    45-70 capable of that under all conditions! My first experience with the cartridge was with a friends Trapdoor - 68 gr FFG under a Lyman 457125 - and I bought my first PAST pad after shooting it the first time. Guy on the next bench was shooting a...

    waksupi replied to a thread Computer video download in Our Town
    I repeat, Chromebook 14 will not support video download from SD cards. This platform runs off of apps and cloud. There has been no program developed for handling video downloads from a camera card. Looking for an alternative computer, not a work...

    Nope, that doesn't work. I've been working on this for two months, and it can't be done, according to tech webpages.

    I already checked, the Chromebook 14 doesn't support this, with no time line for having one available. I'm leaning real strongly towards a Dell Inspiron 15 3000.

    Only have one scope with the BDC reticle but both the reticle and program work as claimed and very user friendly. I am impressed.

    I have a question for you. What do you run for a computer? I got a Chromebook 14 recently, and can't download video to it from my sd card. So, I'm stuck with going to the library and using their antique windows machine, that takes forever to...

    Sharon Barrels did testing many years ago on over loads in their barrels. Heaviest charge was 1400 gr. powder, with 14 patched round balls over that. No failure. The only damage they were able to do on barrels was by separating the ball from the...

    They aren't hard to do, but are not a fail safe. I had one rifle with double cross bolts, that still split. A good idea with a heavy recoil rifle, though.

    Lee is the only one who provides shell holders with dies. In over 40 years of loading I've always had to buy RCBS/Lyman shell holders separately.

    The priests functioned as the medical diagnosticians of the day. Jesus sent them to the professionals to be diagnosed, or declared clean. I do not understand those who deny the grace God has given us with science and medical knowledge.

    You are surely on antibiotics. They kill all the good bugs in your digestive system, thus the bowel failure. Get some probiotic foods and talk to your MD about re-establishing the fauna in your gut.

    It's not a matter of who respects who. It's a matter of properly understanding what the variables do. NRA match rifles tend to have 28+" barrels so the velocity used below is normal for them. Using a 308 using Serria 175 lets look at the...

    vzerone. We will have to disagree on that. I have shot with Bryan and a couple of other ballisticians. None of them will pick a load with low ES's and SD's that does not group well over a load that groups well with relatively poor ES and SD...

    I wonder what happens with the modern substitute powders? I have no knowledge of the detonation rate of that fake powder. I guess if you overload one, you will be notified by parts of the gun leaving the area at high velocity.
