    I owned a Lyman deerstalker carbine at one time myself and as I recall, it was not only
    accurate with round balls, but several conicals and some sabots. It has to be a BEST BUT in the
    mktplace. Dan

    For my money, it is one more thing to go wrong. I believe, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it".I
    like the 209 primers, they go bang every time. Dan

    Since this is I THINK? a blackpowder forum section, if you are talking about blackpowder and
    substitutes, I have used most of them from GOEX blackpowder (hard to get in my area now) to
    Clear Shot, Ame...

    IF your main reason for buying the rifle is to hunt whitetails, the .270 WSM is a superb long
    range whitetail rig. For that matter, so is the .270 Winchester as made famous by Jack O'Conner
    years ago....

    I have a Savage Weather Warrior series in .308 Win. In general terms, if you sight in w/say a
    150 grain bullet such as a Winchester PP, and put your shots about 2 inches high at 100 yards,
    you should ...

  • Posted in thread: Opinions needed on the 7mm Rem Mag on 04-11-2008 at 05:24 PM
    I agree with other posts. It is a great caliber, that shoots slightly flatter than the 30-06
    and hits a little harder (160 grain 7MM (vs.) 165 grain 30-06). Recoil is similar. The 30-06
    surpasses it i...

    For the money, the Bushnell 3X9X40 Elite 3200 with rainguard is a great buy. It is NOT fully
    multi-coated like its big brother the 4200, but can be had for under $200 in several outlets.
    Right now one...

  • Posted in thread: First Gun you ever Owned on 04-11-2008 at 05:05 PM
    At about age 7 as I recall, I got a Mossberg, bolt action clip fed .22 and I think it was a
    340K Rock Chucker or something similar to that. Killed a few woodchucks, crows etc. as a kid
    with it. Back t...

    Left a NEW post yesterday concerning the .338 Federal but can't find it anywhere on forum-
