    Lube is a friction modifier. I have herd sugestions that friction is good for accuracy. Thats why super slick lubes hurt accuracy. Powder coating is super slick. So a lube that adds a bit of friction or tackyness. Could in theory add accuracy.

    Way I figure it the Eastern Mountain Lion may have gone into hiding for a century or so. But it has recently figured out that most of those humans are no longer carrying guns out east. So it is safe to go back to their old hunting grounds and...

    If you want fast you can use an instant pot pressure cooker to speed things up. Otherwise I go with a hambone and 1 to 2 lbs of Pinto's, soak overnight, rinse well, put in a slow cooker. Season as you see fit. Me I mostly leave mine pretty plain,...

    You don't. Manuals, what I consider "good" sources list starting and max loads, list velocity, and pressure. Data that does not come with such information simply is not trusted as much. The other answer is you don't, but experience has...

    I have avoided going to the dark side. Personally I prefer .20 or .22 for outdoors. .177 is fine for target or birds. But the bigger pellets put a lot more knockdown on furred critters.
