    Which hunting rifles do you think most visually attractive!

    In my opinion, the Weatherbys with the glossy stock, inlays, etc. have to be the prettiest but I wouldn't want to carry them in rain, snow, etc.

    Misconceptions about Ohio's constitutional carry law

    There has already been at least one woman jailed in Ohio for having a concealed handgun who had read about Ohio constitutional carry on Facebook. Ohio constitutional carry, in my understanding, doesn't start until June.

    Magnum primers for Longshot in mild .44 Magnum?

    When you say "magnum primers" I presume you mean large pistol magnum primers. If I were doing it, I would use large pistol magnum primers, forget the standard deviations and see how the load prints on paper at the intended range to be shot at. If the results were unsatisfactory I might then...

    Sorry. Second question about groupings.

    That's not asking too much if you're willing to put some work into it. Work means tuning a load to your rifle in cases with one head stamp, an appropriate powder and bullets capable of good accuracy. FMJ bullets aren't known for excellent accuracy; I'd suggest a match bullet. Theoretically if...

    Using an endoscope for reloading

    I've never used an endoscope for reloading but I've gotten a very good look at some colons with one.

    What rifles for deer hunting this year?

    I'm going to use a CZ 550 Safari Magnum in 458 Lott because I want to use enough gun.

    Impending case head separation?

    Unless there is a groove on the inside of the case about where the bulge is, it's not an impending case head separation. Furthermore, a case head separation in a straight wall cartridge that has a pressure like the 44 Remington Magnum is very unlikely. On the other hand, I have had impending...

    Press Question: Reloading Rifle Cartridges

    I've loaded thousands of rifle cartridges on single stage presses (RCBS, Lee and Redding). I have never had the least desire to have a progressive press to reload them. Of the ones I've used, I favor RCBS.

    what's the deal on .40 SW?

    I agree and it never will be substantiated because those who could officially substantiate it would never publicly admit that there are compromises in having female officers. I worked with a guy that was involved in the scuffle the U.S. had down in Panama years ago. He shot an attacker in the...

    Dumb Hunting Question

    In Ohio the number depends on the county. None allow more than one buck. The total allowable is 1 to 4.

    what's the deal on .40 SW?

    The 40 S&W was popular with law enforcement but many decided to go back to the 9mm Parabellum. The reason, I was told by someone who should know, was that some shooters (females) could handle the 9mm better because of less recoil. A few years ago, one could get a LEO reject pistol in 40 S&W at...

    Year of the Persimmon

    Mine have multiple flowers on stalks. They’re definitely close enough together. Maybe I need another one.

    .308 Whitetail Hunting Bullet

    Several years ago I took 3 deer using a 308 Winchester loaded with Berger 168 grain Hunting VLD bullets. All were DRT. Last year I took 2 deer with a 22-250 using 55 grain varmint bullets. I don't think bullet weight is that critical as long as penetration is adequate. I'm sure 180 grain...

    She actually shot one

    Many years ago I made a rubber band gun that I loaded with China berries. When ripe, china berries are round, brown, wrinkled and about 1/2 inch in diameter and aren't edible. The rubber band gun is made with a straight stick like an old broomstick with a rubber band attached to the end of a...

    Year of the Persimmon

    I've had two persimmon trees for probably 5 or 6 years that seem to be doing well. They put on flowers but alas, so far no fruit. My Chinese chestnut tree, my Nanking cherry tree and my pears are doing VERY well.

    I was an idiot...

    I must have been on autopilot. I put 3 shells in the pocket of my pants and remember being careful to keep them from clunking around as I stalked some crows. I never got a shot at the crows but when I came indoors my pants were wet and I was sweaty and I put them in the washer. About halfway...

    I was an idiot...

    I was out with my shotgun loaded with 2 in the magazine and one in the chamber. I had an additional 3 shells in my pant's pocket. I got a bit sweaty so decided to wash my pants when I came indoors and forgot about the shells in the pocket. The pants will be out of the washer in a few minutes...

    Look what showed up this morning...

    The shot was a head shot. A lung shot or heart shot would have killed it but it wouldn't have been DRT with nary a twitch. The gun is very accurate and I take crows, ground hogs and raccoons with it frequently. A head shot at 75 yards on a coyote using a good rest wasn't much of a challenge...
