I loved the PIF thread. What an I supposed to do with my unwanted bullets now?
I expected the jacket to give up. It's only made to hold up to the 218 bee. It was actually listed in my Speer manual.
That's the point I was trying to make. For 6 years the only deer rifle I had was an SKS. Even though it wasn't the best option, I made it work.
I personally dislike the 243 even on deer. It lacks the extreme velocity. It also doesn't have the bullet weight or diameter of larger cartridges....
27.0 in LC cases 26.8 in GFI or PPU.
My wife's 260 and 30-30 have stayed ready. I'm still spinning my wheels on where I want to hunt this year, but my 357 Rossi is ready. My 240 is in...
I finally got around to testing the 70RDF bullets and got 3" plus groups. So I started scrounging around my bench and found a bag of 40gr hollow...
It is a large plywood box. There are no exit holes on the back. My blocks are stacked sideways, not lengthways. If you don't believe me, try...
I knew you were joking. I had to go back and re-read his post to see that he actually didn't mention the cartridge when I read your first post.
Urban dictionary... Always good for learning slang.
Does that 25gr stick out the end of the barrel?
I guess he didn't specify and we took it for granted it was a 223.
I see. Your in the same boat as me. My 240wby is 10 twist also. It does great with a 100 flat base and the 95 gr NBT.
I love seeing someone take the time to bring something back to life.
Standing it in the corner where a dog can pee on it might ;)
I've had acceptable results from it also. Followed by coats of Johnson's paste wax.
Here's data from an old RCBS cast bullet manual.
I used to use 12 gr of universal and 9 gr of 700x with a 205 gr.
How did that happen? I use a 3'x4' box that is stacked with hackberry branches about 2-4" in diameter. For the first couple months I restacked the...
I run VMAX and AMAX on deer. I am selective on what shots I take though. That would fit my goals exactly.
I thought you had an 06 from previous posts.
Do you have enough twist to run the eld? It would match your velocity and range better than the...
I'd buy some 147gr hollow points designed for the 9mm and load it hot. If that failed, I'd go to the 158xtp.
Those 53s don't even stabilize in a 22-250 1-14 twist or my 1-12 223. So don't go too crazy loading a bunch of them.
If they work well, they are...
