    Ernie and others...

    Guy. I had a Trijicon Red Dot on my S&W 29 and the only issue that I had was operator inability to find the red dot when not perfectly aligned behind the Red Dot. I have sold the red dot and now rely on the factory iron sights. My main concern is having the model 29 handy in my chest holster...

    Firewood and wood heat

    Our main heat is oil. We burn wood most every night in cool and winter weather, in our fireplace with a metal insert and glass doors. It allows the heat to circulate into the room. Our wood is cut and split on our property. I typically cut up fallen timber, which lately has been hickory...

    Almost a real bad day

    Glad that you were not hurt.. I do a bit of turning on an old lathe that was my Fathers. One safety recommendation that I have been ignoring is no long sleave shirts while turning. I have been blessed in many ways. A quick youtube search for safe turning practices may be a good source of...

    Heart Attack while Hunting

    Hello Guy, Thank God you were with your son and able to get to the hospital in good time. I will hope and pray for a full recovery and many more healthy and happy hunting seasons ahead. I am set with reloads for my '06 thanks to the load development by NYDAN last may. I am short on good...

    The versatile 30-06.

    In 2013 my Montana Outfitter informed me that a 30 caliber would work better than my 270 Winchester for elk so I purchased a Left hand Remington 700 Classic in 30-06. Tagged out that year with one shot kills and have enjoyed success with the 30-06 on subsequent hunts. This year I hope to...

    Need Some 30-06 Help

    Glad to hear that you are doing better. Just for comparison, I have been tweaking H4350 180 grain loads for my Tikka 3X also a 22" barrel 30-06. NYDan using Quick load worked up a load for me and 56.5 grains of H4350 in new Nosler cases gives me 2723 +/- fps with 180 partitions and accubonds...

    How many left-hand shooters/hunters do we have here?

    I am a lefty and struggle with right hand tools and guns. My first true left hand rifle is a very nice Remington 700 BDL in .270 Winchester, which I still have. I was fortunate to purchase it through a friend who worked in the stock department at Remington in Ilion NY in the early 80's. In...

    Surprise, surprise from a used Marlin X7

    That old Leupold scope has been a good scope. It pleases me immensely to see it being used by a good young man who I know is a hard working family man. I look forward to hunting pictures this fall :~)

    Using old primers?

    HI, I have been absent from the forum due to computer issues, lost password during an earlier upgrade, then personal circumstances, health and relocation. I think my first post was not long after I started loading for my 30-06 in 2013. I found that NYDan resided about an hours drive from where...

    Using old primers?

    Recently saw a post on the forum about safety to pull loaded cases and the last post to the question that I saw was by Guy Miner, paraphrased here, remember personal safety.. safety glasses and go slow. I have personally been pulling bullets to obtain a supply to reload for this upcoming hunt...
