    I don't know what these springs are normally for. I wonder if the vendors are baffled why they are selling like hot cakes all of a sudden?

    I'm sure 41 special is cool, but I don't see why Ruger can't make a plain old 41 magnum with just a little engineering. Gary Reeder converts them to 41 mag, although he has some people that love him, some that hate his guts. Not a lot in the middle,...

    The difference is negligible. The non-discarding tail hurts the slug tremendously compared to a plain base slug/bullet, but is on par with a hollow base foster. A good comparison is the LBC sabot. Both sighted in at 100 yards, a sabot slug like the...

    Wouldn't it be easier to go up in thread size for the barrel shank? Don't give the engineers any more reason to get fancy with a simple solution.

    Forget the thumb, I have to use my pinky to get 30-30 cases all the way in a model 94. Screw the loading gate. I'm sure it can be modified to be faster for competition, ill take the Henry tube. Ill take an external hammer too. Safetys are always in...

    The deer ran nearly a mile! Good grief, the level of ridiculousness this forum. A DEER SHOT IN THE LUNGS AND RUNS A MILE IS A FAILURE! A failure on your part, the bullet? I don't know, maybe try a shoulder or neck shot if you get runners like that....

    I hope so. Ignoring all else, only on deer I have shot (about 20), 100% have gone 0-50 yards. Half or more dropped on the spot, most with shotgun slugs. I can't see any reason a 54 caliber round ball will be any different. I've been using a new...

    We get a lot of cormorant here. Not as many this year for some reason, but some years they seem as numerous as geese. We are not allowed a hunting season for them in Minnesota, but I think the southern US does have some hunting of them. I'd rather...

    mart, if you were invited to my place and had that happen, no big deal. If you came back the next year with the same rifle and load, you would be kicked out immediately. A deer that runs a mile when shot good is a failure. To think otherwise shows...

    For that cost, why don't people cast bullets of pure tin? It would still be harder to load a conical, but would at least be malleable like lead.

    I ended up buying the vice, I already had a drill press, bought a jig for a hand drill, and I'm sure more. You don't need any of it. If you have a MEC 600Jr., you already have, or need a MEC supersizer. I use the super sizer as the vice, and a hand...

    I've played with bismuth a bit, but never cast a bullet of it. The stuff is incredibly brittle, and relatively hard. I have a feeling that even if you could ram the REAL down the barrel, it would fracture the driving bands. I wouldn't even bother...

    I don't think the 41 special is modest, not in the way factory 44 special is. It's just the easy way to fit a 41 caliber into a GP100. rking22's load was right up in 41 mag territory. The finest of all deer calibers if you ask me.

    I gave up on my mag spark. It works great for 2-3 shots, then just becomes a bear to get the primers out. It might help to have a cotton swab and clean it every shot. The biggest downside is if you loose the cap, I painted mine orange. With Goex,...

    I also think a full diameter slug could be very accurate. The problem is you can choose low velocity, or a snot blasting recoil. Then there is the wadding between again. Here is a crazy idea I've had in my head. Have RMC make a custom set of brass...

    Ok Tripplebeards, I don't know you, but what you are claiming is pretty far fetched. First it was a sub 3/4 MOA slug gun, now its a muzzleloader that shoots 2 1/2" at 300 yards, with pellets no less. Not that it matters, considering it would drop...

    I always followed up a neck shot with a finisher to the head, but they are incredibly lethal. Sure, the spine is a small target, but what isn't a vital in the neck? There's the arteries, veins, throat, nerves, pretty much every part of the neck will...

    You can match that load in 45 ACP without even going above standard pressure. That's another good one where people will condone the 45 colt, but a 45 ACP "isn't ideal", even though they are the same thing.

    If there was snow on the ground, you absolutely would have found blood. I know how hard it can be to see blood on leaves.

    That's how it went for me this year. One shot, deer just fell over. I gave that deer to a family member, have yet to figure out if he ever found the entrance. Funny thing was there was blood on the snow, but nothing on the deer!

    You guys are forgetting we are talking about snow. You can see a drop of blood from 20 yards away on a white background. The OP is talking about ZERO blood or hair at all, for at least 150 yards.

    I won't claim to have that much experience, but if there was no hair, meat, or blood at the spot he shot it, and not even a drip for 150 yards on snow, I'm going to stick with it being a miss. Even a paper cut would leave a clear blood trail on snow.

    I know a lot of people who couldn't hit a deer at 150 yards from a rest if you gave them a rifle that shoots 1/2 MOA. Those kinds of people wound lots of deer. There's no help for them. I know one very personally, can't get him to the range for...

    Not on snow. I've helped track deer that turned out to be hit poor that only dripped every 25 yards until they laid down. We had some pointed bullets that didn't expand that left a pin hole through the deer. We lost a couple deer, but they both left...

    That must be fun. We only get 1 deer limit for most of the state, but I often shoot 2 through party hunting (I only keep one for myself). Thankfully a full grown MN deer provides about 75 pounds of straight meat. I don't pick through the ribs...
