Do .410 factory loads still cost a small fortune? They certainly did through the ammo shortage!
Paid for the barrel and traded 100+ 308 win/ 7.62x51 cases, a 45 cal rcbs collet, 40 or so 3006 cases and an rcbs 308 win FL die set.
I also bought a 6.5 mm collet for my rcbs bullet puller.
$29.99 for a box of 25! Definitely expensive. Then add shipping and tax. Painful, but nobody around me (called about 4 gun stores and checked at Meijer) has .410.
They are killing us with the prices
Got the Derringer today so had to install the rosewood grips. Interesting the manual says to cock the gun before changing out the grips.
Also, I'm looking at tripods. The two I'm considering (a Vanguard "Quest" and a BOG "Havoc") are both about the same price (about $85), but the Vanguard has the highest "star" ratings as far as what I could find out on the internet.
So, I'll probably buy the Vanguard unless some of you good folks can give me some advice on what to look for in a hunting tripod. All I've ever used was an MTM "Shooter's Walking Stick." And I've mostly used that as a cane (a third leg) when traversing rough terrain. I can only remember using it once as a "monopod" of sorts for shooting a distant buck.
This year is different. My wife and I have been "scouting" the area where I'll (my wife didn't draw a tag there) be hunting deer this year, and it looks like 300+ yard shots are not only possible, they're probable. My beloved .308 Norma is perfectly capable of putting a bullet where it needs to go at 300+ yards. I'm not - not without a decent rest.
Today I read in Brownell's website that there was a longer sear, made to eliminate the problem of different spacings on 1911 clones. Hopefully this is the last thing I will have to do to the gun to get 100 % reliability.
more bullets to reload with .264 flavor
The bench is heavy, but I can easily flip it into my pickup body, upside-down, for moving it around.
It is posted here.
My Midway order just arrived! A hard Pelican gun case, a nice padded Boyt soft case, a Lyman case trimmer with a carbide cutter and pilot set and quick release magnet for picking up stainless media.
Small rifle, but my 9mm will fire them.
