    My favorite way to catch them was with a fly rod, using a scrap of red wool on the hook. My worst experience doing frogging, was I had stuck a knife through it's head to kill it. I always cut the skin around the back of the head, then used...

    We've noticed the grouse population is down here in Montana the past few years. Feral cats get them around my cabin, but up at higher elevation the turkeys don't overlap territory, they are all down low. Lions take a lot of deer, but doubt they mess...

    In an Encore, why would 357 Max exceed 35 Herrett? The Herrett case has more capacity. You are exceeding SAAMI specs for the 357 Max and could do it with the 35 Herrett also. I am not willing to go there, by the way. Case length: 35 Herrett -...

    There are in Michigan. Bottle neck handgun cartridges are not allowed in the non-rifle (southern MI) portion of the state. I have no idea about the other straight wall states.

    Dad had a (then new) M61 in .22 Mag when they first came out. Nice little rifle. I had a M62A Winnie and both left me. Last year I located another M62A and it won't leave. Love shooting the lightweight pumps. Great bullfrog harvesters. Now if I...

    Lyman has all kinds of data for Unique in light loads. I have used H110 but don't recommend it. 2400's a no-brainer./beagle

    I have a 30 Herrett (10” Contender), 30-30 (H&R and lever action), 357 Max (H&R), and a 35 Rem (lever action). The 30 Herrett and 30-30 are equivalent but the 30 Herrett gets to the same spot with less powder so less recoil. Case forming was...

    I love frog legs. Years ago, a friend and I got over a hundred one night. A camp fire, and lots of beer later, we finished them off.

    Years ago I picked up a bunch of Lyman ends and pieces - included was the primer pocket cleaner and primer pocket reamer. I use the reamer on military brass and on S&B brass. Once and done. Yes, it chucks in my drill motor.

The solid soft lead bullet is undoubtably the best and most satisfactory expanding bullet that has ever been designed. It invariably mushrooms perfectly, and never breaks up. With the metal base that is essential for velocities of 2000 f.s. and upwards to protect the naked base, these metal-based soft lead bullets are splendid.

Forget everything you know about loading jacketed bullets. This is a whole new ball game!
