    yup nothing comes free. If spending an extra 65 bucks a month 12 months a year and the extra cost of the truck and maintaining it is worth it to you to tow your camper a few times in the summer then have at it. ME? ill drive a bit slower with my 1/2...

    Since we've not heard from the OP on his HV flatter shooting cast load quest in 5 years perhaps he didn't achieve his goal......?

    I guess when your talking a 50-70k truck spending another grand to swap out gears if you cant find one on the lot is pretty trivial.

    you were right when you said a gas motor would pull it. Some forget were talking v8s with 400 hp and over 400 ftlbs of torque. NOT the 200 hp slugs we had a decade ago. Put a set of 410s in the rear and you can pull what a semi could in the 60s and...

    wish I had an obscene amount of type lead. Then I wouldn't worry about it either. I don't agree on ww cutting the mustard for 1900 fps loads. At least not if you want the best accuracy. Ive been fooling a lot with the black out this summer and loads...

    I use H4895 with a dacron filler in my rifle 1873 and 1882 duplication 45-70 loads. As mentioned there is some residue but it's not been problematic. H4895 even with the dacron filler in carbine level loads doesn't generate enough psi for efficient...

    heck my pot is on a bench that's 2 or 3 feet about my bucket and a foot and half back from the edge. Youd probably have to drop a 5lb weight in it to get water to fly that far.

    probably true. Its probably why they charge us twice what a dmps or bushmaster that's just as good costs. They think were sappy enough to believe that the government picked them because there better quality. Not because at the time there were few...
