    tazman, to some extent you are comparing apples and oranges here. I own the same guns you have and it’s not at all unusual for the auto to shoot better than the revolvers. In fact, it’s more common for the auto to shoot better. The biggest reason...

    NSB replied to a thread CZ 457 MTR problem in Rimfire Area
    It’s collecting lead in the barrel from something. I’d suggest running a borescope down the barrel before and after and seeing where it’s collecting. Based on the limited info available it’s not the scope or mounts if it’s happening after 15 good...

    Every place I get bullets from (lots of places) sells .308 bullets under the heading .308 bullets, not 30 cal. I’m not sure how you’re ending up being confused about this. It sounds like you need to get a good reloading manual (I’d suggest Lyman...

    The description on EVERY box of bullets spells out the exact diameter. There are several different “30” caliber bullets that aren’t exactly .308”. Example: .303 British is actually .310-.312”. You need a true .308” bullet for your gun.

    Shooting deer and killing them has almost nothing to do with FPS or muzzle energy. It has EVERYTHING to do with placing the bullet in the vitals. I’ve probably shot somewhere around two hundred deer and they’ve been shot with bows, handguns,...

    The number one PCP airgun based on sales is the Benjamin Marauder. I suggested to a friend of mine to buy one. It’s half the price of my Daystate, but about 95% as accurate and it comes in several configurations. They’re made right here in the USA...

    There is a bolt inside the stock that you can tighten. You’ll need an extension for your ratchet. I can’t remember the size, but it’s metric. Don’t over tighten it. When you take the recoil pad/butt plate off there will be a good sized hole under...

    NSB replied to a thread Deer rifle in Hunting with CB's
    I doubt if it was just from a different load. I’ll assume the scope is .25” per click at 100 yards? If so, you were off five inches for twenty clicks at 100 yards! Something’s “off” with your gun/scope for that to happen I believe.

    Since your gun doesn’t feed through the action (it’s an 1885 Trapper model) you can shoot any length bullet that will allow you to close the action without having to force the round to chamber due to hitting the lands before the lever is closed....

    I just gave over a pound of it away this week. I’ve never found it to be the best powder in anything. It’s also to hot burning. A couple of shots and your barrel is really heated up.

    I used that load last year and shot two deer at a measured 189 yards. It shoots five shot 1moa groups at 100 yards and is the most accurate load I’ve found to date. You’re all set to go with that load. V120 shoots equally well.

    You’ve always got some that figure “if some’s good, more’s better, then too much must be just right”. As Ron White said, “you can’t fix stupid”. Buy anything now days and if there’s instructions the first several pages are for idiots. Like, “don’t...

    If you look through most, if not all, reloading manuals you’ll see that the loads shown are the same whether or not they are shot out of a revolver or a rifle. You will get some added velocity out of a longer barrel. My MGM barrels are both 20” and...

    I also have an MGM .357max barrel (two of them, one with 1:20 and one with 1:16 twist). I also use N110 and N120 powder. I doubt you’ll get 2,000fps with either of those powders with 180g bullets. I will add though that my most accurate loads were...

    Lyman use to list loads that suggested adding Dacron fillers. In their last two releases they quit adding the use of fillers. When they did suggest it, they suggested it by weight, not size. It takes very little filler to accomplish the job. They...
