    Thumbs up Anybody remember BruceB?

    I do!

    He popped into my head lastnight.
    Thought I'd give him a shout out.

    Yeah, I love cast iron cookware.

    I remember Bruce. Very knowledgeable and nice fellow by my accounts. Sad that he left the range so long ago.

    Bought a Ruger #3 in 375 Winchester because of him!

    Yes I think of him every time I work with my Ruger No.1 in 416 Rigby. In fact I use his recommended load most of the time. His footprints are still seen around the halls of Cast Boolits.

    I read line by line his experiments for shooting cast from an M1, and then the M1A. I don't have an M1 yet, but I was able to score an M1A about 7 years ago. It was somebody's field gun, used but not abused. To this day I have not fired anything but cast through it.

    I have not gone the depth of detail he used for his loads but I get 'minute of soda can' groups off-hand at 100 yards. My brother bought his first M1A, National Match, 30 plus years ago and I dearly admired it. 10 or so years ago, he bought another with the 18" Scout Rifle barrel. I can't think of the M1A without thinking of Bruce and the knowledge he shared with all of us.

    I value his info on using cast boolits in gas guns. I miss his insight.
