    The greater area at the base of bullet should reduce, even, peak pressure. The .30-40 was loaded with bullets of or approximating those weights, and that data would surely be safe. It'd be a slightly reduced load; but in a Krag or a roller or for...

    I can neither help nor think of a more perfect cast bullet cartridge, with that nice long neck and about ideal case capacity. Even if you've a problem finding data, with that cartridge and rifle it's an enviable problem to have.

    Salt being sodium chloride, your chlorine level from a blood test is a quick an dirty check for hyponatremia being a simple and tasty to remedy dietetic issue or something more. New hypertension patients, sometimes, do too good of a job reducing...

    Landy88 replied to a thread 3 bulls in Hunting with CB's
    Congrats. With whole elk in the trucks, those darn cast boolits cheated you out of half of your fun - carrying them out of the leg-breaking timber tangle that they dashed into a pack full at a time. Nice harvest.

    Rcmavieric, I respect your no compromises approach. Instead of limiting your loading kit, just get a bigger and better toolbox with wheels.

    Tex, What an amazing and great interview to have got to do. Those pilots did so much that transformed aviation, warfare, and history in such a short span of time.

    Part of aging is draining and drying. Venison that has an organ meat taste to it didn't drain and dry enough. One season spent, unsuccessfully, hunting horns for the wall left me very late in the season taking a very prime doe for the freezer to...

    The Slippery Slope Fallacy is a real logical fallacy, and we can't fall into the trap of it as our only defense of any particular "gun right." The Slippery Hope Fallacy is, also, a real political fallacy; and we must never sacrifice the other...

    Landy88 replied to a thread 9.3x57 R in Cast Boolits
    Thanks. I ordered that mold and will try similar in my own old Husqy. Others had told me of their poor results with Mak bullets, but I think that your long seating and grease groove crimp must be the trick that they missed. This will be a...

    Hmm, you might have a case of 57mm case addiction. If one has to have an addiction, that's good one - a grand old case and cartridge family.

    Landy88 replied to a thread 9.3x57 R in Cast Boolits
    Your cape gun reads like a great find - add me to the list of picture beggars. Also, tell me more about your rabbit load with the Makarov bullets. I shoot the rimless 9.3x57; and, while I know that unlike the other 57R cases this one isn't...

    Landy88 replied to a thread Favorite meatloaf in Cookin' Recipe's
    The hack for oatmeal in meatloaf or meatballs is using the quick or instant kinds. It saves you the precooking or grinding and gives a lighter texture more like breadcrumbs. They, though, make awful oatmeal so keep the carton of quick for add-ins...

    Jeepguy242 beat me to it on the wrapped and grilled recomendation, but I stay spicy with chipotle powder. Recommendations, aside; yours reads like a very tasty skillet of shrimp.

    To complicate 8mm even more, while the military switched up to .323" in orderly fashion, sporting riflemakers used whichever bore suited their fancy until at least WWII; and the Brit's .318, actually, uses .333"s.

    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.
