    Glass bedding bolt action rifles

    Keep that fear while you apply release agent or grease whichever you choose to use. You'll be just fine.

    Best .38 Special Handloads

    My favorite bullet is an old 358477 150 grain. I've used it over 4 grains Bullseye, 5 grains Unique and 4.5 grains HP38 all shot well. Oh I used to do the Elmer Keith thing but not anymore.

    Advice Please

    Boys and Girls, I have accumulated a couple hundred dollars worth of Cabela's gift cards. Is the Ruger Wrangler worth it or not? I know, it's free anyway but I've always been a poor boy and still hate wasting money. .22 ammo is available and fairly reasonable. I refuse to give the price to...

    Vortex Crossfire II 4-12x 50mm Rifle Scope

    I think the scope would work good for you. Myself I like just a cross hair when I look through a scope no other lines in it at all.

    lever guns

    I have a Marlin 93 lever rifle that my Granddad gave me many years ago, like it a lot but I also like my Remington 760 slide action.

    EDC Knife

    The knife that rides in my pocket everyday year around is a Case full size Stockman. Three sharp blades. I've never had to cut a seatbelt but the last deer I shot I'd forgotten my Buck 110 so I field dressed said deer with the sheep's foot blade of the Case.

    Just bought one I’ve always wanted. But…

    I bought a new one several years back, nice rifle. Gave it to a Grandson who was starting to shoot. Only problem I had was wearing a long sleeved shirt with the cuff unbuttoned and it dropped a hot case down the shirt sleeve.

    Primer Price?

    Savage 30L if you lived closer I'd give you 2-3 hundred I have more than I'll probably shoot and I don't shoot the old '06 much anymore.

    Primer Price?

    Boys, I realize they are free to me but...........when we talk about inflation we have to take a hard look in the mirror. If we are willing to pay they are willing to take that price. We are part of the problem.

    Primer Price?

    Thank you Boys. I'm an old man that grew up on a farm in Kansas and have shot all of my life. I guess now at 80 I guess it is time for me to hang it up, damned if I'll get robbed for components and ammunition.
