  1. As Cliff Hanger noted in a couple of his drawings, rebar causes a lot of splatter to be directed back towards the firing line. If you have to use it, do so in places where it behind the plane of the target face.
  2. A good source of inexpensive heavy duty springs are old engine valve springs.
  3. Examples The below is common around here but the target stand needs to have some method of preventing the target from pivoting on the post or hook this is slipped over and turning sideways to the firing line .
  4. Most have a hole near the top so that a hanger can be bolted on. Some people have the hanger welded on but you don't want to do this as it prevents the target being reversed. Targets made of AR steel will deform by cupping over time. To extend the life of the target they need to be reversed every few months. Unlike mild steel targets you cannot flatten them with a hydraulic press.
  5. If you modified that design by eliminating the driving band between the two lube grooves, creating one large lube groove, you would have a heck of a BP bullet.
  6. Ask for references You'll soon find out if they know what they're doing or not. Making them is not rocket science. I had mine made by Scarlet Darling at a match. They are so much more comfortable than the roll up foam and easier to get properly inserted. Attenuation of gunfire is as good as if not better than any of the alternatives. You will not regret the extra expense.
  7. Wife and I both experiment with recipes. We'll usually follow a recipe pretty close the first time. If we really like it then we don't tinker, if it turns out just OK we will adjust to suit our tastes. Like SDJ some substitutions happen because we prefer one variety of an ingredient over another. We almost always use Sweet Yellow onions. Paprika is one where we never use whats available in the local grocery store. Depending on the recipe I may use a Smoked or sweet variety or a combination of both to change a flavor profile. When I make oatmeal cookies I always reduce t

  9. What diameter bullets are your using? Have you verified that the bullets you are using are correctly sized? I have received bullets that were not sized to the diameter I ordered more than once. Even the most reputable caster makes a mistake once in a while. For me the caster made good on the issue. I have a Marlin, Uberti 66 and Uberti 1860 all in 44-40. All three rifles slug out to 0.429 vice 0.427. To prevent leading I have switched to using bullets sized to 0.430. Using oversized bullets means that my 44-40 crimp die doesn't do a good job. I have been using a Lee FCD
  10. Send him a PM. He's commented a couple times on this thread.
  11. Whatever it is somebodies not very happy about it.
  12. On thing about 44-40 brass is that if the case mouth is deformed the dies will not straighten it out. You have to do it by hand with a pair of round nose pliers. I can take a moderately deformed 38 or 357 case and between the sizing and belling die it will be restored enough such that irt will accept a bullet without the case wrinkling. this is not true for 44-40 cases. If they have any deformation of the case mouth you have to fix it by hand. Failure to do so will result in the case deforming when trying to seat the bullet.
  13. Noticed that they are no longer listed on the SASS webpage and their webpage appears to be broken.
  14. Here is an interactive map showing the locations of SASS affiliated clubs. https://www.google.com/maps/d/view?mid=1a5THNVZ2Dm_-CUf9h8jW6-fO8k1DPpab&ll=32.597506953918696%2C-93.78385882270516&z=7 For some reason the Jackson Hole regulators are not showing up. In order of driving time you have Jackson Hole Regulators in Quitman LA Texas Troublemakers in Brownsboro TX Bad Lands Bar 3 in Clarksville TX Bar 3 is just over a 2 hour drive from Shreveport

  16. There used to be Google Earth photos of Barksdale AFB that happened to catch a B-52 during takeoff. You could see in in each successive frame as it gained altitude.
  17. Lee FCD works excellent on 30-06. Only issue you may have is getting a bullet that light to give good accuracy.
  18. As of this morning on https://inciweb.nwcg.gov/ The icon by Durango is a prescribed burn.
  19. Hundreds of years ago, people developed ingenious methods to secure their letters from prying eyes – and they did it with only paper, adhesive and folds. Late at night on 8 February 1587, an imprisoned Mary Queen of Scots composed her last ever letter to her brother-in-law. "Tonight, after dinner, I have been advised of my sentence: I am to be executed like a criminal at eight in the morning," she wrote. "The Catholic faith and the assertion of my God-given right to the English crown are the two issues on which I am condemned." With a sad acceptance of her fate, she asked him to ta
