    Good deal. If you ever take it apart, take a picture of the trigger guard. Maybe they have an upgrade over that cone spring mine has.

    I use a ProChrono Digital, it works fantastic with shotguns. The best thing is to shoot close, maybe 3'-4', and on a cloudy day don't use the sky screens at all. There is always a chance a wad smacks it, but I haven't had it happen yet. I did...

    People who want accuracy beyond 75 yards want rifling. Not center of mass, but hunting accuracy is very tough to come by in a smooth bore past 75 yards. I like Federal, they are probably my favorite ammo brand, but Brenneke invented a better slug in...

    I don't own one, but got to fiddle and shoot one of the newer production guns from a few months ago. I was entirely impressed with it. The owner had both a Glock 34 and this SIG P365 at the time, but has since sold the Glock. The Glock 34 is THE...

    There's LOTS AND LOTS of internet rumor. Put bluntly, they are full of ****. I've been at it for enough years now to know what is typical, and while I don't doubt someone out there has shot MOA groups, there is no such thing as a MOA slug gun. You...

    If you have a chronograph, you don't really have to wing it. Loading a regular 1 1/8 oz load should be easy, you probably have to add a tiny bit more powder than with a plastic wad, but not a big deal.

    The only 3" hull my manual lists for fold crimp is Federal. If you trim to 2 3/4", I show 28.5 grains universal clays for a 2 3/4" Fiocchi. They are also close enough to Rio, I would feel comfortable using that data. Best choice is to just buy a...

    I'm sorry if I wasn't clear. They took the gun, and spent weeks trying ammo until they got one to pass the test. They did absolutely nothing to the gun, didn't even run a cleaning rod through it like I asked. If they had, it would have been so clear...

    I never had any problem getting nitro cards in by pushing them in sideways, then straitening them as I seat them. Fiber wads go through my wad finger same as plastic wads.

    Called Paul today, it turns out their standard at 25 yards is 3", and after trying multiple brands of ammo, got mine to pass. I can't even respond to that. That right there tells you everything you need to know about Smith and Wesson. I...

    I've never seen a whole manual dedicated to such a thing, I've seen some that had a section for them. You can replace fiber wads for plastic wads, and the pressure will be the same or lower. I'm sure there are some exceptions to that. This would be...

    Can you give more details? Surely that's not a 32 long, and that's a stout load even for the 32 h&r. On par with a good 45 acp load is impressive.

    The weirdest part about looking at pictures like this, I all of a sudden smell guts. It's a good and bad smell at the same time. Great job, I don't know how you could possibly ask any more from a bullet if it exited. If it didn't I'd still take that...

    I rarely admit it, but that's half the reason I buy anything. As for the springs, I'll probably end up selling them in 3 packs, one of each weight. Price will be $7.25 plus shipping (should be less than $2 in an envelope) for all 3 springs. It...

    After coming this far, I can say I stand by what my original post said. If you didn't like the H&R trigger, you won't like the Henry. H&R was better out of the box. I won't say what's possible with Henry's, but the list of gunsmiths that will do a...

    I don't think you will ever get the chance to own one then. None of the lower cost rifles are even close to a 3# crisp trigger. This Henry never will be, the Ruger american isn't, the Savage axis isn't, the H&R's weren't. We should definitely expect...

    Big totes for wads, smaller totes for fillers like felt and fiber wads, 5 gallon buckets for hulls, shot in metal ammo cans. I just put my presses on a shelf. Everything else just finds an open spot. I'm not very well organized, but I can usually...

    Ok, I wish I could show better pictures, but I'll try and explain how the hammer works. There is a metal bar between the hammer spring, and the hammer itself. The metal bar has lobes on it, that mate up to the hammer. With spring pressure, this...

    Can you even get TSS in 4 buck? It would be a waste if you could. With the real stuff 18 g/cc, I'd be looking at #2. You better have deep pockets though, you could buy 5 chokes for the price of a single pound.

    Remember the only structural differences between the 500 and 590 is a metal trigger guard, and metal safety. I recommend changing either one to a ProMag safety if you want real thumb purchase. The standard one is fine, but the ProMag is better. As...

    I cast hotter than most people, I've kind of settled on 775 F as my standard. With very large hollow points and wheel weight alloy, I've only managed shattered bullets in my experience. Most of the time, I don't think it's a big deal. One combo I...

    Are you guys sure on that load data? I've ran the Lee 170 grain up to 29.5 grains with 3031, and I think that was barely over 2000 fps from my 20" barrel. I seated to the crimp groove and crimped. If you are scared to run 27 grains, I would think...

    I hope that wasn't a 357 mag... Do the 357 mag versions shoot high too? I own the 327 federal version, and I've tried from 100-150 grain bullets, and there is plenty of adjustment for this caliber. It's really dumb they didn't use the quick...

    If you want a 20" fully rifled barrel and iron sights, that pretty much narrows it down to the 870. I guess you have to ask yourself, is the rifled barrel really for hunting/defense or just fun? Like I said, you can get turkey models for cheaper...

    I doubt a guy who cant, or doesn't want to buy a bunch of choke tubes has the money to spend $5 per shot on hevishot. I sure don't. Patterning would be best, but I'll say dollars to donuts a full choke will throw a coyote lethal pattern at 40 yards.

    40 yards isn't that far, and a Full choke will be what you want. I never owned a 20 gauge, but it is worth a look if you can get BB instead of 3 buck. For all I know 3 buck patterns great in 20 gauge, something to keep in mind.
