  1. Wife just brought one home yesterday from Sportsman’s Warehouse in Fairbanks. Pakistan produced, smooth cocking hammers and very thin wrist.
  2. Take a walk around any body of water or coast line in the western US and you will find plastic bottles, six pack can holders and shot shell hulls and wads on the shore and waters edge. What’s funny about that?
  3. I shot a moose at a little over 700 yards with a State Arms Light Rifle. 50 BMG, 850gr. Golden Bear SBT soft point. The bullet left the barrel at about 2,675fps and struck the moose high in the neck. Pinky finger size hole going in, broke the spine and made just a little bit bigger hole coming out. I did not recover the bullet. There was no explosion or flying chunks. The critter just deflated right there. Very clean kill. Two days later a friend shot a griz on the gut pile with his little 375 H&H.
  4. Awesome. You can hunt ducks with a wrist-rocket and marbles.
  5. Don’t understand why you would be in peril. Looks like a fun stage to me.
  6. Lyman. Does a good job with SS pins but leaks water.
  7. Winchester AA hull, CB1138-12 wad, Fed 209A primer, Lee 4cc scoop of GOEX 2F and 1oz of #8 shot. Sometimes I use the same scoop of Pyrodex Select in the shotgun because it cost less.
  8. If the tab on the bolt is getting bent down the extractor may be too stiff.
  9. I have one. It took several hours of reading, rubbing, filing and polishing to make it cycle a cartridge from the magazine to the chamber and eject a spent case. Getting the extractors to work and the ejector to knock the last empty out of the action is a real pain. Awkward is a word that comes to mind if you have played with one. But they look cool!
  10. Florence. Went to Jr. High there. Go Braves!
  11. I never hitched on to the Trail Boss train. Too expensive and does not perform any better than other powders with decades of data behind them. I like Red Dot, Green Dot, Bullseye and GOEX for SASS level loads.
  12. And you would be out of category.
  13. Local NAPA store has VP Racing MS109 unleaded for $185.00 per 5 gal can. I don’t think they sell much. I would be thrilled to have access to any 93+ unleaded.
  14. I thought RNVs already had low, wide hammer spurs.
  15. I load the AA hull without the slightest problem. I use a Mec Sizemaster as follows; decap and size hull. Seat primer. Drop in GOEX 2F through a funnel from a Lee 4cc scoop. Seat a CB-1138-12 wad with 30# pressure and dump in 1oz. of #8 shot. Hit the starter crimp station and move to the final crimp and done. Makes a very good load. If I were you I would try using the Lee 3.7cc scoop with 1oz of shot. When I used the Load All; a long time ago, I had my best luck when I cycled it fully and matched the column height to the machine.
