    Minimum safe loads- which data do I use

    I don't ever go all the way down to minimum rifle load data any more! For any new to me cartridge, I use to reload a ladder in duplicates starting at the book minimum for each potential powder I wanted to test. Some years ago I ran into the case not completely sealing at the min load. Since I...

    How much do you load up?

    Yes, I prefer one load for each rifle with the most suitable bullet for my rifle's chosen hunting purpose.

    Let's buy the perfect out west gun.

    I think your right on the correct starting point !!! I mean you won't be wrong with a 25-06 to 7 mag, but a 270 Win is the standard you should use judge the others. A 25-06 will do most everything a 270W will do with 10 gr less bullet wt. & a 270W will do most every thing a 7M will do with 10...

    1917 rifle to 9.3x62 ?

    Well Guy...You'll need to reload for the 9.3x62. You'll have great wide range of bullet choices: 250 NAB 286 NPT & 300 Swift-A If you don't plan to reloading, leave it as the 30-06.

    25-06 or 6.5 Creedmoor

    One question Brinky, Are you wanting a dedicated rifle just for coyotes or more of an all-around hunting rifle?

    Help need a vintage scope

    If you plan to shoot it and hunt, put a good scope on it. Take your time finding a vintage scope. put it on only when you decide to sell it.

    Air Guns Anyone?

    I've had a Benjamin-Sheridan .22 for many years. Kids like shooting it. Me - I use it for pest control.

    Pre-64 range time.

    Alderman, You got a nice rifle there! I like Pre-64 Model 70 Winchesters. Got 2 of'em - A 1939 and a 1942. Both will still shoot 1/2" or better groups at 100 yards. But they are the fussiest rifles I have when it comes to either factory ammo or my handloads. So keep experimenting. I know my 2...

    Favorite .270 loads

    I like 150 SGKs over IMR-4350. Real good BC - Will carry over 1,500 Ft-Lbs to 400 yards. Great accuracy - Have touched 3 at 200 and 5 five at 400 measured 1" wide 1.8" vertical.

    25 cal varmint

    remingtonman_25_06, I'm beginning to like the idea of a 25-06. Got a couple of 270s. Thought the 25-06 was too close. Don't have one - never paid it much attention. Until I helped a friend get his new 25-06 sighted in 3 years ago. He's killed several deer with it since - all one shot kills...

    Trigger over travel??

    Well...I think trigger over travel would be worse on accuracy than the speed of light but have a lesser effect than the rotation of the earth.

    I would hope your opinion isn't solely based on MSN reporting?!
