    My revolver and rifle prefer different loads. You can shoot the same load in both, but working up what works best for each gun is the best route.

    That's a gawdawful countersink he cut for the vent liner. You get what you pay for! The general opinion of most other builders is, Jackie can take $700 worth of parts, and make you a fine $300 gun.

    Our local Bi-mart had the CCI A-17 stuff on sale for $29.99 per 200. Cheapest I've seen it anywhere. Am thinking that the ammo companies would be wise to offer a low velocity version of this round. This is what's needed to prevent excessive meat...

    Do work for the company that makes the one that helps you fix the car. They're a lot more than $100.00 extra but if you do enough snooping around on Internet, you can usually come up with what you are looking for just for investing your time. When...

    Before any of us knew that shooting short cartridges in longer Chambers wasn't conducive to good accuracy, we used to use them to good effect on all sorts of happless critters. They were 55¢ per box of 50. Longs were 65¢ and Long Rifles were 75¢. ...

    We've got a lot of griz and black bear activity here, too. Friend wants me to go shoot one out of his apple trees. Problem is, they only come at night, and I don't need the hassle of accidentally killing a griz.

    If the finish is completely cured, you will leave no steel wool particles in the finish. I finished a lot of very expensive exhibition grade stocks with steel wool where such a blemish would be disaster. Never a problem.

    I use some Bullplate Lube on the mold. Careful application with a Q tip. Keep it out of the cavity. I think synthetic chainsaw 2 cycle oil is the same thing.

    If you didn't start out with well seasoned wood to make a stock, you may as well figure on starting over. An uncured stock will warp, twist, and do all kinds of nasty things if you expect the rifle to group. If you used Truoil too heavily, it...

    Grits work quite well too but not as good as the tumbling stuff. The crushed pecan shells have a higher density and a little more range./beagle

    Thought the season for wood bees was over so I reworked the brass and put it up for the season. Monday I was mowing and noticed several bumble bees around the base of one of my trees. Pulled the zero turn over the hole and that stirred them up....

    Advertising in the magazines is not cheap. Probably several thousand a month for a big ad. With the internet, lots cheaper to spread the ads around there.
