    I reload for 36 calibers. I have bins with dies on top, brass in next bin down, bullets and moulds below that. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk

    I've made 35 WCF brass that way. It ended up being a little short, but functional. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk

    I've seen this formula before - but just wanted to clarify. For a 15" sight radius at 100 yards that is 2" off the mark, is it: 15"x100(12"x3') _________________ 2" ?? Thank you. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk

    Mine shoots a 3" group with 61grains of 2f goex and a 405 grain hollow based bullet I can't use solid based projectiles because of a skip in the rifling just ahead of the chamber. I've always pulled my cleaning rod before shooting at paper -...

    Good to know! I have around 200 that I have reloaded several times since fall. None seem to be a problem after 4-5 loadings with Lee 0.358' - 158grain boolits. Wonder if there's some variability in lots? Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk

    I'm sorry to hear about your experience! Short of a loose reticle, your post sounds like a loose mount or rings. I can't say I am a huge Bushnell fan, but I think your optic attachments are likely the culprit. Fwiw, Primary Arms makes a nice,...

    If you only have a little to do, a slow cooker is the simplest method. Get the fat cold, cut it into the smallest pieces possible (do NOT use a food processor.....bad experience makes the best lessons), put it in the slow cooker on the lowest...

    I would start by stoning off anything that will catch a cotton ball roughness-wise. Your springs look good! Don't ignore the hammer interface, it is generally rough also. Lube the snot out of it before you put it back together. Hopefully you...

    I have used alfalfa or even grass hay in the winter before. I'm in the northern states where hay is plentiful and grain is scarce! The difference between the pork is tremendous, the store bought pork is bland and textureless to me. I have used...

    I got the grazing idea from an old book. The refuse beer thing I got from living in South America and the Caribbean early in my career. And I can tell you - if those fellas wouldn't drink it - it's definitely refuse beer! I used distillery grain...

    Just to clarify - you'll shoot 2 that are touching, then several scattered across the target, then another 2 touching later? Are the first two from a clean bore always in the close group? One would have to surnise a change in headspace or other...

    We've been doing something a little different the past 5 years or so. We let them graze grass and dig (while feeding waste products) until they're 175# +/-. Then push them hard on ground barley and peas. This idea came from a farm book from the...

    I've found that the original (ish) type load of 150 grain bullet over Unique has worked out for me. I use a Lyman #311466 gas check for around 1800fps. Around when the 1895 Winchester went over the Russians had started using a 148gr bullet at...
