    Just keep in mind some firearm/cartridge max. pressure limits are well below the levels that any of the normal pressure indicators start showing warn signs. The 45 Colt in some 1873's is a good example.

    If you have been to a real traditional Powwow you have probably eaten coyote. Normally don't see it at the ones for tourists but everyone that are mostly skins has yote on the menu . I have tried yote but not dog.

    The dog regardless of breed pays the price for having irresponsible owners. It's the owners fault but until it's legal to shoot the owners dogs doing damage can't be tolerated. I lost a very valuable barrel horse in the 70's due to dogs chasing...

    I haven't seen that style in large vises like that but engravers use a smaller version for engraving. Very cool.

    As to the animal size amongst my Inuit friends the .223 is very commonly used for seals, Caribou and Polar Bear. They do have a health respect of Grizzly /Brown bear and 30/06 through .338 come out for that. I also have a medium level...

    Yes I broke the law in that case. I don't believe in letting an animal suffer if it can be avoided with coyotes being an exception for the stated reasons. That was in the 1980 when I was doing a lot of coyote hunting and while I would never take...

    Yup. Agreed 100% My one lost deer with a gun was with a 30/06. This part is not directed at you just my personal observations the two most crippling deer cartridges I have seen have been the 30/30 and the 30/06. Where I hunted lots of...

    Hi-Points are heavy due to the straight blowback and not very attractive but they always go bang. The shop I work at part time sells a bunch and they never come back. For reliability they are among best.

    First not a single person on this thread is claiming the 220 Swift is the ideal deer caliber. They are pointing out that with a properly placed bullet of the proper design it can be quite effective. Second if you are shooting at deer and missing...

    Pistol primers have a thinner cup so full pressure loads could be a problem. The thinner cup will also pose a slamfire concern. https://castboolits.gunloads.com/showthread.php?407156-small-pistol-vs-small-rifle-primers
