  1. The British invented the concentration camp during the Boer War.
  2. Lead hardness needs to be related to pressure/velocity of loads. The higher the pressure, the harder lead should be. For cowboy shooting type loads softer bullets as specified by OLG are the way to go. Bullets that are too hard don't obturate (fill the bore) well and tend to lead the forcing cone area.
  3. In case you're a Traffic fan: "John Barleycorn must die..."
  4. I'm gonna call a second miss on this one. The rifle kd wasn't there because the shooter knocked it down when he shot the wrong target. Therefore the "missing" target was caused by the shooters own actions. There was no target failure. And yes, self inflicted wounds are the most painful.
  5. The whippings will continue until morale improves.
  6. Look into Coon Creek outfitters. They should be able to supply everything you need.
  7. I live about 10 minutes from Magma and I will be at Winter Range working in the stat house. Let me know what you need and we'll make it happen.
  8. Burris builds some very clear scopes at very reasonable prices.
  9. Texas John Slaughter made 'em do what they oughter, 'cause if they didn't they died.
  10. Congratulations - hope it works as well for you as it has for me.
  11. Trailfider is a leather maker and knows his stuff. His advice is worth $$$.
  12. Eight years ago Colt was not making New Frontiers. The original run of 3rd generation New Frontiers was built in the late 70s and early 80s. Some of them are very sweet, some are a bit rough. The only way to know is to handle the gun and work the action. The New Frontier was reintroduced about four years ago and these are very sweet. The 70s/80s have a NF suffix and non-removable cylinder bushing. The new ones have an NF prefix and the removable bushing. I have both and like them both. Price wise New Frontiers are almost always less expensive than regular SAAs. The way Colt prices are
