    RCBS Kit

    One of the favorite games o firearms site's is bashing Lee. But for every Lee basher there's a Lee lover. I am neither a basher or a lover. I have a few set's of Lee dies and can find little wrong with them except the lock ring. Easy fix, simply replaced it with one I like. I find if that were...

    An embarrassing question about bore cleaning...

    I've made my own patch's for years out of old t-shirt's. Have no idea the size just learned to eyeball them. Well several years ago I got to feeling rich and bought patch's off Amzon. They were some kind of material I don't recognize but they work, sort of. They are double layer and to work in...

    Sling Keeperer - love the idea but skeptical...

    Might be alright I'd think. Just not for me. I like 1" military type slings and use the Jaeger carry. I'm right handed and rifle sings over my left shoulder, butt up and left hand on the forearm. Really fast to get rifle off and u into shooting position. With that keeper for me the sling would...

    Fishing Boats

    I was looking for something to replace my Dodge 3/4t w/Cummins in it when fuel prices went crazy. Found a Jeep with bunch of mile's buy good price. Went over and bught it. Friend of mine was shocked I didn't look around more and think about it more. If I had, I would probably have missed that...

    Looking for new gun

    I have my fourth 308 right now, just don't shoot a lot anymore. If I was going to get something different that the 308, I'd give a lot of thought's to bullet's. Go to a 300 mag and any bullet you can shoot from it will also work in the 308. problem is the 308 velocity with heavier bullet's goes...

    Recommendations for 16 gauge shotgun

    I love my 16's but you might not. One is a mod 37 Ithica. Had it for years and finally used it this year, shot a dove with it! I started out with ump's and the cream of the crop for me was the mod 37. Ya might consider guage. If you reload, I thing 12ga is probably the way to go. When I shot a...

    Non-Bonded Bullets options

    I think a thing with cup and core bullet's is you have to learn to choose the right bullet for the job. Example would be a 150gr bullet in 30 cal. In a 308 or 300 Savage it may work fine on deer but may leave something to be desired on larger game. Same bullet in a 300 mag may leave something to...

    RCBS Kit

    Imperial sizing wax is really popular. I tried the Hornady version and didn't trust I was getting a case lubed, couldn't feel the stuff on my finger's. The lube pad and lube will work but has it's draw backs too. To much lube on the pad and you'll dent the case shoulders. Not enough and you'll...

    New Pup (Pics)

    Little trick to getting the dog to release when it doesn't want to. Get it in close to you, you down on one knee. Get a hold of the collar under it's chin with a thumb. With the other hand, pull it into you knee, it will be trapped there but not reject it. Use the free hand to stroke it down the...

    Exceeding Max Recommended Loads

    Flat primer's aren't necessarily a pressure sign. Could be nothing more than a primer with soft cups. A flat primer that is flat all the way across the pocket, is a pressure sign. Anything much less and I'd look for other sign's to go with it. Sticky bolt, extractor mark on the back of the case...

    Looking for a little help on a dog decision

    Pretty old thread. Didn't read it all, Op pretty much spilled the bean's in his first post. He didn't have a clue what he wanted in a dog. Choice between a Lab and a Blue Tic? A lab is a waterfoul dog and a Blue Tic is a treeing hound! First thing he'd had to figure out is what he wanted the dog...

    Training older dog

    I got a dog in to train a long time back. GSP. Was about 6 yrs old and had never been out of the kennel. That was a chore till I figured it out. First thing I needed to do was wake up the instinct's! Just didn't seem to understand that in the beginning. Dog had no desire at all for birds! In...

    Non-Bonded Bullets options

    The only tipped bullet's I use are 75 gr V-Max in my 243. at 200 yds they hit the target attached to 2" thick foam and explode like a bomb, jacket material every where behind the target frame. Had a friend's 7nn Rm Mag to reload for. He wanted 162 gr A-Max bullet's in it. Had trouble loading...

    Non-Bonded Bullets options

    I have shot a lot of deer and a few elk with interlocks starting back when they were called spire point's. Pretty much been my go to bullet for a lot of years. First elk with my 6.5x06 was going to be a Nosler 140gr partition. Turned out I used the Hornady interlock 140gr and one shot, one down...

    Old Jon boat refurb/upgrade

    That is a fishing boat! I got one this year that's similar. 15' flat bottom w/2014 20hp Honda on it, $3k. had a pedastill seat up front and I removed it and put a box in to mount the seat on, more storage area. Well storage I haven't used so far! I think most people, when talking about a fishing...

    Fishing Boats

    I don't know a lot about fishing boats other than a boat I fish out of is a fishing boat. My older brother got a fishing boat that he could pull water skier's with it and you couldn't get to the front of the boat, sure was fast. Take a look at some of the bass boats, if you have $20+ laying...

    Browning X bolt

    Interesting. In Ted Truebloods book, The Accurate Rifle, he did mention something about accuracy in the hunting rifle. While he went after 1/4" or better group' in his match rifle's 1 1/2' was fine in his hunting rifle's. His explanation was each rifle had a different purpose and for hunting 1...
