    I have killed over 225 deer with a firearm. The only time I have every had issues with needing more than one shot is when I used bullets designed for much heavier game. They acted like solids. I failed to recover one deer with the firearm.

    I have three 650's, two Super 1050's and a RL1000 all with case feeders. Not interested in an auto drives. Almost 100% of the ammo loaded on these presses are two steps. First step is size, deprime and any other steps like trimming and...

    I own calibers/barrels in both rimmed and rimless. Both work equally as well. Never owned a 30 Herrett, but I did own a 357 Herrett. It was a great caliber and did as claim but I got tired of the wildcat brass forming. Personally, I would go...

    Hickok replied to a thread Bore slugging in Factory Rifles
    You are measuring the wrong area of the bullet, the lands. You want to measure the widest portion of the bullet, the grooves. They should run about .451" to .454" for .45 COLT barrels. A good micrometer gives better measurements.

    I really like the Sig too. Just not crazy about the durability of the finish. Was reading on the Sig forums, and seems to be a common complaint with the PVD finish on Sig/Sauer pistols. Again, I do really like this pistol!:-)

    Not even close to being legal for a gunsmith to "confiscate" an unsafe firearm. Unsafe is highly subjective. It might be truly unsafe to fire yet 100% safe as a non-firing display. The gunsmith has ZERO legal rights to "confiscate" said firearm. ...

    Spot on with your analysis. Since the so-called gunsmith has passed that would indicate he was old enough to have worked on older firearms, and he should have been aware of the 10's of millions of manual operated firearms that were designed without...
