    I think that the CB's are running out of poof at 40 yards. My deaf self could hear the bullets impact the cardboard. I hunt with high speed shorts and long rifle- I use the CBs for play. If I lived in town I'd only use CBs or Colibris. Sent...

    I cast some Lee 105 SWC, some C309170F, and some 309 230 gr bullets. And I answered a "What if" question by reloading and test firing two 2-1/2" .410 shells featuring FFFFG and 7-1/2 shot. They'll hunt. Sent from my SM-A716U using Tapatalk

    Not the same rifle but same caliber; I hope this ( from Lyman 45th) helps. Make sure there's no deer behind the one you are shooting at- a single deer won't stop that .58 chunk of lead! Sent from my SM-A716U using Tapatalk

    For me, H110/W296 makes the .30 Carbine, .300BO, and .41 magnum be "all they can be"- perfectly. No problems using it for what it is. Sent from my SM-A716U using Tapatalk

    I got the oven cleaner tip from a guy at a gun show years ago. His milsurp rifles were always the cleanest ones. It removes cosmoline better and safer than the old paintbrush and gasoline method!

    Oven cleaner is great for removing years of Wisconsin dirt from the stock. The buttplate screws required some oomph to remove-they are so rotten that they're getting tossed. I'm not shooting for factory new appearance; just a clean usable rifle. ...

    Long ago I was given a carton of 500 Lazer Cast 170 gr FN bullets. At .307”- they leaded my 94 up quickly. I melted and recast the last 400 into Lee C309150F, sized .309” and tumble lubed. No more problem.

    In an AR15, seat to magazine length. If they won't chamber, try seating a little deeper. I hate it when ejecting an unfired round pulls the bullet out and spills powder into the action. Sent from my SM-A716U using Tapatalk
