  1. Measure the bullet diameters. They may not all be the same. I once had a batch of bullets that measured .307 they shot just like what you are talking about. When shooting for groups use all the same manufacture and date of brass. Does the rifle lock up tight in the stock?
  2. Spent the money that a HS class ring would have cost in 1968 ($28.88) on a 98 Mauser from the Spiegel Catalog. Still have it and use it. The only other ring I have had is a wedding ring I have worn every day since 8-20-1976.
  3. This Colorado sheriff is willing to go to jail rather than enforce a proposed gun law https://www.cnn.com/2019/03/31/us/colorado-red-flag-gun-law/index.html

  5. In 1964 I bought a JC Higgins bolt action 12ga at the local second store for $2.50. It had a broken shell carrier. Took it down the street to the local welder. He charged me 50 cents to braze it. I was 12 years old at the time and I still have it.
  6. "I'm not sure if I'm shooting from benchrest, but I am seated and resting the rifle on a bench. I am not locking it into a vise or anything like that. No sandbags either because I don't have any available." First learn how to shoot from a bench. There is more to it than just resting the rifle on the bags and pulling the trigger. Do not rest the rifle on the bench. Get some bags and learn how to use them. Are the action screws tight? Are the scope mount screws all tight. Are the scopes good? Are the bores copper fouled, badly pitted, or rusted? Are the muzzle crowns damaged? Check these things and then try shooting groups again, most modern factory ammo will shoot fine but some will be better in you rifles.
  7. If passed the Florida Constitution would be amended to outlaw most if not all semi auto, pump, and lever action firearms, anything that can hold more than 7 rounds.. It would also outlaw any weapon classified as a sniper rifle. (Anything with a scope) Direct Quote form the proposal. "No other person entering or residing in the State shall possess any weapon or firearm that functions like or has the capacity of a military style weapon. Military style weapon means any gun with a magazine capacity of more than seven rounds of ammunition or any weapon capable of firing in fully automatic mode, any weapon capable of being modified in any manner to fire in a fully automatic mode or any weapon classified as a sniper rifle." https://ballotpedia.org/Florida_Ban_on_Military-Style_Firearms_and_Disqualifications_for_Firearm_Possession_Initiative_(2020)
  8. Bob It will be one of the very last guns I would sell. I will be passing it on to family.
  9. My first Garand bought in 1978 when I was County Sheriff. A 1954 International Harvester. Local Highway Patrolman got one at the same time, also an IHC. I found out later they came from South America. Mine is mostly all IHC parts including the stock. Seemed like a lot of money at the time for a newly married 28 year old making $750 a month.
  10. Verizon sent us a free booster after multiple complaints. Just one problem it requires 10MB internet service to work. We might get 2.5MB on a good day. We can see the cell tower about 5 miles away. We used to have really good service from them up until about 2 years ago, it keeps getting worse. I think equipment at the tower is going bad but we live in a rural area with few customers so there is no incentive to repair or improve service.
  11. I just finished reading the three book series by Kurt Schlichter People's Republic Indian Country & Wildfire Fiction about the Red Blue civil war. Sadly a lot of what is in the books is coming true. The Green New Deal for example.
  12. May 1945 Springfield I received from CMP.
  13. This is one of the stupidest ad's I have ever seen. In a large part of the county the killer would have been blown away when he kicked in the bedroom door. If not before. With or without a weapon.
  14. We shut the water off any time we are going to be gone overnight or longer. A leak can happen any time. Doesn't take much of a leak to cause significant damage. Just a quarter turn on a ball valve in the basement. My feeling is an ounce of prevention beats a pound of cure every time.
  15. Red Flag Laws. Lost or stolen firearm reporting. Gun owner liable for misuse of stolen gun. Open carry restrictions. All I can think of for now.
