    Rifle season this year I saw one deer. A basket rack buck at 2:20 pm. I passed it up waiting for something a decent size since there was no shooting basically an opening day around me. I sat all day except for from one PM till two PM. Sunday I was...

    Yep, I’ve missed only 2 days since oct 22nd in the woods myself. It’s been about the worse year I’ve seen for daytime deer traffic myself.

    First season archery and rifle season is now over. Muzzle loader season started Monday. Seems like after EVERY year ever since I’ve been a kid after about 10 am on opening day the odds of seeing a wall hanger buck is about slim to none. I’ve shot...

    Had a Colt Andaconda 44 mag with a 8 3/4” barrel and Savage Stryker chambered in 7-08 stollen. This happened back in the 90’s. It happened right before Colt announced they weren’t selling to the public. Savage has a Tasco optic and a custom muzzle...

    Soak them in water for 24 hours and then put them in a Ziploc bag and a wet paper towel in the refrigerator all winter and forget about them. Come closer to spring theyíll start growing tails. Then get them outside or in planters. I have a bunch of...

    I use zero sugar maple syrup in low quantities to keep the carbs at bay. I’ve tried almond powder for waffles but it seems to stick even when using a lot of Pam spray for release. Made some low carb squash cookies the other day using almond...

    I’m with you. I eliminated carbs staring 2 years ago on thanksgiving. Haven’t deviated from eating more than 20 carbs or so a day since. Very easy to do. I’ve dropped over a foot off my waist and feel like a kid again! Walking up ridges, sitting in...

    That alloy combo is a winner for me to drop them on the spot with my 35 Rem. Nice job! As much as Iíd like to use mine again for doe season I think Iím going to go back to my 77/44 with a 40/1 HP and try again.

    I have thousands of hard cards, fiber and cork wads, and overshot wads. Mostly 12 ga, few 20 ga. For a project dreamed about and never even started. Contact me if you need something. Might be undersize for brass shotshells.

    OP was for 92, MT Gianni mentioned 94. Does Rossi make both in .357 and .44/.45 sizes? I've not looked at them in years, but would be interested in 92 version in .44. If they do make both, is one preferable over the other?

    That's not too hot of a load. Was the brass "squeaky clean"? Like cleaned with something that removed all sizing lube and/or dry polishing media? Brass cleaned in a wet tumbler with SS pins needs lubed before resizing in a carbide sizing die. Brass...

    Excellent response and data Larry. I'm about to load some .32 S&W for my grandfather's Iver Johnson top break. I do have a 2 cavity RCBS 32-84-RN and a 1 cavity Lyman 313249 so as long as I stick to posted COL I should be good. I also have some old...

    Well I saved my ribs and I cut all the excess meat off the top which probably needs to stay on there just like pork ribs I would assume so there’s something to eat. I had shot through mine twice so there was a lot of blood on the meat layer on top...

    I have a deer thatís been aging in the garage since Monday. I would assume I would not want to eat the ribs off of this? I would think drying and aging is probably not good for ribs since there isnít very much meat on them to begin with. I made them...

    Well I can tell you I shot probably the same place you did with my 30-06 the other day. Actually two shots in the same hole and exited about an inch apart. When I first shot the deer ran like it wasn’t even hit. Made it about 35 to 40 yards and I...
