    Webmonkey nailed it IMO. Buy a new box for the Taurus, keep them marked and separated. They should fire form to fit.

    I believe that might have been huntersdog that had them for sale. But I believe he found someone local to take them. Good luck hunting. Set the money aside now, and about 50% more than you think you'll need. Next time you find one strike fast...

    Magtech brass runs around a buck a piece. .444marlin brass can run higher than that. .303 british works but takes some work. I had to spin them, thin down the rim a bit. But then fireformed they work fine. As to dies, I don't try to resize...

    I built my M16 from pieces. Wide selection of parts and relatively easy from inexpensive parts. I pieced together a highly accurate 6.5 Grendel with Brownells assembly instructions. I built a light weight hunting rig. That wood furniture looks nice.

    I have a fistful of the H&R Handi's in both rifle and shotgun. But they don't make those anymore. On the plus side I recently found a brand new .45 colt handi barrel here for what I thought was a reasonable price. I have looked hard at the...

    I sit on the fence between 1 and 2. Which way I lean depends on the application. I will never spend more for optics than I did for the gun. 1/3 to 1/4 of gun price is my target. That means that I have Simmon's 4x12x40 scopes on my Handi...

    I look like a bum at my local range. I walk around pick up all the brass I can use, I even dig through the trash cans. I have permission of course and only pick up what I can use. There are lots of people that do it and saves the RSO from having to...

    GhostHawk replied to a thread Happy 10/22 day! in Rimfire Area
    Mine dates back to about 1972. Shot it with iron sights for 20 years and then the eyes would just not keep up. Put a Bushnell 3x9x40 full size deer rifle scope on it and she really hit the mark for a couple more decades. Still have her, keep her...

    I tried some alcohol, but I grabbed the wrong one, got 50/50. Half mixed with the alox, half sat on the bottom and acted like water. So I added a shot of mineral spirits, and since I had nothing to lose a chunk of JPW. Shook the **** out of it,...

    I hear that on bills. I loose 2/3 of my check to child support. Even splurging 60 bucks is tight. My wife gives me a monthly play allowance. When we decide to buy more guns she makes me justify and prioritize those guns. Then we save or wait till...

    Water is scattered around in puddles and the area is really a mix of dry and muddy patches. The two spots I marked on the map normally hold water. The one in the field is like a huge puddle, then the other is a trail that is flooded like a creak,...

    I looked at those images. What got me curious was 2 points. What are they eating, and where? Where are they drinking? Are there small puddles scattered? Or only one source? If you can find where they are moving, then find the right time to be...
