    In looking at some nice lower power binoculars I came across

    some sort of military looking ones that go 60x to120 x more or less.

    They are priced under $100.

    Ive never seen any in a store.

    Are they useful? Too heavy to take anywhere?

    One set was priced at 52 dollars.... Very tempting.

    But I don't need to just waste 52 dollars either....

    Anyone tried these??





    You sure the 120 is not diameter in mm of the objective lens?

    Last deep clean was this past fall.


    It's not pulling out empty shells.  So if it falls to pull out the first one, well, I get a bunch of SG misses.

    Stiffer spring for left side extractor then.

    Polish the chamber.

    Thanks,Gritz will do and thanks for recommending jumping on in to a quality piece,it’s always something I wanted to do,just no one around me that I know is involved in this.

    When you talk to Steve Brooks. I recommend a Paul Jones Creedmoor bullet at 540gn.

    You want all bands at .458 dia and the nose no more than .448 dia.

    Are there any ranges near you that go out past 300yds?

    Thanks everyone and all offers are appreciated but one thing leaded to another and I ended up ordering my own 1874 Shiloh sharps rough rider in 45-70 with 30 inch heavy oct,now I need to research best molds,Bullets,brass and sights. Again thanks

    Steve Brooks for moulds.

    Starline for brass. Anneal the case mouth.

    MVA for sights(don't go the cheap here)I run MVA L/R buffalo Soule w/Hadley eyecup. The MVA #113 works very well for the front sight.

    Goex Old 'E' for real BP.

    CCI br2 primers.

    My Norinco which is 12yrs old now, with heavy usage, just started having extraction problems the last few matches.  I'm hoping it was just this one box of ammo, cause other boxes of the same brand worked flawlessly.


    So are you saying you resize loaded ammo?


    When did you last do a deep cleaning of the bolt,  action etc?

    Just what is the extraction issue?

    Machine is two years old.  Can't see buying a new one....yet.


    Whole house was fitted with GFI by the old man who built it.  Paranoid old bugger, but I'm glad he was.


    I have a dozen ABC fire extinguishers in my house:  2 in the kitchen, two in the garage where the water heater lives, one in each bedroom and one in the den,  one in the laundry room, and four in my stand-alone workshop where there is an electric water heater and a 250 V space heater and two 28' x 36' work bays.  One in the garage and two in the shop are 10# , the rest are 5#.


    Guess I'm paranoid, too.  The old guy who lived across the street from me in California set fire to his house three time in37 1/2 years...all in the kitchen and all from heating cooking oil and then leaving the room to go work on his computer.


    Well, you didn't live this long 'cause your pretty......:lol:

    Lucky, may-be.......:P


  8. Call Nick at Knights Leather. He's in SAN.

    He does custom work and is a 5th generation leatherman. 

    Fast turn around time too.

  9. There's been plenty of FTF issues with that FP safety on this forum.

    I have saw 2 last month with the issue.

    Buyer beware.....

    Never saw a d/w on GFCI.  should they be? Does the surge of the motor trip it?


    Mine was on a GFI outlet as the entire house was GFI.

    Including the washer and dryer. 

    Never had a problem.

    I settled on 5.8 gr of 231 in the 45 Colt case behind the 200 gr cast Lee bullet in my 5.5" Model P and 1873 20" rifle . The rifle cuts one ragged hole at 50' and the pistol a bit bigger at 30'. Cases and bores are clean. I don't need to tumble the cases for the next loading. Similar groups in the Schofield case with 5.2 gr.


    Same load I use in my .45acp ammo.

    I figgered after 20+ years of watching barbers do it in the mirror it didn’t look that hard. I was right.


    You're use'n a mirror-That's cheat'n. :P


  13. It's time to get a new one then.

    Are your kitchen outlets GFI?

    If NO, then get'em redone so they are.

    90%+ house fires are started in the kitchen.

    Do you have at least 1, 5lb ABC fire extinguisher in the kitchen?

    My barber has been closed going on 3 weeks now and I can’t find any of them open, I’d kind of think they were an essential service. My Doctor is going to do a visual office visit in a few minutes via FaceTime but that probably won’t work for a hair cut:D. Anyone else getting shaggy?


    Go ask a Mortician :lol:
