    If this is your first single shot Henry, you will like it. What is the trigger pull, if you have a gauge? Guess if you don't. The triggers were flat out garbage when they first came out, but the recall really got their game together. I personally...

    Well, these aren't THAT crazy of loads. There's still a number of big game rifles that are worse. What always gets me is somebody with a 45-70 or similar comes by and starts touting all this about sectional density, that they are so big, they don't...

    Lightfield used to make the only factory 3.5” 12 ga slug. That packed a wallop. I wouldn’t mess with 800x for a slug that heavy. Before I got my pressure trace 2, I sent some fury slugs off to Precision Reloading for pressure testing (there’s a...

    To be honest, there is no reason 2400 would not make a fine slug powder for heavy loads, but you will not find any data for it. I can not recommend anyone use 2400 powder, as I've never used it myself. It is a powder with almost no data in shotguns....

    It won't break his shoulder, it just won't be pleasant. I've never been able to get my hands on those Breneke gold crush's. Those are by far the most powerful factory slug you can buy for a 12 gauge. If you just want to get a taste of recoil, one...

    I'm a "hat person" - kind of out of necessity as I am a bit thin on top. I used to love to pick up ball caps at different places but when we moved from the farm into town, it was time to clean them out and send them to Goodwill. Now I try to limit...

    I don't see anything wrong with that. You would probably want to cast them of something other than pure lead, although pure lead will work. With clip on wheel weights, they might be real close to 1000 grains. That's a lot of mass heading down range....

    Electric motors don't really have any moving parts. The shaft obviously turns, but nothing mechanical causes it to turn. You are 100% correct on the rotary engine. I just double checked, and I did not realize the rotor and shaft (eccentric...

    Possibly a typo, but to clarify, you would be boring starting only 1/2" from the muzzle, and going back. To be honest, I don't know a good way to do it, as I've not done it myself. I figured I'd throw it out there incase you had an idea. I believe...

    Being as you are a machinist, maybe you could try jug choking a barrel yourself. The idea is the same as constricting chokes, except you are relieving an area just shy of the muzzle so the shot expands, then contracts down again choking it. You...
