Kelley O., Well, I dunno about that neophyte stuff re: large pistol primers. Shooting them for 8 years and finishing near or at the top in numerous matches sounds kinda like a seasoned veteran to me. At least a lot more seasoned than us wood hauler/wannabees that mostly run around the country and ki...

Feather, That's really interesting. I got a bunch of questions, if you don't mind. How do you apply the graphite, what formulation (e.g. powder, grease, etc.), how much do you apply, white or black graphite? Also, are you applying the graphite to the entire bullet before loading or only on the expos...

Rustut, I found that at least for me a lot of what I thought was heavy recoil with my .45/110 was actually lack of sufficient and adequate hearing protection. What I was doing was unconsciously tensing up from anticipating the muzzle blast before the gun went off, and thereby actually withdrawing th...

Kelley O.,

As an outside 3rd party in the statistical wilderness, maybe I can help you here some. What is it that you don't understand about the 2 shot method for obtaining data for some stat. analysis on group sizes?

Horseman, I have a Browning 1885 BPCR in .45/70, and I agree completely with what Brent says about them especially the part about the sights and making sure the rifle is the 1885 BPCR version. The .45/70 will do everything you need to have done at 500 m and closer for silhouette or hunting, and it i...

Brent, Thanks for the report on your Africa trip; sounds like a good hunt to me. Looks like your loads and rifle performed very well for you, too. Do you happen to have any muzzle velocity data for those loads? How do you like the add-on pistol grip on your rifle? That is the first one of those I've...

After examining them I can tell you they are the real deal for a lot of applications; they will work very well for range/match work and they will absolutely excel for hunting. I have some PCV pipe carriers m...

Yep, just fired a check off to Steve R. this morning for 2 of his .45 cal delrin rods. I've been looking for a good lightweight wiping rod that would function well for both target work and hunting. Looks like this one will fill the bill perfectly.

Kelley O., Thanks for the clarification. I think I have a fairly good idea of what all needs to be checked out. I have done a lot of this, but can see I need to do some further testing.
