    Off a rest, or offhand? They do make big holes! At 75 yards that shows just how effective these slugs can be, and that gun could easily hit at 125-150 yards.. When you look at the Brown Bess Musket which was the main battle weapon of the British...

    Not having the proper tool, that's definitely not what I called them as I kissed my sore finger.

    You would have problems with the revolver in this area. Only one chamber at a time is permitted to be loaded at a time, due to a stupid accident by a pilgrim a few years ago. Managed to shoot himself putting the gun in a shoulder holster.

    I was asked a question a year ago, and have researched it ever since. Apparently it doesn't exist, but thought I would ask here. Has anyone ever heard of "leftover bacon"?

    mold maker replied to a thread lawn rolling in Our Town
    I thought sure this was going to be instructions on decorating with toilet paper. You know, there is a proper way to throw a roll so it unwinds and hangs on every branch, or at least thats what I'm told. Not that I have any experience.

    Where did this sea of clover come from? My lawn was manicured Friday and again this morning it looks like it snowed. Are aliens sewing it at night?

    They all come with cylinder bores IE; .732-.735 This one now has a choke from .745 to .735. The back boring decreases the friction on the wad as it travels down the bore. I don't know exactly what that does for you but the gun patterns 00 Buck...

    If you aren't going to load a bunch, then what you are proposing is a good way to do it. The BPI Roll Crimper works great, and for <$25 you can't beat it. The rest of loading a .410 can be done with a nail and a piece of dowel. Might want to...

    This subject comes up alot. This picture of the Federal Slug and wad shows something I have thought about but not talked about very much. keeping the projectile centered in the bore during firing. I consider this to be the primary factor in smooth...

    OK guys,,, I shot Rimfire Silhouette today with my R1 and those JSP Monster Pellets. I had no problem knocking down chickens at 40M and Pigs at 50M as long as I could actually hit them. I don't shoot this gun very well and only managed to hit 6...

    GP: been there and done that. None of the "basic" tools will produce a good looking .410 shell. The problem is getting the crimp to close right and none of them do it well at all, and if you do succeed in getting a decent looking shell you...

    Mega: The buckshot thing is all about patterning the gun so people can see exactly what to expect from their guns. We mostly shot paper targets with it. Whereas we only shot steel targets with bird shot at 15 and 20 yards or slugs at 35 and 50...

    I can't recommend the Vang Comp Barrel Mods enough. It completely transformed this gun from a Shoulder/Face Beater to a smooth shooting gun that is much easier to run and shoot accurately. I know there are people who think this is a bunch of...

    I can't see the anvils well enough to be sure, but it looks exactly like the ones I have to set grommets in leather and fabric. These seem to have adjustable grip stops on one handle. The ones for hose clamps have crossed groves in the anvils to...
