Posted in thread: Mosin Nagant Model 1891/30 - Home defence? on 11-26-2010 at 04:51 PM
It is my opinion a shotgun would be the best home defense firearm. I would use number 6 or
7/one half because I don`t like to shoot through walls.

That's a 1:48 twist not 1:28:D. Caps will be #11. I like CCI best. I used 90 grs. of Pyrodex
behind either a Lee REAL or a maxi ball but both require a short starter. Use real black if you
can get it,...

No, it is the Elks fault, our game and fish commission has the White Earp syndrome like a lot
of federal and state employees. That is my opinion. The farmers are on their own yet federal
and state mon...

The 223 round is horrible for anything other than a varmint round and will never leave a blood
trail to find a wounder deer unless you have dogs. It makes you a good shot or a wounded deer
which you m...

The farmers in North West Arkansas are having problems with the Elk because of destroyed fences

The M1A would be a good choice based on your question. The 7.62 by 51 is a lot more potent

I really don`t like the P 38 because it has two small recoil springs compared to other pistols
having one large recoil spring. Shotgun News has a P38 in excellent condition for $350 and I
believe it h...
Posted in thread: Hi power vs Beretta on 11-19-2010 at 08:00 PM
I like the high power better because it had a frame mounted safety and is single action. The 40
is the better round in my opinion but maybe high power`s are made in 40 caliber. I have a
Browning high ...
Posted in thread: what size ball on 11-19-2010 at 07:54 PM
I would use a mini-ball for the 58 caliber. They are rather easy to cast. You could buy a Lee
mold from Midway for about $20. There is a method to making wheel weights softer and it is very

A friend of mine called me asked why a 200 grain cast bullet was weighing only 160 grains after
it was cast. I replyed the metal might be made from Babot and you could identify it by looking
