    Wait until the .30 SC gets to be a couple of years old. Those folks had better be buying all they can now. At least with the .327 you can use other cases.

    I will be the voice of reality. Stay away from competitive shotgun shooting unless you have a ton of money. Shoot for fun and keep it fun if you can. You may need a "come to Jesus meeting". Lay out the costs for a year of shooting. ...

    Good on you! If we don't bring the next generation into our shooting sports we will see them disappear shortly.

    Ford hasn't gone "all in" on electric vehicles the way some manufacturers claim they will. We have an F250 with the 6.7 diesel. The gasoline powered engines make enough power, but considering their range when only getting 6 mpg and the...

    I'm 55. My first vehicle was a 1959 F-1 with a 6 cylinder and a 3 on the tree. I sold it back in the 80's. I now have my grandfathers F-100 in the barn and I am slowly getting it back into driving condition. It has a 292 Y-block and 3 speed on...

    Devil nailed it, use .358 or .359 bullets for a .357 and your problems should disappear. Lee makes a good 125 gr .358 that with my alloy casts .359 or .3595. Keyholing on 2 guns went away and group size shrunk dramatically.

    Well I just checked via ammo seek. 9.5 cents ea for magnum small pistol primers by CCI. At that price I am not restocking, nor am I shooting up current supply bought at 3 to 3.5 cents ea as those would have to be replaced by primers which cost 3...

    My High Standard Military would put 50 shots into 1.5” at 50 yards. That is an accurate gun. Like a fool I sold it. One of the few guns I regret selling. We have two Rugers...not in the same class, but good for the price.

    I have a pair of Ruger Mk III 22/45's. (His and Hers) Action is essentially the same, but the 22/45 has a different grip angle for the hand. Much straighter, like a 1911 grip vs the steeply angled Ruger grip. Both have cheap red dot sights...

    I don't see anywhere in the Bible that says once Jesus returns to Earth, no one else can be saved. I also don't see any end to mankind's continued procreation and the addition of more lost souls that need salvation mentioned in the Bible either.

    I do not believe God is waiting for more men to become believers. I believe God is waiting for the period when the number of believers (as a percentage) drops to a level where it is assured non-believers (and evil) will dominate the world. ...

    Like you, I have settled in on the .223 and .308 for my rifle needs. I can still shoot full power .308, but if I ever need to dial it down, the .260 Rem would be what I would go with. Even though worrying about brass is silly at my age (500...

    Even the most modern rifle, if serviced wrong for the climate can have problems. I suspect if the rifle was serviced correctly for the climate they would not have many problems. That being said I think I agree with Kosh75287 that the expedition...

    My choices are simple. .308 or .308. One is the snob gun.... Model 70 Coyote. One is the TC Compass. The Compass normally gets picked.
