  1. I tried to sell off some of my good surplus 8mm a while back for $.40 and didn't get any takers or offers
  2. When you say the factory rounds grouped better makes me think that the reloaded rounds are not up to pressure. I will also tell you that old guns like old flat base bullets. In a 57 mm case I have had great results with AA 2520 and AA2700 with the heavier bullet weights
  3. Education and Information wise you have to have a warm place for the mash to work and when it stops working you either run it or add more sugar. You also need to make a trap of sorts with a bottom valve that goes between the cooker and the cooling coil otherwise if you get to really cooking the mash you will puke it and your whiskey will be milky
  4. My CVA Optima likes the Muzzleload Magnum products Sabots with a Montana Swagged 405gr lead above three Firestar triple 7 pellets.
  5. I'll take it. How far up I 24 do need to come?
  6. We have lost a couple recently that have provided a service for quite a few years. Sues and Lancaster's have called it quits. I had to hall my first one to Walkers in Lebanon formerly Lebanon locker. Roy is still there and it was good to see him. Many times I've seen them unable to accept more Deer because they were full to capacity. I feel certain they have been the victims of no one wants to work anymore and by their self are easily overwhelmed. Sumner, Trousdale and Smith have a need for few smaller operations to keep up the harvest quota.
  7. If for some reason this doesn't work out message me.
  8. Striker fired is not the 1911 type platform
  9. If it's striker fired like the Brownells ad said I'm not so sure. I'm pretty happy with the one I have
  10. Rob is your rifle a 9x57 or a 9.3 x57. I have opened up 8x57 for the 9.3x57 with no problems. Most of the brass that I have used is Remington 8x57. I will tell you that anytime you open up brass your OAL will be less. Annealed Military brass is probably thicker than commercial brass is to begin with and since these guns are all bolt action I wouldn't worry a whole lot about it. I would fire a light load in it to form it to the chamber and then neck size it from then on. I have had a lot of success with AA2520 in the 57 mm case. If you would like I have a few Norma 9.3 x57 cases that are new that I could be traded out of maybe. Let me know. Sunfish
  11. Soak those old presses in a 5 gallon bucket after taking off the grips or push out the pin and take the whole arm off. I mix up ATF with acetone and get some fine bronze wool and some rubber gloves and go at it.
  12. tie a drip bottle about 10 feet in the air with active scrape in it and you should get a look at some horns
  13. Skunks kill more than people realize. Fowl is high on the list and night time is their time for killing
  14. I can only speak to what I'm seeing in Sumner Co. and Trousdale Co. But they are slowly starting to stop people and Have noticed a need for it for sometime. The State patrol has been working certain areas and the Deputy Sheriffs are starting to reel in some of these idiots and I'm glad to see it. With the new Courthouse their building I have a feeling there is going to be some serious revenue collecting going on for sometime
  15. I've seen a few of these over the years that were converted to 303 Savage and I have no idea why anyone would want to except the bore matches up
  16. The way to get these to go away is to stop supporting them
  17. Do these light up right away or are they the newer type that wait until they are 200 yards out?
  18. As high as ammo is these days I'd bet they are impaired somehow and I wouldn't go over there for any reason. Let them talk to the Deputy Sheriff and if they are hopped up on something they will figure out not to do that anymore and could get a trip to town out of the deal.
  19. Been going on as long as I can remember late 80's early 90's
  20. 06 Brass will work if you run it through a 8mm Full length first with some imperial sizing wax. I would fire form it to define the shoulder before I worked up very high. Your only talking about .030 . If you really have to have 35 Whelen brass I might trade you something for some. Message me I don't have a lot of time through the week
  21. Use the 240 or 250 gr. size shot and blow there heads off unless your walking with a shotgun.
  22. I heard on the way home. They played together since 1969.
  23. Does anyone have a clue what is really going on? The whole lead situation seems to be on the skids.
