    Lyman Sabot Shocker 12 gauge shot under 3" at 100yds. I shot them in my Savage 210 bolt shotgun with rifled barrel with a 4X scope. Devastating on white tails out to 150yds. I used trap cups, and loaded them a bit over 1700fps.

    Agreed. Several years ago I went to a Prairie Dog Shoot in the Sturgis, ND area. They gave us one of the Dakota Arms displays. They milled out a half circle depression of each of their rounds in a walnut block with the headstamp of each...

    I can, at least in my case. I made my last Toyota FJ payment two weeks ago. I stopped by my buddy's gun/pawn shop two days later. I was taken hostage by a new/old model 70, like new, in 300 Win Mag. Circa 1999 according to the Winchester Custom...

    For a 94, the post-63's are not as bad a drop in quality as the M70's. They are not bench rest rifles, or known for accuracy. Winchester made an attempt to out-cheap Remington. They succeeded to a certain extent, but one will note that the...

    In addition, you will get better stick to your lead boolits by heating them up along with your lube or right in your lube. By cutting your boolits out you replace the holes with unlubed boolits and remelt and do it again. One more thing, I...

    MVA offers a truly quality set of mounts for these scopes. It is the difference between having to design a system to meet a price point and designing a system and then figuring how much it has to sell for. Rich

    Olaf, did I really see you post that the post-64's fed better than the old Mauser 98 copy claw extractor on the OM's? If you prefer them you are really in luck. You can almost always buy four or five of them for what an OM sells for these days....

    Also, make sure you are following the directions of the POWDER manufacturer in regards to curing. Some of the powders I have bought on Ebay have come with instructions saying the part you are coating needs to be up to temperature before the time...

    After speaking with the owners of the shop JT was using to make the moulds at, it seems he's completely awol. Depending on how things go, they may be making moulds with other machinists doing the work. Let's hope. Jeff

    My Dad simply bypassed it, running it direct. It works as long as you keep casting and don't let the pot sit. A thermometer is good to let you know when it's up to Temp. Then it's a cast, cast, cast situation. Used it for years like that with no...

    You want to see them get real jittery and run like a cat on a hot tin roof, just buy a Deer tag and put on blaze orange, same goes with Black bear.

    I have to say the comments reflect well on JT, and that the moulds are nice to cast with. The mould I received is also very nice to cast with, as it says in my first post. But the specs are off, and it is unusable for the intended application. I'd...

    I also am loading for 2 different 7-08s (Savage and a browning) and have not the success that you have so far. I've been playing with 30-31 and 4895 so far, only about 30 rds total. I'm staying with Jwords for a bit until they are broke in. Time...

    That's what I figured. I was pretty sure it was an arbor press, but figured I'd give the vintage equipment gurus a chance to weigh in, as I have been known to be wrong in the past. Personally, my shop press is a standup 40 ton hydraulic, so I've...
