.

    It seems to me you will introduce more air into the mix. Therefore more oxidation. The dross that forms on the top acts as an air cap. You really don't want the impurities mixed into you boolits, do you? Proper temps and occational stirring and...

    Yep. It's a tough shot when the factory front sight completely covers the target at 100. A good scope or red dot might give the opp better results. I found the red dot to be more then adequate for the ranges I hunt.

    Try a version or two of factory loaded rounds through your chrony to see if they are comparable to your reloads. That should show if it's a chronograph problem.

    That is about the max range for a .357 at a deer. You might stretch that a little, but not much. Every one of those = dead deer.
