    less amounts of a faster powder. or more of a too slow powder. I'm assuming this is an AR so never mind the too little of a too fast powder, and focus on slowing the powder down. 4227 at 10 grs would be right about below the speed of sound.

    be aware it has been snowing up here already. I know that word is foreign to most people below the I-70 corridor. but I have had almost an inch on the ground today down here in the valley, it stuck pretty well up higher and was there still when...

    learn to shoot/control the moving gun. you start pulling the trigger before it gets to the point of impact you want. but you approach the dot from the same direction each time. in other words work with the shake by having the muscles contracting...

    it's doable in most places out here. most are draws to get tags and you have to be careful of some units. they like to sell 650 tags in areas that are totally weather dependent and have safe pathways through private property. you can squeeze in...

    Yikes. I was really close to buying a jug of this powder back in the bad old days. I'm glad I never got around to it, or I'd have had a little headache on my hands before I let the credit card company deal with it.

    those are oxide inclusions. you reduce oxides with fire or an oxygen free barrier on the surface of the alloy. you most likely won't get it all back in and will remove some. but you can turn the heat down to help keep it from forming. and not...

    initially I thought OOB too. but the bolt head has to rotate and come back into place for the firing pin to reach the primer. that plus the brass around the mouth of the chamber. the AR is pulling the case out of the chamber while the case is...

    mine seems to like the 314 also but it dotes on H-322 with a filler of dryer lint. I usually shoot 7 shot groups though. they all like the 175gr swaged bullet made from 5.7 cases on top of 35.6 grs of 4895 but I gots no scope so I keep the...

    I'm seeing too much pressure. usually a bullet that falls in the case isn't enough to make that happen. one that was shoved down there by another would. I have only seen 3 other AR ka-booms, they all have followed a re-charge with the handle....

    you'd be okay if they were in Idaho. Wyoming not so much and don't touch the horns until the body's land east of the continental divide. I don't know about Montana but I think you'd be okay having some or all of the animal.

    the sawdust. carbon is easy to get into the alloy and it does wonderful things for it. but it surely sucks to remove. it's best to not stir it underneath, but to pour the alloy slowly through the layer on top.

    so does the old clay's, and 4227. heck the new Universal is Purple. bad powder gives off gucky fumes you can see them emanate from the can. and it gets all clumpy, wet like even, or with a red dust.
