    Our nationwide employee shortages are driven by "Early Retirements" ( a small % of the issue); and dramatic shortage of Youth coming into the Market Place for work. These are Societal and Political driven problems. We have indoctrinated our youth...

    Bought and built 5 different Black Powder Rifle & Pistol kits. Last one about 15 years ago. Found them to be a great company to deal with.

    It just struck me that Shadow9mm and other readers might not yet have the background to understand my post when I stated that W748 and BLC-2 had similar burn rates. For their clarification; the following is an extract from one of many "Powder Burn...

    I use fmj in my 223 when shooting fox or other smaller fur bearing critters. Other than that,I don't have much use for fmj.

    Shadow9mm was looking to use powder he had. He had BLC-2 not any of most of the suggestions. My thoughts - I would start by trying 31 Grains of BLC-2, a dacron tuft to fill the space over the powder & keep it on the primer, your lee...

    MUSTANG replied to a thread No use for FMJ in Our Town
    Almost all my .223 is FMJ (Flat Based open tip 60 Grain) that I swage using 22LR brass. About 40% of my 30 calibers are FMJ (RBT and Flat Based 175 Grain) that I swage using 5/16 copper tubing. Rest of 30 calibers are a variety of Cast...

    My Win 92 in 25/20 gets the Lyman 65gr gc but shoots everything I have tried in it without problems. My Rossi puma in 454 Casull loads either the Lee 300gr or the Lee 452 230gr TC without issue as well.

    I was in Scheels in Missoula yesterday and they had stacks of 22lr and a bunch of the CCI 22 short CBs. The CB shorts were 12.99 per 100. I have two boxes of CCI CB shorts that I got a year or so ago at 9.99 per 100. Since I got a pcp pellet gun and...

    As per our PM discussion you said it is what was developed into the 256 Win. That being the case, I would start with starting loads for the 256W or a bit less and work up. Sticky extraction is a sure sign of over the top pressure whether or not you...

    My dad was in Patton's 3rd Army, 4th armored as a recon platoon officer. He joined the army about 1932 and was an old man of 33 in 1944. The stories he told about the things he saw and did make me wonder how he came through alive. He was lucky as...

    Your further description increases my belief these are Oregon grape. They have some green leaves all year usually just the three on the end of the stem. They don't have a vine as such and the hundreds around my yard have no berries or flowers yet....

    I have fixed several MK I and MK II Ruger triggers by polishing the sear and removing about half of the notch part of the sear. Then I add a trigger over travel stop which is just a 6x32 set screw and a nut. All of the MK I and MK II Ruger pistols I...

    For quiet back yard shooting of pests, I use a 22cal PCP pellet gun with a suppressor. With the pellets it likes it shoots under an inch at 50yds.

    I think it's Oregon grape. As it grows it gets more leaves lower on the stem in pairs. I'm not much of a plant guy so take that for what it's worth.
