    I would have to take it apart just for the fun of it,and if you can't fix it then you are not out anything.

    Yeah,I guess the guns have been flying off the shelves..I have been enjoying the AR a good bit.I have added a lot of stuff to it,because a lot of it is stuff I had on hand,but I did buy some cheap flip up sights just for it.I now have a little...

    Your Wetherby Mag is going to make short work of a pound of powder,but if you are set on one for all I reckon IMR4350 would be alright,probably a hair slow for the 30-30,but would work well with the magnum

    I cleaned between each shot for the first 10,but I just used #9 ,and a few patches .I did not use ammonia cleaner.It was a little time consuming,but I had nothing better to do anyways.

    The Freedom line of Leupolds seem to be hard to beat for value.I have also noticed several great deals VX1,and Riflemans on EBay lately.I think it is because of the Freedom.I almost bought one last week,but got a VX1 used from EBay for $134.30...

    Elroy replied to a thread Walmart online gun catalog in Our Town
    A member of the late Sam Walton family would be more likely to semi secretly own a online gun business than actually have one under the Walmart name,in much the same way that Lowes likes to claim they are not owned by Walmart.

    You are correct it does have the 1-9 twist.I ordered a good bit of that cheap Norma Tac from Bud's just to play with a little,and to have on hand for an emergency,and it shoots better than one would think considering the low price..I ended up buying...

    I normally do break in the barrel on a new rifle,but I keep it simple.I start with a nice clean bore,shoot,and run a wet brush ,and a dry patch through it after each of the first two shots,and then do the same twice more after after shooting...

    I would miss reloading if I ever stopped,but I don't exactly enjoy it.I do enjoy shooting,and appreciate accuracy,and was very surprised that a cheap AR15 has the potential for decent accuracy,so I intend to load for it.I just slapped one of those...

    I almost bought that little Howa 223 they had for $329 because I have heard the brand is well thought of.I thought it was ugly due to the grayish green stock,and the lips around the mag well,but I think it is made like that to take AR mags.I may be...
