Posted in thread: after market take down pin for LCP on 09-30-2015 at 01:42 AM
Does anybody have any experience with the replacement take down pin for a LCP? Are they any
stronger than factory pins? I ask because I have sheared the head off the Ruger factory pins
using some robu...
Posted in thread: Best Scope for Ruger 10/22 and/or other 22 rifle? on 11-14-2012 at 04:37 PM
bluegrasscotty, have to disagree. A Simmons .22 mag scope will cost under $50.00 and is far
from a "BB" gun scope. Images are bright , reticle is clearly defined and will return to zero
after " boxing...
Posted in thread: Hornady FTX vs Win PDX1 .22 mag on 09-15-2012 at 01:29 AM
I carry a NAA Black widow just about all the time and am happy with the Hornady FTX. However,
I'm wondering if anybody has done any velocity or penetration testing with the new 40 gr. ( was
45 gr.) Wi...

Put a Simmons 3x9x32 22 Mag. scope on my 10/22 and works fine. The scope was free after
returning to Simmons a 15 year old scope that was mounted on a 45/70 and after a couple of
hundred shots would n...

Do you mean he made brass bullets? And are you talking for 22-250, .222, .223. Stuff like that?
If so, how did he do it?rick1976: He used the cases for jackets into which he swaged lead wire.

New an old timer who fashioned 50 gr. bullets for his .22 rifles from spent . LR cases. Worked
great if velocity was held to a moderate level. dgang

Recently bought some 95 gr. JHP Double Tap ammo for my LCP, (Buffalo Bore just a little too
much for the LCP) . Double Tap claims 975 fps from a 2.5" barrel. Have not been able to run it
through a chr...
Posted in thread: TIPS ON ACCURIZING THE MINI-14, Part Two on 02-11-2012 at 07:01 PM
Found that adding a heavy Shilen barrel and some trigger work turned my mini 14 into a one MOA
prairie dog gun. The Shilen barrel is .910 inches after the gas block. Normal size from chamber
to the ga...
Posted in thread: different load data for Speer bullets? on 11-14-2011 at 06:54 PM
Speer and other big-names make jacketed bullets. They also make heavy plated bullets (see Gold
Dots) that are referenced as "bonded." These are not the light plating on the bullets from
