    Rule of thumb, Brinnell two points higher than velocity. Example, 1200 fps, 14 Bn, 1400 fps, 16 Bn, etc.

    It's the predecessor to the Cooey Model 64, Semi Auto. I just checked and Gun Parts Corp has the Cooey 64 parts that you need.

    those couple zinc ones must have been a couple of those huge truck tire weights. Otherwise I would think the percentage of zinc would be quite low and shouldn't be an issue. Of course that is being said from reading other discussions here (no...

    Yes, I am at the top of the state. Once it reached me it was just wind and a steady medium rain. My damage was limited to leaves / branches on the ground as well as a pool full of leaves.

    oldhenry, Congrat's on finding a 510. I was unaware of them until a few years back. I'd bought a 514 but just didn't care for the odd safety on the back. Anyway, I bid it farewell in a trade and a few bucks for a 510. Best deal I've made when it...

    With pure lead or 40-1 I am not sure point shape plays a significant role since expansion tends to be very good above 1,200 FPS. Even at 900 FPS I got good expansion with 40-1 with a Lyman 454190 out of a 7 1/2 Colt 1873 on deer.

    Concur. #1’s have a factory one piece rail which has integral dovetails for scope rings. #3’s have no rail but are drilled & tapped at different diameters of the barrel therefore requiring different height scope bases.

    Ruger #3 scope bases are different front & rear. If you have the correct scope bases installed correctly - taller one in front and shorter one in the rear then any scope rings will work. I have #3’s in 22 Hornet, 22 TCM (Re-barreled .223),...
