  1. In my experience, Blackhorn is quite a bit cleaner than White Hots. In range testing, I was able to go 5-6 shots with Blackhorn without even a dry patch through the bore and still maintain accuracy, while I could not get anywhere close to that with White Hots (maybe 2-3). Only downside is Blackhorn is a loose powder only, and so is not as convenient. White Hots did well with my chosen projectile (Barnes SpitFire TMZ, 250gr).
  2. I also have a CVA Acura MR with the nitride Bergara barrel - quite satisfied with accuracy through 200 yards using Blackhorn 209 powder (requires purchase of a separate Quick Release Breech Plug to use Blackhorn powder). Performance is quite good with IMR White Hots, Pyrodex pellets, etc - Blackhorn is just so much cleaner.
  3. Several folks I shoot with use Wally World Federals with no problem at all. Not sure how well those hulls might reload, if you are ever inclined to go that route though. Remmie Gun Club/STS/Premier will reload a bunch of times before giving up the ghost - I've got some Gun Club hulls that I've reloaded 7-8 times at least and they are still good. I've migrated to shooting 7/8 oz at 1275 fps for singles and first shot doubles, and 1 oz at 1275 for handicap and second shot doubles (both using size 7 1/2 shot). Saves significant wear and tear on these old shoulders.
  4. Shoot well! Have a couple of friends from up here at Kettlefoot who are making the trip for the prelims on Wed, Thurs and Fri. Hope y'all get a break from the heat...
  5. Upon holding this one in my hand, I can say that the pics do not do it justice - an incredible piece of work. Thanks again, sybo - fantastic piece!

    I enjoyed hiding puzzle caches. Some required a bit of cipher-busting, some required internet searches...even did a "Hoplophilia" series of caches where you had to retrieve info RE caliber, military designations, history etc to solve. They were all well-received in the area. Multi's are pretty cool, too - you can have a lot of fun with those.

    Wife and I played to about 8 years or so, until grandkids and health issues created a need for a course correction. Lotta fun, and sure saw a lot of places I never know existed. Enjoy!
  8. Smoked wings on my Weber Smoky Mountain cooker.
  9. Haslam took the (typical) chicken$hit way out: he didn't veto it, but he didn't sign it either.  So it will go into effect, yet he can still say he didn't support it.
  10. Here's the text of what actually passed (from Garufa's post).  Paper the bird cage with it.   SECTION 1. Tennessee Code Annotated, Title 39, Chapter 17, Part 13, is amended by adding the following as a new section: (a) A person, business, or other entity that owns, controls, or manages property and has the authority to prohibit weapons on that property by posting, pursuant to §39-17-1359, shall be immune from civil liability with respect to any claim based on such person's, business's or other entity's failure to adopt a policy that prohibits weapons on the property by posting purs
  11. Looks like you are correct.  The House substituted with the Senate bill, which was passed in the Senate with amendments 1, 2, 4 and 5 attached.  SA0999 was Amendment 3.
  12. As Omega opined, you'd pretty much hafta know it as soon as you pulled the loader handle cause the crimp would be beyond horrible.  I grabbed a wad that was missing the powder cup once (Downrange manufacturing mistake) and used it - fingers of the crimp went so deep I could just pour the shot straight back into the bottle with no problem.
  13. Here's the entire content of the bill, as amended:   SECTION 1. Tennessee Code Annotated, Title 49, Chapter 7, Part 1, is amended by adding the following as a new, appropriately designated section: No public postsecondary institution shall take any adverse or disciplinary action against an employee or student of the postsecondary institution solely for such person's transportation and storage of a firearm or firearm ammunition in compliance with § 39-17-1313 while on or using a parking area located on property owned, used, or operated by the postsecondary institution. SECTION 2. This ac
  14. And you really think, with the buttload of money Haslam is sitting on and can magically funnel in any direction he pleases (through his variety of PACs), that those you just mentioned (such as Harwell, McCormick, Kelsey, Sargent, Coley ad infinitum) will just dismiss his "desires" and go about their merry way?  Not in this state...
