    I guess it all depends on what you see and what your friend is asking, but if the prices seems reasonable I'd probably try to buy the whole lot. Those you don't want or need can easily be swapped for what you need in swap-n-sale. I picked up...

    That is under ideal circumstances. Actual testing indicates 20 degree temps reduce range by 41% and zero temps about 60%. Mpls junked it's 500 million dollars worth of electric buses for this reason. Same for hot weather and AC usage.

    Back about 1985, I was a rookie cop working nights. We got a call to a shooting at a local Git-N-Go joint. Long story short, the gun was a Ruger Single Six, unsure what ammunition was used. The distance the shooting took place was approximately 20...

    I have both versions of the Thompson #358156, made by Ideal. Hollow points for small game would be fine if that's what makes a person happy. I've not had the opportunity to try the HP version on deer sized game. I have a feeling it would hold...

    Catkiller45, my thought exactly, how much "TOO small" for your Henry rifle are your boolits? An oven thermometer, a cheapo toaster oven (new or from a thrift store) and a pound of PC powder is about all you need. At least for a look see, or...

    The problem with too much engagement,is if you eject the cartridge, the bullet is likely to stay in the bore. Better to have a good throat fit.

    My first .22 Rim Fire was a Nylon 66, brown in color. The black & chrome model seemed a bit too flashy for my intended use of the gun, hunting. I have no idea how many bricks of various brands of ammunition I fired through it before cleaning it. I...

    You probably can, but how well it'll work without spilling lead all over in an unknown. Why not just buy a proper casting ladle, either from RCBS or Lyman. Rick

    there really isn't any pitting or corrosion on the element, but surely a possibility. why the element shorted is less of a concern than how it could operate in a shorted unsafe condition. Guess it's a good thing I never felt inclined to cast...

    Check your local Craigslist. I've found reasonable, well maintained vehicles there. You might check for government auctions in your area, too. I got a Bureau of Land Management 2010 Ram at a good price. Government vehicles are on a regular schedule...
