    Some just shoot like that. I've never got good bench accuracy from my smoothbores. I had an Interarms 7X57 that wouldn't shoot from a bench, but was tack driving deadly off hand.

    This is a copy of the hat Charles Bent wore when he was running Bent's Fort. John Stetson also used it as his original pattern, Boss of the Plains. Most hats companies sell under that name, but are nothing like the orginal. 4" brim, 3 3/4 " crown. I...

    I tried a batch of Rich Pierce's Burlington Chert flints. Good price, they worked. But. I got a LOT more wear on the frizzen than with English or French flints. Chert is harder, and I suspect that is what the Kentucky flints are, as true...

    That sounds like a .338 Federal.

    My point on hot water was it seems to set the fouling harder, than if you use lukewarm water.

    For a 300 yard bench rifle, I would go with .38 caliber. Read Ned Roberts!

    waksupi replied to a thread Turkey recipe help in Our Town
    For a bit of smoke flavor, no matter what I'm cooking on the BBQ, I just cut a few small branches from the nearby tree, and put them on the coals. I can reach a maple tree from my deck, so that's what I use. Makes a great steak.

    Harry Pope made a lot of gain twist barrels, as did other barrel makers of the day. Harry determined he couldn't tell a lick of difference in how well they shot.

    With that large of a wound channel, I would suggest hardening your alloy some.

    Quite honestly, If I was starting with a 8X57, I would leave it as-is. I consider the chambering to be almost as good as the .358 Win, my only preference being weighed by the availability of .308 brass pretty much anywhere. Some areas may not have...

    I solved that by renting a reamer and lengthening the chambers to accommodate long bullets.

    waksupi replied to a thread To All in Hunting with CB's
    I've always disliked shooting a doe with a fawn at side. However, they will be kicking the fawn loose to wean within days, as the natural cycle will put the does into breeding reception. The fawns will stay pretty much separated from the does for...

    After years of experience, I'm sure the only ones who benefit from cover scents are the guys selling it. You will not fool the nose of a buck or a bull. Stay downwind, and move slow.

    It was an ordeal getting the hat! I ordered it in February, lock down came around, and couldn't pick it up until late May! 100% beaver, best I've ever owned. I've had cars I paid less for! A trivia point, the guy who built is is a descendant of Bill...

    Short version. I looked out the window. There was the buck. I shot him. He rolled down the hillside within about 40 yards of the meat pole. I'm too crippled up to go out and chase them, and that was plenty far to move him. Three years in a row,...
