    I have a Model 70 Heavy Varmint from that same timeframe. Very heavy pull, but I checked out the mentioned MaCarbo site, watched their instruction video, ultimately bought a similar spring kit off Ebay and installed it. So simple a monkey could do...

    Yeah, they're 'pfishing' for you info to use for identity theft. I get stuff like the IRS demands $5,000. in bit coin or the Police are on the way, and I'll be arrested. Other ones want Walmart gift cards, or I'll be arrested.

    That's a big issue now days. The reality of it is that only about 5% of men fit those requirements, and 80-90% of the women are demanding it. There's several youtube channels that address this. "Better Bachler", "Coach Greg Adams", "Hammer...

    I happen to have quite a bit of AA 8700. I've been using it in the .458, I get a little unburned powder, but not much and it seems to work pretty well with the Lyman 500 grain round nose. I have been wondering how it might work in '06 class things...

    Winger Ed. replied to a thread Window unit AC in Our Town
    I think a modern 8,000 is about the biggest than can still run on a 15 amp 120 circuit, but you're up pretty close to the max. power it can handle. If you can run a 220 circuit for a bigger unit, it tends to work out better, and maybe a little...

    There is a TON of cast bullet data out there for the .308 using Unique, Red Dot,, 700X, etc. Get any Lyman manual, the 3rd edition at least you can download for free. More .30 caliber mold designs than any other caliber by far. Literally...

    A .308 is a "heavy recoiling rifle"? I thought I had become kind of wimpy regarding recoil but normal 150 grain loads in a .308 aren't bad at all. Hogdon has a set of "Youth" load data for various cartridges including the .308. When my youngest...

    In my experience you need to see more than 10 grains difference in a 45-70 case to begin to to see a volume change and even then it does not show up on the (BPCR) target. Maybe at the highest levels of the F class rifles but not in BPCR, such as...

    Prayers for Bodee. Sounds like he has exactly the right mind set for getting through something like this but stuff like this is always especially troubling to us when it's a little one. Keep us posted.

    Once a bunch are all sized, trimmed, & so on--- weighing them is how I'd separate out the ones you need to be exactly the same. I wouldn't trust a water volume sort of test. Just a wild guess: I'd think you'd get more of a variable introduced...

    Pedersoli's own spire point boolit (middle) shoots well but suffers from lack of lube for multiple shots. Boolit on the left is the PGT which has 4 deep lube grooves and does coat the bore well. For a lighter load, the Hensley & Gibbs 410gn...
