    There are two types of people. Those you can trust and those you can not trust. I have learned never to give cash to someone. If they are hungry I will buy them a sandwich. I they ask for gasoline I will buy them gasoline. This stops 90% of this...

    Was the last part of the video an examination of a downed plane? Maybe shot down? It is obviously a different engine .

    Did you explain to him the difference in costs of shooting. A good jacketed bullet is nigh on 30 cents apiece or more. A cast may be as low as 2 or 3 cents depending on alloy and gas check.

    After you achieve your greatest accuracy, there is little or no cost difference in loading good ammo or the most accurate ammo. The only difference is the experimentation and knowledge to develope the better loads.

    I wish the pictures were clearer. It appears the top strap broke near the front of the cylinder then bent backwards and broke through the rear. The front is a vertical shear but the rear is angled front to rear. This indicates the pressure was...

    Never a gun but I found a mold that I forgot I had purchased. I had wanted a 45-70 for some time. I come across one at a suitable price and purchased it. I went through my dies and I found I had purchased 3 sets of 45-70 dies over the years in...

    The things I would compare are: bullet deformation- are your lead bullets being deformed whenot they hit and slide up the feed ramp? Also are you getting bullet setback? Look at a few rounds that have been feed into the chamber. Next is where the...

    I don't want to rain on the parade, but I will throw out an idea. I own Saeco molds and think they are very high quality. But in today's market, I think there is equal quality molds for less money. You may want to look at the market but that is your...

    The blue Jay's are not welcome around my place. They peck my apples and cause a lot of damage. They seem intelligent as they learn quick about a 24" metal rod protruding from a window or doorway.

    Due to my bore size I needed the .358 rf bullet for a .38/.357mag. I use a Lee six cavity. The handles are about $15.00. You may need to glue the wood handles to the metal.

    The CMP rifle grades fall within certain parameters for barrel wear. The CMP site will give you those parameters. I think each rifle from the CMP has a tag indicating barrel wear. The LMR barrels were regarded as the best barrels for accuracy and...
