    Yep, the old Plum Colored Redding. I have one that is complete and still working. Mine goes back to the late 50's; I inherited it from my uncle who taught me to reload. Mine has a clear plastic cone coming out of the bottom of the measuring...

    I have a few of the French berdan corrosive primed .30 M1 ball ammo left. I bought about 300 rounds of it at a gun show around 1964 and didn't know it was berdan stuff until I fired a few of them. But I assumed they were corrosive and cleaned...

    This reminds me that I need to call my SIL and see how he did this last weekend. A friend of ours drew a much coveted buffalo tag and he was her backup shooter and more important PACK MULE. He was no doubt chosen for his massive size and muscles....

    The 7.62x51 does nothing the 30-06 can't do or better. It's main claim to fame is that it gives about the same velocity of the 30-06 up to 165 grain weight bullets and being slightly shorter, a soldier can carry a little more 7.62 ammo than 30-06. ...

    I am not an aircraft expert but I can only remember one American fighter plane that entered WW II with .30-06 machine guns, the very early Curtis P-40. The Mustang, Hellcat, Corsair and the P 47 all had .50 Brownings. The British Spitfire had .303...

    Thanks, Dutchman. I went to his site and he offers the mount for my Yugo 24/47 as well. I see one in my near future. I have been looking for awhile but the ones I could find that would fit were either cost prohibitive or stuck way up in the air...

    I picked up a few of those on a range years ago. They loaded and shot just the same as my other WW II brass. I was curious about them but never bothered to try to research them. I don't even know if I have any of them left. Mine was marked R A...

    I like elk better than beef, so in my opinion, it is just the best meat, wild has no say in it. lol I like beef better than moose, but that is not to say I couldn't live on moose either.

    You really need to go there and look around in person for several reasons. Many times in places this rural, you can buy a quarter section cheaper than what you can get ten acres for. Another reason is the internet realtors, I have seen folks buy...

    New or been there a century, ordering is ordering, period. If he put an expedited order in with a supplier that claims they can ship it out, what else does anybody think he can do. It is very possible that his only fault was a lack of communication...

"The rifle is a weapon. Let there be no mistake about that. It is a tool of power, and thus dependent completely upon the moral stature of its user. It is equally useful in securing meat for the table, destroying group enemies on the battlefield, and resisting tyranny. In fact, it is the only means of resisting tyranny, since a citizenry armed with rifles simply cannot be tyrannized."
