    I am sure I will be able to read more accurately the angle of the wind and have a better idea of where exactly I should make my offset in my POA compensating but whether or not my shooting will improve is the greater question....:bigsmyl2:

    I am new to the powder. Having started using it only a few years ago but it has and is growing to become a favorite of mine. Loading 380 W/231 I find max loads quick and decisively. With PP I reach the same velocity/ accuracy WITHOUT high...

    Mix your alloy in the pot more. Run 700-730 degrees. Start with a 400 degree mold. Flush your mold with brake clean. Good luck CW

    I built my version of that wind indicator today... I made it from that plastic corrugated sign board & hot glued it together... I drilled a slip-fit hole for an axle in the top of an old rickety tripod to fit a rivet, made a little...

    It put a shine in the CZ452's barrel but it wasn't aggressive enough to affect the rings you see in the chamber/leade area, I figure this will do the trick. There's no telling what improvement it makes really, that rifle shoots pretty tight anyway,...

    For as long as I can remember, I'd clean a bore...do what I thought was a good job, then I look down the barrel with light at the other end and it would shine like a diamond in a Goat's butt. I smile, pat myself on the head and say..."Good...

    These are the flags he uses...you can see the direction they point very easy with this double vane of red and white...I think I can make these very easy. I'll try my hand at it tomorrow.

    No kidding taz...after all this shooting, I still don't have it down firm just how much a projectile actually moves off the 'X' for any given MPH from any direction. I get a lot of 3:00 & 9:00 with 1/4 variations on those but I'm struggling to get a...

    Taz...I think that continued dirty patch thing is us cleaning the carbon out of the scratches/tooling marks in the barrel. I think the carbon collects there and rounds out the ID of the barrel & seals the barrel as the projectile passes. When we...

    How about an 'Ivory' or 'Purple' stock? My son just had to have the Apache, I never liked these as they don't have the feel of wood & blue steel. I guess that's my bad, I grew up before all this plastic stuff.
