    All early Colts were made out of wrought iron not steel. Wrought iron is very low carbon and is not heat treatable. Today it is mostly used in ornamental fences and railings. Alloy steel begins in 1865, when American metallurgist Julius Baur...

    Just bought a used Honda 2000 ($600 out the door)to replace my old Kawasaki 1000. The K1000 is loud and I needed a bit more wattage. One time I hadn't started the K1000 for 10 years or so, but had run the gas out of it. Put fresh gas in it,...

    local pawn/gun store had advertised primers, but didn't stop in to see how much. They had Rem 7.5's earlier this year for $200/K, so wouldn't be surprised if $150/K is what they are asking for standard stuff.

    The prions from CWD are not destroyed in an incinerator. The Mad Cow residue in England was buried. CWD contaminated game residue in one state (Maybe Michigan) is buried in the ground after the whole is prepared with clay bottom and sides....

    CJB is when old people get it. New Variant/Variant CJB is when young people get it. There have seemingly been old folks dying of it forever and then it was given a name. Now young folks have a new name. Kuru was what they called it when cannibals...

    CWD wildlife are more likely to become roadkill. Only the states that don't test are CWD free (Sure!). Feeding deer seems to greatly increase the % with CWD. When there are large numbers of CWD, you soon reach the point where there are no legal...

    Currently you can purchase new polymer ones for $8.50 each if you purchase 3. They are $10.00 as singles. The $18.99 eBay wants for the originals is insane. Other places want more but part of that is since they are part cardboard and relatively...

    The non-serious shooter/hunters tend to have lots of issues. Most don't understand the actual size of the kill zone nor do they understand that the aiming point on a game animal is the exit hole. They also tend not to understand proper scope...

    I load large volumes of ammo and lot size is based on numbers of loads in the powder container. Having done this for 30 years plus I have yet to a factory sealed powder container that does not contain the correct amount. My bet would be a partial...

    I loaded the 165 ftx in my Ruger American. Tried many cast at different diameters and pistol bullets sized down to .356" but no joy except for the 9mm 147gr bullets. Found some 165 ftx and tried different powder, but same results. Finally...

    And I was told long ago (for me) that there have been more deer taken with a .22LR than all other cartridges combined. I absolutely cannot swear it's true, but sure can't swear it isn't, either. ;) Bill

    SWMBO laughs at me, but I have a box in the shop marked "Someplace Safe." So far, everything I've put in there has stayed there. Anything that I put in any other "someplace safe" the stuff is not seen again for decades, if ever. Bill
