    Ithaca figured out with it's "Deerslayer" shotguns that some choke in the barrel helped with slug accuracy . My Browning Miroku Buck Special is .730 to .715 at the muzzle and is pretty accurate with slugs. My 20" M500 is pretty accurate with...

    There is another way to achieve tight buckshot patterns that doesn't involve reinventing the load. It is called the Vang Comp Process and involves having your barrel modified by Hans Vang. This involves lengthening the forcing cone, back-boring...

    I didn't explain myself very well. It takes a much larger wire size to prevent excessive voltage drop at 250 ft with 20 amp load than the size of wire to just carry 20 amps.

    If you want some " modest loads " 1,100 - 1,400 fps a can of Universal ( it is a cousin to Alliant Unique ) would work well for you. If you want to speed things up a bit 1,400 - 1,850 fps, H - 4198 is your friend with cast bullets in the...

    Velocity is close enough to the .375 H&H, it would most likely fit the bill. You WOULD be firing more than just a few rounds.

    Guys: the way these different guns recoil is all about the weight and barrel length. 329's are like 26 oz, the L frame M69 is about 36 oz and the MG is a little more. The ones with the shortest barrels are going to be snappier. (I hate that word) My...

    LIke has been said, it's amazing now much bad advice you're getting about size of wire based on amp load. In this case, amps don't matter, voltage drop is the thing to worry about. Any wire size the doesn't drop too much voltage will more than...

    I don't see it. but I don't have a Gen 5, all mine are 3rd Gen and have shot countless lead boolits. At the ranges you would shoot guns like this IE: "Conversational Distances" 3-25 yards maybe out to 50. Minor differences in accuracy are...

    The thing with S&W revolvers is all the big ones hit the web of your hand really hard and this gets old fast. With MY m29 I could shoot 12 rounds of full power loads and I was done. Put Pachmayer grips of that one and it was much better. Fast...
