    I don't think you said anything about the likely range you will be hunting? If it is relatively close range any of them would be fine. If it is longer range the flatter shooting cartridge you should practice with.

    Not many companies make man size clothes. I go to buy gloves, and the XX large I can barely get on. It won't help for waders, but for shoes, I found the Healthy Feet website. Only place I found comfortable shoes for my 14 EEEE feet, and they wear...

    Backwards - full length size and then neck anneal. You might want to do at least one expansion before neck annealing. Expand neck with whatever expander buttons you have to get it closer to your goal. Remember, brass work hardens. It will be a...

    Optically, the old -B Weavers and later were very good when new and even today in mint condition they are surprisingly good by todays standards. The issue is many of these older scopes suffer from lenses separation and or cement degradation that...

    It was a standard practice - and the contract offered to me by my Christian employer had the same contract. I refused to sign for the same reason and continued to get a standard paycheck until they removed that statement from the contract. At that...

    We used to go into one of the barns with a lot of pigeons. One would shine a bright flashlight at one, it would fly towards the light, and it got stuffed into a burlap bag. Didn't take long to have as many as you wanted to eat.

    Yup, bolt sleeve on order, 209 breech block in hand. Manual in my e-mail and have to forward it to him to print. I think he will be good to go. I have powder and boolits for the sabots.

    Do you have bar stock available to you? It can be of any strong metal. Take the measurements off that one and see if you can make your own? Looks like just cut to length, locate hole, and drill, if you can find the right size bar stock.

    I think I would have preferred this during my working years. Beats sitting in your car or standing in a line at a bank to cash a check. As another poster mentioned, if you want the cash, go to the bank and cash it out.

    What the mold states and what it actually casts will vary according to your alloy mix. You need to get the mold, make some boolits, and measure the boolits to see what you actually have. Then we can talk.

    I was incorrect. If it had a serial number that was legally removed pre 22 October 1968 it became illegal on the 22nd of October 1968. The only two options I can see is purchasing a lower tang with a serial number or requesting that the ATF...

    It just needs to be recorded as pre 1968 with no serial number. If he cant tell the difference between a japchester and an original he should be in a different business.

    Most popular is likely 30-30 and 30-06. Anything else would be unusual unless you are dealing with a gun nut like us, and he would already have his own equipment.

    "doing business" is the big issue. It is so broad that a prosecutor can try to make it anything he wants. That is the risk you run. If you do it once I don't see how anyone can make it an issue - but if you have an unusual mold that someone...
