    What ever you can shoot the most accurate and able to get several shots off as quick as possible will work. Just keep shooting the gun till it’s empty or the bear drops. The only way your going to stop a charging bear on its tracks is to hit it in...

    Larry Gibson replied to a thread Lead:tin ratio in Cast Boolits
    20-1 means there is 8 ounces of tin in 10 lbs of lead. 16 - 1 alloy means there is 10 ounces of tin in 10 lbs of lead. Or, for 20 lbs of 20-1 alloy lead add 4 more ounces of tin. Not exact to the nth degree but close enough.

    Yep, mine is marked W for Winchester. I'm guessing we will have to measure the leaf/blade and go off the measurement? It would be better to replace the blade than aiming below the heart of a deer and blowing out the backbone at close range. Going to...

    If I remember I think there might be a number on the inside base of my blade when I pushed it out. Probably telling me what height it’s is. I’ll wait till someone chimes in. I’m sure by changing the height of the front sight the ladder peep...

    Wait for the 12" twist barrel. The 8" is made for long heavy sub-sonic bullets and for really long heavy VLD type bullets for long range shooting.....neither of those uses is on your radar. The 12" twist will be best, especially with cast bullets.

    Been using mine for traplines. I popped a rabbit with it the other day hiding in the brush at 10 yards right between the eyes. Those Winchester 333’s are destructive. It exited in the stomach and zipped a 3” hole in it with everything pouring out. I...

    The only thing I don’t like with brass molds is I get tinning every time I use it. I have seasoned my mold by heating it in the oven a dozen times plus in a row by placing it in my oven and it doesn’t matter. I cast really hot so tinning will always...

    If you give up on it I’ll trade you for my 1941 long branch sporter! Otherwise I’d tell you to free float the barrel and bed the action. Also lighten the trigger.
