    LB: I've been curious about those DGS slugs. I was given 5 of them by the outfit that originally made them from Italy at the SHOT Show a few years ago. They are identical to the DGS Slugs that BPI sells now but the wads are Red. AT Front Sight...

    My Standard Round Ball Load is also my Standard Trap Load. It is an old style AA hull with 20 gr of Green Dot, Win 209 and WAA12 wad with either 1 1/8 oz of shot, or a .662 round ball with a 1/4" felt wad or 9 00 balls. The shot column is the...

    I fought the battle some years back. The RCBS seating die won't accept bullets more than .452. I got an extra Lyman 45 ACP seating die on Ebay and could seat .454 bullets without any problems.

    That will require the cooperation of your intended target. Most times these things are come as you are events. Time will be of the essence.

    Have you seen the "Ravin Crossbow?" They advertise 3" groups at 100 yards! which for a Crossbow is unheard of. I'm pretty sure we can get that good with our Smooth Bore Shotguns, we just have to find the right projectile. The problem with...

    Those are full metal jacketed. I have a 45ACP my dad brought back from the Army when he carried a 1911 that is identical.

    There is much to see, do and eat in Santa Fe. The fall after the summer tourist season is a great time to go. I have been there many times and will do back, God willing. In fact it is my favorite town in this country, but I am a squirrely kind of...

    The British 200 grain load you spoke of is a 38 S&W round and not 38 Special. There was a 200 grain blunt round nose 200 grain lead bullet load in the 38 Special that was called (I think) a Super Police Load. Frankly these heavy blunt nose 38...

    30calflash If your Marlin has a 20" barrel then 200 yards is realistic with the 150s using LvR powder. With the 160 FTX Hornady 250 is very doable. If you've a 24" barrel then 300 yards is certainly possible. With a 20" barrel expect...

    You have asked a valid question and one I have pondered on. There are videos out there showing standard factory target wadcutters giving great penetation in gel. These little lead kegs are moving along at 650 or so fps. So, why soup them up to 850...

    Sheesh: the gun weighs 9.25 lbs empty. When full it is more like 11-12 lbs. It doesn't kick very much at all. Randy

    I will shoot my 20" Mossberg at 100 yards with Federal Low Recoil Slugs off the bench and see what it does. I got 2.5" at 50 yards offhand so maybe there's more there that I just don't know about? Really the good thing about these shotguns is...

    Ditto on the above. For what you want to do that bullet will work just fine. The moulds are inexpensive and work well. Hard to argue with all that. Randy

    Reloading on a progressive loader is pretty much the same thing as running a Turret Lathe. The end result is a completed part. The rule in the machine shop for producing parts is, "Find out what works,,, and do that." The same holds true for...

    I got to play with another one of these guns at an LGS the other day. I got a really look at it, and fondle it. The reason for the short stroking is the position of the fore end in relation to the Pistol grip. It is closer than a conventional Pump...
