    I really like the idea of recreating the great old small game rounds in a much easier loading straight cased form. While I see that the 25ACP is, here, meant to remain the ersatz parent case; I must wonder aloud - Wouldn't going to .257" make...

    Yes, I'm very impressed by their out of the box edge, especially for the price.

    Landy88 replied to a thread RCBS RS press in Reloading Equipment
    Reloader's Special had a better marketing ring than did Junior Reloader. Back when I first started loading, by buying one, RCBS packaged these presses and all of the basic essentials, including a coupon for your choice of a die set for common...

    The greater practical accuracy of rifles and longer typical ranges of use make an even more critical eye during bullet inspection and sorting worthwhile.

    The relationship between dog and man is so old, strong, and vital to both; that I am not sure that we, actually, lose them in the way of other things. Each of our dogs are so etched on our minds and hearts that they are always with us.

    Duck country is a lot more accessible than elk country, and scouting for elk is not very doable in the few days that you mention. Barring a source (paid guide or very knowledgeable and generous local mentor) of detailed local knowledge, I'd look...

    That's what I went with, given like advice here, for an ACP do it, almost, all and an LC useful, if not as comprehensively so as for the ACP, mold.

    Good news: Improvement comes quickly. I'm new, too; and while my first session was 50/50 keepers to "remelters" buy just my third it was down to 6/94. Drilled ladles can work VERY well and be easy with which to learn casting. Bad news: Molten...

    There's a Thai salad of cabbage, cucumber, onion, carrot, green beans, and chilies dressed with vinegar, sesame oil, sugar, and garlic that I love; and this reads like this exotic's comfy country cousin. I've got to try this. I think I'll take a...

    I've done the same on the other side of the .358's capacity with 3031 in the .35W and .350RM with the 31 grain charge suggested in an old Al Miller (A big .350RM fan.) article. It's accurate and shoots to the POA at 25yds with the rifles zeroed at...

    Your MGP round, all of these quibbling details aside, is a very good solution to fitting a viable sporting and cast friendly round in AR15s and other actions that were designed for the diminutive .222R family. With all of these AR rounds that...

    The .35R is a different and larger diameter case than the .30R and the rest of that family of old Remington cartridges.

    Yes, the ML twist at 1-28 is only 1/2 as fast as the 1-14 that works so well in the .35 cartridge rifles. Checking this linked twist calculator, that gives either twist or velocity if given the other; even that short 200 grain cast bullet won't be...

    I'll look into and test that method, if I can't find a single sabot to do it. Thanks.

    Does anyone make such a sabot? What were your experiences? It hit this .35 nut that I could, likely, hunt all though MZ and 'regular' deer seasons with the same ballistics with a 50 to 35 sabot MZ load. My 350RM or 35W with 358-200s as my...

    Evilbay? If not at their .au section their .com has them from several sellers. Ebay itself ships internationally, now, for sellers, who simply ship their sold goods to an Ebay center.

    Also buying, as one post implied, or casting? If buying, alloy and hardness may be fixed, as very few commercial casters offer multiple choices -- maybe this is the excuse you need to start casting.

    Landy88 replied to a thread "OLD" Hunting Clothes in Clothing
    You've a golden opportunity to ask her to make you a new one: "Dearest wife you made that with your own hands, and I can't be without one that you made." Maybe, it's why I'm single; but I'm sneaky enough to hide the old one and, then, have two.
