  1. Most of the time I zero mine in at my farm. Sometimes at a friend's farm if we are shooting together that day. I know people that zero thier guns at a gun range.
  2. Clean what’s clean? What is clean when you compare spending 60+ seconds to clear a jam or having 5 to 50 seconds in misses. If you can clear a rifle jam in less than 60 seconds you have been doing it too much and need a good gunsmith or need to learn how to reload good ammo.
  3. I done without one for 15+ years. The one time I needed one the RO handed me his and I spent more time clearing the jam on the clock than the misses would have cost me.
  4. Thanks for posting this. It was good.
  5. I had enough rain on my yard last week a 4 wheeler key I lost 30 plus years ago surfaced. Good luck hunting arrowheads.
  6. When I work a speed side match I like once for score then back of the line if you want to shoot again for warm up or practice. My second choice working the side match is shoot as many times as you like then declare for score, but the shooter must return to the back of the line after each turn on the firing line.
  7. Did you run the flame direct on the brass? If so I would say you oxidized the brass. Kind of like hitting the O2 leaver on a cutting torch to start the cut after preheat.
  8. I think point of Painted Mohawk's post was to find out if the gun was an acceptable for SASS or not.
  9. Jim I would remove the primers. Junk in junk out. As mentioned above charging to a molton bath can be hazardous. Be sure to use a face shield and dress in flame retardant clothing. Brass is a sticky metal when molton so expect any spilled or splashed metal to stick to your skin or clothing. 1700F is hot on the skin.
  10. You folks must be using the part that Al Gore invented.
  11. Drive it enough to know how it rides. Some configurations of F250s ride rough. Also being a long bed crew cab make sure you can live with its size.
  12. What is the schedule of events for the state shoot?

  13. Remove the shell plate and check the Allen head cap screws that hold the aluminum piece with the dedent ball and spring to the top of the ram. Reinstall the shell plate as described above.
  14. The Oklahoma State shoot will be at Albany OK Sep 12-14, https://rrvcowpokes.weebly.com
  15. One small fart and he will be free. One large fart and it's all over.
  16. I see you found the land run app. See you there

  17. Categories are insignificant if you can't shoot them gunfighter.
  18. The Arkansas Lead Slingers have a nice private range that is tucked away in a valley in Northwest Arkansas. Not too far from the Rogers / Bentonville area. It is a SASS club that works at following SASS rules without forgetting the cowboy way (friendly) in doing so. Blackwater Bruce is the clubs TG, and does a fine job with that duty. I have sent you a PM with his e-mail address. PM me with questions and I will try to help. Buff Bill
  19. That's a good Christmas gift you will enjoy it.
  20. Anytime two carriers interline it is a disaster. The UPS / USPS shipping that Midway uses is the worst. I think both UPS and the USPS try to make each other look bad when they interline. Either one on their own does much better. Our local FEDEX delivery drivers can't find an address two days in a row. If they don't have to have a signature they just throw the package at the door from the street. My last Dillon shipment was almost on the porch.
