    My Marlin has been relined with a faster twist liner so my results may not match yours. I have a Lee group buy mold that is very similar to the NOE 260-80-RF that is probably the most accurate bullet I've tried in my rifle. It's fairly short,...

    I don't wet tumble, but with my Lyman vibrator I use an old deep fryer basket. Just upend the tumbler into the basket that's sitting in a plastic tray and shake the devil out of it. Works great

    That's exactly what I did. Took a buggered up 30-30 Marlin and sent it to Jes at 35caliber.com (the link above), it came back in a week or so as the easiest project I've ever done. I can't recommend him enough, good to work with, great metalworking,...

    3 biggest deer I've seen in my 65 years were killed with a 243. Mine was the smallest at 173 Boone and Crockett points. The furthest I've ever seen one run was killed with a 130 out of my 270, ran 120 yards with the heart blown up. Some of the...

    Years ago I shot that bullet at 1950 fps out of a Win 94 and killed several deer over a few year period. Alloy was WW water dropped, back when everything you read was harder is better. I can't remember anything that ran over 50 yards, some dropped...

    That old rifle had been rode hard and put away wet many times before I bought it. The stock had been "refinished" partially, basically muddied up the original finish. You can see some of the rough area by the forward barrel band that was rusted,...

    I have a M336 Marlin that was rebored by JES to 38-55. The easiest rifle to find loads for I've ever tried. It won't be for sale as long as I'm above ground.
