    I run that bullet (Super Red Hawk) gas checked with WW or softer a little hotter, 21 grains of H110 and get no tumble or leading. I think that bullet is long enough to get by with a softer alloy. It's a Thumper! If you go softer, be sure you are...

    randyrat replied to a thread homemade penetrating oil in Our Town

    I like the SRH..The double action, the ease in which to load and built in scope mounting slots is worth it to me. My son weighs in at about 100 lbs he shoots my heavy loads with one hand (standing up) not off a bench..Off a bench it will hurt.. SRH...

    I use the top Punch and Sizing Die to prep the GC for seating. Place the GC in the Die, then gently bring the Top Punch down until it touches. A small amount of pressure and you'll feel a small pop. Now place the boolit on the GC and slowly bring...

    I get cold in a Hammock in the winter, would be great in the spring summer and fall though. I got lucky today and found a nice 1 1/2 lb single bit axe between 24" long Norlund. Perfect for camping and carrying in my pack for $5.
