    During Fathers Day lunch, I made plans to take two of my Grand Daughters to shoot the rifles I bought them shortly after their birth. After gathering all the equipment and the girls, we drove to the only local range. Excitement ruled the day...

    I guess I need to clarify: I am no longer keeping a list of who wants what. Per my post #175: "So from this point forward, PM is the way to contact me in regard to lead purchases". Thanks! ~K

    It's the same info either copied or rewritten, hidden among the advertisements. If the advertisers are paying, and we are charged an exorbitant price for paper and ink, why bother? The printed media was at one time, the only way to find info. Its...

    Much more powerful. Also, more expensive to shoot. And I only know of hi point and aero 10mm carbines. In my opinion, the Ruger is better than both. The 9mm out of a 16Ē barrel is no slouch. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Ruger pc9/9mm Easy to cast a variety of weights, shoots great. Cheap brass, doesnít use a lot of powder. With cast and bullseye, can load very cheap. Fun gun to shoot and can be had for $499. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Your thread got me interested in the rifle/cartridge so I did some reading. I found an article on the web (so it's got to be true) that said the parent case was the 30 TC. I haven't looked for any more info today so can't verify it, just thought it...

    I once killed a rabbit with one 7 1/2 shot through the top of the ear. It must have scared him to death or caused a heart attack. At the time my kids wouldn't eat wild game, but he made the best chicken pie they ever ate.

    I've got some case slick. Don't know what it's made of. I usually use Hornady paste lube or one shot for bottleneck. I don't care for the case slick. It gums up my sizing die. The bullets are coming out of the mold that large. I was informed at Noe...

    I haven't bought a .454 resizer yet and not going too until I can scrape up enough for a lube sizer. I already had the .452 sizer. It wasn't until I started sizing on the Lee classic cast that I could feel how much pressure it was taking to do it....

    I had posted earlier that my Henry seemed to like .454 bullets verses the .452. I reslugged this morning and high side is pretty much dead on at .451.5. I ordered a Noe mold that was sized .454 since this was measurement of my Laser cast bullets. Al...
