    I quit doing it. WHY? because it seems like I gave most of it away. Everyone wanted ready to eat venison but most of them don't want to be bothered cooking it themselves. Anymore everything that isn't roast or steaks is ground into burger. I grind...

    yup if you cant kill deer at 300 yards with 9x its time to go to the eye doctor or take that blister pack tasco off and buy a good scope. One of the longest shots ive made on a deer was 524 with a yards according to my range finder. Gun was my 7stw....

    any gun that will shoot 10 shots into even 3/4s of an inch one day and go back the next and shoot 10 into the same group and not enlarge it is one exceptional rifle and they guy on the trigger is pretty talented to boot.

    30-40 Krag or a rethreaded and re-chambered 303 British rifle barrel would be my personal choices although both require more than simply screwing a new Mauser Large Ring barrel onto the action (indexing the extractor slot I believe would be required...

    Yes, I still believe in common sense reloading. I don't load my 400 Corbon anywhere close to its full potential either for the same reason. Shooting the 400 Corbon with 155gr SWC with light loads in a full size 1911 literally pops the brass down...

    Does anyone still have one of these old 1911 wildcat barrels or have they all gone into dust trails of history? CH4D still stocks the die sets and I've already got a 1911 in .400 Corbon that I load 155gr SWC and sized at .401 and use .38 Special...

    and the 9x23 brass has a very thick web at the base which helps since my older 38 Super barrel has the older feed ramp and link pin design which leaves a good piece of the cartridge base unsupported unlike the modern ramped barrels.

    go find some 38 Super Comp brass from Starline for you to reload. Its doesn't have the semi-rim that the 38 Super has but it has the same rim diameter as the 9x19. I did the same conversion you did but stuck with the 38 Super Comp/9x23mm cases. I...

    have you ever tried the 311410 130gr bullet from Lyman/Ideal that was designed for the M1 Carbine? its a bevel base design but should work fine if its polycoated for velocity over 1600fps. Myself, for most of my 300BLK and 30 Apache loads, I...

    that's what ive done to problem #1's. It helps but it sure doesn't turn a 2 inch gun into a sub moa gun and it does help a bit with group size especially verticle stringing is opening up your groups. .
