Re: White Breech plug vent liner??

Doc clams some guns with 20k shots on original BP. He says he sells spares because some guys like the security, (mostly for loss) but the BP should be lifetime.

Re: Remington Filing For Bankruptcy

The quality may have dropped as of late, but there's no way the whole company can go under. There's already a market demand. The 700 is an icon, and even with some QC issues as of late, their shotguns cant fade away. Someone will pick up the patents and machinery and keep that ball rolling. I dont t...

Re: Used gun hunt

I know a guy, who never cleans his guns, never has for decades. every year he has to buy a new gun, he usually swaps the scope and rings over, sights in and hunts every year. I think lately its just a new CVA wolf. (or whatever he can find cheapest) I dont know what he does with the old rust tubes. ...

Re: Tominator, Thunder, or TK2000?

I like the same unslit wads. You can control the pattern somewhat by how many, and how far down you slit. Typically for turkey, I slit 3-4 about halfway down. When using open or medium choke for small game, i'll slit 4 all the way. you can play with how you slit and pattern them. Some guys just use ...

Re: Tominator, Thunder, or TK2000?

I have both. Since they are slam fire, and not Blackhorn powder compatible, In my opinion, there is no advantage at all to shotgun primers. I see no performance advantage in either, they both have interchangeable chokes. knight is jug choked, white is straight rifled. Either is a 50 yard+ gun. It co...

Re: Remington Ultimate

Whats the life span on those cases? do the fouling primers count as a shot off life expectancy? I have a RUM, Ive never shot. I really just want the action, but Ive been toying with rebarreling it in .50 with LRMP module (HIS system) so its the same gun, BH, or even smokeless compatible.

Re: The wait begins

theres no way they were shooting 100 yards with primer alone. Those speeds are ballpark correct for primers, but even if you lobbed them, I doubt they would penetrate saran wrap at 50 yards. Pedersoli makes a 5.5mm 'parlor gun' (.177) that's fired by shotgun primers alone, But I doubt even that woul...

Re: The wait begins

yep, you never have to worry about a dryball. shooting level, the primer alone bloops the ball about 25-30 yards till it hits ground. the 209s make a pretty good crud ring with black in a small bore. Blackhorn works fine, But will probably need some fine tuning in a 48 twist. you will need a pistol ...

Re: Little Barnes

They are (A.) designed for ~800-950 fps, so typically fall under ML speed. Usual rule for us is to keep impact velocity OVER ~900 fps.
and (B.) pretty light for the usual ML palette. I doubt they have ever been tried in ML, especially smokeless

Re: choosing a hunting cast bullet.

the majority of those bulk pistol bullet casters use hard cast, usually way too hard for hunting purposes. OK for plinking, but questionable for ML hunting. You are better off casting your own. For this, Its pretty hard to beat one of the Accurate mold designs for use in sabot. I cant really say a h...

I thought about a whelen when I started my last .36. This next one should be right to shoot .35 whelen as bore riders. Maybe try some paper patch. Im kinda hoping upping the speed past GG restrictions may give the range. still a few months out.

Be nice if they had a custom shop. Then they just keep current production models, but you could get a .45 fast twist UL, or a.32, or... How much more could it be for GM to take any barrel, and machine the Knight action.
