I really enjoyed meeting Doug ( Blackbear3)in Ennis,Tx Saturday morning for Shilens Swap Meet and tour of their facility. The guys were running some machinery to show us the process barrels are made and would stop to answer any questions we had.I am attaching some pictures of the process and machinery.They do a lot of hand lapping on the barrels as well as using the machinery. The picture with screen in is in in their Quality Control room where they using a bore scope to check out the rifling. They showed us how they air gauge their barrels for premium quality. Doug found a great BBQ place in Ennis. Did you make it to Luckenbach,Tx for the concert Doug?

Any experiences?

This has probably been posted before but I thought I would put it back up for those that hadn't seen it.https://www.chuckhawks.com/primers.htm

If any others could make it we could visit there.If you are interested PM me and I will send you my phone number so we can find each other there.

Pictures from Sunday of a 458 Hornady DGS 500 grain bullet shot at a MV of 2200 FPS.Shot into 1/2 inch plywood then a small chest freezer filled with dirt at 50 yards.This bullet just split the back wall of the freezer without fully exiting.Some of the tip damage may be from digging it out.None of the others made it this far.

I appreciate all the suggestions in a previous post for buying my great Niece or Nephew their first rifle.Some I may even have to buy for myself. My nephew called me today and they found out it was going to be a boy.If it had been a girl I had a pink rifle picked out.I ordered a Savage Rascal FVSR single shot with a heavier barrel that is threaded for a Suppressor today.I love Accutriggers and I wanted to train Winn on a bolt gun with a safety like most of the hunting rifles he would be using.Now to decide on a 2-7 power scope for it. He may as well have a variable power like the big boys.I had my nephew shooting an AR at 5.I figure I will have his son shooting this rifle at 4. ;D

Never seen this before but I have not bought much commercial ammunition in a long time. The boxes is made so you can separate it and have 2 ten round boxes of ammo.

If so what are you using? Mine is the Taurus Raging Bull in 454 Casuall with a Leupold VX3 2.5-8x32 pistol scope.Wolff trigger spring kit added.250 grain Hornady XTP Mag bullets stoked with H110 powder. 100yd 0,  1 inch high at 50 yd and 2.1 inches low at 125 yds.

This special is at Brownells. They had most of what I wanted this time so I ordered up. 8 lbs each of H4895 and H4350 and 1 lb of CFE223. Only thing they didn't have I need is H110.

Found out my nephew and his wife are going to have a baby in September. And I will be there to give him or her their first gun the day after they are born. ;D I am thinking of the Henry mini bolt youth rifle. Any other suggestions? https://www.henryusa.com/rifles/mini-bolt-youth/

I use Shilen for my barrels and they sent me this info today. Selling barrels that no one picked up,changed their minds on etc.,they will be running some machines,people bring Reloading equipment, supplies etc to sell.Free entry and free lunch.I am planning to go. Thought DW and some of the Dallas area members might be intersed.

When I put on my pants every day I put a pocket rocket in my back pocket and don't take it out until I go to bed.Yes I do have a CCL. Usually a KelTec 32 in a Desantis pocket holster and sometimes a Beretta 21A or a NAA 22 Mag mini revolver.Point and shoot guns that I practice with.The big boys are in the truck and house.
