Around the Campfire (General Discussion) / Lyman bag jack experiences?
« on: April 16, 2018, 01:21:49 PM »
Thinking of ordering the Lyman bag jack so I don't have to carry around as many sand bags.Any experiences with it. Thanks

Scope is $399 at Midway and $379 at Optics Planet.IMO the Pro Staff 5 line is the best bang for the buck glass out there.And yes I did order one.It is on close out at Natchez. https://www.natchezss.com/nikon-prostaff-5-sf-rifle-scope-4-5-18x40mm-fine-crosshair-reticle-5-6-22-4-4-matte.html

We got this about an hour ago.The pond in the picture was not full before the storm.

I guess the buying spree is on. BTW I found the .375 bullets I wanted there for $45 with their price match.Midsouth and Natchez prices were $49 and change.Midway over $56.Shipping pretty much a wash unless you find one that is offering free if you buy so much.

Thinking of buying some 350 SMK bullets to try in my 375 Ruger.I can't find a COL for it in my manuals and even called Sierra to see what they suggested.Well, they had no idea.Told them it was their bullet and why not? They hadn't tried it.Maybe my googling skills are not what they used to be but I can't find anything.I can do some playing with them if I have to.But it would sure be nice if someone could find a COL in their reloading manuals. Thanks.

I have not seen Ms Shiela as a moderator here in quite a while or noticed that anyone mentioned her name when they called Weatherby? She was always so nice and helpful.

https://www.midsouthshooterssupply.com/ I didn't see anything about this on the Lyman website though.

Not me. Latest raffle was Saturday nite.I bought ten tickets for 10 guns.Some pretty good guns some not.Hell I would be happy to win a Red Ryder after all this time.LOL I don't really mind because the money most times goes to 4H clubs or scholarships for kids as this one did.Anyone luckier than me?

Around the Campfire (General Discussion) / Tried out my new 45-70 today.

I had been looking at a 450 Busmaster to replace my Ruger No 1 in 45-70.But after due deligence researching I decided to go with the .458 bullet compared to the .452 and more speed reloading with heavier bullets.Bought a CVA Scout Stainless that came with a 22.5 inch barrel,25 overall with the KDF brake it came with.Crisp 2.75 trigger pull.Loaded up a one load of H4895 (not the preferred powder) Some H4198 bought that is supposed to work best but didn't get it in time to reload with 300 grain Combined Technology bullets,325 Hornady Flex Tips, and 300 Hornady XTPs.The 100 yd group pictured is with the 300 CT before darkness got me before I could try the others.Very happy with no load development.Scope is a Nikon 3-9 Inline 300 BDC that should be pretty close to the 45-70 for drop.

Friend brought this by. Whiskey barrel aged. 12.9 percent Alcohol.You better like dark and heavy though.

Came home from shooting today and 2 guys walking around on corner of my property at the road on one side.Turned around in my driveway and went back to see what was going on.Guy was very friendly and says I know you from the restaurant I work at.I did recognize him.I said you are on my property(my hand is in my back pocket on my pistol all the time we are talking) He said we just bought this.Actually a few weeks ago I had seen the same car and 2 guys looking at the real estate sign on the corner that had been run over and took it they were just putting it back up for some land that was for sale down that road.Told them it was my land and maybe I should call the sheriff.Asked for their bill of sale and they said they were waiting for it to come through.Hmmm a big screw up somewhere maybe.Going to call the realtor listed on the sign in the morning to get their story.

My FFL called and said I had a rifle there.My Nightforce 25th Anniversary 10-22 came in.Nightforce was on the ball on this 2 weeks after I sent in my info and my FFL contacted them.Only cost me a $25 transfer fee.
UPS delivered my 30 inch select match 204 barrel.Right at a 4 month wait.
