    Works, doesn't it! Nice shooting. It will also benefit your 4759 load. Drop back to the start load and work up to 1/2 gr less than the listed max. Larry Gibson

    The prosecutor can make it look like ANY ammo choice is the most evil thing ever. Reloads = Super killer custom rounds. Hunting rounds = You want to hunt people. Same as local PD = You wanna play cops and dead guys. Target rounds = So...

    John Van Gelder Plain based cast bullet bases don't melt....proven fact. The sides get "cut" or "eroded" by the high pressure gas moving at very high velocity......fact. Yes water boils at 212 degrees.....however the water has to reach that...

    I did it the other way. Once I retired I fired the leash (cell phone comp), took off the watch and buried the alarm clock on the closet shelf. Have only a land line now, life is good. :mrgreen: Well, except for the d*mn telemarketers. :-? Rick

    Hodgdon Clays (not Universal Clays) is a great 45 acp target powder. I have been using it for many years with 185 and 200 grain SWC Boolits. It's one of my favorites...but I'm beginning to think it's extinct. I haven't been able to find any for a...

    I would be a bit careful using fillers, as the "jury" is still out on that as far as "ringing" in chambers/barrels. The jury has been in a long time with the verdict. Like anything else use a wrong filler and bad things can happen. Use the...

    I don't think it will work. The case probably wont go far enough into the FCD to work.

    I'll be out Monday morning (hopefully) to test some NOE 310-165 bullets.....some over LeveRevolution powder. However, I'll be testing in the 14" twist barrel. You may not get any real benefit out of a 20" barrel with 10" twist with LeveRevolution...

    Expanman When you shoot a group to determine the firearm's group size, how many shots do you use? 3? 5? 10? A 3 shot group, especially if small, tells you nothing about accuracy potential of the load. If large the 3 shot group tells you...

    Concur with 44man; "Don't believe the 1/2" hole stuff. My boolit would work better for a very large animal but deer are small. Need some expansion. Soft in the caliber has always worked". With fredj338; " Depends on what you are hunting I...

    I've heard of but don't really know that there is a device that plays the fax number screeching sounds when you pick up. Makes the computer generated calls think it's a fax number not a voice line and they remove your number from their list. If...

    In addition to expiring & needing to be renewed the do not call list is a federal plan and does not effect calls from within your state. Rick

    Longer barrels do better if one is seeking the best accuracy at higher velocity. I recommend 26" as minimum. The longer Palma contour (3 different contour/weight) work well. For hunting a medium 26" sporter weight barrel with 14" twist should get...
